Now, as to why I am not mentioning the fabric shop by name. I always check to see if I get the amount of fabric I pay for. To me, good shops give just a tad bit over the amount...just to make up for if they cut crooked. Of the ten of these, one solid measured a quarter inch over 18 inches in length, a bout three of them measured the 18 inches by tugging the fabric tight. And the others all were about 1/8 inch shy of 18 inches.
I won't say anything to them....it is not that much. I was thinking when I had bought a length of fabric they gave a bit extra, so will wait and see how it goes when I buy a length. I just think good fabric shops give at least a thumbs width extra. It is good policy and makes for good will. And some of my favorite shops give an inch or two. Of all the quilt shops I have been to, most are the latter. As I said, I think before when I have purchased from this shop, that I have gotten a tad bit extra. So will try to withhold judgement. I got these at a good price, so shouldn't complain now.
