Spring Quilt Market 2016: Friday - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Spring Quilt Market 2016: Friday

Today was full of fabric, quilty friends, and fun!  We had the best time visiting vendor booths, seeing their gorgeous new fabric collections and project samples, and chatting with the super talented designers.  We met up with “old friends” and made new ones – such fun! We also got our hands on two more brand new fabric bundles for today’s giveaway.

We started off the day at Camp Moda, and snapped a fun picture of the owner of

Moda, Mark Dunn, with his son Josh  – and Katy Perry!

Lissa Alexander, aka Moda Lissa, wasn’t able to make it to Spring Market this year in person,

so we had all the Moda designers pose with “her”.  We all miss you, Lissa!

This lovely quilt by Minick & Simpson is called Portage Lake, reserve your kit today!

Our talented and inspiring partner in the Crossroads Quilt Along fundraiser,

Joanna Figueroa, has a new collection out – Chestnut Street!

The newest collection by mother/daughter team Bonnie & Camille is

called Handmade. We can’t wait to start quilting and sewing with it!

Pat Sloan is here at Spring Market, and we love her Hometown Girl collection. It’s available now!
Edyta Sitar’s fabric collection Pumpkin Pie is delicious! 

Corey Yoder’s new fabric collection, Sundrops, is delightful!

Another talented mother/daughter duo: Sherri & Chelsi!

This beautiful collection is called Desert Bloom.


Lori Holt and Kimberly are all smiles in Lori’s Riley Blake booth!
We love the décor in Lori’s booth, and her quilts are sew cute!
Have you gotten your copy of Elea Lutz’ book Pretty Playtime, published with us at It’s Sew Emma?
We also have quilt kits available, and just started a quilt along on our blog for the Garden Fairy Sampler Quilt on the right in the photo above. Join us on Monday for the next post!
Amy Sinibaldi’s new fabric collection Playground is bright, playful and fun!
Katarina Roccella has created the most darling collection for Art Gallery Fabrics: Pandalicious!

  1. Love all the pictures from Market. I think you should include buttons and thread. Maybe in a little collectible tin.

  2. I don't know what you've included in the sampler boxes before but I'd love thread samples, fabric samples from various manufacturers (either different ones each month or several per month, or maybe samples of solids), hand quilting needles. I think sampler boxes might be hard because quilters are so individual — hand quilters, machine quilters, modern, scrappy, primitive, Civil War quilters, etc. A sample box is a great idea, though.
    –Nancy. (ndmessier @ aol.com, joyforgrace.blogspot.com)

  3. I would love to try out those alphabitties with the numbers and letters on them, a mini quilt pattern and some of those cute clips in an outrageously fun color! And I have never even seen what washi tape looks like!

  4. Although it wouldn't be exciting (unless it's part of the Tula Pink hardware line), a seam ripper would be useful. A cute pair of thread snippers or small scissors would be good too. Maybe throw in some jumbo wonder clips? Thanks for posting so many Quilt Market photos. It's a great way for those of us not in the industry to live vicariously and dream about all the stunning new fabric! Thanks too for the giveaway. bwwedprep(at)yahoo(dot)com

  5. A sew sampler subscription box could include a free pattern page for using a range of pre-cuts such as charm squares, a tool such as a template to give you perfect flying geese or a sample of your favourite applique paper as there is now different thicknesses available. (Not everyone lives close to a shop to see what is out there – I do a lot of looking online to find out what is new.)
    Thanks for the opportunity to take part in your competition.

  6. Fabrics would be my favorite thing to find in the sampler box. A pattern for a bag or purse with the hardware needed. Something new and different and exciting.

  7. Small and useful helpers for sewing would be great,like rulers or templates. Fun fabric is always apreciated and I love patterns. The magnetical button in the april's box, things like this are just awesome.
    Thanks for all the pics. I love to see them!

  8. I think technique-themed boxes like applique, EPP, or even color theory would be fun. I always enjoy trying out new-to-me ways of doing something. Thanks for asking =) I really do love my first box last month and am anxiously waiting for #2!

  9. I was hoping for one of your red magnetic pin holders, don't have a great pin holder so I definitely would use this!

  10. How about some of Lori Holt's buttons? And we can truly never get enough Alphabitties or Wonder clips. Then there are scissors, floss, Aurifil, maybe some lightweight fusible….

  11. Cute scissors, aurifil thread and a mini quilt pattern–oh the list could go on and on!

  12. Some Aurifill thread (cream and grey), some Riley Blake solids (they are the BEST), little spring loaded snips that could be kept right at your sewing machine. Also, maybe a Bloc=loc HST trimming ruler: they are amazing!!!

  13. Aurifil thread, self threading needles, small scissors, mini charm packs, among other things that would be lovely to find when opening a sampler box.

  14. What I would find most interesting? How can I pick just one? From looking at the pictures, for which
    I thank you!, I would say the Aurifil thread collection and The Sample Spree!, even if
    I couldn't get any samples, just tomsee them all, how awesome!

  15. Fat quarters of French General fabric is my vote for a box item. Oh, and Clover piecing pins!
    Thanks for sharing quilt market with us

  16. i would love to see threads and bobbin holders. Can never have too many of them to organize bobbins.

  17. I would like to have a box with stuff I probably wouldn't necessarily otherwise try like triangle paper and some pattern and fabric that suits that particular triangle paper.

  18. Thread and low volume print in different shades. I've been searching for low volume prints in shades of green which are rare as hens teeth.

  19. How about different notions? From needles to the latest fabric marker or any nre gadgets that are taking the quilting world by storm

  20. I would love to see pre cuts of any of the new lines of fabrics you have shown. They are all beautiful!

  21. Self threading needles, binding clips, double sided tape and different rulers are always useful. Fabric of course. EPP and foundation piecing patterns.The list is endless

  22. My gosh, what a question to ask a quilter! Anything quilt or sewing related would make us all happy including perhaps new Aurifil thread colors, charm packs from new fabric lines, a specialty ruler and whatever else to tickle our collective fancies!

  23. Thanks for all the great pictures! I think you should include in your next Sew Sampler Box a few mini charm packs and a pattern or two for it.

  24. I think you should include some variegated Aurifil thread because I'm always intrigued by it but never buy it. Receiving it in a box like this would make the choice for me.

  25. Fabric! and some of the wonderful creative grids rulers along with specialty rulers that you've demoed on you tube like the log cabin

  26. Thanks for all the great market pictures. I doubt you would include anything in the sampler boxes we wouldn't love, but samples of the new fabric lines would be wonderful as well as any new creative grid rulers. Thanks for the giveaway.

  27. Thanks for a great market post. I think you should include fabric including some solids, Aurifil thread, the best seam ripper and a small pair of scissors.

  28. I would like to see a cute button collection included in the box. Thanks for sharing Market pics. I always look forward to it.

  29. Love seeing all the pics from market! I think you can't go wrong with Aurifil thread, creative grid rulers, and maybe a charm pack.

  30. Hopefully we will get a sample of auricular thread, one of the FQS patterns and a few more goodies.

  31. I would love to see some Zen Chic fabric, anything Jaybird Quilts, or some fat quarters of Tula Pink!!

  32. A pattern for a bag and all the hardware, like the zipper or clasp and the fusible interfacing or batting. It gives people a new project and the opportunity to try new products.

  33. You're doing a great job filling your sampler box on your own, but if you need more ideas why not ask your quilt designer friends to share some of their favorite product ideas with you. I know the May box has Lori's buttons so you could have made it all things Lori! (And maybe you did).

  34. White or gray Aurifil thread for piecing, charm packs of new fabric lines, sewing machine needles, cute scissors, and anything Bonnie and Camille.

  35. Some things we all want, but hesitate to buy. Another pair of cute scissors, thread in a wild color, glass headed pins, specialty rulers (can't have too many).

    Anything included in the box will be wonderful, I'm sure.

  36. Would love any mini pattern or anything that has a logo on it such as mods or fat quarter shop. Pins, clips, rulers or templates are great.

  37. What fun photos from Market. What to include in quilting box…zipper or two, alphabities, maybe a bag pattern.

  38. Thank you for all the market booth pictures. Love seeing all the upcoming lines and can't wait to get them! Maybe some pretty thread in the next box.

  39. I always like a quickie pattern that can be made with pre cuts. I make lots of baby quilts for charity and friends. Some new ideas for table runners that have a fresh look. I think trims are a big treat also – edgins,rick rack etc. Such a great idea.

  40. This collection is gorgeous! It would be wonderful if you included thread! It's the one thing I always forget:) Wonderful Giveaway, good luck to everyone!!

  41. I am not sure what is in the boxes as I haven't been getting them but I think everyone loves charm packages – mini or larger, little binding clips, that kind of thing. Have fun at market and would love either of those wonderful bundles that you show.

  42. a spool of your favorite aurifil thread color, a charm pack of Sundrops (LOVE that line– can't wait until it is available) and a pattern to use it, a crayola ultraclean marker(they are the best ever to mark quilting lines or seam lines– they wash away completely even after being ironed over)

  43. I love any sort of notions including buttons I also adore the mini charm packs.

    Maureen, New Zealand

  44. Fabrics would be my choice, maybe a fat quarter. Thread is also a good choice. Love the pictures from Spring Market!

  45. Thanks for all the market photos! My favorite thing is always fabric, but a good seam ripper is always helpful and maybe some thread snips or thread samples to match fabric. Thanks for the give-away!

  46. I think one or more of the shapes from Lori Holt , each sampler could have different ones. Different weights of thread, different kinds of thread, a few paper piece shapes, and of course some samples of new beautiful fabric.

  47. mini charm packs from a couple of the new collections – some of the clips used for binding (I've never gotten any), one of the plastic wraps for threads, oh shoot, just put in a free ticket to the next quilt show!!! Maybe a "lottery ticket" for a drawing the following month? So many things I want..lol…..

  48. All the new collections look wonderful. I'm really being pulled into the darker colors that give so much pop to traditional looking fabrics. Having charm/mini charm packs in the next box with a mini quilt or pillow pattern would be fun.

  49. I love all of these photos. I feel like I am right there with all of you being BFFs. All of you are so beautiful
    I would love to win a pile of fabric, you are so generous with prizes. I love all of the quilts Thank you so much for sharing your inspiration

  50. I'm always looking for a good seam ripper. Also cute tape measures. Of course rulers, fabric, fabric and then some fabric would also be nice.

  51. You all look like you're having so much fun at Quilt Market. I think the next Quilting Box should include Aurifil (everyone can always use Aurifil!) and mini charms.

  52. Loved all the pretty photos. Can only dream of how much fun it would be to attend one of these. Those clips and buttons, buttons, and more buttons!

  53. I would love to see postcards of all those beautiful designer booths…

  54. How about some of the new Moda Treat precuts and a pattern to use them. I am loving all of the great
    pictures from Market. Thanks

  55. I'm loving seeing all of the wonderful pics you are sharing on Instagram of Quilt Market. I feel like I'm there with you all! For the Sew Sampler Quilting Box, I think maybe some different weights of the Aurifil thread or Aurifloss. Also maybe small patterns of some of those wonderful pin cushions from your video's with Joanna Figueroa with a charm pack to make some of them.

  56. Your coverage of market is better than being there – I can check out everything in my pjs! Put as much as possible in the box!

  57. How about a few mini charm packs and a pattern for them? Love the mini charms. They're like candy! I'm enjoying the pictures from quilt market.

  58. I recommend including the stick on dots that go on your finger tip in place of wearing a thimble. I love them but only tried them when I got some as a free sample. I think others wold like them too if they only tried them.

  59. New sewing notions, thread, needles, samples of any kind. Love trying new things and am excited to see my first box as I missed the first one. Keep up the good work; you are doing a great job at Quilt Market keeping those of us at home informed. Thanks.

  60. A Thimble for hand binding, after all we need to finish all these wonderful projects we make!

  61. Thread, a small free pattern or tip you've gained from market, truly anything you include will be wonderful. Thanks for sharing Market with us.

  62. Thanks for posting all the pictures! I'm would like a charm pack of a new line and matching thread?

  63. I have only seen a little of what you put in that first one and it looked so fun! Some of your alphabities would be fun, some sample hand sewing needles, fabric samples are fun ;). You do great!

  64. Charm packs and mini charm packs would be great in the sampler box. There are unlimited options to make with them. Quick table runners , pot holders, and baby bibs are my favorite!!

  65. I'd love to see Kimberly's new creative grids ruler in the box, maybe one of the new pre-cuts and some aurifil thread to match.

  66. I'm forcing myself to do some paper piecing blocks from the quiltalongs I've been participating in. I'm starting to enjoy it. Anything to improve the process would be appreciated (rulers, etc.)

  67. I think it would be awesome to open up a box that had some pretty pins, threads, and a gift voucher for a pattern. A charm pack or a set of fat quarters or half-yard cuts would always be loved, too!

  68. I don't think anyone would complain about thread samples of different weight. But including a charm pack and a small template with a pattern is always fun to receive. I like to embellish my quilts with appliqués and embroidery so some ideas on that would work well.

    It will be fun to see what you come up with!

  69. Love love love seeing ALL of you at Market! Makes me think I'm there….

    What should be in your sampler box? Definitely something from TULA PINK'S new line….SLOW AND STEADY! She is my favorite designer. I just cannot help but smiles when I see her work!!

    You guys ROCK!!

  70. Love to see all the spring market photos. I think you should include some of that lovely fig tree fabric. Beautiful

  71. How about some charm packs and a new pattern to go along with them? So enjoying market with you! Thanks for all the fun photos and updates.

  72. I love seeing fabric collections, love when the box has a theme project that you can complete with most of the stuff in the box. Would love to see a few of the new buttons from the button club. Anything from Lori Holt and Joanna Figgueora.

  73. thanks for sharing all the wonderful pictures.
    Hmm how about auriful thread, cute scissors, fabric pincushion, pattern
    quilting dash lady at comcast dot net

  74. I am in LOVE with your new buttons and I think they would be perfect in the Sewing Box!!
    P.S. Love the quilt market pictures!!!

  75. Definitely the Aurifil thread in matching colors with a fun new fat quarter collection & a ruler with directions for using it to make quilt blocks.

  76. I'd like a sampler box of coordinated fabrics along with matching thread, buttons or other notions. I tend to buy fabrics that are in my comfort zone and it might push me to be more creative.

  77. how 'bout a pin cushion sampler box. fabrics (fat 8ths?). thread (aurifil of course). pins (fancy tops), hand and machine needles, and maybe a kit to make a needle book.

  78. The next quilt box should be filled with Fig Tree goodies– I am obsessed with Fig Tree and can not wait to get my hands on Chestnut Street!

  79. Looks like you're having WAY to much fun!!! Wish I was there too!!! Soooo jealous! ???? For the Sew Sampler Box,, you can never go wrong with Aurifil and a cute charm pack!

  80. I always like to try out the specialty rulers, so that's what I would want to find in one. Plus a packet of fabric of course. Buttons would be fun too.

  81. Something to try that might be a splurge such as a unique ruler or triangle paper. Then a pattern that uses it. Thread and charm packs are always welcome!
    basaran.family at rogers.com

  82. I think Aurifil thread would be a wonderful addition, along with a new pattern (particularly at this time of year!). Mini charm packs of the new lines would be wonderful as customers could more easily plan their purchases.

  83. Another creative grid ruler – maybe your 8" log cabin one. I feel that is a 'must have' tool for our sewing rooms :)! Thank you for this giveaway chance!

  84. Loving your posts, so fun. I don't know what is in your sampler boxes, may have to join to find out. If I were a member I would love patterns and thread and fabric and tools and all things quilting

  85. I think a small cutting mat, cute scissors (polka dots), different weights of Aurifil threads, some Aurifloss, a little Moda goodie that you can't usually buy, colored hoop, mini charm of upcoming fabric and one of the FQS patterns to use it, pins, creative grids ruler, Lori holt's templates, pincushion, new panel for an apron, purse, etc., stabilizer like Bosal to make a small project, zippers and pouch pattern, new Fiskars rotary cutter or scissors with the quilting pattern on them, a one yard project pattern with fabric, there is so much to choose from. Have a great time at Market! I would love to win some fabric!

  86. A frixion pen would be great, or a fun color of thread. Quilt market looks so fun!

  87. Thanks for the pics. Really is exciting to see the new lines.
    I think including clover wonder clips or other specialty notions is a fabulous idea. There are so many great notions out there.

  88. There are sew many cute patterns for little zippered bags… some bright and cheerful zippers and some coordinating fabric would be a fun project, for sure! Maybe some zig zag trim, as well!

  89. I always love special rulers, fun fabric samples and notions I might not think I need until I have tried them.

  90. I think you should include one of Jodi's quilt rulers 🙂 thank you so much for including so many fabulous photos of quilt market!

    Very excited about the new items coming in. Your photos are wonderful and I see more and more things to yearn for!

  104. The pictures a Quilt Market are awesome. These news fat quarter bundles delicious. A keep sake Moda tin for "stuff" is a great idea.
    I love Moda patterns especially free are fun. Thank you fir the opportunity to win free fabric !!

  105. I think you should include a pair of Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Scissors. They are truly the best scissors. Ever!

  106. I think including a few solids each month would be a great idea. Maybe even charm pack of a collection of solids so we can decide what colors we need yardage of.

  107. I think some sewing pins. There are so many cute ones and so many different types. I think most of us don't think about replacing our pins.

  108. I love rulers, so I think any kind of new ruler would be great! Also, I love those pins with numbers on them. Also, samples from new fabric lines would be great!

  111. i love seeing all the new quilts at the market. it looks like fun.
    I think that rulers, scissors, or new rotary cutter would be nice. I love new fabrics also. thanks for the giveaway.

  112. I think including items such as a variety of "gadgets". Such as various different scissors, thimbles and rulers. It would be great for making a quilt easier and fun to create.

  113. I'm with Margaret, who commented above, saying that a pair of Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Scissors would be the ideal addition. I was amazed when I received a pair for my birthday. They are incredible!

  114. Aurifil threads & Little House pins. I simply love your Quilt Market photos! You are each so thorough in your coverage that I feel like I'm there:)

  115. I would love a fresh, colorful spool of Aurofil thread! Any color…it will inspire a quilt just with the pretty color. I want to win the Chestnut Street fat quarter in the WORST way! Thanks for the chance. I am really enjoying all the pics from Quilt Market!

  117. I'd love to have a little package of Wonder Clips, some alphabitties, mini charm packs, a mini quilt pattern, or whatever new doo-dad has just become the Best Thing Ever.

  118. I would suggest you include some pretty zipprrs that coordinate with the new fabric lines you are seeing. So many sewers are doing smaller projects these days either kn between larfer projects or in lieu of them.

  119. Mini charm packs, aurifil thread,a Moda keepsake tin would all be wonderful additions. Thanks for sharing the great pictures from Spring Market!

  120. Oh such awesome pictures of market! Truly inspirational!!! A quick pattern charm packs and neat notion possibly for the next box

  121. I love the first box!! And you are sew lucky to be surrounded by such talent! Like another comment, my first thought is for a cute pin cushion kit. Mine has seen it's last days…lol! Looking forward to receiving the next one in a day or so. So exciting!

  122. Fabric would always be my most favorite part of the box! Charm squares, fat quarters, any size would do. My other favorite thing is rulers. It's fun to experiment with new shapes!

  123. I would love to see a mini charm pack of one of the hot new prints from market with coordinating Aurafil thread. A Creative Grids Ruler that makes special shapes or one that comes with a set of different shapes would be nice. A quilt block instruction card using the included new ruler would be cool. Now that I think of it, it would be totally awesome if the new pre-cut, new thread, new ruler and new block all coordinated! I could be marketed as the "Market Exclusive Sew Sample Subscription Sample Box"! The Sew Sample Subscription Box is a already a great deal but as a super special thank you at Christmas (December Box) or Mother's Day (May Box) you could include a special 15% site wide coupon/coupon code. I'm not sure how it could be set up to ensure that the code only worked for those names who were on the Sew Sample Subscription Member list. A seam ripper or "that purple thing" would be a nice a addition too. Oh, and of course, I would love to get those Alphabitties that are always needed 🙂 Sew looking forward to getting my new box next week! 😉

  124. How about a basic box for beginners. Square up ruler, solids and something that shows how to make basic units in a variety of sizes.

  125. I'm so new to quilting that I not sure what I would like to see, but some cute fabric and a pattern with supplies to create a cute pincushion or a mini quilt project.

  126. I think you should include those numbered pins or a nice seam ripper! (And of course a charm pack of a newly released line would be lovely!)

  127. I think you should include those numbered pins or a nice seam ripper! (And of course a charm pack of a newly released line would be lovely!)

  128. Oh! Some many beautiful colours and quilts.
    Best to have some colorful spools of thread added plus a seam ripper

  129. I would would really love to try English paper piecing with the new fabrics from moda.

  130. Thread, moda mini charm pack, seam ripper, thread snips, one of your favorite specialty rulers; the list of fun things is endless. You gals have done a great job so far!!

  131. My seam ripper and small thread snips are always running off…these could be frequent inclusions, and I, for one, would never feel I had too many!

  132. I would like to see fat quarters. Needles for sewing hexies. Different shapes for hexies. A pattern for something for a quick gift.

  133. I love seeing everyone at Quilt Market
    and I love the booths. I could be in heaven if I was there
    Love to all of you for your generosity and inspiration for us

  134. I think it would be fun if you included Little House Glass Head Pins with Tin, basting glue, solid mini charms with matching Aurifil thread and some exclusive patterns using those minis.

  135. Quilters love all sorts of notions….what about Aurifil threads, specialty rulers, jumbo clips, triangle papers, mini charms, lighted seam ripper!

  136. I always love new patterns. Thanks for the opportunity to win!
    Sandy N

  137. Alphabities would be great, they are so useful. Thanks for all of your coverage of Quilt Market – it is great to see everything.

  138. Great Market pictures. I like those Moda guys and their shirts, the ants are hilarious.

    I think you should include a pair of Snips and machine needles in the next Sew box.

  139. I think that you should have a month dedicated to "mini's" and include a mini ruler. I have been to market in the past and love all the mini rulers available.

  140. I love seeing the pictures from market. A mini charm pack of Bella Solids would be a wonderful thing to have, not to use in a quilt, but as a sample of some of the most popular colors to use as a guide. Notions are always fun also.

  141. Yowza! A sample box from The Fat Quarter Shop would be such a happy, happy thing to receive. It would be fun to see Aurafil thread, a quilt pattern and fabric samples of a new line. Throw in some Wonder clips, thread snips and needles too. And, don't forget chocolate because you know quilters love chocolate.

    Thanks for posting all the pics from Quilt Market so that we can follow along and get a little preview of what we're going to see at The Fat Quarter Shop in the coming months.

  142. I think specialty rulers are a good idea. They can prompt us to try new techniques we might not attempt otherwise. I know some are expensive, but maybe some of the smaller ones would be appropriate for the Sew Sampler boxes. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity, and have fun at Market!

  143. Fabric, of course, I think goes without saying. But a fun unique notion would be great too. Like a perfectly petite pair of purple scissors (sorry, I couldn't resist) or numbered pins, or a slip mat for your sewing machine throat….I can think of lots of things that perhaps I wouldn't necessarily think of to go and buy but would be delighted to get in a box.

  144. Hello! I would love things to be included that would help a beginning quilter. I wouldn't know what I would need so this would be so helpful! Thank you for this opportunity-the fabrics are gorgeous. I hope I can get the hang of this soon!!

  145. I would love to see a mini charm pack or a charm pack that's bright and fun from the quilt market along with a matching pattern, thread and whatever else may go with it… Perhaps an idea would be to showcase several designers in a way that has a variety of fabrics that go together to make a Moda designer quilt? Thanks again for this opportunity and thanks for showing us what's happening at the quilt market!

  146. I'd love it if you'd include a Charm Pack of any of these new Moda lines, but especially Grand Traverse Bay or Chestnut Street!

    Looks like you're all having fun hanging out with Moda Lissa!

  147. I love the surprise part of monthly boxes, but find that new tools on the market with a sample using them are really great!

  148. I think some candy squares in some of the new collections would be a real treat in your sampler boxes. And maybe a pattern to use them in a sewing accessory like a pincushion or needle book.

  149. its always fun to have new tools and gadgets and I love the fabrics from Tula Pink and lila Tueller. I am sure you will find some wonderful threads to include or a new gadget to try out.
    Thanks for the chance to win such lovely fat quarters.
    Regards from Alberta,

  150. What would I like to see in a Sampler Box? You can never have too many notions, such as pins, a seam ripper and maybe a quarter inch ruler. Lori Holt's pretty colors of new buttons, a small spool of Aurifil, perhaps to coordinate with a charm pack of a new fabric from market. And tie this in with a new pattern too!

  151. I think you should include the new little adorable Moda tins! I haven't seen one in person yet but they look delightful! Thanks for the chance to win one of these 2 fabulous collections!

  152. Big wonder clips, neutral aurifil thread, and fabric! I loved the little magnetic screwdrivers from April – things we need, but don't know exist!

  153. Always one of your new fabric lines in a precut of some sort with a pattern recommendation. Some solid fabric. I would love a Seams Sew Easy Seam Guide, a new seam ripper and one of your handy rulers!

  154. There is several of these boxes being offered so it will be a challenge to keep it different from others. But we don't have to have a box be the best….. just full of stuff we like since we are the ones actually buying the stuff. Several have mentioned the fabric, rulers, etc. I believe your choices will delight our tastes.

  155. Some of the Nightfall fabric would be a great addition. Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Circles is another great tool for appliqué.

  156. I guess you may be planning for a couple of months from now, so I would like to see a charm pack of Pumpkin Pie, matching Aurifil, buttons, Edyta's appliqués, Tulip needles, and some of thos cute little bobbin holders. You have so many fun things that we might not find in our local quilt shops. Thank you for the chance to win. The photos of the booths were fabulous!

  157. For very selfish reasons I think a seam ripper would be awesome….mine seem to disappear miraculously …I wonder if my little daughter has them all in her own sewing box…which is hidden well and only she knows where 🙂

  158. What wonderful pictures of market. Love that ya'll are having so much fun. A quilter can never get enough thread, pins, or pin cushions! (Among other things.) robinsheloratearthlinkdotnet

  159. Since new products on the market are the most fun, I think you might include the new ruler, Starburst Ruler from Creative Grids, so one could make First Blush for example. Also some new fabric from some new lines, like Chestnut Street or Pumpkin Pie, and a spool or two of Aurifil thread would be amazing. Anything to enhance like buttons or ric rac would be fun. And a new pattern is just what's needed to complete. I'd love it!!

  160. Wow, this is is fun….buttons, thread, new fabric samples from your faves, Creative Grid ruler and special quilt block that uses the ruler.
    Thanks for the great offer!
    Kathleen Mason

  161. I would love anything new you want to include. If you find a new notion or ruler or any of the new fabric collections. How fun would it be to have something the stores don't have yet.

  162. I love quilts that look complicated, but are actually easy to cut and sew! Especcially patterns i can use for Quitls of Vlaor for our Veterans!

  163. I really enjoy seeing all the booths and the fabric lines are all beautiful and so fun to see what will be in the stores. For your sampler box I think a small project with pattern, fabric and thread would be fun.

  164. I think so big rick-rack, buttons and other embellishments! Love the quilts and the fabric coming out. Can't wait to buy some.

  165. Thanks for the chance to win some beautiful fabric. I think you should include a cute zipper bag pattern with, of course, a zipper or two. Love following Quilt Market!

  166. Some really good hand sewing needles, charm pack of a new line, Lori Holt design board, pattern, marking pen, Aurifil thread, small creative grids ruler. Almost anything to help a quilter out would be appreciated.

  167. New fabric and thread is always a good idea. How about some notions like Sewline products, Creative Grid rulers, Little House pins, Alphabitties, zippers, bag hardware, or ruler twill tape….like to one wrapped around the gorgeous Moda bundles!

  168. Thanks for the awesome chance to win! I love making bags and pouches. It would be fun to get a box with a bag or pouch pattern, a zipper, and some ribbon for embellishment.

  169. For the next Sew Sampler – this would be so FUN!! – a charm pack of Joanna's new Chestnut Street Collection with a cute table runner pattern with a touch of appliqué, and maybe a tool to craft it with or some cute buttons to embellish it! A tiny tin of appliqué pins would be cute too! I LOVE your tutorials with Joanna, Kimberley!! Maybe include a cute bookmark with a photo of one or both of you stitching – autographed by the two of you? I'm inspired by seeing fellow quilters in "their space". LOVE fat quarter shop!

  170. There are so many neat notions, etc. out there, it's hard to pick just a few. A charm pack from the new lines would be nice, Aurifil thread, cute pincushion or pattern, needle pullers, buttons, trims, Peel spool huggers, applique needles, glass head pins, triangle papers, monofilament thread, triangle papers and last but not least, maybe a small seasonal kit or seasonal pattern. I have enjoyed all of the market pictures. Everybody looks like they are having a blast!

  171. what would i like to see in a sew sampler box?? hmmmm… now THAT'S an interesting question. i think i'd love to see little bundles of fabric… and a few random spools of thread. you can NEVER have enough of either of those!!! THNX for the giveaway!!

  172. I think the loc bloc rulers are the best ever and also you just can't have enough (or at least I can't) seam rippers and how about little/small magnifying glasses.

  173. Joanna of Fig Tree had a feature with her favorite notions so include some of her favorites with a charm pack and a mini pattern. Only fitting because her new line is one of your giveaways and I think it has my name on it!

  174. Aurifil! A quilter can never have too much thread. Maybe some floss to try some hand embroidery? A mini embroidery kit would be cute!! 🙂

  175. Thanks for keeping us updated on all the happenings at Quilt Market. Anything Fig Tree would be great.

  176. A charm pack and a couple of spools of thread to match, a specialty ruler, a new notion, a new mini quilt pattern, some buttons – any of these items would be welcome.

  177. Fabric, of course, as well as Aufil thread and a pattern or two. Oh, and the Alphabeties.

  178. Maybe a sampling of wools, different sizes of straight pins, or a small ruler would be nice. Thanks for the chance to own a stack of these beautiful fabrics.

  179. A little package of hexies or 6-point diamonds for EPP along with needles. Maybe a Clover yo-yo maker too. These would make nice embellishments for a quilt. Throw in a few idea pics or a small pattern for useful ideas.

  180. I think it would be fun to see a Fig Tree Quilts pincushion pattern and everything needed to make it – including matching Aurifil thread.

  181. One of the cute Moda tins, mini quilt patterns, any kind of ruler, and charm packs are always welcome at my house.

  182. Oh wauw! This is so exciting! Please keep posting these wonderful pictures. It makes us feel like we are there!
    I think you should include wonder clips in the next edition of your box. They are so very handy and I think no one ever has enough of these little 'wonders' in their supplies. So, yeah: wonder clips :).
    Thank you for the chance to win!
    cottonpaperflowers at gmail dot com

  183. There have been wonderful suggestions already! Maybe include 2-3 different new mini charms that are coming out with mini Aurifil spools to match, a ruler, those pretty scissors and a pattern for the mini charms, and a seam ripper or quilting pins. What a great package that would be!!

  184. Thank you for all of the pictures! Clover Mini Wonder Clips would be a great addition to a Quilting Box. Maybe add a gift certificate to a couple of boxes each month as an added bonus for a couple of subscribers.

  185. I would love to see an interesting ruler and a pattern (or mini pattern) that uses it! I just got my second box today, and it's even more fun than the first. Thanks!

  186. Embroidery thread or perle cotton would be nice. I am always so confused on what kind of perle cotton to use for a task, e.g. large stitch quilting so a guide would be nice as well.

  187. Oh…the possibilities are endless! You can never go wrong with Aurifil thread. And maybe some special pins & needles….& cute binding clips…..or small scissors…..or specialty rulers…..or…..marking pens…..or…..shall I continue? Lol

  188. I have loved everything in my April and May Sew Sampler Boxes! For the upcoming boxes, I think the Alphabitties would be a great item to find. Anything to help with binding would be greatly appreciated too. I tend to wait a week or two to get around to binding my projects because I struggle with it so much.

  189. So beautiful! I haven't seen the BasicGrey fabric. Did they have a booth? The colors are amazing and of course I love Chestnut Street.
    I always love random 2.5inch squares in my subscriptions or a fun little notion like pins…or maybe a snack. LOL

  190. There are two new Creative Grids rulers that would be a wonderful addition! (Starburst and 4-in-1 half square rulers) Love seeing what's new at Quilt Market!

  191. My dream box would include lots of the things I always run out of or wear out. Needles, both machine and hand, my leather thimble, thread (I'd love to try Aurifil), little scissors and seam rippers (since I am always loosing mine and am always buying more!), a rainbow of solid fabrics and last but not least tone on tone fabrics. Or any kind of coordinated box where the fabrics all go together and a pattern to use all those lovely coordinates! Love your pictures from Quilt Market. ~Phyllis

  192. I think it should include some fabric and patterns from Bonnie and Camille's new Homemade fabric line.

  193. I'd love some of Lori Holt's cute buttons! Alphabitties would also be a great addition. Loving your coverage of Quilt Market, thank you!

  194. I love getting first look samples of fabrics or notions! A little surprise every month is like Christmas every month! Thanks for the chance to win this yummy fabric and than you so much for all the pictures from Market!

  195. Just got my box this morning. I love the surprise or it all. Mini templates would be fun, thread is always nice, charm packs are great along with a pattern to use them.

  196. I can't wait to see Chestnut Street from Joanna Figueroa. I've enjoyed the Crossroads Quilt and have enjoyed her collection of patterns. The new collection looks fantastic. It would be great to get a taste of it in the monthly boxes. Love getting the special gifts in the box. Looking forward to the next box.

    Heather Chermak

  197. Thanks for these great pics.I put faces behind some names.I would love to see threads,mini scissors,handsewing notions.
    Hope you are enjoying.

  198. I believe you can't go wrong with some Aurifil thread in your Sampler Box, same with Clover Wonder Clips.

    brandizzle7133 at gmail dot com

  199. OHHH, my what a eyeful for all of us. So many pretty, cute glorious new creations. Girls, you have blown me away! Looks like everyone is having fun,fun! Giveaway is awesome.. Thanks so much…

  200. Seeing all the posts of those fortunate to attend market in SLC – given the travel, perhaps one of those thread cutters – like the Clover pendant one, that you can take and use on board a flight – maybe you could make a FQS exclusive!

  201. I think what I would love to get are things that work together, eg a pattern, some fabric and maybe a template ruler. Not everything for a new project but enough to get you thinking.

  202. The Quilt Market Instagram pics are so much fun – and inspiring! A charm pack of a new fabric would be a great addition or a little button pack.

  203. You already have pretty cool stuff. Maybe any new notions? Pins…. I don't have anywhere to get nice pins… Oh and a guide as to what sort of needle to use when. Some EPP papers/ pattern

  204. I think an English Paper Piecing themed box would be great with a templates (it doesn't have to be hexies- maybe kites?), thread, needles, and fabric to make a small table topper or wall hanging.

  205. That's fun – to put together one of your famous boxes. I might include some fat quarters plus perhaps a charm pack in the same fabric line and a mini charm pack in matching solids, some lovely threads, some of your wonderful Moda ribbon, a thimble, some needles, and then some fun comment patches such as shown on your post. Wouldn't that be awesome?

  206. I think anything you include in the Sampler Box will be cherished. I think precuts or fat quarters from any of the new lines would be great. It's nice sometimes to have the thinking done for you by having fabric that coordinates.

  207. I'd love to see anything from any one of those new collections you just showed us. By the way – just got my first Sew Sampler box today and was thrilled with all the goodies included!

  208. I think having the Easy Angle and Companion Angle rulers are a must. They simplify cutting of hst's and other shapes so much, everyone should have a chance to have one set.

  209. Fabric (always), an assortment of sewing machine needles, scissors, rulers, thread, and a new quilt book.

  210. Little quilt patterns from Fig Tree, the Marti Michell corner trimmer, some great batik fabrics like Bali Snaps, a jelly roll. Your boxes sound great!!!

  211. I love both of the boxes that I have received. You are doing great. I would like a charm pack of Handmade, or Sundrop or Chestnut Street. Mini charms are fine too. I love your jolly bars. Gadgets are lovely too. Loved Lori's Cute as a Button buttons, and the bobbin pins. I have the Alphabities and love them. Our Vintage Farm Girl club is having a ball with Lori's patterns. I received the second one today and I can hardly wait for the next one to come. I love surprises. Thanks for the opportunity to win. Got everything crossed. Really enjoying your photos. Wish I were there. Have fun!!!

  212. I think a colour wheel for quilters would be a great addition. Personally, I've always wanTed a box of Time, time to finish projects, time to start sewing an exciting new project, but that could be a 'long time coming' 😉

  213. Would so love to be at quilt market and can't wait to see all the new "stuff". I think special pins or lips would be a good addition. The new magnet tray always shows such pretty long pins and clips are now in two sizes! Quilt on!

  214. Binding clips, hand sewing thread (like perle cotton), flower or glass head pins in a tin.. I love little fun notions.

  215. It would be fun to have a designer theme, like a Tula one with Tula snips and charm pack and threads from her collection.

  216. Hello! I would suggest that the next quilting box include a creative grids ruler (a small one). Thank you for the opportunity to enter the give-a-way!

  217. Thanks for sharing Quilt Market, so exciting to see all the new merchandise. I would love to see a mini quilt pattern included in the Sampler Box.

  218. Seeing these new fabric lines all tied up in Moda ribbon is such a tease. Love the range of colors in both bundles. I think you should include the teal Aplhabitties in a future Sew Sampler box. I love my pink ones.

  219. Things I'd like to see included: fat quarters, the pins that I see Kimberly using in all the videos, the ArtBiin Bobbin Box, Clover Wonder Clips, Peels Spool Huggers, and maybe in ONE of the Boxes you could put an invite to visit all of you at FatQuarter Shop!

  220. I would love a pattern, template, or stencil,charm pack,and thread to complete a small project. Fig Tree Quilts and Laundry Basket Quilts are two of my favorites.

  221. A nice pair of embroidery scissors or a tape measure would be nice. Candy is always good to. I love your shop your vary creative.

  222. I think you should include a rotary blade. I'm always waiting too long to change my blade – I keep pushing harder on the mat. Not a good thing to do and also very dangerous.

  223. Some English Paper Piecing patterns and the papers to make them, like the Lucy Boston blocks would be so much fun! Oh, and the thread to use to stitch them together!

    Sandy A

  224. Love all the Instagraming, I really appreciate it. Love to see all the new fabrics. I would love to see some binding clips in the box.

  225. Clover binding clips . . . I never seem to have enough of those, and now they come in colors other than red! Thanks for the opportunity to win!
    kakingsbury at verizon dot net

  226. I am loving rainbows, so maybe a rainbow of fqs and a pattern. Also maybe fun trims (love me some ric rac, pom poms and ribbon!) Thank you!

  227. Something new for me to try – perhaps a pincushion pattern or a recently released line as a mini charm pack? I love new things!

  228. I would like snipping scissors, charm packs/ mini charms /fabric, matching thread, pattern to make with whatever fabric is included, quilting rulers …it's all fun!
    Nancy C ehchvac@verizon.net

  229. Some nice ribbon or tape with sewing/themed sayings on it. It could be sewn on quilts or other little handmade items. What's the name of that really nice ribbon??? Something grain????

  230. The handy little "Purple Thang" tool is something no quilter should be without.

  231. You are having too much fun at market! Love the pictures you share with us. Lori Holt's templates would be a great thing to put in the sew sampler box.

  232. Not sure what you include in them now, but a few suggestions would be a small pair of scissors and some threads. Love seeing all the new lines coming out! Have fun!

  233. I would love tools of any kind. Rulers are the best. Sure would love to win any of this fabric. Thanks for the pictures.

  234. Thanks for sharing all of these fun photos! It's the closest I'll probably ever get to actually being there. How about including a charm pack of bright solids and buttons or threads to match?

  235. I LOVE Fabric! charm squares and a new pattern, maybe for a bag or a mini quilt, thread snips, needles, the newest seam ripper, and Aurifil thread. And anything else quilty! Thanks sew much for the giveaway!!!

  236. Thanks for all the great pics!! I'm not sure what's already been in the box but I would love some Frixon pens or a Hera Market or some awesome Tula Pink Hardware!!!

  237. Awesome giveaway! I don't know what you have put in previous packages but I would enjoy fabric samples, thread, maybe a cute little pouch or Moda gifty, alphabitties, gift certificate.

  238. I think it would be fun to include a few rulers, like the block lock. I would also always love Aurifil thread and floss too!

  239. Great inspiration. I think a small pattern to use up fabric samples would be great to include in the monthly kits.

  240. It would be great to include things that all sewers use – Aurifil thread, Frixion pen, binding clips, zips, mini charm packs, some alphabitties or numbered pins…

  241. I would love to have a few solid fabrics included with patterns and small pattern ideas. New notions to test and try out….
    Love it all.

  242. I would love some of Bonnie and Camille's new Handmade collection in your Sew Sampler Subscription Quilting box. How exciting would that be!

  243. Mini charms for the hexie craze and/or a big stitch sample square to make. Maybe a pattern for a block with some thread to stitch it?? The sky's the limit!!

  244. Some nice sturdy ribbon with sewing/quilting sayings that could be used on quilt labels or smaller sewing/quilting projects.

  245. Love FQS; how about a project or two! Sounds like your sampler box includes wonderful notions and precut fabrics!

  246. Ooooh! I would love a cool new Template, Ruler OR Clover Clips!

    Thanks for sharing all the fun of Market with those of us that couldn't be there!

  247. I think you should include something form the new Nightfall collection in the next box. It looks like a really interesting collection, and something new and different!

  248. I think you guys Do great with what you put in already! Maybe a small embroidery pattern and a new small spool of thread for it, like a monthly series that you can't miss. I brag about you guys all the time, your shop is awesome! Thanks so much!


  249. I love to See THE pictures from THE Quilt Market. IT is for me inpossible to come, THE distance is to far. I live in THE Netherlands. But THE pictures gives me THE feelings to be there. Thanks

  250. Just received my Sew Sampler box yesterday. Like this one more than the first. The charm packs with a corresponding pattern was the best – would like to see this again!

  251. Love all the pictures you posted! Makes all the new fabrics look so enticing. What to include in boxes, fabric samples, mini ruler, clover clips, frixion pen, button samples, any of the quilter patterns would be wonderful.

  252. How about things you don't get at a quilt shop, freezer paper, press n seal, washers you get from the hardware store, fabric paint and markers. Trims like ribbons, buttons and beads.

  253. I'd love to see some "just on the market" items! Things I would hesitate to buy, like bright thread, buttons to embellish, a charm pack with a small quilt pattern. Just put Kimberly and Joanna together, they always have great ideas!

  254. Your Boxes are enticing. I think you curate them perfectly, but maybe a pattern and always fabric. Thanks for the giveaway!

  255. I would like to see some mini charms with a mini charm project book.
    They make some nice mini quilts! Love the pictures of Quilt Week. Keep them coming!!!!

  256. Thread, thread, thread should be included. We should all try different threads to improve our sewing!

  257. Absolutely the new Bonnie & Camille fabric line with a pillow pattern & the aurifil to match ! SLC loves Quilt Market & Fat Quarter Shop – come back soon please!
