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.

The product was spot on. It's great that a sample service is offered to allow for colours to be tested at home rather than guessed at from the screen, sensible sizes piece and very speedy delivery.

This will be the main colour of my quilt. It's a much warmer tone than just using a plain white. Love it and will be back again to buy some more for another project.
