I am turning 40 in this last week of June! To celebrate I have re-done my blog (still a work in progress) and I am hosting a giveaway here to thank all of you for following and hanging out here with me. (There are some Mason Jars up on the right if you want to find me in other places on the web.)

The prize is a $50 gift card to Mad About Patchwork a Canadian online and brick & mortar shop.

They have been super nice to me and I want to thank them and also support shops in my country. :) To enter, please use the Rafflecopter below. If you are not on Facebook you can sign in with your email address.

After that, head over to my Instagram page if  you like and enter to win 52 charm packs from my stash (1 for each of my years + the 12 days of Christmas... just because) and a roll of Peppermint Divine Twine. The charm packs are varied but there are a few Bonnie & Camille, Aneela Hoey and the 12 Christmas ones are from "Holiday Happy" by The Happy Zombie. Use hastag #daydreamsbirthday40 and tag me @daydreamsofquilts (There's a typo on the hashtag in my post.)

  67. Happy birthday! And the Bavarian Chocolate Torte, it comes from the 70's versions of Betty Crockers Cookbook. It is a variation of the Two Egg Chocolate Chiffon Cake. You end up with 6 layers of light fluffy cake and frosting. The chocolate flavor is present but not overwhelming, the frosting perfectly complements the flavor and texture of the cake. You make it a day ahead and it tastes even better after that night in the fridge. It's a dream :)

  81. Happy Birthday _ hope that you have a fabulous year filled with all the things that bring you joy. I used to love Dairy Queen Ice cream cake but I can't eat that much dairy anymore so I my choice would be watermelon cake( a watermelon cut in the shape of a layer cake- iced with whipping cream and covered with berries on top and slivered almonds. It is delicious and easy to digest- very refreshing..

  82. Happy birthday. The forties are great years. I love lemon cake with raspberry filling and lemon icing with slivers of lemon rind.
