Who’s ready for a sneak peek inside our February Sew Sampler box? Grab those ‘sunglasses’ because you’re gonna need them this month! We haven’t gone too ‘fruity’ this month, we promise!
What could this fun pineapple below possibly allude to? We’d love to hear what you think, comment on this blog and let us know.
If you are not yet subscribed, and want to join in on the fun, be sure to do so quickly because boxes ship out around February 20th!
Well, I have been wrong when guessing these things every single time.
But could it be a Creative Grids Mini Pineapple trim tool?
I have been wrong too……I like your idea of the tool though.
I for one am totally excited. This is my first box. I have to not even look at any sites after the 20th cause I am in Canada So my box will be a few days after everyone else.
Welcome to our home.
“Sun and Water” Alice Pineapple Pack by Pineapple Fabrics, maybe? Covers all the clues – batik – “not too fruity”, sunglasses- sun and water, Pineapple- fabric name. I don’t have a clue, lol.
I dont care what it is, i always love my Sew Sampler surprises. Lol
I think it is for Hawaii!!! Bathing suits & sunglasses ;^)
Betty’s Luncheonette from Violet Craft?
If it is I am in heaven!!!!!
I think your guess is correct.
Beautiful fabric line
It’s my first box too! And I live in the great white north too. Can not wait for my box!!
Oh, I hope its the pineapple farm pattern by Elizabeth Hartman!!
A pineapple welcome wall hanging. I know whatever it is will be so much fun!
Hoping for a great pineapple pattern & ruler. I’ve never made that block yet.
Lori Holts Fruit Salad templets.
This would be AWESOME!! I hope you’re right!
I’m stumped. There isn’t a pineapple template in Lori Holt’s Fruit Salad, the shape doesn’t match Elizabeth Hartman’s pattern or the pineapple in Betty’s Luncheonette, and they’re pretty good at putting exact shapes on the sneak peak. Hmmmmm.
Lori Holt’s templates… could we be THAT lucky????
spoke too soon… no pineapple in the fruit bowl. I have to go back to my 1st best guess… pineapple ruler… sunflower fabrics!
I hope we learn how to make a Pineapple block!
I LOVE Pineapples!!!!
What ever it is, I will love!
The clues don’t help me at all, I hope it has a pineapple ruler, I’ve been wanting to make one of those!
I don’t know, but bright colors and pineapples? Count me in! Psst. It’s allude, not elude. Although…maybe it is elude because I have no idea what the surprise could be! 😃
Oh please tell you are a teacher, that is the first thing I noticed when reading it, and I teach so I blame that
Noticed, too! I test software so it’s in my nature to critique. LOL.
I think it could be a pineapple ruler/tool and some colorful fabric!!!!
Sirena fabric collection by Jessica Swift for AGF. Not too fruity (pineapples only) and gorgeous bright summery colorways!
I would much prefer this over Betty’s Luncheonette.
Ooh, I love that fabric line, thanks for mentioning it. The CG Mini pineapple ruler would be great too.
Tropical print and a pineapplr block pattern…maybe with sunglasses…lol!
AHh, please tell me it is NOT a pineapple pattern. I never have been a pineapple theme fan. If so, I wish there was a reject box before I pay for something that would be a waste of my $$$
me too..! I may be gifting mine to my sister if so…
the pineapple mini ruler please! so excited!
I’m with you. I like pineapples as an image – but I really don’t care for the Pineapple Block.
Maybe a bag or case for sunglasses with a pineapple themed fabric?!
Hope it’s a pineapple block and ruler. Love them.
Whatever it is I love pineapples!!!
I sure hope it’s yellow like pineapple and not green like in the peek! It’s my first box .. dislike green! Guessing it’s to do with making a pineapple block.
Citrus fruit kona mini, maker valley pineapple pin, pineapple pattern/ruler
Citrus Classics from Kaffe Collective and pineapple trim tool.
Well! By the picture, could it be a pineapple tool or pattern? Yellow and green fabrics would be exciting, too.
Pineapple print fabric and ruler
Sunglasses and pineapple? Hmmmmm, tickets to Hawaii?
Pineapple anything is Fantabulous!
Kate Spain fabric? *hope!
Whatever it is, it’s sure to be fun!
I have no idea but I love pineapple anything!!
Sweet!! Can’t wait for my box!
Pineapple block…I think this is one of a most intricate block
Something with the Sunny days strips set so we need our sunglasses?
Maybe some fluorescent type fabrics with pineapples on them?
Maybe some fluorescent type fabrics!
Hopefully a pineapple pattern or pineapple welcome wall hanging!!!!
I think Gail K is on it!! Bright and tropical!!
Doesn’t matter what it is, I subscribed because I like the idea of using fabrics, tools, techniques I’ve never done before. Left to my own devices, I pick the same colors, same techniques. If you cancel because you “think” you might not like the pattern or the fabric you are missing the point of the boxes. Because “Life begins at the edge of your comfort zone.”
I agree Stephanie! The box is an opportunity to explore different things you otherwise might not consider. I am looking forward to some kind of tropical theme!
Stephanie you are so right !its good to try new things and at this price, it’s a great way to learn something new. So much negativity today sheesh! I always get something I like in these boxes. Plus I can give what I don’t like as a gift making someone else happy. I’m excited!
I agree Ramona! Let’s break the negativity spell!
I totally agree with you Stephanie. I’ve been getting the boxes since they first started. I think there might have been 2-3 boxes I wasn’t too fond off but I have grown a collection of awesome precuts, tools and notions galore. You can’t always please everyone. This box is the best priced one on the market. Last month we got the ruby red olfa rotary cutter. I’ll always remain a fan 😁
I agree as well Stephanie….with one exception. The pattern that was a couch or chair I didn’t like and will not use!
I agree with you Stephanie
I agree Stephanie! You make some excellent points.
Probably using the new Kona color of the year: Splash!!
fingers crossed for Kate Spain’s Bungalow fabric? or a mini pineapple trim tool … well what does it matter … the surprise is fun!!!
I never guess these correct….a pineapple ruler would be sweet! I have never made a pineapple block so that would be fun! 🍍
Possibly the Pineapple Farm Quilt Pattern with bright fabrics to match and the Fruit Salad Sew Simple Shapes Templates by Lori Holt!!
Me I don’t know? But if it is a ruler I hope it’s Creative Grid
yep has to be something pineapple but just what. Hope I’ve only ordered 1 this time too….oops
Could it be Lori Holt’s fruit salad and Farm Girl vintage fabric ?Whatever it is I will LOVE it!
Love to see a pattern for pineapple wallhanging for my back door😃
Sunnyside Up Collection by Moda, pineapple pattern and/or tool.
I just became a member! This will be box #1! Thus, whatever it means I am excited for my surprise box to arrive. I am disappointed at fellow quilter’s remarks about canceling. It clearly stated upon signing up all boxes may not be your liking. I myself plan to donate or pass along something that I won’t use according to my likes. But I know all will be used.
You will always have those comments. I’ve had one I wasn’t that crazy about but it’s in my quilting room! If I find someone I think will enjoy it Iwill pass it along to them… why not? Most of the time I’ve found I either LOVE or at least LIKE the items. I am of the mind of you can always use another “insert favorite sewing notion/s here”, there is no such thing as too many! I plan to Enjoy the excitement until I don’t anymore and stop subscribing, you know?
I was on the fence about cancelling anyway. I have received this for seven or eight months now and have liked less than more and haven’t been truly wild about any of them. I do understand that you can’t please everyone and that it seems like I am in a minority when most people truly seem to be thrilled with what comes in the box. I do not, however, agree that it is about the surprise. I have signed up for the fat quarter box because for me my main goal is building my fabric options.
Karen — There are subscription boxes aimed specifically for just fabric. Maybe one of the those would be more to your liking? I’m a new quilter, so Sew Sampler seemed like the best option for me at a reasonable cost.
I’m not sure, but whatever it is (be it a pineapple ruler, fabric, brightly colored something or another) it’s something different from what I already own so I am really excited for my box!!!
I’m guessing it might be Orchard fabric by April Rosenthal !? Whatever it is, I know we will LOVE it!!
Must be something with pineapple.
I am kind of tired of all the kitzy stuff.
Maybe next month some batik or pretty floral, .I am not a fan of tiny little prints.
I am thinking something along the lines of apples, as in an apple core quilt pattern.
Maybe something with pineapple.
You are sending us all on an all expense paid trip to Hawaii!!!
I LUV my Sew Sampler box surprises! The Debbie Downers that post negativity on here stick out like sore thumbs and sound childish. My guess is pineapple block something or other and I can’t wait! Maybe the sunglasses are the green color value glasses.
Something with sunflowers
They’ve just posted the new Kona color of the year…it’s called Splash, and is a pretty and bright aqua
Fruit salad templates
With some fruity fabric
I will be in heaven
maybe a seam ripper to cut the pineapple lol I don’t have a clue send it already
Maybe Hawaiian pattern, with batiks????
Cherries? Love love last month’s Ruby red Olfa cutter!
Blue Hawaiian Bali Poppy? Sunglasses, Pineapple, says Hawaii to me…
I am excited to receive anything in spring colors! My name is Debbie and I am defiantly not a Downer! Bee ☺
Hope it is some Sunnyside Up by Corey Yoder. I love he floral prints.
That would be great, I just bought some fat quarters of it at a local quilt shop. I could do Sunnyside up and a pineapple ruler with a pattern.
Ooohhh Sunnyside Up would be so awesome!!!
That would be great, I just bought some fat quarters of it at a local quilt shop. I could do Sunnyside up and a pineapple ruler with a pattern.
I think it’s a reference to Pineapple Grove Handmaid Luxury Hand Cream by Soak.
I love the sew sampler surprises It’s like Christmas once every month. I just gave my Mom a pineapple ruler she has always wanted to make a spring quilt for her bed out of the pineapple block, she is almost finished and loves the ruler. So hoping it’s a pineapple ruler for myself.
A pineapple wall hanging.
I don’t have a clue but I, like a previous comment will love it! I really like the surprise of it and FQS has always given me items that I may not have picked or thought of. It gets you out of your comfort zone and opens up new ideas. Don’t stop doing what you do!
I am new to receiving sew boxes so I am stumped but my guess is a small jelly roll with a fruit pattern.
Looking through the patterns I’m going to say its Pineapple Party Quilt by Swirly Girls designs,,,very bright colors almost looks shiny, but I have never gotten these right and love my boxes because I love surprises
I’m guessing the 3 oz. Pineapple Grove Flatter spray and maybe some of Kate Spains Bungalow fabric. The Pineapple Party Pattern by Swirly Girls would be fun too! 🙂
Betty’s Lunchonette fabric has pineapples in it. Or Creative Grids mini-pineapple template.
Wow! Kimberly is taking us all to Hawaii! Nice!
The pineapple is a symbol of welcome and hospitality. If the February box contains anything dealing with a pineapple I’ll be very happy. It would be nice to make a small wall hanging and nail it somewhere close to my front door.
I have 3 pineapple projects going currently, and I have both rulers. I’m really hoping for something bright and fun, without pineapples. Of course, the fabric could be used for other things.
Ive been very disappointed with the fabrics that were sent all last year with an exception of a couple of mo.s.So, im hoping for better fabric. not looking forward to a pineapple template.Elizabeth Hartman pattern would be nice.
I am hoping it is a pineapple ruler. I would love learning how to make the pineapple block.
I hope it’s a pineapple ruler and some funshine fabric to make a mini pineapple quilt. But whatever it is I LOVE receiving my monthly Sew Sampler box!
Could it be Orange Peel?
I really enjoyed reading all of your comments and guesses. I love the element of surprise and really look forward to this each month. Like so many of you, I love challenging myself with new techniques that I would not normally pick for myself. If by some chance you do not like the items in your box, perhaps donating the item to your local sewing circle or church would make it all worth it. I’m sure someone will appreciate it. Thanks FQS…. LOVE this community!
Getting excited! The creative grids pineapple ruler would be awesome! 😎
Betty’s luncheonette and maybe flatter spray.
I have never worked with the pineapple ruler. So that would be nice.
How about a pineapple purse/carry all.
Betty’s Luncheonette fabric with a Violet Craft project featuring fruit/pineapples?
This will be my first box too. So looking forward to getting a surprise. Since I don’t know what has “gone before” I cannot even hazard a guess.
I’m thinking that it will be the kona color of the year Splash, like the strip behind the pineapple and maybe a pineapple ruler and other little themed things
I cannot wait. This is my first box.
I was thinking the same.
It’s so interesting to read everyone’s guesses…I have no idea, but I know I’ll enjoy it, based on past boxes!
Ready for it. I always enjoy my blue box.
Thank you to Kimberly for encouraging us to make things our way. So so refreshing!!
Today I showed my boxes from Dec. and Jan. to my quilt guild most of whom had never heard of this before. The ladies were excited to see my surprizes and are going to sign up for them!
Wonderful! Thanks for sharing us with your fellow quilters.
Is it the Sunshine pin set from Just Another Button Company, Lemon Meringue Quilt Pattern by Coriander Quilts, and something from Corey Yoder’s Sunnyside Up collection?
Are you talking about these pins? https://www.fatquartershop.com/sunshine-pin-mini-3-ct
Yes, those are the ones.
Some Allison glass fabric
Ya I was thinking Betty’s Luncheon too!!
I got mine today and love it! Love the fabrics and pattern.
Got my February Sew Sampler Box and I love it. Can’t wait to use the paper that is in it. Can’t say what kind of paper because I would be giving away too much information. Love every thing in it.
You got it already?!? Lucky you.
Sunglasses, fruity, pineapple… Maybe a beach bag/tote pattern with some fun fabric? Pineapple ruler? Can’t wait to get it in the mail!
All I’ve gotten today is “label created, not yet in system” from the USPS when I tried to track my package. First email saying my order has shipped was yesterday.
Got my box today love all items, can use everything in the box. So Excited.
This is so much fun but it is so dangerous! When I see your guesses about possible fabrics I looked them up and immediately think I have to have them! Kate Spain’s new Christmas collection and anything Kaffe Clasics are
my favorites but I really hope it is Splash! Love my FQS Sew Sampler!
Hoping yellow fabric & a pineapple Quilt pattern and or pineapple quilt ruler? Fingers crossed!
Got mine today, better than you can imagine…I love it! Goodies and useful things…my first box, so glad I signed up for this!
Love, love, love my box and everything in it!! Thanks for the coupons as well!!
Now I am excited again….but I know mine will take two weeks to get to me…..
I just LOVE what’s in the box. I get my imagination going on what it could or might be.
Thank you fat quarter shop! Love it!😍
We’re getting a pineapple salad. Lol
My Sew Sampler box came today! I LOVE it!!!!
Thank you for such a great package! I will be
learning something new from it!
I never have a clue but I like it that way!
Pineapple Quilt Block Foundation Paper
How about SUN prints by Alison GLASS? Wouldn’t mind a Creative Grids Pineapple Ruler. It’s one of the few I don’t have. 😉
This will be my very first box so I am so anxious to get it. I know I will love it all. I was late in signing up so missed the first box that had so many things in it I would have loved.
My guess is an ENAMELED PIN
Orchard fabric by April Rosenthal?
I love this month’s box!!! I won’t give any spoilers but I really love it!!! Just got it today
Great box! Very happy with everything in it!
My first box and I am very pleased with it!!! Thank you FQS!
Just received my sampler box today. No spoiler from me, just another happy sewist. Thank you!
I usually love my Sew Sampler Box, really I do. But this fabric, no thank you. The only thing That I know I will use this month is the barn block pattern. Anyone want my charm packs and foundation paper? I don’t want them to go to waste so I will drop in the mail and even pay for the cost of shipping.
I missed out on this one, though I called and emailed I was told they were sold out, so if you really want to part with it, I’ll be happy to buy it from you. I’m in Tucson, Arizona. Where are you? I’m in the stitch squared, and face book.
Seriously?! If you’ve had no other takers…
Like the seam ripper and ruler. I do have lots and lots of small rulers seems to kinda repeat the rulers. I have boxed up all the fabric and will donate to senior center quilters. May try the pineapple just to see how it works.
This is my very first sew sampler box. I’m a new quilter with my 12 year old daughter (we just started in November when we got a sewing machine). We’d love to have the extra fabric if you’re willing to give it away. My daughter saw the fabrics, and wanted us to make a quilt for her room. Thank you
8832 NE 144TH ST, Kirkland Wa 98034
Oh my gosh I’m glad you can use it. I will drop it in the mail tomorrow. Happy quilting!
Got my box today! Don’t want to spoil it for those who haven’t gotten it yet. Just wanted to let y’all know …love it!
Thank you so much. I was going to leave my email (I don’t mind paying shipping), but it kept saying my comment was spam. If you wanted to provide pay pal information in the package, I’ll reimburse you
Great box! I love the fabrics and everything else!!!!!
I just love getting this box every month! However, I’m disappointed with this month. Just not my style… but it brings me happiness to see others so happy with it!
Received my box today. The fabric will become a gift for someone. I might use the tool. The rest was OK – I will gift those items to others.
Thrilled with the box. Different fabric style, block, and technique for me, so I’ll learn a lot of new things this month. Thanks!
My box was delivered today. I love the box. I have made the pineapple pattern before. Really makes a beautiful quilt. Thank you, it’s a great kit.
BEST BOX EVER !!! Love the pattern, can’t wait to try it, I’ve never made the pineapple pattern. Love the charm SQUARES, yes more than one…and the tool is sooooo handy. THANK YOU!
Loved my 1st box from February! Thanks so much. Love the paper piece ruler, I have the one without the edge to turn the paper over,I had to find a straight edge to do that part so I was thrilled to get the new PPort ruler. Love bright fabrics for spring. Going do do wallhanging to hang on the wall in the Spring other use for a table topper!
So glad you’re enjoying it Rhonda! Welcome to the Sew Sampler club!
