Flash sale! Pick 5 fat quarters and . . .

We’re starting out with a little quilting math today, a story problem. (It’s a snap, promise—we’ll even give you the answer.)

Jane chose 5 fat quarters from her stash; then she chose 1 background fabric to coordinate. How many different quilts will Jane make using the same formula again and again?

The answer: 15.

  • Lately, in groups — then I already have coordinating fabrics for my project.

    —Carol Vickers on July 21, 2017
  • Now I have managed to collect some interesting fat quarters. Just picked them up when I saw the ones I loved. A few times when a bundle was on sale but it would be great to use them up and move them along. Kathy has a couple of quilts in her 5 Fat Quarter book that I really like. Thank you for letting us preview the quilts.

  • Being the fabric hoarder that I am, I collect fat quarters both ways. If a particular one strikes my fancy I buy it, after all, it may not be there next time.

  • I collect fat quarters both ways. I love those wonderful, coordinated bundles, but building a random assortment of adorable prints is so much fun!

    —Caryn Goulden on July 21, 2017
  • Bundles and one by one. I feel sorry for the ones not in a bundle so I get them and make a bundle with them.

    —Maurine M on July 21, 2017
  • I like buying fat quarters in groups, that way they are coordinated. I also buy them singly to fill in the gaps.

    —Karen B. on July 21, 2017
  • I do both. Have a very large collection.

    —Peggy on July 21, 2017
  • I only buy bundles. I want a stack of fat quarters that all go together.

    —Frances Claassens on July 21, 2017
  • I collected one by one until the last few months and I’ve ordered two bundles. This book looks like fun.

    —Valerie Thompson on July 21, 2017
  • I collect them one by one. I have been gifted bundles. Any form I can get! Book looks like fun.

    —Carol Johnson on July 21, 2017
  • Fat quarters "own" me, so I get them both ways and have tons of them. They are irresistable!

    —Mary C. on July 21, 2017
  • One by one – usually I see a fat quarter that catches my eye and I just have to buy it = no rhyme or reason.

    —Martha Morgan on July 21, 2017
  • I go for fat quarters I really like, but have some bundles especially if I know it will not be available later. Looking forward to purchasing this book!

    —Carole on July 21, 2017
  • Both ways.

    —Linda Christianson on July 21, 2017
  • I collect FQ’s both ways.

    —Debbie Hewitt on July 21, 2017
  • BOTH ways of course!! Who can resist beautiful fabrics?
    LOVE the book!
    Thank you for this opportunity!

    B Kathy on July 21, 2017
  • I guess I like both. Bundles-well, I have those and singles. I have those, too!

    —Judi on July 21, 2017
  • Generally I collect one by one and put my own bundle together. I saw several quilt patterns that I really like in Kathy’s book. Putting them on my "to do" list.

    —Sandy May on July 21, 2017
  • I purchase FQ to complete projects.

    —Cheri on July 21, 2017
  • I usually collect my fat quarters one by one.

    —Gwen H on July 21, 2017
  • I purchase individual, & bundles. Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Sandi Kelly on July 21, 2017
  • Mostly in bundles!

    —Judy Valentino on July 21, 2017
  • I do both. Sometimes I only need a tiny bit to finish a quilt, and sometimes I can’t resist the bundle.

    —Joy Dickson on July 21, 2017
  • I like to buy fat quarters one by one or several at a time, but not bundled. I prefer coordinating my own fabrics.

    —Linda Towers on July 21, 2017
  • I love picking them up one at a time, but if I see several I like, I will grab all of them. You can never have too many fat quarters.

    —Holly on July 22, 2017
  • I just collect them one by one

    A. Bouwman on July 22, 2017
  • I buy bundles and singles. It depends on the patterns.

    —Julane on July 22, 2017
  • either! I usually pick up "onesies" because I’m building a plan.

    —Nancy L Eriksen on July 22, 2017
  • Definitely layer cake!

    —Tk Oler on July 23, 2017
  • I pick what attracts me, then find others to co-ordinate with them. When I get home I usually find I have many others that go beautifully with what I bought! It seems I buy them faster than I use them, but if you don’t buy it when you see it, you might not find it again!

    —Margaret Hynes on July 24, 2017
  • I buy bundles unless I’m in need of something specific for the quilt.

    —Terri D'Ambrosio on August 10, 2018
