What yardage for a D9P
How many yards of fabrics for a twin size D9P? YBR says 6 yds for a twin, but I always have lots leftover. Would like to use 3 or 4 different fabrics - Center block the same fabric - corners the same fabric - not a scrappy. Any thoughts would be appreciated. :-)

i think it depends on what size block you are starting with- the yardage is going to be different if making 6" , 8", 10" or 12" blocks- and what size twin you are planning to make--drape? long-twin? (pillow tuck?)
for anyone to do the math for you they need to know the actual measurements of the quilt you want to make- the size blocks you plan to make- borders?

Ckcowl is right. Give us your intentions and we can give you a better estimate of yardage needed. D9P are so fun to make and the blocks are fun to arrange. Good luck.

Thank you both - the real story is I have made table runners/tops using the D9P and my quilting friend loved the pattern and decided she wanted to make quilts for her grandchildren's twin beds. I don't find a pattern to use - I used scraps with a definite color pattern for my runners. I assumed someone on here would have made a twin D9P - I have seen some pretty queen ones here. I will get more info. Thanks!

As suggested ... it all depends!

You could start by making one D9P block, the way you want ... and then calculate from there as to what would be needed for the desired end result.

here is the link that i had to a quick pieced d9p that uses a layer cake (10" squares). you can add a border to make it larger.

Decide size of block and then Calculate based on a regular nine patch then subtract 1/2"for finished size of the DP9 to know how many blocks you will need. The DP9 reduces the regular 9 patch by 1/2" This should give you instructions.
