Celebrated quilters Marianne Fons and Liz Porter know the allure of fat quarters all too well. They’re easy to collect and fun to display—and that’s before we even think about cutting and sewing them.

Triangle Surprise quilt by Edyta SitarBut Marianne and Liz will inspire you to do just that in Scrappy Fat Quarter Quilts, a curated collection of favorite quilts first introduced in Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting magazine. Who else is fanatical about fat quarters? How about the designers featured in this fun new book: Elizabeth Hartman, Nancy Mahoney, Edyta Sitar, Jean Wells, and more—including three quilts from Liz Porter herself!

Best of all, these timeless fat-quarter quilts are perfect for individual fat quarters—cuts that aren’t packaged in a bundle from a fabric line. So whether you collect bundles or singles, your unique fat-quarter collection will work beautifully in the patterns presented.

  • Just started packing up my collection for a big move so I am guessing that I have too many fat quarters to mention. Have to get them packed up before any one in my household takes inventory. Thanks for the opportunity and inspiration to cut them up.

    —Colleen Gander on October 2, 2014
  • I mostly have yardage, way too much… In fat quarters I may have around 50 (I have to admit I haven’t counted).

    Anita on October 2, 2014
  • I would be afraid to find out. Ignorance is bliss in this situation.

    —DebrafromMD on October 2, 2014
  • I have collected fat quarters for years! I’n not even sure I could venture a guess. But 100 would probably be a good estimate 😉

    Jocelyn on October 2, 2014
  • I have three fat quarter bundles – would love to use them up! I usually only collect them if I have a quilt in mind to make!

    —Lee on October 2, 2014
  • I am sure that I have collected well over three hundred. I like the advantage they afford by giving me a chance to have lots of different prints and textures.
    I love to make scrappy quilts because they are warm and comforting.

    —Patricia D. Roberts on October 2, 2014
  • Definitely over 100, maybe 200…. Beautiful collection that I enjoy looking at

    cindy lanahan on October 2, 2014
  • I have about 10 fat quarters. I am trying to build my stash.

    —Rachel on October 2, 2014
  • too many fat quarters to count

    —Marty Knutson on October 2, 2014
  • I have been collecting blue fat quarters for a specific patterns and have at least 15 so far and am still looking.

    —Cecelia on October 2, 2014
  • I don’t have a lot maybe 20to25

    —sonia afanador on October 2, 2014
  • It is in the neighborhood of 60 fat quarters but I’m probably being conservative.

    —Rosalind Gutierrez on October 2, 2014
  • I have fat quarters in abundance! Now if my time could just cooperate. 🙂

    Lori on October 2, 2014
  • I have enough fat quarters to make quilts for the rest of my life and still have fabric leftover. I love,love scrappy quilts. There are too many designs and fabrics to attract me. The patterns in this book are wonderful and I can see making several of them in my future.

    —Arlene on October 2, 2014
  • Oodles and oodles of fat quarters…hundreds!

    —Amy Cofer on October 2, 2014
  • I want to win how?

    —Andrea Aken on October 2, 2014
  • I’ve collected oodles and oodles…hundreds of fat quarters!

    —Amy Cofer on October 2, 2014
  • Well now I have not counted the fat quarters that have found their way into my stash, but probably between 100 and 200 have at one time been in this room.

    —Lois Schmittinger on October 2, 2014
  • I have hundreds and hundreds of fat quarters! Most are sorted by color family and look so pretty in the baskets (closet, storage tubs, etc) in my sewing room. They are hard to resist at any quilt store. Every time I pick up a few more, my husband gives a major eye roll and asks when these are all going to be used. My excuse to him is, it takes a lot of these to make a quilt (NOT!). 😉

    —Susan Petrosky on October 2, 2014
  • Hummmm, I may have about fifty to sixty fat quarters as I have a few bundles of FQ and a few random ones.

    —Cindy Pilkington on October 2, 2014
  • I’ve got some.. less than 40 I think.. I decided I’d rather buy 1/4yd or bigger cuts.. I’ve found not all FQ are really FQ and there is not enough to do my projects…

    Debbie D. on October 2, 2014
  • I can’t count that high!

    —Sharon Kerber on October 2, 2014
  • I have way too many to count but could probably make every quilt in this terrific book without even making a dent in the stash. I would love to win this book for just that reason. Time to thin out some of the fat quarters so I can go shopping again.

    —Audrey on October 2, 2014
  • Almost every time I go into a quilt shop or go to a show I buy fat quarters. I just finished 2 different tops(a twin size and a baby quilt) that utilized my stash. Sometimes I get bundles or just whatever individual one that strikes my fancy. Without counting, I’d say I have at least 150 fat quarters.

    —Karen A on October 2, 2014
  • I would guess hundreds!!

    —Donna K on October 2, 2014
  • I have a large plastic storage bin that is full of them. Love em!

    —Nancy on October 2, 2014
  • Since my husband can’t read this I can confess it would be over 1,000. A book on scrap quilts would put me well on the way to using some of them up.

    —Cyndi Porcher on October 2, 2014
  • I have collected enough fat quarters to make several quilts. I keep telling myself no more until I use up what I have but they keep stacking up! My daughter just gave me a gift certificate to a quilt shop for my birthday and guess what? More fat quarters! I would love to start using them by making the "Snowball" pattern!

    Louise Grenell on October 2, 2014
  • HOW MANY FAT QUARTERS?! Oh my goodness!! This is actually a little embarrassing. I have shelves of fat quarters! Yes, shelves! When I buy fabric, I purchase the whole line as a packaged fat quarter bundle. I’m pretty sure I need counseling!

    —Jan McElyea on October 2, 2014
  • I purchase a lot of fat quarters, and I have probably 100-200 of them….they are small enough to store and large enough to get put together and make something. Thanks for the give away!

    —Jacklynn Grimm on October 2, 2014
  • When I first started "quilting" my husband signed me up for a fat quarter of the month club. Being a clothing maker for 15 years, I was at a loss on what do do with so "little" fabric. I loved the many fabrics I received, but most are still in the original packages. Since then I have made many quilts, but still have loads of pieces, and of course purchased many fat quarters because they were so gorgeous. I really need to use what I have in a pleasing way. Any help is appreciated.

    —Edna on October 2, 2014
  • I definitely have way too many to count. My addition to fat quarters is on par with my addiction to chocolate.

    —Paula on October 2, 2014
  • Would LOVE this book! I have tons of fat quarters, surrounded by tons more stash! The patterns in this book would certainly help use them up!

    —Kate Hudak on October 2, 2014
  • I am guessing that I have in the hundreds of fat quarters. Thanks!

    —Delaine on October 2, 2014
  • Too many to mention!

    —susan kinard on October 2, 2014
  • The fat quarters are in the hundreds, but the yardage is too much to mention. The lovely quilts in this book would definitely help make a dent!

    —krafty kc on October 2, 2014
  • I love scrapy quilts. I have made several. With all the different textures and color of fabric they never are boring

    Elaine on October 2, 2014
  • I love scrapy quilts. I have made several. With all the different textures and color of fabric they never are boring.

    Elaine on October 2, 2014
  • I only have one small tub of fat quarters, so probably less than 100. However, it is a fight with myself every time I go to a shop not to buy a dozen! (At least!!)

    —Marsha T on October 2, 2014
  • I have about 150 fat quarters…and a whole ton of yardage in my stash that I could convert to fat quarters 🙂

    Joy C. on October 2, 2014
  • Too many to count!

    —Karen Sample on October 2, 2014
  • I love to use fat quarters! I probably have at least 300 and I add more all the time!

    —theresa sheldon on October 2, 2014
  • i have a stack in each bookcase filled with larger yardages. they are the in the same colors but i am able to pull out the smaller pieces more easily when i need them rather than cutting off a chunk from the bigger yardage. it also allows me to see if i have enough to make a scrappy quilt.

    —Jeanette Fairman on October 2, 2014
  • I thought I had the FQ’s under control – probably had about 50 – but then I won an online giveaway for the entire Robert Kaufman Kona bounty of basics fat quarter set – darks AND lights…. now I have so many solids I don’t know what to do!

    —regina on October 2, 2014
  • I am a fat quarter junkie, I couldn’t tell you how many I currently own. And I can’t just buy one of a print, I buy at least 4 of each print. This book has several quilts that I would LOVE to make to use up that stash.

    —Dee Dee on October 2, 2014
  • I have about 150 fat quarters…and a whole ton of yardage in my stash that I could convert to fat quarters!

    Joy C. on October 2, 2014
  • I have 2-3 hundred, I buy them because they are coordinated, once I start a project and need more, I buy yardage. Let’s face it, there is one or two in most bundles that we don’t bond with and others we love.

    —Debbie Yarbrough on October 2, 2014
  • Well….if truth be told….thousands….my quilting gal pals call my basement a store.

    —Alison on October 2, 2014
  • I swear my fat quaters are having sex when I’m not looking, they reproduce like rabbits. There must be 500 hidding in the fabric room.

    —Laura Taylor on October 2, 2014
  • Oh my goodness, a quilter should never tell how much as it would show how much of a fabric hoarder she is….grin! There are not enough fingers & toes to go around to figure it out.

    —Toni Brooks on October 2, 2014
  • fat quarters are great, at our quilt guild we bring in a fq for a drawing and we exchange them with our secret quilter friend, so I have too many to mention.

    —Connie Leydig on October 2, 2014
  • Does TMTC = too many to count?

    Off the top of my head, without counting, I would venture to say that my stash of fat quarters swells over the 250 piece mark . . . and there may be more there. This past weekend I added 71. But four of those went to my Li’l Sis so she could make a new bag (those don’t count, do they?)

    —Sandy Navas on October 2, 2014
  • HUNDREDS of fat quarters! Pick a theme or scheme, and I have enough for a quilt!

    —Nancy Shepard on October 2, 2014
  • Just started getting fat quarters, so just in the tens. Love the look of “Scrappy Triangles” by Jean Nolte.

    —Quilting Tangent on October 2, 2014
  • I probably have at least 75 fat quarters, enough for a few quilts.

    —Susan on October 2, 2014
  • I don’t keep count of how many fat quarters I’ve collected…this way I don’t feel guilty if I happen to pick up a few more here or there 😉

    —Terry on October 2, 2014
  • Fat quarters??? Let’s just say that there is an entire section in my closet FULL of fat quarters!

    Jenny Mahieu on October 2, 2014
  • Too many to mention! I stopped collecting fat quarters for awhile because they had gotten out of hand but then I started a "Dear Jane" and my fat quarter obsession has returned with a vengeance! 🙂

    —Terri E on October 2, 2014
  • I don’t have any extra fat quarters but I have tons of scraps. I don’t throw anything away!!!

    —Vickie Townsend on October 2, 2014
  • I am inspired by these photos of gorgeous quilts! I want to get started now! I’m not a huge collector of fat quarters…I have about 10 of them. I’m more of a collector of fabric remnants in various sizes. They are always priced so I can’t refuse. I’d love to win!

    —Kathy E. on October 2, 2014
  • Probably close to 100.

    —Mary Erb on October 2, 2014
  • Gosh – in the hundreds. I have them categorized – Christmas, dogs, batiks, kids and other. They are like quilter’s crack – too tempting to resist :)!

    —Kim S on October 2, 2014
  • Well I have to admit that I have too many to count. That is of course beyond the ones that have already been used. I am addicted to fabric and LOVE quilting. Looks like a fabulous book.

    —Gloria on October 2, 2014
  • I started out collecting fabric in larger pieces – perhaps before "fat quarters" were so popular. Eventually I realized I couldn’t store yards of every fabric I just couldn’t live without, so I "graduated" to smaller cuts – and discovered fat quarters. I often buy them without the slightest idea what they will become, and sometimes with a nagging suspicion that they’ll never BECOME anything more than lovely things to hold and admire and put back into my stash.

    —Carol on October 2, 2014
  • I have sew many fat quarters. Never have counted them but will continue to buy them. Would love to win the book. I’m a huge fan of Fons and Porter.

    —Christine Gibbons on October 2, 2014
  • I LOVE fat quarters and they keep me busy. I am constantly rearranging the fat quarters for my projects, moving materials around. My kids think I’m nuts – I know exactly what fat quarters I have and where they should be and woe to the person who moves one. I have bought hundreds, but I use them up. Fat quarters don’t stay around long in my house.

    —Dana Crossland on October 2, 2014
  • I have lost count on the fat quarters I have hoarded in my sewing room!! Love them!!!

    —Bernadette Schultz on October 2, 2014
  • I have way too many fat quarters to count. I love picking them up when I visit a new quilt shop. It is always fun to see the different ways they are bundled together.

    —LaVonne B. on October 2, 2014
  • Love fat quarters also!! It’s a good thing I am a new quilter or I would probably be in the thousands!! Would so love to win this book. Love all the quilts. From what I can tell fat quarters are a great way to quilt and have a multitude of colors. Beautiful quilts!!

    —Patsy W on October 2, 2014
  • I can’t say how many I have collected, as I use them when I buy them. As I no longer make bed size quilts anymore, they are a perfect size for lap robes and wall hangings.

    —Lorraine Robertson on October 2, 2014
  • I have about 100 fat quarters. I recently started collecting kim diehl fat quarters. I love 1800’s also. This book is beautiful and i’m hopi g to win it!

    —Denise on October 2, 2014
  • Just getting started. Sometimes I buy them for a specific project only to change my mind and other times I buy them because the color and/or pattern catch my eye.

    —Amy on October 2, 2014
  • I probably have about 200 or more fat quarters. I love the quilts that are featured in this book.

    —Deborah Fowler on October 2, 2014
  • Let’s just say that I have more than enough to make every quilt in the book without any repeats.

    —Barb Colvin on October 2, 2014
  • I’m in the ‘hundreds of fat quarters’ category. I would love to use some of them with projects from this great book. Thanks for a chance to win.

    —Cher Merriman on October 2, 2014
  • Gazillions! I can’t wander in a quilt shop without buying a fat quarter of fabric or two or three! I enjoy making scrap quilts and fat quarters are perfect for them!

    —Judi Rizzo on October 2, 2014
  • Too many to count, without a doubt! So many beautiful fabrics, soo many fat quarters!

    —Vicky on October 2, 2014
  • Many, many many. In bundles, single cuts, flannels, but I love fat quarters because you can do so much with them.

    —Rita S on October 2, 2014
  • I have collected about 100 fat quarters. Thanks for the chance.

    —Janie on October 2, 2014
  • How many have I collected?..hmm..probably between 50 -100 I guestimate. I do love to buy them in collections although I have plenty of singles too.

    —Carol Gearey on October 2, 2014
  • I have too many to count.

    —Jeannie Hunt on October 2, 2014
  • How many fat quarters do I have? It is somewhere between infinity and beyond!!! Too many to count and never enough!!
    Love the first F and P quilt pictured!!!

    —Lisa W. on October 2, 2014
  • I have only about 50 or 60 fat quarters stashed away.I have to hide them so my hubby doesn’t know I’m buying them so I literally have to stash them.

    Annette J. on October 2, 2014
  • Gee, do I have to tell? Too many to count! I badly need this book!

    —Joni on October 2, 2014
  • I am new to quilting so far I have collected about 130 pieces of fat quarters!

    —Shan on October 2, 2014
  • Lots of fun patterns in this book. I have too many fat quarters to count. Looks like a great addition to my library

    —Clare on October 2, 2014
  • I have no more than 20 EQ bundles.

    —Mary D on October 2, 2014
  • Too many to count. I would love to make the quilts in this book to use up some fat quarters.

    —Marlene on October 2, 2014
  • I probably have a couple of dozen. I don’t have much of a stash yet.

    —Sandy K on October 2, 2014
  • I don’t know whether to be embarrassed or proud that my collection of fat quarters is more abundant than I have time to use up at this time. I am working on grouping them and then actually putting them to use in small quilts. At this time, I need quick and easy projects to get the piecing done in a reasonably short period of time.

    —Deborah on October 2, 2014
  • If I gathered them all up in one spot, I probably have more than I think..possibly about 50-60.

    —Vicki H on October 2, 2014
  • Oh my gosh, I have LOTS of fat quarters that are calling out to me from my stash!

    —Kathy g on October 2, 2014
  • I’m pretty good about using my fat quarters. At this time I don’t have a stash of FQ…other fabric? Now that’s a different story. 🙂

    —Susie Furgason on October 2, 2014
  • fat guarters by color and style fill up 23 big plastic bins. each weight 20+ pounds and still sorting more. Something about inheriting them and finding great auction buys…sew maybe I should be your winner. And if sew I will invite you over to help me could all of this stash. thanks for the chance and the beautiful quilts to view.

    —Joanne on October 2, 2014
  • I love fat quarters. You can’t get enough! I am sure I have hundreds. It allows me to collect fabrics I think I can’t live without, but don’t want to buy yards!

    —Joanne on October 2, 2014
  • I am in the process of reorganizing my sewing room–cleared all out, new paint and carpet and tall storage cabinets lining two walls which my son assembled for me! Have tons of short yardages which I can cut fat quarters from and just a few actual fat quarter bundles–so I think that quilting book would be just perfect!

    Barb Kaup on October 2, 2014
  • I typically buy yardage, not fat quarters. But I like the efficiency of fat quarters.

    —Jane on October 2, 2014
  • Probably in the hundreds. I have a hard time resisting a new fat quarter of beautiful or unique fabric as a treat. Then comes the challenge of finding the perfect pattern to use these fat quarters in.

    —Leslie Benoy on October 2, 2014
  • I have around 230 fat quarters, give or take a few. Would love to win the book.

    —Evelyn Haddock on October 2, 2014
  • I would say definitely 100’s. Hopefully not 1000, but too many to count

    —Jeannine on October 2, 2014
  • I have drawers and tubs full of fat quarters. I haven’t even tried to count them. I would definitely love to win this ebook so I could get some inspiration for using them. Thanks for the opportunity!

    —Kalen on October 2, 2014
  • I’m almost ashamed to say that, in my sewing lifetime I’ve purchased maybe only 20 – 25. And at this moment I have but 4 or 5 on hand since I readily share all the time with my sewing friends.

    —Norma Weeks on October 2, 2014
  • I have a 5 gallon tub of fat quarters from different quilt shops I have been to in my travels over a 4 yr period just waiting for the right pattern to click in so I can start sewing them up no 2 are alike!!!!!!

    —Norma Weeks on October 2, 2014
  • I haven’t counted them, but I’d say I must have around 150!

    wendy on October 2, 2014
  • I love my fat 1/4s even the fabric ones.. I’m sure that I have enough, unless I see a new fabric line, then I need more. Just need ideas to use them and this book looks just right.

    —Julie Cruden on October 2, 2014
  • Fatquarters–let me count how many. I have too many to count, and I love each one.

    Martha Maddy on October 2, 2014
  • I have a large collection of fabric stash. My daughter & I just found another plastic tote full of fabric. Some of this is fat quarters, some smaller scraps and some yardage. There is even some vintage "feed sack" cloth. I would love to make a scrappy quilt to use up some of this stash!

    —Kim Ruddle on October 2, 2014
  • How many fat quarters? So many that I have completely filled a shelf on my cabinet. In order to add new ones, I have to remove part of a stack, place them on a 6×12 ruler, smoosh them down, and slide them back in. Is that too many fat quarters for one person? I think not!

    Susan G on October 2, 2014
  • Too many to count! but very pretty!

    —Peggy M. on October 2, 2014
  • I have probably collect a hundred+ fat quarters. They are very addicting to purchase since they can be used in so many different quilts. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Jill on October 2, 2014
  • Oh my…I have too many to count. I’m getting my sewing/quilting room remodeled, and when I get it organized I’m afraid I will be embarrassed, ashamed, and probably very proud of my collection!!! This book looks AWESOME to help with this "problem".

    —P. Hutcheson on October 2, 2014
  • "Scrappy Happy Fat Quarters" just might be an inspiration to start ‘digging’ into the supply I have. Those fat quarters have just kept growing, started out with a shoebox for storage, then went to a larger container from the kitchen and now I won’t tell you how many containers I have of them awaiting for some attention and love. Seems those little quarters multiply when they get put in storage!!!! The
    book would be bound to give some inspiration for creation.

    —Betty on October 2, 2014
  • Oh wow – would love to win theis book and could really use it!!!!!!!! Thank you for the chance!!!! I never bought FQs until about 3 years ago and have become a monster. Just finished a king Birds in the Air and went thru a bunch, but still have 5 drawers and 2 plastic tubs full of the "little darlins". I need help for my addiction!!!!!!!!! LOL

    —Janet E. on October 2, 2014
  • hundreds

    Sallie on October 2, 2014
  • I would estimate my fat quarter collection in the low hundreds. I am more prone to collect yardage.

    —Jo Anne on October 2, 2014
  • It’s not so much how many (quite a few) but not a single one seems to be a good fit with the other! Yikes

    —cheryl on October 2, 2014
  • I just started quilting this year, and am finding it hard to resist fat quarters! I only have about 50 so far, but will be adding more I am sure!

    —Kathleen Wade on October 2, 2014
  • I am definitely in the SABLE (Stash Accumulated Beyond Life Expectancy) category which certainly includes more fat quarters than I can count. I love figuring out what I can do with just what is in my stash and fat quarters really help.

    —Sharon Kirkman on October 2, 2014
  • Too many to easily count! But probably not hundreds! This book would be just the ticket to using them up so I could buy more though!

    —Michele on October 2, 2014
  • Fat quarters are a good way to get my fabric-buying fix when I go to a quilt store. I always come home with several to open up and enjoy. I guess that add us to lots of fat quarters.

    Kathy on October 2, 2014
  • What a great book! I just started quilting and have rolls and yards, but will soon be adding quarters to my stash! Never enough time in the day to take it all in!

    —Francine Cato on October 2, 2014
  • How many FQ accumulated…..hmmmm…..by color or design group? Lots and lots and am finding I have less color anxiety than trying to buy larger fabric pieces as scrappy makes me looser in design process…that and merlot……hehehe. The nook looks terrific and I think this blog is wonderful for inspiration and entertainment….now I have chores to do before I go count my FQ

    Jane Modjeski

    —Mj Modjeski on October 2, 2014
  • I have too many fat quarters to count! And they are spread around my sewing room, I have fabric sorted by color and by style. This looks like a great book, thanks for giving us the opportunity to win a free book!

    —Karen N on October 2, 2014
  • I have about 50 fat quarters. They’re fun to buy and fun to use. Looks like a good book.

  • I have more FQ than I can ever use in my lifetime. My only excuse is that they are so pretty and I imagine all the wonderful things I can make with them. They are the perfect size for just about any project I do and the scraps are perfect for applique. Then there are the talented people who write books about how to use them, not fair – I don’t stand a chance. Will I stop buying them? No way, never ever.

    —Betty Grove on October 2, 2014
  • I love fat quarters. I have collections ranging from six to 18 fabrics in the bundle! I probably have well over 100 FQs now with many more in my future!

    —Deb C on October 2, 2014
  • I will admit to at least one hundred. Fat quarters are fabulous pre-cuts to have in ones stash. Scrappy Fat Quarter Quilts patterns would be great to use up some of my fat quarters.

    —Diane H on October 2, 2014
  • I have far too many fat quarters to admit to owning but they bring me great joy whenever I sort through them. They are bits of happiness just waiting to be fondled!

    —Lynn on October 2, 2014
  • Spin city, so nice I can’t wait to get my pins into this.

    —Judy MacDougall on October 2, 2014
  • I myself have only collected maybe less than 100. However, I have inherited probably closer to 300 from my mother!

    —Christinabean on October 2, 2014
  • I never have enough…just when I think it is safe to go in the quilt store again…well, you know how it is!

    Gail G on October 2, 2014
  • I have only been quilting for a short time and so far I have about 200 fat quarters that I would love to use although it’s going to be hard to cut into them.

    —Lynda Nunez on October 2, 2014
  • Telling how many fat quarters you owe is like admitting to your age, 29 and counting… !

    —Denice on October 2, 2014
  • OH MY! I THOUGHT I JUST HAD A FEW…LITTLE DID I REMEMBER ALL THOSE THAT WERE HIDING AWAY! THEY ARE SO FUN TO COLLECT……I DIDN’T REALIZE PEOPLE ACTUALLY USED THEM!

    —CAROL on October 2, 2014
  • I have probably over one hundred to one hundred and fifty fat quarters and I love looking through them and planning what I am going to do with them.

    —Judy on October 2, 2014
  • Since I have a little over 100 fat quarters, I would really love to win Scrappy Fat Quarter Quilts for inspiration. Fat quarters are so addictive!

    —Bonnie on October 2, 2014
  • I am not sure how many I have(count)of them but I have a fondness of all those I chose. I see you have a quilt in lovely small print blues and it is just what I have been searching. I am trying to reproduce a French blue and white antique quilt that I have not seen the pattern for anyplace. I have pics with a ruler of the design and can make my own but the blue fabric is difficult to find. your blue quilt is the closest blue I have found.

    —diane on October 2, 2014
  • I really like fat quarters as well as jelly rolls. I have probably 20-30 fat quarters and am going to begin to use my Accuquilt cutter to make more. It would be lovely to win this book. Thanks.

    —Maria Fortunato on October 2, 2014
  • Hundreds, in a wide variety of style and color.

    —Barbara Ostrander on October 2, 2014
  • I have too much that it is impossible to count

    —Marthese on October 2, 2014
  • Not exactly sure how many fat quarters I have in my stash….probably a few hundred….but shhhhh, don’t tell my husband! I usually buy them off eBay, or when traveling & luggage space is an issue.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win the book – love the quilts seen in the preview!

    —Cynthia A. on October 2, 2014
  • Since I am a brand-new quilter, I don’t have as many fat quarters as most of y’all do. But, I am working on building up my stash of these little goodies and I probably have about 50 of them. Thanks for the chance to win this book.

    —Scorpie on October 2, 2014
  • I haven’t counted them BUT I have lots and lots of fat quarters which I keep in a shoe organizer. They are arranged by color and just look so dang pretty! And I do use them. This book looks fantastic….think I’ll have to purchase it. Thanks!

    —Connie on October 2, 2014
  • I’ve not counted my fat-quarters in a long time for fear of realizing just how many I have and telling myself I don’t need any more. Since ignorance is said to be bliss, I prefer not to know the exact count and follow the idea that no matter how many I have I always need just one more.

    Cindy A. on October 2, 2014
  • I’m kinda limited by the space I have…but there’s probably around 100 fat quarters in my stash.

    —Linda Fleming on October 2, 2014
  • I have collected probably between 30 and 50 FQs. I bought these because I couldn’t find yardage or they are for a specific project.

    —Susan on October 2, 2014
  • I’ll grab at least a fat quarter when there is something I love…for reference, of course! I collected & used a bunch to make a pink version of "Sunny Lanes" from "Nickel Quilts." I love that scrappy look and fat quarters are a painless way to attain it.

    Nancy Weeks on October 2, 2014
  • I have far too many fat quarter to count. But it truly does not matter because my husband says i can have all the fabric i can hide. Then he bought me a house with lots of potential for hiding fabric. Thank you for the chance to win. Happy hording to all.

    —Sharon Meyer on October 2, 2014
  • I have only three fat quarter bundles that I was lucky enough to win. I usually like to buy 1/2 yard cuts of fabric. I did just buy a few batik fat quarters so that I can see if I like sewing with them…batiks are so beautiful! There are several quilts in this book that I would love to make with my bundles! Thank you!

    —Angelia L. on October 2, 2014
  • I’ve been quilting for a few years now and so haven’t collected that many FQ’s but i would say I have close to a hundred. Thanks for hosting the giveaway….I need an excuse to dip into my stash.

    —Ann D on October 2, 2014
  • I’m just starting out so I have only about 4-5 fat quarter bundles but I’m sure I will be collecting more!

    —amy on October 2, 2014
  • I have hundreds of fat quarters…..:(

    —Lou Wotzke on October 2, 2014
  • I just finished making two quilts that used a lot of my fat quarters. I probably have 25 left. Time to replinish!

    —Virginia Degnan on October 2, 2014
  • I only have tens right now but am determined to build up my stash!

    —Tanya on October 2, 2014
  • Too many to count! I need this book so I can use them!!

    Lisa Garrett on October 2, 2014
  • I don’t have any idea how many fat quarters I have, way too many if you ask my husband. I’m sure they number in the thousands and I’m good with that. They’re my favorite precut to buy. I prefer scrappy quilts so they work out great for most things.

    —Nancy MccFall on October 2, 2014
  • I love FQs and they work so well for scrappy quilts and small projects. Mine number in the 100s.

    —Regina Harris on October 2, 2014
  • Goodness…dozens! Totally random dozens. I wish I had given thought to a collection instead.

    Nita on October 2, 2014
  • Hundreds. Every one is potentially "perfect" for my next project.

    —Dixie on October 2, 2014
  • Have LOTS…how many???….maybe 100 or few more…LOVE them! & Knoooow number is growing! lol

    —Lori Morton on October 2, 2014
  • Oh, I have many, many, many, and I won the basket of over 100. I,ve been addicted to fat quarters from the start. I love to buy those little teasers, so colorful/interesting, small cost (no guilt) and makes my day. However, there is a deep dark side–you can have lots of fat quarters and not be able pull the right stuff for a project. I love the these scrappy versions. Thanks.

    —Carol on October 2, 2014
  • What gorgeous patterns in that quilt book. I’ve recently bought several fat quarters and am eager to begin working with them. Thanks for all you do for quilters.

    —Bernice Restivo on October 2, 2014
  • Haven’t been collecting long.. maybe 50?? Although some could be hiding in the kid fabric boxes and the craft project boxes, and …and … uh oh!!

    —Carol on October 2, 2014
  • Can’t begin to count them, but thirty some years worth of collecting!

    —Carole Diehl on October 2, 2014
  • I would love to win this book. The pictures look so wonderful that I would love to make all the quilts in the book. I am relatively new to quilting, but already have an addiction to fabric, especially fat quarters. I do have to keep them hidden from the hubby as he thinks I have enough … But as I have learned along the way, you never have enough fat quarters/fabric!

    —Kelly on October 2, 2014
  • Never enough! I have some from the 80s, before fat quarters were in "vogue" from my sister who worked in a quilt store. I can’t part with them because they may be just what I need in a scrap quilt.

    —Carol Wood on October 2, 2014
  • Oh, sooo many!!

    —Norma B. on October 2, 2014
  • I have too many fat quarters to count. 🙂 I would love to win this ebook and use some of them to make one of the quilts. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

    —Sheila Fernkopf on October 2, 2014
  • I have only 40 because I buy them for particular projects so the left over 40 are those I just couldn’t pass up or have been gifts from friends. I also cut all scraps leftover from any projects into 2 1/2″ squares,2 1/2″ strips or 3″ squares. Some day I plan to make a scrappy quilt from all of these leftovers. Hope I win…love your sight.

    —Barbara Dolan on October 2, 2014
  • I am new to quilting and have bought 10 fat quarter. Making my first quilt using one for my Granddaughter.

    —Patricia C on October 2, 2014
  • Oh maybe close to hundreds!

    —Karon on October 2, 2014
  • I haven’t counted my fat quarters, afraid to know, LOL. They fascinate me when I see them in bundles with all the wonderful prints and colors. I love having them on hand for any idea that makes use of them for large and small projects.

    Gladys Bacon-Rust on October 2, 2014
  • L don’t know how many especially if I add all the material that could be made into fat quarters.

    —Joan on October 2, 2014
  • I love scrappy quilts so fat quarters are a natural fit. How many? I’m afraid there are too many to try to quantify!

    —Pat on October 2, 2014
  • I’m definetly in the too many to mention group. I recently reorganized my sewing area and was surprised at how many FQs I found. I think they are like dust bunnies that multipy in the dark! 🙂

    —Sandy A in St. Louis on October 2, 2014
  • I have tried to count them, but there are just too many in my sewing room! I find them stashed in nooks and crannies! I LOVE fat quarters! I could really use the Scrappy Fat Quarter Quilt book.

    —DeeAnne on October 2, 2014
  • To many to mention lol 🙂

    —sandra on October 2, 2014
  • Probably in the low hundreds and usually 1800’s reproductions.

    —Susan Kellam on October 2, 2014
  • I have just enough to inspire a new project today and not enough to finish one tomorrow. There are never enough fat quarters!

    —Brenda Mc on October 2, 2014
  • I never count them ! I never want to feel like I have tooo many 🙂

    —Janice Regier on October 2, 2014
  • All the quilters I know have always told me that whoever has the most fabric wins. Well my treasures are mostly fat quarters. Did you see all the beautiful colors in the quilts! I am drooling!!!!!!

    —Debra W on October 2, 2014
  • Fat quarters! Way too many to count – my husband teases me that I could open my own store (ha!) I do have them sorted into color families making it easier to find what I’m looking for. Sometimes I just sit and look at them for inspiration, love fabric & the wide array of colors & design:)
    Thank you for this opportunity.

    —Terri on October 2, 2014
  • I probably collected or bought 30 so far.

    —Helen on October 2, 2014
  • I’m still a newbie, so I’m still in the tens; but I love them!

    —Jinger on October 2, 2014
  • I have too many to count. I do like to save them and buy others for a project. This way I’ll leave a ton when I go.

    —Deanna Adams on October 2, 2014
  • I always need more fat quarters. They are like my reading–having several books going at the same time–I also work on several projects at the same time so as not to become bored. I love the variety and the snippets of color amongst my organized stash.

    —Janey on October 2, 2014
  • I think a few hundreds,there’re around 20 bins of them and 2 FQ bundles. And I can use my mum’s stash whenever I want and there’re another few hunderts of them. I think I’m really glad not to know the exact number;-)

    —Hildy on October 2, 2014
  • gosh…way too many to count. I’m always adding to the stash too.

    —Karen on October 2, 2014
  • I read the question about how many fat quarters I’ve collected and said, "Oh, good lord!" 🙂 However, I would guess I have about 50 right now. I tend to buy yardage, then cut it into what I need.

    —Jill Ellis on October 2, 2014
  • a few fat quarters, but o so many quarters yards, like to buy end of bolts; collecting themes, solids, colors….Always looking for a good scrappy pattern, also a bonnie hunter fan, thanks for this give away 🙂

    —Jo T. on October 2, 2014
  • I have less than a hundred but not a whole lot less. I love buying them and enjoy bringing the out later to pet.

    —T Hays on October 2, 2014
  • well-let’s just say that two storage tubs packed tight and 2 dressers with a few drawers full. There are a few hundreds in this house and I cannot seem to get them into blankets and out the door. HELP!

    —Adeline on October 2, 2014
  • I admit to no certain number – I just know when I go to put up a new purchase I having to go to bigger & bigger containers!

    —C Young on October 2, 2014
  • I have many, many fat quarters and bundles!

    —Cindy on October 2, 2014
  • I have too many to count that way I can start a new
    project sooner instead of having to wait to get to the fabric store

    —Mary Welman on October 2, 2014
  • I probably have around 30 or so? So happy you didn’t ask about yardage- that number is much more frightening! Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Sarah J. on October 2, 2014
  • I LOVE FQ’s!! I HAVE to get one from every quilt shop in a shop hop. Or, if I’m visiting family and friends is another state. Not to mention, I have 9 or 10 bundles!! I guess I’m addicted 🙂

    —Dawn Hollingsworth on October 2, 2014
  • I am thrilled with all of the quilts pictured in the Fons and Porter "Scrappy Fat Quarter Quilts" especially "Monkey Business" as blue is always my go to color! I only have around 50-100 hundred fat quarters because if I really love a fabric I always want more.

    —Debbie on October 2, 2014
  • i have not been quilting that long, but i have already aquired a stash of fat quarters, and worse than that, i cannot seem to pass by those bins of small scraps that some shops sell. I’ll admit i need HELP!

    —LYNDA on October 2, 2014
  • I have at least 200 hundred fat quarters. I love fabric clubs. It’s like a gift every month.

    —Cindy Ford on October 2, 2014
  • Like the stars in the sky….just sooo many and all sooo beautiful!

    —Brenda on October 2, 2014
  • 92 in the first box…several more boxes under the bed! Why are these little pieces of eye candy so irresistible to us?

    —Roxann on October 2, 2014
  • I am sure I have purchased well over 1000 fat quarters in my quilting career.
    I probably have over 500 currently on my shelves. I’d love this book to help me move more of them into finished quilts.

    —Sue on October 2, 2014
  • How many fat quarters do I have? Way too many! When we moved I used them to wrap around all our every day and special dishes and that was fine until my husband helped me unwrap those dishes. Oops! Right now I am excited about all my fat quarters as our quilt group is doing a mystery quilt and I will have lots of fabric to choose from! Yay, fat quarters!

    —Adrienne Kischuk on October 2, 2014
  • I have collected so many fat quarters that I have no idea how many I have at home. I have several large totes full of them, they all are waiting for the perfect pattern to use.

    —Elizabeth on October 2, 2014
  • Love the fat quarters, I collect shoe boxes to store them in. People would think I have a shoe fetish if they saw my sewing room!

    —Anita Ezzell on October 2, 2014
  • I don’t always need fat quarters. The scraps I have left after a project, I make .5 sq triangles of any size, 2.5in strips of any length, any usable combo for a lap quilt. Any fabric I NOW think is ugly I do the same – they play hide and seek in a very friendly way. I love all the ideas for scrap patterns – my stash is getting smaller and right now I only buy what I need to add to or finish. Retirement keeps you on a fabric budget!!!

    —Linda Clark on October 2, 2014
  • I have far too many fat quarters to admit. It is a great way to build your stash. I love making Scrap Quilts. Scrappy Fat Quarter Quilts looks like a book I could get carried away with. Ooh My!

    —Deb M on October 2, 2014
  • I do not "collect" fat quarters; that’s what stash is for. I will buy color-coordinated sets of 5 or 6 fat quarters for special projects.

    —Lynne on October 2, 2014
  • I have so many that I have not counted them all. I am a true Fabricolic. I love to scrap quilt please let me win Scrappy Quilting Book. Thank you for a chance. Happy Quilting 🙂

    —Sheila Ivany on October 2, 2014
  • somewhere around 50

    —Becky Whitehead on October 2, 2014
  • The name of the game is She or He who has the most fabric wins, and yes it is an addiction, glad that there is no cure for it. I love these beautiful, colorful quilts that Fons and Porter have come up with, I am already planning the ones I am going to make.

    Loghomedweller on October 2, 2014
  • Gosh I don’t know how many fat quarters I have. Most were bought for a particular quilt that I have made good progress on, but I usually get a few whenever I visit a new quilt shop. Thanks for the chance!

    —June on October 2, 2014
  • I’m thinking I have too many to count. I am always planning projects that I never quite get around to!

    —Deborah K. on October 2, 2014
  • 100’s of fat quarters…..never too much fabric – would love to have this book!

    —Sheila Wynens on October 2, 2014
  • I have probably bought a hundred fat quarters over the years and usually when they are on sale. I hesitate to only buy fat quarters because it seems that every time I do, I wish I had bought more of one particular color/design. Maybe I need to get better at making scrappy quilts!

    —Karen L. on October 2, 2014
  • I love fat quarters. I’m new to quilting and have bought many – not sure how many – fat quarters to begin my fabric stash.

    —Ann L on October 2, 2014
  • I love FQ’s and I love this book! I currently have over 350 FQ’s waiting to be used in my sewing studio. Fat quarters are such a perfect size at 18 X 22, that gives you 396 square inches of fabric goodness! That is a lot of quilt blocks in one piece of fabric!

    —Jackie on October 2, 2014
  • Definitely less than 100.

    —Diane Linker on October 2, 2014
  • I’ve never counted them but there must be between 50 and 100.

    —Joan H. on October 2, 2014
  • I have probably collected over 100 fat quarters and this collection of patterns would certainly help me use up some of them.

    Vicki Steckbeck on October 2, 2014
  • Over 100, but not sure how many. It never seems like enough, though!

    —Janet T on October 2, 2014
  • i have tons of fat quarters i guess i really need to do something with them before thet take over my sewing rm thanks for the chance to win

    debra on October 2, 2014
  • When I first got back into quilting over 10 years ago I stopped at every quilt shop that I passed in my travels. I would always buy a fat quarter or two from every shop — whatever caught my eye with no rhyme or reason as to keeping to a theme. So, over the years I have accumulated a lot of fat quarters and I have even cut come of my stash into fat quarters with the intention that one day I would just make a scrappy fat quarter quilt. Well, needless to say, I have accumulated enough fat quarters to probably make all 13 of these featured quilts a couple times over and then some. I could REALLY use this book to get me started doing just that. Like what was said in the old Calgon commercials…I am hoping this book just "takes me away" to reducing my fat quarter stash. Thank you.
    Quilty Sue in Kalamazoo, MI

    —Sue Fender on October 2, 2014
  • I’m in the "too many to mention" camp – I think I need this book!

    —Laurel on October 2, 2014
  • I don’t have too many fat quarters, but I have plenty of half yards and yards stacked on my shelves! I prefer yardage because you never know how much you’ll need if you aren’t buying for a specific project.

    Emily on October 2, 2014
  • I have hundreds of fat quarters but I love using them. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    —Nancy on October 2, 2014
  • Now that I think about it, they would easily number in the hundreds…I’d better get moving and start sewing with them!

    Hilary on October 2, 2014
  • I’m not exactly sure, but probably about 35.

    —Jen B on October 2, 2014
  • I have mostly yardages, but also a few dozen fat quarters.

    —Donna Street on October 2, 2014
  • I love fat quarters as well. The problem I see with mine is that they don’t have any theme in particular, so finding a quilt that unifies them would be tough.

    —Rosemary on October 2, 2014
  • Too many to count! They are so useful in planned scrappy quilts, my favorite kind to make. Several bed-sized charity quilts each year come from stash.

    —Sally on October 2, 2014
  • It would be difficult to count them, as many of them have been cut up and are in my scrap containers by colors, so I think a guess might be in order here. I’m going to say that my full fat quarters probably number about 150 as of today. Some of them, like my Kaffe Fassett are so precious to me that the thought of cutting into them is unthinkable, but sometime soon, I will find a project that just screams for those special fabrics and they will be carried to the cutting table, fondled, pressed, sprayed with starch, and with a brand new blade in the rotary cutter, the deed will be done. Thank you for the giveaway opportunity.

    —Sylvia on October 2, 2014
  • I probably have about 150 fat quarters right now. I am making a quilt that uses a lot of them…so I can buy more!

    —Christi on October 2, 2014
  • More than I care to count; but never too many.

    —Diane on October 2, 2014
  • If I answer this question, then I will have to acknowledge that it is more than is humanly possible to use….far too many.

    —Janette Velardi on October 2, 2014
  • I have a couple of sets of fat quarters that I want to make into something very special but am looking for something exceptional. I have also bought HEAPS of filler fat quarters for lots of quilts.

    —Wilma on October 2, 2014
  • Probably more than I’d like to admit. FQs are great to have for variety of colors to applique. I like the quilts in the book.

    —Glenda Britten on October 2, 2014
  • I have hundreds, maybe a thousand. Some are in sets but others were bought one at a time as they appealed to me.

    Judy Garling on October 2, 2014
  • Too many to mention.
    I like to collect Batiks as they are wonderful for Needle-turn appliqué .
    And you only need small amounts, just a huge variety of colours

    —Bridget Fletcher on October 2, 2014
  • I’ve got hundreds and sure want to do a scrappy quilt!

    —Diana Salmon on October 2, 2014
  • Probably at least 500 or better! I need to get faster! Thanks

    tdkcarpenoctem@hotmail.com

    —Tabitha Keener on October 2, 2014
  • I would say I’ve collected hundreds! Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

    Christine M on October 2, 2014
  • I don’t have too many fat quarters. I usually will buy a full quarter yard or a half yard unless there is no bolts of that peticular material.
    Thanks for the chance to win a quilting book.

    —Sharon B on October 2, 2014
  • I only have a couple. I have not been sewing much for the last few years. I hope to cange that soon.

    —Donna B on October 2, 2014
  • I have less than 50 because I keep using them. 🙂

    —Rina on October 2, 2014
  • I’d say probably close to 200 fat quarters 🙂 Just love fabric!

    —Becky in Georgia on October 2, 2014
  • Probably in the hundreds. I’ve run out of place to store them, so they go wherever I find a spot. I need to get organized……

    —Bridget on October 2, 2014
  • I’m guessing in the dozens range. I love fat quarters but they are an indulgence so I usually receive them for my birthday or for Christmas presents.

    —souixZea on October 2, 2014
  • I don´t have many fat quarters. I love fabrics and I buy full yards. Thanks for the chance to win!!!

    —Esther on October 2, 2014
  • Over a hundred, easy. Some I’ve bought, some have been gifts. Some are still in pretty bundles and some have chunks cut out of them. All good, as far as I’m concerned!

    —Lisa Marie on October 2, 2014
  • Waaaay tooo many to mention! Love Fat Quarters – so much fun!

    —Carol Y on October 2, 2014
  • Oh I probably have a hundred! But I don’t go out of my way to collect them. They just show up.

    —Pamela Reim on October 2, 2014
  • Hmmm, am I alone in being a fat quarter collector before I became a quilter? My friend and I would meet at the school when we dropped our children off and every Tuesday we’d select a different suburb of Brisbane (Australia) to explore. The day would include one or two quilt shops and a nice lunch spot. Our collection soon grew 😀

    Eventually, I bought a 20 drawer chest of drawers that was perfect to house my fat quarter collection. But I think it’s a magic chest of drawers! Because no matter how many fat quarters I use, it never seems less full?!

    —Kayt Deans on October 2, 2014
  • I have 2, 34 qt latch top bins full of fat quarters; thanks to my friend Julie, they’re in color order!

    —Ann Hedington on October 2, 2014
  • Entirely too many – and that doesn’t count the yardage. LOL.

    —Marilyn on October 2, 2014
  • I have about 12 packs of fat quarters. It is a fun way to buy different fabrics for a project. The book looks fascinating.

    —Nancy on October 2, 2014
  • Oh my gosh, this book looks great, so many possibilities with all the scraps (big and small) I have.

    —Barbara on October 2, 2014
  • I probably have around 50 fat quarters. I love them & use them for many different projects. Thanks for the chance to win this great book! 🙂

    —Debby E on October 2, 2014
  • OH NO! I would be afraid to count them. But this book would give
    me a number of reasons to use them. I don’t know which one I would
    do first.

    elr on October 2, 2014
  • Oh dear, I have no idea but am guessing at least 100 and most of them are batiks.

    I do have others as well. Most of my resource center/stash is fat quarters. My favorite size. VBG

    The largest quilts I make are crib size. They are fun to make and get finished in a reasonable length of time.

    Sewing with a smile, Dottie

    —Dottie on October 2, 2014
  • I definitely have too many to count easily. I’m going to guess it’s more than 100, but my sewing room is not organized at all, so there could be more! I have started grouping them by color, though, which should help me use them up.

    —Diana on October 2, 2014
  • I’ve never counted but I’d guess about 200!

    —Marianne on October 2, 2014
  • I would LOVE to have this book. Love Fons and Porter instructions, love that they use SO many and tell you how many each quilt uses. I have 4 berry flats of fat quarters Plus numerous tone on tones hiding out in my stash by color drawers.

    —Karen Falvey on October 2, 2014
  • I think i probably have in the low 10’s of fat quarters.

    —Renee on October 2, 2014
  • I have too many to count! I use them for scrappy quilts, my favorite block is the Wonky Four Patch.

    Thanks for the give-away.

    —Valerie Clark on October 2, 2014
  • I have way too many to count. They’re so fun to collect, but I really need to work on using them, too!

    —Mary on October 2, 2014
  • I have many. But I seem to think that I need more because I rarely buy anything at the quilt store without adding a fat quarter or 2 or 3. They allow me to experiment with colors or fabrics outside my comfort box without a large investment. Now I just need to find ways of using all the fat quarters.

    —Sue on October 2, 2014
  • I think I have about 50-60 fat quarters. I love to use them up as I buy them

    —Margaret Schindler on October 2, 2014
  • Can anyone have too many fat quarters. I bought more at the quilt convention when it was in my town recently. I tend to like just a few certain colors and usually buy those colors anyway.

    —wanda on October 2, 2014
  • I have received fqs from my online quilt group for birthdays and monthly for my weight loss. I want to make a special quilt commemorating my friendships and my weight loss over the past 1 1/2 years.

    —Eva Wallace on October 2, 2014
  • I’m pretty sure I have at least 2000. I just can’t resist them. Whenever a new fabric line comes out that I like, I just have to buy the fat quarter bundle for it.

    —Just J on October 2, 2014
  • I’d say I have approx. 100-150.

    —Geni Pickens on October 2, 2014
  • Many tens but less than many hundreds!

    Thanks for the opportunity! Loved so many shown here!

    —Jetta Neely on October 2, 2014
  • Probably in the hundreds. Great way to try new fabrics and collections.
    Certainly need to get them organized and then start making FQ quilts!!!

    —Marilyn Hargreaves on October 2, 2014
  • Fat quarters are too numerous to count in my sewing room—mostly individual but there are some packs too. Love finding scraps
    that go with the fat quarters. This book looks great.

    —Ellie Paquette on October 2, 2014
  • I probably have about 80 – 100. I guess I should be making more quilts!

    —Pam on October 2, 2014
  • I have collected too many fat quarters to count. I could make all the quilts in the book many times over, I am sure.

    Nancy M on October 2, 2014
  • Maybe around 40? I am just getting started in my fabric hoarding 🙂

    —Veronika on October 2, 2014
  • I have dozens and dozens with not enough time but who can stop finding the next favorite fabric and patterns. It would be sooooo nice to have my stash better organized ( as soon as I find more time!)

    —Linda W on October 2, 2014
  • More than I need but not enought that coordinate to finish a project – whoa – I must need more!

    —Rebecca O on October 2, 2014
  • Oh my. I have way more than anyone should have!! But it is so fun when the fabrics are so delicious! Thanks for the chance–I would love to win the book

    —Donna on October 2, 2014
  • No doubt about it … hundreds!

    —Mary G on October 2, 2014
  • I have countless numbers of fat 1/4s and they are stored in various ways but the best are stored on CD shelving I bought especially for them. They look so pretty and they fit beautifully on the shelves. I have used many, infact I just used 3 yesterday. I like to have plenty on hand. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    —Ondrea on October 2, 2014
  • too many to mention – would love to win the book so I could use a few!

    —Bea K on October 2, 2014
  • I really don’t know how many I have. Probably at least a hundred, or maybe a few more. I bought all of them individually; no FQ stacks. But now I’ve quit buying them because I ran out of space in the drawers that I have reserved for them! It time to break into the drawers and start making Scrap Quilts!!

    —Barb Johnson on October 2, 2014
  • Well, I collect scraps to sew with, so I don’t have many "real" fat quarters. I have won some in giveaways, so my guess is that I have about 20. Most of those are lovely AMB solids!

    —Sarah on October 2, 2014
  • Shhhhh, do not tell my husband but I have about 200 fat quarters. I just love them

    —Cathie. on October 2, 2014
  • I have a large round basket and I have all my fat quarters that I can view each time I am in the sewing room. I would think about 50. It is not nearly enough if I am to make a controlled scrappy quilt. My basket of colored fat quarters is pretty and brings happiness as I see them each day.

    —carol on October 2, 2014
  • I’m thinking the numbers range in the hundreds. That book would be great for them.

    —Jeanne on October 2, 2014
  • I have collected less than 50, I’m guessing

    —Hilda Krebs on October 2, 2014
  • I’ve always been a lover of scrappy quilts, so fqs are a first choice for me when it comes to buy fabric. I would think I have in the hundreds.

    —Florence on October 2, 2014
  • Dozens, Hundreds, Over 1,000 in my sewing room. I reward myself when I’m visiting quilt shops and I really like sets. Scrappy Fat Quarter Quilts would help me reduce my inventory. Thank you for the opportunity to win a wonderful book.

    —Robbin Golden on October 2, 2014
  • I don’t know how many FQs I have but I have a room full of fabric in various sizes including scraps. There are a few quilts in this book that I like and would make.
    Pauline

    —Pauline on October 2, 2014
  • Probably dozens – I don’t think I’m (quite) to the hundreds stage yet, but I’m working on it!

    —Karen Cohn on October 2, 2014
  • Too afraid to count…

    —Connie Gereffi on October 2, 2014
  • I have too many fat quarters to count and I still need (want) more. Scrappy Fat Quarter Quilts would be a great book to win. I could use up some of my fat quarters and then have a good excuse to go shopping for some more!

    —Linda Webster on October 2, 2014
  • I would say to many to mention. I have cases which l have been collecting for quite awhile. Really like the candy store quilt which l would love to make.

    —Anne on October 2, 2014
  • Ha Ha how do I love thee fat quarters let me count the ways. I store many in a dvd rack as I can see them at a glance plus it jazzes up the sewing room.

    —Caroline Young on October 2, 2014
  • I love FQs! They were the way I started to bring my stash, but lately I’ve been buying 1/2 m cuts insteD and using up my FQs

    —Kerrie on October 2, 2014
  • I’m pretty new to quilting so my number is probably pretty low – but I would say around 175

    —Kathy Luehrs on October 2, 2014
  • II love fat quarters! I have no guess as to how many I’ve had over the years, but presently I’ll say I have about 50-75 waiting for a scrappy project.

    —Karen on October 2, 2014
  • I have collected fat quarters in the dozens range! I would love a copy of this book and its lovely quilts.

    —Barbara Pricola on October 2, 2014
  • I have collected fat-quarters not for quilt making but for other sewing crafts, so I have perhaps 60-80, but lately I have been looking at the collection packs. They are coordinated already and look so neatly packaged. Perhaps more fat-quarters are in my future!

    —ruby t on October 2, 2014
  • Totesful. When I go into a shop and don’t see anything else I want I buy a few fat quarters.

    —Ann on October 2, 2014
  • I mostly have yardage and other smaller pre-cuts but I always drool over those FQs I see in catalogs or in our local quilt shops. I love the precut ideas out there these days and would like to try more of those patterns. Thanks for this chance to win this book. How fun!

    —Jeanne on October 2, 2014
  • I can’t wait for Think Big to come out in December. I love the blue and grey quilt.

    —Just J on October 2, 2014
  • Definitely a LOT!!I recently counted all of the 30’s fat quarters and there were at least 135! Plus, I have many more fat quarters sorted according to color stashed in plastic bins. I also have fat quarters from some wonderful Moda collections. I better not forget the Civil War fat quarters and the Jo Morten fat quarters and the Fig Tree fat quarters either. I guess my stash really grew since I began teaching in a very large quilt shop here in Phoenix! My stash of fat quarters must be close to 500 by now!!

    —Vicki Sprain on October 2, 2014
  • I’m sure I have a hundred. I don’t want to count them. I must be addicted.

    —Chris on October 2, 2014
  • I refuse to count, but I have over a hundred fat quarters, at least. dahlgren0609 at gmail dot com

    —Cindy Dahlgren on October 2, 2014
  • I honestly don’t know but I’d say dozens of them. If I never used any of them it’d be in the hundreads for sure! lol

    —Cheryl Rich on October 3, 2014
  • Way too many fat quarters to count, and my local quilting shop has just started buying from a new supplier – that’s going to add a serious amount to my fat quarter collection! The book looks like it will be the inspiration I need to start using them, thanks for the chance to win it.

    —Karen on October 3, 2014
  • I am guessing that I have about 50 fat quarters, really not that many. I am starting to purchase fat quarter bundles as that seems to works for lots and lots of projects!

    —Debbie Leschisin on October 3, 2014
  • I will guess that I am at around 60 or so. They are so easy to pick up, and so often on sale. Why not grab one, or two, or more?

    —DebV on October 3, 2014
  • I love fat quarters, but only have maybe 3 or 4 dozen presently. I am still new to quilting and just love books like this! I get so excited with the colors and patterns! Would be fantastic to win! Good luck everyone!

    —Jonnie on October 3, 2014
  • too many to count – I especially love the fat quarter collections.

    —Barbara Rogers on October 3, 2014
  • I probably have 6-7 dozen. My fabric stash is not as impressive as some.

    —Janice Mc Laren on October 3, 2014
  • I’m a fat quarter addict! I love collecting them and am going to use several to make the pinwheel quilt in the book! Thanks!

    Barbara Barthle on October 3, 2014
  • Oh my, I have about 26 drawers (2 rows to a drawer by color) so I’m afraid to actually count them. I love my fat quarters and am using them all the time and joining a scrap club has helped. There are times that fat quarters are like paper, if you leave them alone in the dark, they multiply and a local quilt shop has sales about twice a year of $1.00 fat quarters, so that doesn’t help in reducing the stash. Doing scrap quilts are so much fun and I am always looking for new patterns. It is fun in the scrap club, we are all making the same quilt top and using our scraps but each of them look so different. Would love to win this book to help me reduce my stash a bit. I had one collection of fat quarters and never used them, then I finally found the perfect pattern. The top turned out wonderful.

    —connie b on October 3, 2014
  • I am the Fat Quarter Queen! And I have many subjects in my kingdom, or is it queendom?

    —Diane on October 3, 2014
  • I don’t have very many…a few that I picked up at a local craft/quilt shop…I like to be able to see all the patterns in the fabric so try to shop local rather than mail order…

    —peggy hendrick on October 3, 2014
  • This is an amazing collection of quilts! I love every one.

    —Cheryl on October 3, 2014
  • I have not collected any because I am new to quilting and basically sew squares and rectangles. I use fabric that friends and relatives have had in their homes for years. So I am using other peoples stash. I know that as soon as I feel comfortable with quilting my stash will grow to include fat quarters. The possibilities are endless

    —Virginia Bronner on October 3, 2014
  • Way too many to mention! Every time there was a sale at a fabric shop, I was there. My love for fabric is addictive. My grand daughters come to grandmas to shop for fabric! Lol!

    —Jan on October 3, 2014
  • More than 100, I’m ashamed to say!

    —Deb Nelson on October 3, 2014
  • Very many fat quarters. Several quilts worth I’m sure.

    —Darlene on October 3, 2014
  • Definitely in the hundreds! If I find a fabric that I am absolutely in love with , I buy at least a yard. But there are many fat quarters that I know will build up my stash and give me the range I need to complete projects.

    —Shar on October 3, 2014
  • I suspect that my fat quarters probably total in the hundreds: both in the gorgeous packages from particular lines and individual ones. Love fat quarter patterns!! Thanks for the chance to win !!

    —Laura on October 3, 2014
  • wow, they’re all over the house… way too many but I love ’em and keep bringing more home! 🙂

    —barb k on October 3, 2014
  • I have about 10 that are waiting to be used. I like to buy fat quarters when I am visiting somewhere. They are my souvenirs. But I have hundreds in my mind being sewn in my mind while I am doing other things and want to be quilting.

    —Julia on October 3, 2014
  • At least a few dozen fat quarters, more yardage, and many, many scraps already cut into strips and squares. A Fons & Porter "Scrappy Fat Quarter Quilts" would provide some great inspiration!

    —Mary in Massachusetts on October 3, 2014
  • I try to limit my purchases to projects I’m working on. That being said, I have lots of projects to start working on. 😛

    —Lynn Bohlmann on October 3, 2014
  • I think my number of FQ would be in the thousands!

    —Claire on October 3, 2014
  • I mostly buy fabric by the yard, but I probably have close to a hundred fat quarters, as they are a fun way to buy fabric when I am checking out a new fabric shop or browsing the retail booths at a quilt show. Also plenty of genuine SCRAP pieces – would love to win this book!

    —KathleenT on October 3, 2014
  • I’ve worked in the fabric department of a major craft and fabric store for over twenty years. Let’s just say I have enough. I’m hoping to retire soon so I’ll need ideas and inspiration to make use of this stash! I’m looking forward to getting started.

    —Mary Smith on October 3, 2014
  • As a garment seamstress I tend to buy yardage but I am now starting to buy fat quarters and have between 12 and 50. They have been purchased for specific projects so I need to go quilt!

    —Gail on October 3, 2014
  • I have hundreds as I have never seen a fat quarter I didn’t love. I guess I am a fat quarter junkie! I do have some in tubs for specific projects but then sometimes I steal from one project for another. I hope I live long enough to get them all done!!

    —Maureen Klebe on October 3, 2014
  • I just love fabric in any form. Don’t keep track by numbers-too scary. Love scrap quilts so just keep collecting.

    —Dar on October 3, 2014
  • I started reading the comments and I must say I, too have hundreds of fat quarters. At this writing I have 50 for a project called, "Chocolate and Cherries." I have a complete bin of just Christmas fabrics, not to mention countless other holidays and other meaningful projects. Good luck to all.

    —Jonnie L Staggs on October 3, 2014
  • I probably only have about 100 fat quarters. I love scrap quilts because I hate to throw away any fabric. They always seem to turn out beautiful and remind me of the quilts from long ago when our ancestors had to use what they had.

    —Lynn on October 3, 2014
  • I have hundreds of fat quarters. Love Love them. But it’s a challenge to come up with something to do with them that I will be happy with. (-:

    —DonnaRae on October 3, 2014
  • I probably have around 100-150 fat quarters that I have collected. Theproblem is I hate to cute into them!

    —Sherril M. on October 3, 2014
  • I only have half a dozen fat quarters right now – I keep using them up!

    —Mary P on October 3, 2014
  • Too many to mention, but, never too many!

    —Linda Niedermayer on October 3, 2014
  • I have hundreds of fat quarters and have run out of room to store them. Will that stop me? Probably not.

    —Sue on October 3, 2014
  • I have too many to count! But, for those of you who feel you have too many, you can send them to me (I’ll even pay postage). Barring all else, on shelves or in totes on the north wall of your house, they work well for insulation with winter coming on. Just like I cannot have too many FQs, I can’t have too many ideas for using them up, so would love this book. Thanks.

    —Brenda on October 3, 2014
  • There are so many fat quarters in my sewing room – probably nearing 300! They are the easiest item to purchase in a shop without feeling guilty. I would love this book and probably make nearly all of the patterns, they look so fun! Thanks for the opportunity to win this book.

    —Carole on October 3, 2014
  • Oh, my gosh, probably hundreds! I’ve used most of them, because I love to do scrappy quilts. I’m down to about 20 now. I’d love to have more, thanks!

    —Stephanie on October 3, 2014
  • I don’t know exactly how many fat quarters I have. I have my fabric stash under two sides of my king size bed and on a set of shelves my husband made for me. If I need more fat quarters, I can either buy them or go into my stash and make them from yardage. It would be great to have a book that featured fat quarters because I don’t have any that do.

    —Jeannette Bessler on October 3, 2014
  • I have probably about 100 or so fat quarters, mostly reproduction fabrics. It’s one of the first things I look for when I go to a new quilt shop. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Mary on October 3, 2014
  • MANY,Many,many – – – I can’t even venture a guess as to the number of fat quarters I have right now. They sure are fun to fondle!

    —Liz on October 3, 2014
  • Not enough but that book is certainly inspirational – I’ll work on getting more – just got two cabinets to hold all my fabric, so I’ll keep one section just for fat quarters!

    —Susan Meredith on October 3, 2014
  • More than I could probably use in a lifetime. Hope I win!

    —Dorothy B on October 3, 2014
  • Way Too many to mention!! I Love scrappy quilts!And am Always saving those scarps!!! They seem to turn into Quilts too! 🙂

    —Jeanette Spellmeyer on October 3, 2014
  • Recently I needed to re-organize and clean out my craft room, so I would say my fat quarter stash is currently between 25-30. I am sure it will only grow again!!

    —Teri Chow on October 3, 2014
  • I certainly have more fat quarters than I want to count. I have almost filled an antique china cabinet and have others in various plastic containers for UFOs. The ones in the cabinet give me such pleasure to see the stacks of colors. Talk about eye candy!

    —Nancy Angerer on October 3, 2014
  • I only have 21 fat quarters, but am new (about a year) to sewing.

    —Jan Anthony on October 3, 2014
  • I believe I have about 40, but after 4 moves I don’t really want to know. I still have unpacked boxes from all of them!

    —Libby on October 3, 2014
  • I went into the "bright bucket" one day, withdrew 44 FQ’s and couldn’t even tell that anything was missing!!

    Guess I have more than my share!!!

    —Ann Barlament on October 3, 2014
  • I have a collection of fabric and my mother-in-law just gave me hers. In the past, I bought yardage; now I don’t buy except to finish a project from the fabric I have!

    —GrrannyH on October 3, 2014
  • Soooooo many fat quarters, sooooo little time. What to do with them all.

    —Ruth Spencer on October 3, 2014
  • I do not have any fat quarters. Just started quilting, so I need to start collecting some. Have some ideas of what I want to do but need material first.

    —Annette on October 3, 2014
  • I figure about 24 that I can remember the location of but every time I dig around in my craft room I find more, so who knows? yippee

    —ChrisK on October 3, 2014
  • I know Evelyn Young & live in the same town! She is an amazing quilter! I was so happy for her to see her "Monkey Business" quilt pictured here.

    —Lynne on October 3, 2014
  • At the present time fat quarters occupy maybe 3 cabinets, but fabric…hhmm two rooms of cabinets full, neatly organized by colour. For one year I did not buy one piece of fabric, that year past with promise upheld, now have to make up for all the pretty fabrics I missed. lol This fabric will not be used up in my lifetime unfortunately as I love each and every inch of it. Winning the book would really help make a dent. thanx for the opportunity!

    —Sylvia on October 3, 2014
  • Hundreds. Sometimes I am able to find the fat quarter in yardage, but more often than not it is the only piece of fabric left. I store all of them separate from my yardage for only when I need a small amount. I hoard them, knowing I will never find that pattern again!

    —Nancy Magee on October 3, 2014
  • I would hate to count all my fat quarters, but I have hundreds of them. One of these days I’m going to start cutting them up and make some scrappy quilts!

    —Deb G. in VA on October 3, 2014
  • I have way too many fat quarters to count and they are stashed in a couple of places around our home!!!
    Thanks so much for the giveaway,
    Jacqueline in Pitt Meadows

    Jacqueline VH on October 3, 2014
  • I know Evelyn Young & we live in the same town. She is an amazing quilter! I was so happy for her to see her "Monkey Business" quilt pictured here.

    —Lynne on October 3, 2014
  • I must have over 250 fat quarters, they are folded and stored in 2 drawers so that I can see all of them. So, yes, I need some fat quarter patterns and time to make them!

    —Glenna Denman on October 3, 2014
  • I don’t have an accurate count, but it’s gotta be into the hundreds. I don’t have a large stash, but a good portion of it is in FQs! I would love to have the book — maybe it’ll encourage me to use up some of those FQs. =)

    —Evie H on October 3, 2014
  • I haven’t tried to count my fat quarters. But, I love this book and the snowballs quilt looks like one I would enjoy as well as the stars.

    —Susan Paxton on October 3, 2014
  • I have roughly seventy five fat quarters.

    —Lisa on October 3, 2014
  • Too many to mention

    —Allison C on October 3, 2014
  • Right now I would bet I have 75 fat quarters. I’ve been trying to use them up so I can get more!

    —Bridget on October 3, 2014
  • I really don’t want to know how many FQ’s there have been in my quilting life. Let’s just say you can never have too much beautiful fabric. Thanks for a chance at some more.

    —Jacqueline on October 3, 2014
  • When I began collecting fat quarters they just sat in a spare drawer, now the 4 drawers are full of them, some are set aside for certain patterns, othere are waiting for inspiration. But there are certainly lovely patters in the book, now all I need is time to put them together.

    —Debra Lock on October 3, 2014
  • Over a 100… plus a lot of yardage. and its not my fault! my husband bought me a sewing room off of craiglists that literally filled a car full of goodies, I was overwhelmed!

    —carrie on October 3, 2014
  • I have about 30 fat quarters but never seem to know what to do with them. I tend to buy far more yardage pieces and start from there. This book looks great and it would really inspire me to get on the fat quarter band wagon…I may have to buy it if I don’t win it!

    —sharon on October 3, 2014
  • Oh, I think it is too many to count. Not sure if I can count that high.

    —Donna W on October 3, 2014
  • I have , UM let me see….. I lost count of how many fat quarters that I have. I would love to win the Scrappy Fat Quarters Quilt book for ideas on how to use them up.

    —Dot on October 3, 2014
  • I probably have about 30-35 fat quarters. I had more but did a Mystery Pat Sloan BOM this year and many of them ended up in that!

    —Nancy Eriksen on October 3, 2014
  • I usually buy fabric by the yard instead of fat quarters. I want to make sure I have enough fabric to play with & I usually don’t have a pattern in mind at the time I buy. I do have some fat quarters – less than a dozen that I have picked up at different times. I tend to fall in love with the fabric & then have to figure out what I’m going to do with it.

    —Susan Clarkson on October 3, 2014
  • I have to many to mention when it comes to fat quarters or even yardage of fabric. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Renea on October 3, 2014
  • Too many to count – but a nice book on how to use them would be helpful! 🙂

    —carina on October 3, 2014
  • Lots! Lots! Lots! I could guess and say 150? Definitely want to use them to make a scrappy quilt. Would love your book!

    —Donna Brooks on October 3, 2014
  • Let’s just say 500+.

    —Donna Ward on October 3, 2014
  • I find that the fabric offered in fat quarters is some of the most versatile fabric I can get, so I never buy just one fat quarter! Most of my fat quarters can be used with many different color combinations. So, therefore, I would guess that I have 50 pounds of fat quarters! My goodness! I love fat quarters because they are so much easier to use than a quarter of a yard of fabric. So, please help me with designs for my 50 pounds of fat quarters!! I could really use this book!!!!

  • I love to have FQ’s on hand for all the little color I need so whole fat quarters well I probably have 30 that aren’t designated at this point. I have two (or more) stacks saved for just that project so another 15-20 and then there is the FQ quilt I have started and that is about 36 or so in that stack many of which are already cut up and being sewn! Fat quarters are my most favorite gift so I will just keep saving! LOL Love the quilts and the book!

    —Tonie Peterson on October 3, 2014
  • How deep is the ocean, how high is the sky? Isn’t asking a quilter how many FQ she has a rhetorical question? All I can say is that I have too many until I go into a quilt store and then I don’t have enough.

    —Linda on October 3, 2014
  • I have 209 fat quarters. I know because I recently reorganized them. So, I could really use this book. Thank you for the chance to win.

    —Amy F on October 3, 2014
  • I have not the foggiest idea how many fat quarters are currently in residence in my sewing room. I like to collect theme fabrics for special quilts. Frogs, cats, chickens, snowmen, patriotic, bugs, Christmas, Halloween are just a few of the many categories awaiting their turn at the cutting mat and sewing machine. Lately I have bought more fabric as yardage, but those little gems of fabric are always available to be scooped up and whisked away home to join the party. By the way, my husband tells all the shop owners that I own more fabric than the shop holds!

    —Linda Towers on October 3, 2014
  • Oops! I didn’t know I was supposed to keep an inventory 🙂 I’d guess somewhere between 50 and 100.

    —Sandy on October 3, 2014
  • At a quick glance, I would say, more than some, and a whole lot less than others! I’ve been getting all of my books out on the floor, trying to decide on 3-5 different quilts to start on that would help me with my stash, and I see that this book would definitely help me with my project. What a great time for a chance to win, and thank you!

    —Missy on October 3, 2014
  • Was collecting – fabric, thought I could use some of it up by starting to quilt.. Now I have yardage, and fat quarters. I have no I idea of how many fat quarters – sort of scared to count. Sure could use more ideas on using them up!

    —Karen on October 3, 2014
  • I have lots and lots of fat quarters…did I mention I have LOTS of fat quarters? I could really use this book! May have to buy it if I’m not chosen to win it LOL

    —Paula on October 3, 2014
  • Maybe 100.

    —Margaret Zupfer on October 4, 2014
  • Way too many.

    —Gwendolyn Clark on October 4, 2014
  • What a great book with lovely quilts and their patterns! I’m sure I have well over 100 fat-quarters, probably approaching 150. Time to do something with them!

    Carol Kussart on October 4, 2014
  • I have purchased many fat quarters (20 or more) just because the colors struck my fancy. Now I fold my leftovers into fat quarters for easy use!

    —Kathy on October 4, 2014
  • I am afraid to count. However, I think this book would be a fabulous way to reduce my stash (and maybe buy some more FQ’s). 🙂

    —Vena T on October 4, 2014
  • My collection is in the hundreds! Don’t tell.

    —Tamie on October 4, 2014
  • I love love love fat quarters, they are just like chocolate. Love love love scrap quilts. I would love this book. I see several quilts I would like to make.

    —Micki on October 4, 2014
  • Not nearly enough. There is never too much of a good thing, so I always "need" more. I think that this book will be a real winner with any quilter and I sure would love to have it.

    Donna on October 4, 2014
  • It’s probably way too many, but it feels like not nearly enough!

    —Kathy on October 4, 2014
  • There are too many to count. They must be reproducing in the night!

    Jeanne Meddaugh on October 4, 2014
  • I’ve only had the pleasure of collecting maybe a dozen or so fat quarters, but I would to make one of these beautiful quilts!

    Teresa W on October 4, 2014
  • I only have about 30 right now (newbie, here) and most of those were left to me by my Mom, who was just getting interested in quilting before she died. Hers will be the ones I’ll be working into a special project, or a couple projects to share with my children. Thanks for the opportunity to win. The quilts in that book are beautiful!

    —Rose Douglas on October 4, 2014
  • Now that my daughter has moved back home and has taken over my sewing room, my clothes closet is my stash closet and my fabric takes up more room than my clothes. Crazy. Fat quarters? 100? 200? Now if I could just find them under there….

    —Ann Christman on October 4, 2014
  • I’m just starting to collect fat quarters. Am new to this. The quilts in Scrappy Fat Quarter Quilts look fabulous. My grandkids would love them.

    —Gwen P. on October 4, 2014
  • Wow…not nearly enough, but always looking for more. Probably have 100 plus. Would love this book!

    —Sue Sharp on October 4, 2014
  • I’m afraid to count how many fat quarters I’ve collected. Many years ago, they fit in one basket. Well, that hasn’t been the case for ages! I would love to do something with them, but I don’t know what! This book would give me some inspiration…

    Linda H on October 4, 2014
  • Too many to count. I usually buy small amounts. I don’t tend yo buy more than 1 yard at s time

    —Marguerite Namdar on October 4, 2014
  • I’ve not counted but I would say I have 50. I need to find a better way of organizing my FQ. Throwing them in a box from IKEA isn’t the best way to organize. 🙂

    —Ginger on October 4, 2014
  • How should I know? It’s a number in constant flux – buy some, use some…

    Laura B on October 4, 2014
  • I typically buy fabric in yardage for specific projects, so I don’t have many fat quarters at all. After seeing the gorgeous quilts in this book I am rethinking my buying strategy. If I don’t win I will buy the book and start collecting FQs. Hmmmm, where to store them?

    —Barb Keeler on October 4, 2014
  • I don’t buy Fat Quarters and yet the little darlings keep appearing in the sewing room. I must make 3 or 4 FQ quilts or quilt projects to get them under control. I’m afraid if I turn out the lights they’ll multiply! LOL!

    —Michelle Kearns on October 4, 2014
  • I have a bin full. I’d say about 100.

    —Bro AJK on October 5, 2014
  • QHHH I’m loving these quilts! Thanks for a chance to win the book to make them!
    Paulette

    Paulette Doyle on October 5, 2014
  • I have several but not sure how many–more than I likely realize. This book would be a great way to learn to use them–great designs. Thanks for the offer!

    —Pam Blake on October 5, 2014
  • I have large sterilite tubs of fat quarters…. about a dozen or so at least. I have them by color and use them for scrap quilts all the time. I love my fat quarters!

    —Judy Danz on October 5, 2014
  • Usually I buy by the yard. When I have less than a qtr yard left over, the remainder goes into my separate storage for" first to be auditioned fabrics" for new projects.

    —Rivka Hamdani on October 5, 2014
  • Don’t know how many, a drawer full. I need to start using them.

    —Elaine on October 5, 2014
  • To be honest, I am afraid to count the fat quarters I have collected, I know it is quite a stash! (But I love them)!

    —Mary Jane on October 5, 2014
  • I have mostly yardage – I usually purchase 1/2 to 1 yard pieces so if I were to convert my yardage to fat quarters…I’d say I then have several hundred plus about another 50+ of regular fat quarters.

    —terry hawkins on October 5, 2014
  • I don’t have very many fat quarters, but I sure would love to start collecting to make some of these fantastic quilts. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Karen Funk on October 5, 2014
  • 50

    —Debbie Pete on October 5, 2014
  • I still have a lot more yardage than fat quarters, leftovers from the days when I made whole cloth quilts. Then I saw the light. I began piecing and my life hasn’t been the same. Except I still have a hard time buying those little pieces of fabric Or maybe I can buy them but when I only have that little bit, I hate to use them up. I probably have 100. Thanks.

    —Mom C on October 5, 2014
  • Probably hundreds! It’s a great way to collect a lot of different fabrics without spending a ton of money.

    —Karen M on October 5, 2014
  • Well I had my husband built me a cabinet for them & then we ended up adding a addition to our home for my fat quarters & supplies :} quite a collection I<m afraid but a girl needs choices :}

    —Kathy Clifton on October 5, 2014
  • I probably have around 100 or so, but I have lots more yard cuts of fabric. Looks like a wonderful book. Thanks, Patty

    —Patty Bretheim on October 5, 2014
  • I have collected too many to count and enjoy everyone of them

    —Cindy on October 5, 2014
  • I have about 60 FQ’s. And I love them!

    Jeneta@PlumJam on October 5, 2014
  • I have 60 – 70, just added 10 more this week-end. Love to keep them in the stash pile.

    —Dawn Smolsky on October 6, 2014
  • I mostly have yardage, as it allows me more flexability. In fat quarters, I have less than 50;

    —Linda on October 6, 2014
  • Not enough! Never enough! I’m slowly growing my stash and love projects that use precuts!

    Nesta on October 6, 2014
  • Any time I see a fabric that speaks to me but is not going into a specific project, I buy a fat quarter. I’ll figure out what to do with it later. I must have hundreds of fat quarters.

    —Juanita Woodard on October 7, 2014
  • I don’t have any fat quarters so I had better get busy collecting them!

    —Judi on October 7, 2014
  • Way too many to count! This book looks awesome and I really hope I win! Thanks for the opportunity and giveaway!

    —susan on October 7, 2014
  • So many that they are giving the stars a run for their money.

    Sheilah on October 7, 2014
  • Oh gosh, hundreds! But I’ve been cutting them up into 5″ charms and 2 1/2″ strips.

    —Suzanne on October 8, 2014
  • Last time I counted, 50 fat quarters. I have add a few since then, so I’ll say around 75.

    —Darla C on October 8, 2014
  • I have a drawer full of Fat Quarters. I have too many drawers to count of Yardage. I guess I’ve not really thought about making quilts with Fat Quarters. I’ll have to give it a try!

    —Martha on October 8, 2014
  • This looks like a really great book . I would love to win it.

    —benita moore on October 8, 2014
  • Maybe 100, but most of them are in bundles that are just to beautiful to use, so I just look at them on my shelves. Thank you for the chance to win. 😀

    Rita McCart on October 8, 2014
  • I have not done fat quarters before, but looking at these quilts has made me a believer.

    —Glenda B on October 8, 2014
  • Only the "tens" – I’m still a beginner 🙂

    —Carmen N on October 8, 2014
  • I probably have less than 100 fat quarters. But if you added in the equivalents in the half yard and full yard cuts, it would add up to more than I want to think about or admit to!

    —Pearl on October 8, 2014
  • Too many to mention. I do a lot of applique, so smaller pieces work well for lots of color variation. Thanks for the draw!

    —Edith Gorzo on October 8, 2014
  • I have too many to count. I love buying them.

    —Ellen Ayers on October 8, 2014
  • Last count for fat quarters was over 1000…no kidding. I get carried away when I purchase fabric for my stash. I’ve learned, when Joann Fabrics is discontinuing a certain fabric; they cut the remaining bolts into fat quarters and sell. They had a beautiful light grey with white tiny leaves yardage that I wanted for my stash, so everytime, I found that fabric in FQ, I purchased. Although, I have used some of them, I still have over 150.

    Keep smiling,

    Lynnita Shipman on October 8, 2014
  • Too many to mention over the past 25 years after I learned to quilt from na died in the wool "everything" had to be done by hand, quilter. One of these boks would help me use some of them up.

    Fran on October 9, 2014
  • Many, many…mostly in blue,
    red and neutrals.

    —Inger Martinson on October 9, 2014
  • Wow, I would be afraid to estimate, but I have 3 drawers of those larger white plastic tubs w/3 drawers full. I also have them scattered in other tubs and drawers, I cut fat qrts out of left over fabric from quilts I make. I have enough to make a few of the quilts in your book. Thanks for the chance, your ideas would make some beautiful gifts for people Iknow.

  • I have been collecting fat quarters for thirty years. I couldn’t begin to guess how many!

    —Anna Marie Werner on October 9, 2014
  • I have dozens and dozens of fat quarters! These lovely patterns would help me to use them up and give them away!

    —Patti on October 10, 2014
  • Fat quarters are like flowers in my garden; I don’t count them, I just enjoy them.
