Fat Quarter Style



Hi!! Happy Summer!!! To celebrate all the fun of summer...bbq's, beach time, pool time, flip flops and corn on the cob, lets add a fun giveaway!


The sweet ladies over at the Fat Quarter Shop sent me TWO copies of their new book by It's So Emma called Fat Quarter Style.  One for me, and one for YOU!!!


This book is so amazing. It has patterns for 12 delicious quilts and each one is prettier than the other. All the patterns are written for beginner quilters, though seasoned quilters will love them too. Lots of eye candy pictures, and plenty of solid information for you to complete a quilt will will be proud of and love for years to come.

All you need to do to enter is to leave me comment here telling me what you are working on this summer. A quilt? Making Jam? Your tan?

I will pick a name from a hat on August 2nd and announce the winner so that you can follow along on their blog tour!! Good Luck!!!

GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.

I love crochet so I'm trying to decide some cute things to crochet for it. Wish me luck :)
