It's Fabric Giveaway Friday!

 SweetestThing-JR

FatQuarterShop-275(1)My sponsor 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, they continue to branch out with the best fabrics, exclusive kits, quilt clubs, BOMs, and more. And they will always be driven by the passion that Kimberly founded the store upon, 

which is always giving you the best products and service!

Comment #340 -- MoeWest who said...
I made a jellyroll race quilt once. I didn't really like the stripey look of it, so I split it into pieces of 4 rows each, cut squares, sewed the squares with rows going in opposite directions, cut HSTs, sewed HST's together and now I find it much more interesting.
Congratulations Moe!!! I will be in touch shortly!

It's like precuts are protected by a forcefield that doesn't alllow them to be used - they can just be fondled and admired! I don't know why that happens - I need to put on my big girl panties and learn to CUT into these beautiful fabrics, lol!
