When I was in Joann's yesterday they had bundles of fat eighths. You got seven cuts of fabric for $3.99. They were sold by color so you got a selection from very light to very dark and they had all colors. Now I am not a fan of buying fabric this way as I think it is more expensive would take me all day and then some to match the fabrics like this. If you do applique or are doing a quilt that needs small amounts of lots of colors, this would be great. I was good and just bought one, my grand daughter loves purple in all shades so figured a purple bundle would get used soon. Now trying to think of a good excuse to buy a couple more colors.

Hello, my name is Norma and I am a fabricolic. Need a twelve step program soon! :bluewink:

They would work for the little dresden plate wallhanging I am doing too. I need 8 different blues. I will have to dig thru my stash today. Look out, fabric flying everywhere!
