A Major Award!

And it's not a leg lamp!

The Fat Quarter Shop had a Mega Quilt Market Sweepstakes contest.  I answered all the questions for my entry.  I forgot about it.  Weeks later I get an email saying I won a sweepstakes and I needed to provide my information.  I guess I am very suspicious.  I thought it was a scam.  But, then something was tickling the back of my brain and I started getting butterflies in my tummy.  I went on FQS's blog and it all came back to me!  This was no scam!  I actually was a winner in the...

(yes, I'm yelling!)

FQS was giving away 4 different buckets chock-full of quilty goodness to 12 lucky winners! You can see the video of all of the prize buckets here.   I won bucket #4 and they actually sent the bucket!  Look at all this stuff...

Let's go through it, shall we?  First up, a beautiful bundle of April Rosenthal's new Best.Day.Ever. ... look at this colorful stack!  I was so excited about this -  I love April's Quiltcast podcast with Amy Ellis and I'm thrilled to have her fabrics!
Next was a stack of Far Far Away by Heather Ross from Windham Fabrics (Get outta town! Really?  This basket just gets cooler and cooler!)
And yet another stack..the beautiful Tule by Leah Duncan  from  Art Gallery Fabrics...
As if that all wasn't exciting enough, they included two designer boxes of Aurifil threads...Edyta Sitar's Over the Rainbow and V and Co's Simply Color (I actually have this fabric line on my shelf!)
Gorgeous!
Here's a beautiful set of Bali Crackers a/k/a 10" batik squares...
A trio of mini patterns and the Mini Hex N More ruler from my friend Julie of Jaybird Quilts!
A bottle of Appli-Glue and a whole case of Sewline items...their great marking pencils, glue pen, refills, erasers (I love their stuff)...
Five different magazines...
And I was really excited to get this new book from Little Miss Shabby Corey Yoder.  (I'm currently stitching Corey's free Quilty Stitches cross stitch-a-long).
Two great books from the Me and My Sister Designs gals
And these two fun patterns...
And look!  I can even open a beer with my beautiful new blue bucket while I'm sewing!
I've always loved shopping at Fat Quarter Shop...your order is always so nicely wrapped and they have a great selection.
A big fat Thank You to Fat Quarter Shop!!  You rock!
