Sushi Rolls from Lecien Fabrics

If you haven't seen or tried them yet, we've got some fun stuff to show you today! We mentioned them briefly during our last stint at Fall Market, but they've been lurking discreetly in the shadows of Fat Quarter Shop until today. We're showing them off to the whole quilting world -- with giveaways to boot!

Sushi Rolls are the cutest pre-cut additions to the Lecien Fabrics family, and out of this variety of six, every quilter is sure to find a necessary addition to her fabric stash. Whether it be a basic, floral, or cutesy (kawaii) print, think Sushi Rolls! (Did I just make you hungry? Sorry!) What's more, you can click to view different sides of the roll, so you'll know exactly what's included!

These Sushi Rolls contain 100% cotton fabric strips 2 7/8" wide, great for smaller-pieced quilt and sewing projects. Blue and Red Minny Muu Sushi Rolls feature itty bitty children's prints -- think sailors, teddy bears, polka dots, daisies -- baby quilts worldwide rejoice!

Le Petit Jardin Sushi Roll features a wide range of little floral prints in yellows, browns, blues, pinks, and creams, as well as dots and checks. It's sophisticated vintage in bright, fun hues! (See that top image up there!) If you've got a fetish for Lecien floral collections, like Mrs. March Antique Rose and Antique Flower Collection, this is the roll for you!

And finally, Lecien gives us three "Quilter's Basic" Sushi Rolls -- Primitive Quilter's Basic, Bright Quilter's Basic, and Prairie Quilter's Basic. They all use the same ditsy flowers, checks, and dotted swirl prints, but in three different colorways. Simply look around to find the one that suits your taste.

Now for the fun part -- we've got some lovely personal news at Fat Quarter Shop to share! Comment with a guess as to what it is, and we'll pick three random winners on Monday, March 2, to receive a Sushi Roll of their choice! Good luck, and happy Friday!

(P.S. I don't know why they are that size, Chooky Blue -- you'd have to ask them! LOL)

A new baby on the way? That would be a lovely bit of personal news.

Rachael Adele said...

New baby is my guess, too.

Becky said...

A new sibling for baby Emma is my guess.That would be super news.

Duranee said...

I think most folks are going to guess that someone's expecting a new baby! :D Also, what a great idea...sushi rolls! Now I want sushi for lunch. Mmmmm.

Dandelion Quilts said...

Must be a new baby on the way! These are pretty exciting though, too!

jerseystitcher said...

Guess I'm not the first to guess a new baby, hmmm? ;-) And those sushi rolls are gorgeous! Definitely a much better idea than the raw fish kind!

~Michelle~ said...

Ditto on the baby comment... I was @ Disneyland on Monday, and I could swear there was something in the water, because there were a LOT of preggo women walking around the parks. It just seems to be that time... I heard something about how people tend to have babies during economic recessions, so that could explain it.

~Q~ said...

Another guess for a new baby on the way. :) BTW, I just rec'd my first ever FQS order and I was floored with the quality of how my order was packed, the envelope the receipt was in. Thank you so much - I love FQS and will be back shopping again very soon! :)

Sherri said...

My guess is that Emma is going to be a big sister!!! That would be terrific!

J said...

Yes, yes... new sibling for Emma. Though it could be you are coming out with your own fabric line? I'm thinking you gals at FQS would probably know exactly what quilters would want to see next... since you sell so many great fabric lines...AND sushi rolls!

Chookyblue...... said...

I am so boring but a new baby.........that was my first thought unless someone got engaged........

Chookyblue...... said...

oh boy we could all be in trouble if it is not a baby.........lol........

Chookyblue...... said...

sorry me again
why have they gone with a 2 7/8 inch cut........????? maybe you could answer this on your blog........the other rolls are 1 1/2 or 2 1/2.......

Hilltop Dreamer said...

Personal News = Baby news? Congratulations!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Did one of you have a baby? Now we know why sushi is on the menu!

MichelleB said...

Beth said...

Ooooh, is Emma going to have a new baby brother or sister???

Sheryl said...

Well, I was going to go with new baby, but since that seems to have been taken, how about another new addition...puppy,maybe??

carrie said...

Somebody won publisher's clearing house???

Tracy said...

New car! I vote for a new car.. Heh the baby comment is overrated!! Although a baby for the new car would be nice too!
Just a guess ;)

Perry said...

Hmmm, I guess I will go with the consensus of the other posts and say a new baby. Is Emma going to be an older sister?

Doodlebug Gail said...

Oh BABY ..... I think Emma is going to be a big sister!

The Brandleys said...

Wow everyone has guessed my guess! I think Emma is getting abrother or Sister!

Lisa D. said...

The sushi rolls are so fun! My guess about your news is a baby brother or sister for Miss Emma?

Barbara said...

I would think the best personal news would be a new baby on the way. I know that expecting my very first grandchild is the best thing for me, so I guess everyone should have a new baby to love.

CBear said...

I am adding to the NEW BABY tally...

I want one of these rolls soooooooooo bad!

Jo Anne said...

Who's having a baby?

Ashley said...

I realize it's not original, but that's the first thing I thought, so I'll go with new baby as well...

Love (love!) the new sushi rolls... I need one (or two or three!) for my stash!

Thanks for the great giveaway!

SarahB said...

It seems we all have the same guess! My first thought was a baby on the way!

I adore the Lucien florals! Drool-worthy!

Carol said...

wendysquilting said...

Is Emma going to be a big sister?

Anne said...

WHAT? Kimberly's having OCTUPLETS? Wow!

Pat said...

I think that Emma is going to be a big sister too!!

Nancy said...

Well, my guess first thought was a new baby, but then I thought .... hmmmm, maybe an up coming wedding because you used the word 'lovely' to describe the news. I can't wait to hear what it is!!!

Becky said...

Add me to the list of is there a new baby on the way? :)

Stasia said...

I know I'm not being original but I'm voting a baby, also... and wishing you the best!

Jen in NY said...

Emma's going to be a big sister is my guess! That would be so joyous!

free indeed said...

Like most everyone else, I'm guessing a sibling for Emma! Whatever the news, Congrats! Sushi rolls? What next!?

RustyBird said...

My guess is a new baby, too.

PamKittyMorning said...

I'm guessing like everyone else,new baby. Or maybe a pet!

I think the rolls are 2 7/8 for half square triangle cutting?

Collette said...

I guess a new baby. Or wait, that puppy! ;0(

BarneyFife said...

Either a baby or you're opening a brick and mortar store.

L. Gray said...

Ooooh!! though I am not alone in my 'hunch'...the first thing that came to mind is a new little pea in the pod. Are you?!?! We want to know! C'mon, the suspense is awful!!

The Winn's said...

I would guess a new baby as well, or maybe buying a new home? I'm happy for you, whatever the good news!

Vicky said...

Babies are so lovely, so that's what I guess! :) :)

everythingquilts said...

Baby oh baby!!!

Laura said...

I'm going with the vast majority (or is it unanimous)? Kimberly is pregnant!

Ann said...

My guess is that someone is craving Sushi and there's a new baby on the way for the Jolly family.

Cory said...

I'm gonna guess the obvious as well. There must be a baby on the way! Thank you for the opportunity to win a Sushi Roll. They look like fun.

Dawn said...

Well, it seems everyone has suggested a new baby! So my guess is going to be...someone is getting married!

highwaycottage said...

Oh, a hard choice, but I'm going to guess an Engagement?

One Little Thread said...

My very first thought was a new baby, perhaps two???
Alison

Kim said...

What could be more personally lovely than a baby? Yep, that's my guess! Just like most of the other 64 commenters who came before me! LOL!

julia said...

Hi!
Maybe the Sushi Rolls are 2 7/8 to make sure that you can make 2.5" HSTs without a fancy ruler? (And trim down the roll for squares) Just a guess...
But I'm not that good in guessing...so I'd joing the million others and I'd say there's probably a new sibling for Emma on his/her way...?
Have a great weekend,
Julia

NanainCA said...

Considering "personal news" I would think it would be baby as well, However how about a spin on this "TWINS" wouldn't Emma have fun!! Congrats if this is the case, if it isn't boy we all think there should be!!! hehe. LOVEEEEE the sushi oh my gosh, just think they can be use to make have square. At least it seems all my Classes&BOM lately need 2 7/8. I am happy that they will be at Fat Quarter Shop!!!

jlk said...

I'm going with new baby. It seems to be a popular guess!

Jackie said...

MMMMM..... Sushi made my most favorite way... in fabric! Love them! I bet the good news is a new baby brother or sister for Emma is on the way. What else could it possibly be??

Greenmare said...

yup I was going to guess a new baby too! What CUTE sushi rolls!!! Are you going to do egg rolls next? maybe cinnamin rolls? Tootsie rolls? are you inspried yet???

Carrie P. said...

Well the only thing that could be lovely personal news is a baby coming? I love the little prints on these rolls.

DianeH said...

Just to be different I'll say "It"s a Puppy", ok it's probably a baby.

Susan said...

There's no better news than a baby! But any happy news is great!!! Beautiful fabrics - pick me!

lovetostitch said...

Well, I am answering as soon as this came thru my computer, but see I might be a tad late....my first guess would be of course the pitter patter of little feet, a baby?? Yes..... so maybe a new puppy too??? LOL!!!

My guess also for why the size of Sushi rolls - so you can cut them up and and make half square triangles??? This would give us half the work of cutting done.

Barbara said...

Emma is going to be the BIG SISTER!!!!!
Would be lovely......
Hugs, Barb

cbehlke said...

I'm thinking a new future "quilter" is on the way? Could that be the happy news??

C. said...

I guess my thought was the same as everyone else's... Emma is going to get a new baby sibling!

And I love these sushi rolls. I think the Bright Quilter's Basic is my favorite.

cbehlke said...

I see a new baby in the future!! a new Quilter I hope.

Natalie said...

hmmm, could be a new baby! but, it could also be a new house, or an engagement...maybe your adding a member to your team at Fat Quarter Shop, or designing your own fabric??? All of it is so exciting, I can't wait to find out!

from little acorns said...

I think I'm disqualified from 'guessing' (!) ;o)
- but could it be that the Lecien Sushi rolls are 2 7/8" wide - because the yardage is 'packaged' by the meter? . . . & maybe this measurement works best with dividing a meter? . . . Just a thought!
xo, Bren

Kim said...

I see so many have commented before me and are guessing what first came to mind.. a new baby. BUT, personal could mean more.. an engagement, a special birthday, anniversary, or even a relocation..Can't wait to hear the news.. I love jelly rolls, I am sure there will be place to stack a few pieces of shushi!!

cbnovick said...

I guess I am the @ 81st customer to guess it's a 'baby on the way'?? My second guess is that FQS is expanding?? BTW, L-O-V-E teh website...& L-O-V-E Lecien fabrics too!

Annelies Dease said...

....thinking pink or blue and pitterpats of baby feet???? Thanks for the chance to win some sushi.....is that a pregnancy craving????? XXX Annelies

Frances said...

A new baby, perhaps???

Dot said...

Perhaps a new baby---either biological or new to shop. Either would be a joy for you.
Best wishes.

Tiny House said...

New baby? Or someone's getting married? :O)

alda said...

maybe a baby or a marriage???
I think we will know it in the next days....

Tricia said...

New baby or grandbaby?? Maybe just a new puppy... :)

sndy1 said...

Another 'new baby' guess!

Alissa said...

Exciting personal news... that usually means baby baby baby!! Here's hoping that's what it is!

Kelly said...

Hmmmmmmmm.....is Kimberly expecting a new baby?????? Oh, I hope so! That would be delightful! :-)

Z4zrGVlwsOx1U83PFB5__8km9r41Aw-- said...

I'm not going to be original either because new baby is my geuss too :-)

These rolls are so beautifull.. really hope to win.

Z4zrGVlwsOx1U83PFB5__8km9r41Aw-- said...

OOps..... Have no idea why I receive such a wierd display name in my messages.
Will have to check up my openID settings.

In any case my name is Sharon Rotem.

Thanks Again,
Sharon

Carrie in KC said...

Well, I haven't been reading long, so I don't know much about who runs this blog. Since everyone else has guessed a baby, how about a vacation coming up?!

Thanks for the fun giveaway!

aztel2000 said...

I think I hear the pitter patter of little NEW feet!?!

Eileen said...

I was thinking Emma would love to be a big sister...could that be the news? By the way, Lecien has always been one of my favorites, would love to win any of those yummy sushi rolls!

Marylou said...

A new baby seems to be the answer of the week ..

Brenda said...

I'm guessing that Emma has a new brother or sister on the way or perhaps both.
Unless your are expanding your business or there is a marriage, retirement or some other happy occasion coming up.
Whatever it is I love your site, your fabrics, and all the helpful information and service you provide along with the recipes.

Diane said...

I think you are giving Emma a new brother or sister! What could be more exciting that adding a new little one to your stash?

Betty J in OKC said...

A new baby/employee is my guess. I'd LOVE to get my hands on some of those Sushi Rolls. My theory is that they're cut that way so it's easier for the mathaphobic among us to cut HSTs easier.

lil said...

hmmm, I go also for the new baby, as a lot of others
I just love the mini moo sushi

Kathy B said...

New sibling... gotta be!

meg99 said...

Everyone has the same answer,(of course I do) so here's the second guess. She won the lottery of one billion, so she will share to us???
Sushi Rolls are wonderful! Especilly Quilter's Basic will match well to other fabric.

Jennifer said...

I'm guessing baby... but I'm pregnant and so excited, so I see babies everywhere!!!

Christina said...

So many seem sure it's a baby. I was thinking along the lines of a new fabric line/manufactorer you were going to carry...?

pfeiffer4 said...

Have three little ones myself...I vote for a puppy! But I guess I have to go with the crowd on this one. A BROTHER for Emma!

Katie said...

I just want you to know that I thought it was a new baby before I read any of the comments :)...Congrats, if that's right...Katie

phyllis said...

Emma is going to be a big sister? But, that's what everyone else seems to be quessing too.

Or its time for Emma's next birthday?

ha ha it's all about Emma, isn't it?,

Anne said...

It looks like I'm not alone in thinking pink or blue. Congratulations if you're sewing baby quilts.

Anne

Giddy for Paisley said...

My original guess was, baby. But everyone said that and I just can't think of anything else so I am going with baby.

foofanagle said...

Maybe someone got engaged?

beth said...

Yes, A new baby would be a wonderful thing. Perhaps someone is going to be a grandma as well.

Susan said...

I know!!!
Twins for Kimberly!!!
-Sue Shepherd

Barbara McD said...

Hmm.... could it be there's a new "bundle" on the way to the Jolly Jabber? A boy bundle? (and I'm not talking about fabric!)

Barbara McD said...

And I bet the rolls are 2 7/8" to help with cutting 2" finished half-square triangles!

Ellen B. said...

A new baby? A new pattern design for Sushi Rolls? Both, would be nice.

K Cotton said...

My guess is a new baby... but everyone is thinking same... so maybe you are expanding the store because look how many comments you have already!

Melissa said...

A new baby was my guess too.

nanann said...

Someone is pregnant! Congrats!

Andrea said...

I'm going to guess a new baby too!!!

Gretchen said...

Everyone is saying a new sibling for Miss Emma, but I'm going with a PUPPY!

momid5 said...

OHKAY...it's Kitty...or maybe Emma's new toy...my own children always thought the newest baby was brought just for THEM...but hugs and love for all happy personal news! and yes that Sushi with little blues sounds just right.

t4ester said...

I never thought I'd say this but I want a sushi roll!

AntipodeanJulie said...

Baby Jolly redux. (And if so, congratulations!)

If you're taking orders, can we get a brother for Emma? I have so many more boys to sew for than girls, and it will be great to see some of your fabulous quilting friends turn their creative mind to boy colours! (Clearly your lovely personal news is all about me!)

I'm still not clear on sushi rolls (it's just me, isn't it?) Are these still width of fabric rolls, or are they shorter?)

Amanda said...

I think that it might be addition to the family...

janetsue2 said...

I'm also, guessing a new baby. that's about as personal as you can get.I'm going to have a new grandbaby in October.

Kathy said...

I'm guessing that Emma is going to be a big sister! (Congratulations and what wonderful news if I'm right!)

Sue said...

I agree with everyone it has to be a new baby.

Michal said...

ok, it's either a new baby or... are you opening a brick and mortar shop?

Kate said...

Given the baby boom that seems to be happening, Id have to guess a new bub too.

Jodie said...

Well my first thought was a new baby, but maybe a fabric line of your own.

Inga said...

How about a new furbaby? It's just a couple more legs with less labor pain.

:) Whatever it is...Congrats!

anna said...

Ah... I'll take a risk... a baby? LOL!
Whatever the news is, congratulations from afar, I can sense happiness in the air! :)

Nancy said...

Well, I immediately thought of a new baby (I made three baby quilts this weekend!) but looks like I am not the first...or the second!!

Nicole said...

Add me to the baby bandwagon, but perhaps on the back burner would be you designed a line of fabric. With either CONGRATS!!!!

acecraig100 said...

It sounds like we are guessing that a baby is on the way! Not that you couldn't have other exciting personal news.

linda said...
