Welcome to another Fun Friday.
Today I want to share with you some of the reasons I enjoy my subscription to The Quilt Show. I also want to share that they were kind enough for me to share photos with you in this post today.
Here are a few insights on The Quilt Show (TQS):
The Quilt Show is a virtual based magazine plus more. They share insights on a blog, that is available to everyone (even if you don't subscribe to TQS). Like a magazine, they have a video show that shares insights on various quilters, tips and more. They also have online courses, free patterns and more. And, like a magazine, when you subscribe you'll always be able to access shows that were released during your subscription. You can watch them at your liesure when ever you want and as many times as you want.
Here are a few more things about TQS that you may not be aware of:
Sarah Vedeler is the quilt design and machine embroidery designs for her beautiful Sedona Star quilt, through a current block of the month program available for free to the Quilt Show members.
I'm definitely looking forward to an upcoming video episode, to be released November 5th "Episode 1110 – Come to the "Strip Club"... Rated G! (Daniela Stout)"
There are so many wonderful episodes on the Quilt Show that it is impossible to pick my favorites, but I'd definitely encourage everyone to watch:
Episode 901 – State-of-the-Art Quilting: Tradition Meets Innovation (Susan Brubaker Knapp)
Episode 611 – Applique the Piece O' Cake Way (Becky Goldsmith)
The TQS Blog is free to everyone and shares great tips and inspiration. One of my recent favorites was a spectacular Star of Valor quilt made by Sherry Reynolds.
Isn't this QOV quilt spectacular? I love it and love it even more knowing it is a QOV quilt. Truly an inspirational quilt and another great example of why I love The Quilt Show.
Did I Mention A Giveaway?
When I renewed my subscription to The Quilt Show I was given a six month gift certificate to give to a friend. I decided the best way to give it away is by using it as a prize on a Fun Friday Giveaway.
To enter to win, public followers simply need to leave a comment on this post. You can still follow via RSS/Email feeds, but also be a public follower through your Google profile. If you are not sure what a public follower is, or if your settings are correct, please click here to read a prior post on public followers.
And, if you don't want to be a public follower they'll be plenty of other giveaways and contests where you can win prizes and need not be a public follower. This particular giveaway is just meant to thank those that care enough to be a public follower!
This giveaway is open to public followers that live any place in the world. One winner will be randomly selected and announced next Friday. They will be given a code that they can redeem for a free six month membership to The Quilt Show (or add six months to their existing membership).
I'm also delighted to announce the winners of the Fun Friday Giveaway, from last week, sponsored by Island Batik and Cherry Blossoms Quilting Studio. Congratulations to:
- Joanne Lendaro (Splitting Stitches) is the winner of the Feather Fancy bundle

An email will be sent to the winners today. They need to send an email confirmation they want to claim their prize within 3 days, or another winner will be randomly selected.
