quilt calculator

A common scenario for quilters is trying to figure out how many width of fabric strips to cut in order to get the number of squares that a pattern calls for.  You have to pull out the old calculator, figure out how many squares a single strip will yield from the width of fabric that you are using, and divide the number of squares you need by the number of squares a single strip will yield.  Hmmm...that can get complicated.  I've created an online tool that will tell you the number of strips you need to cut simply by answering three easy questions.  You can even print out the results, just in case you are forgetful (like me)!  Give it a try, you just might find yourself spending less time calculating and more time making quilts!  You'll find the calculator here.
