These quilts are supposed to be somewhat spontaneous and a surprise, but I don’t want to completely surprised by how large or small the final convergence turns out to be.

These lists show the finished width of a convergence based on a starting strip size & the size of the increase for each strip. The “normal” one on the left starts with 1 inch and increases by a half inch. The “miniature” one starts with 3-quarter inch and increases only by a quarter inch.

They are cumulative… cut as many strips as desired starting from the top of the list.

  • Fabric Size:  required width of fabric needed to make a convergence using all the rows from top to this one.
  • Strip Cut Size: size of each successive cut strip
  • Converged width: the final finished size of a convergence of 2 fabrics using all the rows from 1 to this one

38.5 6 66 22.75 3.25 33

Don’t forget to leave a final piece of fabric AT LEAST as width as your last cut strip.
