A Gardenvale Giveaway sponsored by Green Fairy Quilts


Today, Judi and Clint Madsen from Green Fairy Quilts have generously sponsored a giveway of layer cake of Gardenvale, by Jen Kingwell!


When Clint suggested a give away, I suggested the Gardenvale Layer Cake because I know several of you are making or considering making a Jen Kingwell pattern. I am just now ready to get started on her My Small World quilt pattern. After I met Jen and Richard at Quilt Market and saw her actual quilt, I was sold - even though this is not my usual style, I am making it anyway. My copy of Quilt Mania - with the pattern in it - even arrived from France late last week. I was thinking that if you were working on one of Jen's scrappy quilt patterns, a layer cake of her own fabrics would be a nice addition to your fabric options.


Let me tell you a bit about Green Fairy Quilts. Judi Madsen - her beautiful blog is here - is a fantastic, award winning long arm quilter, author, and pattern designer. Her work is stunning and inspirational. The shop is run by Clint, who selects the fabric, runs all aspects of the website and takes care of customer service. He is a dream to deal with, always quick to respond to a request or question.

I regularly purchase from Green Fairy Quilts and am never disappointed. They focus on a wide selection of the best priced precuts, threads and notions. In fact, Green Fairy Quilts is prepared to beat any advertised price plus shipping costs from that shop with their price plus shipping costs, auctions excluded. They also have free shipping in the USA and free shipping for larger orders for the rest of the world. Besides fabrics, I have purchased a lot of beautiful thread from Green Fairy Quilts, they have a huge selection. Besides the prices and products, I love the excellent customer service.

So to enter the giveaway, which I will draw randomly, you can have up to three entries, each comment is one entry:

 ---- this giveaway is now closed -----
  • Leave me a comment, if you like you can tell me what your summer/winter holiday plans are,
  • Sign up for the Green Fairy Quilts Newsletter here and come back and let me know you did or already do. The newsletter is the best way to keep up with their regular sale features and new products. And,
  • If you follow me somewhere, on the blog or elsewhere - I'm shecanquilt most everywhere - leave a third comment letting  me know where and how.
Edit:  Please, please, leave me your email or your instagram or twitter handle or some way to find you if you win! I was about to reply to the comment of "bidtl" to say I have won a give away as commenter #1 but she is no reply. 

I'll leave this give away open until about 6:00 a.m. Monday June 29 and I'll announce the winner then.

Now I am off to have dinner and then to start pulling fabrics for my quilt.

Best,

Leanne

I plan on doing a lot of quilting this summer, along with hitting the beach and spending time enjoying the sun - assuming the weather here cooperates! What a great giveaway!

I am anxiously awaiting my own Small World pattern from France. I am also a reader of Green Fairy Quilts Newsletter, and recently been following your blog. So I have all the requirements to be a winner, except that I seem to be commenter number 1. Sigh. Everyone knows that in a random number selection, 1 is rarely picked. I guess I'll just sew along with you when you start the Small world quilt.

This summer we're not going away. We have a 14yr old smooth collie named Sandy that's not feeling the best after 2 bouts of vertigo in 3 mths. We're staying home to spent as much time as we can with her she also has many tumors some fatty some questionable. The vet has her on MEDS and told us just to keep her comfortable, so that's what we're doing. She's the best dog we've ever had she rescued me when she was 3 and I was going through chemo. Truly she is the best dog ever. Thanks to you, Judi and Clint for the generous giveaway! ;-> Toni Anne

I have a line up projects I've got all the fabric and patterns ready to go. monitor2maven(at)Comcast.net
