Can I purchase quilting precuts at Spotlight?

Yes, you can. As well as a huge range of quilting fabrics by the metre, Spotlight also stocks a great selection of quilting precuts for you to choose from. These precut pieces of material mean you can mix and match to your heart’s content from the range of colours and designs on offer to create your completely individual and unique quilted object. There are also a couple of bundles on offer.

What size are the quilting precuts?

Quilting precuts tend to be sold in a standard size, here referred to as Fat Flats. In some parts of the world, these pieces of material are referred to as Fat Quarters or FQs. The size of these precuts is generally around 50 x 52 cm, although some companies vary their sizes and they can be sized at 46 x 56 cm or similar. In effect, buying 4 fat quarters gives you roughly the same as buying a yard (90 cm) of fabric, but you will be able to have 4 different designs or colours.

What type of fabric are the quilting precuts made from?

Virtually all quilting precuts are made from 100% cotton, but it is always wise to check the product description if you are unsure about a particular item. For certain projects, you may also want to use other types of fabric such as flannelette or terry towelling. It is important to make sure that you wash your quilting precuts before use in case of shrinkage or colour bleeding, which is much more difficult to deal with once your quilted project is finished.

What else is included in the quilting precuts range at Spotlight?

If you are new to the world of quilting or are unsure about which designs and/or colours work well together or how much material you may need, you can find some great quilting kits here at Spotlight. Quilting kits usually contain everything you need to complete your project, or will set out exactly what you need to add for filling and backing material.

Which quilted projects can I find included in the kits?

Our selection is added to regularly, but you will usually find kits here for small quilts, suitable for baby cots or kids bedrooms, as well as quilt for panels or bedspreads in larger sizes. Check out the various kits on offer to find the size of the complete project.

What is a jelly roll?

Jelly rolls are bundles of fabric strips that have been gathered together to complement each other and can be used for many quilting projects. The sizes of the strips are usually around 6 cm wide by about a metre long, and you can, of course, use the strips as they are or cut them into smaller pieces for your own design. Choose from various designs in attractive colour schemes in both cotton and flannelette fabrics for a variety of projects.

Tackling the craft of quilting

Quilting has been a popular craft for hundreds of years in many cultures around the world. Quilts can be used for warmth, for decorative reasons such as in a wall hanging, and in some ancient civilizations the pictures in the fabric squares portrayed stories.

Quilts often become family heirlooms, passed down through generations. A handmade quilt makes a beautiful gift for a newborn baby or for someone special.

A quilt consists of three fabric panels – the backing, the middle wadding and the top piece which is made up of several individual fabric squares sewn together.

When you first take up the craft of quilting, the terminology can be baffling and setting yourself up with a range of fabrics and all the necessary equipment can be a little daunting.

A good place to begin in order to reduce the complexity and cost of your new quilting hobby, is to visit your local Spotlight store or shop online at Spotlight and purchase a quilting kit.

What will I find in a quilting kit?

Spotlight’s quilting kits such as the Birch Start to Quilt Kit contain some basic quilting essentials.

A cutting mat and a cutting tool are must-haves, as are safety pins, quilting pins and quilting needles. A quilter’s pencil and a special quilting ruler complete the kit. Add to that a selection of fat flats, jelly rolls and charm packs, your choice of wadding and backing material, along with a sewing or quilting machine and you are well on your way to creating your first unique quilted masterpiece!

For beginners Spotlight’s Squares Simple Quilts Kit 110 x 110 cm or the Triangle Simple Quilts Kit 90 x 108 cm in 100% cotton are easy fabrics to get started with.

Combined with Spotlight’s lowest price guarantee, buying your quilting basics in the form of a kit can be a very cost-effective way to set yourself up with everything you need to create stunning quilts for family and friends, to use as bedcovers, lounge room throw rugs, or on-trend wall hangings.

Can I buy everything I need to start quilting from Spotlight?

Yes, you can easily find what you need at your local Spotlight store or by shopping online at Spotlight. We have a comprehensive selection of quilting products including fabrics by the yard, fat flats (also known as fat quarters), jelly rolls, charm packs, basting spray, quilting thread, bobbins, backing fabrics and wadding which is also called batting. There are many different types of wadding so you can make a lightweight or a winter-weight quilt using your choice of cotton, bamboo, wool or blended materials.

Spotlight also sell sewing machines and specialised quilting machines with larger work areas to more easily navigate the spread and bulk of a large quilt. Our Singer quilting machine also provides special feet for sewing bulky items, many programmable stitch patterns, a drop and sew bobbin system, drop feed for free motion sewing, twin needle sewing capability and simple push-button stitch selection.
