A fat quarter is half a metre by half the width of the fabric. It equals to a quarter metre.

We believe that sewists should have the opportunity to purchase small amounts of fabric. Fat quarters allow you to purchase more designs, without having to purchase a lot of quantity. Chances are sometimes you only need a small amount to complete a project and fat quarters are an ideal size.

If you'd like half a metre from any of our bolts, you can purchase 2 x fat quarters to get half a metre. This will be cut as one continuous length.

If you purchase any odd number of fat quarters, the last fat quarter will be cut as a long quarter. That is 25cm cut across the full width of the fabric.

If you purchase 4 x fat quarters, it will be cut as a continuous length of one metre (x total width of fabric).

We are based in Nottingham, UK.
