Thanks for your note, Carol! For further clarification-- the size of a fat quarter from Spoonflower will depend on what fabric type your order and will be a quarter of the printable size. So for linen, you would receive a piece of fabric sized 27" x 18" (since a yard prints at 54" x 36") and using 1/4" seam allowance you could get a square pillow that is at least 17.5" x 17.5" using two fat quarters. Hope this helps, Melinda! If you need more clarification, please don't hesitate to contact our help team at help@spoonflower.com Best, Allie

Hi Melinda, A fat quarter is a quarter of a yard-- no difference at all. And yes, you can typically make a pillow from a fat quarter, depending on how large of pillow you like! Best, Allie
