What's Your Favorite Pre-Cut?

What's Your Favorite Pre-Cut?

 Do you have a favorite pre-cut? Maybe your favorite is the fat-quarter bundle...a quarter yard of every print in a collection is a quilter's delight...

And those fat quarter bundles are so versatile--you can make a good sized quilt or two and still have left-overs for your stash! If something just a bit smaller is what you're looking for...the fat-eighth bundle might be just what you need.

 

Or maybe your favorite pre-cut is the Moda Candy. They are not only cute, but they also can make up into lots of wonderful projects. Pick up a pack or two and you are on your way to a lot of quilting goodness!

Charm packs are always good to have on hand, too. Use a pattern made specifically for charms...or make a mini-quilt using charm squares!

Maybe the Layer Cake is your favorite pre-cut? Those larger squares make quilts go together quickly, and extra layer cake squares can make lots of scrappy sampler blocks.

All of the blocks pictured above, and many of the blocks in the quilt below were pieced from Layer Cake squares! Layer cakes can easily be cut into 1 1/2" or 2 1/2" strips or squares. Or cut a couple of charm squares and a variety of pieces from the other half.

Then there is the ever-useful Jelly Roll...width of fabric pre-cut strip goodness! There are so many patterns to choose from...did you know the "Starlight" quilt by Thimbleblossoms below is a jelly roll quilt...it just takes a jelly roll, background, and an accent fabric!

Or how about the Slice...pre-cut 10" triangles perfect for lots of fun projects or for a whole quilt!

Did you know you can download a handy measurement chart here. This handy chart gives information on how many charm packs or layer cakes you'll need for a variety of different sized quilts.

So...which pre-cut (or two or three or more) is your favorite? Betcha can't pick just one!
