I was just working on something this week to pin up next to my sewing machine as a handy reference sheet, when I actually came across something that was already made and I didn’t need to work on it at all.
I almost feel like it’s cheating. Like buying something at the store instead of sewing it!
But let’s face it, they have a design team, I have a very old version of Photoshop that I don’t know how to use very well. I think they win.
This handy reference includes:
- Precuts – sizes and descriptions
- Fabric terminology
- Standard US mattress sizes
- Standard quilt sizes (I should have paid heed to this when I made my first ever quilt)
- Recommended batting sizes
So if you are thinking of making a quilt or bed spread of some sort, crib sheets, a mattress cover – these will all come in useful.
Want to know what a jelly roll and a charm pack is, and how many pieces or yards of fabric each might typically contain? This handy reference sheet is for you!
