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.
