I have found a great way to fold fat quarters instead of the typical square folding. Here we go:
First, lay out your fat quarter and fold into thirds, lengthwise.
Tuck up the lower left-hand corner. This is what will make the point of your first triangle.
It may take a little adjusting until you get the hang of it.
Start folding from the bottom right-hand side.
Continue folding until there is a small flap left. Tuck flap inside.
They can be stacked in a criss-cross style.
Tie with a ribbon or piece of twine and you're done!
