I typically buy fat quarters if I don't know how I will use the fabric.
I fold each fat quarter as follows:
I then unfold 2-3 pieces (iron the last few inches if necessary) and cut the strips needed.
I then cut the strips in half so they are a little over 10 inches long and strip together, cross-cut using my Shape Cut Ruler and finished sewing my four patches.
