*The mathematical formula for this is: Multiply the number of inches around the quilt (the perimiter) by the width of your bias binding strips. Take the square root of that answer and add two inches. This is the size of the square you need to cut for bias binding.

Glossary

Bias
The direction of a piece of woven fabric, usually referred to simply as "the bias" or "the cross-grain", is at 45 degrees to its warp and weft threads. Every piece of woven fabric has two biases, perpendicular to each other. Non-woven fabrics such as felt or interfacing do not have a bias.

Same As: Cross-grain
Binding
Binding is used as both a noun and a verb. As a noun it is the fabric that's used to cover the raw edges of the quilt sandwich after it's quilted. This edging fabric is referred to as the Binding (noun). As a verb it is the process of putting on this fabric, and it referred to as Binding a Quilt.
Grain
The lengthwise and crosswise threads (warp and weft directions) of a woven fabric.
