Fat Quarter Shop: An Introduction and a Giveaway (Or Two)!

This giveaway is closed!  
Thank you for entering!

Today, I am pleased to introduce you to The Southern Institute’s newest sponsor, Fat Quarter Shop.  Fat Quarter Shop is your online spot for the best selection of Moda fabrics on the web.  Whether you’re looking for fat quarter bundles, layer cakes, charm packs, or jelly rolls (are you getting hungry?), Fat Quarter Shop has what you need.

Fat Quarter Shop is also your go to shop for designer fabrics from Michael Miller, Alexander Henry, Riley Blake, Robert Kaufmann, and so many more.  They offer precut fabric as well as fabric by the yard.  You can find quilt kits and patterns, books, notions and threads too.  Fat Quarter Shop offers same day shipping and a large sale section.

The great news is that they are offering two of you a $50 gift card.  

That’s right… two lucky readers will each win $50 credit to the Fat Quarter Shop, to spend as they please.  Am I jealous?  Just a little.  Would you allow me to give you a taste of what you might choose to spend your $50 on?  Here are some of my favorites:

What do you think?  
Could you find $50 worth of fabric that you love?  
I bet you could!

Here’s how to enter:
