what is a fat quarter?

A fat quarter is a quarter of fabric, but instead of cutting in straight across the yardage which would be 9 inches tall by 42 inches wide, it’s cut from one side creating a rectangle that is 18 inches tall and 21 inches wide.

It gives you a little more freedom in what you can create since it’s taller than a regular quarter of fabric.

what is quilting cotton fabric?

Quilting cotton is fabric made from 100% cotton. It is a plain weave which is the simplest way to weave fabric. Quilting cotton is a medium weight fabric depending on the manufacturer, and it has a lot body.

It tends to hold it’s shape even after being washed. Some fabric companies have started to make lighter weight quilting cottons so that they can be made into clothing. 

Quilting cotton is used to make quilts and other home sewing projects and can come in almost any print imaginable. The fabric is printed after being woven which means there’s a chance that the print can be off-grain.
