Precuts! What are they? And why you might want to try them out.
Whether you are new to quilting or have been making quilts for a long time, starting a new project can be daunting. There are so many choices to make when deciding on a new quilt project. The fabrics, patterns, sizes, batting and more. Precuts can help take away some of the overwhelm.
So you might be asking, what is a precut? These are pre packaged fabrics, cut to a specific size which typically contain one print of every fabric in a collection. Duplicates of the more popular fabrics are usually included in these bundles. All the patterns in a precut work together perfectly as they all come from the same fabric collection, taking away any decision fatigue.
Precuts an save you time. You do not have to cut all your fabrics to size, saving hours for a project.
There are many different sizes and names for precuts. You may find different names for the same item, based on the vendor. For example, Riley Blake Designs name their 2.5” strips Rollie Pollies whereas Benartex call these Strip-pies.
