What is a fat quarter?


Answer by  seagambrell (91)

It is a larger piece of material created by dividing a standard material yard of 36x44 into four squares measuring 18x22 instead of the normal practice of dividing yards into quarter lengths of 9x44. It is used mainly by crafters and quilters allowing them to cut larger pieces and strip work.

A fat quarter is a term related to fabric. It is usually about 18 inches by 22 inches, rather than 9 by 44. It is a "fatter" piece rather than long. This term is used with quilting and other clothing terms.
