Turn Yardage Into Pre-Cuts and More!
Have you ever wondered what you can cut from a yard of fabric? Quilt patterns are often designed around pre-cuts but what if you have yardage you’d like to use instead? Or maybe you’d just like to save some money and make your own pre-cuts.
Staci from Crafty Staci has created a wonderful chart that shows exactly what can be cut from a yard of fabric. Use it to make your own fat quarters, 2 1/2″ jelly roll strips, and more.
Learn more about the chart here and download a version to print and keep on hand at the following link.
But what if you want to cut a lot of squares? The ladies at Alanda Craft have created a handy chart showing how many squares of just about any size can be cut from a yard of fabric.
Above is an abbreviated version. Quantities are given for squares up to 20.5 inches for fabric widths from 39″ to 42″ (after cutting off the selvages).
Learn more here and use the link below for a printable version.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
