Fabulous Fabric Bundle Competition { and a Giveaway Winner! }

I hope you all had a fantastic holiday!!!! Tonight is actually the big Christmas party on my side of the family, so I'm not yet ready to do any kind of post holiday recap. I am however ready for a little sewing time, but that's not happening yet either. So, today I have something else to share...

Last night while scrolling through my reader, I saw something exciting and very share worthy -- A new competition is just beginning! A Fabulous Fabric Bundle Competition hosted by Laura at QuokkaQuilts and sponsored by Fat Quarter Shop.

I wasted no time and got right to work on mine! You all must know how I love joining in these type of events by now! I'm always such a fan of these colors together, so I didn't have to spend too much time thinking about that. And lately, the more I see Domestic Bliss, the more I love it, so I started with two of my favorites from that collection and before I knew it, I was finished! What do you think?

Blogger's Choice Fat Quarter Bundle competition  -- So fun!!!

The rules ask you to go to The Fat Quarter Shop website and choose 12 coordinating prints and 3 solids from their selections. I simply created a new folder on my computer and started saving the fabric I loved. I didn't stop at 15, I chose more like 30 and then made some cuts. I used Big Huge Labs Mosaic Maker to create my fabric bundle mosaic, choosing 4 columns and 4 rows. Because that makes 16 photo slots, I simply added the Fat Quarter Shop logo to the the bottom right corner. Here it is for you, if you'd like to do the same thing. I have a thing about symmetry and balance, so I think it helps finish off the mosaic nicely. And look, my fabric selections match it! :)

Now you have the opportunity to choose and potentially WIN not your own Fat Quarter bundle of fabric, but a WHOLE HALF YARD of 15 fabrics of your choice - 12 prints and 3 solids, courtesy of the wonderful Kimberly at the Fat Quarter Shop. To read all the info and rules, please visit Laura at QuokkaQuilts! I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!

And now, a Giveaway Winner!
