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 is lovely soft, excellent quality material. I will be using it as the background in a quilt and backing, so needed quite a bit. This is so reasonably priced.
The white is bright and pure but with a softness about it rather than glaring synthetic whiteness.
I am sure it will look beautiful when finished. Well hopefully!
