Quilt Yardage Reference Guide

Quilt Yardage Reference Guide

Have you ever wondered how much fabric you should buy when you are shopping at an online fabric shop and you have to order in 1/4 yard increments? 

When I am writing patterns, I try to give you a little extra fabric, but I don't go up to the next quarter yard in case you are using fabric you already have or, you are able to go into a store and buy the exact amounts.

Below I have made a quick reference chart so you don't have to guess how much fabric to buy!

This reference chart is based on 42" Width of Fabric (WOF).
