Green Fairy Quilts will sponsor, too!

We love our Pet Show sponsors! Hope you all are taking pictures of your pets on quilts, because the show is coming up soon, in August!!

A long-time sponsor of this blog, and of our show, too, is Green Fairy Quilts!

You may know about Green Fairy for a number of reasons....

Lots of yummy pre-cuts for quilting. What's your pleasure, jelly rolls, layer cakes, charm packs, honey buns? (Grin)

They have all of those, and

lots of fabulous collections to browse among!

Do you like to start with bundles of coordinating fabrics? Judi has put together some great five-yard bundles for us to choose from!

Want some inspiration from a master long arm quilter? Check out Judi's blog for lovely examples of her work!

I hope that you will head over to their site and spend a while, shopping their awesome selections.
While you are there, sign up for their newsletter -- you will receive weekly notes detailing some super sales that they offer!

Green Fairy quilts is known for their annual charity, too, when they deliver supplies and purchase IDs for the orphaned children in Romania, where Clint served some years ago. Without IDs, the government doesn't know they exist, and they can't get jobs when they are older, either. 

Clint and Judi are providing a prize for this year's show, too!

A gorgeous jelly-roll of "Enchanted" by Gingiber, for Moda. Beautiful!

Thanks ever so much, Green Fairy Quilts! You are going to make one lucky winner very happy in August!

Personally, I CAN'T WAIT for our show!!
