1. Question about fabric math

Acckkk ... I know this is probably an easy thing to figure out, but I haven't been able to, at least not with any degree of confidence. I have a pattern that calls for several of the colors, not in yardage, but "ten 10-inch squares." How many 10-inch squares are there in a yard of fabric? Thanks in advance. Help me keep the rest of my hair! lol

2. It will depend on the useable width (i.e. after removing the selvage). Assuming
you have a useable width of 40" then you can have 12 x 10" squares.
4 in width (40"/10"= 4) and 3 in length (36"/10" = 3.6).

3. Yep, I get 12 squares too!

4. If my fabric is 36 inches long and 22 inches wide folded, I would get 12 -10 inch squares with a little left over on the length. If I got 1 yard and 1/4, I could get an extra 4 more squares. As posted, it depends on the folded width of your fabric.

5. Thank you so much!! My brain and I appreciate it :-)

6. Here's a link to a nice chart. It tells you how many squares are in a yard depending on the square size.

7. Yes, 4 in the 40 WOF and 3 in the length. You can get 16 blocks if you get if you buy 41 inches of fabric instead of a yard which is 36 inches.

8. And don't forget that you will lose some width due to the seam allowances.

9. Yes, I come up with 12 squares. You only need 30" in length so if you are buying fabric, you can purchase 7/8 of a yard.
