I am still on my kick to get the most out of a fat quarter that I can. There are a ton of ways to cut a fat quarter. Every time I start a new project, I always look up different ways to cut them. I found a very useful chart on a very helpful blog called Bright Linen. Ashton Bynum has a ton of cutting guides that I go to frequently. Since the standard size of a fat quarter is 18″x22″, you should be able to get the same cuts from each fat quarter. That works most of the time.
I love buying fabric. It’s a bit of an obsession of mine. I’m always looking for good sales online. This past Black Friday/Cyber Monday, I went a bit crazy, but we aren’t going to talk about that right now. Shopping online, I tend to lean to getting precuts. My precut of choice – fat quarters.
In case you don’t know what a fat quarter is, it’s a half yard cut in half widthwise, or 18″ x 22″ (or somewhere in that neighborhood). It is my mission in life to use each fat quarter as efficiently as I can. (Some people may try to save the world. I have more modest dreams.)
