Luck of the Finns?

We've all heard the phrase "Luck of the Irish."  But my 31/32 Finnish-American hubby has also had an uncommon streak of luck.

Each month the Lincoln Quilters Guild hosts a mini raffle. You may recall my hubby won vintage yo-yo pillows last Fall.  Well, this past Monday, while I was working away at the tax office, hubby went solo to the LQG meeting – and he won ANOTHER raffle prize!  (The guild has well over 300 members, so what are the odds?!)


This month, his mini raffle prize was this lovely little 11" x 11" miniature quilt in shades of brown, tan, and red.  I love the tiny blocks in each corner, and the  pebble quilting with variegated multi-colored thread (a modern whimsical touch to this traditional-looking quilt), and the machine feather-stitched binding.


I think I'll give that man $2.00 and ask him to buy me a Powerball lottery ticket!!
