I recently gave Annies Kit Club a shot. Let me break it down for you in this Annies’s Kit /clubs Fat Quarter Club Review post and I’ll tell you what I think!
Quilting Rebel is reader supported. Often times links you see will earn me a small commission if you purchase through these links, but never cost you a penny. Your support is greatly appreciated!
I’ve been intrigued with Annie’s for a while because it seems like a really awesome idea. Especially kits where maybe you want to be introduced to something new that you haven’t tried before. What a great way to get a small sampling to see what you think!

What Came in the Kit
I signed up for the Fat Quarter Club. You are given the option to choose Designer, Solids, or Batiks to arrive in your kit. My kit arrived less than a week after I ordered it in a nice padded envelope full of fabric! I chose the Designer option for mine.
I received 6 fat quarters and a card that stated I had a free project pattern online. I logged in and not only did I have 1 pattern but 3 free patterns! Two are table toppers, one of which could also be a wall hanging, and a third cosmetic clutch pattern. Now it would also require a zipper, but I was pretty happy with what I saw!
There was also a 4th “free gift” which was a free quilt pattern (could not be made with the kits 6 fat quarters fyi) and some free sewing how to information.
So what type of fabric did I get? Two of my fat quarters had selvedges marked from Windham fabrics and the others had no markings on the selvedges however all of them feel identical in quality, weight, and feel. I was happy with the fabric I received!
Let’s talk price. Ok the first month is great right? Because we are getting one heck of a deal. But how about after that? The Fat Quarter Club is *$23.99 + $5.95 shipping each time it is shipped. They state each kit will come with 6 – 8 Fat Quarters. I got 6 so that means each FQ would be $4.99 each.
Of course that is more pricey than if you were picking them up yourself. But these fabrics are coordinated for you, shipped to you, and you get free patterns with every shipment. I think that is a heck of a deal if you ask me! But more importantly – its fun and exciting to see what is going to arrive each month!
*All the clubs/kits vary in price.
I’ve received 3 more shipments since the first and I wanted to show you exactly what I received. I am happy with all of them except 1. When you sign up you have the option to choose Designer, Batiks, or Solids. I chose Designer. For me, I feel like this means that I should not receive any Batiks and they are not my favorite at all. I never buy them. So I was disappointed when in December when I received all Batiks in my shipment. I reached out to them today to inquire as to the why. I will update you when I hear back. Now Batiks could be Designer – I get that – but considering they have it as a completely separate choice, I would not expect to receive any. Update: Batiks are also considered Designer – 2022.
Here are the other months I have received – and don’t forget you get a free pattern each time to use your fabrics in!
Besides the Batiks, I am very happy with my shipments and overall I’m still happy that I signed up!
