Yellow yarn Fabric...and a give~away for you!

Quilting, fabric hoarding, and crafting has introduced me to the nicest people and the most unique shops. I have spent hundreds of hours online looking at sewing and quilting blogs, online shops, and Etsy boutiques. Etsy can be a tough space to navigate because of the variety of prices and policies, but it allows me to find the fabrics I cannot get at in-person big-box craft stores. Because when starting a new quilt, you often need 12-20 different prints of fabrics, bundles are the way to go. Before, starting a quilt involved ordering yardage of each print you wanted or hunting down the right fat quarters of fabric. Chelsey of Yellow Yarn fabrics pre-packages bundles from fabric lines so that all you have to do is order one thing and you are ready! I met Chelsey a few weeks ago and showed her the quilt I wanted to begin and she knew instantly what fabrics would be perfect! The fabric line was from the designer Amy Butler, whom I adore and I love the fabrics that Chelsey suggested. They arrived just a couple of days later all wrapped up with a cute, yellow yarn bow. 
Let me introduce you to Chelsey. Chelsey lives in Indianapolis with her husband, her daughter, and another daughter on the way. She is the resident stage manager at the Phoenix Theatre and sells fabric bundles in her free time. Visit her shop Yellow Yarn Fabrics on Etsy!
Don't you want a field trip to her studio? I'd like one of each of these bundles. 
Visit her shop to grab a bundle... message her on Etsy and show her what project you want to start and she will give you some great suggestions! 

Look at how cute the fabric arrives! I love that it came with the designer's name and collection line...when you order a lot of fabric, this comes in handy.
I can't wait to get my quilt top cut and ready to piece!!!

Look at these yummy fabrics! Won't this be a beautiful quilt? 

Besides her eye for fabric, Chelsey is also very generous. Not only did she send me a bundle of fabric, she sent one for you! 
Your bundle consists of 15 fat quarters and 3/4 yd of fabric for your binding. 
Look at these Spring-perfect fabrics!!! They are soft to the touch and vivid colors; its rainy and cloudy so my lighting does not do the fabric justice. 
Want to make the same quilt I am making with these? 
I am even going to toss in your own quilt pattern so you can make one too!

To enter, comment below with what from Chelsey's shop you'd love to order. 
I'll pick a winner on Wednesday evening and get these out on Thursday morning to that lucky~duck.
Good luck!

Do I have to pick just one?!? I want a bunch but top choice would be the shabby chic. I love the blue and purple bundle!

Oooooh you're making me anxious to unpack my sewing machine! Hard to choose just one... Tweets by timeless, Dream a little dream, and all of the Shabby chic are gorgeous! Nice to get your updates again. I've missed them!
