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:

This fabric was bought for my stash and I find the pattern is a good go to for incorporating into any quilt. A very useful product.

Just what I've come to expect from Pelenna Fabrics. As I had the yellow stash packs I wanted to be able to cut from a long 'fat' quarter.
Fast delivery to France and beautifully packaged.
