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:

I don't buy fabric on line very often because I like to see and feel it first. I 'chanced' buying a few years ago and tried several websites. I found your site to be the most user friendly out of several I tried. Also efficient with delivery and good packaging. I'm lucky to have 2 shops near me to buy and a huge one not too far away. I will never use another online shop other than yours if I need to. Great.

Great packaging and service. Thank you.

This fabric has the tiniest of white dots on white background, giving just enough to add interest to a filler in your quilting. Fabric quality is excellent, and delivery extremely quick and well packaged.
