Happy Birthday to Me and a Give Away For You!!!

Yep, today is my birthday, and I celebrated the whole day.  My husband and son spoiled me rotten by simply taking me to a quilt shop so I could get the borders and backing for my son's quilt and then out for dinner.


Unfortunately you can't tell how purple the middle fabric is, but it matches perfectly with the purple in the quilt.  I was really happy I could find these fabrics, I think they are going to work well.



Today's block is Dolley Madison's Star.  It is a 9-inch block and number 55 of 366.  I'm really enjoying this theme of something in a star.



Now for the give away.  I had so much fun making the Full House quilt I'm actually going to make another one.  I received a second Full House pattern in the mail this week with an order, and I thought I would share it with one of you.  I was also thinking about how much I enjoyed receiving a $25 gift certificate from the Fat Quarter Shop for Christmas this year.  So for my birthday I'm also giving you a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter shop!!!! :)  You can pick what you want to spend it on, and I get to know that you are enjoying doing it!


So here is how you can enter to win:

1.  Leave a comment telling me when your birthday is (you don't have to include the year).
2.  Become a follower of my blog or let me know you already are a follower.
3.  Blog about the give away and leave a comment with the link.
4.  Put a message about the give away on Facebook and leave a comment.
5.  If you don't blog or have Facebook, send an email to your friends telling them, include me in the email, and leave a comment.

Everyone has multiple chances to win.  This give away is not sponsored by anyone, I just want to share some of my happiness from today with you.  I hope your birthday this year is as happy as mine has been.  I will use the random number generator next Friday, March 2 to choose the winners.  I'm linking with Can I Get a Whoop Whoop?  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen
