    That's horrible. Don't they use one of those expensive cutting dye machines to cut them? They should be perfect! I would complain, even if I had already cut them. I would gather all the pieces and return them and look through the rest of them with a measuring tape and see if I could find one that was 10" exactly. Also, I would google Moda's phone number and call them directly and complain. Tell them how you wasted time cutting them. Make them understand how wrong it is that they are not 10" exactly. Aren't they like $29.95? That's a lot of money to buy pre-cuts that are cut wrong. Especially when they are cut too small.

    I just purchased 40 pre cut 10 x10 called Bali Crackers by Hoffman
    on the tag it says cut by hand slight variations may occur
    guess this gets them off the hook if they don`t measure 10
    whats with calling these crackers?thought they were layer cakes or that just a moda thing
    nothing like confusing us lol

    I think Moda has the market on the pre-cut names as we know them: Charm Pack, Layer Cake, Honey Bun, Jelly Roll. Most of the time when another manufacture is producing these items, they will give them a different name. I have seen Dessert Squares and Robert Kaufman calls their jelly rolls "Roll Ups"

    Wow! That would really be upsetting! I just bought a layer cake (Moda) a few weeks ago; I'm going to check right now. Totally unacceptable; we are already paying a premium price per yard for that convenience and then to be shorted too yet??!! NOT......it would be better to be 10 1/2 and at least cut it down but not 9 3/8". Definitely return to store AND complain to MODA. that is not what we expect from them.

What a pain to have to square them all up - correct that to DOWN - to 9 1/2" Even if I were using these whole, they'd still have to be squared. What's up????? I'm going to take a couple of pictures and send them to Moda. These are too costly for this. I could handle it if they were at least square!

    How luxurious it would be to buy 10" squares that were truly that. I only bought them once, and planned a pattern that involved cutting the squares up.

    This is one of the main reasons I don't buy precuts, along with the cost. I'd rather buy my own fabric and do my own cutting.

    I've had the charm packs be off slightly and wonky quite often.

    Thanks for the heads up on this. I have always prized Moda as a standard in the quilt fabric industry. I read recently that the Bali Pops precuts don't claim to be perfect because they are precut by Bali locals to provide jobs for individuals. Have never tried them. At least they admit to the size issue.
