The BLOCKS will be judged by Julia Rothman.
She will pick a winner, and...



The winner will get a FQ bundle of CLOUD 9's

  23. Can't pass up a chance for free fabric and to donate to basics! Although since there is a lottery, you can be sure I won't win! I have never won a lottery or raffle in any of the three guilds I belong to here in the city!

    LOL. But there can always be a first!

  38. I would love a chance to play along. I'm a huge Cloud 9 fan and it all started at CHA in California the year I opened my paper arts store. Cloud 9 was a brand new vendor and I ordered a lot of your product for my store. I always loved your paper lines, and now I love your fabric lines. I would love to be a part of this wonderful challenge.
