Thread: I HATE/Do NOT Buy Precuts and I am #### Years old

    So this is an experiment to find out if the love of precuts is a generational thing. Please do not use this as a place to bash precuts, or tell us anything more than just your age. Thanks!

    IF YOU DO NOT LIKE THEM/DO NOT BUY THEM, post in this thread.

    Please do not use this as a place to bash precuts, or tell us anything more than just your age. Thanks!

    Also, interesting to note would be how "new" you are to quilting, so if you would like to share, say how many years you have been sewing.

    EXAMPLE - 44, 6 years sewing

    Example - 89, 50 years sewing

    Example - 37, 20 years sewing

    Hmmm, I have been quilting for almost a year. I experiment with pre-cuts and receive many as gifts. Some were not happy experiences. Often I want some coordinating yardage to complete a piece.

    I am 43, have been quilting for six years and don't care for pre-cuts. I now have to pre-wash fabric and that doesn't work well with pre-cuts.

    I don't do pre-cuts. (unless they were gifted to me) I prefer yardage.
    I have been quilting about 12 years and am 50 years old

    I have been quilting for 10 years. I only like the 5" charm squares but would rather cut my own yardage.
    Probably wont buy them for much longer.

    I'm 51, quilting about 8 years, and a scrap quilter so I've just come to love pre-cuts (after years of collecting remnants). I worry about mixing remnants, washed, with pre-cuts, unwashed.

    I prefer yardage. I do use FQ's, which are pre-cuts in a way, but you have more freedom with them.

    I'm 26 and started quilting 4.5mos ago.

    Hi all, I have been quilting for 1 year, previously a painter.
    I like the precuts, just need some ideas as to what to do with them. I mostly use yardage and I am 80 yrs. old

    I don't buy precuts other than FQ's.I feel they are very limiting in what one can do with them, and yes there are now alot of patterns out there to use. Personally don't care for the pinked edges. I also prewash my fabrics--have had too many fabrics bleed after sewing.

    I have been sewing for almost 50 years; made my first quilt for my now 38 year old daughter when she was about 3.

    LMAO, Obviously, this experiment has failed, because nobody can read the directions......

    The purpose, was just to have a list of "ages" in the "like" thread, and then a second list of ages in the "don't like" thread. But since people are posting everything else, and not even posting their ages, it is not going to work.
