Can I trust that your fabric is high quality?

AQS takes great pride in the selection of ONLY top-notch fabrics for our catalog, online sales, and for special offers. We never offer anything less than premier-quality fabric, and it is always 100% cotton unless otherwise noted.

How wide is the average cut of fabric?

The fabric that we sell averages 42” – 44” wide.

How big is a fat quarter?

A fat quarter is a piece of fabric that measures 18” x 22”. 

Why would I want a fat quarter?

A fat quarter offers more versatility than a regular quarter yard. You’ll be able to cut it into larger portions.

How do I launder 100% cotton fabric?

Cotton is durable and soft, but it does tend to shrink a bit due to the contraction of the natural fibers. You can moderate the shrinkage by washing in cold water, whether by machine or by hand. Line drying is also recommended.  Many quilters wash 100% cotton fabric at a warm temperature and dry it in a dryer before they begin to cut it. Pre-shrinking in this way eliminates most of the shrinkage problem.
