If you are inspired to make a quilt from a Block a Day calendar or the 100 Blocks magazine, or want to make more or less blocks from a pattern you own, usually the measurements for the block pieces are in cut sizes and QuiltSandwich works in finished sizes- Yikes!
Rest assured this is not a problem. QuiltSandwich can still do all of the math for you!
* Use Supercalc
* Choose the shape you need
* Enter in the cut sizes of the piece
* The number you need,
* And drum roll please......set the seam allowance to zero!!!!!!!!
Presto! ---- A yardage calculation with a cutting diagram!
Use this anytime when the only thing you have to work with is cut sizes.
Need to know the decimal equivalent of 7/8?
Just go to Notions and Tools/ Conversions to find it out. Hint : its .875 So if you pattern calls for a half square triangle to be cut from a 2 7/8" square, just type in 2.875 for the square shape and you will be off and running!
Here's to joyful quilting!
