Sponsored Giveaway from JAQS Fabrics

Today we have a generous giveaway thanks to JAQS Fabrics.  This has become one of my new favorite online fabric resources carrying lots of wonderful collections.  Joel Dewberry Heirloom? Check. Sarah Jane Children at Play? Check. Alexander Henry novelties? Check. Metro Living Dots? Check.  She even has some old favorites of mine that are hard to track down like this Valori Wells bird print I used in a quilt last summer or this cute Robert Kaufman Toyland.

I love how organized JAQS is and how easy it is to search the shop by color, style, designer, brand and fabric type. It's also easy to see how much inventory is left of each item. And I really appreciate that you can order fabric in Fat Quarters! This option is not always readily available at many online shops.

And speaking of fat quarters, Q has a sale section of her shop that sells bundles of 12 fq's for $15.00.
Q also has a lovely blog, JAQS Studio.  There you can be inspired by Q's latest quilt or craft projects and tutorials. You can also link up each week to Made By Me every Wednesday.

This week Q has generously offered to giveaway a:
  •  1/2 yard bundle of 4 different Sarah Jane Children At Play fabrics 
  • OR a $30 Gift Certificate to JAQS Fabrics to one lucky winner.
Please visit JAQS fabrics and let me know what your favorite print is.  Leave a comment on this post to be entered in the giveaway.  The giveaway ends Saturday, October 29 at midnight MST.

Thanks again, Q for your generosity with us fabric-loving fiends.


Congrats to the winner, Erin:

Sponsored Giveaway from Shabby Fabrics

The Shabby
Today we have a fabulous sponsored giveaway from the online shop, Shabby Fabrics.

Shabby Fabrics has a HUGE selection of fabrics from many different manufacturers (Moda, Lecien, Free Spirit, Riley Blake, Michael Miller, Robert Kaufman, etc. etc.) including the world's largest selection of Lakehouse fabrics. To view the Collections available go here, including some of my favorites like Flower Sugar, Strawberry Fields, and Sweet Nothings. And lines that are now more difficult to find like Punctuation and Lumiere de Noel. I LOVE the way the shop is organized and how easy it is to find what's available.

In addition to the great fabric selection there are nearly 1,000 patterns and books, notions, fat quarter sets and kits! They also have a great selection of Block of the Month projects including two applique quilts (Blessings of Spring and Blessings of Summer (from The Blessings Series with more on the way) designed by Jennifer, the gal behind Shabby Fabrics.  Jennifer has also designed several dozen quilt and table runner patterns which can be found in the Shabby Exclusives section of the website.

I love Jennifer's story starting Shabby Fabrics and thought you'd enjoy hearing it too:
My name is Jennifer Bosworth, owner of Shabby Fabrics. I am honored to be a guest at Diary of A Quilter.  Thank you so much, Amy!

The Shabby Fabrics story begins here. All along while growing up, I loved arts and crafts with every ounce of my being. When it came time to choose a career and go to college, I figured I couldn't make a living crafting so I pursued an aeronautical degree and became an airline pilot. I would take my hand sewing with me on trips and stitch to my heart's content while laying over at various hotels.  The love of crafting never left me. 

The events of September 11, 2001 changed the entire world and definitely my own personal world in a very big way.  Soon thereafter the airlines began furloughing pilots. Both my husband (also a United pilot) and I found ourselves out of work  with no health care, two children and a mortgage. These were indeed uncertain and scary times. All of the flying experience  I had accumulated over the last 20+ years suddenly meant nothing. No one was hiring pilots. I knew I would have to reinvent myself and awaken a skill set that I never even  knew I had.  

After much prayer and contemplation, I felt God urging me to do something I loved and knew a great deal about already. After all, we needed to find work right away! I applied for a business license and  began selling a few fabrics on ebay. Ten years later, we are selling fabrics from our own website worldwide and loving every moment. There is no question that God is behind the success of Shabby Fabrics. I have a wonderful staff that I enjoy working with each day. 

Besides buying products and deciding which projects will becomes kits, block of the month, etc, I also design a line of quilt patterns called Shabby Exclusives. Some of our designs have been featured recently in McCalls magazine. When I think to the future of our company, I remind myself to remain flexible and attentive to God's word and plan. After all, He's the author of this great book.

Blessings to you all,

Today, Jennifer has a VERY generous giveaway to you readers. Not one, but THREE gift certificates to Shabby Fabrics worth $50, $25, and $25. Who couldn't use those?

You have three ways enter this giveaway:

1. Visit the Shabby Fabrics website and sign up for their newsletter.

Come back here and leave one comment for each entry. Be sure to leave an email address if you are a no-reply blogger so that I can contact you if you win.

Thanks again Jennifer and Shabby Fabrics!

Indygo Junction Pattern Giveaway

Originally from this post.
And now I have something to share with you all!  I have some extra Indygo Junction patterns to share. And there's something for everyone - whether you're a vintage junkie too, or your tastes are a little more modern.

Giveaway #1 is this book of vintage embroidery patterns called A Stitch in Time with Mother Goose. The book contains over 25 vintage nursery rhyme embroidery designs and baby quilt and bib patterns.
And for those of you who are a little more modern in your tastes, Giveaway #2 is a collection of 4 recent patterns from Indygo Junction. They include a great apron pattern, a fabulous applique bag pattern, and two patterns to make trendy zipper and wool roving accessories.
I'm always impressed with the Indygo Junction patterns - they're well written and include good instructions and clear diagrams.  Here is a little zipper corsage I made for myself with the My Garden Zips pattern. (FYI -it's very tricky to take a picture of a corsage while you are wearing it.  Also, sorry to blind you with my pasty white arms.)

To enter the Giveaway, leave a comment and let me know if you prefer Vintage or Modern.  The answer "Both" is also acceptable.  (Because I would have to give that answer myself.  I used to be solely Vintage, but Modern quilting has nestled it's way into my heart.  It's like trying to pick which of your children you prefer - sometimes it's one, sometimes it's another. :) Please leave an email address if you are a no-reply blogger so I can contact you.

(As a matter of full disclosure: all of these items were provided for review with no other compensation.)

Giveaway closed.


 P. said...

Both! Love that zipper brooch. Thanks for a fun giveaway.

I'm a Vintage type of gal :-)
Congratulations Ladies. Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by. Glad to know I'm not the only one who happily straddles the vintage/modern divide.
