Fabric GIVEAWAY! (+ two finishes + news on shipping!)

Hello everyone! I've at least three subjects in this post so I hope you hang in there because it's good stuff to share! 
This week I couldn't resist Color My Heart, free pattern by Fat Quarter Shop/JollyJabber, and I made it in two different ways. The original pattern calls for one charm pack, and besides making one heart with 5" squares I also had to try the pattern with a mini charm pack, that is 2 1/2" squares! It worked perfectly, the pattern is so straight forward that it was like making the same best cooking recipe you already now, but with half of the ingredients! 



I'm definitely going to hang this small version in my sewing room...



This other heart I made with one Vintage Happy charm pack by Lori Holt, but had to add some other prints since the charm pack had less squares than required by this pattern. 





I think this heart make Clarice's coloring nook much more colorful and interesting...


I had a lot of fun making both of them, but I have to confess the smaller one is my favorite. The quilting in the bigger heart gave me a lot of pain, literally, in my shoulders! It was hard to quilt those swirls (not a pro for sure), I was completely out of my mind when I decided to make it! As you see far from being perfect.


Now, the desert comes! Fat Quarter Shop is given away the must have collection of the moment: a FAT QUARTER BUNDLE of Far, far Away by Heather Ross!!! They also have other good news, scroll down!

I love your swirls, they are beautiful. Quilting always has a few variations created by the quilter and perfection is in the eye of the creator. I try to remember not to be hard on myself when I make mistakes and you should too. Often someone else loves what we make, even when we are being critical of our skills.
