Update Friday 8/23: Since I also bought a charm pack and yardage to go with this, I decided to use it anyway and trim the strips down to the correct width. Thank you to all who visited and commented for your suggestions. I'll be very wary about buying precuts in the future.
Whoever heard of a jelly roll this wide?
To use this for a pattern that requires a jelly roll (standard width 2-1/2"), I'll have to cut off a heavy 1/8" from each strip. Yeesh! Kinda defeats the purpose of buying a jelly roll, doesn't it.
This jelly roll came from a well-known nationwide fabric & craft store, but I bought it last year and I no longer have the receipt, so I can't return it. Makes me mad!
