Happy Quilting Blogiversary Celebration - Day 5

Today is Day 5 of the Happy Quilting 3 Year Blogiversary Celebration!!!!   A fun filled week of milestones and giveaways!!!  What's up for today :)

Today's milestone project is my Summer Breeze Quilt.  Summer Breeze was my very first Happy Quilting Pattern.   When I was first asked about writing my own patterns I was so overwhelmed.  I had no idea where to even start.   And I am not gonna lie, it was hard.  I learned so much!!  In fact, I later remade the pattern to add size options once I figured that out.  I am happy that the learning curve is picking up and it gets a little easier with each pattern I write.  But Summer Breeze will always be my special first and is still my most popular pattern :)



And for the party . . . .Let's have The Blogiversary Day 5 Celebration Giveaway

Today's giveaway is for a Thesaurus in yellow Fat Quarter Bundle sponsored by The Intrepid Thread!!  Don't you just love those happy bright colors!!

  

So what do you have to do for your chance to win???


Leave a comment here of your favorite Fat Quarter Bundle at The Intrepid Thread.

For a bonus entry, you can subscribe to The Intrepid Thread newsletter  and leave a comment here that you did so :)

That's it.  Up to 2 entries per person. Giveaway will close on Monday July 8th and a winner will be selected randomly and announced shortly after.

Thanks for stopping by and celebrating my 3 year Blogiversary with me!!!  Be sure to pop in tomorrow for another milestone and another fabulous giveaway hosted by Fat Quarter Shop!!  And a little reminder, all Happy Quilting Patterns are marked down to $5.00!!  They can be instantly downloaded from my Craftsy Shop or Etsy Shop :)

Have a Happy Quilting Day!!!!
