Fall Quilt Market 2014: Giveaway Winners!

Hello everyone! It's so great to be back at the FQS headquarters, and now that Quilt Market is over, we are announcing our giveaway winners. Our theme for this Market is "Back to School," so we took you back to the classroom and asked some fun "school" questions. 

For the first giveaway, we took you back to English class, with a word scramble! For this quiz, we are giving away 2 surprise gifts from Sample Spree. 

The correct answer is... Stripset! 
Congratulations to Rachel and Kell for guessing correctly!

During Schoolhouse, we tested your estimation skills by asking you to guess how many fat quarter bundles are in this Moda Fabrics bag. The two lucky winners for this giveaway will win an Ambleside by Brenda Riddle Fat Quarter Bundle and a Whitewashed Cottage by 3 Sisters Fat Quarter Bundle. 
The correct answer is... 11 fat quarter bundles! 
Congratulations to Patchlys-Marina and Kendra Watson.

On Saturday, we brought you back to music class and asked if Quilt Market had a theme song what would it be? The winners for this giveaway will win an Aloha Girl by Fig Tree Quilts Fat Quarter Bundle and a Daysail by Bonnie & Camille Fat Quarter Bundle. We received some great answers and we chose two songs that reflect how the Fat Quarter Shop team feels when we're at Market. Those songs are Happy by Pharrell Williams and Flight of the Bumblebee by Rimsky-Korsakov. Here is Pharrell's Happy song that we all love!



Congratulations to Janarama and Jenelle for picking these songs for us! 


For Sunday's, it was time for Math class and some number crunching. We asked you to guesstimate the number of steps Kimberly took on average at Quilt Market per day. We kept count on our handy dandy Fitbit to get our results. The winners will receive Simply Fat Quarters, Fat Quarter Style, and Quilted Living as their prize. 

The answer is... 12,455 steps on average, that's over 6 miles a day! 
Congratulations to Karen,  Kathy , and June for guessing closest to our answer.


Our last giveaway is something that we consider one of the BEST memorabilia from Market, our yearbook quilt block. We asked your favorite quilting celebrities and designers to sign our one-of-a-kind block. Our quilter extraordinaire, Debbie, is currently sewing the block as a pillowcase for the lucky winner. 

And the winner is Lori Harman! 

Congratulations to all of the winners,and you have all been emailed. Don't forget that Kimberly and the FQS team will be at Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas on Saturday November 1st, for book signings. We would love to see you there!

Congrats to the winners.
Kimberly is wearing a Jawbone UP, not a Fitbit. Two completely different products and companies.
