Intrepid thread sponsors in August!

The Intrepid Thread online store is a long time sponsor of this blog -- we love Julie and the crew, and we are proud that she is sponsoring a prize for the August Pets Show again!

I've always loved Julie's fabrics; she has wonderful taste and really knows what is lighting a fire under quilters as new fabrics come out!

I was thrilled to read her about a history buff and the daughter-in-law of a proud WWII vet, I was stoked to see where the name of her shop came from!

The Intrepid is one of the aircraft carriers built in the huge mobilization of manufacturing resources at the beginning of WWII. She was known as the Fighting I, and had an illustrious career spanning many years. Julie's dad served onboard, hence the name of her shop!

Julie has an extensive store, with fabrics, thread, custom bundles, and patterns. You will be drooling at your keyboard (fair warning!) when you browse the store!

Gorgeous Tilda bundles!

Lovely collections by Pat Bravo, Cotton and Steel, Anna Maria Horner, and many more!

The Intrepid Thread is an awesome resource for quilting fabrics, but also has apparel fabrics, voile, and gauze to offer, as well!

The Intrepid Thread crew is sponsoring a prize for this August's Pets Show! A lovely Aurifil thread pack for one lucky winner in our drawings!

Our winner will receive a five pack of full size spools!! And with all of the beautiful colors in the Aurifil line, that will be awesome!

Thanks, Julie! We're proud to have you as a sponsor!

Hope all of you are getting ready for our show!

Barb combines fun applique and piecing, and sometimes uses her Accuquilt as a starting point. 

This year, she will provide two patterns from her shop, and a lovely charm pack of batiks! This is from the Wind and Sea collection, from Island Batiks! Beautiful!

I hope you will check out her store at this link: click here.

Update on Heat Press Batting Together - more prizes!

(PLEASE NOTE: These prizes will be drawn in our August Pets on Quilts show! If you would like to purchase before that, just go to this site and place your order!)

I heard from Jeanne at Heat Press Batting Together, and I just had to share the good news!

The awesome product that she invented and is sponsoring as prizes (in August) is such a time and money saver!

She's still going to provide those two assortment packages that we mentioned, but hold the phone!!

(Yes, Virginia, that is what phones used to look like, back when Snoodles was young and she had to dodge those dinosaurs!)

She's also going to give twelve more winners a roll of product!!  Wowza!

Yep, those twelve lucky winners will receive a roll of 15 yards by 1.5 inch Heat Press Batting Together!!

Thank you for sponsoring our Pet Show, Heat Press team!!

"Heat Press Batting Together" Sponsors!

Remember this post when Kooshie photo-bombed us? (Grin)

This was a review of an awesome product, called "Heat Press Batting Together" and it really is a super way to re-use small pieces of batting. (You can click here to see the whole post and more of the cute pup!)

Yep, I know, you can zigzag two pieces together. But this is quick and simple, and you don't end up with that bumpy spot where you joined the pieces!

It holds together very strongly, too! It even stretches! Wowza!

As you can tell, this is a product that the crew here at the Lilypad truly believes in!

The nice folks at Heat Press Batting Together are sponsoring TWO prize packages for lucky winners in August!

Check out their great products at their site.  

I love this applique tape -- steam it on, and steam it off!

The inventor is a quilter, so she knows that sometimes we need different widths and even different colors!

Be sure to watch this video detailing how to use their product for Quilt As You Go (QAYG) projects!

Thanks so much for sponsoring prizes for our August Pet Show, Heat Press!!
