Precuts are pieces of fabric that have been cut to a specific size. This helps the quilter be able to get to the sewing process sooner.  Precuts come in many different sizes and it seems each fabric company has chosen a different name to call them.  Precuts come in 2-1/2” squares, 5” squares, 2-1/2” strip sets, 10” squares and panels to name a few.  One of the benefits to precuts is that you can get a variety of different colors, textures and designs in one grouping.

A fabric panel is a single piece of fabric which is sold individually and not be the yard. They typically feature a large single motif or multiple motifs.   Panels can be used in quilts as well as cutting up the individual motifs for placemats, pillows, potholders, etc.  Panels that have a baby theme can be used to make a quick baby quilt by just adding a couple of borders on them to fit a crib.  Panel sizes range from 23” x 44” to 44” x 44”.

Typically, fabric is 42” wide
