Default Precuts issues

I hate it when precuts are not the size they are supposed to be, or the edges are not straight. Does anyone else have this problem

I can't say that I have. Who have you bought precuts from?

One more reason that I don't buy pre-cuts.

This is one of the main reasons I don't buy precuts. Thanks but no thanks, I'll pick my own fabric and cut my own sizes.

I was given a John Flynn laser cut kit by a friend. A drunkard's path sorta thing. Only each curve was clipped. I love doing curves and never clip!

Even when making clothes I make the notches go out and not into the seam line.

I have heard that some companies will replace them if they are not cut to the right size or cut on a slight bias.

There have been many many discussions on the board about this topic. So I'd say yes, you are not alone!

No. I learned how to deal with my own wonkiness when I first started quilting. I learned how to make it come out straight on top and leave the imperfections on the inside.
