It’s so much fun to work with pre-cut fabric!
If you haven’t tried it yet, and you like to sew, I encourage you to try these colorful, beautiful, pre-cut bundles.
They come in endless varieties of color combinations and different sizes of cuts…
… i.e. Charm Packs (5″X5″ squares),
Layer Cakes (10″X10″),
Fat Quarters (18″X21″),
and other variations of these.
This particular one is called a jelly roll.
I know. They all have fun names.
Jelly rolls usually come in rolls of 24 strips measuring 2 1/2″ X 44″. This particular one had 20 strips.
You can see the nice bright colors.
When you open up the jelly roll, you usually find 2 strips of each fabric.
The great thing is that they are all coordinated for you and precut!
This saves a lot of time, trying to match fabrics and find a variety that will go together,
not to mention all that cutting!
I wanted to make a Queen-size quilt, so I added some more fabrics from my stash that I thought worked well with the jelly roll.
I’ll use these for more strips, borders, and binding.
They balance the brightness of the jelly roll fabrics.
I cut some white fabric into same size strips as the jelly roll and sewed 3 strips together…
Some with the white center and prints on the top and bottom… some with the print center and 2 whites.
This goes pretty fast and soon I had a stack.
It was so much fun working with these bright, colorful fabrics!
The white makes the prints look great!
I then cut those strips into 2 1/2″ strips…
This is what they look like when I put all the little stacks together.
Now, all I have to do is sew them together to make a Postage Stamp Quilt. I will be working on this in the days to come…
I’ll post on the finished top as soon as I finish it. 🙂
If you’re interested in these precut fabrics, you can get them in many different places now.
Here are just a few of my favorites:
Great store! I always use a coupon when I go. If you have their phone app you don’t have to worry about cutting newspaper coupons!
The selection at the store is so much better than online!
Limited selection but you can get a significant discount if you use a coupon. (They also have a phone app available) I recommend you buy at the store since they don’t have much available online.
There are many other sites but these are the ones I have found to be the most economical… and of course, that’s important to us, isn’t it?!
