Welcome back to our celebration of Sewing Month 2016!
We hope you’ve been having fun with our weekly inspiration and giveaways. There are so many video gems in our FQS vault (also known as our YouTube Channel) that we’re sharing some more inspirational how-to’s based on a theme. This week? Applique! We’ve also got a fantastic giveaway, and two people will each win a prize package valued at over $80, which includes the thread-y goodness show below – yum!
We know, we know – some quilters consider applique the “A word”. Here at Fat Quarter Shop we think applique gets a bad rap, so we’ve gathered some FQS videos that will help you develop new applique skills or further develop those you may already have. Take a peek!
To enter: Leave a comment on this blog post sharing whether you currently use applique in your quilting and sewing, or if you have yet to take on this sewing technique. Giveaway ends on 9/26/16 at 8 AM CST. The two winners will be chosen at random and announced in an update on this post by 9/28/16, and will be emailed about their prizes. Good luck and Happy Quilting!
Update: Giveaway is closed! Congratulations to GranChris and Jinger! Both winners have been contacted.

UPDATE: GIVEAWAY WINNERS
Congratulations to our three winners: Karin, Carla, and Kelly Grace! These winners have been emailed regarding their prizes.
Classic & Heirloom Quilts, Betsy Chutchian’s first book with It’s Sew Emma, combines 1800’s inspiration with current sensibilities for eight opulent quilts. Each quilt offers three size options of mini, lap and queen, and some can be made from modern-day precuts!
It’s Sew Emma has a brand new book you’re going to love! It’s called the Jolly Bar Book – Vol. 1, and it includes our first 20 Jolly Bar patterns, all compiled in one place for the first time ever!
In case you’re wondering what a Jolly Bar is, it’s a precut exclusive to Fat Quarter Shop! Jolly Bars measure 5″ x 10″, and are great for making fabulous quilts quickly and easily.
The majority of the 20 patterns in this fun new book can be made with a single Jolly Bar, which is sew fun and is such a great way to try out a variety of patterns!
Our Jolly Bars and this new book make quilting easier than ever!
Step 1. Order a copy of the Jolly Bar Book – Vol. 1 Step 2. Order your favorite Jolly Bar (Or two, or six) Step 3. Pick one of the patterns in the book (Ooh, so hard to choose!) Step 4. Start working on your Jolly Bar quilt – you’ll be finished before you know it!
