Backing fabric yardage – how big is your quilt and what amount of fabric do you need for the quilt back?
I was just in the store the other day in fact purchasing the backing fabric yardage for a quilt top– a big one!
Can you just imagine the happenings? oh I bet, you’ve been there before.
A few of us were all huddled around the cut table with a few calculators in hand and working out the scenario.
What if the seam was here. What if it went the long way.
How wide is that bolt of fabric? How much do I really need?
Are you sure that’s enough?!
Had I only had the free printable on hand. What was I thinking trying to purchase that much fabric for the one purpose of a backing and not bringing it to help remind me what I needed!?!
Backing fabric yardage is not easy!
