How to calculate size of backing to use for quilt

QUILT TOP SIZE - 40" TO 60" WIDE:

When piecing yardage together, seams should be horizontal. See picture below

When buying yardage, use the following formula:

2 (you're adding two lengths of fabric together) x width of top + 12" and divide
by 36"(1 yard) = amount of yards to purchase.

FOR A QUILT TOP 61" TO 80" WIDE:

SEAMS SHOULD BE VERTICAL , See Picture Below.

Formula to use:

2 x length of quilt top + 12" divided by 36" = Amount of yardage to purchase.

Same formula as above, but now you place the pieces lengthwise.
