Re: Would they hate me?

Once upon a time I worked at JoAnns as a teen/college student. We cut 1/8 yards and when calico went uber cheap I would cut 1/8 yard from 40 bolts sometimes. Part of the job. I do agree with the grouchy but though i worked with some VERY special ladies back then

Do they have the colors you want in fat quarters?

The cut is the same regardless of how long the fabric cut is. Whether its a quarter of a yard or 4 yards, it still only requires one cut to remove it from the bolt.

Having said that, check the remnants for what you need first. Remnants are often just less than a yard, and they are, at least at JoAnns, 50% off whatever the current price is. And I think this week they are having a sale on remnants that takes 50% off that! It might be next week that that sale starts. I think, I can't remember and my sale paper is upstairs.

They do, but the prices are inflated, and I prefer long strips.

Maybe I will get 1/4 yard of each.

Just get what you need! There is no reason to get more if you do not need it
