Cotton + Steel Basics Giveaway

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
A couple months ago, I ordered a couple Cotton+Steel basics bundles from The Fat Quarter Shop when they were having a great sale. I picked up the Splash bundle which is full of gorgeous blues and the Berry Box bundle which has corals, pinks, and purples. I had just seen them online so I was hoping that the colors would be as vibrant as the pictures. When they showed up on my doorstep, they didn't disappoint! They are gorgeous! I especially love that a handful of them have metallics printed on them! So fun!

I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with them, but I knew that they were the perfect basics to add to my stash since they pair well with a lot of the fabrics I already own. 

Last month, I signed up for the Schnitzel & Boo instagram mini  quilt swap. I've never done a swap before so I am excited and nervous! ha ha I really hope that my partner loves what I am making her. After perusing/stalking her instagram and pinterest board, I think (hope) I am making something that will catch her eye! 
Once I figured out the pattern that I wanted to do, I decided that it would be the perfect time to break into my Splash bundle since she loves blues! I am loving how its looking so far! If you follow me on instagram, you will see more progress along the way! If not, stay tuned in January when I am able to post final pictures of the mini quilt I make! :)
(here is a link to the "X" block pattern I am using.)

So since I love my Splash bundle so much, the Fat Quarter Shop decided it would be fun to give one of my readers a Splash bundle too! Lucky you!
To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment with your name and email address so I can contact you if you win! I will choose one winner at random Friday Dec. 12, 2014 and announce it on my blog.
