Fat Quarters

A Fat Quarter is half a metre of fabric cut in half up the middle. Fabric is cut in this way to provide a piece of fabric which is a very usable size.

A fat quarter is the right size for a cushion top for example, and they are great for doing patchwork as it is easy to buy a range of colours and designs.

When ordering fabric will be cut in one continuous piece.
