Fat Quarters

I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for fat quarter bundles (FQBs). You can find FQBs in just about any craft store. I love the fact that someone has already coordinated and cut the fabric and tied it up with a pretty little bow!

A fat quarter is the result of cutting a yard of fabric into four pieces. A fat quarter (usually) measures 18" X 22". In order to get a fat quarter, you would cut a yard of fabric (which usually measures 9" X 44") across the selvage and the crosswise grain.
There you have it, my friends. A fat quarter.

These pretty bundles make quick sew projects so easy!
It's just the deciding what project to use them on that's the hard part.
