To make certain you have enough fabric to bind your quilt, use the following calculation:
(quilt length + quilt width) x 2 = quilt diameter
(quilt diameter / bias fabric width) x bias seam allowance width = inches of fabric needed
Keep a fudge factor in mind to account for shrinkages and any mishaps and buy just a bit more than calculated with the above equation. Some quilters recommend adding 15″ to the quilt diameter to allow for this. If you are using a bias cut binding, add a generous extra amount onto your total to make sure there are enough pieces of the proper length.
