They ask for more fabric than is needed. They ask you to double it if there is a repeating pattern, so that's about 17 yards in that case.
With a non-repeating pattern you'll have enough for the U-shape and the filler boards with 8.8 yards. In fact, you might be surprised how much is left over in the remnant roll they leave in the trailer.
In our case, we have the U-shaped dinette and a repeating pattern. We also asked them to upholster all sides of the cushions, which uses more material. We sent 17 yards and wound up with about 7 yards left over.
The wife is planning to make several sizes of throw pillows with some of the leftover fabric.
