Welcome Fat Quarter Shop!


Today I’d like to give a big welcome to my newest blog sponsor, the Fat Quarter Shop! A few years ago when I started quilting and wanted to build up my fabric stash a bit, this was where I bought my fabric. I remember being so incredibly impressed with not only the fabric selection and speed of shipping but how pretty the fabric was packaged. Seriously, I can still picture that first package in my mind! :)

The Fat Quarter Shop was founded in 2003 by Kimberly Jolly. Kimberly (a quilter) began the shop as a side business on evenings and weekends while still working a corporate position outside the home. From the very beginning, she was committed to delivering top-notch service for every single order and customer. As the Fat Quarter Shop’s reputation grew, Kimberly decided to make it a full-time operation with the addition of her husband and, later, more staff. As a team, the Fat Quarter Shop continues to branch out with the best fabrics, exclusive kits, quilt clubs, BOMs, and more.

This is shaping up to be an exciting year at the Fat Quarter Shop. The 2013 Designer Mystery BOM (Block of the Month) is a stunning row quilt with blocks by 12 amazing Moda designers.

From June 2013 through May 2014, members will receive fabric and instructions for one block and finish with a fabulous quilt setting. This year, they are using the upcoming Avalon collection by the fabulous Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts, who has designed the equally fabulous and unique finishing kit. Fig Tree fans, do not miss out!! More info here and sign up before it’s full!

Thank you for joining in the fun here Kimberly and company! And thank you everyone for supporting my sponsors.

    I love them, too! Everything looks so nice when it arrives and I love the monthly mini charm club. :)

    I LOVE the Fat Quarter Shop, and I agree, they wrap your fabric so beautifully that you feel like you’re receiving a gift when it arrives. I didn’t know they were on Pinterest, so thanks for telling me that. I just “followed” all of their boards, and I know I will be trading even more of my time for the inspiration opportunities on Pinterest because of it!

    Fat Quarter Shop was the first online company I ordered fabric from, several years ago! I was always thrilled to receive such personal service from Kimberly. How exciting!

    FQS was my first online fabric shopping experience, and I keep going back. They have even patiently answered questions like, ‘I want to order a bundle of XYZ fabric range and also want a background fabric to go with it. Which of fabric A or fabric B do you think would be the better colour match? I cannot see them and would appreciate a second opinion before placing the order.’ Really helpful.
