The Printed Bolt

Last spring at a quilting retreat I met two lovely ladies behind The Printed Bolt blog.
The focus is on fabric design.
 Each month they post a challenge for designers and then the designers have to create a print that supports the months theme.
It is really fun to watch and they have a great line-up of guest judges who have the final say on who wins for that month.
 Some of the judges this round are Amy Butler, Kathy Mack, and Rashida Coleman-Hale.
 Then like most competitions, a designer is eliminated until there is a winner.
It is a lot of fun to watch and see all the designs, plus they often do a giveaway. 
Which, is the point of this whole post!
Last summer I won (this was actually the first thing I have ever won) a $50 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop. I was so excited to win and to win $50!!

The picture above are the spoils of that win. Many of which are now in my low volume quilt, my current WIP. I also have been collecting Dr. Seuss fabric and I grabbed a few solids. The orange dot will go in a polka-dot quilt as soon as I find the perfect pattern for it.

I am still loving this win! Have you won anything lately?
