Have you see the Challenge that Cloud 9 is running for a whole 12 months?? You design a 12″ block (finished) and submit it, and you may be in for a chance to win a full FQ Bundle of their new Cirrus Solids (21 colors). Your entries are cumulative…so if you don’t win this month your design is still in for a chance for the rest of the year. More details on how to submit and rules can be found here.
Why I am telling you all of this? I am “Miss February”. My design “Mind the Gap” won the Block of the Month for February.
