    I would really like to know what is equivalent yardage for a layer cake? I can’t seem to find the answer to this question. I love my layer cakes and other precuts but when I am trying to find out totals it is very difficult!

      Hi Maria! A layer cake is 10″ square and has 36-42 prints (typically). You can’t get that variety of prints in yardage but mathematically a layer cake is equivalent to about 2 3/4 yards of fabric.

      First, calculate your width, i.e. how many 10″ strips you’d need to cut from a bolt to get (42) 10″ squares:
      10″ x 42 squares = 420″ of fabric strips

      Assume you can get 42″ of width from you fabric for cutting after squaring (this may not always be true so we will round up the final number):
      420″ / 42″ per WOF = (10) 10″ x WOF strips

      Second, calculate your height – this gives the yardage:
      10 x 10″ WOF strips = 100 inches high
      100″ / 36″ per yard = 2.78 yards

      Round up to 3 yards, even 3.25 to be safe.
