Building Blocks: All About Precut Fabric from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Precut fabric saves time and effort when creating quilting projects.

Precut fabric revolutionized the quilting world. The quilting skill was historically passed down through teaching – one would learn the intricate and mathematical approach of measuring and cutting fabric by hand from the generation that came before. Anyone who has pieced a quilt knows it’s difficult work! Before you could even consider your project or layout, all the fabrics must be cut from bolts or repurposed from used materials.

Sunday/Monday Quilt Inspiration: Mini Charm Squares from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

memorial day quotes ronald reagan

An Unmetered Ode to PreCuts from Quilting Studio Adventures

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: 10" Layer Cakes from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

The last couple of Sundays I've been using fabric precuts to inspire you, so this Sunday we'll keep going with layer cakes. You can find the SQI post on charm squares here and the SQI on jelly rolls here


Personalized Photo Charms Compatible with Pandora Bracelets. Here is another great info chart from www.minnesotacharms.com

10" squares are large enough that they can be cut down to any size that is at least ten inches. They are especially good for making disappearing patch quilts, such as disappearing four patch or disappearing nine patch.
