Day 3 of "5 Days x 5 Giveaways = 25 Chances to Win!"

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. Winners will be announced tomorrow Tuesday February 25,2014!
Good Luck Everyone!

Goodness me!
 Yall are I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E!!!.I can't keep up with yall you're hopping around so fast.
Reminds me of the other day when one of the barn cats was sleeping up on a board in the sun next to the hay ring, which just so happened to have a calf eating out of it and yep you guessed it, the little calf grabbed the cats tail along with a mouthful of hay. I don't know what was worse, the cats screaming and wailing and clawing like the devil himself had ahold of him or the poor calf that got scared so bad by all the ruckus that he run plumb through and into the middle of the hay ring.  And there I was caught in the midst of it all with a bucket of feed for the mama cow not knowing which way to run or who to see about first. It took me an hour to find the cat. Geesh!  Both the cat and calf were just fine. No one got hurt, but I tell ya these critters around here are making my hair get grayer by the minute! I still crack up every time I remember seeing that cat swinging by his tail from that calf's mouth. Thank goodness the calf had a mouthful of hay along with the cats tail. Anyway, the whole reason I was tellin yall about this is that I have been scrambling around my blog and email the last two days trying to make sure everyone is having fun and not having any problems entering the giveaways. This has been a blast so far and I have met alot of new to me friends. Normally I reply to comments left through emails but I probaly won't get to do that this time. :)  I really hope everyone is enjoying this 5 days x 5 Giveaways = 25 Chances to Win! So lets get to Day 3!
 Day 3's Sponsor is Julie of The Intrepid Thread! Yall, I just love this shop. When I first met Julie (online) she was strickly an online fabric shop. Then they opened a Brick and Mortar store in Milpitas Califoria and they have really just exploded with fabric! One thing I love about shopping with Julie is that I know she will always have the latest, most up to date fabrics available. She purchases all the fabric for the shop herself!
 Last year I participated in the Lets' Get Acquainted Blog hop sponsored by Beth at Plum and June. I knew I wanted to make something a little more modern for the hop. Something that might would appeal to the younger generation. So I jumped online and visited The Intrepid Thread. I found some fabric called Kona Modern Quilts that they had in a colorway called Berry. I loved it, so I ordered some and Julie shipped it out the very next day. This is what I made:
 A Giant Churn Dash! This quilt was so much fun. I made it using a Quilt as You Go method. It lives in my daughters apartment now at college!
 For the binding, I used strips of the same color pieces from the front for a scrappy look. And pieced the back with a different print of the same line.
I really enjoyed this quilt. The fabrics were a dream to work with. The colors are so bright and rich. I think it was the perfect fabric for this quilt. I was so glad that The Intrepid Thread had just what I was looking for. And they always have something new and exciting going on. Check out their Block of The Month "Gypsy Wife" that they just started or their Must-Stash Club ~: I promise you, it is never boring around there!
  So what does Julie at The Intrepid Thread have for us today? She promised something new and exciting. And that is exactly what she is offering:

A 10 pc Fat Quarter Bundle of Daydreams by Kate Spain! Yall this is just BEE-UTIFUL! Oh it has me Daydreaming about Spring!   Thank you so much Julie! You knocked this one outta the park!
