The Fat Quarter Shop and a free quilt-along!

If you are an online fabric shopper, you are probably well familiar with one of my sponsors, The Fat Quarter Shop.

In my opinion, the Fat Quarter Shop sets the bar for the online fabric shopping experience. The site is so well organized and easy to navigate and their selection and service is amazing. Also, be sure to check out their Sale section for lots of great deals!

One of their specialties is their Clubs and Block of the Month Quilts and Programs.
The latest program at the Fat Quarter Shop is hosting is a Quilt-along called Deck-ade the Halls.  This Christmas-themed Quilt-along celebrates the 10 years the Fat Quarter Shop has been in business. The patterns consist of 10 free downloads over the next 5 months with plenty of time to complete this quilt before Christmas! To find out more about it, visit the Jolly Jabber blog and follow along on Flickr. There are even video tutorials, as you can see with block #1.


To help you get started, the Fat Quarter Shop is giving away a Layer Cake of Moda's Aspen Frost by Basic Grey. Kits are available for this quilt-along, but you are also encouraged to use your own fabrics and pull from your own stash.

If you'd like a chance to win the Aspen Frost layer cake, leave a comment on this post. Giveaway will be open until Friday, May 31 at midnight MST. GIVEAWAY CLOSED.

WINNER: LynetteMay 28, 2013 at 6:08 AM
Fabric I love fabric! A diet plan that included a daily fabric treat would help me shed pounds!!! Something like for each pound lost add one "fat" quarter to your stash!!!
Thanks for the giveaway!

To keep tabs on the Fat Quarter Shop and their many programs, sales, and upcoming arrivals you can follow them on Facebook, Twitter, or their blog. You can also check out their YouTube channel for lots of great tutorials and video interviews.
