These are tough times for lots of folks everywhere, though. A friend of mine, Ann, is holding a virtual raffle to raise funds to help a friend who has liver cancer. There are tons of prizes–mostly yarn–and I’ve offered a handmade miniquilt as a prize.


It is 11″ square.


Machine pieced, hand-quilted, and hand-bound.
