I am trying to figure out how much yardage I need for the backing and binding for a 60x72 quilt. I'm trying to make a adult version of a cuddle quilt using 17 strips of 5x58.

This is the free online calculator I use for figuring yardage. Works great! They have a few different ones listed, but this is the one i use the most:

Pamela,

Thank you for the information.  I bookmarked it.    I have bought my backing at   connecting threads.  It's  over100"  wide and for a king size I bought 3 yards. And it's reasonable, since we're retired and on a fixed income.

Have fun with your quilt project Latasha.  As for yardage I probably would've bought 4 yds. only because I use scraps from one into another quilt.
