Fat quarters or one piece?

I'm selling some unused craft items on ebay at the moment. I have some vintage fabrics, Cath Kidston and some Liberty, amongst others. Would you sell them as larger pieces or cut into fat quarters?

Larger definitely. People who want to use them for quilts can cut them up but if you cut them then you'll lose the buyers who might want them for clothing etc.

Thanks for that. It will save on trips to the post office too.

Larger. I get so sick of trawling eBay for by the metre or large remnants and coming across fat quarter after fat quarter, especially as the prices are so misleading - you click on it thinking it's a by the metre price, then it's... yet more fat quarters.

Esp as they're vintage fabrics - even a metre could make something useful if whole. But if cut up - you're competing against the other million people selling fat quarters and you've taken away the buyer's chance to make something else. If quilters want it - they'll buy it.

Also less work for you!

I agree and it's going on Ebay as it is.
