Fabric Cuts Part 1

Many people new to the sewing world may be confused about the difference between a fat quarter and a quarter of a yard. The difference is that a fat quarter is one of four equal pieces cut from an entire yard that measures 18” x 22” as seen below.

A ¼ of a yard measures 9” x 44” which is ¼ of the length (36”) x the full width (44”) as shown in the next picture. Join us next Wednesday for Fabric Cuts Part 2.
