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.

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!?!
