To determine how much fabric you need for a quilt, you will need to measure the dimensions of the quilt top and add 1/2 inch to each side for the seam allowance. Then, you will need to decide on the width of the fabric strips that you will be using. For example, if you want to use 2-inch wide strips, you will need to add 2 inches to the width and length of the quilt top. This will give you the total amount of fabric needed to cut the strips. To calculate the number of strips needed, you will need to divide the total length of the fabric by the width of the strips. For example, if you have a quilt top that is 40 inches wide by 60 inches long, you will need to add 2 inches to each side for the seam allowance. This will give you a total of 44 inches by 64 inches. If you are using 2-inch wide strips, you will need 22 stripstotal.
