It's Giveaway Time - Parson Gray's Curious Nature!

Hey all! So it's that time again - we've got another giveaway from the fabulous Fat Quarter Shop! This time around we've teamed up to giveaway Parson Gray's Designer Select Fat Quarter Bundle which is a fabulous mix of twelve prints from the debut line - Curious Nature - and three coordinating Free Spirit Designer Solids (Espresso, Cream, and Manatee).


So who is this "Parson Gray" you might ask? Well, his real name is David Butler and he just so happens to be the husband of the oh-so-fabulous Amy Butler! I've met Amy a couple of times at Quilt Market, and even though I'm sure he was running around somewhere, I haven't had the chance to meet David - although, if all of his lines are as stunning and versatile as this one I am sure that I will meet him at a Quilt Market in the future!



Feel free to watch this awesome interview with David in his Curious Nature booth from this past Quilt Market and you can find the quilt pattern that he shows and talks about as a free download on the Free Spirit site. By the way, I totally agree with John when he was doing his Hey Girl tweets and said "Hey girl, I'm as excited as u are that Amy Butler's husband is designing fabric now too. And you're right: that is one ruggedly handsome man." Yup, ruggedly handsome...anywho...

Okay, so I guess you want to know how to enter, right? You have two chances but please be sure to leave separate comments for each entry. Here's what you've got to do:

1. Leave a comment letting my know which item (fabric, pattern, bundle, etc)
is your favourite from FQS' Newest Additions page.

2. Leave another comment if you are a follower of my blog.

That's it! Two easy-peasy ways to enter! I will close the comments in a week (on the 17th) and announce the winner here on the blog. International entries are, as always, welcome! Also, please remember that I have comment moderation enabled so if you don't see your comment right away it just means that I haven't had the chance to approve it yet (duplicate comments will be deleted). 

Man guys, I'm super-jealous of whoever wins this - I would love to get my hands on some of this fabric to make a quilt for Alex! Good luck everyone - you're all winners in my mind *wink*!

*the giveaway is now closed*
