How many of you have ventured into the delicious world of pre-cut quilting fabric? Pre-cuts carry yummy sounding names like jellyroll, layercake, turnovers, dessert rolls and charms. These names are actually copyrights of the Moda company. Just as I refer to all tissues as Kleenex and all gelatin as Jello, I will continue to refer to pre-cuts by Moda's creative names. Since I use primarily Moda fabrics I hope they will forgive me.
I resisted the pre-cut movement for a while, thinking they were far too costly. Once I tried one I was hooked and I haven't looked back! What can you say about taking one colorful jellyroll and one hour later having a nice quilt top to show for your efforts! Here is the first Jellyroll Race quilt I made. It took me 45 minutes.
I don't use pre-cuts exclusively, but they are a wonderful way to try a designer's full line of fabric. I used 5" charm squares to make a Disappearing Nine Patch (D9P) quilt. I added some unrelated fabric for borders and into a few of the blocks.
The flag banner was made from jellyroll strips with white stars appliqued in the blue field.
If you haven't tried pre-cuts give yourself a treat and see if you can't turn back!!
May you have a day filled with Peace & Plenty.
