    Look what I found on the way home from work.

    I stopped by Michael's and they had these FQ bundles on clearance for $1 each!!

    Of course I had to buy all that they had :thumbup:


    What do you think I should make?

    I'd love to try a bargello.....well, Im just not ready for that!

    5 FQ in each bundle!

    What a great find...how can they sell them at that price and still make a profit? Makes you wonder what the markup on fabric is?

    If clearance, then they weren't worried about profit any longer. Probably discontinuing carrying fabric. Nice find!!

    Those FQ's would make a perfect Bargello!

    Great find. I can't think of what you can do with it right now, but I am sure it will come to you.

    Great deal! I bought several of these bundles (greens. blues, purples and pinks) from Michael's this summer for $3.50 each (i.e. 50% off from original price) and thought I was doing really well then. You really did "score" at $1 per bundle!!!

    That's awesome! Our Michaels doesn't carry fabric either and very few quilt supplies at all.

    You did goooood! I got several of those at JoAnn's and they were $6.99. Of course, I had coupons but they still weren't a dollar.

    Great deal! Congratulations!

    Our Michael's doesn't sell fabric and our local Joann's is redoing their store, so they have very little out right now. What they do have out, you can't find! I was in the store yesterday for more than an hour and was so disgusted that I left with a total of $15.00 worth of fabric.

    You did great! I found the same deal at Michael's last month and I bought all they had as well - 23 bundles at $1 each.
    Our Michael's was getting rid of fabrics (they only carried FQ's anyway). The strange part was that their single FQ's were not on sale. Didn't make sense to pay $1.50 for a single when a whole bundle was only a buck. But who am I to question? I just bought all the bundles and left the singles. When I came home and showed my friend she said she was going to go to another store the next day. But she was told that store was not participating in the sale. Strange... I thought I would save them for something special but finally decided to cut a few to use for the Downey quilt pattern to make a quilt for my brother's first grandchild. I'll post a photo as soon as I get it finished. Good deal for everyone who was able to get in on it.

    Our store doesn't carry them. They are great colors. I can see why you bought them all.
