  1. My favorite is a Jolly Bar. A Jolly Bar is a 10×5 pice of every piece of fabric in a fabric line and allows for lots of creativity. It is unique to Fat Quarter Shop and perfect for our Sew Sampler surprise box. Hint,hint! Add plus are the free pattern that comes with it.

  2. I almost always purchase fat quarter bundles. Fat quarters can be used for most any project. So, fat quarters are my favorites.

  3. I love a fat quarter bundle – it is my favorite precut, so I’m looking forward to the September box. There are some new fabric lines releasing this month – I’d love Sincerely Yours by Sherri and Chelsi!

  4. I’m reasonably new to quilting but I love fat quarters! Layer cakes and charm packs are pretty awesome too. 😊

  5. I love any and all pre-cuts. But, with being a mini quilter and loving EPP I usually buy mini charm packs, charm packs, and jelly rolls. I just bought Notting Hill by Amy Smart.
    Can’t wait for the September Sew Sampler box!!!

  6. I love layer cakes!!! Usually with layer cakes you get to sample all of a new collection…I also love fat quarters and charm packs…all fabric!!! 🙂

  7. I think my favorite might just be fat quarters because that is what I have used most over the past couple years. I’m still new to quilting and still consider myself a novice. Whatever is coming in September, I’m sure will be amazingly beautiful.

  8. I love Jolly Bars! Especially since you also get a free pattern with them!
    Any ideas on the fabric? Maybe Blue Stitch??

  9. I’m an oddball whose favorite precut is a honey bun. I love Moda Scrap Bags; although, they are not technically a precut,

  10. Hmmm…yes, fat quarters are my favorite. I love to look at layer cakes and charm packs, but I think I tend to use the fat quarters more readily in my quilting.

  11. I love Fat Quarters! Even if you don’t want to make the enclosed project, fat quarters translate to other projects easil.

  12. Understand the delays, totally out of your hands, and absolutely worth the wait. Sew excited every month for my little blue box.
    While I love fat quarter bundles my favorite pre-cut is a layer cake. Very versatile, 2 1/2” strips, 4 charm packs and endless possibilities.
    Thank you FQS for all you do for the quilting world and to keep us inspired.

  13. Layer cakes are my favorite because they’re easier on the wallet. If it’s fabric I cannot live without then I will get a fat quarter bundle.

  14. Fat quarters are my favorite for versatility and quantity of fabric. There is SO much you can do with them. My second favorite is layer cakes.

  15. I’m very partial to a jellyroll, they look gorgeous on my bookcase and I even occasionally open them to make a quilt! 🤪

  16. I love layer cakes and fat quarter bundles. Both sizes offer enough material to actually do something with and I see all my scrapes to use when I machine embroidery in the hoop designs.

  17. Fat quarters, Jelly Rolls and Layer Cake are the most abundant in my studio but I also like Half Yard bundles and charm packs. The only ones I have not purchased are the Jolly Bar and Honey Bun.

  18. Choosing a precursor favorite is like being in a candy store or bakery! Maybe one of each with a slight preference for a layer cake!

  19. I love fat quarters however my typical purchase is the layer cake. Layer cake gives me a good bit of a collection to make a nice size quilt. If budget weren’t an issue- I would definitely purchase fat quarters more often. However – I must behave and I save the fat quarters bundles for my top choice designers and my absolutely adore fabric collections. 💕. Almost always purchase fat quarter bundles of Corey Yoder’s fabric collections.

  20. Fat Quarters are so nice to have but those bundles don’t always fit in my budget and since I love variety and having the entire collection – Charm packs are my budgetary friend and if I’m really loving on the collection I get a Layer Cake for more quilt options.

  21. My first fabric precuts were Jelly Rolls, used them for many Jelly Roll Race Quilts. Then I started using Layer Cakes, which are now my very favorite!

  22. My favorite precut is the Fat Quarter Bundle! Especially when there are 36-42 fat quarters. I’ve recently discovered the Fat Eighth bundle for smaller (holiday) projects. Or when my purse strings need tightening. I’ve only discovered this wonderful precut stack and the FQS because of quilt alongs with Pat Sloan.

  23. My favorite cut is The Jolly Bar … just the perfect size for something nice and quick. BUT I am overjoyed with Fat Quarter Bundles too. Happy dance!

  24. Fat quarter bundles can be used for many creative items. Just enough fabric to get a gift made quickly. I’ve made many bags with fat quarter bundles

  25. Sorry I forgot to add I love fat quarters. It lets you have more variety in the choice or projects you can sew.

  26. My favorite was Layer Cakes but has receintly changed to fat quarters while doing several quilt alongs which I loved.

  27. My favorite precut is fat quarters. You can do so much with them. Although I enjoy all the ideas I see for other precuts. Such imagination!

  28. I’m still old fashion, I like to generally buy my fabric by the yard. Just in case of mistakes in cutting or if the grain is really off. I now prefer to purchase from a reputable shop and the Fat Quarter Shop is my FAVORITE to shop at! Thank you for so many wonderful quilting and cross stitch projects!
