I'm kinda new to this so will take any and all advise. I'm using Moda "Over the Rainbow" jellyrolls. Two of them in fact. All the strips are wider than 2 1/2. They are advertised as 2 1/2 but in actuality they are a little over 2 3/4. Anyone ever heard of this? I'm measuring from side to side, from the outside cut of the pinking sheer cut. Am I doing that right?
One reason I ask is I have bought fabric (not enough jellyroll fabric) to complete my quilt. Obviously if I cut my fabric into 2 1/2 strips they wont fit the jelly roll strips and if I use just the cut strips, those squares will be larger. Correct? I'm doing a nine patch.
Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.
