Okay, you will have to excuse the 2 posts for the day, but I really needed these to be separate! My friend Laura, over at Quokka Quilts, is having the most amazing giveaway. For those of you who are quilters and familiar with the Fat Quarter Shop, you will know that they regularly feature ‘Blogger’s Choice‘ Bundles, where a famous blogger choices a selection of 12 prints and 3 solids from the entire shop, which is then sold in a fat quarter bundle. Laura came up with the idea that we, the little people, should also get a chance to do this, and asked the Fat Quarter shop to sponsor a giveaway whereby the best selection of fabric is made into a half yard bundle and sent to the blogger who has created it. In fact, since it has since proved so popular, they’re actually going to send out bundles to the 3 best choices. Amazing, right?
I spent a
ridiculous amount of time couple of hours coming up with a bundle, but then they sold out of 2 of my choices, and the replacements just weren’t doing it for me, it all seemed a bit blah, so I started again last night. They had also sold out of the one that I wanted to start with, but then I discovered that they had new fabric in since last week, so win some, lose some! Anywho, here’s my bundle:
I went for kind of whimsical in bold basic colours, wouldn’t this be fun to play with? Especially the ‘how to make a paper hat’ fabric :oD

I have, thus far, held off on buying this, but ya know, if I don’t win, I may think about it!
Fun bundle Katy! And you did well finding a couple of good blues, there dont seem to be many to pick from at the moment. I hadnt seen that paper hat print before, looks sweet!
I particularly like the one that's like a grid of diamonds! As always it's the ones with contrasting colours and patterns that I can see, but they have to look pretty too! Would happily wear a jumper with that design on! Good luck in the competition! 🙂
Oh that's cute!! That yellow paper hat one is very popular it seems! BTW, is anyone else getting the impression that Giles is only PRETENDING to be blind for internet notoriety? maybe he's really a 50 something female quilter masquerading as a blind man? 🙂 😛
Since there can be three winners, I hope you win (right after me, of course!!)
love your bundle!
Now how much time did you spend online yesterday searching for scrumptious fabrics and inspiring photos for your mosaic? Be honest…
I love the honey comb blue one.It is funny how we all like something different.
I love the bundle and think you did a wonderful job. So what if you wasted…er spent such a huge chunk of time on selecting? You've pick a winner. Hugs
I love those gnomey fairy people thingies! Good luck with your entry. 🙂
what a fun bundle. I'd buy it
Hee hee you did it! Meant to comment on this before, it's fab, totally different to everything else… I thought I'd do mine quickly, but I ended up spending hours on it…it's a time stealer! x
