Early Finish and a Giveaway!!!

First off,  I want to say a huge Thank You for the sweet comments on my new The Royal Star Quilt Tutorial I shared yesterday.  I had so much fun with that quilt and am so glad you enjoyed it too.

And today, I am a little shocked to be sharing an April Bee Block finish and it is only April 4th!!  After waiting to the last day of last month I decided it was time to get back on top of these :)  Laura  gave us total cart blanche this month asking for a 12 1/2" block in grey and pink and possibly with a Valentine's day feel.  That's it.  It took me a while to decide what I wanted to do but in the end, I went with my love of Applique.  Aren't all of those little 2" hearts just so adorable!!  What a fun block to put together!!


And I might have gone just a little overboard with cutting hearts ;)  I used my Slice Machine and was totally in a cutting groove :)  It's all good though,  I will just send the extra's along and maybe Laura can use them in the back or something :)


And one more thing.  Happy Quilting reached a little benchmark last week.  4000 followers on Bloglovin!!!  Wow, that is a lot of friends popping in to check on the daily musings of a Happy Quilter ;)  Thank you all, I am totally humbled by how this little corner of the quilting community continues to grow.  So, let's Celebrate with a giveaway !!!

Green Fairy Quilts has graciously offered this gorgeous Storybook Brushed Fat Quarter Bundle to one lucky reader!!!  This line is absolutely adorable, I love it!!!



So what do you have to do for a chance to win this amazing bundle??  Simple

1 - Pop on over to the Green Fairy Quilts and choose a favorite Fat Quarter Bundle (they are all on sale right now ;)  and then pop back here and leave me a comment of what it is ;)

2 - For a second entry, you can sign up for the Green Fairy Quilts Newsletter and then come back here and let me know you did in a new comment.  

That's it.  Super easy right :)  Two possible entries per person.   The giveaway is open to everyone and it will close Tuesday the 8th and a winner will be announced Wednesday morning ;)

Good Luck to everyone and have a  Happy Quilting Weekend!!!

Linking this block finish up to Sarah's, Amanda's, and Fort Worth Fabric Studio :)
