Shhhh ... it's a giveaway

Would you like this small quilt, designed by Bareroots and stitched by me? I've enjoyed making it, just stitching the border took me nearly 2 weeks. It is embroidered, and hand quilted and measures 23" square.

Just leave a comment on this post and I will pick a winner on Sunday 20th September at lunch time. Please, please remember that I am not perfect, that I made this for the enjoyment of creating it, and the pleasure of choosing fabrics and threads. Thanks again bloggers for reading my blog x
