    Does anyone know what the yardage is for the layer Cake stack or the Jellyroll or the charm pack? Thanks

    This won't answer your question exactly, but check out this site for the #of packs and size of quilts made:

      Re: Yardage

      If I've calculated correctly it's not quite 3 yards.

      4 blocks across the width of the fabric (4 blocks x 10" = 40")
      10 blocks down the length of the fabric (10 blocks x 10" = 100")
      Divide 100" by 36" (length of one yard) = 2.78 ids

      (There are usually 42 squares in a layer cake. My calculations are based on 40 squares)

        Interesting question, I've wondered that myself.

          this works - but it has to be continuous yardage to cut the 10" blocks from
