    The pinked edges are a royal pain. I would rather cut my own , as well as save the extra money. For what you save, you can almost get a whole other layer cake.

    Use a larger rotary cutter it will cut multiple layers easier.

    I have used 108 backing for cutting my own precuts. You get 3 yards of fabric per one yard. I find it more cost effective and is worth the extra effort.

    I have cut my own precuts using 108" fabric. I even cut 2&1/2" squares from 108" fabric as well as other precuts. Why did I do that? I really liked the fabric for what I was making and got a lot of squares in no time or effort and hardly made a dent in my yardage. I have been very happy with the results and will continue to use the wider length if the fabric fits the cause. Just make sure you square it up correctly.
