Default Moda Scrap Bags

I ordered my first one ever on Black Friday to bring myself up to a free shipping dollar amount. My order just arrived and I am so happy with my surprise bag. I received 28 strips of 2.5 width precuts. Nice color assortment.......my Dd was home when it arrived and we both agree it comes close to all matching for a scrap quilt palette. I happen to own a layer cake that matches half of my strips so I was really fortunate. I have plans for almost all those strips! I took a photo so will include a picture.....

How did you fair?

I've seen these bags on several web sites. Add to cart. Nope. Delete. And go thru the same routine when I see them on sale again. Maybe next time I'll keep them in my sharping cart....or not...lol

I always get several bags when QIAD has a good sale price. I am never disappointed. Some are all fat eights, 9 x 21 size I can pick a bag from the basket I keep them in, grab a little yardage for constant color and have an inexpensive quilt kit.

Thats a really good idea. I just figured out what do do with some of mine as my husband would like a small quilted cover for his chairís seat.

So now I am curious, when you order several at the same time do you have noticeable fabric repeats throughout or just a really broad assortment. Btw I know every order will be different.

I can't tell you that because I don't open them sometimes for months after I get them and no way to know which packages came in together. I haven't noticed the fabric all being alike too much. I always put a note asking if possible to select different bags for my multiple purchases.

Gee. Maybe I should make some of these up and sell them, I have enough to do that.

I've bought several from different places and was really surprised that there were multiples, even after ordering months apart. Still nice for scrappy quilts

I buy them for the Moda fabric and mostly the new lines. Each batch of bags comes from the cuttings of one time produced pre cuts. The bags are available to retailers after each mass cutting. Moda use to discard the trimmings but someone said shops could sell them as bagged scraps.

Looks like you got a nice selection of fabrics on your mystery scrap bag. I have always been afraid to order those scrap bags but I think I am convinced that I need to order when offered.
