So I bought fat quarters for a quilt a year ago I am finally getting around to cutting the quilt out and some of my fats are only 18 x 21. I am supposed to cut three strips from each fat two 8.5" and one 3.5" and I can't get all three strips out of the fat. I am so annoyed. I hope I can find the fabrics that I need. Thank Goodness for the Internet.
Has anyone else had this problem before? What is the solution - always get half a yard instead of just a fat?
