This calculator calculates the amount of fabric required for creating borders for your quilt given
the quilt's dimensions (width and length) and the width of the borders.
You may also specify the width of the fabric.
Up to 5 borders may be specified with the first border (Border1) being the innermost border.
The amount of yardage for each border is rounded up to the nearest 1/8 of a yard.
The calculator will also show
for each border how many strips of fabric you need to cut
and the overall dimensions of the quilt
with all the borders added.
