Voting Time! Remembering Veterans Quilts & Give-Away

Quilters' Show & Tell

It’s voting time for this week’s Quilters’ Show & Tell event. The theme is Remembering Veterans.

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 $25 gift certificates. One will be awarded to the top quilter with the most points (community votes plus guest judge points) and the other randomly given away to someone leaving a comment below.


To enter the give-away: Visit the Fat Quarter Bundles page and leave a comment below answering “Which fat quarter bundle would you like to own?” You have until Monday, November 18, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. to enter.
