A Quilting Calculator

I use a Smartphone and wanted to share a very helpful ap I found to determine fabric yardage. I often  create my own quilts without even a pattern and am often left to geuss how much backing or binding I will need to finish it. Robert Kaufman Fabrics and Quilters Paradise teamed up to create: QuiltingCalc. 
There are a variety of subject areas to choose from as you can see below:

I have only used this to determine my backing, batting and binding but can 
tell you it has taken the guess work on determining how much fabric I need to finish a quilt.
You simple input your width of fabric being used, then unput width and length of your quilt top: 

Finally, press "calculate" and you'll be told how much yardage you will need.
I love it and just wanted to share a helpful ap with anyone of you who might have a Smartphone and might find yourself always guessing at how much backing, batting and binding you will need.
