I have been quite inconsistent over these five years - lots of posts, then radio silence - but it's always been fun. Learning to knit and crochet has taken time away from quilting a bit, but I'm glad to have completed two large projects this summer, mostly made of fabric I had in my stash. I'm hoping to finish a few more large projects before the end of the year.
To celebrate having reached the fifth birthday of Life's a Quilt, I am hosting a give-away. This mini quilt was made with scraps from Summer Berries, with some white added. Maybe you could hang it on your wall, use it on top of a dresser, or tuck in a doll for the night... It measures 15"x21" and is machine pieced and hand-quilted with pearl cotton. My stitching is pretty uneven, but I hope it adds to the homemade appeal! The only way to improve is to practice! The back is the same Marimekko fabric I used on the Summer Berries quilt and has a small label. Anyone who reads this blog can be eligible to win if they leave a comment on this post. I'll draw a winner at random next Sunday evening (September 4th). If you would use them, I'll add a few Marimekko scraps in the winner's package. Good luck and thanks for visiting my blog!
