I Love Pre-Cuts

This little ditty is my latest flimsy.  It measures about 12"x14" and it is made from a mini charm pack of Avalon from Fig Tree.  I'll finish it with batting, backing and I may even try my hand at a little free motion quilting.  The reason I love pre-cuts is that they allow you to create your own little masterpiece that becomes all color coordinated without any fuss.  Pre-cuts come in various sizes - from layer cakes of 10" blocks to mini charms that are 2 1/2" square.  All from the same line of fabric, all color coordinated! So,  for those of us that are color illiterate, with pre-cuts,  we can look like masters when we put together our quilts and wall hangings. 
See you again soon.


  1. I can see another finish coming up really soon Laurie. Great work, I love it.

  2. Lovely quilt top. I so agree about how good the fabric ranges are. Especially when you order online and can't see colours in the flesh it is reassuring to order a fabric line and know that all,the colours will be coordinated. I bought a layer cake and a jelly roll of Avalon. I am using it to make my holiday lap quilt and my sewing set for the Country cottage quilting SAL. I hope the jelly roll will work in my Nanna's Farm quilt. This is my first experience with precuts. I really like what you have done with the mini charm pack. The design with the solid colour with the Avalon prints looks great.

  3. Love the pretty top! Those geese are a fly'n!

  4. Very nice and the fabrics are wonderful.

    How is your hubby doing?
