New Stitching and New Strips

Two more zip pouches completed in the Christmas sewing plan.  A blue Amy Butler and a colorful pink and green one.  These are great to make a quick gift.  I am liking the straight line quilting these days.


Made a trip to the store today for more batting and of course I could not resist some fabric.  I am beginning to have ideas for a quilt circulating in my mind but I am not yet ready to purchase the fabric - still have to decide exactly what I want to do - so I settled on this little roll of Riley Blake strips. These strips may find their way into the Christmas sewing or into a quilt.

I am not a big buyer of precuts - except fat quarters - I LOVE fat quarters!  But I don't buy charms or strips very often.  Guess I just like having more options with my fabric.  But I thought these strips might be a fun change.  Oh and I'm a sucker for dots.  And this little roll is so cute! :)
How about you? Do you like pre-cuts?

Linking up with Fabric Tuesday and Sew Cute Tuesday.

Your pouches are so pretty and will make such nice gifts! I like you don't tend to purchase precuts other than fat quarters. I visited my local quilt store and picked up several and then laid them down and purchased cut yardage and fat quarters. There was a fat eights in the bunch! Your Riley Blake jelly roll is so nice. Now to see what you will make out of the roll! Happy sewing!

I can be the same about pre-cuts...but you can't go wrong with dots or a similar basic! And your zip pouches are darling!! I agree they make awesome gifts and are quick to make!
