    Edges are pinked to reduce unraveling. Certain fabrics are more prone than others, but cotton does still unravel. I have some 1.5" strips that were not pinked, and they unravel something awful.

    FYI: digital prints are printed on a finer weave fabric and thus do not unravel nearly as much as traditional prints. I would expect batiks to be more stable for the same reason.

    If you want JRs that don't have pinked edges, buy from Jordan Fabrics. Matt cuts a lot of what they sell.

    Matt cuts all sizes of precuts, all with straight edges!

    Sometimes I wonder about the fabrics he pulls together though.

    Thanks all for your input. I learned now to always measure my precuts!

    I agree about some of the fabric combos on Jordan Fabrics. I'm not crazy about some of the fabrics they combine for their log cabin quilts. Sometimes they seem too "busy". I sure wish I could visit their quilt store. Just having a virtual tour from their videos makes me realize how much fabric they stock. On a rare occasion I have ordered fabric from them. That Abundance quilt with the Kaffe Fassett fabrics is on my bucket list. For internet shopping, M* is always my first choice if I can find what I'm looking for.

    Thanks for the info on the pinked edges. That's why I ask if I'm not sure about something.

    I just wish the manufacturers would just stop pinking the edges; I would rather deal with a little bit of raveling than having to measure and remember if I have to sew on the peak or in the valley to have accurate seams
