Believe it or not, this 4″ square ruler by Tula Pink is backed by a bit of magic, or at least a magical creature. Infused with a pink tint, this ruler features easy-to-read black 1/8″ markings and a non-slip backing in the shape of a unicorn! The compact size is wonderful for trimming up small pieces like charm squares and 2 1/2″ strips.

With each block, we hope to leave you sew inspired to make good things happen in your heart and surroundings, to cultivate your own personal garden of good.

  1. As I live in Australia, it takes a while for the box to arrive. I love to see the big reveal, even before it gets here. Now I know what to look forward to. The box always has useful things in it, and pretty fabric. I have made many of the projects, but will admit to keeping those boxes lined up for when I’m looking for an idea of what to do. Everything I need is always right there.

    1. I’d like to pause as well. I don’t even sew/quilt much but love the boxes. Does any one know how to do this?

  2. Love all my Sew Sampler boxes! I appreciate all the FQS does for us with our surprises each month. Thank you!!@

  3. This was a very nice box, thank you for the new products. Really enjoyed the fabric great colors and the pattern. The finger tips I have used several times and didn’t know existed.

  4. Really enjoyed this box. The fabric was beautiful and all the notions selection was terrific! I was extremely happy to see the Quilter tips, I just started to play with free motion quilting and quickly realized I need some extra “grip”, they worked great and I like them better than using the quilting gloves. They will be much more comfortable to work with this summer than gloves.

  5. I love the boxes and the finger tips were awesome. Just miss getting a spool of thread. No complaints though.

  6. Were currently renovating and my sewing room is all boxed up. The boxes keep me fully engaged in Quilting and each box represents a project I look forward to completing when the Reno is complete and my room is all set up to go. 😊

  7. This is my 4th month to participate and I have to say, these are the BEST!!!! I have not been disappointed. Keep doing whst you do. They are fabulous!!!

  8. Best box yet! I was a bit nervous when I thought unicorns were playing a role in the box, but I loved every single item. Usually there are one or two things I donate as door prizes for a quilt retreat or guild meeting, but not in this box. I am keeping every single item and can’t wait for some free time to make the star!

  9. Love the box! So glad it was Pinkervile, love that fabric group. Planning on ordering the Goodness Grows kit. As someone who works in Product Management (creating a new product & getting it to market), I can really appreciate the effort that goes into these little boxes. Thank you FQS, I look forward to my box every month!

  10. I have read complaints in the past, disappointment from some. My first thought was why? 1. Surely you like something in the box? And what you may not like, or all ready have you can gift, donate to a sewing group at homeless shelters,or give to your local guild for door prizes or part of a quilting raffle project. I collect mine and put a quilting basket together for my local school raffle which provides funds for students who cannot afford field work, or activities. 2. You have a choice. Instead of being rude you have the choice – cancel and let the staff know directly and privately what you were expecting and/or continue to receive it use what you like and share the rest. I want to thank you for the time, work, and creative energy you put in these boxes. I have been down recouping from an injury that is fighting me all the way. These boxes give me a little walk into a quilt store – touching the fabric, oooing over the new notions and tools and refueling my desire to quilt. I hope to be in there soon. My husband even says this box has given me such a punch of joy that even if I were to never be able to get back to it (which will not happen) he would not cancel it as it has been such a blessing to me. Thank You!!

    1. I agree. I have gifted parts of previous boxes to some of my crafty friends, some who don’t even quilt. They are so thrilled to receive a notion or charm pack, or pattern. Some have never considered quilted but with a pattern and fabric to start a project I have introduced someone to the wonderful world of quilting or at least sewing.

  11. I have loved every box I get!!!! It’s like Christmas for me!!!

    1. I completely agree with Sherry. If I get anything I already have it goes into a box to gift to someone. I haven’t made all of my projects but plan on using what I get. I love my Sew Sampler Boxes!

  12. I wait impatiently until I get my box. It is a joy to me. I find the value for price is incredible. So many things to see and projects to make.i wish you a happy Birthday and keep up the good work.

  13. This Confetti Box was my first one ever and I am thrilled to pieces! I can’t hardly wait to see what’s in store for the next year!

  14. Just when I think The Sampler Box can’t get any better each month the contents are even better than previous boxes! Wow! Kimberly this box was quite a celebration/gift & the best ever!I feel like it’s my birthday, also & thank you so much for all the wonderful/beautiful surprises!

  15. I’m fairly new to quilting so the boxes expose me to things I never knew existed and can see how they would be handy. I am saving the things that I know I won’t use to be gifted to others. I like the gift basket idea!

  16. I have been with this program since its inception. I love the boxes I receive but I have to say, being the Tula Pink fanatic that I am, this month’s box stole my heart! I can’t say enough about the pleasure and excitement I get every month from you all. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  17. I want to know the fabric requirements for the Goodness Grows quilt. I do not want to buy the kit for the reason I have to much fabric and I need to down size things, so I want to use my stash up. Otherwise I like the boxes every month.

  18. Everything about this box is fabulous, but I’m particularly excited about Goodness Grows. I’ve already used the fabric collection for another quilt, but I love it so much that I’m tickled to have another project that uses it!

  19. I agree with Sherri also. Unfortunately I had to stop getting my boxes. I miss it and hope to start it up again sometime in the future. One of the months I got a blue and white jellyroll that I didn’t care for but added some red to it for a Quilt of Valor for my guild that’s very active with South Carolina Quilts of Valor. Win Win in my book!
