I am a Pirate - look at this bounty!

Out Now!

Issue 5 of Fat Quarterly is out today! Subscribers already have their copies, but if you don't have a subscription head on over to the website and buy it right now!

Then head back here and tell me. Ok? Because if you tell me you have your copy of issue 5 (or if you subscribe already) you get an extra chance in the giveaway.

Giveaway? What giveaway?

Ohhhhh....let me tell you.

The super awesome folks at Robert Kaufman send me a gifty this week (after they'd heard me muttering on twitter about how I really wanted a Bounty of Basics box and was procrastinating about shipping costs).
They sent me not one but TWO boxes of bounty (say that in a Pirate voice, arrrrr)!

boxes of bounty!

Loooook at all those beautiful fat quarters of solids. I could just leave them as is and never use them. I could just stroke them forever. I even tried to convince the husbeast to hang them on the wall as art. He told me I needed to see someone.

So instead, I shall cut them up and make quilts. Plural. There's 200 fat quarters there. I'm thinking I could use 20 to make another fit for a princess quilt. I also really really want to make the book worm quilt from this issue of Fat Quarterly. As well as a plain spoken quilt by Bill Kerr/Weeks Ringle (which has been on my 'list' for a long time). What else? String quilt in solids. That would be amazing. So many to choose from.

rainbows

But in the nature in which they were given to me, I shall share. Just leave a comment on this post (leave a second comment if you follow me, leave a third if you're a fat quarterly subscriber/have bought issue 5). That's up to three chances to win a stack of 25 fat quarters. And I'll let you choose which stack you like, so no chance of getting colours you hate. What's more - anyone can enter, anywhere in the world. Just make sure you have your comment linked to an email address/leave an email address so I can contact you.
PLUS 2 runners up will share a stack - so 12 FQs each (of my choosing - I'll pick good ones!)

Does that make sense? Let's go over it again -

- one winner will get a 25 FQ stack of their choice (from the picture above - pick a section)
- 2 winners will get 12 FQs each
- anyone is welcome, anywhere int he whole wide world

Leave a comment, plus another if you follow me, and an extra comment if you are a subscriber to Fat Quarterly/have bought Issue 5.

I'll leave the giveaway open until Monday 2nd May.
