I thought I saw a topic like this one somewhere...but I can't remember. I am starting a new project. It involves cutting 14 fat quarter's into strips3" wide by 22" which I am assuming is the WOF. Now, using 14 quarter yard cuts instead of FQ's, do you think I should first cut down the center to make the cut go from 44" to 22" or so? I'm supposed to end up with 5 strips and I'm thinking with 1/4 yd being 9"..that will only be three strips unless I slit the fabric down the center...I think I'm confused. You can't uncut and recut like you can once you start sewing. I don't want to start cutting until I know what I'm doing. If FQ's werent so expensive, I just would've bought those..but those 1/4 yd cuts were only .25 a piece!!
