Have you heard of Fat Quarter Shop's Sew Sampler boxes? I have been hearing from various sources that they are a very good value and extremely fun. Supposedly the contents are at least a $65 value, and the cost for the box is $25. I took the plunge, signed up, just received my first box and could not be more pleased. So here is what is inside:
Nice presentation with the packaging echoing the color scheme of what is underneath.
A "Jolly Bar" of Corey Yoder's Pepper and Flax fabric. In this particular pre-cut, which is exclusive to FQS, you get 42 5" x 10" cuts of each fabric in the collection. This is the perfect size for most mini quilts, including Schnibbles and Little Bites. It amounts to the same thing as half a layer cake or two charm packs. You can do a lot with that.
Including making this small quilt from the pattern they give you. You would need to purchase the background and border fabric obviously. I am thinking what a cute table runner or square topper this would make.
And how about this? A set of Alphabitties labels, a Creative Grids ruler, and two spools of Aurifil thread!
Last, but not least, a block pattern for the Barn Block Quilt Sew Along FQS is sponsoring. There will be 12 of these block patterns. There are a lot of pieces in this block, so I can see how the Alphabitties would be a big help in keeping them organized.
I added the prices of all these items if purchased individually, and it came to over $67 including tax. It was lovely to receive the box, and I felt as if I were getting a present. The contents were very thoughtfully curated, with items that went together and were very Springy in color and theme. I am quite happy with it, and can't wait to get June's box! If you call Fat Quarter Shop and sign up over the phone, you can probably still get your hands on this May box.
