Default I have a question ?

I am moving yet again and being unsure of where and tired of packing am selling off most of my things. So if you were buying fabric in a bundle how would you want it bundled. By color, by print type? I figured the quilt board was a good place to ask .

When I think of a fabric bundle I think of charm packs or layer cakes. They are usually either solid colors or coordinating prints. So I would want a bundle to be coordinated with a mix of solids and prints that blend together.

Hope you have a safe move. Sorry you are selling off your stuff but look on the bright side, once you are settled again you can look forward to buying new fabrics!

My friend is selling 10 yards of fabric asking $50.00 for it on Craig's list. I found it easier to give away to my church quilting group fabric I knew would make nice charity quilts that I would never get around to making. Be sure to save your favorites because you probably won't ever to find them again. Good Luck !!

You could try to sell what you can. Then what would be leftover you could donate to GW or SA and get for a tax right off, or to a guild for them to use for donation quilts.

Sorry you are selling off your stuff.
No way would I ever do that. Of course, we have lived in the same house for almost 45 years. My Husband never plans to move.

I think by color would appeal to me the most.

Can't you use it for packing material instead of paper?

I,too, would use as much of it for packing around cups, glasses, bowels, plates, pictures, lamps or anything else breakable before selling any of it. This way you don't have to worry about getting or disposing of paper or bubble wrap after the move & you have saved most of your stash.

I would think groupings in the bundle of either similar theme (florals, juvenile,Christmas etc.)or colors.
