What is a Fatty Cake?

We know what you're thinking: What the heck is a Fatty Cake, and why do I care?

A Fatty Cake is a set of fabrics that are precision cut 10" strips by half width of fabric. This gives you SO MUCH versatility when it comes to what patterns you can use. Each Fatty Cake is equal to at least one of the following: 
  • 40-10" Squares (AKA a Layer Cake)
  • 120-5" Squares (AKA Charm Packs x 4)
  • 20 Fat Eighths
  • 40-2.5" Strips (AKA Jelly Roll, PLEASE NOTE these strips are 4 half WOF rather than 2 full width of fabric)
We have all seen a line of fabric that we just LOVE, we want a taste of each print, and we have no idea what we want to do with it. That's where Fatty Cakes come in: A coordinated set of fabrics that are the most versatile of all pre-cuts.
