Bake Shop Basics: Precut Info

MBS-basics-cover-precut-info

Have you ever noticed the packaging that comes with your precuts? Fat quarter and fat eighth bundles, Layer Cakes®, and charm packs all come with a sheet 0f paper listing the SKUs for each included fabric. SKUs are the numbers used to identify each product in a store (or warehouse, in our case). Knowing the SKU number of a certain print allows you to easily search the web to find yardage or call up your favorite shop and see if they have it in stock. We often list product SKUs here on the Bake Shop to help those of you who want to make the quilts exactly as shown.

Layer Cakes® come with some extra information – How to Slice a Layer Cake. This fun printable will give you ideas for working with Layer Cakes and you can download a copy {here} if you don’t have one on hand.

    Indeed, happen to have used one or the other SKU for re-ordering a certain fabric.
    May it be for mis-cutting (aaaarrrghh) or simply finding out later that I want to use that design in another quilt but did not have enough in stock.
    As if I would not have enough other fabric in total to last me for at least a hundred years…. ;-))

    It helped me a lot to finish my quilts with “that special fabric”.

    Great reference! Thank you!

    Thank you for very useful information.

    Well that certainly beats ordering in doubles as a precaution and finishing with lots of extra materials. Can also use the SKU for reselling! Really fantastic to know all this!

    Thanks for the info! I never thought of searching via the SKU.

    Hi, I’d like to suggest you call your local quilt shop first when looking for a SKU then, if they don’t happen to carry that fabric, search the web. It would be a shame to lose all our brick and mortar shops.
