... that Hoffman is not coming out with any new FQ batik bundles. They're doing new Bali Pops, but not the FQs.

Am I the only one that is disappointed in this?

Or are their Bali Pops just way more popular than the FQs?

(I think the last time they did new FQ bundles was about two years ago.)

I prefer FQ or yardage.

I prefer fat quarters to the pop strips but luckily my LQS will cut FQ from anything on the shelf so I can get the new colors that way.

Hate to show my ignorance, but what is a "pop"?

I was picturing a Tootsie pop. :-)

Thanks! I should have thought to do a search.

Maybe it's just a local thing, but I sell way more precuts (jelly rolls, bali pops, etc.) than FQ or FQ bundles. Perhaps it goes in cycles? The precuts seem to be all the rage right now.

I don't know about the fat quarters, but I haven't found a place that I can see the bali pops fabric. I know fabricdepot.com online store has had a sale on some hoffman batiks of late.
