Have you seen this? and a Giveaway!


Have you been here to the Fat Quarterly E-zine?  It is great, with loads of fabulous information, a quarterly magazine published by pdf-- very GREEN, and tutorials on things like machine quilting, hand quilting and so much more.  Plus, John aka QuiltDad is one of the great people (there are a few other cool peeps who started it  too- but I only know John!) who began this E-zine and I am still wondering how he has time to be a great Dad, a quilter, have a career beyond quilting, and support a blossoming career in the quilt industry as well-- oh and he is a husband to a pretty great gal too and she quilts too.  Whew! Amazing!

So go check out the Fat Quarterly website, come back here and leave a comment here about your favorite thing on their site/blog. and you will be entered in my giveaway!  Oh and don't forget to enter the giveaway on the Fat Quarterly blog too!

What do you win you ask????  a free copy of their first issue of Fat Quarterly (it already came out but you will want the first copy-it's an $8.00 value) and a copy of TidBits from Triangles ($18.00 value-- just because I want to give away another one!  Go ahead and tell your friends about my giveaway and you will get another shot at winning, just be sure to post about it on your blog and let me know in your comment!

You have until 9 PM MST on  Fabulous Friday June 11th to enter my giveaway.

And for heavens sake, please include an email addy for me.  Because if you win-- I need to let you know!

I follow the fat quarterly blog and I love all the photos of the modern quilts, cushions etc. I get so many ideas when I see their work.

Jona said...

I really like how they work together and create things that are a bit out of the box. I read their tutorials, too, and there is almost always some little trick in there that I didn't know before or a way of doing something that I never considered before.
I love discovering things like that!

I like the tutorials, but a close second is their book reviews. I never know if it's worth it to buy another new craft book, and it's fun to get an objective opinion.
