Fat Quarter Shop Giveaway and Monday Link Up

Plum and June

This week's giveaway is from the wonderful Fat Quarter Shop.  I think the Fat Quarter Shop was one of the first online shops I found when I started quilting and I've always really liked their vast selection and easy to navigate website!  For today's giveaway, the Fat Quarter Shop is offering one lucky winner a $25 gift certificate to their shop.  

You have 3 chances to win.

1. Leave a comment on this post (any comment but if you would like a topic, how about your favorite kona color(s))

2.  My followers - old and new - get a second entry (leave a comment indicating that you are a follower.)

3.  For a third entry, visit the Fat Quarter Shop and leave a comment about which fat quarter bundle is one of your favorites.

The giveaway will remain open until November 3, 2012 at 8pm EDT and one winner will be chosen at random and announced thereafter.  And please, unless you are sure that you are NOT a no-reply commenter, include an email address.

This giveaway is now closed - the winner is #179: dianeOctober 28, 2012 8:21 PM
I've been eyeing the Chicopee bundles by Denyse Schmidt at the Fat Quarter Shop!
The winner of last week's giveaway from Contemporary Cloth is #205 JoyceLM.  Congrats Joyce - I've sent you an email.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'm still quite new to quilting (and hand sew everything, so each project takes a long time!) so I haven't actually used any Kona solids yet. But I'm planning to use Birds and Bees to make Tula's spacedust quilt next, and this morning I hit on the idea of using a dark blue solid for the background, and I think I'll have to give Kona a try. Once my fat quarters arrive, I'll start auditioning colours.

  80. This makes me laugh because I am so allergic to solids. In order to overcome this allergy I joined a kona solids swap (that I still haven't received my charms...) and I was assigned the ugliest color of brown you have ever seen (and I like brown)! So laughing all the while cutting up the brown, I silently coveted the buttercup yellow someone else got. Thanks for the chance to win!
