I Love Home BOM ~ Block 4 + a GIVEAWAY!

 It's that time again!  Time to share the last block in the I Love Home BOM.  To get more information on this block and all the others just hop on over to Jacquelynne Steve's blog.  Wait don't take off just yet, you'll want to stay for the giveaway at the end of this post!
 Here's my block 4, I love the design, the different sized points look like fireworks exploding.  Yes!  We're having a celebration today!  Wooohooo!  The last block, we did it!


I've had so much fun adding my own little design elements to this BOM.    In this block I opted to leave out some of the windows and hearts on the roof due to the larger print on the fabrics.  


Fussy cutting the the hearts for the center of this block was my favorite part.  I thought about using fancy machine stitches for the flower stems and leaves.  But at the last minute I decided to use up some small scraps of green fabric.  This left no room for the leaves.   
 Most of the fabrics in my quilt are PKM by Lakehouse fabrics.  Many of you may know that this company is no longer making fabric and it's hard to find but if you search Etsy and Ebay you can still find a few of the prints. 


I'm looking forward to seeing what you and all the bloggers in blog hop do with this months block.  The pictures in the Facebook Group and Pinterest Group have been so inspiring.  I'm already thinking about creative new ideas for next years BOM.  

This months giveaway is sponsored by OLFA.  At the beginning of the blog hop OLFA generously gave each of the bloggers a cutting mat, rotary cutter, and a Endurance Blade.  I've been using them since receiving them.   And let me tell you, when they say Endurance Blade they mean it!  Not only have I cut all the fabrics for this quilt using them, I've cut fabric for four other quilts.  The blade and mat are still going strong!


The most exciting news is OLFA is sponsoring this months giveaway.  Here's what you could win.  A cutting mat, rotary cutter and a package of the new Endurance blades.  Due to shipping this giveaway is only open to residents in the US. 


To enter the giveaway all you need to do is leave any ole comment in the comments section below before the end of the day November 12, 2017.  Make sure I have a way to contact you. There's been several no-reply comments.  Add your email address to your comment if you're unsure.  Don't forget to visit all the bloggers in the hop for more entries.  

Podunk Pretties  ***  you are here!

See you all next month for the borders grand finale!

Recently I was blessed with a brand new basic sewing machine. I was overwhelmed. I am away from home sitting my grandDOGter and my grandsons for two weeks. These blocks are at the top of the list when I get home to my new machine. A new giveaway package with these awesome blades would be the icing on the cake. Either way I'm a winner.
