What is a Fat Quarter?
One of the most asked questions is 'What is a fat quarter?' Its simply a metre of fabric cut into 4 giving 4 smaller pieces of fabric each measuring 56cm x 50cm. They are used by quilters a lot as it gives them the opportunity to buy lots of different smaller pieces of fabric for their quilts. They are also great for smaller projects. For dressmakers who tend to buy by the metre you just need to add 4 units of fabric to your cart to get a metre of fabric. We always send fabric as a continuous piece if more than one unit is ordered. Please see below for more info.

2 units = Half Metre = 112cm x 50cm
3 units = 112cm x 75cm
4 units = 1 Metre = 112cm x 100cm
5 units = 112cm x 125cm
6 units = 1.5 Metres = 112cm x 150cm
7 units = 112cm x 175cm
8 units = 2 Metres = 112cm x 200cm
