Winner: Fall Giveaway! - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Winner: Fall Giveaway!

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:
Autumn Hayride 
 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!


  1. 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….

  2. 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!


  3. 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!!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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!!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!!
