Default Nordic star quilt - HELP

I'm starting my. Iargest project yet, I'm self taught and need help calculating fabric yardage. I'm going to make a Nordic star quilt (full/double), with sashing, so I will need 15 - 12" blocks. I've found the block pattern here, scroll down for the large star:

I need to figure out how many yards I need of each fabric to make 15 of these things, please help! Thank you 😊

Howdy & welcome to the Quilting Board from Texas. You have picked out a very pretty block for your next quilt. I can't help you with yardage but I know that there are so many quilters on this board who can & will be along to help you with your problem. Please post pictures as you make this & let us see your finished beauty.

Not knowing the planned layout for your quilt, I can only give yardage for the 15 blocks, which will not include sashing or borders.

Dark fabric - 1.25 yds
medium " - 1 yd
background - 2 yds

Hope this helps, and if you need to know the extra amount for sashing etc, do p.m. me.

Welcome to the forum! I looked at your link, did you notice she states the block is 13" unfinished? This would make a 12 " finished block, which is fine as long as you aren't planning on combining it with 12" finished blocks.

Welcome to the board!

Maybe this site will help: http://www.quiltersparadiseesc.com/C...Calculator.php

If not I'm sure there will be many others that will weigh in

Thank you!!!! Oh my goodness, that's great 😄 I'm going to work out the sashing, I'm part pattern follower and part eye-baller.

Yes, of course! I'm so excited. It's for my best friend, so it's a labor of love for sure 😊

Sorry, I can't help with that one but it's so pretty!
It's coincidental- I just signed up for her blog a few days ago
