There have been many tricks and tools in the wonderful world of quilting that have made life as a quilter sew very easy (pun totally intended). For example, the sewing machine. No more hand quilting, unless that’s a thing you love and spend your time doing. For the rest of us, it leaves more time to design and piece and move on to the next project. Another wonderful thing for the quilting community is pre-cut fabrics. These come in the form of charm packs, jelly rolls, fat quarters, and other bundles. Pre-cuts are just that – a collection of complimentary fabrics that are cut to a specific size. Usually, it’s 2 1/2″ strips, 2 1/2″ squares, 5″ squares, or 10″ squares. These are common dimensions used in most quilting patterns. It’s easy to see the draw of using pre-cuts in a pattern wherever possible! Without further ado, here are our very favorite pre-cut projects just for you!
