## Damage and number of blocks

It seems that damage does dictate the number of blocks (or strips) you can tear something up into.

The red-brown smock (1) is in very good condition.
The yellow smock (2) is in decent condition.
>tear smock test
The yellow smock would divide up into 3 strips and 1 quilting blocks.
>tear smock 2 test
The red-brown smock would divide up into 4 strips and 1 quilting blocks.
>sew smock
You neatly stitch the yellow smock up with the small silver needle.  The yellow smock looks as good as new.
>sew red-brown smock
You stitch the red-brown smock up with the small silver needle.  The red-brown smock looks as good as new.
>tear smock test
The red-brown smock would divide up into 5 strips and 2 quilting blocks.
>tear smock 2 test
The yellow smock would divide up into 5 strips and 2 quilting blocks.
>tb smock
You tear the red-brown smock into two quilting blocks.
>tb smock
You tear the yellow smock into two quilting blocks.


(I'm assuming that "tear x test" is accurate for things you can actually tear up, as far as this goes, even though it sometimes indicates that you can tear something up when you actually can't.)

Anyone else think it would be a good idea to just list the maximum blocks you can get from an item?

I concur --Groth

Um... hm. Okay, I guess that may not be the entire picture. Twice, now, I've encountered an item that didn't yield the expected number of blocks, despite being in apparently perfect condition. I started with three moon dragon shirts...
men shirt
One of the moon dragon shirts doesn't need to be mended.
mdc shirt 2
You neatly stitch one of the moon dragon shirts up with the small silver needle.  One of the moon dragon shirts looks as good as new.
men shirt 3
You neatly stitch one of the moon dragon shirts up with the small silver needle.  One of the moon dragon shirts looks as good as new.
tb shirt
You tear one of the moon dragon shirts into three quilting blocks.
You drop three golden orange cotton quilting blocks.
tb shirt
You tear the rich red moon dragon shirt into four quilting blocks.
You drop four rich red cotton quilting blocks.
tb shirt
You tear the grass yellow moon dragon shirt into four quilting blocks.
You drop four grass yellow cotton quilting blocks.
So, as far as I can tell, the golden orange one wasn't the least bit damaged (either it was one I mended up to look as good as new, or it didn't need to be mended), and yet it only gave three blocks. Either there's some randomness and/or a skillcheck to determine how many blocks you can get from a particular item with a particular condition, or damage and mending doesn't work the way it seems to, and something can be very slightly damaged without being mendable.
