    Thanks for all the sharing. I love to buy FQs that come bundled as a collection, but end up not knowing what to do with them. I think the reason is because it is difficult for me to "break" them up, cos they look so pretty and perfect in the same collection. Think I should put a stop to this "bad" habit. LOL

    I too buy both. I tend to use the FQ's for mug rugs, coasters or doll quilts; the kind for neighbors daughter to play with and use yardage for quilts that I want a lil smoother or higher grade of fabric. love the colors I can use with FQ's and not have tooo much left on my stash shelf. sorry I just don't have that much room for a lg stash.

    1/3 yard is approx the same price and you get more bang for your buck!

    I use those bundles for Miss Rosie's patterns. Love them!
