Somerset Thread Box Contest with Fat Quarter Shop

Hi everyone! We have exciting news for you!  We have teamed up with Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree & Co. to create a contest for you and, best of all, YOU get to choose the winners! This contest uses the Somerset Thread Box by Fig Tree & Co. for Aurifil! This cute box includes seven threads, one mini charm and a free spool pattern. 

Kimberly and Joanna of Fig Tree & Co. at Spring Quilt Market

How do I enter?
First, purchase the Somerset Thread box from Fat Quarter Shop (you must purchase from us to enter).  Then use the mini charm pack and Aurifil thread to sew an original quilt project. The project must be an original you have designed, and you cannot use the free pattern in the box to enter.

How do I submit my quilt?

You can submit a photo of your finished project to Or, post your quilts on Social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Google+) with #fqssomerset and tag us @fatquartershop by November 30, 2014. Please include "Somerset Thread Box Contest" as the subject line of the email. From the email and social media submissions, we will pick the top ten submissions for YOU to vote on! 

What's the prize? 
The top 3 winners will receive a $100 Fat Quarter Shop gift certificate! 

And, Fig Tree & Co. is hosting their own thread box contest as well on their blog, so you'll have double the chances to win. Watch Joanna’s video to learn more about the thread box.

So what are you waiting for? Pick up your Somerset Thread Box today at Fat Quarter Shop and get sewing

This sounds like a wonderful contest.
I do not have time to enter such a contest right now as I am taking care of my 91 year old parents. I am really looking forward to seeing all of the creative results of this
Thanks for offering this challenge said...

So... even though I have preordered this thread pack from Fig Tree directly ... if I order another thread pack from FQS I can submit the same original design to both of you?

@Seamscrazyquilts yes you can!

Can I also use another fabric for the background or are we only allowed to use the 42 squares and nothing more?

@Judy, you can use another fabric in the background!
