Surprise! Weekend Giveaway: Fat Quarterly

>> Thursday, April 22, 2010

Have you guys all heard the buzz swirling around the new sewing eZine that's debuting next week? The Fat Quarterly is launching next week and is an e-magazine written by modern sewists for modern sewist.

Each quarterly issue is going to be packed with: patterns, tutorials, challenges, interviews, previews of upcoming sewing lines and more. Are you super excited yet? You should be!

Look at the talented list of people involved in creating the eZine:

Tacha @ Hanies
Katy @ I'm a Ginger Monkey
John @ Quilt Dad
Kate @ One Flew Over ...
Brioni @ Flossyblossy
Aneela @ Comfortstitching

Also, as a Virtual Quilting Bee tie-in ... do you see what all 6 of these people have in common? Yup - they're all in at least one (some lots more than one!) Virtual Quilting Bee! See what a great community this is?

A Giveaway! Fat Quarterly has generously donated a copy of their first issue to us so one of YOU will be the first to see it & all it's goodness. It doesn't come out until Tuesday the 27th, but just comment ONCE on this entry for a chance to win a copy that will be emailed to you on Monday the 26th. That's it. If you want to tell me what you're sewing or what the weather is like where you live right now (rainy and cold here ... grrrr!) you can do that, too! Contest will only be open until Monday the 26th at 10:00am (MST) - so you've got to be quick.

If you don't win, don't worry, you can purchase a copy of the eZine that will be emailed to you on Tuesday. From the sneak peeks that have been posted already in their Flickr group I guarantee you're not going to want to miss out on this!

Two days ago it was stiflingly hot! Today? SNOW!

Arnden April 22, 2010 at 10:40 AM  

I definitely will be getting myself a copy if I can't win one. This was such a great idea!
I am kind of disappointed that we will have rain all day on Earth Day, but it is a gentle reminder of how the earth works so well.

Val Miller April 22, 2010 at 10:41 AM  

I can't wait to see it ... lots of buzzing going around the web about this creation!!
It is sunny and cool where I am today, and I am reading blogs instead of working - shhhhh don't tell my boss : )

Enviro Girl April 22, 2010 at 10:41 AM  

I'm in Vancouver, Canada and it's a sunny Earth Day here! This morning I was sewing some string pieced blocks for the Red and Aqua VQB (my first!).

It's mostly sunny and warm here (in Hawaii, so it's usually like that).

As for sewing I have a million projects going, but just realized my only niece's 1st bday is in a week, so I must finish her stuffed bunny and doll quilt.

whatktmadenext April 22, 2010 at 1:52 PM  

Oh, I'd love to win. The projects are just so gorgeous!

Jantine April 22, 2010 at 2:06 PM

RDV April 22, 2010 at 2:06 PM

Meg April 22, 2010 at 6:45 PM  

Awesome! Thank you for this giveaway!

Janet April 22, 2010 at 7:30 PM  

We are having the earliest spring. Snow is usually here until at least the beginning of May but it's almost gone and the puddles of water are even dry. It's 6:30 p.m. and I'm sitting on the couch in glorious full sun. My cucumbers and zuchini plants have buds. What am I going to do - it's much too early to put them in the greenhouse? Love to win the magazine, btw.

monkeymomcindy April 22, 2010 at 8:39 PM  

I would love to win this ezine! It was raining so much that the power went out for about 1 hour. I am a virtual bee member of the HIVE in Not your grandma's quilting bee.
momcindy is my email

Melissa April 22, 2010 at 9:19 PM  

I'm very excited about this ezine! :) Right now, I'm sewing on a couple of blocks for a raffle quilt the LA Modern Quilt Guild is making.

Enjoying this sire, Erin, and can't wait to see FQ next week!

Hola from lovely and cool upstate New York. I'm sewing slouch bags from Akiko Mano's book, Linen, Wood, Cotton. For those who have the book and have not tried it, go online and get the errata information before cutting and sewing. There are a few mistakes in the pattern. With corrections, though, it is easy, unusual, comfortable, and numbers of other positive adjectives.

wishes, true and kind April 23, 2010 at 2:00 PM  

Yea, Fat Quarterly! Can't wait for that first issue!

Elena April 23, 2010 at 3:26 PM  

Can't wait to April 27. I need to know the content of the first issue!!!

carmel April 23, 2010 at 4:19 PM

Mary on Lake Pulaski April 23, 2010 at 5:08 PM  

This sounds like a great source of inspiration from some superstars! Thanks for an opportunity to win the first issue.

Darling Chatterbox April 24, 2010 at 7:43 AM  

I am looking forward to the first issue of this e-zine, even more so if I win it!
Lately I have actually been on a roll with my quilting. I've completed 2 quilt tops from start to finish in the last 2 weekends. They are all ready to be sent off to the long arm quilters!

Jeanne April 24, 2010 at 4:01 PM  

Sounds exciting, something new to read. WOOHOOO. Thanks for the opportunity to win the first issue, think I will be buying it if I don't win. :)

ANudge April 24, 2010 at 10:24 PM  

Love ezines - they're so green!

Would love to win this,

Karie April 25, 2010 at 12:17 AM  

Win or not I am looking forward to seeing what FQ has to offer. If my suspicions are right, it would be nice to get a free copy out of all the ones I am SURE to buy after! Thanks for the chance to win!

Mary C April 25, 2010 at 6:45 AM  

Recently joining an online quilt bee has really expanded my horizons on the quilting world. I've been wondering why magazine publishers are not getting it? That the same tired old quilting mag format isn't cutting it any more! Can't wait to see this new ezine! Mary

Kris April 25, 2010 at 8:03 AM  

I'm super excited for this to come out!

Sylvie April 25, 2010 at 8:12 AM  

I am super excited by this eZine too!
Today we are having a nice sunny and warm spring weather in Northern France, and I am binding a placemat quilt in my garden while my daughters are playing.
Thank you for the giveaway!

Little Miss Shabby April 25, 2010 at 1:34 PM  

Coldish and rainy here--kinda thunderstormy too. A good sewing day. =) I'd love a chance to win what sounds like and amazing publication! =) Thanks for a great giveaway.
