Robert Kaufman Fabrics and Quilter's Paradise have joined forces to bring you a collection of eight essential quilting calculators.
With these calculators you'll be able to quickly convert between yards and inches, meters and centimeters; learn how much fabric you need for backing, batting and borders; and determine how many rectangular pieces can be cut from a larger piece. There are even calculators for square-in-a-square, set-in and corner triangles.
Here's a brief description of each calculator:
Fabric Measurement Converter: Converts between inches and yards in decimal form, and yards in fractional form. (With metric equivalents.)
Backing and Batting Calculator: Determines how much material from a bolt of fabric is needed to make the backing for a quilt.
Piece Count Calculator: Shows the number of fixed-sized pieces of fabric that can be cut from a larger piece.
Pieces to Area Calculator: Indicates how much fabric is needed in order to cut a given number of fixed-sized pieces.
Binding Calculator: Tells you the amount of fabric required to bind your quilt, based on the quilt’s dimensions and the binding strip width.
Border Calculator: Shows the amount of fabric required to create borders, based on a quilt’s dimensions and the width of the borders.
Square-in-a-Square Calculator: Works out the key dimensions of a square-in-a-square block.
Set-in and Corner Triangle Calculator: Determines the size of the square piece you’ll need to cut in order to create both unfinished set-in triangles and unfinished corner triangles.
What's New in Version 2.4
I love to quilt and I have been using excel worksheet to determine the amount of fabric I need and how to lay out my quilt based on the size. This app is great and so far has everything I have been looking for, and IT IS FREE! Love it!
I've used this app for a while, but the latest update is inaccurate. When calculating the binding, it consistently says I need 1 yard of fabric. Four strips @ 2 1/2" or seven strips at 2 1/2" -- fabric required is 1 yard.
I'm sure this would be a good app if you knew how to use it. I just want to know how many yards of fabric I need to buy to make a quilt.
