Sometimes you just want to make something with a little bit of fabric like a fat quarter. It’s not to have everything fit in a small space, and lots of these make the best gifts!
I’ve put together a big list of fat quarter projects made with cotton fabric. When buying a fat quarter you are almost always are buying a piece of quilting cotton.
Some are labeled as specifically working with fat quarters and some are scrap fabric projects. Some of these need a couple of fat quarters, but almost all need just one.
The great thing about sewing is you get to choose what works for you! Do you love sewing? Check out some of these projects!

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.
