It is figured out individually by starting with the size of the finished blocks. Then you can find the dimensions of standard quilts. From there you come up with a layout and figure out how many squares you need.

If the squares don't quite come out to the size you need then you work on how many borders would make it the size you need? Borders can be about any width you'd like.

So there isn't any one way to do it.

Does this help? I keep it on my desktop, so when it doubt, it gives me sizes to aim for.

I just realized when trying to answer your question that I NEVER figure out yardage! I just buy more than I'll need, and a few options in case I change my mind.

I think Sharon is right though, it all depends on what the pattern is, then take it block by block with your smaller measurements.
