Folding Fat Quarter Tutorial

As promised... though a little late, I have our Valli & Kim Fat Quarter Tutorial. I've seen lots of different ways to fold fat quarters, even triangles, but I like how V&K protects the raw edges. You can also use this folding method on 1/2 yards as well. The uniformity in shapes makes storing and viewing your fabric easier!

You may iron your fat quarter, but it isn't necessary. 

Fold in half with the selvage and raw edge together.

Then fold into thirds (the selvage is still at the top).


Then you fold into thirds again. 

There will be a little pocket is where  you stuff the selvage
edged third in. 

Tada! Crisp, clean, and ready to store or give away. 

I hope this is helpful to ya'll!

Really helpful but I bet I have done 200 this way and when I haven't done it for a while I can't remember how. Please do not ever remove this post, I keep referring to it often.
