Congratulations!  Email me your address to aubrey [a] and I will ship those out to you!  

Now to answer a few questions from the comments:

I really like the pattern. Maybe I'll try it by making the background fabric the focus and quieting down the pinwheel fabric. What do you think?

Both fabrics create the same amount of pinwheels.  So even though the white in the quilt I pieced looks like a background, you would get the same look if I switched the white with the charm packs. I had been thinking of doing one single cotton print instead of the white and then one solid color instead of varied charm printsOr maybe using one of the new solid color mix charm packs from Moda.  Hope that helps! ;) 

You mentioned you would piece it differently if you did it again for speed. Care to share how you'd make the process easier/faster? Thanks for the giveaway and I look forward to more pattern reviews!

Instead of cutting each charm square and then sewing I would have used this speed piecing technique.  Drawing a line where the directions say to cut and then sewing a 1/4" seam allowance on each side of the line.  To do this in the quilt I pieced, I would have had to match each white square with each printed charm square.  Then cut on the line I had drawn.  

Many thanks to everyone who entered and commented and visited!  You've all got me excited to put up my March review!  Coming soon!!! :)
