Today’s post in our series on precuts is all about fat quarters! Fat quarter precuts get their name because they’re pretty wide – they’re typically about 18″ by 22″ or so. These precuts are great because they give you a lot of fabric to work with and, since they’re longer on one side, they allow for more versatility in what you use them for. You can cut them in half to get a fat eighth or use them as one piece for a quicker quilt!
