Quilters love time-saving precuts such as fat quarters, strips and squares, large and small. Not only do they simplify the cutting process, they give the quilter an instant assortment of prints and colors to make a project sensational.
Of all precuts, fat quarters are a staple of the stashes of many quilters. Fat quarters look sweet all tied up in a bundle, and are an easy way to achieve a scrappy look. The 18”x 22” shape of a fat quarter allows for cutting larger pieces than the skinny strip of a ¼ yard cut. The chapter on Fat Quarters contains eight striking projects that range from simple fabric-wrapped wall plaques to easy and more ambitious throws and bed quilts.
Simple precut squares also give you a taste of each of a fabric of an entire collection. They yield spectacular results whether you start with 5” charm squares or the larger 10” pieces. Seven impressive projects that begin squares include a mini make-do table topper (for all you make-do quilters of the Prairie Women’s Sewing Circle), a flying geese pieced and appliqued flower bed quilt,and a raw edge x-block quilt.
