    Please help! How much backing fabric do I need?

    Hi everyone!! I'm still working on my first quilt sewing Jenny's "Tiny Wonky Stars" and need to order the backing before it's gone.

    Based on her measurements the quilt is 69 X 81 (I added 4" extra ea. side for the quilting so 77 X 89)

    so do I need 5 yards if I use 44"/45" wide fabric? Reg. yardage fabric

    Or do I need 2 1/2 yards if I use 108" backing fabric? Backing Fabric

    Thank You for the help!!! I'd like to get that ordered today so I can add the deal of the day too!
    Cheers! ~Merri

    You've got your measurements correct on what you need (with a little left, which is good, just in case) on both widths of fabric.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?
