I love fat quarters because I can sample more fabrics - because some of us don't have the budget for yards and yards. And I love scrappy quilts too so lots of different fabrics cater to that. I am now a follower. Great giveaway, thanks.

Lindsay Conner said...

I love fats because they look so pretty stored on my shelf. And they are the perfect size to use on multiple projects without getting sick of them. :)

Sara said...

I like to combine similar patterns or colorways in one patchworky dress - fun fun!

Jessica said...

I'm a new follower! They are the perfect size for collecting all different fabrics. And for someone who is on a budget, they are often the best way to purchase fabric :) Thanks for the chance!

Jennifer said...

I love fat quarters because they're a great way to get a taste of a fabric without having to commit to yardage or spend a lot of money! :)

Heather A said...

I'm kind of new to quilting and fat quarters are so useful because they help me build up a wee bit of a stash to work with ... some variety, at least, without too much of a financial burden ... and yet the size is enough to allow many pattern options. I find them a good size for beginners like me.

Pam said...

I am a new follower. I like fats because I love scrappy quilts.

Carla said...

Yippee! I'd love to win me some FATS! Thanks for the giveaway!!

Sandy Ang said...

What lovely fabric. I'd love to make little embellishments like flowers with them for my cards. Thanks for the chance !

Catskill Quilter said...

I love fat quarters because they give me a lot of variety, and if I can use different prints in the same color rather than using 1 fabric everywhere in the quilt that I need that color, the quilt looks much richer and more complex to me.

Jackie @ craftonmymind said...

I've been a follower for a while now - I love fats because I can never decide which fabric I like best, and that way I get a little bit of everything!

Marcia W. said...

Fat Quarters give so much variety in a quilt - that is why I love fats. Thanks for the giveaway - you may have noticed my occasional comment. Thanks for the giveaway.

ElfRenee said...

I love them because I am in a small space, and so these are a good, manageable size.

Sunni @Love Affair with my Brother said...

I think I love fats because they inspire creativity. What I mean is, yardage offers you more possibilities. But if you have a smaller amount of fabric you love, you need to think outside the box.

syd said...

I love fats mainly because they're lovely for quilting - but the real beauty is that you can use them for so much more!

Fat Quarters are just so much easier to work with, what makes quilt making just a pleasure.
I’m writing from my tiny apartment in Jerusalem, the capital of the holy land.
Tiny home means planning each move, heavily debating which tools to purchase and of course the size of fabric I work with. I mainly use scraps and leftovers gathered from all sorts of places, in effort of recycling. When in need to purchase new fabric, FATs are definitely a sensible option. Sure I will make lots of use from those beautiful fabrics you’re giving away.
Just found your site and became a follower in hope to receive updates on all new interesting posts with techniques and useful tips. It’s great that you’re sharing all that knowledge. Thanks!

Melanie said...

Love fat quarters for making all sorts of cute things for my baby girl!

I'm a new follower and I love fat quarters since I'm able to collect all the fabrics that catch my eye without running out of space in my sewing room. Plus they make scrappy quilts so much better since you're able to include a ton of variety.

Marsha said...

I've always been so afraid of cutting fabric into small pieces so fat quarters will certainly kick my ass into getting that patchwork quilt in the pipeline actually started! Plus, I'm in need of some prints too... so they'd be a great help.

Cat said...
