What is a Fat Quarter?

A fat quarter is a rectangular piece of fabric that usually measures 56cm wide x 50cm long. Sometimes fat quarters are wider than this depending on the manufactured width of the fabric.

How is the fabric cut?

On the drop down menus you have the choice of a fat quarter, 25cms, 50cms, 75cms and 1 meter.  See the illistration above on how a fat quarter is cut.  If you order two fat quarters I will cut as one piece so it would be 50cms off the bolt.  If you order 3 fat quarters I will cut 75cms off the bolt ond so on.  If you require the fabric to be cut as fat quarters please let me know and I will be happy to cut as you require.
