  2. Liz Engman says:

    Another charming block. I love the way the red door picks up the color in the smaller prints.

  3. Nancy says:

    I always shop Online and I shop at the Fat Quarter Shop 98% of the time, weekly.

    Thanks for this awesome Give Away!!

  4. Wanda says:

    I shop online when my local shop does not have what I need.

  5. Mary D says:

    Oh yes I shop online for quilting supplies. Online shopping opens up a world of access to all sorts of things that may not be in your LQS.

  6. Brenda Hulsey says:

    I buy quilting things online all the time. Saves me from having to get out and drive over 20 miles! I like being able to buy what I want without driving all over and not be able to find it in town. Usually on sale too!

  7. Dorothy says:

    I do shop online, probably more than in the local store. And, I LOVE to shop at Fatquartershop!

  8. OFELIA KELLER says:

    Oh my, love all the house created by these great designers! and I could not wait and bought the digital online edition!! Thank you!!

  9. I do shop on line and have bought from the Fat quarter shop, Hancocks of Paducah and Connecting Threads. All are nice shops with excellent service.

  10. Nesta says:

    I love shopping online for fabrics because I can’t find the latest collections where I live here in Italy!

  11. nancy mcmahan says:

    I love to shop on line for just about anything to do with quilting from fabrics to threads.

  12. Deb J says:

    I definitely shop online…we only have a few good quilt shops and I seldom have the time to get there (my bad). And when I’m on the look-out for fabric, well, I typically already know what I’m after and a better use of my time is to shop online and save minutes for actually quilting!

  13. Karen in Breezy Point says:

    Yes, I shop on-line way too much! Adorable block–love it!

  14. Ann in PA says:

    Yes, I do shop online for many of my quilting supplies. Although I live within driving distance to many quilt shops, it’s always nice to shop in my PJs! : )

  15. Sheryl Agee says:

    I shop online and love to do shop hops.

  16. Janet Barrett says:

    Yes, I shop online. I am a quilting ‘newbie’ so I like to buy fat quarter bundles when I see a designer’s fabric line that speaks to me. It’s a great way to build a fabric stash – and fabrics are coordinated for me!

  17. Linda Cejnar says:

    Yes, I do buy quilting supplies online. In fact, most of my stash was bought online. It is easy to find what you’re looking for and easy to find sales. I would love to win Kimberly’s house block. It’s so cute! Thank you.

  18. Claudia says:

    Yes, I shop on line for quilting fabrics and supplies. Not the same as petting the fabric in person, but living in a rural area, our LQS are small and limited–they can’t cater to everyone. The Fat Quarter Shop is where I get my Hoffman Challenge fabrics.

  19. allison pogany says:

    I shop online when there is something specific I am looking for that my local shop doesn’t have. Otherwise, I really like to see and feel the fabric in person!

  20. I do shop online for quilting supplies! I love shopping the!
