Ok~ :monkey:
I have several patterns that use where I live there is only 1 place to get them and the ones that they haven't aren't really anything I like.
How can I use regular fabric to make my projects??
What is the size of a FQ? Is the fabric used for FQ any different than the regular stuff you can buy??
help please~

Hi mgf,
The fabric is really no different and you can just use what you have.
A fat quarter is a quarter yard of fabric cut with the dimensions of 18" x 22" rather than 9" x 44". Basically, a half yard of fabric cut in half to produce a more square piece of fabric.
