a fat quarterly giveaway!

Have you heard about Fat Quarterly yet? It’s a brand new modern sewing and quilting e-magazine and from the the sneak peeks I’ve seen, it looks like it’s going to quickly become a favorite of mine. Patchwork & quilting patterns, new fabrics, interviews with your favorite fabric designers… what more could you ask for?

Fat Quarterly is a collaboration between six fabulously talented bloggers (you can read more information about each of them here). According to Kate, “With Fat Quarterly, we hope to provide a source of ideas and inspiration for anyone interested in the modern sewing and quilting aesthetic. We have assembled a truly global team with diverse skills and styles, but connected by a love of handmade items and of sharing the joys of creating with others.”

    I want to see ideas for placemats, table runners and potholders.

    Megan Presley says:

    I want to see quilting patterns (both for putting the quilt together and for actually quilting it)! This sounds so neat!

    SongBird says:

    This looks really interesting – I’d like to see ideas for things to do with those odd fabrics, the ones you have just a fat quarter of “because it looks cool”, but then are stumped by once you get home!

    I think this is going to be totally awesome. I am interested in anything improv and Gee’s Bend-ish.

    Emily says:

    I’d love to see detailed how-to’s. I feel like a lot of magazines have neat patterns, ideas and projects but that they don’t always give great tutorials, which as a new quilter – I LOVE. I know that with quilting, you can do something ten different ways – none of which are right or wrong, just different – so perhaps something like tutorials could benefit people of all skill levels.

    Tong says:

    I’d love to see a lot of beautiful and inspirational pictures, and I’d love to see some home decor projects (not just pillows!), maybe some fabulously modern window treatments, curtains, roman blinds, that kind of stuff.

  7. 7
    Jill says:

    SO exciting! I would love to see an photo heavy step by step on quilting for beginners. Most patterns just say, quilt, baste, bind. I’d also love to see several patterns on scrap busters. What a great giveaway! Thanks!

  8. 8
    Deb C. says:

    Wow. Can’t wait for it to come out. I love new ideas. I would love to see a monthly segment on rulers. You know–all those rulers we’ve collected promising to make creating triangles more accurately, piecing more precise etc… we need a refresher course on how to use them, and what blocks we can create with them. That would be awesome!

  9. 9
    Robyn Brown says:

    I would like to see some scrap projects. I’m always looking for ways to use scraps

  10. 10
    Ruth says:

    Ahh, so exciting! All the sneak peeks they’ve shown so far look wonderful. :)

  11. 11
    Linda says:

    I, also, would like ideas for all of those “OMG, I HAVE to have that” purchases! Plus, I am fascinated by selvedge quilts. I don’t know if I would have the patience to make one, but I would like to know basics like how much should I cut off of ALL my fabric’s selvedges when preparing to cut pieces.

  12. 12
    Kristy V says:

    I would love to see tons of beautiful photos, as well as how-tos, patterns, maybe even basic sewing tips?

  13. 13
    Johanna says:

    I would love to see what quilts I can do with striped fabric.
    I know that there are some sort of scare that could be created with something stripy but there must be more patterns I could do with it.
    Aaand, I purchased a lot of fabric that looks awesome but I have no idea what to do with it. I don’t want to cut it into tiny pieces but I don’t want a quilt that has just squares in it. So, a quilt that has big pieces of fabric that are accentuated but still has some sort of a nice pattern. I have been thinking about this for months but can’t come up with something…

  14. 14
    Leisel says:

    Wow! Amazing. . . I just love getting inspiration. . . lots of color and beautiful pics!

  15. 15
    Lael says:

    Ditto on the detailed how to’s. Another source of inspiration – new fabrics and new ideas for combining them!

  16. 16
    KateL says:

    I an new to quilting and ready to take the leap on making my first quilt. I would love some focused topics for beginners.

    Would love to get some modern quilting inspiration. Hurray for this new adventure!

    Maria says:

    I’m big on lots of photos. Patterns are good too, so I don’t have to do math!

    Modern quilt how to’s like Gees Bend.

    Anya says:

    I’d love to see ideas for machine quilting designs. Thanks for the chance!

  21. 21
    Jacquie says:

    What a great idea! I would love to see some more ideas and patterns for smaller home projects.

  22. 22
    woolcat says:

    I’d like a magic brain download that enables me to match up my points and do half square triangles that actually look good.

    Well, OK, then – I would definitely like to see designs not just for piecing but for quilting too.

  23. 23

    How fun! I am a fairly new quilter and would love anything and everything! I especially love to see quilt patterns, such great inspiration!

  24. 24
    traci says:

    finally! seriously, i can’t look at the current quilting magazines anymore. i would LOVE to see a good tutorial on making pieced backs…. how do you keep them lined up straight? thanks!

  25. 25
    Jeanine says:

    Funky and modern quilt patterns. Instant gratification projects!

  26. 26
    Jenny says:

    i think it would be great to see the editors fabric storage, studio space and stash management tips. I would also like to see these folks challenged with really baaaaad fabric and see what they can do with it! i have lots of baaaaad fabric i need good ideas for!

  27. 27
    Luba says:

    I too would love to see ideas for using those fabulous fat quarters we buy cause we just have to have some of that special fabric and then don’t know where to use them. There are lots of patterns for scrap quilts, but their fabrics are always co-ordinated or they show co-ordinated yards of backing.

  28. 28
    Alisa says:

    Sounds wonderful! I’d love to see some information on the basics. Choosing fabric, basic construction as well as other projects (besides quilts) that we can make with fabric. I’ll be purchasing every issue. Good luck with the launch.

  29. 29
    Crystal says:

    I just love to look at beautiful pictures of quilts people have made. It gets my creative juices flowing and helps me to put together ideas for quilts of my own. I also would like to see any kinds of tutorials. Looks like it is going to be a great magazine. I’m excited to see more!

  30. 30
    Heidi F says:

    oohh very exciting. I would love to see quick projects along with tips and tricks.

    I’m heading over to their site to check it out right now!

  31. 31
    Jolene says:

    I’d like tips for machine quilting, such as types of thread people use. Also lots of photos and simple quilt patterns.

  32. 32
    Madeleine says:

    I would love some easy stuff and a challenge as Jenny proposed would fun I think! Thanks for the giveaway. :)

  33. 33
    Chelsea says:

    Bloopers! just kidding, kinda. (It would be nice to not feel alone with having to Make It Work.)

    I would like to see fun block ideas and different interpretations of it. I stalk block swaps just for the ideas.

  34. 34
    Andria says:

    I would like to see a lot of tutorials.

  35. 35
    Nancy says:

    I would love some sewing patterns for gift type things…for teenagers, the men folk..

    what a great idea..

    Lynn says:

    I’d like to see quick quick quick projects! And stuff for the home as well.

  37. 37
    Sarah says:

    Thanks for the giveway! From the sneak peaks I have seen Fat Quarterly looks amazing!

    I’d love to see some machine quilting ideas. I feel like I am in a rut with stippling and straight lines.

  38. 38
    Rhonda says:

    I would like to see the tricky little ways to make blocks and/or tops in easier ways than they initially look — like strip piecing then cutting into blocks rather than cutting and sewing individual blocks.

  39. 39
    Katie B says:

    I’d love to see a pattern for a modern bag!

  40. 40
    Megan says:

    I’m so excited about Fat Quarterly! Some of my very favorite quilters are putting it together! I would love to see lots and lots of new patterns for quilts, and I’m sure we will.

  41. 41
    Shawnna says:

    I already have them on my list of blogs to keep up with! Can’t wait!

    I love old quilts and am falling in love with more modern ones. I think it might be fun to occasionally feature an old quilt pattern; show an example of an old quilt in that pattern and then show it worked up with new, modern fabrics to see how they’re similar and different!

  42. 42
    Bren says:

    How cool! I would love to see lots of detailed pics that generate motivation to try new things! Cant wait to see it!!

  43. 43
    Leanne says:

    From what I can see, Fat Quarterly is going to be on my must have list no matter what they put in there. I think that quilts that challenge us to work on different techniques along with ones we can just zip together would be fab (but it looks like they already have that going on, doesn’t it?).

    I am so looking forward to this ezine!

  44. 44
    sharonj says:

    Great! I love the idea of having a more modern themed magazine! Looks like there will be lots of great projects to inspire us! Thanks for the chance to win a issue. Sharonj

  45. 45

    I’m pretty hyped about this new ezine, and am really looking forward to seeing lots of modern quilts for inspiration, and hearing about how they are made, and in particular, quilted.

  46. 46
    Corrie says:

    I’m easy to please. Just having tutorials and patterns for quilts and other projects would be awesome!

  47. 47

    Thanks for the giveaway! Scrap management/projects would be great!

  48. 48
    Leah S says:

    Fresh Start… sounds like an interesting perspective on quilting. I hope there’s stash busting ideas in there! :)

  49. 49
    Virginia says:

    Oh pick me. I’m new to quilting and I know I could learn so much from this!

  50. 50
    Fara says:

    I had not heard of the Fat Quarterly; thank you so much for letting us know about it! I looks like a very interesting eMagazine and I’ve already been inspired by what they have on their website. I look forward to getting more ideas from FQ (and maybe I’ll be lucky and win the first issue!)

  51. 51
    Wendy P says:

    I’d love to see more great patterns like John’s Split Nine Patch that was on Moda Bake Shop. And guest posters. There are so many creative bloggers out there.

    I can’t wait to see what they offer! I already added fatquarterly to my blog roll.

  52. 52
    Jan Hatchett says:

    I’d love to see quilting patterns for hand quilting and simple designs for machine quilting, something with a vintage feel.

    fabulous! i would love to see articles on quilts from precuts and rolls.

  54. 54
    Sequana says:

    I’ll add my voice to the “tricky little things” in techniques…….plus, really new supplies that I might not have heard about. For instance, the Clover forked pins that I found by accident over a year ago, and people still don’t know about them.

    This looks like a wonderful idea!

  55. 55
    Ruth says:

    What a great giveaway! I’d love to see modern quilt patterns that are easy to follow!

  56. 56
    Elizabeth says:

    Thanks for the giveaway…Magazine looks great!
    As for ideas, How about tips to drawing out your own blocks and doing the math–math always kills me. There are so many virtual quilting bees going on, how about how much fabric do you send and what do I do when someone sends all prints? type questions. Sewing machines featured and reviewed by people who use them. Quilt Service Projects–ways we can use our craft to make a difference.

  57. 57
    Kim D. says:

    I would love to see some quilting motifs to use for my domestic machine. Thanks.

  58. 58
    Lindsey says:

    I have taken a sneak peek and it looks like it will be filled with inspirational ideas. I would love to see articles about deciding on machine quilting pattern once one’s top is completed.

  59. 59
    Brady says:

    This looks like a great new online magazine. I would like to see an article about when you have a piece of fabric you cherish and how to figure out what to do with it, like what pattern, what fabrics to add to it, etc. Thanks!

  60. 60
    Milica says:

    I am so excited about this E Zine! I am a new quilter and was impressed with the tutorials they already have up and going. I would love to see some information on modern color trends, color theory and fabric mixing/choices and incorporating vintage fabrics/re-purposed fabrics (clothing etc.) into modern quilts.

  61. 61
    Crystal says:

    One of the reasons why I love looking at other’s blogs is because you learn so much from others that you wouldn’t learn on your own! Thanks for the info on them. I would basically like to see tutorials on how they do things, or a step by step on how they do the “modern” quilts. I love tutorials

  62. 62
    Jessica C says:

    I’m looking forward to this. The quilts in that picture look great. I would love to see modern machine quilting patterns that are more than stippling but not the traditional feathers. I love all-over quilting, but I need some ideas. I’m stuck in a rut. Thanks for a chance to win!

  63. 63
    Holly says:

    Oh I can’t wait! I would love to see how to make more modern wonky blocks!

  64. 64
    BECKY says:

    Love it! I’m just beginning to get into quilting, so I need some motivation/inspiration to get started!

  65. 65
    Suzy says:

    Cool! Maybe some tutorials for items other than quilts. Scrap buster projects would be handy too!

  66. 66
    DianeY says:

    I love to see new approaches on how to do things. Sometimes I feel like I’m in such a rut doing things the “old” way when there are new ways, and new tools, to make things easier & more enjoyable

  67. 67
    Rene' says:

    I’m excited to see what this new magazine has to offer. I would love to see modern twists on traditional blocks/quilts.

  68. 68
    Adrienne says:

    I would love to see an article on ways to find hard to find fabrics or hints on finding designer fabric sales.

  69. 69

    I’m excited about this mag! Love seeing what “real people” are up too, and their tips/tricks :) Thanks for the chance.

  70. 70
    AftonJanelle says:

    Oh fun! I have to agree with a lot of the gals on here – some great, fun, funky machine quilting designs and how tos. I’ve seen some great straight line designs, but wonder ‘how did she make her lines sooo straight? Premarking? And what’s the easiest way to premark?”
    I’d also love, love, love to see some different ideas on how to make quilt labels that aren’t hand written.
    Thanks!

  71. 71
    traceyjay says:

    so exciting!

    Can’t wait to see it. :)

    I’d love to see quilting techniques that use just a regular ‘ol sewing machine. :)

  72. 72
    Liza M. says:

    I’ve only really made three quilts, so I’m still pretty new to the whole quilting thing. I’d love to see some new patterns with easy-to-follow instructions and precise measurements for fabric. I’ll echo the other ladies’ ideas about scrap buster projects. Who doesn’t need those?

    Thanks for the opportunity! Fat Quarterly looks awesome!

  73. 73
    Nicole says:

    I signed up yesterday with them!

    I’d like to see a section that has tips and tricks!

  74. 74
    Lauren says:

    How exciting. I would love to see bags! I love bags, purses, make-up rolls. . . .those are my favorite things to make! :)

  75. 75
    Amanda says:

    Maybe some different types of patchwork projects that aren’t quilts. Or maybe different things to do with quilt blocks. I think that would be neat.

  76. 76

    If that is the cover, I’m already in love. I always am interested in knowing more about the people who make the quilts and their design thought process/decision making.

  77. 77

    Like all quilting mags, I would like to actually see content that isn’t just a bunch of patterns/projects.

  78. 78
    duff says:

    I’d like to see an article on choosing color. This by far has been the most difficult area to find a speaker/instructor for our quilt guild.

  79. 79
    Emily says:

    As a new and rather thrifty quilter I’d love to see some projects not intended to use up stuff only from yor stash (as I can’t afford to keep too much without using it right away). Maybe something using thrifted sheets or sourced fabric from men’s shirts/ties? Also something that takes the traditional quilting process and uses it to make something that’s not a quilt (stuffed animal/clothing/bags/photo album covers? Someting small tha would make learning the quilting process more attainable without spending my life savings. … It took me a looong time to start quilting because I was so afraid of ruining the expensive fabric. :) Oh and anything with gorgeous fabric! :)

  80. 80
    Sarah Vee says:

    I would love to see mini workshops for playing with bold prints, dyed fabrics, and making your own fabrics. Thanks for the heads up. And the chance to win a copy!

  81. 81
    upstatelisa says:

    how about improv quilting? ideas for machine quilting? dyeing fabrics?

  82. 82
    ~Michelle~ says:

    Maybe a BOM (or BOQ, as the case may be) or 2 each issue – keep us thinking about things we can do for VQBs, etc.

  83. 83
    gwyneth says:

    i am excited. i’d be interested in a beginner’s lesson for designing your own fabric

  84. 84
    Lynne says:

    Well I’m always asking everyone the same thing so I’ll ask again here – I would always love ideas for making traditional paper piecing (especially hexagons) fresh and modern. I know you’ve already done it fabulously and they’ve already given us a sneak peek of a beautiful hexagon pillow which is really fresh and modern but just keep em coming because I’m addicted at the moment to sitting in front of the tv or in the garden with the kids with hexagons. I’m even planning to take them on holiday with me as I’ll have no machine on holiday and already thinking about the colours and patterns I’ll use (and I’m not going until August!) Really excited about FQ though.

  85. 85
    Anita says:

    I would love to see more traditional block patterns made with fresh, modern fabric.

  86. 86

    I only recently started quilting, so personally I would love to see some basic quilting tips or tricks of the trade. I also love the more modern patterns.

  87. 87
    Ramona says:

    I think it’d be fun to do a quilt along, I’d also second/third/fiftieth the request for more QUILT help, (rather than “quilt as desired”)

  88. 88
    Terri says:

    I was very excited about this new e-zine when I first heard about it. I have been loving all their sneak peaks that keep popping up here and there. Sounds like such a cool venture to be part of! I would love to see fresh ideas for patchwork in non-quilt projects. I like making quilts, but like to sew lots of other projects too.

  89. 89
    Amy W says:

    oooh! pretty! I’d love to see information about color theory. I have a stash of vintage fabrics to use, which makes things a little more challenging because I’m not using, for example, a line of fabrics from a particular designer that are meant to go together. I need some better ideas about how to make color combinations that work.

  90. 90
    Jennifer says:

    Projects for things to do with the Fat Quarter packs (12 FQs) I receive monthly as part of a fabric club. I love getting a variety of fabric for not a lot of money and would love suggestions on how to use the FQ packs.

  91. 91

    I’m new to quilting and although I’m getting the techniques down easily, it is choosing/coordinating fabrics that overwhelms me. Looking forward to this first issue!

    Also, strategies for scrap management. Oh, and good ideas for using up FQs.

    I’d like to see a mystery quilt or block of the month style sampler with a new block in every issue.

    Jaime says:

    I’d like to see some how-to throughts on wonky blocks and other free-style, modern quilting. I’m part way through my first wonky project, and I’m in a kind of a ‘I-don’t-know-if-this-is-right’ paralysis.

    Daisy says:

    I’d love to see some beginner projects and instructions for someone who is crazy about these cute modern quilts but is trying to learn all on their own. I would love some small baby quilt and lap quilt ideas. I’m so excited!

  106. 106

    I am wanting some interviews. I would love to “get inside the heads” of the people whom I look to for inspiration. Just to get a glimpse of what inspires them to make what they make.

  107. 107

    I would love to hear how some of the designers of modern quilting got discovered. Was their blog the first thing people noticed? Or did they market themselves? Very curious how some quilters, fabric artists get “found”. Thanks for contest and chance to have question answered. :)

    Audrie says:

    It would be great to see more modern quilting (quilting magazines are so hit or miss), not necessarily patterns since I don’t use them, but for inspiration. And interviews / guest posts by modern quilters to find out what their inspirations and backgrounds are.

  112. 112
    Staci Payne says:

    I’d love to see bags with zippers in them! I love a bag that I can’t accidentally dump, since clumsy is my middle name. Also love seeing modern interpretations of traditional blocks, and new ways to use those wonderful HUGE prints that I find so hard to resist at the quilt store, but so hard to actually use.

    NIchole says:

    thanks for the heads up about FQ, I’ll be checking it out. One thing I’d like to see is various quilters’ sewing spaces and thier organization system for fabric.

  125. 125
    kelly O! says:

    Would love a section with organizational tips, and suggestions for putting together a studio (furniture, not just fabrics…I know, I know. lol)

    Meg in CT says:

    Me, me! I’d love to see some small, easy-to-finish projects for around the house–ideas for pillows, placemats, coasters, etc.

  127. 127
    Maja says:

    I’d like to see a walk through of someone planning a new quilt. I’m new to quilting and have a good eye for fabric and design, so seeing the process someone else uses would fascinate me.

    dana says:

    I would LOVE to see creative ways to use up those teeny tiny pieces of scraps that we all save for years waiting for the PERFECT project!

  129. 129
    Susan says:

    Practical aesthetic. In other words – since the mag’s name evokes 1/4 yard fabric, something that would be useful perhaps in the home (potholders, oven mitts, table runners, aprons, curtains and ties, lap quilts, small clothing items, etc) that can be made with quarter-yard combinations of fabric or smaller purchases (like one yard – I’m prone to purchasing that amount :-) of fabric in combinations…? That’s a tall order – what we’d like in an e-mag. Just like fabric – there are SO MANY options! :-D

  130. 130
    Susan M. says:

    I’d love to see an entire article about color and mixing fabrics from different lines. I’m not at all good with colors and combining fabrics so I’d like help with this. Maybe a bunch of examples of mixes and matches you could do.

  131. 131

    I fall in love with birght colors more and more and would love lots of inspiring photos!

    Valerie in CS says:

    I’m quite excited about FQ’s launch — it’s happening on my anniversary! Excellence all around! I would love to see a feature on modern quilting patterns — you know, the actual QUILTING on a quilt. I have a treasure trove of blocks and layouts, but not much to go on for quilting…except straight lines.

  135. 135
    LauraJ says:

    I’m so very excited I don’t know what I want to see in future issues!

  136. 136
    Kathy says:

    This looks like such a fun magazine!

    Ack, and I forgot to say that I’d love to see some tips on how much people buy of fabric they love, but don’t have an idea for (like Sew, Mama, Sew’s stash question)

  137. 137
    Pialouise says:

    Can a Dane participate?
    I think it’s a great idea with a quilting e-magazine. I’m quite new in this quilting business, so I would love to see tutorials along with good advice. But I would also like to be inspired and see projects made by experienced quilters.
    And thank You for a wonderful blog, I often stop by.

    Angela says:

    I would love to see something like custom fabric packs – for example, if Heather Bailey was interviewed, she would make a collection of perhaps 8-12 fabrics that includes maybe only 1 of her own. It would be cool to see what modern designers are inspired by. That fabulous writing team could come up with their own, too!

  139. 139
    Shelley C says:

    I’d like to see a quarterly BOM sort of deal with the patterns to several blocks in each issue…it would give us time to get them done before the next issue came out?

  140. 140

    I’m all over FQly and can’t wait, either! I’ve been swapping a lot lately and based on what I see out there, a comprehensive binding tutorial would be very useful for many people who are new to quilting and keen to sharpen the basic skills required to finish projects with style. Thanks for the giveaway!

  141. 141
    Valerie says:

    Can’t wait for that first issue! I don’t really know what I would like to see since it already sounds fantastic to me — maybe some charity projects that readers could participate in?

  142. 142
    Chancy says:

    This looks fabulous. I was thinking maybe an article on putting together unexpected fabric choices (a la Oh! Fransson) or projects that make use of single or just a couple of blocks (a la Modify Tradition–I’m really loving most of their ideas right now).

  143. 143

    As a newbie I would obviously like to see something geared towards new quilters.

    I would love to see challenge projects with everyone using the same fabrics but doing whatever they want with them.

    Scrap projects.
    Selvage how tos/quilts
    Etc

    tjesa says:

    Looking forward to the new e-zine. I would like to see articles on quilts that haven’t been ‘bought’ by the big fabric companies…you’ve seen these quilts, they have all the fabric in one line in them. Boring! Quilting is about mixing it up, making do…may not look perfect…but a whole lot more interesting.

  161. 161
    Megan says:

    wow this is so cool… i’d love to see features about modern fabric designers and inspiration quilts.

  162. 162

    Munaiba says:

    Well I don’t know what happened to my post. It seemed to vapourize in the cyber ether! Anyway I’ll try again. This e-zine looks interesting. I’d like to see reviews of sewing blogs and interviews with sewing bloggers.

  164. 164
    Nicole Gendy says:

    I’m excited. An e-zine is such a good idea, especially for people living in other countries. I would love to see interviews with regular quilt bloggers. Book reviews would be cool too.

    Valerie says:

    Great idea to have inspiration at a click of my mouse! Can’t wait to see new and interesting ideas! I’d like to see quick projects … that have a lot of ‘bang’ but don’t take months to complete! Thanks for sharing your talents!

    adina says:

    i’d like to see more of how to incorporate all those quilts into a room decor. sometimes we try different colors and designs only to realize that the quilt doesn’t match anything else around.

    This looks amazing! I’d love to see a segment showing different modern quilts from different artists, all inspired by the same theme — Let those personalities shine through!

    Grace says:

    I’d love to see some formulas for calculating pieces. For example, I’m never sure how big to cut squares for triangles when matching it to other pieces. That whole Pythagorean theorem thing. Blech.

    pam sizemore says:

    I’m really excited about the Fat Quarterly. It will be great to have a source of inspiration and information for the modern quilter. I’d love to see information on long arm machines, with reviews from actual owners, and pricing comparisons.

  190. 190
    Nicole says:

    I am not a “quilter”, but I love fat quarters for my projects. I would love to see small fun projects that use 1 or 2 fat quarters. I am always looking for fun little projects.

  198. 198
    Mama Mel says:

    I love any kind of tutorials. I’ve really been enjoying quilting, so maybe some easy and/or quick quilt patterns, or patterns that use special cuts like fat quarters, layer cakes or jelly rolls. :)

  199. 199
    Nancy R says:

    LOTS of photos with inspiration is my first pick. I also think it would be cool if they had quilt patterns that showed a simple version for a beginner quilter, the same pattern stepped up a notch or two for an experienced quilt, and then the insane OMG! version for the advanced quilter.
    Also I love alot of the work of Japanese artists; so features by them would be great.

    Thanks for the heads-up! I’m looking forward to it, and would love to see a section on quilters/crafters who may not be very high profile, but for whom quilting/crafting is their heartbeat. One of the best things about blogs and blogging is the sense of community I’ve found. Quilting may be my side-line passion, but, boy, you all inspire and feed me, like good friends and community do. Thanks again!

  217. 217
    Audrey says:

    I would love to see some small items like placemats or tablerunners. Scrappy projects would also be great as a way to use up small scraps. Hmmm… how about patchwork clothing, too! Of course, items made out of fat quarters only would be really neat.

  228. 228
    Candace says:

    I would love to see a section where contributors discuss how they decided exactly ‘how’ they are going to quilt a particular quilt. It’s one thing to decide the colours/fabrics/design of the quilt but when you have the finished quilt stop staring at you — I find that the hardest decision I make is how am I going to quilt it. Am I going to ‘dig in the ditch’? Outline each particular piece that makes up the quilt top? Stipple — and how tight the stipple? etc.

    I never would have thought it, but I am totally facinated and in love with modern fabrics and quilts. However, when I purchase those modern fabrics, I become stymied about how to use them! I love these quilts the Fat Quarterly editors make and hope they’ll give us insight into their creative/design process.

  239. 239
    Caryn says:

    I would like to see an in-depth article on chosing a quilting design once a top is finished. Also tutorials for small items that don’t require a lot of time. Fat Quarterly looks like its going to be a breath of fresh air – can’t wait to see it!

    Colors and fabrics and designs – how do they select those combinations, where do they buy them, and why did they pick that combination to go with that quilt design – on the patterns, include pressing directions and give guidance instead of “quilt as desired. I enjoy many of the blogs of the publishers and so think may like FQ
    ….

  248. 248
    shannon says:

    This is so exciting, I can’t wait to read the first issue. I’d love to see more quilt patterns, easy, more difficult, fun, new, different designs. Using solids, precut fabrics like the charm packs, jelly rolls and layer cakes would be great too.

  249. 249

    I would love to see articles on creative, self-made women in the fabric/quilting world. There are so many of us that dream of quitting our day job and making a living at what we love – sewing and designing – and it would be super inspiring to feature some women that have made this happen in their own lives!

  250. 250
    Ashley says:

    I’d love to see a feature about “one quilt, many colourways” to demonstrate how different the same quilt pattern could look by altering the colours and placements used.

    Would love to see some modern quilting patterns, art quilting and some home sewing projects (I’ve been contemplating slipcovers lately and have no clue where to begin). Sewing book reviews would be great too!

    this sounds like a great new addition to the quilting world.

    I’d love to hear the inspiration/ creative process/ trial and error stuff that the artists go through to get to their final quilt. And some tips on color and fabric pattern combinations. I’ve read over and over about choosing a large print, medium print and small print to use for more traditional quilts, but that doesn’t always work with the modern fabrics and quilt patterns we all love so much. And now that I’m looking at Sally’s comment above, I totally agree that machine maintenance tips would be fantastic. All I ever do is blow the whole thing off with compressed air and change the needle once in a while. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I really like to see more epublications. I find epatterns especially great, since storing them in my computer allows me more room to store fabric in my sewing studio. And now with this wonderful new magazine being electronic, I won’t have to buy another magazine storage box. Great great idea. And the previews are so inspiring!

    Stephanie says:

    I think this is a great idea! I would def like to see articles about colour, like mixing stuff from different lines of fabrics cuz I like unique scrappy quilts. I also really like seeing traditional patterns updated in modern fabrics.

    Hil says:

    I’d like to see tips for combining fabrics and how to use large patterned fabrics.

  265. 265

    I think it looks fab! I can’t wait to see it. I’m on a “how can I turn this quilt pattern into a cool pillow cover” kick recently.

    Jenny G. says:

    I would like to see lots of quilts patterns at different scales (not all bed-size or all lap quilts) but a nice range of sizes.

    I think it would be cool to see some different quilting ideas – show how different quilting techniques or even thread color changes how a quilt looks.
    Can’t wait for it to launch!

    Amanda says:

    While Ilove all crafts I am still pretty much a beginner when it comes to sewing. I would love to see a project geared towards those needing to learn the basic skills needed for a larger more complicated project later.

    Charlotte M says:

    I’m looking for modern patterns that will inspire me.

  287. 287

    I’m so excited for the debut of Fat Quarterly. I love to see patterns, taking traditional and making it modern and fresh. Also, a new way of thinking up your own patterns, free style methods. And I love reading profiles of current artists and seeing where they create.

    Trina says:

    If I don’t win it looks like I will be buying another magazine. It looks awesome.

    Maeve Binder says:

    Excited about the new magazine! I have a nice stash, but I particularly like to collect fat quarters for smaller projects, like lap quilts, purses, tablerunners, etc. These are the kinds of patterns I look for most of the time.

Blogs sometimes tell the why of decision-making, and that is interesting to me. Thanks for the giveaway. Hope I win a first edition peek.
