    new 5 " charm packs with straight edges?

    Is Westminster the only company that creates precuts with smooth edges?

    I don't know but prefer the pinked edges because they don't fray as fast. Hugs, Jan L

          I get more fuzz in my sewing machine with the pinked pre-cuts, almost like sewing with flannel.

            That's weird! I wonder why that happens? You would think it'd be the opposite!

              Can anyone tell me where to measure the 1/4 inch seam on the pinked edge, from the point or the indentation? It isn't a big difference but if you combine the pinked fabric with straight edged fabric I'm sure it can make a difference.

                When I've used them I go from the point. when I sew them to a straight edge I line up the points with the edge. I don't know if it's the recommended way but it worked fo me.

                  Line up the points with the edge is the correct answer!

                    I just finished watching the second of Jenny's sympoz classes and she said, "I tend to measure from the valley instead of the peak, but which ever you choose, just keep it consistent and you'll be fine." Hope that helps
