    Hi there found this on ebay and was wondering how much material is in each.
    100% Cotton Fat Quarters

    from the shelves of our Quilt Shoppe.



    Fat quarters are used to make quilts, purses, decorate clothing with applique. There are so many uses for fat quarters, they make books devoted to the use of the fat quarter cut. They are the preferred cut for a quarter yard for most quilters.



    Each fat quarter sells for 1.40, you can decide how many you would like.



    We have lots and lots of fabric! Our photo's show only a few of our bolts available. Each fat quarter is cut from the bolt and is in great condition.

    Fat quarter is 1/4 yard of fabric. But rather than being 9" by width of fabric, it is 18" x 22", 1/2 yard cut of fabric, cut again at the foldline.

    usually a fat quarter is about 24" x 18" $1.50 is a great price depending on the shipping cost.

    Is the shipping $1.49 per FQ? If so then that's a lot for shipping. It only costs me .61 to ship 1 FQ unless it's out of the US.

    1.40 per fat quarter is a great buy Even Joanne's and Walmart are getting 1.99 and 2.29 each So unless postage is really out there it is a good deal
