    Where will I find this information?

    I know pretty well what fat quarters and fat eights are. I know what Jelly Rolls are and what charm packs are, but can anyone give me a list of the various other pre-cuts.

    What I am actually looking for is what the 1.5" strips are called and who sells them. I was pretty sure I had found what I wanted when I watched a tutorial for log cabin recently, but I can't find that now. 8-(

    Who wants to be the brave one and point me to the names of all the pre-cuts?
    GramMER to eighteen, plus two great-granddaughters and four adopted greats soon we hope!

    The 1.5" strips are HoneyBuns.

    Here's a start:

    Even better - you can print the .pdf for future reference:
    http://www.unitednotions.com/equivalent-measures.pdf

    This is from Moda's Bake Shop.

    Just keep in mind that the # of pieces in each bundle can vary across companies, or chain stores, or a LQS making their own version.

    Always check the qty when buying, especially if it's for a specific pattern.

    The same pre-cut will have different names from different companies. Moda trademarked several of the names so the same pre-cut from a different company will have a different name.

    I used to work at a Quilt Shop, she closed her brick and mortar shop and is now on-line only, just before she did that Moda stopped making the honey buns. Other copanies may have them, but Moda does not.

    Don't forget each company calls these cuts by a different name.

    I actually searched the Moda line to see if I could tell what all they advertised, and I could not find the honey buns either by that name or by the 1.5" cut. Then when I went back to see the link, it would not come up for me.

    I wish they would. I'm a spinner and it would mix wonderfully for added interest in some of the yarns I make. What a great idea. A long time ago, I forget which company, but I got a bag of mixed thread ends swept up from a cutting room. They were GREAT! But predominantly red. So some blues, purples and other colors would be great! I'm hoping 'they' listen to you

    I now use this ruler to create my own 'jelly rolls' etc as I was fed up with pre-cut (even Moda) inaccuracies, bowed middles and those damned pinked edges.

    Thanks for the info! I downloaded and printed the Moda Bake Shop pdf then wrote the other mentioned measurements on that page. It's good information to have.
