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.

I ordered the sample for an autumn themed quilt and it is perfect, I've already ordered more. The service is prompt and the quality of the material is very good - sturdy but not too thick to sew :o)

As with all the solids fabric the quality is fantastic at a really good price (even more so if you buy at the 1 metre £5 cost). Definitely 5* for the fabric and for the service - Thank you!
