Tree Quilt and Some Winners!!

This is what I made for the June round of the 6-12" mini quilt trading swap. I think it's arrived safely in Massachusetts, so I can post the whole photo now. The tree trunk is needle-turned (I need more practice with the corners) and the non-button flowers are machine quilted. I had fun working with the buttons - just bought a whole bunch of pink and purple ones for an upcoming project. That little button at the bottom is indeed a hedgehog. It was fun to see some of the guesses!

Drumroll please.............

Sorry it's taken me so long to draw the winners of my 200th post give-away! The Midsommar celebrations went on for several days... I decided to draw three names and the winners are Jmbmommy, Chookyblue, and Nettie. Congratulations! If you send me your addresses, I hope to have the minis finished by tomorrow (assuming I can finish them during the football tonight). Here's a little peek at one of them (entirely handquilted with perle cotton and big uneven stitches - my first try and I think I'm hooked!).

Love the tree quilt and the sneak preview looks intriguing - must try that big stitch quilting, my grotty old fingers could probably cope with that
