How do I calculate yards for a piece of tissue from a blanket?

I have a quilt pattern I want to do. I included the amount of each piece need and the dimensions of the finished piece, but how I can translate this into parking? As I 20-3 inch squares, rectangles, 2-3x5.5-inch and 2 inch rectangles 3x10.5, 3x15.5 and 2-inch rectangles of one color. How I can know how many yards to buy to get all my parts, not guess. Most fabrics sold in 45 cm wide "leaves" with the customer to buy in the courts. Thank you honey, but I wanted a formula that I can think of the rest of my web needs.

We must determine how many blocks you can get a cut bandwidth fabric (OMF). Below is how many tapes to cut for all blocks you need. (For example, if you can get 10 blocks of a band of WOF, and you need 20, then you have 2 strips WOF). Then multiply the number by WOF strips the number of inches of the width of the band cutting obtain the total number of inches of fabric needed for each block (three strips cut 3 'of each equivalent to 9 " fabric). To do this, with each block size you need, and when it is, add the total to know how many inches of fabric you need. You should also consider best way to cut blocks - for example, if you need several 3 x 15.5, must decide whether to cut the lengths of 15.5 inches, then subcutaneous 3-inch pieces or cuts 3 "band, then in 15.5 Subcutan" pieces. That probably depends on the amount you need. You want to have at least lost tissue as possible. If you have material left over from a band, you may be able to use it to cut smaller blocks. You have a better chance that if you cut the bands first time. I hope this is not too complicated. I am a big quilt-math, but do not know if I have well explained. Just remember in case of error and "square" end of cut. There may be some loss of tissue. So you do not use the edge. It is a tightly woven and folds may not be as nice as the rest of the web. Good luck!

Quilts of pressure in the appropriate

By pressing the seams of your quilt is one of the most important tasks for the work accomplished. Good news means that coverage will ensure a good flow from room to room, both visually and by touch. Most quilters they will have leverage over the most appropriate, but before you find that style is important to understand what it is not urgent.

The urgency is not

By pressing the seams of your quilt is not the same as iron. If you use an iron and ironing board, it is absolutely important to remember that you are not board (ie operation of the device attached with a light pressure) but only to convince the seam side down to seal and make it less visible.

When you press the seam is often seen as a means of strengthening sewing, but it is not really the case. No force is added to the seam vein smashed up, pressing the seam means that if a point is canceled cotton batting, the quilt will not rise through the vein. This can be said to strengthen the integrity of a quilt little but not in the same vein stronger.

It is urgent

By pressing the use of self-weight of iron to create seam allowances otherwise might lead to lost tissues. In a work like a quilt, which requires numerous pieces together, lost millimeters on each piece can make a big difference in the final product. By pressing quilt blocks, as eliminating this problem are made.

Pressing it will also create a loft that will be very useful in fixing the parts. Finally, pressing the quilt help provide a consistent look and feel. The fabric should not cover stitching on a quilt tight.

The types of press

There are two types of press releases and open hand pressing. Side emergency simply by pressing the side seams, and generally defended by most instructors of the quilt.

Open pressing involves the application plate on the back and front of the blocks. It may take twice as long as the press side, but those who use it say it helps a lot in the development the quilt. This style is most appropriate when the panels sewn by machine, which are stronger than those made by hand; point is less likely to melt, and therefore hide a hole is not necessary.

Technology News

When pressing quilt blocks in all, the seams must be pushed to the dark spots. If your quilt involves a more complex model, with spirals forms and compass, then try to push in a watch model, at least ensure that their machines are uniform in direction. This will reduce the mass in the middle of distribution when all joints are oppressed.

Pressing seams is probably one of the most boring of the quilt, but it is important to ensure that you do so accurately. It will help maintain the integrity of the quilt and can also be much easier to play.

A last indication, Do not use steam! The heat of iron is sufficient for pressing. Moisture can cause colors to run and make blocks more susceptible to deformation.
