Green Fairy Quilts - sponsored Monday giveaway

edited: This lovely give away is now closed.

Today Green Fairy Quilts is generously sponsoring a give away of a Fat Quarter Bundle of the newly released line Milk Cow Kitchen by Mary Jane for Moda. I'm going to show you some of the prints in this very retro bundle that reminds me of my grandmother's kitchen while I tell you a bit about this lovely on-line quilt shop.

Green Fairy Quilts is a family run business by Judi and Clint Madsen. Judi Madsen is an extraordinary award winning long arm quilter who teaches, has designed beautiful patterns and has a book out - Quilting Wide Open Spaces - that I consult often when I am quilting. Judi shares her quilting on her beautiful blog Green Fairy Quilts.

Yes, there are cows in this bundle.

At the Green Fairy Quilt shop, Clint does most of the leg work, now assisted by Judi's sister. Clint is lovely to work with - if you email him a question, day or night, chances are that an answer will pop up within a few minutes. Green Fairy Quilts focuses on pre-cut fabric bundles, and select yardage, which they make available at excellent prices. They also have sales and feature a Monday special, which you can find out about by signing up for their newsletter here.

Look, retro milk bottle caps.

Clint and Judi also do active ongoing charity work for children in Romania, and have a registered charity to support that work. Their next trip to Romania is scheduled for this fall.

This print  is just plain cute.

Green Fairy Quilts also a large selection of notions, including a huge range of the Aurifil Thread Collections - seriously, I think they have most every collection I have seen lately - and Superior Threads So Fine cones at great prices. They even carry my favourite Gingher Rotary Cutter, which, being metal, has a lovely weight to it, in both regular and left handed varieties. You can also find some yardage, batting and patterns in this shop.

This is my favourite print in the line. It would be so perfect for the back of a quilt for a guy.

Green Fairy Quilts offers reduced pricing on most every product in their store. They have free shipping in the USA and discounted shipping to the rest of the world. 

This floral is also so retro and would look great as a border or a back. Green Fairy Quilts is carrying this one as yardage too.

To enter the randomly selected draw, go and have a look at the Green Fairy Quilts selection of fabric, thread, and other items and come back and leave one comment letting me know what you especially like in their shop. If you are an old or new follower of my blog or me in some way, you can leave a second comment telling me how you follow me.

I will close the draw on Thursday, August 14, 2014 around supper time at my house, use the random number generator to pick one of the comments, and announce the winner then. Good luck and although I do try to reply to comments on my blog, I am usually not able to do so for give aways.

A large number of folks who have entered draws here lately do not have an email attached to their profiles. Make sure you do or leave me a way to find you in your comment (blog address, instagram name, email, whatever you like). If I have no trail to find you I will draw again.

Finally, Green Fairy Quilts have sponsored this give away and they sponsor my blog, but they did not ask or require me to write a single nice thing about them in doing so. I choose to shop at this store regularly, and the opinions expressed here are my own.
