Which fabric was hard to part with? They are all lovely!

First off, I would love to welcome you to my blog.  You must be visiting from Quiltmaker's Quilty Pleasures blog for the 100 Blocks blog tour.
I would like to introduce myself just in case this is your first time visiting.  I am Stacey, I live in Maine with my wonderful supportive husband (getting ready to celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary in a couple weeks!), and our 4 crazy kids.  We own our own Custom Woodworking and Cabinetry business, and I spend my spare time quilting.  I taught myself to quilt  almost 5 years ago, and have been going on since.  I love to create, and make something beautiful!  I have been working hard to make something of myself, but it can be extremely hard sometimes.
Being featured in Quiltmaker's 100 blocks Issue is a major dream come true for me.  And to be part of something that so many amazingly talented people/quilters have also been a part of is just WOW!  I am going to continue being creative, and hope to be even more so.

My block is called Pinwheel Paws, and it is Block #452, and featured on page 49.  This block below was my first one I submitted, but they contacted me and asked it I could make on more contrasting.  So that is the second picture below.  I love them both, and I hope to be able to make a large quilt with this design soon.  (and also using some very special fabric I cannot seem to part with).


I hope you like them.

Ok, so now, for a giveaway!  The wonderful people over at Quiltmaker magazine are generously giving away a complimentary issue of this magazine to one of my readers!  And I am going to give away a second issue and include a pdf bundle set of my patterns (Stripes and Giggles, Stars and Strips, Castles, and my Country Crow Wall Hanging).  All you need to do to enter is become a follower of my blog, and leave me a comment saying Hi, and where you are from.  Easy right?  I hope you come back, and Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate you sharing in this accomplishment with me.
