a beautiful handmade baby quilt giveaway!

Last week I posted about a handmade baby quilt my friend Kristine from Josh & Paise (and me) are giving away. We originally started it as a raffle, and now want to open it up to a straight up giveaway. It's the holiday season-and the more the merrier. 

This quilt? It's so awesome.
I picked out all of my favorite fabric scraps from the Mama Mandolin blankets and then gave them to the quilting queen (seriously, she taught me how to quilt) to make it into something beautiful. Her work is quality. I'm sure you've seen photos of the boys' quilts from time to time, they were a gift from her on their first birthday. 

They've slept with the blankets every night for the past almost 3 years. They've been drug around outside, played on, traveled with, washed about 100 times. Still look beautiful. I can't say enough about the quilts, we absolutely love ours. 

Kristine also does beautiful free motion quilting on the top, giving it such a nice texture and design. I seriously don't know how she does it. I can barely quilt in straight lines. 
And now you have a chance to win one for yourself, or for someone you know. A baby quilt is probably one of the best gifts to give, it's an heirloom that can be passed down, they last forever, they're beautiful and if it's anything like in our house, they stand the test of time. 

The giveaway will end on Dec 14, 2013 at 12am and we'll announce a winner on Dec 15. 

Details on how to enter are below.

  23. There are multiple traditions that surround the holiday season; all loved, cherished, and treasured. A favorite for me would have to sugar cookie baking and decorating with my mom. We've been doing it ever since I was young, and it is what inspired my passion for baking. Now, in my twenties we still carry that tradition on when I am home for the holidays.

  27. my husband + I are newly-ish married and waiting anxiously for our adopted babies to come home from Africa. we're still very much in the tradition-making phase, but the one we have done consistently: buying an ornament each year to respect a major event from the past year. our first Christmas married was spent on our honeymoon in Spain. we bought a beautiful beaded heart ornament!

  28. my husband and I are still in the process of making memories and next year they will change dramatically with the new addition of our baby girl expected to arrive in April AND we are hoping to bring home our adopted toddler girls by next Christmas too! Every year since we've been married we have taken our bikes to a neighborhood in Tucson that goes ALL OUT for Christmas lights! The neighborhood gives away hot chocolate and cookies and they have carolers. It's such a fun night to see lights and enjoy the Christmas magic. I'm excited to take our strollers next year!

  31. One of my coworkers and very good friends is expecting her first baby girl this Christmas and I think she would absolutely adore this!

    As for Christmas traditions, as a child my favorite was Christmas Eve which meant new PJs, tons of cocoa and Christmas movie. As a grown up, I still like to make my boyfriend do all of the above each year! :)
