Wow! It would be great to win $100for fabric! I have been eyeing Moda’s Low Volume fat quarter bundles for one of the quilts in the book “Sunday Morning Quilts”.

  1. What a great opportunity. Thanks!!
    I would use it for fabric, fabric, fabric. However, being that I am the first person to leave a comment am wondering if I am at the correct spot! #1 would never be so lucky. rhoystevens at gmail dot com

  2. $100?!?! WooHoo! I would buy a FQBundle of Kona Grecian Waters for a pair of lap quilts I have in mind for my Mom and Dad…and the background yardage to go with it…the lightest aqua/blue I could find…you would help me, right? πŸ™‚
    Happy Quilting day to you folks, too!

  3. I do not know for sure because there are so many choices. I love the mini charm packs for travel because I have a small travel bag with my sewing notions which include paper pieces — hexagons are fun and easy to make. :). You carry so many lovely products it is fun to see the new items on your website each day. πŸ™‚

  4. I think I would buy some Moda April Showers, Lori Holt's Quilty fun, perhaps a few patterns and you never can go wrong with some precuts, right?

  5. I'm pretty sure I would probably get fabric. There are so many wonderful new lines coming out that have really got me drooling and thinking of new projects.

  6. I need more fabric. When you have an addiction like mine, you can never have enough. You always have just what I want.

  7. WOW!! That is a lot of loveliness! I would choose some V&Co Color Me Happy pre-cuts and Tasha Noel Simple Life/Country Girl. I'd use them to have a girls weekend. I have a couple of friends who have recently bought sewing machines and I'd love to introduce them to the satisfying art of patchwork and quilting!

  8. What a sweet give away! I would get Lori Holt's book and a fat quarter bundle of Vintage Happy. And then get started on a quilt from her book!

  9. I'd buy a fat quarter bundle! Always wanted to purchase one. So many choices though, it would take a while to decide. πŸ˜‰

    Great giveaway! Thanks for the opportunity. Happy Quilting!mix

  10. What a wonderful way to celebrate National Quilting Day. I would love to add a fat quarter bundle and some patterns to my stash. You always have the best selections of fabrics. Thanks!

  11. Dear Fat Quarter Ladies,
    Now that is way super wonderful – to win a $100. OH MY!! Yep, fabric to make a quilt for my darling husband. I would let him chose what he would like and boy, do you have lots to chose from. Anne in Colorado

  12. With $100 I would buy a complete collection in jellyroll, charm pack ,candy bites , layer cake.
    Now the problem is deciding which collection it would be,,,

  13. I would buy yardage for backing. Probably something by Bonnie & Camille. Thank you for the chance to enter! anitalahay at shaw dot ca

  14. First, I would put a bolt of Kona White in my shopping cart. I'm almost out at home! Then I would get the Botanics fat quarter bundle. It's so pretty!

  15. That would be such a difficult decision, there is so much inspiration! Maybe the April Showers or Botanics thread box or Vintage Happy. So many choices!

  16. I would buy a jelly roll as I have never yard one. There are so many great quilt designs based on jelly rolls.
    Thanks for the chance to win

  17. I would buy a fat quarter bundle of Tula Pink's new Fox Field collection in the shade colorway, yardage of some complimentary basic fabric, Le Bouquet Francais yardage in the red colorway, Simply Fat Quarters book, some thread to match the selected fabrics…

    Thanks! Linda πŸ™‚


  18. First of all I would love to get two books: Modern Bee (I love being in bees! It is so much fun and it is always so hard to chose the right block) and Simply Fat Quarters. The rest would go in fabrics. At the moment I am stashing lots of low volumes for backgrounds and I need to stash up solids. Oh how much fun it would be to just dig into fabrics!

  19. Where to begin!!! Definitely some shangri la by Jason Yenter and some Pam Kitty……a couple of charm packs to boot!! What a great way to celebrate quilt day!!!

  20. I would go bananas. Jelly rolls, charm packs fq bundles. Haha I would have a hard time narrowing my choices down. Thanks so much for the chance. I love national quilting day!!
    Tfch8184 at gmail dot com

  21. Thanks for the opportunity. I surely would buy jelly rolls or charm packs because I have never worked with precuts.

  22. I believe I would buy the kit, pattern, and finishing fabric for "Simply Stellar." The colors are favorites for one of my daughters and she would love this quilt!

  23. There is certainly more than enough fabric on my mental wish list, but after watching your video tut the other day, I need that scallop ruler and pusher-BRILLIANT!

  24. Wow…that would be like winning the quilting lottery!!!! I would spoil myself with some serious Figtree shopping!!! Thanks for the chance. Good luck to one and all.

  25. Definitely fabric for a new spring quilt. I love being able to buy a big bundle with all the colors together so I can use them in a quilt.


  26. I would spend every penny and maybe more on fat quarters. I teach beginning quilting classes, with the cost of the class, required tools and materials, I feel some aren't able to attend. I would love to be able to donate fabrics to the ones that can't afford it so that they could attend my classes, and I get to pass on and inspire others the love of quilting.

  27. I would love to buy Lori Holt's Aurifil collection of Quilty thread! Then I would be able to machine quilt some sew beautiful tops πŸ™‚

  28. Oh Wow!!! I don't know for sure how what I would use the $100 certificate!! I'm just beginning to learn about quilting! I just finished my first quilt top, a Disappearing Nine Patch!! I enjoyed making it, with lots of encouragement from experienced quilting friends! When I spread the quilt top out on the living room floor, my husband's comment was "I'm so proud of you!" Wow!!!! I've got lots of ideas, and the $100 certificate would help bring those ideas to life!! Thank you for encouraging us "beginners"!!!

  29. I would probably go for some Lori Holt fabrics to make a Great Granny quilt. So much fun!

  130. I'd start with a pattern (Bordeaux, Chantilly or Primitive Trails) and then chose the fabrics for top, backing and binding!

  142. Oh man, oh man. Well, I could use it to pay for the 2014 Mystery BOM, but that wouldn't be so much fun because I've already committed to that. I think I'd choose pre-cuts, probably layer cakes or charm squares so I could fondle as many different new fabrics as possible. Or maybe jelly rolls. Or the honey buns — never tried those. And I know I'd end up spending at least another $100 to go with it because I have a HARD, HARD, HARD time eliminating possibilities and I'd be telling myself, "well, it's really like it's half price." And, if you sold chocolates, I'd buy lots for your staff — I've often said you provide the best customer service on the web!

  143. Oh! Thanks for the giveaway! I would buy my new favorite — dessert rolls. Also some charm packs! Love the pre-cuts!!

  144. I usually buy fabric buy the yard but I am anxious to try some jelly rolls and charm packs. Your fabric and your service is awesome..Thank you for the chance to broaden my horizons. Pam

  145. I would buy owl fabric because I've been wanting to for years. Then I would probably spend oodles more since that's what I always do with a gift certificate!

  146. Fabric shopping is the only kind of shopping I like! But your shop is so amazing, it's difficult to narrow down the options that fit $100, haha. I'm loving the Moda collections you've been posting on Facebook recently! Thank you for this give away!

  147. That is a tough decision. Fabric of course, but whether to get a fat quarter bundle of one line or lots of really good blenders to add to my stash. Maybe some Kona solids. Clearly this is going to take some serious consideration if I win. I hope, I hope, I hope!!

  148. I hope I have the luck of the Irish with me on this great giveaway! I would definitely spend it on some Vintage Happy and Color Me Happy lines.. Happy is the word for spring!

  149. First of all I would be so thrilled to win $100.00. I have never won a cash prize. I would most likely spend it on thread and jelly rolls. Fat quarter. Especially batiks. My favorite. I love sewing!

  150. I would buy a layer cake, a jelly roll, and some matching thread. I'm sure I could spend more than $100!! πŸ™‚ adevenish @ comcast.net

  151. I am in love with so many lovely spring fabrics but I always need some Riley Blake lovelies!

  152. First of all I would be so thrilled to win $100.00. I have never won a cash prize. I would most likely spend it on thread and jelly rolls. Fat quarter. Especially batiks. My favorite. I love sewing!

  153. That's a nice treat! I'd probably pick a jelly roll and maybe some yardage…I'd like to try a jelly roll pattern. Thank you.

  154. I would use it to buy fat quarters of neutral fabric. I've been on a scrap quilt kick and my neutrals are diminishing quicker that all the rest.

  155. I think I would save it until this summer and buy the reprint of Heather Ross's Far Far Away fabric. Thank you for such a wonderful give-away. Guilt free fabric shopping is a real luxury. πŸ™‚

  156. For once I would spend it on thread … I love buying fabric but now I am FMQ'ing my own quilts I find I need oodles of thread and also I am starting to get fussier about what thread to choose! What a fab giveaway x

  157. Wow!!! I would choose some fabric, new tula pink, april showers and new v&Co Line and aurifil thread. I fell in love with this thread a few month ago and would love to hav some more!! Best Barbara

  158. Oh my goodness! $100 to spend any way I want at FQS? Sounds like heaven to me! I'm always looking for notions and accessories to make my quilting easier. Definitely some Aurifil thread included, too. And precuts, as many as I could. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  159. HI!!!! One hundred dollars in fabric fabric fabric!!!! I would love to have some April Showers!!!! I am getting ready to do a triangle quilt along and need some blues!!! So more fabric!!!! It would be so fun to pick out $100 in fabric!!! Thanks for the fun!!!

  160. I would get a new FQB and threads to match. But I would pick a set that I would not normally buy. Something different, to try something new.

  161. Oh Wow!!! I don't know for sure how what I would use the $100 certificate!! I'm just beginning to learn about quilting! I just finished my first quilt top, a Disappearing Nine Patch!! I enjoyed making it, with lots of encouragement from experienced quilting friends! When I spread the quilt top out on the living room floor, my husband's comment was "I'm so proud of you!" Wow!!!! I've got lots of ideas, and the $100 certificate would help bring those ideas to life!! Thank you for encouraging us "beginners"!!! OOPS! First time I hit "Annonymous" on my post!

  162. I think I'd get some Fox Field, maybe some of the green prints from the new V & co line and I love that Vintage Happy print with the text and drawings and maybe some April Showers and, and, and… πŸ™‚

  163. I would love a Fat Quarter Bundle of Solids. I really need some of these. Or maybe some fabric to go with Lori's Granny Square Book.

  164. I recently used a collection of Batiks for the first time …. if I were to win one of these GC's I would definitely buy a collection of Batiks. Thaks for the opportunity to win and happy Quilting Day to you all at FQS.

  165. I would like to do a Bargello quilt, so would look at some strips just recently ordered for first time from FQS great service, couldn't believe how fast it arrived.

  166. I would buy a jelly roll and some charm packs. I love the little but sweet collections! I'm celebrating NQD by finishing the beast of a quilt today!

  167. That would be like Christmas! I'd love to pick out a couple of brand new jelly rolls and maybe a new book. I could add more projects to my "want to make list".

  168. I would love to buy a bunch of pre-cuts! Jelly rolls are something I've been itching to get my hands on, but haven't found the right line yet for the project I have in mind. So, I'd probably get a couple of those and maybe some FQs or fabric by the yard. πŸ™‚ Thanks!

  169. As I seem to always buy precuts I think I would use it to buy some yardage of two or three of my favourite fabrics.

  170. I'd start with some Kona yardage in several different greens for a quilt for my godson who is graduating from high school this year.

  171. Pretty simple for me. Although not too keen on last season's showing, Downton Abby all the way. I have great hopes for season 5!!!!I would purchase the duchess bag kit, the Sybil fat quarter bundle, and the topaz Marie Antoinette bundle as well.

  172. Happy Quilting Day to the Fat Quarter Shop….you make quilting so much fun with all of the great fabric you have! And that is exactly what I would get if I am so lucky to win!!


  173. Oh my, I'd probably lose my mind trying to choose between new lines by Judie Rothermel, Jo Morton, and/or Barbara Brackman. What a dream-come-true this would be! Oh dear, and you have quite a collection of the Historical Blenders line…

  174. I think I would get a fat quarter bundle, the problem would be deciding which one! What a fun problem to have. Thank you for the chance to win.

  175. Who couldn't use more fabric!! I have decided instead of everyone fighting over my stash when I die I'm taking it with me! it will be one heck of a cremation don't you think! πŸ™‚
    You know you're a quilter when you carry around more pictures of your quilts than your kids!

  176. Oh what to buy! I am running a little low on bight solids right now. I am sure I can put it to good use on a number of things lol!

  177. All those delicious lines out there make it difficult to choose!

    I think I would have to go for the pattern and fabric to make the Night Sky quilt by Jaybird Quilts. I just can't keep my eyes off it!

  178. I've seen so many pretty lines come out lately, that I'd choose some charm packs of these new lines. And thread. I always need thread!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  179. Window shopping with hopes of winning $100 was so much fun. After browsing The Fat Quarter shop my choices were a toss-up between the Dahlia A Quilter’s Garden Fat Quarter Bundle, and the In Full Plume (love the pun) Neutral Fat Quarter Bundle, plus the Quilty Fun Book by Lori Holt! Thank what a great way to spend on a sunny, but cold, Saturday morning.

  180. Last summer I made wedding quilts, this summer I need to make baby quilts! A gift certificate would really help out!

  181. I would love gift certificates to gift to friends who have desire and skill but not too many financial resources. That would truly be awesome!

    Happy day to all! Maria Call

  182. Until something speaks to me, you know that whisper? "Take me home." This is usually followed by an ear worm – mi, mi, ME,ME,ME,ME,ME!!

    Then I'll know what to purchase with "found" money or gift certificate. Usually, It's something spectacular for a newly conceived project. A project instantaneously conceived when I see a fabric, jelly roll or remnant.

  183. I like so many others would buy a big tall fat quarter bundle. The hard part would be deciding which one. Happy Quilting Day indeed!

  184. After I touched all the fabrics I was interested in, I would make a final decision of blues for my blue and white quilt that has been on my To Do list for a while πŸ™‚

  185. I would buy fat quarters to make quilts for my 2 grandaughters who are moving into a new house. I love 2 sisters Hubba Hubba and so they!

  186. I would totally hit up some mini charm packs and a few notions, I need more needles and a few rulers would make my life easier. πŸ™‚

  187. Oh let me count the ways .
    Just like 99.999% of all quilters I have projects that are not yet completed, and Nope rather than getting them. Finished with the fabric I'm in need of , I would have to get some of those new beautiful Spring lines that have recently come out , and to top it off , some newAurifil thread to match some of those fabrics,
    Of course I'll have to add extra cash in after making this purchase, but it would be a wonderful way to start off the week that's for sure

  188. I would get some of Chance of Flowers to make a quilt for the bed my goddaughter sleeps in when she spends the night with us, and a fat quarter bundle of Smithsonian space shuttle fabric for my husband. For National Quilting Day, I'm going to spend a some time hand-quilting a piece I've been working on that's inspired by quilts from the 1500's.

  189. I would buy fabric and more fabric, fat quarters. Some for fun and some for my cousin who is making blankets for low income families with children/babies.

  190. I am taking a class at my LQS, the Park Bench Block of the Month and I would spend this gift certificate on fabric for that quilt, still haven't decided what fabric, but your shop has all my favorites!! Thanks for the opportunity!

  191. I have so many quilting projects dancing around in my head it would be hard to know where to start…but start I would! I would love the gift certificate!

  192. What would I buy with the FQS certificate??? Oh the possibilities…what to choose first??? Since we're new grandparents (Feb.) and another one arriving mid Sept., I'm in the baby theme mode. Love the new Quick Points Scallop Rulers and then an old childhood book favorite of mine and my daughter's is The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Would love some of that fabric or also the Brown Bear, being from Alaska we can't resist anything with bears.

  193. I would probably buy fabric. I have so many ideas in my head but I need a lot more fabric do turn them into reality. Thank you for the chance to win!

  194. If I won I would spend it on Fig Tree fabric but today I am cutting and cutting fabrics, preparing for next weekend wich will be spent with quilting friends in a cottage in the country- and we even have one coming from UK to Iceland to join us ! It doesnt get any better !

  195. What a wonderful way to celebrate National Quilting Day. I would love to add a fat quarter bundle and some patterns to my stash. You always have the best selections of fabrics. Thanks!

  196. I'd probably choose a fat eighth bundle by Me & My Sister Designs, or a layer cake and jelly roll. There are so many temptations, it would be hard to decide!

  197. Fabric, fabric, yes! Fabric! My stash of solids is severely depleted right now, and then there are all the wonderful new prints, like April Showers, Bee My Honey and Mirabelle. It would be hard to choose, but so much fun! You'll be making three quilters so very happy!

  198. Happy Worldwide Quilting Day! I will be spending time in my little sewing room with projects I was working on at my retreat last week. My two helper kitties will keep me company. I would buy FQ's of April Showers to sew during the month of April. Thanks for a wonderful place to shop.

  199. I would love to make the Charm pack Cherry pattern I received in my last order! So many patterns, so little time! Lol.

  200. fabricfabricfabric&morefabric:) why? because every new fabric you display I want!*!*!*!* the problem will be narrowing the choices! Happy Quilting Day!!!

  201. Thanks for the chance at a great giveaway. I would spend it on a bundle of Honeysweet and a new ruler, mine is just about worn out! Thanks again for the chance. mercidesign at gmail dot com

  202. i'd buy fabrics —- so many beautiful ones to choose from, but fun to finally choose!

  203. Wow $100 gift voucher. I would love the bundles of FQ Kona Cotton Solids. Just love the colours and oh so difficult to find in Australia. Thank you for this opportunity.

  204. I would love to spend $100 on fabric or a fat quarter bundle that I want. Thank you for the opportunity to win. I love The Fat Quarter Shop!!!

  205. I would live to try a pattern! I recently taught myself to quilt with books, blogs, and videos and simple patterns but have not done any paper piecing yet. Would love to do a star quilt or beach cottages or something cool with batiks!

  206. I am a new quilter so I would spend the $100 on a little of everything. I do not have any Jelly Rolls yet and would love to add to my stash.

  207. I would love to buy a large scrap bag. I like the surprises I get when digging into one. Then I would buy fat quarter bundle April Showers. Thank you for the chance to be a part of this give away.

  208. I would use your big fat giveaway to buy some big fat quarters to make a big fat quilt πŸ™‚ Thank you for the big fat chance!

  209. A generous giveaway! I would use it to build up my pathetic stash, probably with some kona solids, and a new blade for my rotary cutter. πŸ™‚

  210. I would buy some fabric to make my 8 year old a new quilt, she has decided she wants her room in blue instead of purple =)

  211. Some new rulers would definitely be on my list; bloc-loc and a scallop ruler would be great. Then, the rest I would be used to by blender fabrics πŸ™‚

    For the love of fabric!

  212. Thank you for this opportunity! I would probably spend it to get fabric to go with my "Bee Mine" charm squares for a quilt for my daughter and son-in-law.
