We have been sorting out some of the new Tilda fabrics into fat quarter and fat eighth packs. For those who don't know, a fat quarter is a 50cm piece of fabric cut from the bolt that has then been cut in half so that it measures 50cm x 55cm (a usual width of fabric is 110cm). A fat eighth piece of fabric is 25cm x 55cm. The reason for this, well, sometimes it is so that you can have all of a bigger design of the fabric without having the entire width, sometimes it is so that you can purchase many smaller pieces of fabric and have a diverse range per meterage paid. So if you bought four fat quarters of fabric, you would be paying the same price as a full metre of fabric. Likewise, if your bought eight fat eighths of fabric, you would be paying the same price as a full metre of fabric. Tilda is so pretty, it lends itself to paper piecing and quilt making alike. We have added fat quarter packs and fat eighth packs to our online store. There are 24 fabrics included in the packs and what you choose to do with them, well that's entirely up to you!
