Quilt Charts and Formulas

Everyone likes shortcuts and ways to learn ways to make their life easier.  I have been asked if I know of any charts or tables that can be used. I dug around and found quite a few.  I hope at least one will be helpful to you. 

I am sure you all know and seen this one.  Yet when someone wants me to quilt a quilt for them or make a quilt for them, their first comment is "about bed size".  So I show them this chart:  

Then it's, how much backing or batting do I need?
This one comes in handy.  When they have doubts as to your figures, I show them this one.

Did you ever want to know how many inches in 3/8 yard when at a store and your and goes blank?

Or how many strips can you cut out of a yard of fabric?

Perhaps your making a Quilt with fat quarters.  Here is a good chart to have for a quick reference.

Or this one.

And here is a quick chart to learn how to make HST's:

But what if you only need 4?

Or you may prefer a simper chart for HST's

Or a chart with lots of different sizes:

Another I have found:

Then there is this one:

I hope I didn't confuse you and have been of some help.

One more chart to show you:

I’m impressed, I need to say. Really not often do I encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the difficulty is something that not enough persons are talking intelligently about. I'm very pleased that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for something relating to this. online casinos

I have a question for the Quilts Quazy Queen. How much yardage is needed to make a twin size 2 color quilt? I need the amount for both colors. i want to make a Jaco's Ladder quilt and want to make sure I have enough fabric so I don't run out and am not able to get more of the 2 fabrics.
