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 1.9
We are releasing improved calculation logic for the Binder calculator.
Love, love, love this app
I am a alterations business owner who is working in a quilting shop. This app has just brought me up to speed and made my life so much easier. Not only will I be of more assistance at the shop in a more timely way but I also have way more confidence when asked for advice. This is a win for the customer, win for the owner of the shop, and a huge win for me. Who knows.... There may even be hope for me as a quilter. Thank you. PS also Love your fabrics. Was surprised to not see the shop listed in the "find a retailer" area.
I used the heck out of this app on my current quilt project. Finally figured it out. I checked it a couple of times & it seemed accurate. I couldn't have moved forward w/out it. I'm so very thankful for this great app! Keep up the good work. Would love it if u could put in dimensions larger than fabric width & it could figure it out for you. How many pieces to cut to make the correct length of specific piece? A great programming feat. Thx for the app, love it.
I am new to quilting. It is my favorite new hobby. While shopping at my local quilting store a very helpful sales person told me about this app. OMG.......I can't believe how helpful it is. I have it loaded on my phone as well as my I pad. Wouldn't dream of making a quilt without using this app.
