When I’m not playing with my camera, reading a book, or doing ordinary household chores, you might find me at my quilting table.
A fat quarter (in case you’re wondering) is 1/4 of a yard of fabric. But instead of being cut directly from a bolt of fabric – yielding a piece of cloth 9″ by about 44″ – a fat quarter is a half yard of fabric cut from the bolt then crosscut to get a piece of cloth 18″ x 22″.
Speaking of cutting, did you know quilters have all kinds of special rulers made to be used with a rotary cutter? Hmmm, should have taken a picture of a rotary cutter.
Then there is thread. Basic gray or cream for putting quilt blocks together. But ever so many choices for adding interest when finishing a quilt project!
Added: There is a picture that includes a rotary cutter in a blog I did in late 2019 for one of Frank’s photo challenge of the word common! Click here to see the post and find the rotary cutter.
