nd bottom and a little less than 18" in the center. The other piece that I am using came from a quilt shop, cut with a rotary cutter so it is exact. Maybe I should go buy some more fabric?
well it is as good a reason as any. but if it is less than 1/2 yard at any point, then I would make a point of talking to the supervisor, nicely. But pointedly. Consider it a public service for someone who had to travel ages to get to that shop, bought fabric in good faith, needed exactly half a yard, sat down to use it and found it was incorrect....that is rageous territory.
Well said! I'm one of those people who has to "travel for ages" -- well 80 miles worth of travel anyways. I'd definitely say something to them.
