Vote Now and Give-Away: House and Building Quilts

Quilters' Show & Tell

Grab yourself a pencil and some paper as it’s voting time for this week’s Quilters’ Show & Tell event. The theme is House and Building Quilts.

This week’s guest judge is Karen from Faeries and Fibres. She’ll have 100 bonus points to assign to up to four quilts.

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 two Gracie Girl 2.5” Rolie Polies. The top quilter with the most votes (community votes plus guest judge points) will win one and the other winner will be selected from those that leave a comment below.


To enter the give-away, simply visit the What’s New – Fat Quarter Bundles product page, and let me know which bundle catches your fancy in the comments below. Winner will be selected randomly next Tuesday.

Please note: Winners will not be notified until late next week.
