Moda offers a great selection of precuts for every collection, from bundles of fat quarters to mini Charm Packs—and the most popular sizes are precut Layer Cakes and Jelly Rolls. Jelly Rolls are made up of 2 ½ inch strips cut across the full width of the fabric, and layer cakes are made up of 10 inch squares. Trendtex also exclusively distributes Maple Rolls and Maple Cakes across Canada, which are created from other manufacturers’ fabric collections. Whether it’s a Moda or a Trendtex product, you’ll find 40 beautiful designs per pack.
Sewing Suggestions for Precut Layer Cakes and Jelly Rolls
Some quilters like to keep their bundles on a shelf to admire, but for those looking to sew, the possibilities are endless, depending on the precut you choose. There are plenty of patterns out there designed with precuts in mind, so look out for patterns that say things like “Jelly Roll Friendly” in the description. If you have Charm Packs (packages of 5-inch squares) you may need a few bundles to make a quilt, while smaller projects like tote bags or placemats would likely just require one. Quilt projects may also require you to have yardage of background fabric in addition to your precut, so make sure to always check the instructions to ensure that you have enough fabric.
