    Grab Bags

    Has anyone ordered from The Fat Quarter Shop? 12 pound grab bag. I am interested in mostly strips for making string quilts. It states pieces. I just wondered what all is in there.

    I have no idea. If it's 12 lbs that's a lot to me!

    You get a variety of pieces anywhere from 2-3" by WOF to almost half yards. I have received some with odd squares too. I love them! Thinking I need to order a couple more soon! You get a few solids and a few pieces in almost all colors (reds, pink, blues, greens, etc.).

    Here's a description of what one person got in her bag - http://bunks.wordpress.com/tag/fat-q...bag-12-pounds/

    It sounds pretty good to me.

    I have ordered up to 5 of the boxes at a time. I have never been disappointed. The fabric is top quality. Perfect for scrap quilting, applique and projects.
    Got fabric?

    I'm looking at their site..where is the link for the grab bags?
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    Imagine coming home from work to one of those boxes witing in the mail.
    Quilt outside of the box!

    I couldn't find it either, did a search for grab bags and it came up empty. Sounds like a great deal.

    At the site, search for grab bag. That is the only way I have been able to find them.

    The 12 lb bags of fabric can be found in the odds and ends section. I just placed my order.

    Thanks so much for the link kbatky, I just ordered my box, hubby is going to "attempt" to stop me from getting on the Board everyday, I'm getting so many packages in the mail for materials and items for quilting that I've learned about on here

    I was charged much less shipping then $10 on the final order of one box. When we get the boxes let's post the content pictures so we can see the difference in fabrics.

    san-sing,
    I've ordered yardage many times from The Fat Quarter Shop, but not the grab bags. You could contact the shop, there is a toll free number. The store owner is very nice, she called me when there was a problem with my order.

    Haven't ordered that but have bought the 3# for $20 several times from Fabric.com and was very pleased with it. Mostly 1- .5 yard lengths, some had a piece missing (swatch?) but good stuff.

    you quilty peeps in the states are so lucky. They will not ship the grab bags internationally. Typical. Fabric is so expensive in the uk. We pay in english pounds what you pay in dollars, sometimes more. Good job I like scrappy quilts.
