Recommended Courses for Sewing with Pre-Cuts

In my recent reader survey several of you told me that you would like help coming up with ideas for things to sew with your collection of pre-cuts. I am currently working on some fun patterns for you. Pattern writing is a long process because, of course, potential buyers would like to see the finished quilt before deciding on the pattern. While I am working on my quilts I would like to suggest some other quilter's courses that I have bought from Craftsy. These are all classes that I have purchased (I did not receive them for free) and I feel confident recommending them to you as an excellent source of patterns, techniques and ideas for projects to make using your pre-cuts.

There is "Smarter Strip Quilting" with Joanna Figueroa as well as her course "Simple Fresh Quilts." Both of these classes use pre-cuts to make several gorgeous quilts.

Of course there are the ever popular Camille Roskelley's courses "Playful Piecing Techniques" and "Pre-Cut Piecing Made Simple" which both use pre-cuts. Courses include some of Camille's patterns from her shop, including the iconic Swoon quilt (in the latter link) with her instructions and tips as well as some projects exclusive to the classes.

The "Hashtag" quilt (above) and "Piece of Cake 3" quit (below) are quilts I made from Camille's Craftsy classes.

I have also bought Angel Pingel's class "Simple to Stunning: Disappearing Blocks with Pre-Cuts" and just tonight I bought Amy Smart's class "Pre-Cut Shortcuts: Quilt Tops in Less Time." I especially want to make Amy's Crosshatch Quilts in this class using a layer cake and a jelly roll. You can find both of these by clicking the image below.

I am really enjoying all of these classes. Sometimes it's fun to just watch the lessons without necessarily working on the projects and then go back later when you decide which ones you want to make. It's like watching "Quilt TV." :) I will be happily watching Amy Smart's class tonight in my pajamas.

  1. Craftsy is a great place to take a class. Thanks for the info on those that use pre-cuts. Happy Canada Day.

  2. Precuts are always hard for me to use. Thanks for the ideas! Maybe I'll bite the bullet and use them!

  3. I have purchased several classes from Craftsy. Highly recommend them.
