$500 up for grabs!

One of the most fun things here at Lilypadquilting is the opportunities that we have to design with and spread the word about new fabric lines.

I would like to show you one of those today --- currently there is a project ongoing here at the Lilypad, but for now it is under wraps!
I'll show it to you soon, I promise, and we'll have a giveaway then, too!

Jacquelynne Steves is one of the Henry Glass designers, and I just love her fabrics. We've shown you projects with her "O Holy Night" line, and also her "Fruitful Hands" fabrics . . . now here comes the adorable "Happy Town" line that is in the stores now!!

Look at this cute panel --- and there's a story behind it!

(I snagged this photo from another of our fabulous sponsors' site: the Fat Quarter Shop, where you can find this fabric line!)

Jacquelynne envisioned this panel as a play mat that could easily be finished for floor play --- but here is the genius: it could make a wonderful bed play spot as well! She and Henry Glass have teamed up to help the Quilts for Kids charity effort, and all of her royalties will go to that great cause; the Henry Glass folks will be making a donation as well!

Here are some close ups of the panel . . .

Aren't they adorable?  I can just imagine the smile on a youngster's face, as they spread this out on the bed and play!

The coordinating fabrics are bright, cute and fun:

And check out the contest that is ongoing --- you will love this! Grab some of these uber-cute fabrics and design a quilt --- you might just be the $500 winner, and have the honor of your quilt being displayed at Market, too! 
At the linkie up there, you'll find the entry form and the rules, so what are you waiting for? (Grin)

All of the quilts that are entered into the contest will go to the hospitalized children who are served by the Quilts for Kids cause, so it's a win-win situation for all of us!

Now, let's get going to Happy Town!
