Fons & Porter Holiday Trivia Contest – Week 6



Thank you to all who are entering our Holiday Trivia Contest. We hope you are having as much fun as we are!

Week 5 Answer: Marianne’s favorite Christmas gift was seeing her mom’s happiness as she hugged the Corn and Beans scrap quilt Marianne gave to her as a gift.

Congratulations to Dorothy Cole, who is the lucky winner of the 6″x12″ Omnigrid Ruler and the Fons & Porter Crystal Glass Head Pins.

Week 6 Trivia Question:

What are the two special Christmas projects that Liz and Marianne make using their spools of thread and quilting notions? (Hint, you can find your answer in a 1998 issue of Sew Many Quilts, hope that helps!)

This week you are playing for a 12″x12″ Omnigrid ruler and a Fons & Porter Magnetic Heart.


Each Thursday between November 3rd and December 29th, we will ask you a trivia question. If you answer correctly, you will be entered into a random drawing for a quilting notion. Enter your answer in the comment section below. We will accept all new answers until Wednesday at midnight the night before the new question is asked.

Good Luck and Happy Holidays!

    I love to buy fat quarters I haven’t sewn in 20 years, used to sew costumes and clothes for my kids, now am fighting an autoimmune disease but when I go through all my collection of fabric it lets me dream of a happy creative place that gets me through the day! I got a new machine and am excited about the day I actually can muster enough to put something together and hang it on the wall or even better something to wear. What a blessing quilting websites are for people to dream!

    Tree ornaments … and decorations.

    This is my #1 item on my wish list for Christmas but I cannot locate anything even close to being the answer to this question. It is extremely hard to find something like this when we are given no clue at all where to look. It could be in any number of the magazines or any of the more recent issues of them all or on the blog, or on a number of websites that are tied to Fons and Porter I’m guessing. I’ve searched now for two days and cannot find a thing and I don’t want to cheat and just copy the answer posted by the only other person who has answered. I guess this will remain on my list.

      Hi Vicki T
      I think I have stumped quite a few people. I usually don’t give hints, but it is the Christmas season. You can find your answer in a 1998 issue. Hope that helps!

      • VickiT says:

        Thank you for the hint. I guess it’s assumed that we all have access to past issues in this case. I only started sewing again in 2003 and quilting I just started a little more than a year ago so I’ve been knocked out of this one already. Thanks for the hint in any case.
