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:

The charcoal fabric was of the usual high quality, also the samples of Summer Breeze, and such pretty fabric, of which I intend buying. Delivered day after
ordering. I found Sarah most helpful when I ‘phoned.

Always a very efficient service from Pelenna Patchworks and the quality of the material is excellent. I will use the charcoal grey fabric for a quilt for my granddaughter which I will start at a class at FOQ.
