Have you ever wondered what a Fat Quarter is, why it is cut in the shape it is and what you can do with a Fat Quarter? This article will explain to you what a Fat Quarter is, how it is cut and what the advantages of a Fat Quarter.

One yard of quilting fabric usually measures 36 inches by 44 inches. If you cut this one yard into regular quarter yard cuts across the fabric’s crosswise grain you would get 4 fabric strips with each measuring 9 inches by 44 inches. This thin and long strip of fabric is not a very useful shape.

A Fat Quarter is also a quarter yard fabric but it has a different shape. To get a Fat Quarter you would divide one yard of quilting fabric into four large rectangles with each rectangle measuring 18 inches by 22 inches. This rectangle is your Fat Quarter and its shape is very versatile as it allows a larger variety of fabric pieces that can be cut with the extra height and you also get more fabric pieces on the vertical grain of the fabric.

There are so many different quilting and crafting projects for which a Fat Quarter can be used for. Great projects for which you should consider a Fat Quarter for are table runners, book covers, wall hangings, baby quilts, bed quilts, fabric bowls, basket liners, placemat, album covers, handbags, potholders, pin cushions, etc. Now you know why quilters, sewers, crafters and scrap bookers all love Fat Quarters alike. Knowing how you can cut a Fat Quarter will help you plan and design your next creative project.

Here are some examples of how you can cut a Fat Quarter:

9 - 6" x 6" quilt squares
12 - 5" x 5" quilt squares
16 - 4.5 x 4.5" quilt squares
20 - 4" x 4" fabric squares

That is only a small list of how you can cut a Fat Quarter. With its versatile shape you can also cut round, oval and other odd shapes out of a Fat Quarter.

Making a Fabric Bowl is as easy as ABC and it is a lot of fun. Just follow our step-by-step instructions and within an hour, you will be awarded with your very own Fabric Bowl. Let's get started.

Select your fabric of choice - I picked some beautiful Joel Dewberry Fabric for my Fabric Bowl project.










Used the size of your favorite bowl. Measure the bowl from side to side going underneath the bowl. That will give you the diameter of the circle you need to cut.

Cut two fabric circles , put the two fabric circles left side together and use a thick interfacing that has glue on both side to iron the two fabric circles together.


Now draw a circle in the center of one of your fabric circles. That will be your flat bottom. I used a small bowl to draw my circle - it should be at least 3 inches in diameter.








Now divide the fabric circle into eights. From the outside of the circle, measure 3 inches along the line you have drawn. Draw a triangle as show in the below picture - it is 3 inches long and 1 inch wide on the bottom.



Continue to do so all along the "eights" lines you have previous drawn.












You should end up with 8 triangles.












Now choose a zig zag stitch of your liking and stitch all along the circle in the center of your fabric circle.



Now it is time to zig zag stitch the triangles you have cut.











Start to zig zag stitch from the inner circle. When you get to the triangle, pull the sides of your triangle together and stitch it together with a tight zig zag stitch.




Continue to do so with all the triangles you have cut. Once done, your fabric circles have now taken on the shape of a bowl.










The last step is to zig zag stitch all around the edge of your fabric bow. Voila, you are done with your very own Fabric Bowl.

Have you noticed that the Fabric Bowl is reversible? That is why I choose two different types of fabric.
