  1. Well, I have been wrong when guessing these things every single time.

    But could it be a Creative Grids Mini Pineapple trim tool?

    1. 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.

  2. 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.

      1. spoke too soon… no pineapple in the fruit bowl. I have to go back to my 1st best guess… pineapple ruler… sunflower fabrics!

  3. 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! 😃

    1. Oh please tell you are a teacher, that is the first thing I noticed when reading it, and I teach so I blame that

  4. Sirena fabric collection by Jessica Swift for AGF. Not too fruity (pineapples only) and gorgeous bright summery colorways!

  5. 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 $$$

    1. I agree. I only like pineapple when it is edible and especially in a pina colada. I went in as soon as I saw the hint and cancelled my membership — I was on the fence about continuing anyway.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.”

    1. 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!

      1. 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!

      2. 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 😁

  8. fingers crossed for Kate Spain’s Bungalow fabric? or a mini pineapple trim tool … well what does it matter … the surprise is fun!!!

  9. I never guess these correct….a pineapple ruler would be sweet! I have never made a pineapple block so that would be fun! 🍍

  10. Possibly the Pineapple Farm Quilt Pattern with bright fabrics to match and the Fruit Salad Sew Simple Shapes Templates by Lori Holt!!

  11. 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.

    1. 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?

    2. 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.

      1. I did the same. Canceled the Sew Sampler and started the Moda Fat Quarter Club. Very pleased with the price and VERY happy that you see what you will get. (You are not the minority here.) I hope you enjoy your fat quarter club. I sure am glad I made the switch. No offense to the box, I just wanted more fabric.

  12. 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!!!

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. 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

  18. 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! 🙂

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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!

  23. 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!

  24. 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.

  25. 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

  26. It’s so interesting to read everyone’s guesses…I have no idea, but I know I’ll enjoy it, based on past boxes!

  27. Ready for it. I always enjoy my blue box.
    Thank you to Kimberly for encouraging us to make things our way. So so refreshing!!

  28. 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!

  29. 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?
