    Nice!  And no, a queen sacrifice for black does not avoid mate, in fact it allows white to get mate in three instead!

    @evranis... after qxd4 or nxd4, it is an immediate mate with f4!

    Because in either of those situations either the Queen or the Knight would be blocking the King's exit onto d4 when the f file pawn moves up to f4 for a checkmate.  Basically it would be a mate in 3 rather than in 4 if you committed to any of the moves you proposed.

    If Black takes d4 with Q or N then f4 is only a sooner mate... It was nice. I remember a match which I thought I owned my opponents Q but it was trouble checkmate for me.

    it took me a short while to see why N or Q can't take pawn on d4
