On this day two years ago I wrote my first blog post. I never imagined I would make so many connections with people who love to quilt as much as I do.
I am so thankful for everyone who reads this blog, those who take the time to comment, and for everyone who shares their own quilting journey with me. You guys truly are a blessing to me.
Last year I let my blogiversary day slip right past me. Why, I’m not sure. I think I had a good reason but can’t remember now what that reason was. Hmmm…
This year, we are celebrating!
Today I have a tutorial I want to share with you. It’s a mini quilt I made to help celebrate Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, and Veteran’s Day – all rolled into one!
This mini measures 12-1/2″ x 15-1/2″. It can be hung by the door to welcome your friends or hung in your house. I added a sleeve to the back so I can hang it on my little flag pole in the flower bed – it’s not a weatherproof quilt, but I figure a day out now and again will make the little guy happy, right? 🙂
You can find the tutorial for the Stars & Stripes Mini Quilt by clicking the link or clicking the Tutorial tab at the top of the page. At the bottom of the tutorial page is a link for a PDF version if you would prefer to print a paper copy.
More good news!
In addition to the tutorial, I am giving away two sets of fabric – one each to two readers – so you can make your own red/white/blue Stars & Stripes mini quilt.
The giveaway is open to everyone. It’s my way of saying thank you so much for following along these last two years.
To enter, just leave a comment telling me what you like to do to celebrate your summer holidays.
For a second entry, follow my blog (links in sidebar for email or Bloglovin) and leave a comment letting me know how you follow.
That’s it – easy, peasy!
I will draw two winners on Friday, May 20th.
Have a great weekend – see you on Monday for Main Crush Monday!
