Almost Summer Giveaway

Because I felt like summer would never arrive this year and here we are only days away I thought I'd offer up a giveaway.
I knew when I was making this that I would end up giving it away at some point and I guess now is the time.
Cheri did these freebie blocks on her blog and this is my interpretation.  I love that she gives away a little quilt every month from her followers.
I am feeling overwhelmed at the kindness of the people who are reading my blog and this is my way of saying thank you.It is called Soot & Ashes and is approx 25"x34".

So, leave a comment and a way of contacting you and I'll draw a name on Tuesday, the first day of summer.

  73. How thoughtful of you to give away a quilt. Especially this adorable little quilt. Unfortunately, even though it is almost summer, here on the west coast of Vancouver Island, we have yet to have spring. Perhaps on the eve of summer, the weather will suddenly change and the temperature will, at least, move up into the 20s Celsius.

    ReplyDelete
  74. That is so beautiful, I would love to hang it on my wall in Maleny, Australia.
    Very very generous!

    ReplyDelete

  85. I did not realize it was almost summer. Here in the Pacific Northwest it is still just a bit chilly with a sunny day thrown in perhaps once a week. Love your soot and ashes. I remember seeing the patterns posted but did not start on it..I just knew as much as I liked it I needed to complete some UFOs...I am making progress with that task. Love following so many blogs. Need to add yours to my list..
