    No, but I've thought about it. This would be a great way to build a stash for small projects and scrappys.

    No but I have from Keepsake and it's okay but you don't have any control over the colors. It's a great idea if you do a lot of scrappy quilts, I guess.

    I know that Fabric.com sells their scraps as well. Just not sure if I want to pay for someone else choosing the scraps I get.

    I haven't gotten the scrap packages, but have bought from equilter.com and was very happy. The only problem I see is that you get less than 1/2 yard of each piece. I guess if you were making I spy quilts that would be fine, but I like more.

    I have often bought from Equilter.com. I've had good service from them. One order came in 2 days. I have never bought scraps, just fabric lengthens.

    yes i buy the pieces not the strips and I have only had one piece out of 4 packages that I did not like. I love it ! I believe it is like 10 yards of fabric and very nice.

    I have purchased from them, and the selection I received was okay (lots of juvenile prints). I've bought fabric by the pound from The Virginia Quilter --- used that up right away. My favorite to buy these from is Honey Fork Fabrics -- if you're looking for scraps , they have a pack they call Fat Quarter Frency, which is 20 FQs for $30, and you can even pick the colors you want!!. Just ask for reds, blues, etc. on the order, and they are happy to do it.

    I purchased a stash builder box off e-bay just before Christmas & it had amazing fabrics in it! It had a great blend of colors in it & good sized pieces too. End of bolt stuff. Nice quality.
