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 love the Makower "Spraytime" range. As well as being a gorgeous fabric, for me it's also a wonderful blender and this shade goes with just about anything. It is a little more "yellow" than the photo shows but as I already had some and was just "topping up" my stash, I knew that.

Paler than I expected but still love it. I will be purchasing this range again.

This plain is perfect for sashing in my current quilt project. I know I can rely on the fabric quality and accurate lengths from you, and your website colours are incredibly accurate too! No hesitation in ordering from you.

I purchased the Spraytime fabric to use as a background for my "lockdown" stars quilt and the quality and colour are perfect. Delivery was prompt and packaged really well. I received a free charm pack which was a nice treat to open and see what fabrics were inside and I plan to use these to make a table runner. Thank you and I will definitely purchase from Pelenna Patchworks again.

I am blown away by the quality of the service received. I placed my order on Thursday, it was shipped on Friday and it arrived on Saturday. Thank you for such a speedy service and I LOVE the Spraytime fabric range. It's a fantastic blender fabric and goes well with most fabrics, if not all.
