Last week, in the spirit of Fall, we had a little poetry contest, giving you a chance to win one of three gift certificates for Fat Quarter Shop! We read all your poems and let me just say, who knew quilters were such poets?! It was a blast seeing all the responses and reading everything you wrote; funny rhymes, haikus, and even odes to your favorite sweater. Thanks to everyone who participated, we had a lot of fun!
And now, without further ado, our randomly selected winners are…
The winner of a $200 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop is:
Fall is near,
You are such a dear,
I will make you a quilt,
For the house we have built.
The winner of a $150 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop is:
The wagon was filled to the hilt
With children wearing pants, dresses and even a kilt,
They all sat in the middle so the wagon wouldn’t tilt
And to keep warm stayed under the quilt
The winner of a $100 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop is:
Oh boy rhyming is not my thing…
Oh the money I have spent
Created so much guilt
But if I win
No guilt, just quilt!
Wow that is bad but it rhymes.
Congratulations to our 3 lucky poets! Look for your gift certificates in your email inbox soon! And thanks again to everyone who participated, your poems were great! Happy Fall and happy Friday everyone!
I thought you were going to pick based on creativity – not just random draw. I think many others thought so too or they may not have spent time trying to come up with something fun & creative. A sign of the times I guess….
Congrats to the very lucky winners….
I thought it was based on creativity too! I spent a lot of time trying to be creative. Oh well next time I'll know.
Congrats to the lucky winners!
Congrats to the winners!
For what it's worth, I think you were absolutely right to choose randomly. If it had been subjectively based on 'merit' everyone would have been arguing about that too!!
Did not mean to "argue". I just misinterpreted the game just like the other poster did.
The Fat Quarter Shop is the best and very generous with their prizes and give aways. Congrats to all.
I loved the exercise for my stagnant prose part of my brain, thanks for the joy of getting it started up again!
Congratulations to those who won
I think we really all had fun.
Well done ladies, especially my super friend Rhonda xx
congrats to the winners!
Quilting by the River

I really enjoyed this giveaway! Congrats to the lucky ladies!
Wow congratulations to the winners!
That was FUN! Congrats to the winners! I knew, as long as it was randomly picked, I might have a chance!!!!! May we rhyme for Winter, too??? Pretty please!!
While I definitely am happy for the winners…I too thought that you were choosing based on the poetry….but I still love fall best of all!
Congrats Rhonda! =) Nice to see your name up…have fun shopping.
Thank you Kimberly. I was laughing when I submitted my little poem, and thought I didn't have a chance. Glad it was random. And I appreciate everything you do for all the quilters out here. You are extremely generous with all the giveaways you host and sponsor.
Shopping done, GC spent, plus some.
I had to laugh hysterically when I seen my name because I thought oh no, others are going to see how badly I rhyme!! BUT it is worth it. I love your shop! Thanks so very much. Can't wait to shop!!
Wow Kimberley, you and everyone at fat quarter shop are so generous, you are my favorite ♥
