A metric Fat Quarter usually measures 50cms x 56cms (20” x 22”). Some shops use the Fat Quarter yard. This means that the fabric measures 46cms x 56cms (18” x 22”).

A Long Fat Quarter is cut across the whole width of fabric and is usually 10” x width of cloth.

You will always receive a fat quarter unless you request a long fat quarter.

If you order 2 x fat quarters you will receive half a metre.

If you order 3 x fat quarters you will receive ¾ of a metre in one piece.

If you order 4 x fat quarters you will receive a metre in one piece. Unless specified under categories.

A Charm Pack is a pre-cut bundle of fabrics where the fabrics are all cut to 5" square.

Moda charm packs contain 42 squares in a range of fabrics. Each square is usually different, but you may receive repeats depending on the range.

A rotary cutter is a tool used in patchwork & quilting, sewing and dressmaking to quickly and accurately cut multiple layers of fabric. It is more accurate than a pair of scissors since one continuous cut is made rather than a series of cuts with a pair of scissors.

In 1979 Mr. Yoshio Okada, the founder of OLFA, invented the rotary cutter. This cleverly designed cutter literally reshaped quilting and crafting.

The rotary cutter consists of a round blade that fits through a spindle or shaft on a longer handle. You hold the handle in your hand and push the round rotary blade along. The blade rotates as it travels and cuts the fabric as you push it. The blades are very sharp and should be made of high quality steel. There are many different designs, therefore you need to try them out, to find the one you like best.

Two other pieces of equipment are needed. A self healing rotary cutting mat and a ruler usually made of acrylic.
