Size Your Quilt

To use the fabric calculators below, you will need to know the finished block size and the number of blocks for your quilt. Use the Design / Size A Quilt Calculator here to design your quilt then use the results to find fabric requirements for the number and size bowtie blocks you’ll need. This calculator also gives your fabric requirements and cutting instructions for any sashing and borders you add as well as backing and binding requirements.

Block Construction – Rotary Cutting

In this tutorial for rotary cutting, the AC units shown below are made using the Stitch and Flip or Folded Corner Clipper method.
