    Charms with no pinked edges?

    I'm trying to find some charm packs of solids (mostly need white), and I can find Moda and Kona, but they have pinked edges and I really don't like those.

    Any suggestions for a quality solid with regular edges?

    Thanks!

    People cut up solid charm packs and sell them on eBay. I buy mine from eBay. Very inexpensive. No pinking. Watch for how many pieces are in a pack...some only have 20. Lots have 40-44. They also sell hand cut precuts of all sorts at great bargains! Like jelly rolls, 2 1/2 charms, layer cakes, turnovers, etc.

    They sell a pack of Moda Bella solids here with straight edges, but there is no white.
    Perhaps a pack of solid colors and finding solid white by the yard for what you need...

    I see that they also have white on white layer cakes.
    Looks like all of their fabric is straight cuts no pinking.

    I love www.jordanfabrics.com! Their pre-cuts are done in their shop and have no pinked edges.

    This was going to be my suggestion, although I've never bought precuts. I just see what they have on Donna Jordan's Utube videos.

    I haven't bought the precuts before, but when I order fabric on-line I usually start out at equilter. They have several pages of things, the pictures don't show any pinking, here's the blender link.

    I find them very fast and reliable and their prices even with shipping are better than my local shops. They are strict on their cutting -- when you order 1 yard that is EXACTLY what you get, not a quarter inch more. I did order one of their "scrap packs", those are the bolt ends, often ragged/sloped but was exactly what I needed for one of my quilts -- it was really fun to go through the package when it came.

    Edit: On 2nd look and with my screen images larger, it looks like most are pinked sorry about that but maybe check out those scrap packs to cut down.

    I'm going to have to spend more time on the jordan fabrics website. I really like what I just saw.

    I must be the odd duck because I hate the precuts without the pinked edges. I just don't like the way it frays, I was watching Jenny's tutorial on Friday and when she unrolled the jelly roll with all those frayed edges I cringed. The pinked edges don't fray I love em.

    I don't think this is accurate. I thought the same thing when I first read this question. I went to their site and looked through their posted precuts. Their pre-cuts appear to be the same commercial ones that everyone else sells.

    From their videos, I got the impression they made their own pre-cuts. It appears I was mistaken. I think they do their pre-cuts only for their quilt kits.
