Here's the long awaited announcement...

Fat Quarter Shop Bella Parade!!!



Duration : 1st May 2011 to 31 May 2011
FQS Bella Parade Flickr Group

RSVP : Join the Flickr Group

Prizes : One Yard of Bella Solids EVERY DAY!!!
Weekly Prizes : A Bella Parade Fat Quarter Bundle from Fat Quarter Shop!!!
Grand Prize : A Bella Parade Half Yard Bundle from Fat Quarter Shop
plus the fabulous Quilt made by Bryanna for the Quilt Along! Yeah, we're having a quiltalong too!!!


So whats the plan???

How do you usually buy solids? You buy some print and you buy some solids to go with it, isn't it?

Time to understand all you can about solids - and not just any solids, the super soft, lovely - Bella Solids!

Every day between 1st May to 31st we will feature a color of the day on 13 Woodhouse Road. The color will also be uploaded in the Flickr pool. We will be sharing loads of information about that color - Its name, meaning of the name, technical aspects, psychological effects, complimentary colors etc... We will also have people chosen from amongst you pick complimentary prints for the color...

The fun just begins here...
Once I upload the solid color in the Flickr pool, you guys have exactly 48 hours to click snaps from around you which contain that particular solid!

Eg if I have uploaded Bella Solids Summer House


You can upload snaps like these...


or this


The only condition is that the photograph must contain the said color!

Remember, the photographs must be clicked by you and not downloaded from the internet. Anyone breaking this rule will be banned from the group.

The person who uploads the most number of relevant photographs wins One Yard of fabric of that color from Fat Quarter Shop.

I and Susan will go through all the photographs before awarding the prize!

31 opportunities!!!! And there's more...

We will also be having a weekly giveaway for all the members. (yup this is a privileged group!)
Every week, one lucky winner (you have to have uploaded at least one relevant photograph in the said week to qualify) will win a Fat Quarter Bundle of all the 31 Colors!

And it does not end here...
In the end, the person who has submitted the largest number of relevant photographs to the pool will win a Bella Parade Half Yard Bundle with all the featured 31 prints from Fat Quarter Shop! The same person will also win the Mini Quilt made by Bryanna fro the Quilt Along!

I'll tell you the details of the quilt along tomorrow, including how much fabric you need.

Till then, here's another chance... We're having a launch giveaway!
We will draw the winners on the 1st May.
You can win a Bella Parade Fat Quarter Bundle from Fat Quarter Shop!!!
