Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: FROM A FAT QUARTER YOU CAN CUT
Hi my name is Colleen Bass and I am the proud owner of Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries . I am so honored to be asked to do some articles for this wonderful blog! I plan on bringing you lots of information on sewing, decorating and some tutorials (if I can get my brain and camera working ok!) that I hope will be fun and informative.
I thought I would start out with this list of squares you can cut from a fat quarter. I know some of you may already know this, but I thought it would be interesting to go over it again. :)


So, did you know that you can cut:

99 – 2” squares

56 – 2.5” squares

42 – 3” squares

30 – 3.5” squares

20 – 4” squares

16 – 4.5” squares

12 – 5” squares

12 – 5.5” squares

9 – 6” squares

6 – 6.5” squares
All I know is that I always end up with lots of squares scattered all over the place when I cut my fabrics!

Now that you know what you can cut out of fat quarters I hope you guys get in those sewing rooms and cut, cut, cut!. Thanks for reading my "first" of many articles and everyone have a really great week!
