Frequently Asked Questions

Fabrics

Will my fabric be sent as one piece?
Yes, we always send fabric in one piece. If we cannot do this, we will contact you before posting to check with you.
Swatch Service
In some cases we can supply a small swatch of material to ensure it goes with your project. There is a small fee to cover this – please contact us for more details.
What is a fat quarter?
To get a fat quarter we cut half a metre of fabric off the bolt (vertically). We then cut this again across the middle (horizontally). Unless otherwise stated our fabrics are 110cm wide, and our fat quarters are metric, so measure a minumum of 50 x 55cm.
Quilty Pleasures Tips for getting the most out of your fabric…
With so much choice out there, it can be hard to decide what fabric to buy to make a quilt. We advise you to start with a fabric that you love, with your heart and your head, and then work the rest of your palette from that. There are no mistakes when buying fabric, only extras for your stash! We only sell fabric from manufacturers with a reputation for quality; however we do advise pre-washing fabrics before using them.
