Blogger BOM - April Fools Bonus!!!

Today is the April bonus installment of Blogger BOM.  The presenter today is Bree of Distant Pickles. Distant Pickles might be the best name for a blog ever!!! The block she created is called "Lucky Bear Paw". It is a twist on a classic bear paw quilt block. Bree created a great tutorial here on her blog.

I'm glad Bree had her ducks in a row as I totally forgot about this bonus block was quite suprized when I was drinking my coffee this morning.

I am really fond of this layout. Grrrrrrr bear paws.....

Since I totally flaked out on this bonus block and didn't plan a prize while I was biting the heads off peeps I will have to wing it. Luckily Bree is a talented pattern maker as well is her co-blogger Julie. You can pick your choice of the two patterns they have created Gyspy Dance by Bree or Mod Pop by Julie. 
Make sure you are a follower and leave a comment!
Giveaway open until 4/10/13

  1. Both patterns are gorgeous, but if I was the lucky one I'd love that Mod Pop! Jane

  2. I agree, both are gorgeous. I'd love to try curves, so Mod Pop!

  3. I love both patterns! If I was lucky enough to win I'd let you choose!!

  4. Gypsy dance is beautiful but I have been eyeing that Mod pop for a while now and would love to give it a go. your bear paw is cute in the colors of spring. Who doesn't love distant pickles -- she's great.

  5. Both are lovely patterns, but I'm especially drawn to that Mod Pop!

  6. Both patterns look great but I especially like the gypsy dance. Love your bear claw too. I have always liked that block and then I finally saw it in bright colors and thought it was even better!

  7. Oh I love Gypsy Dance. The colors and patterns.

  8. Love the Mod Pop pattern!!
