    precut kits.

    I got a link in my email. I think it was from a computer shop hop.
    I went and found a place that cuts your material when you buy the PRECUT kit.
    How I wish our BOM that I attend did this.

    JUST WENT BACK NOT ALL KITS ARE PRECUT!!!!!

    Here is the link for having a take five cut, but you can also buy the kit with fabric already picked out.

    Does anyone know of any other shops that do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Mistakes are just opportunities to invent a new quilting technique!

    I personally don't like kits that are pre cut. Every time I have bought a kit with precut pieces I have problems. Seems like the pieces aren't cut as precise as I want them to be and it is generally on the small side.

    I have to agree with Jannie. And I have yet to make a quilt from a kit that I haven't had to buy more fabric for--and no! not from cutting errors.

    I bought one with a adorable panel from Keepsake (of all places) and the backing was 6" too short! They offered to let me return the kit. At that point I had it made, but they didn't offer to send me more fabric for the backing. Grrrrr.

    Be careful with kits.

    I have always said there is a cottage industry opportunity for someone who would cut out the quilt pieces. (That will never be me) With an investment into one of the acqu cutting tools I really belive that this idea would be well received on a local basis in most any area.

    Kits

    Many quilt shops will "kit" fabric for you, at least they will around here. I personally have been happy with kits. I get smaller ones like table toppers. I always like the fabrics they choose.
    I don't know if there is a surcharge for making the kits.

    Just ask
