Dear Moda

Dear Moda,

I would think by now you would know what a square is.  You know, the one we all learned about in in geometry and every quilter knows how to make perfectly. Your individual "Northern Cardinal" blocks are NOT square which made for some fudging to make them a 9 inch square.  See picture at the 9 inch lines if you don't believe me.  (Top right hand corner).  The bottom left corner is where the ruler starts.

In future panels, please check that they are geometrically correct or print a label letting people know that they are not.

LOL I am with you...

Did you know that fabric grain is usually true, until they PRINT or put other finishes on it? Seems to me, when printing panels, stripes, etc, the process could be done to make it PRINT true as well!

I always go by how it looks, instead of the actual grain, with these. Sometimes you can tug them into submission.

Oooohhh! I hate when this happens! I agree that sometimes you can tug or press them into submission, but boy, do I hate to do it.
