Friday Favorites: Gadgets/Calculators

IMG_7639_ffWelcome to another edition of my Friday Favorites!


I’m definitely a gadget kinda gal.  Whether it’s spreadsheets, rulers, clips, etc. I’m all for it.  My latest and greatest find is the website Quilter’s Paradise.  I stumbled across the site when I searched the internet for assistance in calculating yardage needed to construct Bias Binding.  What came up was this amazing on-line calculator.  It allows you to make the following calculations:

Yardage Needed For

  • Backing and batting
  • Binding
  • Borders

Other Calculations

  • Die Cut Letter Count
  • Fabric Measurement Conversion
  • Piece Count
  • Pieces to Yardage Area
  • Set in and Corner Triangle
  • Square in a Square

I was truly amazed at the variety of calculators, the usefulness of each one and the idea that such a thing even existed.  You simply must pay a visit to the website and try it out.  I’m certain you will find more than one use that suits your needs.  Let me know what you think.

Thanks for taking the time to visit.  I look forward to our next encounter.
