Giveaway: Michelle Engel Bencsko Extravaganza!


My Happy Garden fat quarter bundle. Get a closer look at these prints here.

It’s a HUGE month for Michelle Engel Bencsko of Cicada Studio and Cloud9 Fabrics. (And with Quilt Market coming up next month, I don’t think she’ll get to slow down any time soon.) She has designed two fabric collections that are both hitting the stores this month — Shade Garden, her followup to Dogwood for Henry Glass, and My Happy Garden, the debut line for Cloud9 Fabrics. As you may already know, Cloud9 is an exciting new organic fabric manufacturing company founded by Michelle and a partner. My Happy Garden is shipping to stores right now — you can see the list of stockists here.


Shade Garden fat quarter bundle. Get a closer look at the prints here.

She’s offering both collections up for grabs in one giveaway here today. One grand prize winner will win a fat quarter bundle of each collection — that’s each of the 16 prints of Shade Garden and eight of My Happy Garden (that’s six yards of fabric in all!). Two runners-up will receive one fat quarter bundle of either Shade Garden OR My Happy Garden.

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post. Comments will close and the winners will be drawn around 9am Central U.S. time next Wednesday, September 16. This drawing is open to fabric fans worldwide. Good luck!
