Frequently Asked Questions

My quilt top is pieced, and I am ready for quilting then binding. How much fabric do I need for backing and binding?

Head on over to Design/ Size A Quilt Calculator. Treat your quilt top like a giant block.

  1. Measure the width and length of the quilt top.
  2.  In the Design / Size A Quilt Calculator, enter those measurements in the Block Width and Block Length fields.
  3. Where it asks for Blocks Across and Blocks down, enter “1” in each field.
  4. In the results, your Actual Quilt Width should be the measurements of your quilt top and the Number of Blocks should be “1”.
  5. Binding and backing fabric requirements and cutting instructions should be displayed.
