Fabric Bundles

I recently discovered that the fabric bundle bin at my local JoAnn's often has a great selection of fat quarter bundles of older quilt shop fabrics.  Not only are they are quality fabrics, they're also cheap.  These bundles are $9.99 full price so that means they could be between $5-$7 depending on which coupon or sale price you use.  Not too bad for 5 fat quarters!


The bundle on the left is from an old Moda line that my mother-in-law used to make a quilt for Shawn and me for our wedding.  The blues are the Shade Garden line that I used in my zig zag quilt that I completed earlier this year.  I nearly bought a fat quarter of one of those purple prints last weekend at a quilt shop.  I was thrilled to find two bundles to use for a potential baby girl quilt for my sister-in-law.  I need to see if I can find some yardage to go with it though.  And who knows what that bright and black bundle is-  I just think it's fun! 

I think this discovery is going to get me into trouble.  I'm a sucker for a good deal!

I've bought a few of those recently at JoAnn too. They really are great deals with a coupon. I bought that Shade Garden by Michelle Engel Bencsko set too; it's really cute.

I've heard that there has been some Heather Ross showing up in those FQ sets at JoAnn, so keep your eyes open for some of those!

Have I told you how great your blog's new look is?!!

You know, I noticed that, too. Some of those Joann fabrics, whether on bolts or in FQ bundles, are old 'quilt shop' fabrics. Yes; BAD discovery!!

They look exactly the same as what I got from spotlight. I got 6 bundles of some gorgeous fabric that I'm allowed to make a quilt for our bed (mon o the house approves)... but I don't know if it is enough. I don't suppose you recall if you saw any of this colourway - http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2546/4178373978_30b67919e2.jpg

If you did I wonder if I could arrange to get you to send some to me and I'll pay all the costs.

Wow! I've never found such treasures at Joann's. I'm going to have to look a little harder.
