Fat Quarter Shop GIVEAWAY!!

Shhh...don't tell me what happened on Idol, I haven't got to see it yet.  My evening that I was planning on squaring up some double hourglass squares ended up with me desperately taking a crash course on facebook---and I failed.  Oh well, I have a QuiltStory fan page set-up and I'm about to bribe you into liking us :)  But if you have any ideas or suggestions for us regarding f-book, we'd love to hear.  *sigh*

We've got a fabulous new sponsor, Fat Quarter Shop.  As if you haven't heard of them, they're so great!  It's one of my go-to places, especially if I am wanting something specific, because they have everything!!  They have so many designers and fabric lines, it really is a destination place for fabric!!

Fat Quarter Shop button

They also have a fabulous blog, the Jolly Jabber where they have a lot of quilting tips, latest fabric deals, contests and giveaways.

Today they've got a giveaway just for us!!  Check it:

5 yards of Sugar and Spice-winner's choice
*gasp*


We loooove this line, I'm especially smitten with the argyle and the aqua and red colorway?  Come on! In fact, Heather just finished a DARLING quilt with these fabrics.  More on that later...

Want to win??  Here's how:
please leave a separate comment for each, it's so much easier for us! thanks :)

  1. comment on what you would use the fabric for should you win
  2. become a follower, or tell us you already are :)
  3. "like" Fat Quarter Shop on facebook
  4. "like" QuiltStory on facebook
Ready, set, GO!
Edited to add: I always get so excited about giveaways I forget to add when they end!!  This giveaway will run for a week through Wednesday March 30th, we will announce the winner Thursday March 31st!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

Hello! I am follower number 800!
I am already a big fan of FQ shop :).
I would use this lovely fabric to make a donation quilt. As some of you may know, large parts of Australia have been damaged by flooding and cyclones in the last few months. A group of us has formed a quilting group to make and send quilts to children who have lost their homes. There are currently 325 children registered to receive a quilt (and this is in only one area in one State). I have so far made 4 quilts and they are already in the hands of their new owners :). I would love to be able to continue doing this :)

Congrats on your new sponsor. What a wonderful giveaway. What would I make with that gorgeous fabric other than put it on my shelf and drool over it for a while?

Kasey said...

Let's see... I would probably use the pile as a paper weight for a few days while I stared dreamily... then I'd eventually cut into it for a spring/summer quilt to drape over the back of our couch. I have an idea floating in my head that's waiting for the right fabrics.
Thanks for the chance!

I would make lots of little things with this darling fabric, needle books, pincushions, pot holders, fabric baskets and little bags as it's so bang on trend, but I'd mix it up with with some Japanese whimsy too, that way I'd have enough to provide gifts, thus feeling virtuous and maybe have extra for some cute new pillows too for me.
Thanks, for the great giveaway.
