Welcome ChristaQuilts and a Giveaway

 A huge welcome to ChristaQuilts, my newest sponsor!!  ChristaQuilts specializes in an eclectic mix of fresh, modern and fun fabrics. Christa started off making traditional quilts, but over the last year has had her focus on modern quilting. 



Her Charming Chevrons quilt, a fabulous example of her modern quilting love, was recently seen hanging at QuiltCon.  Christa has even developed a Charming Chevron's Quilt-A-Long tutorial on her blog so you can make one too!!  Christa is always hosting amazing Quilt-A-Longs at her blog with fantastic instructions that even explain her stunning quilting!! Charming Chevron's is made completely from Kona Cotton Solids which is one of her shops specialties. Right now she stocks around 100 of the Kona Solids and has big plans to carry them all.  In fact, she loves them so much she is giving some of them away.  (More on that at the end of the post :)  


ChristaQuilts is a wonderful shop that has excellent customer service.  They offer Free Shipping on all orders in the US, and she gives a 20% discount off current USPS shipping rates for international orders.  With the rising cost of postal rates that is a huge saver!!  And who wouldn't want to save on a little of this??  Can I just say how much I love Pearl Bracelets!!




And if she didn't have you at the shipping, she is bound to get you excited about her daily deals, weekly specials bargain bin,  and free "Christa Candy", with every order of $25.00 or more.  I love me a little  bargain on fabrics like these.


And as part of ChristaQuilts intoduction, she is offering another discount to all Happy Quilting blog readers.  By using the coupon code B13HQM you will receive an additional 5% off your next order.  And it has another bonus.  Once you have used the code, you will automatically continue to receive that discount on all of your future orders!!  Yippee Skippee!!  So pop on over to her store and check out what you would like to save an extra 5% on. 






Now, remember that Giveaway I mentioned.  I am sure you do.  One lucky blog reader will win a bundle of 8 Kona fat quarters of their choice.  Can you imagine how fun it would be to pick 8 favorites, I know I wish I could!!



You have two chances to win, please leave a separate comment for each.  

1 - Visit ChristaQuilts and leave a comment of your favorite Kona color she stocks, or if you don't see your favorite color, leave a comment of the color you wish she had.

2 - Subscribe to ChristaQuilts blog and leave a comment that you did so.  Trust me, you are going to love visiting her blog daily.  She is always posting amazing projects and tutorials!

And that's it :) The giveaway will close on Saturday Mar 16th and I will announce a winner shortly after.     Have a Happy Quilting Day!!!
