Spring Quilt Market 2014: Giveaway Winners

Now that Quilt Market is over, we are finally announcing the giveaway winners from our first ever Caption This! Contest series. For a quick recap on how the contest worked, everyday, we posted a photo and you had to create a creative caption for the image. We received a tremendous amount of creative caption entries that we loved!

Our first image was none other that John Adams, the Quilt Dad himself. The two lucky winners of this first giveaway will win a Fancy Fat Quarter Bundle by Lily Ashbury or a Rue Indienne Bundle by French General.

And now, for the winning captions!

For this second image, we're giving away Moda bundles of Miss Kate Flannels by Bonnie & Camille and Persimmon by BasicGrey.

We're so glad to be home today! After a weekend of new quilting finds, collections, patterns, books and much more, Kimberly has gathered her favorite finds from Spring Quilt Market. We're also going to show photos of all the staff's favorite collections. So get ready for some inspiration to get your creative juices flowing and check out this year's Favorite Finds video!

Kimberly adores this Blossom Mini pattern from Fig Tree and Co. (yes, we'll have it); it's in Joanna's new fabric, Somerset.
 Codi is getting back to nature with her pick, Joel Dewberry's Birch Farm. She can't resist its rustic charm and modern prints.
Jocelyn chose the sweet, whimsical yet sophisticated Brambleberries collection by Violet Craft for Michael Miller Fabrics.

Cheryl's always been a "true blue" fan, and Lexington by Minick & Simpson fits the bill perfeectly!
Kevin's top pick is 3 Sister's Atelier. The addition of aubergine to the classic red, aqua and cream palette is stunning.
Sarah loves the new BasicGrey line Persimmon. It's a fantastic combination of striking colors and delicate prints.
Daniar fell in love with April Rhodes' modern Native American prints from the Arizona line for Art Gallery Fabrics.
Debbie loves the classic combination of red and white, no wonder Gerri Robinson's collection With All My Heart is her pick.

Last but not least, Kimberly's top 10 Favorite Finds video from this year's Spring 2014 Quilt Market!

Be on the lookout for upcoming new fabrics, book, and patterns coming up in the Fat Quarter Shop. We'll be adding them as fast as we can to our Coming Soon page.
