    Question Question about on line quilt shops

    Like most of you, I've purchased a lot of fabric on line but I usually get jelly rolls, fat quarters or a yard or more at a time. Do any of the shops cut LESS than a yard for you? I'd like to purchase 1/2 or 1/4 yard cuts as well. Thanks.

    I would think that each website would give guidance as to what the minimum cuts would be. Guess I haven't tried itC!

    I think Quilted Threads will cut less than a yard. The web site of the shop should say how small they will cut.

    Thanks, Ladies. I'm hoping for the names of websites that will cut less than a yard. For instance, I just checked Missouri Star Quilts and there is no option for less than a yard and Quilted Threads will cut a minimum of a yard + an additional 1/8th, 1/4 etc.

    fabric.com does 1/2 yards and you can return if you don't like the fabric.

    Favorite fabrics will cut 1/2 yard. Used to be 1/4 but I think that changed.

    Keepsake Quilting cuts no smaller than a half yard for online and catalog sales. They do cut smaller at the shop (same for Quilted Threads).

    Have you tried Hancock's of Paducah? I don't know what their minimum is, but it might be worth a try...

    We do....our website is listed by the half-yard, but if you want 1/4 yard or less, feel free to call the shop, and we can cut whatever size you want and do the order over the phone.

    Each site has various minimun cuts, you'll have to check each site you're interested in. I like ConnectingThreads but Keepsake Quilting is a nice one too.

    I was on aUS site yesterday that offered to cut 1/4 yard as well as other lengths. I usually ask for 2 fat quarters when this option not there, so far always had one piece.

    Be careful to check prices, because some are quoting the fabric by the 1/2 yard and not by the yard.
