We Have a New Sponsor!! (And a Giveaway!)

Note: The Wantobe A Quilter Campaign starts today...don't forget to stop in at Stash!!

Yippee!! Take a look at the left-hand sidebar on this blog! See anything new?

Well, of course you do! We have a brand new sponsor on Lilypadquilting - it is the fabulous Fat Quarter Shop!

For some of you fabric-aholics, the Fat Quarter Shop needs no introduction..... ahem. That does include me. Sew, for the rest of you, listen up - you don't want to miss this!

The folks at the Fat Quarter Shop have an incredible online store. One of the first things that I noticed about them was the ease of shopping there: you can search by collection, by designer, or even by theme. They have all the fabric lines that you love; they have pre-cuts and yardage; they carry block of the month quilts, and they have patterns galore.

Hungry for some jelly rolls? No, not this kind....


This kind!!
This is the kind that won't add any inches to your waist - the kind that is fun to make into a quilt or tote, or tablerunner, or mug-rug, or well, you get the picture, don't you?!

Maybe your taste runs more to layer cakes? Don't worry, I won't post another cake picture....but how does this look?
Ya know, I shoulda warned you so you could have a handkerchief ready....I don't know about you, but these gorgeous fabrics make me drool and dream about what I could create!

The Fat Quarter Shop offers same day shipping, and some wonderful kits and products that are exclusive to their store. They have all the newest collections, and always have some awesome sales going on!

You should definitely check out their blog, too. The Jolly Jabber has interesting interviews with designers, and fun giveaways, too.


Awww, I just can't hold out any longer.... I gotta tell you what they are offering for our giveaway. 
Are you ready? 
Really ready? 
Maybe you'd better sit down. 
Lean over close to the screen. 
OK, here we go....
One of Lilypadquilting's followers is going to receive a fat quarter bundle of Peacock Lane, by Violet Craft, for Michael Miller Fabrics. That's TWELVE beautiful fat quarters!!

Be. Still. My. Heart. Ohhh, just look at this:

This is Peacock Lane in the Rainbow Sorbet colorway. Isn't it luscious?

Now feast your peepers on this:

Here it is in the Cherry Chip colorway....yummy!


One of you awesome peeps will get to make the difficult choice - which will YOU choose? In case this would help you make up your mind, click here to see the whole line of glorious fabrics!

Now, whatcha got to do to be eligible to win? I'm gonna give you several options....you don't have to do them all. If it makes you feel like a little fluffy poodle jumping through hoops, then just pick one and do that! LOL  If you really want to get those good giveaway vibes going, you could do them all! Here are the options:

1. Be a follower here at Lilypadquilting, and tell me so.
2. Go to the Fat Quarter Shop's blog, and follow there, and come back to tell me so.
3. Go to the Fat Quarter Shop store and sign up for their email newsletter, and come tell me you did, or you already receive it.
4. Go to Fat Quarter Shop's Facebook page and post on their wall; tell 'em thanks for the giveaway...then come tell me you did.
5. Blog about our giveaway on your own blog, and tell me that you did.
6. Lastly, tell me which of the colorways of Peacock Lane you would like to win.

Now, that's not too hard, is it? If you are really "hopped" up about the beautiful fabric (we do a lot of "froggie" jokes around here!), you can earn another chance by visiting the OleFrogEyes page on Facebook, and either "like" us or post a comment. Be sure to come back here and let me know, OK? (Now I will know how many of you keep reading till you get to the end! LOL)
Mr. Random Number Generator will pick one of you wonderful peeps to win, on August 8, and we will announce our winner on August 9. 
Let the commenting begin! Good luck everyone!
Love,





PS: Please don't take it personally if I don't answer your comment.....we are getting a good many, and I can't get to all of them - but I appreciate each and every one!

I am so happy to hear from you! I try to respond to all comments, but sometimes that just isn't possible! If you don't receive a reply, it may be because your profile is set on "no-reply". Edit your profile, and click "show my email address" and we'll be able to talk!
Please don't leave links to un-related blogs or products. That's not good etiquette and they will be deleted! :)
