  1. I love, love, love this box this month … especially with the fun and cute bubblegum kisses quilt. I also love that I didn’t need to order extras to finish.

    1. I love this box. What a great value. The fabric the pattern the Notions are off the hook. I look forward to receiving my box every month. Thank you for making me a better quilter. I enjoy the sampler box tutorial on how to make the block can’t wait to make it.

  2. Love it all! Although I’ve never been disappointed since I started getting these over a year ago …

    Thanks for the great work you do … every month is an absolute delight!

  3. I love every single item in this months box. I am also very happy to receive yardage which is much more useful to me than all the precuts from the past.

    My only negative is PLEASE change the packing tape as it rips off all the polka dots and leaves an ugly brown stripe in the area you would actually display. At least with the clear tape you can leave it on.

    Thank you FQS

  4. Love all of the sampler boxes but this was my favorite by far. Thank you!!

  5. Absolutely the best box yet! Love all things Lori Holt and Riley Blake!

  6. I love this months box! It’s great to have a complete project ad the tools to go with it. I would love to get a box like this more ofte, but not every month as i have really enjoyed the mix of items we have received i the past. Keep up the great work.

  7. Definitely in my top favorite…..everything you need. And that ribbon? Adorable. Can’t wait until next month.

  8. I love the box this month and every month. Lori Holt is one of my favorites. Thank you

  9. I simply loved this June box. It was great to have everything we need to start the quilt pattern included in the box. Previous months, we didn’t have the background so we would have to order from you and wait a few days before starting the great projects in each month’s box. By far this is the best box yet. Thank you so much. Plus I ordered the free Ruler and already have it.

  10. Beautiful fabrics. The ribbon is super cute. And I really liked the ruler provided to use to make the quilt. Great sampler box!

  11. This month’s box was one of my favourites! Very fabulous! Having the cute pattern plus matching charm pack, finishing kit and even ruler is wonderful! I looooove it! Am already about sewing… The needle keeper and Lori Holt block pattern is great too! Thank you! 😊

  12. I almost have the bubble gum quilt done. Love it. And love my box.

  13. Oh my gosh…..again, this box that comes to my door each month, just makes my day! I love this one! I love all of them, they are all unique in their own way….that’s what I love about them. That’s what makes them so special! I love you FQS for putting so much thought into these boxes for us! This definitely shows in each and every one.

  14. It was the best sunshine on such a rainy day! I actually cried p, I was so happy! Thank you for this wonderful box this month!

  15. This was a wonderful box. I especially like the fact that the fabric and pattern was included. Thanks!

  16. I loved our wonderful box this month. It’s so much fun getting everything to make a quilt top. Bravo Fat Quarter Shop!!!

  17. I have loved every single box that I’ve received since the beginning of this program! It is especially nice this month because it contains a complete project.

  18. This has been my best box to date!! Love the whole thing and can’t wait to try the project.

  19. Another wonderful box. I really appreciate that there is enough fabric to complete the project. It is a lovely design. I look forward to these monthly treats and have not been disappointed. Even my husband is impressed with the contents.( and he is totally not into sewing/quilting😊). Thank-you, Ann

  20. Great box, it is probably one of the best…there was another one I liked equally as well. The needle keeper I will pass on to a friend as I already have one from years ago when I did counted cross stitch…never did like it, though. Hopefully, others don’t agree with me. Always looks forward to your boxes, they are presents to myself as I am always surprised.

  21. This was my third box, and I have loved every one of them! I belonged to another quilt box of the month for two months, and I always was disappointed with it. Thank you Fat Quarter Shop!

  22. My favorite box. I love the Lori Holt fabric and the fact that I can make a complete project without ordering extra fabric. Also, love all the accessories. Thank you, Fat Quarter Shop! Your boxes never disappoint.

  23. I was intrigued by the threaded needle holder and had no clue how to use it! I watched the video and now I am sure I will be using this until it is absolutely worn out! I would have never known about this if I didn’t get the Sew Sampler boxes! I love getting these boxes…it’s like my birthday every month!

  24. This was a beautiful choice for summer and the name is so cute, it was nice to have all the products to finish the quilt. Enjoy receiving a surprise every month, keep up the great work.

    1. Jane, we will get the right card to you ASAP. THanks for letting us know, and don’t hesitate to let us know if you ever think something is amiss with your box.

  25. Like most everyone else, I must say that this is my favorite box…although I have thoroughly enjoyed every single one since the beginning! If I get an accessory I already have then it is fun to share it wit a quilter buddy! I eagerly await my box each month! Really loved having all the pieces for a project!

  26. I so look forward to my box each month. They just keep getting better and better.

  27. I realize Fat Quarter Shop is a business and that the boxes are at face value a business tool but please realize that to your customers they are so very much more. Of course there is the element of surprise, so it is in a way like receiving a present. You are giving us so much more value for our money and as a result we do feel very much valued as a customer when we realize just what we have received. Since the boxes are designed to please aesthetically, they bring happiness and pleasure, unless of course it happens to be your least favorite color. There are very few companies who are willing to forgo a little profit in order to give their customers such a pleasant experience. In today’s hectic messy world your company is a breath of fresh air and should be commended!

  28. This is my first box after joining.
    WOW! I can’t believe the content and quailty of the goods included.The value is amazing, especially as I have to add the International shipping amaount, it is still GREAT VALUE!
