    I've seen fat eighths on e-bay but never "plump" ones. Maybe they are going for a more politically correct term. Fat might hurt the fabric's feelings.

    There have been 8ths sold for a while, but they were 9" x 22" - like a fat quarter but you start with 9" instead of 18". I can't remember what those are called, though.
