A fat quarter is a quarter yard cut that measures approximately 18" x 22" rather than the standard 9" x 44" quarter yard.How wide is your fabric?
All fabric sold by the yard is 42-44" wide, unless stated otherwise in the description.What is a panel?
A fabric panel is a single piece of fabric, which is sold individually, and not by the yard. Panel sizes range from 23" x 44" to 44" x 44". They feature a large single motif or multiple motifs, such as place mats, pillows or quilt labels. Many panels can be turned into quilts simply by adding backing and batting. A panel can also be used as the center of a larger quilt, or can be cut apart for bags and any number of projects.How much fabric do I need to make a quilt?
The amount of fabric you will need will vary depending on what size your quilt will be and how intricate the piecing. It is best to use a pattern that tells you exactly how much of each fabric is required. As a very general guideline here is the approximate yardage needed for standard sized quilts:
A crib size 45" x 60" requires approximately 3 yds for a pieced top, 1-1/2 yds for backing, and 1/2 yd for binding.
A twin size 72" x 90" requires approximately 9 yds for a pieced top, 5-1/2 yds for backing, and 3/4 yds for binding.
A double size 81" x 96" requires approximately 10 yds for a pieced top, 6 yds for backing, and 1 yd for binding
A queen size 90" x 108" requires approximately 12 yds for a pieced top, 9 yds for backing, and 1 yd for binding.
A king size 120" x 120" requires approximately 15 yds for a pieced top, 10 yds for backing, and 1-1/4 yds for binding.
However, we can't stress enough that these are only general guidelines for helping you determine fabric purchasing, we cannot guarantee that these yardage amounts will be accurate for the quilt that you plan to make.
Buttons and snaps are a potential choking hazard for infants and toddlers, so we suggest you substitute either embroidery or applique for the embellishments, or just leave them off the quilt.What is the minimum yardage for ordering fabric?
When ordering individual fabrics, the minimum cut is 1/4 yard.What does “fabric repeat” mean?
Just like on a roll of wallpaper, designs are repeated over and over again along the length of a bolt of fabric. The length of the repeat is determined by the size of the screens that the mills use to print the fabric. Standard repeats for quilt fabrics are 12", 24" and 36" (for large panels). As an example, the exact same rose on a floral print would appear every 12" or every 24", depending on the repeat.
