Origami – fat quarter style

Back on the subject of that old fabric addiction, is there anything nicer than leaving your favourite emporium armed with a selection of fat quarters, especially when they come all neatly packaged together like this.

As I now sell some fabric myself, I’ve been trying to work out how to do this lovely boat fold in order to present my wares in a more attractive manner. I couldn’t quite work out how to do it, so this afternoon, while doing yet more tidying in Spare ‘Oom I set about documenting how it is done.

Then it was my turn, could I recreate it with some of my own fabric?

The trick I discovered is to ensure that your first two folds are on the longest side of your fabric otherwise your folded triangles will overlap in the middle. After a couple of attempts I had mastered the art of fat quarter origami!
