Notify-meWish-list

Beautifully quick quilts are in your reach—and one precut bundle of fabric is all you need to make any of them! The author of the popular book Quilts from Sweet Jane returns to take you on a fast-and-fun trip through your precut stash. Once you reach your destination—your favorite pattern—you’ll be ready to unpack a fat quarter, Jelly Roll, or Layer Cake bundle and begin! Skip agonizing over fabric choices, and don’t worry about extra yardage for backgrounds or borders. NO additional fabric is required for these quilt tops. Zero-zip-zilch. So grab a pack of precuts and get sewing!
