    That's not a dumb question, we all have to learn sometime.

    jelly rolls are 2 1/2 in strips that are the width of fabric (WOF) or 42 to 44 inches

    fat quarters are pieces of fabric cut 18" x 22"

    I believe charms are either a 4" square of a 5" square

    there are also layer cakes, they are larger squares, but I'm not sure the size, maybe 10"???

    and there is another one that is strips like the jelly rolls, I think they are called Honey Buns and are 1 1/2" by WOF.

    Hope this helps!

    That is not a dumb question at all 2 years ago I couldn't wrap my brain around just what a fat quarter was, now I have more than enough. I like making table runners out of the charm packs. It is all coordinated and I don't have to match anything up. There are nice patterns out there for the precut fabrics.
    Everyone here is so helpful. I have learned a lot reading the answers to other peoples questions.
