What are the differences in fabric sizes?

The diagram above shows various cut size of fabrics. 

A fat quater is a quarter metre of fabric, cut to about 50cm x width of fabric.  This is represented by the quarter marking 'A'. Most of our fabric will be supplied as fat quarters if quantity of 1 is ordered.  Multiple quantities will be cut as a continuous piece.  The following information will give you an idea of how much to order.

Quantity '1' = 1/2 width of fabric x 50cm (one fat quarter), represented by quarter marking 'A'

Quantity '2' = full width of fabric x 50cm, represented by 'A' + 'B'

Quantity '3' = full width of fabric x 75cm, represented by 'A' + 'B' + 'C'

Quantity '4' = full width of fabric x 1 metre, represented by 'A' + 'B' + 'C' + 'D'

If you order an odd number of fat quarters, the last will be cut as a long quarter (25cm x width of fabric). 

 

How wide is the fabric?

Most of the fabric is 44in wide/112cm, but there is also some fabric that measures wider. The width of the fabric is listed on the product page.
