Welcome Fat Quarter Shop & Giveaway!

I hope that you are all having a lovely weekend! I am delighted to introduce my newest sponsor on FairyFace Designs, Fat Quarter Shop.


I'm sure I don't need to tell most of you what a great fabric shop it is! It has a HUGE selection of fabric - yardage, precut, kits etc, as well as thread, patterns, sewing notions and lots more, including quilt clubs and Block of the Month programs. It has a brilliant sale section too, I always keep an eye on it because sometimes the deals are just amazing - including their specials which you can always find through following them on Twitter or their Facebook page. And in addition to all that, they have a fantastic reputation for service and delivery.

Fat Quarter Shop was founded by Kimberly Jolly back in 2003, and in 10 years it has grown from a small business that she worked on in the evenings and weekends in addition to her day job, to now being a large full time operation employing a number of staff. In addition to selling all that gorgeous fabric, Fat Quarter Shop is also really immersed in the online sewing community with a great blog, the Jolly Jabber. I love reading the interviews with fabric and quilt designers which are regularly on the blog.



At the moment,  the Jolly Jabber is hosting a great free sew along to celebrate 10 years of Fat Quarter Shop - The Deck-ade the Halls Quilt Along. Every 2 weeks, a free PDF pattern is uploaded for each section, with an accompanying video tutorial and you will have a completed quilt top by mid-September, giving lots of time to get it quilted and finished in time for the holidays. You'll find all the video tutorials here and if you want to use the gorgeous Aspen Frost fabric that the FQS quilt is made of you'll find it here, including kits for the pattern.

Fat Quarter Shop is offering a great giveaway today, a $25 gift voucher for one lucky winner for the shop! What will you use it for? Maybe some Briar Rose, Nordika or Just My Type? Or something else? Leave a comment and let me know for one entry. For a second entry, follow me over on Facebook or Instagram and leave a comment letting me know you do. This giveaway is open until next Friday morning, 2nd August and I will pick a winner then. If I cannot contact the winner, I will redraw. Thanks so much to Fat Quarter Shop!
