    When adding quarter-yard cuts to your stash, do you prefer fat quarters (18" x 22" ) or skinny (9" x 44" )?

    Prefer half yard cuts. But if I get a quarter yard it would be "fat".

    If I'm buying a 1/4yd, I want it fat for the most part. I don't usually buy less than a yard for stash building purposes, though.

    Originally it was the fats, which I loaded up on. I then realized I love making quilts out of 2.5" strips, so my fat quarters don't get used as much and are sitting on the shelf :( So if I could do it again, I think I would do skinnies. Or half yards
