    Default Mystery Fat Quarters

    I am tempted to go for it and purchase a bloc-loc ruler with the free shipping and other freebies today. My only question is whether the pack of 3 Mystery Fat Quarters will be worth it. Will they be coordinating I understand and accept that they may or may not be to my liking but I would hope they would at least "get along" with one another. In the past I have ordered M* kit for a zipper pouch and the fabrics included did not go together at all, one was a rather bright pink and the other was a patterned civil war repro type fabric.

    I look at these as freebies. If I don't like them, I trade them with others. Sometimes they have to sit awhile with others to find their match. They could make a nice microwave bowl, and it wouldn't matter if they get ruined over time.

    I am tempted also, but still waiting for shipping on my order placed last week.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    don't count on them matching. I have ordered them to fill in orders for free shipping and gotten nice coordination and other times I have gotten cartoons and chevrons and flowers...so who knows.

    I have ordered them twice, they did not match at all.
    One was stripes and the other Halloween. Will not order
    them again.

    None of mine have ever looked good together but were nice additions to my stash.

    I found my white strips on the website, so I ordered them and the fat quarters were part of the deal. Have no clue what they are. I can always use them for lining of bags.

    Got a bundle of FQ's on sale that match a panel I already have. Mystery FQ's will just be a bonus. Makes no difference what they are to me ... will trade or give as gifts if I can't use them. When I have gotten them in the past they usually don't match.

    I like the mystery fat quarters. Any fat quarters that I don't think I'll use are always used as gifts or exchange. For the dirty Santa gift exchanges, I will attach a fat quarter to the gift. Folks usually fight over these since there is a free fat quarter attached. LOL
