How to calculate the quilt pieces that I can get from fabric?

You can use this formula to calculate the pieces.

  1. Pieces (Original orientation) = floor(Fabric Width / Piece Width) * floor(Fabric Height / Piece Height)
  2. Pieces (Reversed orientation) = floor(Fabric Width / Piece Height) * floor(Fabric Height / Piece Width)

Here, “floor” means rounding down to the nearest whole number.

You can use the above calculator to save your time.
