Binding Charts

for both Bias Cut and Straight Cut Binding

Bias Cut Binding*
""
Cut width of binding Fabric needed to make binding lengths of: 
  0 to 200" 200 - 350" 350 - 500"
1" 1/2 yd 5/8 yd 3/4 yd
1 1/2" 5/8 3/4 7/8
2" 5/8 7/8 1
2 1/2" 3/4 7/8 1 1/8
3" 3/4 1 1 1/8
3 1/2" 7/8 1 1 1/4
4" 7/8 1 1/8 1 3/8
4 1/2" 7/8 1 1/8 1 3/8
5" 1 1 1/4 1 1/2

 

*The mathematical formula for this is: Multiply the number of inches around the quilt (the perimeter) by the width of your bias binding strips. Take the square root of that answer and add two inches.  This is the size of the square you need to cut for bias binding. 

Here is a link for creating and applying continuous bias binding.  There is a yardage chart for this method here.
