I’ve been trying to think of the best way to utilise the lovely fabrics that I bought to make my daughter’s quilt and, during my internet meanderings, I have discovered that there is now a veritable ‘menu’ of pre-cut fabrics to choose from.
I love the names and the way they are presented. Moda even has a ‘Candy Bar’ pack which comes wrapped like a bar of chocolate. Yum!
Here is a guide for those of you who, like me, haven’t made a quilt since there were only fat quarters and charm packs.
A Layer Cake contains 40 or 42 10″ squares.
A Candy Bar contains four pacs of 40 2 1/2″ x 5″ strips of each fabric included in the fabric lines.
A Charm Pack contains at least one 5″ square of each fabric included in that fabric line.
Turnovers contains 80 triangles (40 squares). Join 2 triangles to make a 5″ half square triangle block.
A Jelly Roll contains 40 strips, 2 1/2″ x width of fabric.
A Honey Bun contains 40 strips, 1 1/2″ x width of fabric.
A Jelly Cake contains one Layer Cake AND one Jelly Roll!
A Charming Jelly Cake contains one Layer Cake, one Jelly Roll & one Charm Pack! A Dessert Roll contains 10 precut 5″ x WOF strips
What hope is there now for those of us who already have a fabric addiction? These people really know how to push our buttons. Have they no pity?
