  • Please use the larger image. (Click through to the product page to pin it.)
  • Go directly to If you click the link in Facebook it opens in a frame, which prevents the pinmarklet from working correctly.
  • Yes, you can pin fabrics in the sale section, UNLESS they say “out of stock.” (We probably won’t be getting more of the fabric if it is in the sale section.) It is OK to pin fabrics that are out of stock if they are in NEW or don’t have a sale price listed… Chances are good we’re reordering it.
  • Please don’t put other images in your Fat Quarter Idol board. If you make it to the top 10, we need to take a screen shot that includes only your 12 picks.

1. Create a board on Pinterest that includes Sew,Mama,Sew! #FatQuarterIdol and the theme of the week. For example: “Sew,Mama,Sew! #FatQuarterIdol Daddy-O” (The hashtag will help us find your board.)

2. Pin exactly 12 fabrics onto your board. All fabrics must come from the Sew,Mama,Sew! website. They can be currently available or in the Coming Soon section. Fabric can be solid or a print. Put “Sew,Mama,Sew!” and the fabric name in the description. For example: “Falling Flowers Blue ~ SpringSong @ Sew,Mama,Sew!” (When compiling your pack, don’t forget you can browse our fabric by designer, collection, print, and color.)

3. Submit the URL of your board to the blog post describing the theme of the week here on the blog. For this week’s theme submit your URL in the comments below on today’s post. Themes will be announced every Monday. You need to have your URL in the comments by Friday of the same week.
