I was reading the new quilt books I got for Christmas--all by Judy Martin. She suggests cutting fabric along the selvage, rather than folding selvage to selvage. I think I've been doing it the other way for too long to change now. :roll: Besides she says usually it's a half yard so is 18 inch strips--I often buy more than a half yard. She says to layer 4 fabrics flat--no folds and cut through all of them. Yikes. Sounds like trouble to me.
