Good News

I've been buying fabric, thread and books for years from Connecting Threads.   I've posted quilts I made from their Jelly Rolls and Charm Squares.  Here's some of the quilts.




This quilt was made using charm squares.


I used charms and jelly rolls from the same line for this quilt.



This is another Jelly Roll quilt.




This was made for a friend in Texas for Christmas.  Another Jelly Roll Quilt.


Well I contacted Connecting Threads and asked if they would sponsor a giveaway.  Details are at the bottom of this post.


They have got some fabulous new fabric lines.  Here are just a few.  Take a look.



This is Maison de Provence




This is Luminescence    I love the Purple and Turquoise together.





And my favorite is Red by Alex Anderson.  I can already see a quilt in my future using this fabric.


Connecting Threads is sponsoring a giveaway of a Charm Pack of your choice to three of my readers.  It is open to US and Canadian followers.  To enter click on the Connecting Threads logo at the top right of my blog, browse their pre-cuts.  Let me know you visited them for a chance to win.  Be a follower and get a second chance.  Blog about the giveaway for a third chance.  I will pick the winners on Saturday, March 7th.  Be sure I have some way to get in touch with you.  So that gives you 3 chances to win.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you are keeping warm and keeping busy.

Hugs, Cathy

PS:  Have received a couple of noreply comments.  Please be sure to leave an email address so I have some way of contacting you.  If you comment using Google+ I can not contact you.  Please leave an email address in your comment.

Giveaway is now closed.

I have Luminescence in my cart on Connecting Threads website, along with 5 other charm packs and some yardage. I love CT fabrics they also have fantastic customer service and spend $50 and you get free shipping. ;-> Toni Anne

Hi Cathy,
I, too, love Connecting Threads and have been a customer for a long, long time. My favorite sampler would be the color wheel sampler of their Candy basics fabric. As always, I love the quilts you have shown. I am a follower.

I've never ordered from Connecting Threads. If I could choose a charm pack it would probably be the Warm Batiks.
Thanks for the giveaway, Cathy!
