    Default Fun & Done/Batting Buddy ruler

    I just recently became aware of the above quilting method and am very excited about this idea. I've not come upon any kind of calculations for any kind of yardage however. I think I'd like the QAUG in strips, versus the Log Cabin. Other than solid blocks, calculating the yardage necessary for a king-size spread is rather daunting, not to mention an investment! What say the amazing quilters in MSQC Land?

    I have seen this finished, and have looked at the products, but did not understand how it was done.

    My brain is too muddled to help calculate yardage, but here's a video of the technique for those who (like me) may not have heard of it before:

    I bought the fun and done rulers and patterns a long time ago, but have never done anything with them.

    Can't bear to listen to that lady do her tutorials, so I don't know what this is about.

    Okay, here's what I'm seeing: the backing for each block needs to be 1.5 inches larger on all four sides of each block. So if each quilt block is, say, 10" x 10", then the backing for each block needs to be 13" x 13". If you want a finished quilt that's 50" x 60", you'll need 30 blocks (because each finished block is 10" x 10"). The backing for each block is 13" x 13", so you can get 3 backing squares across a 42" WOF. So then you would need to cut 10 rows of 3 backing blocks in order to get 30 blocks. That's 130 inches, divided by 36" = 3 yards plus 22 inches or 3 and 3/4 yards (I added in a couple extra inches because I'm not very good at cutting ).
    Does that make sense?

    I made a quilt from one of the patterns Fun and Done had. It's an easy way on paper, but I couldn't square up the centers without risking cutting the backing, burned fingers a couple of times trying to fold over the binding on the front. Said to heck with it, and just stitched the backing together to get the squares flush and lined up, then added separate sashing. I gave my friend the rulers.
