    There was a sale and I bought 10 yrds of about 5 or 6 different fabrics. Nothing really I would use as backing, would you suggest cutting it into fat quarters or by the yard. Its been washed just not ironed yet, that is like fighting a monkey in the bath.

    I would cut it into yard cuts if you are sure you aren't going to use it for backing. It will be easier to iron and fold. And the pile will be bigger! It seems like I have more fabric.

    I would keep it the way it is. You never know what you will need it for.

    Agree - Don't cut it! You might end up wanting to fussy cut part of it, or need just that tad bit more than you cut it ... at least that's what would happen to me! :lol:
