I contacted Missouri Star Quilt Co about this idea already but so everyone can SEE what this is about, you can download the Contest form on QuiltsForKids.org

Henry Glass and one of his designers have come out with a line of fabrics (a portion of the sales GOES to QuiltsForKids) called Happy town. I am hoping MSQC will get some layer cakes, charm packs, jelly rolls or even just these fabric in So we could make some beautiful Quilts for Kids AND maybe win $500 to get more MSQC fabric Whooo hooo

Ya'll know I learned how to Quilt by watching Jenny's Tut's on You-Tube only in November -- The only reason I wanted to learn how to make quilts, was so that I could make QuiltsForKids and raise funds for Animal rescue groups -- Now I'm ADDICTED to both quilting and pre-cuts so this idea sparked me to write MSQC and hope they will carry this cute Happy Town Fabric.

I hope everyone loves this fabric, and makes a QuiltsForKids (you can find a Local Chapter so you don't have to mail it into PA)...

Thanks for listening,

:-Debbie

I did a search to find what it is you are talking about. The fabric, the quilts, etc. I hadn't heard of it before. Here is a link.
If you scroll down the page, the form to make quilts for kids is there.

That's awesome! I am definitely getting in on this one. It's a win win....even if you don't win any money, your quilt is going to a child. Now I just need to find somewhere to buy the fabric.

Yes, I DO hope MSQ will carry this line -- For sure a Win Win! I adore making these smaller QuiltsForKids (((((((giving them all my love)))) in a fun quilt.

The site said that it would be in LQS in January but I haven't seen or heard of it until this thread.

The fabric is so cute, I saw the fabric at The Fat Quarter Shop if any one is interested, I was looking at it last week before I knew there was a competition, I love the Panel, here is a link if any one is interested. http://www.fatquartershop.com/store/stores_app/Browse_dept_items.asp?T=1&Store_id=499&page_id=17
