Size of Fat Quarter?

by Jeanette
(Merritt, B.C. Canada)

How big is a fat quarter?


A fat quarter usually measures 18" x 22". If you took a half yard of fabric (18" x 44") and cut it in half again (lengthwise), you'd have a two fat quarters that measure (18" x 22"). It's half of a half yard of material.

Please see my fat quarter page for an illustration.
