    I bought 3 from fabric.com. (3# for $19.95)

    They were WOF cuts, over 1/2 yd each. Lovely fabrics. Things I would not think to buy, but am so glad I have them. (3 pc I am going to look for yardage to buy, love them that much.)

    I bought 4 from connecting threads (1# for $7.98)

    They were different pieces, mostly left over from their strip, charm, & stack cuttings. 3 packages were all selvedge side, so lost a lot of poundage to just selvedges.

    connecting threads grab bags cost $4 and are less satisfactory.

    Just want to say I have bought yardage, FQ, strips, charms & stacks from connecting threads & I LOVE THEM.

    I also like the Moda scrap bags. They're 3-4 inch pieces cut along the selvedge edges but I didn't mind. Also, you get scraps from a collection so they work together.

    Loved my bundle from fabric.com but haven't tried Connecting Threads. Anyone tried Keepsake Quilting scrap bags?

    I ordered scraps from fabric.com. I did not like the fabrics at all and ended up returning.
    I just ordered scraps from CT- we'll see how that goes.
