anyone remember this mini-quilt?
well..... If you perhaps liked it so much you wanted it for yourself ;) -- you may be in luck!
i've donated it to my friend Kristina to auction off on her blog - to benefit Caylin's Cure. Caylin is Kristina's 5 year old daughter, who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes last March. All proceeds go to help fund Diabetes Research. So I encourage you to PLEASE BID!!!! :)
If you're interested in bidding - just hop on over to her blog here and leave a comment with your bid amount (if that amt is higher than the bid before you!).
When Kristina asked me to be a part of this fundraiser, and I dug the little tree mini quilt out of my craft closet, I also found an abandoned quilt-top that I had sewn & pieced before Noah was born. Carpel tunnel craziness took over my wrists & hands at the end of that pregnancy, and I was unable to finish the quilt. Fast forward a year, and I just haven't had the time (or energy!) to sandwich, quilt and bind it.
And since my quilting blog posts have been FEW & FAR between this past year, I did want to at least share the quilt-top in this post...
...because, lucky enough - it's found a new home with my friend Emily who was looking for something for her cute new baby Henry in this same pattern. A total coincidence but I'm super-excited that it's going to a good home and will be made into a quilt soon enough!
I followed the tutorial that I linked above, and used lots of fabric from my stash - most out of print (before you email me and ask where you can buy it ;).
I'd like to make something else (someday!) with this pattern - and finish it! - as I really love how the scrappy patchwork circles turned out.
And finally - just a little peek at the quilting project that seems to have been dragging on over the ENTIRE LAST YEAR. Which just tells you how little i have quilted since Noah was born.
This is for my good friend Katie's baby - who was born LAST OCTOBER - yikes. Sorry Katie!!! ;) I actually did get to sneak in a few hours of quilting time on it last week though. Which i consider a small miracle.
