I knew I was going to have to eat my words after my comments on the 'stash or purchase' thread! Anyway, I have an opportunity to puchase a Kaufman's Bounty of Basics Fat Quarter Box Mixmasters for a decent price. The original price I would never go for but there is an approximately 35% discount and then I'll have another 10% off (pre-shipping, of course) so I would be paying about $169 for the set . I can't decide if I should go for it or not.
I am not one to stash fabric. However, I am currently on a rainbow/color spectrum kick. I was originally planning on doing something with a Kona Classic jelly roll (not purchased yet) but having the FQs will give me more versatility in selecting patterns than the strips. I do have an idea of what I want the quilt to look like in the end but I haven't found exactly the pattern I want yet. Also, I like that the Mixmasters are different prints within the same color range so I think it might give more variety than a straight solid. If you're not familiar with the Mixmasters here is a sample:
As a side-note and full disclosure I do have a rainbow kit which I have not started yet but the fabrics in the kit are not blenders or tone on tones they are regular prints.
What does everyone think?
