Are you guys ready for the next challenge??!! It’s PRECUTS!!!!

That’s right! Use up those mini charms, charms, jelly rolls, honey buns, layer cakes, Fat quarters, Fat eighths, dessert rolls, honeycombs and turnovers! We all have them… looking so yummy stacked pretty in our fabric cabinets and on our shelves… looking like our very own fabric store……… AHEM…. let’s use them! We will be using the hashtag #SewMyStash2015PrecutsParty to share our work together! There will be another giveaway at the end. Details for everything below!


1) Your fabric must come from a precut bundle. I will accept your own precuts as long as it’s from all the same collection, or manufacturer, or designer. I believe most manufacturers make precuts, but the most popular are Moda and Robert Kaufman. But in case you didn’t know, Windham Fabrics and Cotton + Steel make them too! (I only just discovered this while researching for this post!). Anyway, the point is to use up coordinating precuts!

2) Again, sew anything you want!! This will be a common rule! It does NOT have to be a quilt! Precuts are super great for pillows, fabric baskets, backpacks, and bags too! This challenge may not lend itself well to apparel sewing, so if you make a lot of clothes, break out of your comfort zone and try something else!

3) Yes, you may purchase fabric you need for background/sashing, backing, binding, bag hardware, etc. Just use precuts that are in your stash!

4) This must be complete in 4 weeks! That’s Sunday March 8th! For quilts, we will accept quilt tops completed. I gave a lot of time for this challenge so that sewers can make an actual full size quilt!

5) To be entered in the giveaway, you must link up HERE! Since this will be such a long challenge, I cannot reasonably cycle through the hashtag and write down each of your names. Instead, you will link up here by submitting 1 picture of your project. The link up widget will number the submissions, and then I will use the random number generator to get a winner. This also makes it easy for non-Instagram users to participate and for everyone to see each others submissions!

Bonus!!! You may submit a SECOND entry if you complete another project that coordinates!! Example: quilt top and pillow, 2 pillows, purse and little zippy, etc. I hope you get the idea.

I will reveal the giveaway items soon, and the link up will be active in the next few days.

Happy Sewing, and thanks for playing along!


PS. I super love all the use the hashtag is getting and the buzz about SewMyStash! You guys rock my socks off!


We have a giveaway package!! Amanda of Westwood Acres and Jennie of Clover And Violet have graciously donated to the giveaway package for the Precuts Party!

    FUN!! I have SOOOOO many pre-cuts! I could have done this if you just said FQs, or just charms, or just JR…you get the idea. My question – can we have more than one entry?

  2. Jaq says:

    Yes! I have a bundle I keep meaning to get around to sewing up. And super thanks for the longer ‘deadline’… this one might take me awhile. 😉

    Do you know when the link will be up? I have so many pre-cut ideas and it’s time to get cracking on them! Thanks for this kick in the pants.

    • Leasa says:

      just put it up! Thanks for reminding me!! Remember, its for your finished project photos. If you want to show in progress stuff then Instagram is the best way to share via the hashtag :). Thanks for playing along!!

    So funny, I didn’t even think I had that many precuts because I have them saved and I never want to cut into them. I have been really thinking Sew My Stash this year and it doesn’t pain me so much to cut into something. I have to think at least it is going to good use and not wasted!! 🙂

  5. Beth says:

    I just came across this post on Instagram on a night when I started working on my first precut quilt (a moda layer cake), so random, but I’m going to try to get the top finished in time to join in. Thanks for the fun motivation!

  6. Gretchen says:

    Is it too late to join???
    I purchased a bunch of precuts in the last couple months, but there they sit, all pretty, with a cute tag…..just sitting there!
    (since I am late that would mean they are technically in my stash…:) right, right??? Bueller….
    I just hastagged on IG my heart quilt from the Jan/Feb challenge, all stash!! I only had to purchase backing!! woot woot!
    I have a ton of flannel to make pj pants for my kids to complete the 2nd challenge.!
    I already had it on my to do list for 2015 to sew my stash so this will be so inspiring! Thanks!
    Now can I actually cut into my glamping jellyroll to get a quilt top done in a week….AAACCCCKKKK

    • Leasa says:

      Not at all! Can you whip something up in 1 week? Can be anything you want. FYI a finished quilt only needs to be a finished top. Thanks for joining!!

      • Gretchen says:

        Waited until today to do the complete top, #procrastinator!!
        I have been so afraid to open my first Jellyroll!! I did it, I did it!! Moda Glamping, perfect for our camp this summer!
        I am going to do the kids clothes challenge tomorrow, and I already hashtagged my heart project too, I know those two are over but I just want to catch up and follow along now with the next challenges:)
        Thank you for getting me motivated this year!! Cannot wait to see the next stash buster is!

    Can it be a custom fat quarter bundle of one line that I ordered? It didn’t come up tied with ribbons or anything. 18 Fqs of brambleberry ridge.
