The Fat Quarterly

NEW! More Pages, More News, More Inspiration!

The Summer 2022 issue of the Fat Quarterly features Nancy Halverson and her latest collection Wander Lane. Read her interview, discover her exclusive pattern and get the preview precuts!

Nancy really knows how to make her fabrics sing with a medley of fresh and appealing colors, and a variety of designs. For this issue of the Fat Quarterly, she designed the Time for Tulips mini quilt shown on the cover. Hear more from her in the Designer Spotlight, including the surprising set-up you’ll find in her basement.

We’re also introducing two new features in this issue: Block Remix and Create-Inspire-Delight.

On the Block Remix page, you’ll find three different designers’ renditions of a traditional quilt block – the Friendship star.

Create-Inspire-Delight is our version of an inspiration board – sharing great ideas to get your creative juices flowing. Last but not least, now you can subscribe/renew/gift The Fat Quarterly with an easy online payment.


Due to high demand, we are extending the deadline for the all new Fat Quarterly subscriptions.

We are adding a new mailing round at the beginning of September.

Shipping September 5th, 2022 to all subscriptions purchased by August 25th, 2022.

Fat Quarterly magazine for quilters and sewists by Benartex

See the newest fabrics before they arrive at your shops and see the great finished projects from our readers. The Fat Quarterly also features interesting websites, book reviews, and super easy and cute projects. Past issues of The Fat Quarterly have included themes, contests, stories and recipes. You just never know what you will find! Be sure to sign up today!

I am a recent subscriber, and am enjoying quilting with the sample packs. Thought I would send you pics of the first three things I’ve made: a table runner, and two mini quilts, front and back images, as I like to use all pieces possible of a collection. Looking forward to the next mailing!

“I really look forward to my mail.”
“I can’t wait to get the next issue.”
“It makes it easy to see the new fabrics.”
“Look what I made with my swatches.”

Membership is fun and easy. The swatches are automatically sent to our members quarterly, along with The Fat Quarterly newsletter. The 5 x 5″ swatch packs have a minimum of 20 swatches in each pack, and we provide a corresponding list of style numbers so you can take your swatches to your local quilt shop if you wish to purchase more yardage.

You might be wondering… Who’s Mr. B?
