What is a Fat Quarter Draw?
|• Bring a pre-washed Fat Quarter to the guild meeting|
|• for every Fat Quarter you put in the draw you will have your name entered into the draw e.g. 2 Fat Quarters = 2 entries|
|• at a specified time during the meeting we will draw a name for the winner of all the Fat Quarters|
|• remember don't put in the Fat Quarter draw what you yourself would not want to receive!|
|• a theme for the Fat Quarter draw could be decided on at the current meeting|
What is a Fat Quarter?
|• rectangular piece of fabric that measures a minimum of 18"x 21"|
|• the"fat quarter" cut is based on fabric sold by the yard which is a half yard cut length from the bolt then cut on the fold which gives you 2 fat quarters|
|• since Canada sells in meters most quilt stores will cut a .5m length from the bolt then cut on the fold|
|• this would make a "fat quarter" a minimum of 19 ½" x 21"|
|• this now makes a large fat quarter of fabric versus the standard skinny quarter cut of fabric which is a minimum cut of 9 "across the width|
|• the "fat" quarter cut offers more cutting options than the "skinny" quarter cut|
|a Fat Quarter will give you a minimum of:|
|• 90 - 2"squares|
|• 42 - 3" squares|
|• 20 - 4" squares|
|• 12 - 5" squares|
|• 9 - 6" squares|
