Rated 1 out of 5 by NKRNA Not a Nice Deal
I have just received two of these bags. I feel quite disappointed. Not only most of the colors are dull and bored -many of them very old browns-, but also the quality of some fabrics are quite questionable. Some of the fabrics are very thin in thread counts and had no selvage marks or whatsoever as it they came out of a flea market. This is not acceptable when you buy "in confidence". Fabric.com must change this policy of "surprising" the customer in a negative way. If I am buying something "blind" the Company must make sure that I am going to be 100% satisfied. Even the price I have paid for this does not compensate for so many fabric mistaken. (I received HUGE pieces of fabric with POTATOES, ROUTE 66, or TANGO print !!!!. Honestly, the surprise bags should not be an OUTLET for the fabrics the shop cannot get rid off. I won't even take the effort to upload a picture of them, unless you ask for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Raingirl Three Pound Cotton Remnant Assortment is well worth the money
I have been buying these remnant bags for several years with varying degrees of joy. The one that came today was the best I have ever received. Yes the price has gone up. Yes there is no choice for what comes in the bag, but the fabrics are smoothly folded, put with other fabrics that sometimes coordinate. To me, a remnant is simply that. It is something that is left over. I would say that this is a veritable bargain and look forward to my next bag with great anticipation. As for the price. Well, these bags have gone up as have all fabrics.

Rated 4 out of 5 by julia745745 Three Pound Cotton Remnant Assortment if can choose colors
I have bought the "Three Pound Cotton Remnant Assortment"
since 2009 when it was $16.98, and then 2010-2012 was $19.98.
11/2014 I have ordered 2 "Three Pound Cotton Remnant Assortment"
one was impressed , but the other had far too much holiday fabric with colors red and colors green.
On the average I can accept this result, because when the price is double If we can choose the color bound.
I will order it again, because it shall full of two kind feeling with surprise and disappoint.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jenni Price Doubled
I have bought at least 2 of these remnant assortment packets last year. I was very pleased with the quality and assortment that I received for $20. Being a scrappy quilter, I love using what I got to make some interesting quilts and I had to be creative to use the fabric that I personally didn't care for (which wasn't much). I will admit that a few pieces of fabric in the bunch was something that I would have never picked out myself but I will definitely finish useing what I received. I was shocked to see that the price doubled this year. $40 is a lot to spend on fabric that you didn't pick out yourself. I doubt I will be ordering this again at this price.
On another note, if the price was back at $20, I would recommend this product to a friend and order more myself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kate Great Assortment, WAS a great deal
I ordered several of these last year, and loved 4/5 of them (one had far too much holiday fabric for my taste). Always been super impressed, but the price has doubled! $40 is a lot to shell out for an assortment your not even sure your going to like.
I'm just amazed they would double the price! But if your feeling adventurous you will get a great choice of mostly 1/2 to full yd cuts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by QuiltingBibliophagist Good Fabric for Quilters
I ordered one of these at the end of October 2012. In my particular bundle all of the fabrics were 1 yard pieces with a square cut out of one corner. Since I am a scrappy quilter, I was more than happy with my purchase.
However, the price of these bundles has doubled since then, so they are not as much of a bargain as they used to be. It's still a good price for good quality cotton fabric, but the previous price made me more willing to take a chance on a sight-unseen bundle of remnants. I am undecided about whether to order one of these again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by amzggal Never Disappointed
I have ordered several of the assortments and what a great mix of fabrics for scrap quilting and small projects. Several pieces that I have received have been at the full yard so I have been able to create projects such as purses. I probably would have never chosen some of the designs myself, but I have been inspired to create beyond my comfort zone.
