A regular quarter yard of fabric is 9" x 44" (or whatever the width of the fabric). A fat quarter is created when a half yard is cut (18") and then cut in half the other way. So a fat quarter is usually 18" x 22". Quilters generally like them more than a regular quarter yard cut because they're a little more versatile then a long strip.

I only found that out by asking on this site - there is such a wealth of knowledge you can tap into here it's scarey. Never feel that there is any question too small to ask.
