Unless I misunderstand the question, it is a yard (36 inches), which has nothing to do with its width.

A yard of length is always 36", it has nothing to do with the width which could be from 42" to 60".

How Many fat quarters are in a yard of fabric?

There are 4 fat quarters in a yard of fabric.When fabric comes off the bolt it is stored on, it is folded in half so that the selvedge ends are touching. To cut a fat quarter, a half yard is cut from the bolt of fabric. This half yard is then cut in half along the fold, resulting in a quarter yard of fabric (half of a half is a quarter).The fat quarter is used often in quilting because it provides more usable space for quilters than a standard quarter yard cut. A standard quarter yard is 9 inches wide, by the width of fabric on the bolt (anywhere between 40-44 inches is standard width of fabric). A fat quarter is wider, but less long at 18 inches wide by 20-22 inches long.Even though the fat quarter has a different length and width than a standard quarter yard cut, it still represents a quarter yard of fabric. Since four quarters make a whole, each yard of fabric can be cut into exactly 4 fat quarters.
