    If you could have it anyway you want... what would the perfect FQ bundle look like, for you?

    How many pieces would it contain? Or how many yards in total?

    Would every fabric be a different print, or are multiple colorways of the same design ok?

    Is a riot of different colors most appealing? Or are you more drawn to groupings of just one or two colors?

    I personally would like a FQ bundle that had at LEAST 8 FQ in it. But probably more like 10. And, I'd like most of them to coordinate but perhaps 2 of the bunch be a color that *pops* from the show-stopper fabric in the rest of the bundle.

    Does that even make sense?

    It makes sense to me!

    I've been looking at lots of the FQ bundles that the fabric manufacturers put together. It's a lot of fun if you get a piece of everything from a whole, big collection but... it might well be more fabric than you need for one project and it can get pretty expensive as well.

    I agree I like to have one of each, but close to $100 for a FQ bundle is too much for me, I wish that would maybe put out bundles that were half the fabrics (but coordinating) and half the price!!

    I like the tower fat bundle kits. I usually don't buy a fat quarter pack with less then 10. I tend to buy fat quarters one at a time if they are not a lot in a bundle.

    I have to say, all of the above. I have purchased bundles of every fabric in a line, all one color bundles, coordinated bundles not from the same line, and rainbow bundles.

    I like bundles that are middle size the best. Too few fat quarters and there aren't enough to do anything with, too many and you end up with a lot left after a project but not enough to really do a second project.

    I love the fq bundles to have at least 30 in a bundle and I like them to have extra colors to blend with main colors.
    Of course.... sometimes I'm afraid to even cut into them they look too lusiuos (if you know what I mean)

    I like 8-10, something in the $25 range. I love the groups of coordinating fabric. It makes it easy on those of us who have a problem with color. I think the groups of 30 are great but I never buy them packaged with that many. Sounds silly but it's hard for me to justify spending that much on FQ's at one time.

    I don't usually buy the bundles because there is at least one fabric that I am not interested in. maybe you could give people the option of making their FQ bundles at a certain price. say 10 for 30 and then give them 15 choices. I have seen some bundles that I would love to make a quilt out of only the fabric is either too girly or the colors make it too manish. or the print I love and most of the fabric I love but there are a couple of the blenders that I wouldn't use because they seem to not go with it very well. Got one charm pack and used all but two of the fabrics in it. They just didn't go with the others very well. especially if they got put next to certain fabrics. I hope that you are getting what I am saying.
