Do not cut the fabric at all. Catalogue of the fabrics are the fabric, print / solid / color predominant length and width. Take pictures and the list in your eBay store. Make sure that the models are equipped with instructions, no parts are missing. Indicate that they are vintage fabrics and patterns in the registry. It is never a good idea to list your email in an open forum that invites you to a lot of spam.

The preferred fabrics for making quilts are 100% cotton. Most craft and fabric stores have a designated area for quilt fabrics and supplies and every community has specialty quilt shops. In addition to bolt fabrics which you purchase by the yard, precut fabrics and precut quilt kits are also made available for convenience.

There are different names for precut fabrics but I think the two most popular are called fat quarter and charm pack quilting squares. Requests for the precut fabrics is time saving, less labor intensive, and color coordination selections have been done by the fabric designers or the staff in the quilting shops or the fabric stores.

The fat quarter is made up of squares measuring 18 x 21 or 18 x 22 inches. Learn to make your own personal fat quarter. Cut one yard of 44 inch wide fabric into four equal squares, one inch allowable for waste or to keep.

The charm pack contains five inch squares. Cutting one yard of 44 inch wide fabric will produce eight (5 inch) squares across the width with four inches remaining. The remaining four inches can be converted to three inch squares if you wish or make a 21/2 inch roll which is called a jelly roll. The 11/2 inch roll is called a honey bun. These rolls provide possibilities for quilt binding.

Scrap quilting is working with scraps held over from other fabrics. If you are a quilter most of your scraps will be cotton. If you sew with a variety of fabrics, there are challenges to your creativity. Fabric knowledge will be critical as you mix and match.

Fabric cutting is important. Squares, rectangles, borders, and sash strips, will be cut on straight-of-grain. This lengthwise grain runs along the selvage edge of the fabric. The selvage edge is the outer edge of the fabric where the threads have collected during the weaving process.

Do not include the selvage edge when cutting your borders. Did you notice how the quilt block will not allow the fabric to lie flat? There will be puckering and unnecessary pulling occurring in the finished product.

Cutting circles will capture straight, crosswise, and bias run of the fabric. Flexibility is needed in the circle and if you gently pull on it you will feel and see how the fabric stretches.

As you know the triangle is a square cut diagonally and will have one side that lies on the bias. Attach the bias side of the cut to the straight edge of the adjoining piece. Be very careful when handling the bias cut. Stay stitching or taping will stabilize the stretch if assistance is needed.

Through the years I have learned to be a jack-of-all-trades and maybe mastered one. Because my interests are many, diversity has been the road most traveled. Currently, my hobby is learning and combining these interests with my business of internet marketing.
