Fat quarter shop give away time

This month we thank the Fat quarter shop for being our lovely July sponsors.  The delightful Stephanie from the Fat quarter shop let me do some shopping to choose a prize and as most of our members are bloggers what better than to offer a Bloggers choice set of Fat Quarters for the give away.


I picked Jeni Bakers selection as I love the modern fresh fabrics and beachy colours - I hope you like what I have picked for you to win.
Jeni has a fabulous blog called In Color Order visit it HERE


Jeni talks a lot about colour and what goes with what - I spent quite a bit of time today on her blog absorbing all of her fresh ideas. She also has some brilliant tutorials.

To enter, simply become a follower and pop a comment on this post telling me what you would make from this selection of fabrics if you were the lucky winner.  The give away will close on July 15th 2012.

Thank you to Kimberley and Stephanie at the Fat Quarter shop for sponsoring Quilting Block Swaps Australia.  Why not pay them a visit now and see what other goodes they have in store.  (When I went shopping for the give away prize I signed up for their Mystery BOM)
