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....
