From Santa... - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

From Santa…

** edit: We’ve got a few questions about the quilt in the photo! It’s a new kit with Martinique fabric you can look forward to on the Coming Soon page… 🙂 **

I saw someone use this quote in her comment, and I made a mental note to use it.

“I’m in love…I’m in love and I dont care who knows it!”

Santa came by for a spell and gave us a little message for all of his faithful writers (you). His handwriting was a little wonky (I’m sure his hand is cramped from writing the names of all those people all around the world) but I was able to transcribe it.

Dearest Fans,

Mrs. Claus and I were so thrilled to see so many of you blogging your letters! I’m an old-fashioned fellow, so I’m glad my little online Jolly Jabber elves helped me sort through all of your blogs and comments! Ho ho ho, it brought me so much laughter and cheer to hear from you, especially those I hadn’t heard from in quite a while! I knew you hadn’t stopped believing!

Here are the lucky gals who will be getting their biggest Christmas wish from Fat Quarter Shop. If I list your name, you’d better e-mail Jocelyn right away to make sure I’ll be shimmying down the right chimney with your gift! Wouldn’t that be embarrassing…the missus wouldn’t ever let me forget.

    1. Thank you so much Santa and Kimberly and all of the Jolly Elves, as my house is full of sick people today finding out I am getting a special gift is a really bright spot!
      Congratulations to all of the winners and thanks to everyone for the fun reads.

    2. Congratulations to all the wonderful winners. And thank you FQS for a truly fun giveaway. The photos of the little ones are a very good consolation prize, thank you. They are so precious!

    3. Congratulations to all the lucky winners. I hope you enjoy your wonderful gifts from the FQS. And to the FQS, it's wonderful to see someone being so generous. Merry Christmas!

      Amy – (who really would have liked to have been lucky too!) lol

    4. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Santa, you're the best!

      Seriously, thank you to everyone at the Fat Quarter Shop! We're not exaggerating when we tell you that your website is a daily stop on our computers. You just never know when there's new stuff to see, or old stuff to rediscover. It's like Christmas year-round!

      — Pookie and Schnookie (aka Eleanor and Liz)

    5. Congrats to the winners… it was a very neat & generous idea! I made a list to Santa and forgot to link up, how silly? Just may have to take matters into my own hands!

    6. I'm flabbergasted! Thanks so much, Santa (and his Jolly elves)! I'll be waiting for you with spiked egg nog and rum balls in hand!

    7. Oh my! Thank you Santa and all his wonderful friends at the FQS! I'm so glad he chose those extra two! 🙂 Congrats to all the winners! And those little elves are just the cutest!!! Merry Christmas!

    8. Thank you so very much!! I'm so excited to win this bundle of fat quarters-they were my 1st choice! THANK YOU, Fat Quarter Shop!

    10. Thank you so so much. I am properly awake now after that magical night when your email came in. Thank you so much for making my Christmas dream come true. I still can't quite believe it.

      Merry Christmas!

    11. Congratulations to all the winners! This was fun waiting with baited breath to see if I had been good enough to get my wish.. I guess I better be a better little girl in 2010. Or maybe it was my sisters fault…Maybe she was the little girl who wasnt so good…hmmmm….Its her fault Santa!!! 🙂

    12. Congratulations to all the winners. They are having a fun Christmas. It was fun to read the letters.
      The children are darling. Merry Christmas.

    13. Wow, What an awesome give away!! You girls are sooooo generous! I wish I would have entered! :0) But I just had to buy what I wanted this morning anyway!! :0)

    14. What cute children! I can see you are very blessed.
      Congratulations to all the winners. Just wishing I had asked Santa for the Windowpane glace kit as well, I see he gave 2 away—WOW–those lucky people!!
      Have a wonderful day and a very Merry Christmas day.
      P.S. I am so impressed with how generous you are!! Way to go!!

    15. Congratulations to all the winners, and thank you Fatquartershop for this great contest. To everyone "Prettige kerstdagen en gelukkig Nieuwjaar!"

    16. My Santa gift arrived yesterday IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS and it is under the tree now! What FABULOUS timing!!! What is even more amazing is that the address was correct but the last name wasn't even close to mine….so I'm grateful the mail carrier still got it here for me. THANKS for this great gift!!!

    17. Congratulations to all the lucky winners….I probably should have tried bribing Santa with cookies rather than dressing up for him…lol
      Hugs Khris

    18. Thank you so much for granting my wish! The timing was perfect too, it arrived Christmas Eve and went right under the tree as soon as I stopped running around the house yelling like the dad in the Christmas Story movie (I won! I won! It's a major prize!)
