Fat Quarter Shop

The Fat Quarter Shop was founded in 2003 by Kimberly Jolly. An avid quilter, Kimberly began her shop as a side business while still working a corporate position, cutting, packing and shipping right out of her house during evenings and weekends. From the very beginning, she was committed to delivering top-notch service for every single order and customer. As the Fat Quarter Shop’s reputation grew, Kimberly decided to make it a full-time operation. Her husband Kevin joined her not long after, and with his help, lots of hard work, and a tireless commitment, the store began to grow. Over the past few years a few more people have joined the staff!
As a team, we continue to branch out with the best fabrics, exclusive kits, quilt clubs, BOMs, and more. And we will always be driven by the passion that Kimberly founded the store upon, which is always giving you the best products and service!

How You Can Win!
I’m going to be honest, winning a prize is not going to be a pushover, there will be some work involved. The number of people eligible for the majority of the prizes might actually be smaller than you think… are you taking that as a silent challenge?!? For a majority of the prizes you’re going to have to make the 100 blocks and post them on the correct 100 days. However, because we’re not completely crazy there will be a few prizes along the way that we’ll put up for grabs for those that sew and post on the correct days a certain group of 10 blocks.
Minimum eligibility requirements:
To be eligible for any prize you must post a photo of the block on the day that the block is due (in your timezone) and hashtag it with #100days100blocks. You must also be following @gnomeangel, @sweetlittlepretties and @sunflowerquilting on Instagram.
Each prize will also come with it’s own requirements so be sure to pay attention to the details that are provided throughout the event.
If you’re following our Instagram accounts you’ll get all the information you need to keep up-to-date with the giveaways. You won’t need to go anywhere else for the information, it’ll all be on Instagram. But, because we know that people like to have a point of reference you’ll be able to come back here at any time and read up on what’s happening. All the information can be found under #100Days100Blocks in the menu at the top of this page.
