I'm Singing!

One of my favorite online stores for fabric is They have great prices and fast service. I've never been shorted even a smidge of fabric; in fact, the cuts are always generous.
The fabric selection is lovely and bountiful. A newsletter comes to my virtual mailbox every week or so featuring a designer and fabric selection at a special price, usually a certain percentage off. My fabric appetite is always whetted by the many material selections tantalizingly  displayed. To top it off, they have "give aways" with every newsletter:  a $20 shopping prize for the Blog Link of the Week as well as a $50 shopping spree for one lucky winner who has logged in during the week.
Recently, Lollyquiltz was chosen as the Blog Link of the Week.  I was so excited, as it is the first time I'd ever won anything in the virtual world (and not because I haven't tried!). Not only did I get to pick $20 worth of fabric for free, but I enjoyed lots of new visitors to my blog after the winner posting!
Because I know you are about to faint with anticipation at this point, I will put you out of your misery and show you what I decide to spend my prize money on.  Are you ready?  Here it is!....

This Designer Sampler contains eighth yard cuts of every fabric in the line. The packaging is so cute that I can't bring myself to take it apart yet, so just keep thumbing through the fabrics dreaming about a project.

Even though I had to spend a little more than my alloted prize, it is so worth it!

I feel a little like Kermit singing about Miss Piggy!


  1. I have that same frog in my garden, and those same fabrics in my stash! And I also love QuiltHome... I just took advantage of their Kaffe sale yesterday :)

    I can't wait to see what you make with that AMH fabric... I have a LOT of it stashed away waiting for inspriation to strike!!

    Congrats on your prize!!

  2. Carla, I love Quilt Home too. I've ordered from them before, they started my Amy Butler addiction. LOL! And I've visited many of the blog winners before. Maybe one day I'll be one too :). Great choice, can't wait to see what you do with it. I understand about not wanting to open it, they do make them so darn cute!!!

  3. Well, as pretty as I think the fabric is, I had a hard time even noticing it's presence in the picture -- that frog pitcher is fantastic. So, soooo cute!!!

  4. I have never shopped there but I'm sure my hubby is already thanking you in advance for sharing the link! ;) Congrats on winning! Free fabric is the best...

    Jennifer :)
