Thin Fabric

I love this print...I got here
But it's not a very good fabric. It's thin, not thick like this one of the fish.
I have also had cutting trouble with it....I cut it all wrong, so stitch me.
I ordered more. I cut into the new chunk, and then needed the first chunk to complete the second-chunk-cut.....I had forgotten I had washed the first chunk, but not the second. The shrinkage is alot! almost 3 inches.
And I am having trouble sewing it. Oh well, I will do what I can with it and see if enough of it works in the pattern [one block wonder-stack n whack like the fish fabric] and if not, I have a lot of wide strips I can combine with something else to make a striped quilt. Simple.
BTW....this faish fabric is awesome to work with, thick and workable.
