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:

Beautiful colour, lovely fabric, well cut

I love the Makower Spraytime range and I have quite a bit of it, in different shades, in my stash. For me, it's the perfect blender. It's not a "solid" colour - there is some tonal shading and this is a lovely shade of blue. It was well cut, beautifully packaged and arrived safely. Thank you.

I love this fabric, beautiful when you want something a little more than a plain fabric but not patterned 👍🏻
