More for Me Monday | Betty Dear


Has everyone recovered from their eggnog hangovers yet? Well, we here at Fat Quarterly have been thinking about all of our readers who may not have gotten everything on their wish list from the fat guy with the beard, so we'd like to soften the blow with a More for Me Monday giveaway sponsored by Robert Kaufman fabrics.

This week, we're offering up a full 18-piece fat quarter bundle of Betty Dear, the new line by Darlene Zimmerman. Betty Dear features a chic take on 40's housedress prints, perfect for starting a new spring quilt for yourself.

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post. Just for fun, let us know your favorite thing that you either gave or received this holiday season. We'll let the random number generator select one winner sometime on or after next Monday, 1/3/2011.

Good luck!

  1. Those fabrics are beautiful!

    This year I managed to surprise my husband with a new xbox to replace the one that died ... and he treated me well in return with a promised design wall for my office!

  3. Yay, a giveaway!

    This year I got a brand new bike. Too bad we got snowed in on the east coast.

    I'm going to treat myself to some fabrics after New Year's.

  4. My favorite thing I received was what my sneaky husband gave me. I am a new quilter so my stash is quite small still and my space not yet organized , he got me a very modern and sleek shelving unit that covers a whole wall and he went to every quilt shop we have in my city and bought every fat quarter that he liked in the store ( about 20-30 per store) and organized them by color on the shelves before surprising me! He is the best!

  5. Thanks for a great giveaway! My favorite gift this year was one my husband & I gave our son... a Thomas the Train wooden railway set. He's in love! Plus, we figured out very quickly that it's not just a train set, it's leverage! He is more eager to do things we ask him to when his trains are on the line :)

  6. My quilting friend gave me a hardback photo book that she'd had made with photos of lots of my projects and cakes that I've made over many years. I just love it - it's such a great idea and all the photos are just stunning the way she laid them all out!

  13. My favorite gift this year was to my dad, I took some of his old T-shirts from the classic car shows that he goes to all year, and made them into a quilt for him. He knew about the quilt, but it was still fun to have him open it up and see his face.

  76. having spent two and a half years living in the USA (I'm an aussie, and have now returned home), one of my favourite parts of christmas while I was there, was the eggnog the Amish farmers used to bring to the Saturday markets near where we lived. It's not a tradition here in Oz, and something I miss dearly!
    The favourite thing I gave this year, was actually to a friend we made while living in the USA, one with whom we remain in frequent contact, and the nicest part of this gift - a 'care' box full of chocolates, and australian licorice and other delicacies - was the fact that we don't usually exchange pressies, so this was out of the blue, and completely 'just because'. Because if you can't give a gift at christmas 'just because', then when can you?!

    ReplyDelete

  192. This line is so pretty! Bright and happy - just what we need :)

    Favorite gift was a Christmas vacation we took this year instead of giving presents. We moved cross country this summer and have always wanted to see the mountains of the West - and we did!! It was gorgeous and we created unbelievable memories. I liked this so much better than opening gifts!!

  194. This Christmas my husband blessed me with a lovely new state of the art serger. My one and only other serger was purchased in May 1993 and was groaning!! LOL

    LOVE those Kaufman fabrics ... I have just the project in mind if I was the lucky winner!

    ReplyDelete
  195. The fabrics are amazing, I know just what I'd do with them if I won them!

    The gift I am the most excited about giving this year was a handwoven scarf to my mother. I taught myself to weave this year and made one especially for her on my rigid heddle loom. She loved it and it will keep her warm during the year to come throughout all of her cancer treatments.

  197. The gift I was most excited to give was a set of paper dolls that my grandma drew when she was a young woman - I scanned them and printed them out and then laminated them to magnetic backing and cut them out painstakingly - there are 18 in the set and I managed to get one finished for my sister and one for my mom. I still have 2 sets waiting to be cut (one for me of course!)
