    Default What and how are the Pre-Cuts used?

    I am a new member, have never been to a quilt store and don't know a thing about pre-cuts except a bit about fat quarters and the jelly rolls strips.

    How many and what combos would I need for a double sized quilt?

    Please help.

    First of all, welcome to the forums. The pattern you use will make a difference in how much fabric you will need. If you watch some of Jenny's tutorials she will tell you how many charm packs or fat quarters or layer cakes you will need to make the size of quilt you want. And others here will be able to answer your questions.

    You will have a lot of fun making your quilt. I have really enjoyed piecing quilt tops. I'm on my fifth or sixth one now. I have several to send to the long-arm quilter. Don't ever hesitate to ask questions, it usually helps if you can take a picture of the area you are asking about.

    Let us know how it is going and post pics so we can see your work.

    Welcome from Colorado! I had to look back through the blog to find what I was looking for. Sorry, I don't know how to do the link, but the date was March 18, 2014. It's called: "Pre-Cut Standardization". It tells the sizes of the various pre-cuts & what they'll make. Listed are mini-charms, charms, layer cakes, jelly rolls, honey buns, & FQ bundles. It gives the dimensions of quilt sizes for baby, crib, twin, double, queen, & king. There's a lot of helpful info. in the blog postings. You can learn about the history of M*QC, the progress of the business, etc. Enjoy the Forum & the Blog. JCY

    Hey Susan, and Welcome to the Forum! Precuts are great! Though I do find nirvana in cutting my own material as well. Most of Jenny's tutorials have a list of what is needed. I asked a question not to long ago regarding if I had enough material, Lisa was kind enough to mention the Robert Kaufmann app, use it on my iPad. It's been of great help to me, you might want to download that, it's free. Also I believe Karen has made a complete list of the tutorials here for easy use, but also has varying information on sizes of quilts, etc. I'm echoing Marilyn's comment above. You'll find this a wonderful place, with lots of help and information. Glad you found us! Enjoy!

    If I were you... I'd go into the Tutorials and start watching them... that's the best way to get to know the precuts and how they are used. Jenny has so many videos that lead you through from beginner to seasoned pro. It would be so much easier to do that, then for anyone to try to explain it for you here.

    You can go to the Blue bar at the top and click on Quilt Tutorials, and off you go! Enjoy.

    Welcome to this great place for all of us fabrics addicted quilters! ;-)


    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    Hello and welcome to the forum from Massachusetts.
    I agree with everyone else start at the very beginning or tutorial #1 and continue.If you look in Jenny's shop or store you can find patterns listed for each precut size.
