I just bought 11 different fabrics for a Harmony/Flying High quilt pattern from www.overrainbow.com. I cut the 5 light pieces last night and kept having such large leftover chunks of fabrics. I checked my order for this morning to make sure I had ordered the right amount. I measured the next piece which was suppose to be a 1& 1/8 yd. It was 1 & 1/4 yd. All of the pieces had generous amounts over the amount ordered. I sent the company an email this morning for cutting such generous amounts. I got a reply, and the owner said that after years of sewing and buying fabric only to find it came up short. She made it a company motto to Always Cut Generous Amounts For The Customer. What a great surprise for this day and time.
