Fabric Giveaway Challenge and a New Sponsor. Welcome Mad About Patchwork!

Today I would like to introduce you to one of my new sponsors. Welcome Pam from Mad About Patchwork!

Mad About Patchwork has been selling fabric online for just over 4 years. At the time, Canadian online retailers were rare, and shipping from the US was sometimes expensive. The response from Canadians has been terrific.

Pam has always brought in fabric that appeals to her. Modern, fresh, fun is her tagline and she is always looking for something that people won’t necessarily find in their local quilt shops. Kona solids have become one of her best sellers, and she now stocks more than 140 colors. She can also custom cut charms and strips of any Kona color she has in stock. Which is super exciting for me! I have been collecting Kona Charms, and I am trying to get at least one charm of each color, for a special Kona Card Quilt I want to make. Yes, I am a Robert Kaufman lover.

In the last year Pam has added shot cottons from Westminster, color stories from Michael Miller and Designer Essentials from Freespirit to her line up of quilting basics. And of course there are always current collections to choose from – you will find Patty Young for Michael Miller, Laurie Wisbrun, Ann Kelle and Pink Light Design for Robert Kaufman, Denyse Schmidt and Heather Bailey for Freespirit in the shop now. Keep an eye on the Coming Soon section of the website … you can see what she is expecting in the next few months.

One of the things I love about Mad About Patchwork is their custom bundles. Pam is so good at putting together custom bundles from different lines of fabric, which really takes the guess work out of choosing coordinating prints.

Mad About Patchwork is online only, although Pam does travel to shows four or five times a year. She will also travel to guilds on request. And local customers are always able to stop by with an appointment to shop!

Fabric Giveaway Challenge

Pam and I have come together to offer you a Fabric Giveaway Challenge. This isn't just your typical giveaway! Here is how it works.

Giveaway Challenge

The Rules

Winter Fun Fabric Bundle

4 Lucky winners chosen by random will receive a Winter Fun Fat Eight Bundle of 13 different prints which include (from bottom) - Kona Coal, Kona Lime, Kona Orange, Kona Snow, Stockholm Honeycomb Lime, Heaven & Helsinki Mini Tulip Orange, Remix Argyle Steel, Remix Dot Steel, Andalucia Jester Tangerine, Remix Dot Lime, City Block Forget Me Knot Dove Grey, Remix Dot Tangerine, & Winter Animals from Timeless Treasures.

Now here is the catch, the winners will have until August 29th to create something with their fabric bundle. A quilt, mini quilt, bag, the possibilities are endless. You must use at least a portion of all 13 fabrics, and you can add additional fabrics if needed. Once you are done you will need to photograph you completed project and submit it to me (by August 29th). At which time I will feature you and your project on my blog!

I will announce the winners on Wednesday, August 1st. The winners must contact me by Thursday, August 2nd, otherwise I will have to choose a new winner, we will need to ship the bundles out by Friday, August 3rd.

Because of the time constraints we can only offer this challenge to North America residents.
