Default Accuquilt help

I just received the accuquilt go for Christmas and have the dwr die on the way. I have the fabric picked for the quilt (I am doing solid arcs instead of scrap pieces) but I have NO IDEA how much to get for a queen size quilt! Can anyone help?

Here is the link to the wall hanging. You could figure in multiples from this.

There usually is a fabric chart and pattern on the die package.

I really like my accucut for strips and other geometric shapes, but i LOVE it for curved pieces!!!
Please post a picture of your quilt when it's done.
As BellaBoo said, there is info in the die package, but the Accucut site also has patterns, many of them are free but for some reason, they want two bucks for this one :

the patterns normally will have fabric requirements and construction tips.

Here is a good one to get, it's free, and has lots of blocks that you can create with the geometric dies:

A lot of fabric. I did all small pieces . The patterns I used all had information some where as to amounts for different amounts look over patterns. This is part of mine.
This is a ninth of my quilt as I divided it into 9sections with 9 circles in each and after joining a 9circles and sandwiches and quilted then joined. Sorry no photos taken of more pieces. In too big a rush to finish. It went over a double bed usually largest in UK. .

I have a book for the DWR with solid arcs. The measurements for the quilt are 89x100. The yardage needed for the center and melon shapes is 8 yards. The connecting corners 3 yards and the arcs 5 1/2 yards. The backing needs 8 yards. I hope this gives you some ideas of the amount of fabric needed.
