Welcome to the Quilting Board!

OR

1. I have a pattern for Patience Corner that I would like to do for a baby quilt but I want to make it bigger so here is the problem MATH I hated it in school and still do....................... It says you can get 12 blocks out of 6 Fat Quarters (blocks finished size 9 inches) I need 25 blocks and do not want to get fat quarters so can someone please convert fat quarters into yardage for me? I will need 6 different colors.

Has anyone done this pattern? Don't know why I just really like it.

2. 4 fat quarters are equal to one yard of fabric. They are getting 12 blocks from 6 so that is 1 1/2 yds. For 25 blocks you are going to need 3 yards plus enough fabric for one additional block. I would be buying 3 1/2 yards to be on the safe side.

3. 6 FQ = 1.5 yards = 12 blocks
12 FQ = 3 yards = 24 blocks

So you need a little more than 3 yards for 25 blocks. How much more? I'd go with 2.5 yards just to be safe.

4. MadQuilter you and I were doing the math at the same time:-)

6. I know that much but my question is a 1/4 yard is far different than a Fat Quarter. If I got just a 1/4 yard would I still get the correct amout of squares out of it for the blocks?
6 fat quarters= 12 , 9 inch blocks would I get the same out of 6 1/4 yard cuts?

7. I would say you need 3 1/4 yards. Just to be safe (and make the math easier) I'd bump it up to 3 1/2 yards. Divide that by 6 different fabrics and you'll need about 5/8 of each.

I always err on the side of caution, so I'd probably get 3/4 yard, but that's just me. I'd use the leftovers for binding or another project.

Hope this helps!

8. You will need to cut 9 1/2 blocks to finish up 9 inches.
You can cut 4 blocks across the width of the fabric.
You will need to purchase 1/3 yd of each fabric in order to get the 9 1/2 inch heighth.
However, with 6 fabrics, that will give you 4x6 blocks for a total of 24 blocks. You still need one more block. Do you have a 9 1/2 inch block from your stash that you can use? Or perhaps a white block in the center with an applique, or a block from the backing fabric.

9. 6 fq's = 1 1/2 yd
so 3 yds would give you 24 blocks-
one more fq would give you enough for 25 blocks plus a little (fudge room)
so 3 1/4yds is all you need

10. oops double post

Technically, a FQ has the same number of square inches as a conventional/skinny quarter yard of fabric.

A lot depends on the layout of the pieces. Do you have a link to the pattern you want to use?

To answer this part, since you'll need more than half a yard of each fabric, you will have the width you need. It will be like getting two fat quarters of the same fabric. You should be able to manage it so that you can get the 25th block out of the fabric as well.

13. I would say at least 3 1/4.

14. I recreated the quilt in EQ with 25 9" blocks and six different fabrics. I'm including the results below. I would still bump up the yardage a little bit, just so you don't get caught short.

15. Thank You LyndaOh you are great!!!!!

16. My pleasure!

17. wow i am impressed

18. Are these ladies good or what! Good luck!

6 FQ = 1.5 yards = 12 blocks
12 FQ = 3 yards = 24 blocks

So you need a little more than 3 yards for 25 blocks. How much more? I'd go with 2.5 yards just to be safe.
There is a typo here 3.5 yards to be safe :)

20. Thanks to all you are a bunch of great people, like I tell new people don't be scared to ask a question, there is tons of knowledge on this board and wonderful people to help.

21. I like the pattern

22. Seeee you guys are so awesome - someone asks, you deliver
6 FQ = 1.5 yards = 12 blocks
12 FQ = 3 yards = 24 blocks

So you need a little more than 3 yards for 25 blocks. How much more? I'd go with 2.5 yards just to be safe.
:thumbup: :thumbup:

6 FQ = 1.5 yards = 12 blocks
12 FQ = 3 yards = 24 blocks

So you need a little more than 3 yards for 25 blocks. How much more? I'd go with 2.5 yards just to be safe.
oops, she meant 3.5 yards to be safe :wink:
