Rhapsodia Giveaway from The Intrepid Thread

This week was a bit of a bloggy celebration week for me. 200 followers (yay!) and I wrote my 100th blog post earlier in the week (yay again!) Plus I'm still kind of excited about my Fat Quarterly tutorial :o)

So to help me celebrate, the lovely Julie from The Intrepid Thread has offered a fantastic give away. If you don't know The Intrepid Thread, you can find Julie either on Etsy  or in her online shop. She carries a fantastic range of up-to-the-minute designer quilting fabric and her customer service is brilliant.

 So, to the giveaway! Julie has very generously offered a bundle of 10 fat quarters of the just-released Rhapsodia collection from Art Gallery Fabrics! Sigh. I wish I could win these, they are just gorgeous.


To enter the giveaway:


Simply comment on this blog post and you're in the running to win! If you feel like it, you could let me know what you'd make with this bundle of gorgeousness :o)


Optional extra entries:
* Follow The Intrepid Thread blog and leave me a comment saying you do. 
* Follow my blog, and leave me a comment saying you do.


How easy is that! I'll leave the competition open until next Saturday 12th May at 8pm Australian EST, at which time I'll close the comments and draw a random winner.

Update: Comments have how been closed!

Good luck!
xx Jess

Congratulations on 200 followers and 100 blog posts! That's great! I'm getting closer to my 100 post mark, but I'm not even up to 100 followers yet!

I was only looking at Rhapsodia this morning online - isn't it gorgeous? I don't know what I'd do with it if I won, but I know I REALLY want some! Is "sitting and admiring it all day" a valid option??

Samantha said...

Congratulations on your milestones!! This fabric is just gorgeous and I'd likely use it in a quilt that I have in mind for my daughter since the quilt I made for her twin bed when she moved up to a bed at 3 years old is about ready to start falling to pieces. (She's 21 now and I think its time for a more grown up quilt...)
