Robert Kaufman Fabrics and Quilter’s Paradise have joined forces to bring you a collection of eight essential quilting calculators.
You’ll be able to quickly calculate how much fabric is needed for backing, batting and borders, and 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. All calculators work with both U.S. and metric measurements.
Our calculators are so useful that you’ll soon start wondering how ever worked without them! Calculators include:
Fabric Measurement Conversion: Converts between measurement in decimals and fractions.
Backing and Batting Calculator: Determines how much yardage 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 may 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 all 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.
This application features rotary-cutting directions for over 500 options for making traditional quilt blocks, plus bonus reference tables every quilter needs.
The Block Tool is a useful deck of “cards” that picture a quilt block along with rotary cutting measurements to make it in different sizes. Introduce quilting to children while you design quilts together using these cards. It’s fun for all ages.
