Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I hope the shop owner makes it right for you.
Were they true when bought? Did you wash them? Perhaps it's shrinkage that had nothing to do with the shop owner.

I agree...I work in a fabric store and cut fat quaters all the time..i give about an inch on one side and bout the same on the other. because the fabric is not straight on the bolt when it comes from the factory..that way my customer gets what he/she has paid for..when i get the fabric in i have no idea if it will shrink or not.
