Quilting 101: Pre-cut Fabric*CLOSED*

It's hard to imagine but there actually are people out there that do not know what pre-cut fabric is, but there are. Charm packs, jelly rolls, honey buns, turnovers, layer cakes...........I don't know if that's making me hungry or just giving me the urge to buy more fabric.
Pre-cut fabric is the greatest thing to happen to quilting since the rotary cutter! Pre-cut squares, triangles, strips, you name it! You can whip together a quilt in no time flat. The Moda Bake Shop regularly has easy quilt projects that use pre-cut fabric, cutting down the total time you spend on making your quilt by as much as half! You can find great prices on pre-cuts on Etsy, eBay and a few select quilt shops like Green Fairy Quilts.
If you're one of those folks who have never owned a charm pack, have I got a deal for you. I'll be giving away 1 charm pack to 1 lucky winner. You'll have your choice of either 1 Punctuation Charm Pack (for the retro loving quilter) or 1 12 Days of Christmas Charm Pack (for the more modern quilter.) Both collections are fabulous in my opinion!

Here's what you can do to enter:
1. Leave a comment here for 1 entry
2. Share this giveaway on FB or Twitter for 1 entry
3. Blog about this giveaway for 1 entry
Leave a comment for each one that you chose to do!
This giveaway is open to everyone, even if you already have a huge stack on charm packs in your stash. ;)
Giveaway ends this NEXT Friday the 17th at midnight.
Happy Quilting!

Oh my, what a wonderful giveaway! I love charm packs, and either of those two would be a welcome addition to my collection! I just made a tote bag out of a charm pack of Summer in the City by Urban Chicks that I had won in a giveaway a while ago, and it turned out so darn cute! Charm packs are THE BEST!

New reader here. What a great giveaway. I started quilting a couple of years ago. An elderly lady at church taught a bunch of us. Cutting is always the hardest part for me. I would be happy with either quilt package. Please enter me in the giveaway.

FUn -- hope I win! :) I would love to get my hands on the punctuation pre cuts -- I've never had a charm pack before, and it sounds, well, charming :)

Well, I FINALLY had a chance to come over and see where you "live" and I see I'm just in time! What a great idea for a giveaway. I hope to be back soon:-).

Liz said...

Great giveaway! I've only ever had two charm packs (still unused)--I started quilting in the 90s, before these newfangled "pre-cuts," and I guess I haven't caught up yet. I'd love to win the Punctuation!

Deb said...

I'd love to be entered for a charm pack. I would use it to make a table runner for my sister-in-law's new home. We'll visit her in October...that would be great to take a Christmas Kate Spain table runner with me!!! Thanks for the chance!
