Craft Tip: What is a Fat Quarter?

A Fat Quarter is the same amount of fabric as a traditional 1/4 yard cut of fabric except instead of measuring 9" X 44", a fat quarter measures 18" X 22". Many quilters find the wider width offers more versatility for cutting templates or strips than the traditional 9" width of 1/4 yard.

Traditional 1/4 yard (9" X 44")



A fat quarter is produced by first cutting 1/2 yard of fabric from the bolt, then cutting this in half crosswise (usually along the fold), yielding 2 fat quarters.

Fat Quarter (18" X 22")


Uses for fat quarters is limited only to the imagination of the crafter. Besides quilts, stash builders utilize their fat quarters in aprons, place mats, napkins, tea cozies, pin cushions, tote bags, doll clothes, pot holders, and so on and so forth. Post a comment and share you fun ideas for fat quarter stash busting.
