BOM Mini-series Part 1: Pennsylvania Dutch

** This giveaway is closed! Thanks for playing! **

Happy Monday!...well, aside from those Monday blahs, right?

Hopefully what we've got planned will lift those blahs at least a little. Over the next two weeks, we'll be doing a Fat Quarter Shop Block of the Month Mini-series, highlighting 6 of our Block of the Months that will start between October and January. And each Block of the Month Mini-series will have a nice little prize, too.

Today is BOM Mini-series Pt. 1 - Pennsylvania Dutch BOM...
Back in July we posted about this little beauty.


Pennsylvania Dutch is a 12-month sampler quilt that really speaks to our hearts in the color and art. Betcha didn't know that Kevin pitched in on this one. Yes, in fact, he helped a very pregnant Kimberly select and lay out the pieced border.

We chose Wiscasset by Minick & Simpson because the gorgeous antiqued blues, reds, golds and creams just melded with the pattern by Legacy Patterns, that theme of home tucked into the country. Pennsylvania Dutch starts in November -- we can't wait :)


I mentioned a prize, right?

For Pennsylvania Dutch, we're giving away a Wiscasset Charming Jelly Cake (a Jelly Roll + Layer Cake + Charm Pack).

Here's how to win:

1) Post a comment - get 1 entry

2) Mention this BOM on your blog & link back to this entry (http://fatquartershop.blogspot.com/2009/08/bom-mini-series-part-1-pennsylvania.html) or to the Pennsylvania Dutch page (http://www.fatquartershop.com/Pennsylvania-Dutch-Block-of-the-Month.asp) - get 3 entries

3) Sign up for this BOM, or if you have already signed up, tell us in your comment - get 5 entries

We'll announce the winner in 2 weeks. Thanks & good luck!!

Love those colors - would be perfect for a project so close to Labor Day!

Jean said...

I've only participated in one block of the month so far (well, I'm on the eighth month), and I am having fun with it. This one looks like one I'd enjoy too. Great colors and pattern.

Ruth B said...

If the other fabrics are as lucsious as the top fabric on that layer cake that will be a delish cake!! I love that you are highlighting your BOMs. We'll get to see them close up and be tempted by every one.

kd4h said...

Okay--I had convinced myself I didn't need to do a BOM right now. I couldn't commit to it and I didn't want it to pile up here at the house, but after seeing your pictures of it, and seeing the Minick and Simpson fabrics (LOVE THEM!!!), how could I resist. So now I am crossing my fingers and hoping you pick me. 'Cause if I won a chance to do it, I just couldn't say no, right?
