My Day & Quilt Shop A Day Contest

Hey Guys!

I hope you are having a good day!  Today was a no sew day. Instead I did some online shopping for the Pile O’ Fabrics Skill Block of the Month.  I have finally decided on this fabric…it is called Chicopee by Denyse Schmidt.   I looked it up after reading Pile O’ Fabric’s post.  When she mentioned the print, I looked it up and instantly fell in love.  I think she is using this as the back but I plan to use the prints and solids in the back and in the front.  I purchased at West Wood Acres.  You should head on over there….I think she has great prices!


I got some coordinating solids also…I think I will get more as I go along.  I will share the solids I got once they come in the mail.  Well that’s enough of that …Let me tell you about the contest.

I saw this picture on Facebook on Free Spirit’s Facebook page… If you click on the picture you will be sent to their Facebook page.


This was the description:

Tula says she loves her local quilt shop. How about you? 

Join in the fun. Visit your favorite independent quilt or fabric shop, take a photo inside the shop, and upload the photo to the contest page at Facebook.com/quiltshopday with a caption saying why YOU love your local, independent quilt or fabric shop. Fans will vote for their favorite picture!

You could win a gift certificate to your favorite quilt shop or a Brother Sewing Machine. Deadline is 11:59 pm January 24, 2013. 

Well… how many of you are willing to take the challenge?  I am heading over to my local quilt shop, Intown Quilters tomorrow.  I plan on taking pictures and letting those sweet ladies know about this website …if they don’t already!  I will be back tomorrow to show you the picture, until then Sew Pretty!
