    Hmmm, had to Google 'Honey Bun' to find out what it was, as I hadn't heard the term before. In answer to your question, I like the idea of both, but don't think I would be able to bring myself to use them. I think they would end up as decorative items, just like Quilter1962.

    I just buy yardage, to much of a price raise to have it in strips or squares. If I bought them; Two rolls would take care of my monthly budget....If I had a lot of money...yes i would buy lots of goodies :oops: :roll: :wink:

    I just checked honey buns wow that is pricey :roll: :roll:

    I made a quilt last year with a jelly roll and charm squares. The pattern is titled Strips n Bits. I loved the quality of the fabrics. It was so easy to work with them. The only problem was sorting lights and darks as the roll and charm pack has the entire collection. I needed more definition between the dark and light, but it is still a pretty quilt.

    I think the same as a Jelly roll 2 1/2" x 44" strips, though there is also a 1 1/2" precut strip out there as well. The Jelly rolls typically come with 35 or so strips from a line of fabrics that go together.
