Has this been discussed? Just went to the new LQS (which was a woeful disappointment - very small inventory but with promises for more - I think she should've held off her grand opening myself). Anyway, she had a shelf of "Quarter Flats." ???? She worked at Joann's in Austin. They changed Fat Quarter to Quarter Flat because it's more PC?
What in the world?! A PC piece of fabric?! How ludicrous!!!
Fat Chance I'm going to remember to say "Quarter Flat" now... And I'm certainly not referring to anyone's body shape when discussing FQ's!
I wonder if JoAnn's changed the name because nobody knew what a FQ really was? First time I heard the term, I didn't know.
Edit -- But come to think of it, "Quarter Flat" wouldn't be instantly obvious, either. You could think it's a quarter yard of fabric (9" wide) folded flat.This message has been edited. Last edited by: StarrySky,

we could change Jelly Roll, Turnovers, etc tooo. way too much emphasis on food there..... I hate trying to shop online and not be told what the measurements are on those titled cuts. I just don't buy them if I don't know what they are.
