    Quilt Sizing up

    I'm new to the quilting world but not sewing. I've decided to make a quilt for my son and have ran into a snag. I've found a pattern I like but it's for a crib. I'm looking to make a full size Disappearing 9 Patch quilt and not sure how to find the right yardage for the quilt. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

    Do a search for the D9P chart. Someone on the board posted a great chart for the amount of fabric needed and the number of different sized blocks to make for all sizes of quilt. I don't remember who posted the chart.

    I found who posted the chart, katier825 posted the chart and it a really good one for sizing D9P quilts. The post came up quickly when I searched.

    Or you could decide how many Crib Quilts would be in the size you want to make and up your yardage accordingly!

    I would use whatever yardage needed for the crib size and multiply the number by 3.

    here's a link to the pdf that katier posted http://www.quiltingboard.com/attachm...ent-251237.pdf
    it doesn't give the yardages, though, but may help you
