Pre-Cuts For You

We have been bringing out a good assortment of pre-cuts to the store shelves, and you might want to get some of these while they last.  We do have bolts of some of the groups already, with more expected to arrive.  It's always a dilemma for all of us when we get the Moda pre-cuts because they are sent to us well ahead of the coordinating bolts.  That leaves you wondering if you will have any good-sized yardage to pull together a total project with that jelly roll or charm pack.  The best plan is to buy the squares and rolls when they are available and pick up some yardage later.  By then you will have maybe decided which pattern you want to use and will actually know how many yards to purchase!
The Boo Crew by Sweetwater--excellent small scale Halloween designs!

Happy-Go-Lucky by Bonnie and Camille, flowers with great coordinates.

Aspen Frost by Basic Grey--love their color tones!

Holiday in the Pines by Holly Taylor, building upon the classic woodsy designs we love.
In From the Cold by Kate Spain is Christmas without being Santa and reindeer.

Snowman Gatherings by Primitive Gatherings, classic small prints and blenders.
Those little bitsy 2 1/2" square packs that you see right above are perfect for making these English paper pieced tumblers--

If you haven't tried it or are not even sure what English paper piecing is all about, we would be happy to help you.  Watch for a fall class that will give you hands-on learning for this fun technique.

If you want to see more of the contents of the pre-cut fabric packs, look at the Moda website for details.
