Strips per yard chart- A very handy tool!

As a quilter, I am often befuddled with the mathematics when working on a new project.  This little chart has been a big help to me when I am trying to figure how much fabric I will need for border strips.  I just measure the 4 sides of the quilt for the total, decide how wide I want to make my strips and then use the chart to help me figure out how much fabric I will need.  To download and print the chart, click here.

Anything that makes the process easier gets a big "thumbs up" from me!  Don't you agree?
