    Is there a quilt yardage calculator?

    Is there one or a graph? If not, is there any easy way to figure out yardage?

    There is an older book titled "Taking The Math Out of Quilting" that is useful.

    I have a book called "The Quilter's Pocket Reference" it was recommend by my local quilt shop. The book sells for less than $10 and it provides calculations for yardage, and a bunch of other great calculations.

    I have to agree, just use a coupon, they are indispensable and worth the extra dollar

    I had to laugh at myself when I first read your question and some of the comments; I'm thinking I don't need one of those. I just finished another quilt that I've got enough fabric left over to make another quilt. Every time a make a quilt without using a complete pattern I buy way more fabric than I need LOL!

    If you have a smart phone or iPod Robert Kaufmann & Quilters Paradise has a Free app with 8 types of calculators in it. You can take it with you shopping!

    I second this recommendation. It's a very handy tool.
