Looking for a last-minute gift idea for Mom (or yourself) this weekend? Craftsy has put selected classes on sale up to 50% off. Sale ends Sunday night.
I hear often from many of you that you’d love to learn how to paper piece. I learned from the master, Carol Doak, and highly recommend her as a fantastic teacher. I notice that her class, Mastering Foundation Paper Piecing, is on sale this weekend. You won’t be disappointed.
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!
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.

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).
