Kimberly Cuts 5 1/2″ Square Rotating Cutting Mat by Fat Quarter Shop
Sew Sampler members got it first!

Lightweight and sew cute, this mat will spin up some smiles! A foam base keeps this cutting mat from sliding on surfaces and the mat responds to light pressure and swivels smoothly. The lines are marked in 1″ increments for easy squaring up and the small size makes it perfect for small pieces.

We also have a 12 1/2″ square rotating mat available here.

Lori Holt 5″ Crazy Quilt Paper by Lori Holt

The new 5″ Crazy Quilt Paper by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet Co. has us going crazy for all the possibilities! Designed for 5″ charm squares, it is simple to use and delivers unique blocks. This crazy block technique is as addictive as it is fun and rewarding.

These needles are just the right size for quilting and detailed handiwork! With 20 pieces in sizes 3/9, you’ll be sure to find the right length for your hand sewing, whether it’s fine applique, English Paper Piecing or binding!

Crazy Daisy Quilt Pattern by Fat Quarter Shop

There’s more than meets the eye in the Crazy Daisy quilt pattern! Sweet stars are spiced up with crazy units, made with the 5″ Crazy Quilt Paper included in this month’s box.

    1. Hi there! Unfortunately this collection sold out extremely fast and we’re unable to get anymore. We’re so sorry about this.

  3. I love the rotating mat! It was the first thing I used out of the box. The package of needles was half gone, lost in shipping. I found one laying in my mailbox!

  4. Loved this box. You really hit it out of the park this time. I have my fabric ordered for Sewcialites and am ready to sew. Thanks for all your hard work

    1. I love each and every box, thank you! My dog hates those boxes because when they arrive I pay more attention to my new goodies instead of her.

  5. The rotary may is the perfect size for sitting right next to me at the machine. I may need another one for my retreat bag! When I can go! :)))

  6. These boxes are just absolutely fantastic! They are curated with such a great eye! Thank you so much!

  7. This is my first Sew Sampler box and I LOVE it!! I already have my top pieced and am waiting for my backing. The chickens are the absolute cutest!! Thank you, Kimberly and FQS, for the joy you give us all.

  8. Love. Love. Love this Sew Sampler box! The cutting mat is my favorite and, ironically, not something I would have bought for myself. I can’t wait to make the quilt.

  9. This box as my daughter told me made my heart sing for happy. Each month I really enjoy the boxes, this month hit all my likes. Thank you for the time, effort to please and energy you use putting the boxes together.

  17. I’ve never tried to purchase anything that I’ve received from my sampler box before (been receiving about 6 months or so). How do you purchase more charm packs and backing? I need 3 more to do the bigger quilt. How do you get more of the charms packs and backing? Tried to find them on the fatquarter site but couldn’t find them.

    1. Hi Carol, I’m sorry but we are sold out of Backyard Blooms now. It was a very popular collection. You might try an internet search of the fabric to find what you’re looking for.

  25. Love love love this box! The fabric, cutting mat, pattern were awesome! I liked the needles too except for the itty bitty needles, I could barely see the hole & it would probably take me an hour to thread it but I’m old too. LoL

  26. Love love love this box’s!The cutting mat is so cute I’m used it the same day it arrived.
    Thank you

  27. As Far as i’m concerned i know a hacker that actually work. So if that passes for difference between hackers and crackers then i guess so.
    I want to thank Jay for coming to my aid just about the period i was giving up.
    This is just as i promised to do. we had to come to terms i must admit after quite a difficult period and i had to promise to vouch on any platform that i’m allowed.
    If you are truly in need of ethical hacking services i personally vouch for Jay.
