    What size/type of pre-cuts do you usually buy?

    The Deal of the Day at Missouri Star Quilt Company today is a set of turnovers. They're really pretty (spring-y) & I'll probably buy them. I've never bought turnovers before. I've bought fat quarter bundles, layer cakes, jelly rolls & charm packs, but never turnovers (or honey buns or any other configuration). It made me get to thinking... what size/type pre-cuts do other people buy? And why do they buy what they do. Care to share? Inquiring minds...

    I love jelly rolls. I have made at least three quilts using them and will make many more.

    I buy fat quarters, 5" charms and an occasional jelly roll. I like the 5" charms because I can whip a project pretty quick with them. I buy fat quarters because: A. I love different fabrics B. I can have a large variety of prints in my stash and C. They are just the right size for small projects. I have never even considered the turnovers, mainly because I don't see them in the LQS very often. I'm fussy about anything with a bias edge so I try to avoid them! I suppose that the honey buns would work just like "home made" HST, just starch the heck out of them before handling and sewing them

    I usually do the Fat Quarter bundles, Fat Eights are my favorite but harder to find and Jelly rolls. There are so many patterns and books for the Jelly rolls so I always know I can find something to do with them

    I love jelly rolls, too. Do you have a favorite pattern to use with them?

    I don't buy precuts. I would rather buy yardage. I bought one quilt kit and will not do that again. I hated two of the fabrics that were in the kit and had to replace them.

    I buy layer cakes and jelly rolls - I find this size for me is the most useful.

    I buy 5" charms, jelly rolls, and fat qtr sets. i've bought a couple of themed layer cakes - landscape fabrics. I do small projects and art type stuff so I like the variety. I buy yardage of solids and blenders and a few prints to use as backings.

    I only buy the fat quarter bundles and then only if it's a type of fabric I'm collecting for a project. I have somehow acquired some charm squares but still haven't figured out what to do with them.
