    Eddie, I was amazed that you did quilting to start out with and now to find out you're doing a tutorial for a CW, blows me away. It's great. I'll be with you every step of the way. I did a CW pillow but I have never attempted to do a quilt. I didn't know this could be done on the sewing machine. My mother-in-law made a CW quilt but she did it all by hand.I'm interested in how it's done by machine ,so I can do one myself. Thanks bunches for doing this. I'm an old gal but I can still learn something new.

    It depends on the size of your finished blocks since smaller blocks will take more material. But assuming a 4" finished size block and a twin size of 60" x 80", the math works out like this:

    60" quilt width / 4" block size = 15 block width
    80" quilt length / 4" block size = 20 block length
    15 block width x 20 block length = 300 blocks

    Using an 8.75" raw block size to make those 4" blocks, you can get 5 blocks from a single cut width of fabric (WOF).

    300 blocks / 5 per WOF strip = 60 WOF strips needed
    60 WOF strips * 8.75" each = 525 linear inches of fabric needed
    525" of fabric / 36" per yard = 14.58 yards of fabric

    So about 15 yards of background fabric for a twin size quilt.

    You did a great job and your instructions are very well done. I like to be shown how to do things and that was great. Maybe I will try that in a couple of months I got a few other things to do first. Thanks again. Dee
