    I've never had a problem with my Moda precuts. I ususally don't buy them, but my friends and family see them as a great gift for me, so I am more than happy to use them.

    I have never used precuts. I am an accurate cutter and I get so aggravated when I look at fabric to buy and it is all cut in to various squares, strips, etc.
    What' s wrong with good ol' yardage?
    It's hard to find sometimes---just look at Keepsake quilting catalog, Nancy"s Notions etc. They all sell those darn precuts.

    Thanks for listening!!!

    I buy pre cuts, all sizes. They save time and I count my time as part of the cost when I quilt, so pre cuts are cheaper then buying yardage and then washing it, ironing it, cutting it.

    I got the charms pack via internet and I didnt know until you mentioned that about the top fabric. However that didnt happen with the pack I got. I looked at my top fabric and there is no turquoise or black in it. So Im not sure it works with all of the packs.

    I usually by my charm packs at the LQS because I can actually thumb through the entire pack. I use them to make bags and have made a quilt for the couch with a kit that has charm packs and jelly rolls. Again these were from a LQS.

    The ones you get from ebay may just be a bunch of fabrics that someone has cut into squares.

    i hate precuts. i prefer to choose my own fabric and fabric combinations for me that's an important part of the artistic process.

    i bought them when my niece first started sewing but now that's she 8yo i have her putting together colors and learning color theory.
