Squares from a Fat Quarter

We all got 'em...fat quarters. 

What do you do with them?

Before I opened my quilt shop, I was a maker, just like you - I sewed patches on scout uniforms and made hundreds of Tshirt Quilts.  What I bought for my personal fun was fat quarter bundles, then if I liked something more - I bought yardage of that particular color.  I found a fat quarter was good for most everything I was doing.

So, I have decided to honor the fat quarter this month.  I know some people don't like fat quarters and that is fine.  Pre-Cuts are not for everyone, but there are a lot of people out there that LOVE Fat Quarters - that is why you see so many around!

For the first little tips - here is a list on how many squares you can get from a fat quarter.
