GIVEAWAY: The Intrepid Thread


I'm lucky because I have a friend in the fabric business. Julie and I are both members of the local modern quilt guild and you can just imagine the happy chatter that goes on between a fabric fiend (me) and a fabric shop owner (Julie). I thought I knew a lot about fabric, but Julie knows even more! The members of our guild keep trying to stump her with fabric questions and we haven't been able to...yet.
Imagine sharing a quilt at a guild meeting and someone asking, "what's the name of that green fabric?", puzzled looks all around while we try to remember the name of it; then Julie saves us by naming the designer, the fabric line, and the release date. She sure knows her fabric!! Even more than that she is an incredibly kind, funny, generous woman and a good friend. Super lucky I tell you. 

(she's probably blushing right now... it's ok though because it's all true.)

Do you want to know why are you are so lucky? Remember the other day when I went fabric shopping for my latest project, Peaceful Pagoda? Well, Julie is giving away a custom bundle inspired by that post!! AND it's available in her shop so you can get some and make your own Peaceful Pagoda project!


Custom Bundle at The Intrepid Thread
**Edited to add: The dragonfly print is from Kate Spain's new line, Good Fortune.  It's called, Tranquility Dragonfly.  Here it is in aqua and lavender.  There are names and links to all of the prints I bought from Julie in my post, Peaceful Pagoda.




GIVEAWAY:
The Intrepid Thread is giving away a custom bundle of 11 Fat Quarters. It's super easy to enter and everyone has three chances to win. International entries are welcome. One winner will be chosen randomly next Friday, February 10th. The winner will be contacted via email.

Edited to add: I will be choosing a SECOND WINNER on Friday.  Kate Spain has offered to give away a Good Fortune jelly roll!!  w00t!!









Edited to add: Even more good news!!  There have been so many entries, Julie is giving away another custom bundle.  That means I will be choosing a THIRD WINNER on Friday!!  Yahoo!!
