    3yds

    How many 10x10" squares can I get from 3 yards of material. Forgive me for asking but I'm blond.

    Janluna,
    I am thinking you would get 12 from each yard, which would be 36 for 3 yards.
    I could very well be wrong though! LOL
    but a yard is 36" long=3-10 in blocks and 44" wide=4-10" blocks which would be 12 blocks per yard and you would have a bit left over.

      3 yards is 108" so you should be able to get ten 10" strips out of it.

      If your fabric is a standard width you should get four squares out of each strip which gives you 40 squares

                  Do you know what I do? I have always struggled doing math in my head. So, for every quilt I do, I get graph paper, count out a 40 x 36 rectangle (as a yard of fabric) and see how many of whatever I need that I can get out of it. Then, I know how much to buy.

                  I actually draw up all of them, color coded, then I have my cutting chart when I get my fabric home.

                  I can't survive without graph paper I don't think

                    Question from a newbee. When do you use spray starch and why? I think it keeps the fabric from streching right? But when do you use it?

                      It's better to use Mary Ellens best press. Starch has sugar in it and attracts silverfish bugs.
                      If you are washing your fabric first press it with the best press. If not, it already has sizing and a bug retardant in it. Don't pre wash charms, and pre cut fabrics, like charms,jelly rolls, etc.
