I’ve been teaching quilting for years, but any time a student asks me to start figuring out dimensions, I panic. If the math part of quilting frustrates you, check out Dena Crain’s online class Math for Quilters beginning July 3rd at Quilt University. Go here to find out more. Scroll down, it’s under Other category towards the bottom of the page.
Draft blocks, figure template sizes and yardage, calculate layouts and apply math to calculate the real cost of your quilts.
As a hobbyist, I’m not concerned with what I spend on the quilts I give away as gifts however, if you are in the business of quilting math skills such as these are essential.
