    Well I didnīt know a few of these, so thought you might like this info I got from a magazine.
    CHARM PACKS: pre-cut packs of 5" square
    JELLY ROLLS : (USA name for Swiss Roll in England) Packs of 2 1/2" wide x width of fabric in strips.
    LAYER CAKES : Packs of 10" squares
    HONEY BUNS : Introduced by Moda, coordinated strips of 1 1/2" x width of fabric.
    TURNOVERS: Packs of triangles precut diagonally rom 6" squares
    BALI POPS : From Hoffman these are jelly rolls cut from Bali fabrics
    SWEET 16s: These are 1/16" yard cuts of fabric measuring 9" x 11" (Thats what it said, this one didnīt make sense to me either, had to read it twice)
    SWEET ROLLS: 5 1/2" wide strips x width of fabric
    TWICE THE CHARM: 5 1/2" strips x approx 22" from RJR Fabric Manuf.. Number in pack also varies depending on the theme or fabric.
    COLORWRAPS: Packs of 7" squares, introduced by Hoffman based on its 1895 collection

    Now I think I know what I am looking at better, hope it helps.

    Thank you Sulabug, my pleasure. I find these names facinating and wonder just who thinks them up.

    Thanks! Another thing to keep in mind is that the packs vary in quantity. You have to read carefully to be sure you are getting what you think you are getting, especially on ebay. :)

    I thought that too, I think you need the various labels that different manufacturer put out.

    Sometimes the post title can be deceiving. I was thinking Joe, or Sam and things like that. Silly me.

    You got my attention! I love pre-cuts. I'm addicted to them, and can't stop buying them. They are so fun!!!

    Someone (here, I think) asked about Saltines awhile back. Don't think anyone answered. Having thought about it for awhile, I am wondering if Saltines might be those little 2-inch by 2-inch fabric samples you can sometimes get for a fabric line or swatch set. Anyone heard of Saltines???
