Fat Quarter Idea

If you have a lot of fat quarters just sitting around wondering what to do, cut them into standard size scrap and be ready to use and enjoy any of the number of patterns and tutorials designed for pre-cut fabrics.

Check out this diagram with directions on how to cut a fat quarter with no waste: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dreamthinkergal/7057136651

PS–If you find that your fabric is a bit narrow, start with the 10″ & 5″ charms & if there’s not enough for the full 2″ strip it can go in your string bin!
