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.

  1. Calculate how may fabric widths you will require to fit across the width of your quilt.
  2. 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.
