Muse - Day Jellyroll Giveaway sponsored by FQS!! Brand new arrival!

Both the Destash and the Jelly Roll Giveaways are now closed. Thanks so much to all of you for your wonderful response!

By the way, if you are looking for our challenge project, Destash for Malawi, simply click on the Destash logo on the right-hand side of the blog! 
Update: Check out this link for a picture of how Anita is packing some of the fabric to go to Malawi. This suitcase is on its way!! More pictures are posted at this flickr group!

Have you ever been so happy with something that you just couldn't stop telling people about it? Well, that is how I am about the Fat Quarter Shop --- one of our awesome sponsors!!


The Fat Quarter Shop is a one-stop shop for your quilting needs . . . with everything from kits to patterns to notions, and of course, a splendiferous selection of fabrics!!

The folks there are so friendly and helpful . . . I love a store that I can call and talk to a human being --- one that understands my "quilt-speak" and my indecision, too, and can help me make informed decisions on my purchases. The free patterns that they offer are just the icing on the cake!


They ship your order super fast, and we all know how important that is! There you are, sitting at the window, fingers drumming on the window sill, notebook with your project sketch at your side --- and here comes the lovely box from the Fat Quarter Shop! Voila! You can piece or applique to your heart's content.

Today we are starting a giveaway of one of their brand new arrivals; it is sizzling hot, and super special! The line of fabric is called Northcote Range, by Cabbages and Roses. I'm going to make it easy on you --- you can click on the link . . . or just feast your eyes on this:



Scrumptious! I love the florals, but those rich solids are wonderful, too!
Waddya think? Would you like to have a jelly roll of this great line of fabric, winging its way directly to you from the fabulous Fat Quarter Shop? You would? Tee hee, I thought so!  This truly fits in with our usual Tuesday "Muse-Day" celebration, since you will surely be inspired by this beautiful fabric!

Here are the ways that you can enter to win:

  • We would really like to reward one of our faithful followers on this giveaway, so comment and let us know that you are one, or that you just signed up!
  • We'd love to know which one of the Fat Quarter Shop's free patterns you would like to try sometime . . . so go and take a look, and comment to let us know which one!
  • If you blog about our giveaway, or tweet, or facebook it, you can leave a comment with a link to where you did each one, for a total of three more chances to win!

How about that! Five chances available for a yummy jelly roll! We'll close the giveaway at midnight (Eastern) on Friday, October 14, and announce our lucky winner on Saturday.  Good luck everyone!

Love,
