I need clarification. DH is trying to tell me that there is ONE selvedge...I say there are 2. With this confusion, I think I've effectively cut my strips for my Blooming Nine all wrong...well, not "all wrong," but not correctly, which will (I'm pretty sure) mean that I'll be short (or not) when I get to cutting these all down. Not a huge-big-deal, because making more is easy enough, but I definitely need this clarified. I know, I made my other quilts just fine, but that's because I bought WAY more fabric than I needed, so I have no idea if I cut them wrong or not...but I had plenty of fabric left over, so who knows. Same here...I've got 'extra' fabric when I think I'm not supposed to have because these yardages were ordered closer to the actuals for the pattern than previously. Help!
When a pattern says "cut strips," are they meaning cut LENGTH of fabric or WIDTH of fabric? This one doesn't seem to clarify other than "if you need to cut 4 strips of say 2 1/2" each...start by cutting an 11" piece WOF" (effectively leaving 1" to square it up). I'm not sure if I did that wrong. Can someone put it in plainer english because I apparently don't understand regular english...LOL. Sorry.
