Fat quarter metre


What is a fat quarter metre?

One quarter of a square metre of fabric, cut to about 56cm x 50cm (for a 112cm wide fabric).

A fat quarter gives a larger piece of fabric than would be possible from a regular quarter-metre, including strips that are twice as long on the fabric's (less stretchy) lengthwise grain.

If you order multiples of fat quarters they are always cut as one continuous piece, so if you want one metre, just order 4.

 

For example on a 112cm wide fabric:

 

The table below gives you and idea of how many fat quarters you may need to order, again using the example of a 112cm wide fabric.
