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 is excellent quality, but what makes Pelenna so much better than others is the fact that the fabic arrives well pressed and packaged, really quickly. I have always recommended Pelenna to friends.

The quality of the material from this seller is very good and the colours are fantastic. This colour is to die for, a wonderful rich brown that I have found surprisingly difficult to find elsewhere.
