Thanks to everyone who entered our giveaway of Patty Young’s fantastic new book, Sewing MODKID Style: Modern Threads for the Cool Girl. Congratulations to our winner, Felicity of Felicity Quilts (hey, great initials! FQ!), who said:
I got a serger for my 10th wedding anniversary so I’ve done a little sewing with knits, but nothing with a pattern. Would LOVE a copy of this book!
Felicity, please contact us at email@example.com with your mailing address to claim your prize. Thanks!
Winner #1: Gwen Windham, who said “I just bought a yard of Pernilla’s Journey Unicorn fabric for a bag for my daughter– so that would be my first project if I won this giveaway!! The bow tie really adds to this bag— cute! Thank you for the chance to win!” (Ed. note: Gwen, we’d LOVE to see your fun unicorn bag once you’ve made it!)
Winner #2: Jeifner, who said “I would love to make a bag! I also am scared of them. I even went so far as to cut one out once. It has been ignored like a naughty child for months and months. Taking a class would be great. I’d like to use home dec fabric, or some Tula Pink Prince Charming, which I love.”
Congratulations, Gwen & Jeifner! Please contact Trish directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prize.

Thank you all for entering our Sew Mama Sew giveaway. We all had a lot of fun reading through what you would like to find in your stocking this year! I hope Father Christmas was reading too!

who is Valerie from http://adayinmay.blogspot.com/!! Congratulations Valerie!
Valerie please can you email us at email@example.com with your address so we can pop the CD in the post.
Thanks for all of the wonderful comments on our Terrain post! Reading all of your Christmas wishes was enough to put us in the holiday spirit. We’re pleased to announce that the winner of the 5 Terrain mini charm packs, courtesy of Kate Spain herself, is Jess of Quilty Habit:
Terrain is one of my favorite lines ever. I’m asking for a fat eighth bundle (I’ve already made a skirt from a Terrain layer cake) – hoping to get some Good Fortune after Christmas
Jess has a great blog, so we suggest you click over and say “hello”! Jess, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be sure your charm packs are sent ASAP. Congrats!
Thanks to everyone who entered our Zen Chic giveaway. We’re glad that we were able to introduce so many of you to Brigitte and her work. We’ve randomly selected two winners who will each receive a Zen Chic fabric pack:
Our first winner is Tiffany, who blogs at This Crafty Fox and wrote:
My husband is German (100% born and raised) and I have a MA in German Literature so its neat to hear about someone from one of my favorite countries and their introduction to quilting.
Even if Brigitte wasn’t German, I’d still love her & her work! The colors, the style, the patterns, everything is fantastic! I’ve only been sewing for a year and I love hearing the thought processes of more seasoned quilters… seeing how they create and develop their own individual style.
My favorite pattern shown on this post is the orange tiles… that caught my eye the second I opened the blog post – its lovely and so interesting without being super complicated. Something I’d like to take a stab at one day myself …. less of the fun “moda bakeshop” type of quilts and more of the modern – individualized – minimalistic type of quilting.
Our second winner is Amy Dame from glitter, vinyl and thread, who wrote:
i wasn’t familiar with zen chic, but now i think i’m in love! orange has never been high on my favourites list, but i’m looking at it in a whole new light now. i love the cross quilt and the orange brick quilt, but the circles are definitely my favourite. everything is so gorgeous!
Congrats to you both! Tiffany and Amy, please email us at email@example.com with your mailing information and we’ll send out your fabric packets ASAP.
Thanks to everyone who entered our Going Coastal fabric giveaway! It was great reading about your favorite beaches, and it seems like everyone’s just as excited about the Going Coastal collection as we are.
Congratulations to the winner of the Going Coastal fabric winner: #36, Lisa Marie, who said:
I’ve been to a handful of great beaches but I’m not sure I have a favorite. Some that I liked are those on the big island of Hawaii, in Cancun, on the outer banks of NC, and on the Oregon Coast. Also, when I was in my 20?s I went to Venice Beach in California and that was a unique experience! LOVE the fabrics, thanks for the chance to win!
Lisa Marie, we don’t have an email or blog address for you, so please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing information and we’ll get your fabric out to you ASAP.
Stay tuned for more great fabric introductions here at Fat Quarterly!
Congratulations to the two winners of our Summersault fat quarter bundle giveaway!
#9, Sarah @ Pings And Needles, who said:
“Oh I just love this line of fabric … I need to make a quilt for my little god-daughter and this line would be perfect! She loves jumping in puddles and is generally tigger-like! Thank you for the chance … and a lovely interview too …”
#108, Heather, who said:
“I’d make a quilt for sure! I love the fabrics! I’m not sure what I what kind of quilt I’d made but I’d probably mix the fabrics with other ones I have.”
Congratulations to Sarah & Heather! Please email us at email@example.com with your mailing information and we’ll send your fabric out ASAP.
Thanks to everyone who entered our LouLouThi fabric giveaway, courtesy of the Fat Quarter Shop! From 670 comments, we’ve randomly selected the following two winners:
#568, Deb, who said:
LOVE. That’s all I can say. I’d definitely be doing a quilt. I can’t wait to start my first one (a couple of projects to finish up first!). My husband’s aunt gave me a few Turning Twenties patterns, so I might do that…but I love this pattern from the FQS:
#146, Kristie, who said:
I love both colorways. There are so many things I’d like to make with them – clutches, wallets, bucket hats, summer scarves, …. If I got to choose a pattern it’d be the WVH Trifold Wallet PDF Sewing Pattern or an Oliver and S pattern. So hard to choose with all the fantastic options.
Congratulations, Deb and Kristie! Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing information, and we’ll be sure your fabric is sent along ASAP.
Remember, our Summersault fabric giveaway is still open. And be sure to keep reading for more fabulous fabric giveaways here on the Fat Quarterly blog.
When we launched our first ever Readers’ Competition back in January, we were hoping that maybe a few readers would submit their projects made from Fat Quarterly patterns. We never expected to receive so many fantastic entries! We were truly blown away by the beauty and creativity of each and every entry. BIG thanks to everyone who shared their work with us.
We broke the competition down into two categories: quilts, and other project types. Here are the 12 entries we received for the quilt category:
Top row (left to right): Jewel Box by Doe, Sanctuary by Johanna, Fall equinox by Lee, Mini Bob by Shruti
Middle row (left to right): Rooted by Annie, Sanctuary by Linda, Little Folks Sanctuary by Liz, Jewel Box by Cindy
Bottom row (left to right): Urban Circus by Judith, Fat Geese by Dana, Crazy patchwork by Jo, windowpane by Linda
And here are the 20 fabulous entries in the “other projects” category:
Row 1 (left to right): Cabbage Bag by Judith, Tree Skirt by Dana, Flying Fish Table Runner by Krista, Merrylegs by Jennifer, Utility Apron by Terri
Row 2 (left to right): Circular Logic by Janet, Utility Apron by Shruti, Hex bath mat by Karlyn, Pillow by Britt-Inger, Pouch by Kimberly
Row 3 (left to right): Birdie Embroidery by Wendy, Evynn pillow by Jenn, pouch by Mari, Tree Skirt by Mary, Autumn pillow by Mary
Row 4 (left to right): Bathmat by Florence, Hexed-in Pillow by Kati, bathmat by Heidi, Hexed-in Pillow by Karen, Cerenjinha by Margarida
It was WAY too difficult to judge the competition ourselves — plus, we didn’t want to be biased towards the projects made from patterns that we each designed! — so we assembled a panel of crazy talented guest judges to do the heavy lifting. They’re bloggers, quilters, designers, authors, shop owners, and (of course) Fat Quarterly readers! We’d like to thank our judges, whose thoughtful evaluation of all of the entries helped us select the winners:
So have we made you wait long enough? Without further ado, we’re pleased to announce the winners of our first Readers’ Competition!
