We have been asked several times what are jelly rolls, honey buns, Bali pops and several other new pre-cut fabric. Generally these pre-cut fabrics are cut from a single collection of fabric. Below is a list of what exactly each of these pre-cut packs are:

Jelly Rolls, Honey Buns, Layer Cakes, Turnovers, Charm Packs and Dessert Rolls are all made by Moda and is part of their Bake Shop Range.
