Back Porch is about relaxing with friends on a lazy summer afternoon. Porch swings, iced tea, laughter and maybe a ceiling fan. This summer's quilt-along was inspired by this fabric collection from Me and My Sister Designs - shipping to stores in August. Join us for a Summer in the Country from June 29 to September 7.

I would probably take my giant seam ripper (protection from wild things) and some Aurifil thread because that is some useful thread. I could use it to trap food and to make a clothesline and even to floss my teeth. Ha ha.
I am not quite as resourceful as Gene (comment above) so the first thing I would do is stick close to him. Then I would design lots of blocks using my 12 1/2" graph paper. I would use my Fons & Porter pencil because it doesn't rub off the paper onto my hand. And since Gene is so clever he will have me back home to electricity and my sewing machine in no time, where I can sew with my Juki and seam ripper!
I would have to have my Fiskars rotary cutter and mat, so I could whip out quilt pieces and Dorothy Lamour-style sarongs with equal, wild abandon. Tee hee!
I would have to say my must have gadget it my 1/4 inch guide that you attach to my sewing machine. Really helps with those 1/4 inch seems.
I would want my rotary cutter and mat, and my hand crank sewing machine! Of course my cat to keep me company while firstname.lastname@example.org
I would want my rotary cutter and mat, my seam ripper and one of those needle threaders would be nice. I'm 40-something and can relate to Joanna! I'm always calling my children to help me thread my needles---I could really use one of those threaders!

Pretty common thinking here. I would need my rotary cutter and rotating mat, a needle threader, and of course my cat who thinks I can't sew without her lying on the fabric.rmk815 at gmail dot com
Oh heavens....I would have to have my sewline pencil for sure!! Just to write all those messages in a bottle...and my seam ripper to scare the animals off; so I could cut twigs with my rotary cutter to build a fire...do you thing the blades could be used to light a fire???hmmmmmmmmmmmm
I would need my rotary cutter, 24" ruler and clover thin pins and...maybe a few more things I'm learning from those you are interviewing.
Love my aurifil thread and goldfish crackers and Chapstick.
I do not think I could live without my iron......and rotary cutter and mat!
I love my Fiskars razor point scissors. Now I am thinking it could help me shave off some wood shavings to start a fire but I might just die any ways because I don't know that I would sacrifice my scissors. I love them!!
I'd need my rotary cutter (got to cut my fruit somehow), lots of thread (to catch some fish), and some Clover binding clips to bind my quilts (and to hang up my clothes to dry).
I would need pins - hundreds of them!
I can't get through a quilting project without my blue painter's tape (to mark straight lines for quilting, to tape down edges for basting, etc., etc. SO many uses!) I could definitely use that needle threader for my handwork, or the marking pencil for free motion quilting.
Seam Ripper for sure...protection from anything and a good tool...just skip the Cabana boy and give me my own cabana to sew in...Irish fair skin types need shade!!!
As the island isn't civilised, I'd take my Grandmothers Flower Garden hexies, thread, a needle and a pair of scissors. Thanks for the chance!
I don't know how these wonderful ladies narrow it down to just 3! I would certainly need my Aurifil thread, and my rotary cutter and mat, and my seam ripper, and my disappearing fabric pen, and my.....:)
I would definitely want my 6" Quilter-Ninja Throwing Star Square (good for fending off natives when not squaring up half-square triangles!) and my paper scissors because you never know when you might need to create a shelter and no one wants to ruin their good fabric scissors! I'd miss my cats, but they'd be there at home, guarding my stash until I return.
I would have to have my snips. Oh and some really cute, but long pins!
Well, if I was stranded I would definitely have some hand applique. I would have something I consider a notion and that is toothpicks. Sometimes they are the best thing to get that fabric to turn under. If you haven't tried using one for you applique I highly recommend them.
Of course my sewing machine, rotary cutter, mat, rulers and pencil and the iron and a very good light.
I think my favorite notion is my sewline pencil--not the fancy one you're giving away, but I've rigged it to click either white or grey and I use it a lot. The number two spot would be a ruler & rotary cutter. Even though it's not a favorite, my seam ripper is certainly a necessity; I find myself using it way too much :) Thanks for such a fun series & giveaway!
I would definetely bring my seam ripper, my gingher scissors, and a good iron with lots of steaming abilities!
I love my rotary cutter (with a fresh blade) and my seam ripper. I especially LOVE Fig Tree patterns and fabrics! Would love to win!
I would have to have a needle and thread!I would like to have a cutting mat, ruler and rotary cutter. Thanks for the great giveaway!
Love the Aurifil thread, good pair of "nips", and a comfy chair.
I could not go without a rotary cutter and a seam ripper oh and pepsi to keep me going...
If the island supplies the sewing machine, I'll supply the snips, 24' by 6' ruler and Niagara fabric sizing. And cabin boy, I like tea and lots of it.
