    1. Thanks for the info. I did not realize that I could share my wish list. I will definitely do that because my husband and kids think I already have everything, but we all know that’s not true. I usually get gift certificates from him which I always enjoy, but any gift is greatly appreciated.

    1. Thank you for the blog post. I was trying to think what I could use my October Sew Sampler coupon for. This has given me some ideas.

  1. Sew many great ideas! The Kaffe Fasset would be beautiful long after 2024 is over. Can’t go wrong with a FQS gift certificate. So hard to choose. I’ll just have to get them all.

  2. Wonderful quilty gift ideas! I’m always partial to Lori Holt’s designs, so I love the Farmgirl Vintage grouping.

  3. Love all the gift list suggestions, FQS never lets me down. Always beautiful items, carefully wrapped and shipped in a timely fashion. Thanks for another great year of quilty fun.

  6. Yes to all of the above wish list and then a whole lot more. Just pack up the sho, I’ll take it to go. Lol

  7. Some really great ideas! I think I would want the Lori Holt quilt planner – I have too many WIPs at any given time and have a hard time keeping track of them.

  8. I love all the suggestions. I’ve bought the materials to make Lori Holt’s boards, but, if I was lucky enough to win, I would use the gift certificate to purchase at least one.
    The other enticing thing is that this contain things that I wouldn’t necessarily be drawn to but would enjoy trying out.
    Thank you!
    (and I have my fingers crossed)
