The first thing I want to clarify is Connie’s choice of fabrics. I wish I could tell you that she used one specific pre-cut pack but sadly she did not. She never would. Connie is an expert at combining fabrics and always uses yardage from her stash – now that’s not to say she didn’t use a piece of a layer cake or charm pack along with her other choices of fabrics but in general she picks fabrics independently. I think many quilters are actually afraid of this step and they shouldn’t be. Give yourself a little credit. If you’d be more comfortable starting with a precut pack, there’s nothing wrong with that. Just add to that pack – don’t use every single fabric of the same design in every color. We think our quilts are more interesting using a wider range of fabrics.
I hope this answers your questions.
