If you know me, I do not do a lot of projects from others when it comes to quilting. I mostly do my own thing and create a quilt specifically for the person who will be receiving it. I am a self-taught hand-quilter of 12 years now. In recent months I have started learning to machine quilt.
Being a shop owner, I not only try to keep up with what's new in the quilting world, but also what's new with designers. There are so many fantastic quilts out there. So many of them I do want to make. So very little time to fit them all in. At least not all at once.
I think it's safe to say that we love pre cuts! I bought my first pre cut 2 years ago. It was a charm pack. At first I didn't really get the appeal of pre cuts. Now I do. They certainly save on time and cutting for a quick project. While my collection of pre cuts has slowly been growing, I still have only used charm packs. Up until I saw this quilt: Picnic by Kimberly Brackett from her book Scrap-Basket Sensations
