Jelly rolls, layer cakes, turnovers, honey buns, desert rolls and honeycomb hexagons have joined the precut world of fat eighths ans fat quarters, charm packs and mini-charms. But are all these terms confusing as you don't know just how big (or small) they may be? This blogger has a list of measurements for these precut goodies: http://www.patchworkposse.com/2013/09/what-is-a-fat-quarter-other-fabric-dimensions-free-printable-chart/ You can even print them out on a business-sized card and carry them with you when you shop!
