I would give it to my BFF who makes between 75 - 100 Project Linus quilts every years since I have known her (2006). debilohr@sbcglobal.net

Sallie said...

I would give it to my DD because she is new to quilting and could choose her own fabrics. Thanks for the chance!

Siobhán said...

I would send it to my friend Melissa. In June she left her husband and three young adult sons to go to Tennessee to care for her terminally ill mother. She expected to be there for a month but is still there, at great personal and financial expense. None of her mother's extended family have offered to cover her for even an extended weekend so she could go home. She inspires and humbles me with her selflessness. Hand piecing has been a sanity saver and I know she'd love some new fabric.

Sharon said...

I would send this generous gift to my beautiful sister in Arizona. She does my long-arm quilting and would appreciate such a special gift. Her quilting is absolutely wonderful and I appreciate her so much. Thanks! sharhen93311 at gmail dot com.

I would love to watch my grandmother having fun picking out such pretty fabric. She first introduced me to quilting. She is not able to sew much herself these days, but sometimes we work together. She lives in a small town and doesn't have the selection of FQS.

Becky S. said...

I would LOVE to send a FQS treat to my Mom. She has been sharing her leftover fabric from her Vintage Modern BOM with me so I can make a set of blocks too.
I would love for her to win the gift certificate so she can buy the finishing kit for her quilt.
Thanks so much for the generous giveaway!
Happy Valentine's Day!!!

My most wonderful friend Esther, who is always there for me. She is a gifted quilter who inspires me with her creativity and skill, and is my mentor is all things quilty.
This is a generous giveaway, and I would love for her to benefit.

Anonymous said...

I would love to surprise my stepmom. She is one of my best friends and really does so much for me, my dad and my grandparents!She loves to sew and would be SUPER excited to get this gift certificate!

Rachell said...

I would use it for myself: but I would get a bundle of Pieces of Hope and make a Swoon or Melissa Corry's Starburst, and display it then give it away or auction it off to support Autism families.
reillyr2(at)hotmail(dot)com

Cindy Sharp said...

I think I would pick my friend Kelli. She is everything a best friend out to be when you are knocking on 50 and the kids are mostly grown. She is the sister I would pick for myself.

Kirsten said...

I would choose my Sister-in-law as I know that she would really appreciate being able to choose from your fabulous store!

Melissa Clifford said...

Oh do send it to my BFF! She would be so happy and excited. Me too...just to be part of you giving it to her.

Stephanie said...

"You never appreciate something until its gone" is so true. My mom loves to quilt and sew, but my sisters and I never cared to learn. Now there is 800 miles between us and I'm learning to sew. I can't get back those opportunities to learn from my mom, but I now appreciate her input and long-distance direction. I would love to give my mom this gift certificate to say thank you for all of the patience and instruction that she has given to me. Thank you for this give away.

Schatzi said...

I'd give one to my little sister Maiya, because she had kittens when I showeed her FQS's marvelous selection!

Pat said...

I'd give this to my daughter. She loves fabric and enjoys sewing and crafting. She's always encouraged and supported me and I'd love for her to enjoy this gift!

Kristine said...

My mom. She needs to be exposed to the awesomeness that is the Fat Quarter Shop.

dominobunny said...

I would nominate my sister Sara. She is new to the world of quilting and has taken to the fabric stashing side like a duck to water. She has a new baby and so many projects that she wants to work on that anything to help her get those projects underway would be a gift to both of us.

Wendy said...

My mom who taught me to sew. She is always so supportive of me, and my biggest cheerleader!

PB in Texas said...

For my sister Deana! She is a new quilter and has found a great love for beautiful fabric.

pollyjo@embarqmail.com

Sherry said...

I would send it to my sister. We love to get together and sew whenever possible. She is always helping out others and is the perfect hostess for family gatherings. I would love to see her purchase fabric just for her to create something fun.

Shruti said...

I would pick my Friend from US - Emily! And buy her some AMH fabric with it! She is crazy for AMH! shruti[at]13woodhouseroad[dot]com

dortha said...

I would love to send it to my friend Fredia. She has been taking care of sick folks in her family and now she is having a health scare herself. She could have a good time using it and she would appreciate that she was being thought of.

shez said...

i would definately surprise my mum,what a wonderful giveaway.xx

Mimi said...

OMG!!! I would love, love, love to send this amazing gift to my daughter... who has just shown a great interest in learning how to quilt... eeek! I am probably more excited about this than she realizes!!! Thanks for the chance to share the love!!

Mommarock said...

I would send it to a fellow blogger and quilter BillieMick. She is a blogger and quilter who is always there to help and answer questions. She helps out with things I may be stuck on and just is a generally sweet and nice person. What more could you ask for in a quilting buddy??

Jodi said...

My Sister would be my pick. As a mummy of 2 toddlers who is just getting started with quilting she doesn't have a stash to work from and we all know we spend our money on our kids & household first and ourselves last when we are mums so I think this would be a lovely treat to help her spoil herself and get something to help her enjoy her new hobby.

Mom2RyandSis said...

I would love to give my Mom a Fat Quarter Shop gift she is the best quilting friend I have!

Ali said...

My mom too, she just started quilting again and is having trouble getting quality quilt fabric down in Mexico. Thank you for the giveaway!

Jess said...

I would give it to my friend jess who has been having a rough few weeks. Fabric shopping would certainly help cheer her up!

Connie said...

I have a new friend who is just learning all things sewing and embroidery. She is such a sweet person. This would really help her fabric stash get a great start. c.teasley@yahoo.com

Jo said...

I would give it to MYSELF. Yeah, that's right. I am tired of being on a "fabric budget". (bought my sister a sewing machine so we could "bond" and it stays in the box *sigh*)

Crystal said...

I would give this gift certificate to my daughter, who turns 12 in April. She has been learning to sew and quilt, and has been stuck using my stash fabrics, lol. If she had a gift certificate, she could choose exactly what she loves and the fabrics that inspire her!

Samantha said...

i'd send it to my lil sis who is learning how to sew. smiller321@rcn.com

Monica said...

My older sister.
Silverize at hotmail

Nicol Bates said...

I would love to give this to my Mum, she has always been there for me and is currently teaching me how to sew. She is being very patient while showing me and is allowing me to use all her material/thread, etc. to learn so I would love to give her this voucher to replace some of that stuff. :)
Thank you
Nicol

Anda W said...

I would love to give my wonderful mom a gift certificat to your wonderful shop! She is an accomplished seamstress and an inspiration! awolk at rogers dot com

April @ Sewing Novice said...

I would like to give it to one of my blog followers. I would probably randomly choose someone that has already commented on my blog. Comments mean so much so it would be nice to give back. I love this idea because it's so easy to get wrapped up in ourselves that we forget to include others. Hopefully this would qualify!

scottylover said...

I would love to send this to my friend Lynn because she needs a little pick me up right now. And we all know that nothing is better than fabric for a pick me up! :)

Sandy A

MissMary said...

I'd choose my friend Diane. She and I connected when she pushed $20 in my hands and said, "Buy color for your classroom." My solution was a bolt of muslin and several bottles of Rit dye. She didn't even realize I sew. Recently she's been getting into quilting as more babies are born in the family. I'd love to bless her back for her step of faith to invest in me - and what has become one of the best friendships of my life.

Lidia Holliday said...

PLEASE send a special delivery to my friend J'Nell Perkins. She helped me work on my very 1st quilt 2 years ago.
blholliday@shaw.ca

Lyn said...

I would use it myself and use the fabric to make gifts!

Tamie said...

I would love to give this to my oldest daughter. She is pregnant with her first child (our first grandchild) and she could pick out the fabrics for her baby's first quilt!

llavmc said...

I would send it to my daughter since she wants to learn to sew and quilt. Ldunshie@gmail.com

Kelly Smith said...

Definitely my mother-in-law. She has been making pants for my niece for the better part of a year now. My niece has Down Syndrome and is not in normal sized clothing. So my wonderful mother-in-law has taken it on herself to sew her pants for her, so she can have some cute clothes to make her feel more like a normal kid. I think she definitely deserves some fabric for herself.

gccmom said...

I would love to give a gift certificate to my best friend, Capi. We have been sewing buddies for years. Since neither of us has a sister, we have become chosen sisters. She is always there for me. Next week is also her birthday. How surprised she would be.

tawny_tawny said...

I would send it to my Auntie Carol. She is my quilting guru and is always so patient when teaching me new things. She definitely deserves a fabric treat!

MC said...

One of my friends just started her first quilt and I would love to win her some fancy fabric!

Anonymous said...

I'd LOVE for my friend Doris Merritt to receive this surprise. Doris is a wonderfully kind & thoughtful friend and she runs a special site making cooling scarves and other things for American soldiers overseas, using nothing but her own cash/stash and through donations. Her website is located on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Keeping-Cadence-Of-Love/181058258649399.

supersara20 said...

I would choose my mother. She's a fabulous lady and taught me to sew, who better to get a great gift!

Chiska said...

I would send it to my "baby" sister as she just got a sewing machine and has a baby of her own. Thanks!

Carol said...

I would send a special delivery gift card to my sister Kate. We share a love of quilting which is nice having this special bond. I live in AZ and she lives in CO so we don't see each other very often. I was able to go visit her and my other family during the Christmas holiday. We had a fun sewing day together. I know she would love a layer cake of Juggling Summer as we discovered this nice fabric on one of our quilt shop excursions while I was in Colorado. Happy Valentine's Day to my favorite on-line quilting shop.

Matt Taylor said...

I would pick my wife. She is not only an amazing wife and mom but she is sacrificing to allow me to go back to school. Her support is unwavering and I know how much she is sacrificing for me. She puts others first always. Her comfort and relaxation come from sewing. She deserves this! wlfpack82@gmail.com

Erin Erickson said...

I'd pick my friend Leila. She keeps us all laughing and is a great motivator and cheerleader! She has just started making bags and quilts. She sews clothes and costumes for herself and her kids, which are fantastic and we all envy her talent. Because until now she's mostly sewn clothes, she hasn't built up the quilting cotton stash that the rest of us have been working on for years. And she has cool taste so I'd love to see what she would pick out!

ritainalaska said...

my sis! she's deserves a good thing for all her goodness.

Caroline said...

I would send it to my sister, Kristine, who is always there to answer my sewing questions.

Judy1522 said...

I would give it to my daughter so that she could start learning to quilt.

Maria said...

I would give it to my DD who is just starting on her patchworking journey...
Thank you for the lovely giveaway.

Isabel said...

Yes! My nephew's wife-Jasmine. She has twin 20 month old girls who are just about old enough for cute quilt fabric pinafores and pillowcase dreasses...and little ruffle skirts with cowboy boots! Little girls should have cute dresses!

Mhairi said...

I would send this to my very dear friend in France. I know she has been having a hard time and this would certainly allow her to buy lots of pink fabric - just perfect for a Valentines day surprise.

annemarie said...

I would love this for my daughter - she is new to sewing and expecting her first child. This would be a boost for her - fabric to feed her new found hobby.

JudyCinNC said...

My daughter - working all her life and raising two children and homeschooling three grands has left little time to sew. I want to start her stash and then teach her to quilt. Yeah!!! for us. Judy C in NC thanks you.

Craft Mad said...

I would like to give this to my lovely friend Sue, who hosts our once a month sewing group we call Stitch and Bitch. Her work place is really making her stressed.
She is my very special friend. To use an often quoted phrase, she is a kindred spirit. Thanks, Meran
merantaylor@yahoo.com.au

Anonymous said...

Of course I would give it to my friend Alice. She is a breast cancer survivor and her husband died in 2011. She is a Magnificant seamstress who has just recently taken up quilting. This would blow her away (and make her quite happy too.)

Elsa said...

I've got a friend that just learned to sew (her husband got her a sewing machine for her birthday) and I'd love it if she won! Her name is Jo ~ it's so wonderful to see her enthusiasm and what's she's already learned to make!

Amy F. said...

I took my daughter to the Vermont Quilt Festival last year and she has been hooked on quilting ever since. She is only 11 but already has plans to enter a quilt in the festival one day. She now sews a lot including making her own stuffed animals and reusable fabric lunch/snack bags which she sells at craft fairs.

She would enjoy a gift certificate tremendously!

Jill said...

I would love to send a Valentine to my sister. She is one of the most generous people I know. It would be great to let her know how much she is loved.

mary said...

Since home sick from surgey, I am making quilts for the Rainbow house which helps abused kids. thanks for the giveaway!!!

Marsha said...

My sister! She is a prolific quilt maker and she teaches her granddaughters to sew. She even lets them use her best machine! She is quite an inspiration.

Liz said...

I would send it to my Mom. She doesn't get out much in the winter so shopping for fabric through the internet would be a warm winter treat for her:)

Whitney M said...

I would give the gift certificate to my mother in law! She got me started quilting and does so much for us, she so deserves it!

Tammy said...

I would pick my baby sister charlotte. She is just getting into sewing and crafting good. She has her very first lovely lil granddaughter.And could use it to make her soemthing adorable. My sister has allways been their for me and gives of herself so freely to help others. She is anurs eint a nurseing home and has been for many many years. She loves her patients. And I think she would be thrilled to win something just for her. conn_and_vans_mom(at)yahoo(dot)vom

Heather B said...

I would send it to my sister, Brittany. She just bought her first machine and it has quilting capabilites (I have a basic machine, jealous)and she needs to grow her fabric stash! I've been picking a pulling from my stash to help her out. I can't wait to move back to Texas so my sister and I can quilt together! Thanks for the chance to win! mrs(dot)hbraun(at)gmail(dot)com

Amy DeCesare said...

I have a bloggy friend who lives in England. I know she loves your site, and fabric shopping in the UK is so limited compared to here in the USA. It would be fun for her to get a bunch of her favorite fabrics from across the pond!

Angela Yeh said...

Oh, my mom would love it:)

JaneB said...

I would give a very special Birthday present to my friend Sue because she's a Valentine baby, the best of friends and a fabric and quilting lover.

Coffee Break Whatever said...

I have two grand daughters...one is already hooked on quilting ...she is just turning 7 next month. THe other one, 12 almost 13..she lives with me and she loves crafts, but no real direction...just "stuff" crafts. I bet if she could choose her own prints from a drawing she wins..it would spark her quilting talent that I know is in there somewhere! They don't teach sewing in Home Ec class anymore in junior high..they don't even offer Home Ec anymore so I am h er only option!

Andee said...

I would give it to my girlfriend Kathy...she has suddenly gotten into quilting and is always digging in my stash..time for her to start her own!

Ashley G. said...

I would give it to my sister. She is having a baby in August and has lots of projects in mind for her new little one.

Sewbig said...

My daughter is my choice for this gift certificate. She has just moved to an apartment with her two small children after living with us for almost a year. When baby number two was 10 weeks old her husband announced that he was finished being married. She has had a difficult year and is starting over. I am sure some fabric to make something special to personalize her new home would give her a real lift. Thanks for the chance to win this for her.

devorageller said...

I would love to send one of these to my mom. She's having knee replacement surgery next month (both knees) and could definitely use some fun new fabric to play with during the six weeks she will be recovering. devorageller@gmail.com

Linda Fleming said...

I'd send this to my friend, Gillian, who introduced me to quilting several years ago!

lflemin@msn.com

Lindsay(PACountryCrafts) said...

I have a special friend who I would love to give this to! I am pretty sure she reads this blog, so I am not going to give her name here, but she is so caring and thoughtful and generous!

Kathy said...

I would love to give a treat to my friend Ellie. She is a wonderful quilting buddy and always generous with her stash!

Suzie H said...

I would choose my mom. She does so much for everyone else and deserves a little pampering!

supermom82(at)gmail(dot)com

Pinspot said...

I would pick my sweet friend Dana. She was my go-to sewing buddy/teacher before I moved away. She made me a beautiful scrappy throw sized quilt as a going away gift. Her birthday was a few weeks ago, I know she would love this belated gift.

Mary said...

I would send the special treat to Beth, a friend of mine from my quilt guild. I did not know Beth before joining the guild a few years ago, but she made me feel very welcome. She is always doing special things for me, is so fun to be with, and is a wonderful inspiration.

Cecilia said...

I would love to give this bundle to my friend Jean. Jean is 85 year sold and is always making quilts and giving them and fabrics to others. She is always willing to help me, either with instruction or fabrics on my my projects. I would love to surprise her with a gift. Thanks!

Becky (My Fabric Obsession) said...

I would love to treat my quilty friend Denise. She's taught me how to long arm and lets me use it whenever I want. She's been a great friend and a wonderful sewing buddy!

VickiT said...

I would love to send this to my future DIL. She and my son have had a really hard time last year with her losing her job while pregnant with their first child and then my son losing his just before their baby, our Granddaughter was born. They had to move in with us for awhile and I have given her free reign to use my Husqvarna D1 machine anytime she wants and told her I'd teach her what she doesn't already know how to do.
Now that our Granddaughter is 1 yr old (4 days ago) she doesn't need to feed her as often and I'd love to allow her to choose some fabric she likes so she can make something on her own.

Ramona said...

I would like to gift this to Kristy, a guild member just beginning chemo treatment. I think it would be a small thing that would make her smile.
Thanks FQS for being such a huge supporter of the quilting community.

Susan said...

My daughter - with lovely fabrics we will make time to sew together!

Barb said...

I would send it to my friend, Kristine. She taught me how to knit, and listens to me complain about all of the UFO's in my craft room.

Carolyn Bahl said...

I would pick my daughter. She is so creative and makes beautiful quilts as well as other crafts. She also helps me alot.

Helen L said...

I DO have a special quilty friend that I would love to send a gift certificate to! Her name is Melissa and she so deserves it!!! She has adopted 4 children, two from the foster care system here in Calif. Several of them have had learning disabilities and she has had to work hard with them every night to help them in their school work. She has also sent her oldest son on a two year mission to Guatamala, and had the anxiety of having him in such a dangerous place! Not to mention the cost of the mission, which is around 10,000 dollars, which her son helped pay for, but I have a feeling that she and her hubby had to help with the cost also. She currently serves as the leader in our local church women's group and donates MUCH of her time to helping out in that organization in many different ways! She has also served in her local quilt guild for many years, spending quite a few years organizing the bus trip for the women to go to PIQF. She is such a GOOD person and is always willing to help anyone. She deserves much more than 50 dollars, but I know that she would be thrilled to death to receive this gift! Thanks for the chance on her behalf!! I'd be so happy if she won!!!

Farm Quilter said...

I would pick my daughter as she is new to quilting and doesn't have too many supplies or a stash yet. With a 5 year old and being pregnant, there is rarely any money left over for treating herself to some quilty goodness. Thank you for the opportunity to win a gift certificate for her!

eli said...

I'd pick my wife who just started quilting and sewing. We just can't afford much fabric right now, so it would really make her day!

snoggletweeng @ gmail dot com

Patty said...

This would make a great gift for my daughter. I have started teaching her to quilt and she is using fabric from my stash. This way she could pick something new for herself.

Marguerite said...

I would give it to my dear friend Brenda. I always drag her to quilt and sewing shops. We always have a great time and she would really appreciate it.

Katie said...

I would love to give this to my sister! We both learned how to quilt about the same time. She has a really limited budget so she can't buy all the fabric she wants for all the quilts she wants to make. I would love to treat her to something like this!

jednoiglec said...

I would love to prepare such surprise for my bloggy friend Joanna. We first 'met' on our blogs and the similar attitude to modern quilting was the reason why we started meeting in real life. Now we are organizing some blog events together and we will be even co-lecturers on quilty workshops:)

Jennifer Lowe said...

I would give it to my quilting buddy Sue. She's been having a rough time lately and nothing cheers you up like new quilting supplies!

Christa Krebs said...

I would love to send this to my best friend, Wynter. We were neighbors when my 3 yr old son, Isaac, was diagnosed with leukemia & she watched my apt while we were at Children's Hospital. Six months later, Isaac was diagnosed as terminal & I was advised to take him home to live his final few weeks of life. Wanting to make Isaac happy, upon returning home Wynter surprised him with a huge "Half" birthday blowout! I learned that Wynter's son was also 3 yrs old son & named Isaac. Our Isaacs quickly became the best of friends. Wynter and I spent every moment of Isaac's final days together. I can honestly say they were the happiest six months of my life. On November 3, 2009, Wynter's husband was on his last day of military leave before returning to his overseas deployment the next morning. Without hesitation, she left her husband to support me as I prepared my son's body for the funeral home. She spoke at my baby's funeral service when I could do nothing but weep. It's been 3 1/2 yrs but she is my best friend whom I love unceasingly. I can never repay the love, support, & kindness she has shown me, but I'll do my best to try!

Christa Krebs said...
