It's been enjoyable to see a sky full of Sparkling Stars this month. I love how each Sparkling Star row is a little different. April's block can still be found for free on Craftsy and also HERE. There's still time to download your free pattern and sew along with us this month. The prize this month has been donated to us by Colonial Needle. They are donating a Turn Sharp Rotary Blade Sharpener. You can view a video on how it's used HERE. It looks like a wonderful tool to have on hand! I have been so tempted to open the box and try it out. It looks super easy to use. All you have to do to win, is post a picture of your block in the flickr group for Quilt Doodle BOM 2014, or blog about the block of the month. If you blog about the BOM, make sure to email me a link so that I can check it out and pin it to my BOM group on Pinterest.
|The Turn Sharp Rotary Blade Sharpener is effortless, ergonomic, and economical. Comfort-grip knob locks a rotary blade in place for easy turning and perfect sharpening every time. Includes a FREE 45mm Rotary Blade Sharpener. May also be used with the 28mm and 60mm Sharpeners. Blades not included.|
I will announce a winner May 1st when the new block comes out. So here are just some of this month's wonderful Sparkling Star strips that have been posted so far. There are so many awesome blocks in the flickr group. Everyone has done such a wonderful job so far! It's fun to see the blocks and strips together. Our quilts are slowly taking shape.
