This morning, I picked up enough Kona Iron & Steel to complete my Roller Rink quilt top. If you read yesterday you'll remember that I had an issue with the Kona Steel I purchased a few weeks ago, that it was very off-grain and I lost a lot of fabric in order to square it up.
So the question was to mention or not mention it at the quilt shop. It wasn't their fault, but they might like to know, so I decided to say something.
It was the strangest thing. She looked at me like I had three eyes when I described it to her. She said that she never pays attention to grain and always just cuts from fold to selvedge no matter what. She didn't even seem to know what I meant by "square up the fabric." Then I told her that I solved it by making a snip and tearing the fabric from selvedge to selvedge to get the true grain to which she said "oh, you should never tear your fabric."
Okay then. Clearly I was not making any sense to her so I bought my fabric and left and will hope for the best. Honestly, the Steel I bought today, to the naked eye, looks pretty straight, so either what I had before wasn't from this same bolt, or maybe part of the bolt was warped?
Anyways, onwards and upwards!
