Six fat-Quarters shown below -- enough to do a mini-wall hanging, a quilted bag or embellish a vest. Value $15. ( I am piecing a quilt out of these companion fabrics. Great hand, gorgeous colors and snazzy patterns! I think you'll love this combination, too!)

Snap Happy II Pattern for a cute little bag that snaps closed by using part of a carpenter's metal measuring tape. No raw seams, and has an inside pocket and a boxed bottom. Whip several up with the combination of brights (1 each fat quarter in orange and an orange/blue polka dots) or traditionals (1 each fat quarter prints in green, larger multiprint, burgundy, gold and navy) as shown below! Value: $25.

11th Edition 2010-2012 Quilters' Travel Companion ($19.95 value) 2 yards each pink flannel (one polka dots, one animal print); 2 yards each Halloween Prints (candy corn & Boo!); 3 fabric-covered book marks ($12.50 value); Summer Song mix 'n' match fat 1/8ths (pinks, oranges & bright greens). Total Value $125.

And just HOW to do you get Genea-Quilter's name badge? Visit Fairfax Genealogical Society's booth #613 on the side wall in the Exhibit Hall, buy some raffle tickets, and get the tag to attach to your conference badge. Otherwise, I'll also have a few to hand out as I see you at the APG-PMC and other events during the week.

You need NOT be present to win, but you must claim your prize by 3pm on Saturday 21 August 2010 at the Fairfax Genealogical Society Booth #613 as noted above.
