A Finish and a *Giveaway*

I recently finished up my Lucky Square quilt!  Out To Sea was a perfect selection for this pattern, it turned out even better than I had imagined :)  I picked up the fabric on a whim at Wexford Dry Goods (if you're in the Pittsburgh area, check it out - there's a huge selection of solids and some really great prints, too!) and found the right project for it!  The sun was still out a little bit when I got home today, so here's the photo shoot.

So proud of the corners :)
Thanks to Lauren for suggesting the striped binding!  It turned out to be super cute!  I was worried about having to patch together a bunch of different colors, but I think it looks really fun. 

The quilt was finished up just in time - one of my good friends was pregnant and I figured I had some time (she's not due until sometime around the end of March) to get this surprise finished up.  But the little one arrived on Thursday!  So it's time to get this labeled and washed!

Now for what everyone's been waiting for... a giveaway!  My birthday is coming up next Monday and I want to celebrate by sending one of you a present!  I've pulled a charm pack of Twenty Three out of my stash for one lucky reader!

...this could all be yours!
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post!  A comment about anything at all.  If you can't think of something, tell me a funny birthday story.  And if you follow my blog, you get an extra entry (just leave a separate comment telling me you're a follower, new or old).  And if you really want a third entry, spread the news about this giveaway via Twitter, Facebook, your blog, or whatever.  I'll pick someone at random on Monday, March 4.

Good luck!
-Melissa

  19. Nice job on the finish! And Happy Birthday! Of course, no funny birthday stories come to mind, but when I turned five years old, I got a little sister for my birthday. That was exciting.
