    Today I ordered the fabric I need for my new grand daughter's quilt (due in July) from fabric.com. While browsing I saw their scrap bags. Three pounds of fabric for $19.95. I had good success with the Moda scrap bag so decided to give this one a try. They say it's approx. 9 yds. of fabric in sizes ranging from 1/8 to one yd. Has anyone here ordered a scrap bag from fabric.com?

    I'll let you know what I get.

    I ordered one last year and was happy with it. Most of the pieces were a half of a yard to a yard, some a little smaller. There were no tiny pieces. Good luck on yours.

    I almost ordered the scrap bag, but I already had 20 yds or so in my cart and decided not to. Let us know what you get.

    I was going for the free shipping. :)

    Also, I'm working on a couple of scrap quilts and am running out of scraps. Plus I'm just in the mood for a big surprise.

    I love bags like that! Got one last week at the quilt show here for $2.50. It was loaded with some great pieces from 1/8 to 1 yard. Let us know what you get.

    I am curious about how much of the fabric is solid colors. I don't use many solids. Please post after the order arrives.

    I bought a bag of "scraps" at a quilt shop one time, just because I liked the colors, all purples and lavenders. I THOUGHT I was getting a bunch of small scraps, although I could see some larger strips or something in the bag too. I think I paid $4. When I got home and opened the bag, it was full of pre-cut diamonds in 4 fabrics, plus several cut borders. Enough for a huge quilt or two small ones. The only bad thing was that I had to iron everything because it was just stuffed into a small plastic bag! What a bargain! I'm adding a white background so I'll probably have enough diamonds for 2 or 3 quilts!

    YES - and I love all four of them that I have bought. I am using one right now on a baby quilt that I am working on.

    Just ordered and used the code and saved also, thank you so much. Will let you know what I get for fabric and I ordered 2 so maybe I'll get lucky and they will be different.

    The last time I ordered from them, I almost ordered the scrap bag. So, I'm also curious to see what you receive. I love that site!

    Oh thank you for doing this! I have wondered about these scraps bags but even at such a price I didn't want to take the chance. Please let us know what you think!

    I just ordered from fabric.com. I didn't know they had scrap bags but I need to get rid of my own first. lol
    I ordered from their clearance sale. I got 8 yards of white batiste to make curtains for my bedroom Now I just have to figure out if I want floor or window sill length. But it will cost next to nothing to make. $16.00 for fabric. I will say that 2 of the fabrics were out of stock and they sent one wrong fabric. They are refunding my money and told me to keep the fabric. Good customer service. :-)
