We’ve created a few calculators to help you work out the number of pre-cuts or meterage required for your quilting projects.
One of the trickiest things to calculate!
BATTING & BACKING FABRIC
Both batting and backing fabric require an overhang of approx 15cm on each side of your quilt top.
- Calculate how many fabric widths you will require to fit across the width of your quilt.
- Then multiply the number of widths by the length of your quilt to calculate how many metres will be required.
To help with your calculations, please note:
+ Quiltlite Batting is 150cm wide
+ Liberty Tana Lawn is 133cm wide
CALCULATING BIAS BINDING
The quantity of bias binding required will be equal to the perimeter of your quilt (plus a little extra)
ie. Bias Binding (metres) = width of quilt(cm) x length of quilt(cm) x 2/100 + 10cm extra
Keep in mind that our bias binding comes in 3m packs – so round up to the closest.
