Late to the party…

I take so much joy in selecting just the right fabrics for my quilts, that I have not been interested in pre-cuts.

However, as I was blog hopping around one day I landed at Rachel’s blog (p.s. i quilt) as she announced her Build A Quilt Workshop.  An online class using pre-cuts, hmmm.  Two things new to me.  So I quickly signed up.

Rachel is using a private Flickr group for the class and posting instructions as we go along.  I am having so much fun! While I’ll never give up my usual method of quilt making, this is almost like a sewing vacation. The fabrics are chosen, the instructions are there to follow and all I am doing is having fun putting it all together. I’m guessing you might see a few more pre-cuts working their way into my quilts in the future.

How about you?  Have you worked with pre-cuts?  Do you like them?

    I often use precuts to make some samples for magazines or tutorials for my customers. I think they are really helpful: saves cutting time and you get an assortment of about 40 different matching fabrics for a nice price. The only thing is: It often looks too "matching" not really lively. I like the Sweetwater collection too, its a fresh Christmas design

    They're great to have on hand when you want the quick feeling of finishing something, or need to whip up a gift. I also like charm packs to see a line of fabric in person and decide which of the prints I'd like to have more of.

    I have not yet worked with pre-cuts although I won a charm pack earlier this year. It is in my stash waiting for the "right quilt" to come along!
