Precuts: What can they make?

Precuts: What can they make?

So I’ve gotten a couple a questions about what size quilt each precut can make, and it is a very good question. Every time I start to make a quilt, it always takes me longer to figure out how much fabric I need to make a certain size than it does to actually sew it together!!

All of the sizes given below do not include borders, simply what each precut can make. By adding borders you can make your quilt bigger. Also depending on the pattern used, the end size can change, but that’s when borders come in handy, in my experience.

Daydreams-Mini-Charm-Pack-by-Kate-Spain-for-Moda-Fabrics-SKU#-27170MCMini charms, aka candies, are the newest addition to the quilting world. They are 42 pieces at 2.5 in square.

A quilt made from a fat quarter bundle all depends on the size of the bundle. One bundle can make anything from a full size quilt to a king size quilt. A fat quarter bundle is 18 x 22″ cut of fabric which equals a quarter yard.Oh-The-Places-You'll-Go---Rainbow-Girl-Colorstory-Fat-Quarter-Bundle-by-Robert-Kaufman-Fabrics-SKU#-FQ-624-10

I’m also including the finished sizes of quilts or bedspreads. Each size should be taken with grain of salt:

Baby = 36′” x 54″

Crib = 45″ x 60″

Twin = 63″ x 87″

Double = 78″ x 87″

Queen= 84″ x 92″

King = 100″ x 92″

I hope this helps in your next shopping adventure,

    This is terrific information! What other precuts are there? You didn’t mention Dessert Rolls, Turnovers nor Fat Eighths.

    Hi, I have posted this question on Moda’s blog but never got an answer so I am hoping MSQC will fill the void. I was recently starting a new quilt project and it called for 2 1/2″ strips. The pattern was designed well before pre-cut hit the scene but the first thing that came to mind was using pre-cuts. I needed to know how much yardage is in a layer cake, jelly roll, etc. I eventually sat down and did the math but I couldn’t find a handy dandy chart listing this anywhere! I would love to see such a chart made available. So what do you say, you all up for the challenge of providing the quilting world with this tool?

  • Vipérine Doc

    Not in chart form, but here is yardage info: http://www.quiltwithmo.com/fabric-terms.htm

    Hi LA, there are lots more, but these are the ones we carry in the shop and seem to be the most readily available at the shops we work with.

  • Gina

    Hot Dang!!! Doing the happy dance. Thanks Jen!

  • mortonkarena

    Thanks, Jenny! Especially for the sizes of quilts for beds. I can never remember how many more blocks I need when enlarging a pattern. I realize that these are approximations, and that pattern sizes vary, but it gives a general idea for buying and cutting fabrics.

    Hi, I think I ordered the wrong thread fro MSQC. I have ordered 4 spools of the cotton quilting thread, but it’s the one that says it’s got a coating to make it easier to go through material. Does that mean it is for hand quilting and would ruin my machine if I used it? It’s the Gutermann and says it’s quilting-200m-220 yds. 100% cotton on the spool. Thanks.

    Hi Sheila,

    Sorry for the late response. This thread will not ruin your machine. It’s designed to use on all types of machine, or for hand quilting if that is your preference. We’ve sold tens of thousands of spools and have only had happy customers.

    Let me know if I can help with anything else!

    Have a great day!

    Thanks for this post, I’m quilting in isolation, no shops or quilters in my area. I’ve been wanting to try pre-cuts but was unsure. I’m also worried about getting an accurate seam with the pinked edges of a charm pack. Any hints would be appreciated.

  • Kim P

    OMG! As a beginner this is gonna be a lifesaver for me. Thank you!

  • Sandra Derry

    Thanks I always have a hard time with the sizes. This really helps.

  • Judy Carlson

    what—-special thread to quilt with, better watch more tutorials,

  • Julie Whitehead Wilkins

    Three rolls is what I had estimated for a king size bed quilt. I’m using 2 Little ruby and 1 white jelly roll. First quilt.
