Product Questions What is a fat quarter? 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 44" wide, unless stated otherwise in the description. What is a Medley? A Medley is a group of fabrics themed according to color, design or creative concept. They may be purchased as a group in fat quarter cuts, or may be purchased individually by the yard. Many of the Medleys are also available to purchase as a group in 1/2 yard or one yard cuts. What is a good project for a beginner? Quilters Treasure Stained Glass, Applique for Cheaters & instant Stained Glass Techniques are for all levels and are excellent for first time quilters. The Glass Pazza series are real stained glass patterns. The patterns contain written directions, the order to place the Leadline are numbered in sequence to apply. We recommend starting with a small quilt that features simple block. A demonstration is available on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjnZ8EExaEs 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 yards for a pieced top, 1-1/2 yards for backing, and 1/2 yd for binding. A twin size 72" x 90" requires approximately 9 yards for a pieced top, 5-1/2 yards for backing, and 3/4 yards for binding. A double size 81" x 96" requires approximately 10 yards for a pieced top, 6 yards for backing, and 1 yd for binding A queen size 90" x 108" requires approximately 12 yards for a pieced top, 9 yards for backing, and 1 yd for binding. And a king size 120" x 120" requires approximately 15 yards for a pieced top, 10 yards for backing, and 1-1/4 yards 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.

Why are your shipping charges so high? We keep our shipping charges as low as possible. All of our shipping charges have been determined by researching the actual average cost of shipping our packages. Also, delivery is guaranteed. If your order gets to you in poor condition, or not at all, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll take care of it! What does Ã¢â‚¬Å“fabric repeatÃ¢â‚¬Â 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. To help answer some of your "What did they mean by that?" questions, here are some of the terms used in the catalog, defined and explained for your convenience. Ã¢â‚¬Â¢Fabric: All fabric is first-quality, 44" wide cotton unless otherwise stated. Fabrics sold by the yard have a one-half yard minimum cut. Ã¢â‚¬Â¢Fat quarter: A fat quarter is a quarter yard cut that measures 18" x 22" rather than the standard 9" x 44" quarter yard. A great way to build your fabric collection! Ã¢â‚¬Â¢Featured fabric: This is the main or key fabric in a Medley. It is shown in the large photo. Ã¢â‚¬Â¢Kit: A kit contains everything you need for the top and binding of a quilt, or everything needed to make a project such as a doll or critter. Ã¢â‚¬Â¢MedleyÃ¢â€žÂ¢: A Medley is a group of several fabrics themed according to color, design or creative concept. If you want a larger cut than is listed in the catalog, please let us know. We'll be happy to cut a larger size especially for you. All fabrics are available for sale by the yard. Please call for pricing if not shown in the catalog. Ã¢â‚¬Â¢PatternPlusÃ¢â€žÂ¢: A PatternPlus is a pattern which also includes one or more additional items such as fabric or embellishments to get you started quickly on your project. Ã¢â‚¬Â¢Scrap Bags: Made up of fabric left over from cutting kits and Medleys. Scrap bags contain first-quality cotton fabric. Not really "scraps!"
