Pre-Cuts:  Do you look at pre-cuts and wonder what exactly is in each pack.  Pre-cuts are a collection of fabric that have been previously cut by machine, stacked into piles, or rolled up, and tied
together.  Pre-cut bundles provide an inexpensive way to obtain a sampling of each fabric in a collection or line.  There is at lease one piece of each print included, sometimes two, so that means that you will have full coordinated set of fabric that is ready to be sewn into a quilt.  
Here are a few of the most common pre-cuts available and some are available in the shop:
Fat Quarter Bundle:  Approx. 18 in by 22 in, a quarter yd of fabric cut into a rectangle,
                               4 fat quarters equivalent to 1 yd fabric.
Fat Eighth Bundle:    Approx. 9 in by 22 in, eighth yd of fabric cut into a rectangle, 8 fat eights                                             equivalent to 1 yd fabric.
Jelly roll:        2 1/2 in by 44 in, cut into long strips, usually 40 fabrics per roll, equivalent to approx.
                        2 3/4 yds fabric.
Honey Bun:    1 1/5 in by 44, cut into long strips, usually 40 fabrics per roll, similar to Jelly Roll but 
                        thinner strips, equivalent to approx. 1 2/3 yds fabric.
Charm Pk:      5 in by 5 in, pre-cut squares, usually 40-42 fabrics per pack, equivalent to approx. 1/2                            yd fabric.
Mini Charm Pk:  2 1/2 in by 2 1/2 in, pre-cut squares, usually 40-42 fabric per pack, equivalent to                                approx. 1/4 yd fabric.
Layer Cake:     10 in by 10 in, pre-cut squares, usually 40-42 fabrics per pack, equivalent to
                         approx. 2 3/4 yd fabric.
Twice the Charm:  5 1/2 by 22 in, pre-cut rectangles, usually 15 fabrics per pack, equivalent to                                     approx. 1 yard fabric.
