Fabric buying guide

Our most common question is 'What is a fat quarter?' The diagram below shows how all the various cuts of fabric are measured, but in short:

  • A fat quarter is where half a metre is cut off the fabric bolt, then cut in half again parallel to the selvedge - finished size is approximately 20" x 21-22" (50cm x 55cm) including the selvedge
  • A long quarter is simply quarter of a metre cut straight off the bolt - finished size is approximately 10" x 42-44" (25cm x 110cm) including the selvedge.
Fabric size guide:
We sell fabric in quarter metre units, orders of more than one unit are sent uncut as a single piece. Please see the chart below to see how many units to order for common length requirements:

I did not notice that this was a sample so ended up with no light cream fabric, which is necessary for the 3 baby quilts I'm making. Very annoyed at this. Perhaps the word sample could have been written across the photo of the fabric making it clearer to would be buyers? However I am delighted with the rest of my order.


Thank you for your feedback. When a fabric is out of stock the system will only allow samples of it to be added to the basket to ensure we don't charge for fabric we don't have available. This is indicated on the product page, on the category page below the add to basket button, and also in the shopping basket at the time of ordering. We will look into changing the picture per your suggestion, it may be possible.
