  1. I absolutely loved my May box. The charm squares and table runner pattern really made this one feel like Christmas. The buttons are super cute. I am looking forward to using them on some of my Splendid Sampler blocks. I have found myself using my April goodies a lot in the past month, so I know I'll use the May surprises (tweezers, bobbinis) even though I didn't even know I needed them! Already looking forward to June!

  2. The May box did not disappoint! I especially like the Bobbini bobbin holders. I have two other types of bobbin holders, but absolutely love these! I have several patchwork Christmas stocking to make and think I will use the charm packs for the stockings instead of the table runner, will use some of my stash of Christmas fabric for the table runner.

  3. The May box was a smash! Super value for the money and not so much stuff that it feels overwhelming! Just like a present as every order from fat quarter shop is!

  4. What a fabulous box for May! I am enjoying everything, especially those bobbini bobbin holders! Thank you so much for the thought that went into this selection.

  5. I loved the first month's box but think I love this month's box even more. I especially love the bobbin holders. Those are awesome!

  6. These are better than Christmas! I loved both boxes! I can't wait to open my mail mid month with these arrive. Great products, fun and worth every penny! If you have not signed up for this program don't wait any longer!

  7. Is there anyway to purchase the April Sample Box, I would like to start making the blocks for a large quilt. Thanks, I love the May box.

  8. Like everyone, I love the May box! I have a pair of the tweezers, and I know how good they are. Now I have a second pair to put in my travel sewing box! And the Bobbinis are really great. I had seen them before, but decided that I didn't need them. Boy, was I wrong! I am really looking forward to the June box – you've done a great job with these so far…thank you so much!

  9. Love the May box. IF the April box is not available for purchase, is the sew sampler quilt block available?

  10. Can i purchase the April box? I just love the may box and can't wait for june!!

  11. I look forward to receiving my box. Love the charm packs and thread, and the notions are being put to good use. The ruler from my April box has become a favorite. Everything is pack with style and care.

  12. So enjoyed receiving the May Box. Missed the April but never agian. Not one thing I didn't love.

  13. My May sampler arrived.Just took five days to get here.I am really pleased with it and just wish i had got April one as well.I loved the bobbin holders and i am using the tweezers for my paper piecing.Can.t wait to see what will be in the June box.

  14. Thank you! Loving the boxes as they are so nice I can reuse for gifts, etc. Fun to be surprised. Awesome to get fabric and pattern to make something each month and love the block we need to do each month. So happy! This is my treat to myself. So thankful to get a positive boost each month. AWESOME

  15. LOVE the May box!!! Such a fabulous idea! I wish I had started in April. I know it is not available but is the block pattern available? I'd like to make the blocks each month and don't want to miss April. Thanks!!

  16. Goody for me!! Christmas comes once a month now! I am soooooo happy with the boxes so far. Why is there no mention of the mini clothespin?!! It's perfect for using Lori Holt's method of paper piecing! (instead of a paoerclip). Tutorial on her blog.
