First up is the only shop that I have ordered online stuff from:


The Fat Quarter Shop was founded in 2003 by Kimberly Jolly. An avid quilter, Kimberly began her shop as a side business while still working a corporate position, cutting, packing and shipping right out of her house during evenings and weekends. From the very beginning, she was committed to delivering top-notch service for every single order and customer. As the Fat Quarter Shop's reputation grew, Kimberly decided to make it a full-time operation. Her husband Kevin joined her not long after, and with his help, lots of hard work, and a tireless commitment, the store began to grow. Over the past few years a few more people have joined the staff!

As a team, they continue to branch out with the best fabrics, exclusive kits, quilt clubs, BOMs, and more. And they have always been driven by the passion that Kimberly founded the store upon, which is always giving you the best products and service!

The first thing that strikes us when we visit the store is a huge variety that they have put together for us. All the prints are available in Fat Quarter Cuts. The bundles that they have put together are just fabulous. Now dont you guys dare to try shopping there with a fixed budget. With the kind of variety that is available and the ease of navigation on the site, you are bound to exceed your budget ( I exceeded mine by 1.5 times!)

They have a whole range of Precuts : Fat Quarters, Charm Packs, Jelly Rolls, Layer Cakes, Honey Buns and Turnovers... Apart from this they do have a whole bunch of Yardage...

You can decide to view the fabric by cut, designer, theme, collection or manufacturers. There is seldom something that you can get stuck with and the team is always ready to answer your queries...

The staff is just wonderful. They are ready to reply to any of your queries. And you wont even have to wait long for their replies. I was yalking to Kimberly twice and it was something like 11 pm at her place!!! Yet she was so wonderful to me.

Here's a link to the About Us page of The Fat Quarter Shop. And they have a blog too... Right now they are at the International Quilt Market at Houston... Hop over to have a peep at what they are upto... Ssshhh... they have a wonderful giveaway going on... The lesser people know, more are the chances of me winning ;) so please dont enter it...

All in all, I had fun with the Fat Quarter Shop... If you want to send a gift to a friend who happens to be a quilter, your first stop shall be The Fat Quarter Shop...
