Quilting Terminology – Width of Fabric (WOF)


Hi it’s Jenny from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

Have you ever wondered what the term “Width of Fabric” means? Sometimes in your patterns you’ll see the letters WOF. What that means is width of fabric, and your width of fabric is your fabric cut from one selvedge edge to the other. So, straight up and down from one selvedge edge to the other. That is the width of fabric.

So if your pattern ever calls for width of fabric or WOF, now you know!
