Vote Now and Give-Away: Quilts for Mom

Quilters' Show & Tell

It’s time to vote and enter the give-away for this week’s Quilters’ Show & Tell event. This week’s theme is Quilts for Mom.

For this week, there are no guest judges, we’ll go with community votes only. However, if I suspect foul play, I will recruit a couple of judges to help too.

Give-Away from the Fat Quarter Shop

Fat Quarter Shop

The Fat Quarter Shop was founded in 2003 by Kimberly Jolly. An avid quilter, Kimberly began her shop as a side business while still working a corporate position, cutting, packing and shipping right out of her house during evenings and weekends. From the very beginning, she was committed to delivering top-notch service for every single order and customer. As the Fat Quarter Shop’s reputation grew, Kimberly decided to make it a full-time operation. Her husband Kevin joined her not long after, and with his help, lots of hard work, and a tireless commitment, the store began to grow. Over the past few years a few more people have joined the staff!

As a team, we continue to branch out with the best fabrics, exclusive kits, quilt clubs, BOMs, and more. And we will always be driven by the passion that Kimberly founded the store upon, which is always giving you the best products and service!

Be sure to check out our extensive sale section, our up-to-date What’s New page and lust over future collections on our Coming Soon page!


The Fat Quarter Shop will be donating a set of two charm packs, Bake Sale by Lori Holt and Madhuri to each winner.



The quilter with the most votes will win one set and the other will be randomly awarded to someone leaving a comment below.

To enter the give-away, leave a comment below answering: Do you make smoothies (fruit or vegetable)? Do you have a favourite recipe to share? (Ok, so this week’s question is not quilting-related at all, but I need smoothie recipes to try, low fat with an energy boost!)

You have until Monday, May 13, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. (EDT) to enter the give-away.

BONUS! Treat Mom (or Yourself) this Weekend to a Gift Certificate


Use coupon code ilovemom and get a $25 gift certificate for $20, a $50 gift certificate for $40, a $100 gift certificate for $80, etc. Mom gets the full dollar amount on her gift certificate, you get the savings!

Next Week’s Show & Tell

The Quilters’ Show & Tell will be taking a break next week, but we’ll be back the following week. However, you can still enter quilts for the next theme which is Flower Gardens. Any quilting style is acceptable and unfinished quilt tops are welcome as well. I want to see lots of flowers either in the design or in the fabrics chosen. Also, please don’t submit a quilt you’ve already entered in the past… let’s see something different!

Read the Guidelines and submit your photo before Friday, May 24th, 2013 at 8 a.m. (EDT). Voting will start the same day for this event not next Friday (17th).


To sponsor a weekly Quilters’ Show and Tell event, please send me an email and I’ll send you the information package. Check available dates here.

    I have never made a smoothie but do make milkshakes and malts.

  2. I do make smoothies – fruit. I put a banana, half an apple, and a handful of berries in a blender or Magic Bullet with ice, add about 1/4 cup of raw oatmeal and, if I have it, a handful of flaxseed, cover with orange juice, and blend. If I have fresh fruit, great, but I also put fruit that is getting soft but is not yet bad into the freezer to use for smoothies. If I use frozen fruit, it reduces the amount of ice I use. No real measurements, though – I make my smoothies the way I make my quilts – no patterns.

  3. Vicki C says:

    I have made smoothies, using strawberries, bananana, and juice. But I prefer to buy them then I can get the extra kick added when I need it.

  4. Tammy Pettus says:

    I’ve never made a smoothie. But we do like to make peanut butter milkshakes!

  6. Debbie Rogowski says:

    sorry I dont’ make smoothies but I’d love to try some. I’ve heard that using agave instead of sugar is good for diabetics . I dont’ understand the whole concept of sugars but I think those that do will be able to explain why :) Thanks for the chance to participate in the judging, I always enjoy this.

  7. Rhonda says:

    Smoothies are tasty. I have made them using strawberries, drained pineapples, low fat yogurt and a bit of low fat sour cream. Yummy!!
    For a bit of crunch fold in a teaspoon of chopped walnuts and enjoy!

  8. Cecilia says:

    I have never made a smoothie.

  9. Debbie Rhodes says:

    I have always wanted to make a smoothy. Someday I will try

  10. Wow, now that’s a close race for first! Hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day! Thanks for the chance to win that fabulous fabric! I have never made any smoothies….

  11. Mystica says:

    Thanks for sharing that gorgeous fabric. Never made a smoothie myself.
