I just love the look of all the pre cut fabric bundles that are so popular in the shops at the moment! It is a step on from buying the co-ordinated fat quaters or eigths. The 10″ squares or ‘Layer Cakes’ are taking my fancy today, but the one I brought I am loathe to cut up incase the quilt idea does not work out as I think. So I am cutting my own 10″ squares to play with, and that is a really good feeling!
I have searched through my pinks and come up with quite a collection. Any scraps have gone in my ‘Strings’ bag, and each fabric had a 2 1/2″ slice taken off too, and that has gone in the ’2 1/2″ Strip Bag’. So what with the couple of 10″ squares I was cutting too, I now have a bit more room in the pinks tub, and for a brief moment I forget that actually I have just redistributed the fabric into different areas! And not yet moved on to sewiing with it!
But I feel we are moving in the right direction, from stash to pre cuts, and perhaps tomarrow, the quilt!
Have a look here for a few basic pointers as to how these pre cuts will get you stitching quicker!
