What are precuts?

Precuts are bundles of fabrics that have been cut to a definite size by a lazer machine. They come in different sizes and shapes (strips, hexagons, triangles, etc.). They have numerous advantages: they save you time at shopping and the cutting mat, and since they all come from the same line, all of the pieces in the bundle go together perfectly.

Why inches and not metric (cm)?

Many quilters struggle with the conversion of measures due to the different metric systems quilters use in the United States and we here in Europe.
