    Illusion quilt

    I am going to be doing the Illusion quilt soon. How much fabric should I get for the background. The tutorial says the finished size is 64x84

    If you make according to tutorial with one layer cake it says you need 1 1/2 yards of Ltd gray and 2 yards of white.

      I guess I asked the wrong question, sorry about that. What I wanted to know was how much backing fabric I would need for a quilt that size. Thanks

        5 1/8 yards if you are allowing 4 inches for quilting.

          This says 3 1/2 yds

            84 (divided by) 36 = 2.33
            so you would need that times 2 which is 4.66
            and yes, more than that for quilting so 5 or even 5 1/8th would be correct!

              Or if you have a non directional backung, you can have a horizontal seam and use 4 yds.
              64+8=72 which is 2 yds
              2x2 widths = 4yds.

                Personally, I wait until the quilt top is pieced,
                Measure the top, and figure how much backing
                fabric I need. The larger the quilt, the more
                I allow for the quilting will need.
                Generally around 4 inches for all 4 sides.
