Common Fabric Yardage Cuts for Quilting

Part of the Quilting For Dummies Cheat Sheet

If you’re quilting, you’re dealing with fabric and yardages. The following chart is a useful tool to have on hand when you’re purchasing fabric yardage. You can also refer to this chart when pulling fabrics from your own stash to make sure you have enough of your fabric of choice. (Measurements are based on the standard 44-or 45-inch fabric width.)

Be sure to measure any large templates you plan to use so you don’t purchase a piece of fabric that’s too narrow for the task.
