Sew Mama Sew Giveaway - now closed winner will be announced on 18th

It's been a while since I blogged as like many people life changes and priorities change. I stopped crafting for many months and when I started again it was to quilting I turned. I am a new quilter and I am exploring much of the quilting world through blogs and Instagram.
I have been thinking about returning to blogging and the sewmamasew giveaway seemed an ideal way to dip my toe back in the water.
I am giving away to international entries and I've decided to giveaway this mini quilt which I designed for the Dear Stella and Timeless Treasures giveaway. 
The competition was to create a mini quilt 20 x 20 inches using only their fabrics and no solids which I found challenging as it took me out of my colour comfort zone. I decided to meet the brief by using English paper piecing to meet the modern meets traditional brief.

It was an interesting learning experience as this was only my second EPP project - the first being the project in the blog sidebar.
If this is the first time you have been here welcome to my part of blog land. This blog will show some sewing, quilting, art journaling and photos of Scotland and sometimes my lab Jaspar.
To enter this giveaway let me know where you are from and what kind of crafter you are. If you want to follow me here or on Instagram (Salamanda001) please do but you do not need to follow me to be eligible.
Thank you for dropping by.

  88. Hi! I'm from Calgary, in Canada. I call myself a sewist these days - I love to sew quilts, but I never finish them, so the only things I do finish are my small projects, little zipper pouches and pincushions and fabric baskets and so on. So basically, I sew a lot. I also dabble in embroidery a bit!
