Make the Most of our Newest Pre-Cuts!

Are you a fan of pre-cut fabric bundles? From fat quarters to 5 x 5's and 10x10's to narrow strips, pre-cuts not only save time, but they're an easy and economical way to expand your stash, sample a favorite collection, and jumpstart your own creativity! We've gathered some tips from Sarah Maxwell of Designs by Sarah J to help you maximize your pre-cut projects:

  1. DO NOT wash your pre-cut squares. If you are concerned about your finished quilt, Sarah recommends using a Shout Color Catcher or similar dye magnet in the washing machine on the first wash.
  2. Marcus pre-cuts are finished with a "micro" pinked edge. DO NOT trim the edges off -- this could result in a fabric shortage! Measure from the outer points of the pinked edges, construct your pieced units, and then trim to the desired size if needed.
  3. When aligning your fabrics for sub-cutting or sewing, use the outer points of the pinked edges as the edge of the fabric so that your 1/4" seam allowances will be uniform and accurate.
  4. Put 2" strip remnants to good use by joining them to create a scrappy binding
