Virtual Quilting Bee block #8 + an awesome giveaway

It's hard to believe that we are already on Block #8 of the Virtual Quilting Bee - which means we are almost half way there!
If you're new to the Virtual Quilting Bee click here for all the details as well as links to block and introduction to quilting tutorials. 
This month the block is designed and taught by Judi Madsen of Green Fairy Quilts. Doesn't it look fancy? I'm so excited to learn Judi's technique for making this block. It is a little more detailed than some of our earlier blocks, but we are ready for a new challenge! Just keep in mind what I shared in my last post: pin your points when you sew and sew your seams with a scant 1/4" seam allowance. Don't forget to press carefully - don't stretch the fabric. You're going to do great!

If you are not familiar with Judi or Green Fairy Quilts, you must check out her blog to see her amazing quilting! Judi and her husband also own an online fabric shop specializing in pre-cut fabrics, specifically Moda's, at great prices.
And today Judi is offering to giveaway a fat quarter bundle of Moda's new collection Baby Jane by Cosmo Cricket. I have been seeing sneak peaks of this line popping up in social media land and I am totally smitten. I may have break down and get some!
If you would like the opportunity to win this pretty fat quarter bundle (a $90 value!) visit Green Fairy Quilts and sign up for their newsletter, come back and leave a comment telling me that you did. That way you'll get the latest head's up on the amazing sales, specials, and pre-order announcements when new things arrive in the shop. There's even a great sale going on right now! Giveaway open until Wednesday, June 19 at midnight, MST. GIVEAWAY CLOSED

Winner: ELNMJune 14, 2013 at 7:04 PM
I'm already signed up for Green Fairy Quilts newsletter! Love this fabric line - soft colors with the pop of red. Many thanks for the inspiration! 

Thanks again to Judi for the latest block tutorial and for a snazzy giveaway to go along with it!
