I dont shop on line,but have no place locally for fabrics except walmart. These are so pretty!!! What do you think?? Are they worth the price?
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
That's a really good deal - quilt shop quality - $1.99 per FQ.
Not too bad.. although there are cheaper places out there.. if it's what you want it's probably worth the price. fat quarters in LQS here are 2.50 each.
There are some on-line places to get somewhat better prices.. you can try Thousands of Bolts and Whittens. Both are great sources. Don't forget you have to pay shipping also...
Even better deal:
page 24 of Keepsakes Holiday Update catalog:
Fall Sweep Scrap Bag 100 fat quarters $99. I ordered this $99 collection before, it 's all perfect quality fat quarters, no two alike.
check out all the fat quarter scrap bag kits, all start at $20. I think it's only in the catalog, not on the website but the item number for the $99 collection is #2221
Did I do the math right? 10 FQs = 2.5 yards which means @19.99 for the bundle, the yardage price is $8. They are pretty but they are pricey IMO.
I went to Keepsakes and if you type in the item number, 2221, then you get the scrap bag. That is a really good deal. Knowing my luck, I would love one the the fabrics and want to use more and not find it anywhere! This would be great for scrap quilts!
Fat quarters themselves are pricey. As someone said, they're usually $2.50 each. So that would be $10/yard, when the bolt yardage price is usually around $8. You pay for the convenience of the fat quarter over the long quarterOriginally Posted by MadQuilter
Sorry, I don't think it is a good deal at all unless you specifically want those fabrics (and also want FQ's) and can't find them locally. That site would also charge $5.00 for shipping on an order of $19.99, which brings you up to $24.99 for the 10 FQs, or esentially $10/yd.
One good thing about fat quarters, you can tell you hubby they are free samples. 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)
It is definitely not spectacular when you factor in shipping you arent really saving anything. I buy my fabrics mostly from ebay... watch the ending soon and I mostly just buy from people who I see have quilt stores themselves so I know I am getting quality fabrics. Just my two cents... but the fabrics ARE really beautiful, so if you like it I would get it anyhow lol. :)
