Modern Sampler Bee Block

Wow.  I mean.. just.. Wow.  Check out the first block I received from Cat's Modern Sampler Bee.  They aren't due until June, but look how happy my mailbox was this week!  Leonie sewed hers up and mailed them pronto, and suddenly there it was.. in my box, all the way from Australia New Zealand. 

It's a 12 1/2" block, and I asked for bright rainbow-y colors, with grey background..  isn't it brilliant?  *LOVE*

I have been mulling over which block I will make for everyone and hoping that they will like them.. this is my first Bee.  Thank you so, so much, Leonie!!!  I adore it!  Beyond words! :o)  

If that wasn't enough happiness for my mailbox, look what else came.. I've had some luck in the contest department..

..Reuben the donkey pattern from Kathy's Friends with Benefits giveaway @ Sew Happy House,

..Dresden ruler, note cards and quilt pattern from Becky @ The Quilting Book Lady (St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop),

and these sweet, SWEET FQ's from the Berrima Patchwork Blog (St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop). I'm in serious love with the trailers. :o) I'm sleeping with them under my pillow tonight. Is that weird? LOL

One last thing.. if you have been thinking about adding any new quilt patterns to your collection, or have been thinking about getting the Kickin' Stash scrap pattern by Beth Helfter, head over to her blog and read her latest post.  She will be donating part of the proceeds of each sale of any one of her patterns to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund for the month of April.  She has a very personal connection to this cause, so new pattern, and raising money for cancer research?  I'm all in on that one.  Do head over there and read about it if you have a minute.

Happy Thursday!
