And speaking of the designers—Fat-Quarter Favorites promises patterns from some of the best in the biz and some up-and-comers. We asked the designers to answer an all-important fat-quarter question:

Do you prefer fat-quarter singles or bundles?

  • Katja Marek of Katja’s Quilt Shoppe says, “I prefer bundles, but I don’t necessarily use the fabrics together when I purchase a bundle. I think I just like the well-coordinated temptation, all in one package.”
  • Melissa Corry of Happy Quilting Melissa says, “Hands down, bundles!!!”
  • Samantha Dorn of Aqua Paisley Studio says, “A bundle of fat quarters is a gift that keeps on giving! Using a bundle of fat quarters from a single fabric collection makes fabric selection a breeze, and any leftovers make a great addition to your stash—which makes a bundle a great place to start when purchasing fabric.”
  • Heidi Pridemore of The Whimsical Workshop says, “I Love Bundles :)”
  • Peta Peace of She Quilts A Lot says, “I love fat quarter bundles but sometimes it’s nice to show your own style and flair with a personally curated set from my stash. So I guess I’m also a bit partial to single fat quarters along with the bundles. My fat quarter drawers are definitely testament to that!”

Good advice from some fat-quarter pros!

Thanks to all who entered the drawing! The winner is Barbara, who says:

“I prefer fat quarter bundles because you get a selection of fabrics that look great together. The hard part is removing the ribbon and actually using the fabrics! This book would be a great solution to that problem!”
