I have 5 coordinating pieces of fabric that measure 18x23". Does anybody know what they are? Are they fat quarters?

I'm not sure what the measurements of a FQ are, I just wanted to say your fabrics are lovely. :)

A fat quarter is 18" X 22" or sometimes 18" X 20" depends on the width of the fabric.

Pretty colors.

So it appears that they're fat quarters. Ok, now to figure out what fun thing I can use them for. I have lots of fat quarters, but I've used any before.

If you are looking for a quick quilt/comforter, look at Legacy's "Cheaper by the Half Dozen". you will need one more fatquarter,but this is an easy pattern. I just finished one for a shower in bright, primary colors. I tied it off with matching floss.
