June Mini Quilt Sneak Peeks and Celebrating 200 Posts!

Here are two sneak peeks at the mini quilt I made for this swap. I'm having fun working with buttons! It was very loosely inspired by a greeting card I bought at Svensk Form in Stockholm a few weeks ago.

This is my 200th blog post! I had no idea what would come of this blog when I started it nearly two years ago, but it's been a lot of fun so far! I love being part of such a diverse, global group of quilters. I didn't mark my 100th post or the one year mark because I was away from home when those happened last summer, but I would like to make up for it by having a give-away now. So, anyone who comments on this post by Friday morning (Finnish time) will be entered to win a mini-quilt made by me. (Any lurkers and non-quilting friends are welcome to comment, too!)

I love how the ladybug looks almost sitting on the candy stripped border :-)

floribunda said...

is that a ladybug? what IS that? I thought it was a hedgehog... or a snail... Anyway, I'd be thrilled to win one of your minis!

Britt said...

I'll play...I like that you have a blog so I can always see your latest crafty venture. Now did you mean to imply that non-quilting friends are lurkers?! :)

Andrea said...

Just came over to visit a fellow ALQS maker and found out how busy you have been. 200-wow!
I was thinking that button was an adorable snail, but I guess we are all seeing different things.
I'd love to be in on the goody list from the quilts I'm seeing. Thanks for the chance.
