scrappy give-a-way


 

Jodi, at Pleasant Home, has been getting folks to part with their scraps. Not an easy thing to do, for sure, but I'm pretty sure of a couple things: 1) it's always easier when you know they're going to a good home;
2) it's always easier when everyone else is doing it (don't tell my kids I said that).

So, here goes: I'm giving away the latest batch of scraps. Truth be told these aren't ALL my scraps. These are the ones that haven't been 'filed' or boxed into the color bins that I keep with the yardage pieces.



Lots of good stuff, including some basketballs and planets, birch fabrics (organic) and a pile of five inch squares (technically, not scraps, I know).



There's a bit of Pillow & Maxfield, some Felicity Miller 'Kites' and a whole lot more.

The scraps have been used in projects like these (not-yet-blogged):



Leave a comment telling me what you'll do with the scraps and why it's fun to have someone else's scraps.
I will choose a winner on Sunday, Nov. 14. Good luck!

What's the likelihood that the first comment would win scraps? Oh well. I have more than a few blocks that I make using scraps --- they may end up in a quilt for the hospital or the women's/children's local shelter. I know they are in need of more quilts. Thanks, too, for the Hooter's Cover tutorial --- it is timely for my daughter.

beth said...

just love those scraps. I'll make a quilt, of course!!

J-me said...

i want to try and make a scrapy quilt!!! I have some scraps too, but its more funw when they are someone elses!

Emillie Rose said...

I'm a new follower! Would love to win scraps to add to my scrappy quilt I am making!

C said...

I'll add them to my scrappy quilt! I love others scraps because it is often fabrics that you wouldn't be drawn to/pick out, but you end up loving them!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Wow what great scraps! I love scrappy quilts, and it's fun to expand with new scraps. I'm hoping to make a quilt using all scraps. Thanks for sharing.

Tracy said...

I want to make a scrappy quilt, and all of my scraps look the same. It would be fun to have something different than what I would normally choose.

Kasey said...

Other people's scraps are like Christmas every time I look at them... Each time you pull out a piece, it's completely new and exciting and then I wonder what they made with it. I would make mug rugs, laptop sleeves, maybe the purse I have envisioned in my head... any number of things can be made if only I try.

Needled Mom said...

I would use those wonderful scraps with my granddaughters. They love to make scrap quilts.

Bree said...

I'm "collecting" scraps to use in a quilting bee, and I saw some great ones in your pile! It's so much fun to find scraps from other people since they're usually ones I don't happen to have & often ones I've been eyeing & love.

Mariliz's Musings said...

I love scraps...I will use them for Log cabin blocks!! Thanks

Phyllis said...

I love making scrappy quilts and baby quilts so I'm sure that is where I would use them. Thanks for the giveaway.

Melissa said...

I am working on collecting scraps to make a huge (i'm talking 90 x 90) ABC quilt for my sister to hang in her school :)

Linda said...

Oh crap, more scraps..........but I sure could add them to mine and make something!!!

dooddles said...

OPS = Other People's Scraps! I frequently raid the scrap bin at my local quilt shop. It's always fun to see color combinations and patterns that other quilters use and envision. I would use the scraps for small quilty projects like mug rugs and doll quilts. Too much fun! :o)

Four dogs and one quilter said...

With so many beautiful fabric lines in the shops today it is hard to choose. Winning some scraps, I get to have a little of everything.

Foster Momma said...

I would love a chance to win! I am wanting to make my aunts and a cousin some scrap baskets out of fabric-so having some additional scraps to add would be awesome! What a great giveaway!

Nancy said...

I think I saw some robots in that pile of scraps! Love them. I'm not sure what I would do with such a lovely pile of scraps. Maybe a string quilt. Thanks for sharing with us.

sandandstarfish said...

What to make what to make... I'd add some of the scraps to the scrappy quilt I'm making, some would go to the chair cover for my office, some would find their way into the homemade Christmas cards we're making and then some would be cherished and stared at and pondered over for hours! :) oh, a couple scrappy fabric bags would probably be made too!! Thanks for giving away some of your lovelies with us!

tellad said...

I am gathering enough to make my first Dear Jane quilt! Thanks! Teri Dingler

Karen said...

Its fun to have other people's scraps to try out various color schemes that I wouldn't have tried otherwise.

luckymom said...

I would like to make a scrappy quilt like the one Jodi posted only not in christmas colors. I think it's fun to use someone else's scraps because I grow tired of the few I've had especially if I've made 2 or 3 things from them.

Thanks for the chance

liz said...

I would love to make a scrappy quilt and some mug rugs with your lovely scraps added to mine. Thanks for the opportunity!

KristyLou said...

I don't have many scraps.... so I just think it would be fun to have someone else's to make some stuff with. I love the scrappy looking quilts, and I intend to make one... some day. But until I can get enough of my own scraps, I have to try to win other people's.

Stephany said...

We would be using them in my girls' quilts for their beds and other projects of theirs! :) Thanks for the opportunity!

Di~ said...

I'm pretty glad I found your blog! Yeah! I'd love to do a ticker tape quilt with those awesome scraps! Thank You!

Anonymous said...

I'm getting the urge to piece another charm quilt, so would cut little pieces out of each fabric and sew them back together again. That's what we quilters do, right?
Terry M. P.

Jorie said...

I would use the basketball, planet, and other prints like that to add to my stash of fabrics going into an I-Spy quilt for my son, and the rest I would use as I saw a need for, otherwise at the end of next month I plan on starting a scrappy quilt using all the scraps I have from this year!

Katie said...

I would make my MIL something for the holidays. Opening up someone's scraps is like opening a present!

rjk said...

I think having someone elses scraps are fun becuase they may choose fabrics that I would not and that can expand my quilting level.

SoniB said...

I have some scrappy hoop ideas running through my brain. I'd love to play with your scraps because I have so few of my own . . . I'm starting to get a few though. Thanks for the chance. By the way, I love your ghost chair cover in the background . . . too cute.

Laurie said...

I've been using my scraps to add as the ends of pillowcases. Gives it a funky, fun look. I give them to ConKerr Cancer for kids.

Marie said...

I like the idea of sharing scraps because sometimes I need just a touch of something and my own stash won't do it.

Debra said...

I would use these to make a scrappy quilt

kris said...

I want to make a scrappy quilt. And i think it is fun to see the fabric that other quilters out there use, especially since I am new at quilting. I may also use some scraps to make a few little gifts for friends.

kristen.sheffield@gmail.com

Remembrances said...

I would use the scraps for projects with my Sewing Circle at church. Karin

Miss White Wall said...

I'm really into mug rugs and hexies right now, so I'd make those! And playing with someone else's scraps allows you to use fabric you might not have originally purchased! Such a great giveaway, thank you!

snippetsandyarns said...

Mixing someone else's scraps into your own stash makes for a better variety, which helps us be more creative, I think.

Depending on what scraps I have available when I get done with my current projects, I'm thinking about either making scrappy squares to be paired with solids into a quilt - or maybe just making some smaller projects, like journal covers or bags or something like that.

Jenny said...

i have big plans for a scrappy quilt so these would be great...i love other peoples scraps..they expose me to fabrics that are not necessarily my favorite, but i love the exposure, and am sometimes surrpised by a fabric i wouldnt have bought!

peggy w said...

Scrappy quilts of course. They are so much fun and to add more scraps adds more variety. Thanks for the giveaway and your fun ideas. mdwelectric@comcast.net

razberiswrl said...

I would use your scraps to make hexies and add to my pile for an eventual rainbow scrap quilt! I love looking at other peoples' scraps/stash because it's like looking at color and fabric with another perspective.

elaine revier said...

Scraps?!? I can always use scraps either in the plethora of scrappy paper pieing projects I have going or to make a lovely quilt for a wee at risk baby via http://danettesangels.tripod.com I send at least 4 boxes of sweep tiny baby goodies per year and scrap would help fill up another box of preemie and newborn lovies!
~Yane

corinne said...

Great scraps, thanks

Nathalie said...

I'm new at quilting, so I need to practice and do some little things first. It will be fun to use fabric I didn't choose.

Shannon said...

Thank you for the chance to win your scraps. If I won them I would like to do a spiderweb quilt. I just love the look of them.

gnee @ Singing With Birds said...

I love Jodi's wonky scrappy quilts and so want to get going on one. Actually, I'm a controlled stasher and don't have very many to use. Your your giveaway is heaven sent for me! Thanks for the chance to win...and I heading out to see, "how to cover my somethings!"

EmileeHope said...

I would most likely use them in different projects. I am interested in doing a spiderweb quilt, but I am not sure if I am up for that big a challenge (time-sucker!!) at this moment!

I love other peoples scraps because it gives you the chance to work with new fabric (that you aren't bored with since you have already made an entire quilt with them) and that maybe you wouldn't have picked out yourself!

Thanks for the chance at winning some of your scraps!!

Chris@Cats On My Quilts said...

I make a lot of scrap quilts. I love them more than any other kind of quilt. I rarely buy collections of fabric.

pinsandneedles said...

I'm collecting/saving scraps to make a quilt along with Jodi"s Sew Scrap Along. It is nice to weave others scraps with your own to balance the quilt colors and fabrics. Thanks for the chance to win!

Patty said...

I would love to have your scraps to mix in with mine so I'd have a bigger variety. I want to make a string quilt with lots of different fabrics. Thanks for the chance.

JanetK said...

I haven't made enough quilts to accumulate enough scraps for a truly scrappy quilt. And it would be so much fun to get a bundle from someone else!

Vroomans' Quilts said...

Your scraps are yardage my dear! A lovely mix of goodies that would love my home

Ann T. said...

I would love a chance to be on your scrap list.

lindagerig said...

Everyone has different scraps so it would be fun to see what others buy for fabric. lindagerig@sbcglobal.net

Ashley said...

Just like everyone else, I have been wanting to try my hand at a scrappy quilt...ooh! Or maybe a mug rug! Something quilty. I think it is fun to see what fabrics other people are drawn to (and can't bear to throw away!)

barbara said...

I use scraps to make colorful eye spy quilts for my church that gives them to a local childrens home.

VickiT said...

What wonderful projects you showed but haven't blogged about yet. I am wanting to make my first scrappy quilt but need some nice scraps which is why it would be fun to win someone else's. I have a fear of cutting into my larger pieces of fabric which I am pretty sure I need some sort of therapy for BUT, maybe if I use another persons's scraps it will give me the incentive to cut my own into scraps. LOL

MoRia said...

I would love to have your scraps. You have boy fabric and I sure could use some. I have a quilt in the works for my son and the rockets and basketballs would make it perfect for him.

Sarah Craig said...

Our quilt ministry uses all manner of scraps to create the quilts we give away to people in need - usually people with medical problems, but sometimes to people who need encouragement or to newborns. Your scraps would definitely find a good home! We've made 52 quilts so far this year.....

Julia Marie said...

I love having extra surprise scraps to add to my quilts that I wouldn't necessarily have bought myself - or just things I love but have never seen in a store!

Francis said...

I love scraps & would like to attempt my first scrappy quilt. Its so fun to see what everyone else has in their stash :)

Petit Design Co. said...

I'll be adding your giveaway to the weekly post at: quiltygiveaways.blogspot.com

I would make some scrappy pillows!

Christine said...

add them to my scrap quilt...the more fabrics the more interesting the quilt becomes!!

Chelley said...

I love love love other people's scraps. It's a great way to see different fabrics. I used to buy $5 scrap bags at a quilt shop in San Diego. I had so much fun opening that brown paper sack to see what treasures were inside.

I'm hoping to start a string quilt if I win!

james and bess said...

great scraps! i'm working on a hexie piece to sew onto an art canvas - and those chairs would be so fabulous for it!!! and i wouldn't have to buy a whole big piece to add a little something special to my walls - woohoo!

bess :)

Kathleen C. said...

I'd love to win your scraps because it would be as if I had another quilter-you!-in my sewing room with me. Your fabric choices are different than mine (fortunately, because I tend toward dull reds and blues :) ), and your fabrics would help me move into another direction.
This year I finally began making a few quilts for donations. I can use scraps-yours are bigger than scraps, really-in patterns like chinese coins and liberated log cabins for donation quilts. That would allow me to do more of those.
Thanks so very much.

Theresa said...

I love scrappy quilts, especially string and nine-patches. I'm new at quilting (like 1 month) so I don't have enough yet to make a whole quilt.

SewLindaAnn said...

It's so fun because it's like being a fabric voyeur I think. Seeing what other people work with and having fun with small pieces that you probably don't have. Like shopping without having to spend money. It's just super fun being surprised and oohing and aahing and adding it to your own scrappy projects. I'm working on hand sewing little bitty squares together to make I think they're called postage stamp quilts, and also I love paper piecing scrappy pieces. Love the blog, now a subscriber in Google Reader.

Janet said...

I love to do scrappy quilts, but as a relatively new quilter, all my scraps look the same. The quilts take on a much better quality when I have other scraps to add. Thanks for the giveaway.

Linda T said...

It's fun to play with other people's scraps because they're often fabrics that I might not have purchased before. I'm a relatively new quilter, so this would be such fun since my scrap pile is kind of small.

deserae said...

I really want to make a ticker tape quilt and I don't have very many scraps of my own yet! So it would be fun to get some new ones!

Robin (rsislandcrafts) said...

I love the freshness of other people's scraps :) I'm working on some string quilts so some of the scraps would go there. The rest would go into a scrap quilt made of 2.5" squares.

Jeane said...

I would love to use your scraps in my love quilts that go to patients at our Cancer Treatment Center. I mostly make string quilts and lots of variety makes them shine.

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

I like to sort scraps what can I say...grin I use them in paper piecing and share with a friend.

Joy said...

I love getting scraps from others since I need help expanding my fabric tastes and my stash needs balancing out! I would love to get enough scraps to make a scrappy quilt...at this point I have enough for a pillow :)

Brenda said...

It is fun to use someone else's scraps for the variety. i would use them in a scrap quilt.

LethargicLass said...

Having started quilting recently I don't have many of my own scraps so having any would be wonderful lol... and it's always fun to see what fabrics someone else has used... I would use them to make myself a scrappy quilt.

caitlindevlin@hotmail.com

maree said...

I tend to use my scraps for applique but with Jodi's influence I am really excited about getting started on some scrappy patching!!!! Your scraps would be warmly welcome to come hang with my scraps:) Ciao

Bluzbrod said...

Someone else's scraps are new fabrics to you, and who doesn't like that! I'm thinking of making those wrapped bowls for gifties, and scraps are perfect! Doesn't matter what the fabric looks like, it blends beautifully when it's wrapped.

di said...

Oh, I would love to have some scraps! I'm pretty new to quilting so my stash is pretty small and I would just love to start a scrappy quilt! Thanks so much for a chance to win you scraps!

crickets said...

Oh, I've been itching to make a scrappy scrap bag, and your scraps are perfect for it (or two or three!) Just found a pattern I can adapt for it, and maybe I'll win some scraps! Thx for the opportunity!

Deborah said...

HOLY COW! You have got some lovely scraps. I always love having scraps from someone else's stash (friends and I share when we can get together to swap), and I always love looking at quilts I have made and/or given away and seeing scraps from friends in them. It always brings that person to mind, and brings a smile to my face. Your lovely scraps will make some quilter very happy indeed. Thanks so much for your generosity. Someone is going to be sending loving thoughts your way when they win your giveaway.

chris said...

I was so surprised to see your blog on Pleasant Home. I just took scraps from your mom. Would love to add yours to my scrap bins! Some of the projects I would do with the scraps are double hour glass, patchwork style scrap quilt and spiderweb quilt. It would be fun to have your scraps because I would think of you.

cvdnurse said...

I love to combine scraps since it adds colors and textures that I probably don't have. I enjoy making scrappy quilts (a la Bonnie Hunter). I'm working on one now for my son.

spencers said...

Using others scraps is so much fun because you're exposed to fabrics you may not have or may not have even considered but love the way work. Since I have all little boys and only nephews these would be used to make them little gifts! Thanks for the give away!

Alison said...

I guess many of us just have a healthy fabric addiction. There is something about fabric that comes from someone else. It is intoxicating to look at, touch, iron then imagine all the things you are going to do with it, and combine with the pieces you already have.
I would use your gorgeous scraps in some dolls I am designing for my nieces, and small frame purses, which don't take much fabric and challenging to make and just great to give as gifts.
Thank you for the chance.
Regards,
Alison

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Oh what great scraps! Thank you for the chance.I love to use other quilters scraps in bee blocks. Sometimes you just need a little scrap to add just the right touch to a block! thank you1

Vicki said...

Would so love to win some new and different scraps!
I'd make mug rugs and little quilts!

jetvic@yahoo.com

Cecilia said...

I would add them to my scraps(which are few) and make a scrappy quilt. It is fun using different scraps from other people. Thanks for the giveaway.

Cheryl said...

It is interesting to see what other people have chosen for their fabrics - sometimes its something you yourself would never chose. It would be interesting to add these to my collections for that something different.

Melanie said...

I am slowly collecting scraps for a scrappy quilt. I would love to have someone else's scraps because it would add variety to mine. I love my fabric, but after the second (or third) time you use a piece it can get boring. Thanks for the opportunity!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

When I have scraps, I make journal covers, bibs, burp cloths, zipper bags, placemats etc. It's fun to have other peoples scraps to brighten up what I usually use!

Kathy said...

My favorite type of quilt is a scrap quilt. I will use the scraps to make a Pioneer Braid quilt for my mother. She is very vocal about wanting one like the quilt I made for may bed. Help me make mama happy.

Brenda said...

Ii would love some scraps. I have been checking out every ones scrappy quilts and I think I need to start one after my Christmas projects are done.

Victoria Paige said...

I love using scraps to make quilted mug rugs and place mats. They can also make a great scrappy binding. It's fun to have someone else's scraps because you get to play with fabrics that you haven't had before, and possibly some you might not have purchased yourself.

Kathy said...

Looks like the perfect fabric to use for a I spy style project/quilt. That is what I would do with it - need a quilt for my youngest nephew who I haven't made one for yet and he is THREE, oops!
I love using others scraps to see 1) what they buy and 2) what I MISSED.

lorene said...

I currently have a triple irish chain - 1.5 squares! yikes what I am thinking!!! so the scraps will come in very handy indeed! this year for my girls I am making scrappy lunch bags for them for christmas. they all work and have been hinting for them. thanks for putting my name in the hat!

Lorene

ange said...

I have a few friends who are expecting in a few months and I thought it would be fun to make some baby quilts. Scraps make it so much fun!

Alia said...

I will make gorgeous quilts! I have a little bit, very little bit of fabrics from friends and it makes me feel good to see them in my quilts. It would be an opportunity to get small snippets of fabrics I might not have. That would be uber cool! Come by my blog to see what I have been doing!

Janet said...

I'm collecting enough scraps for a string quilt so I would use your scraps too. I love scraps!

elena said...

Love scraps! Thanks for a great giveaway.
I I win I would likke to make a scrap quilt.
Is fun to have someone else's scraps because you discover new fabrics, colors, is a surprise. Patchwork is recycle bits of fabrics so let's go to be more traditional :D.
Thanks again for sharing your scraps with us!
Fingers crossed

Katie said...

I want to make a scrappy quilt, but don't have enough scraps yet (I'm a new quilter). Thanks for the chance to win!

Quilter Kathy said...

I will make a quilt of course! First, I will let them sit in a bin with my fabrics and hope that their prettyness will rub off on my old boring scraps! And then I plan to make a ticker tape scrap quilt. Thank you for your generosity to the quilt world!

Sharon@Sharon at Home said...

Oh I love scraps ... especially someone else's. They always add an unexpected look to a quilt as they might be something you would never pick. Also, I love thinking about the people I get scraps from. It's a continuation of the quilt mentality of sharing and reusing fabrics.

momofsixgirls said...

thanks for offering your scraps! love em!

Marilyn S said...

I need some new scraps. It is fun to see what other quilters use in their quilts. I make table runners and pillows with mine. Thanks.

Wendy said...

It's great to have other people's scraps as they're often different to your own and so you use colours/patterns you wouldn't normally consider. I'd love to join in with Jodi's Scrap Along and I will, as soon as I win some scraps!! I want to make a quilt with blocks of one colour, a blue block with different patterns/shades of blue, a red block etc.

sandrinha said...

I love to make quilt and toys for kids, I send that to kids in Brazil in the hospitals. Also I make baby hats for premature in hospitals all over the world.
But the economic situation does not help us to afford pay bills and keep our projects up.
I am Brazilian living in Alaska, and it's very good to have things to do on this hard core winter ;)
fingers crossed!

trudys_person said...

I love someone else's scraps because they inspire me to do something outside my own box ... Thank you for the giveaway!

Penny said...

I like you color choices. Please share with me.

Mary said...

If I won your scraps I would use them in making a quilt. I've been dragging my feet, but I'd like to do the scrap vomit quilt featured on the I'm a ginger monkey blog. Sounds yummy, huh? I like using other people's scraps because they are always so interesting and often stimulate new ideas.
Thanks for a fun giveaway!

Kylie said...

I recently started quilting on my own since I inherited my great-grandmother's quilting stash, plenty of tops to finish, patterns to try, and fabric to play with but I need some modern fabrics to update the collection since I think the newest fabric is 15 years old. kcarlson1152[at]hotmail.com

Coloradolady said...

Oh, glory! I hope I am lucky!!! I am working on a postage stamp quilt and need over 4600 different pieces, I am almost there a few hundred short...these would go into my postage stamp quilt!!!!!

Davis Ohana said...

Collecting scraps is like Christmas all year round. It opens your world of color to a whole new level. It's challenging and the hardest part is deciding what project to do next? I'd like to make a twin sized bed spread for my sons.

Obsession said...

Hi...If I am given your scraps I would actually do a few things...I would make a bib for two of my BFF's who are having babies in January...and then the rest I would make a quilt to give to a very special lady in my life who has accepted me into her life and has called me her sister and equal. I am very honored for this.....

JuneBug said...

Beautiful! I have a few zippered purse pouches waiting to be made into holiday gifts - small peices of cute fabric are perfect for them! And getting someone else's scraps just increases the creativity level - coloring outside the lines!

MoeWest said...

I promise to give your scraps a good home! Chances are good that it is all something that I don't have, since my stash is small. I'm doing a mostly handmade Christmas this year, so if I win your scraps I'll have to see what ideas they inspire.

Lisa said...

I love scraps, I'd use them in a scrappy quilt. And I enjoy using scraps from someone else's because it adds different colors and designs to my quilts.
Thanks for the chance!

crickets said...

Using another's quilters scraps opens up your mind to something new and fresh! I find that touching every new fabric piece makes me smile and I feel like I get to know something about the former owner. We're now connected.

Marcia said...

To make a scrap quilt a quilter must have scraps. As a relatively new quilter, I do not have many scraps much less a big assortment of fabrics. I need to win some scraps so can make quilts in the Pleasant Home scrapalong. Thanks for the giveaway. alternate email mlwright29 (at) hotmail (dot) com

Elena said...

I would love to make one of those stashbuster projects! Like maybe a postage stamp quilt and matching throw pillow.

Paula said...

I think I'd use them to make another fabric basket; they're so useful and nice to look at. I don't think I have any of the fabrics in the photo so I would love to win your scraps. Thanks for the chance!

Texana said...

Oh, those are some fun-looking scraps. Right now, with two new baby granddaughters (cousins, not twins) I am busy making all sorts of things, from quilts to embellishing onesies to cloth baby shoes. I know those scraps would get a workout at granma's house!

I know it is hard to part with scraps but I promise to give them a loving home!

karen p. said...

i'd love to make a scrappy play mat for my sweetie! or lots of hot pads for christmas! acp328@yahoo.com

Pat S. said...

My Guild is collecting scraps for our upcoming bi-annual Quilt Show's scrap table. If I won your scraps I would donate them. Thank you for the chance to win your giveaway!

Laura said...

I like scrap quilts with LOTS of variety - colors/patterns/etc. Sharing scrap bins with someone else is a great way to add variety. I'm hoping to make several scrap quilts for my boys before winter gets too much colder - they're outgrowing their baby quilts, so the push is on! Thanks for the chance to win!

Vesuviusmama said...

When I buy fabrics, I find I buy the same kind of stuff over and over. I love getting scraps from other people because it is usually fabric I wouldn't have thought to buy or use, but works great with all my scrappy quilts. All gain, no pain! Thanks for the chance to win!

gill said...

I love scraps - especially other people's! At my sewing group we often swap amongst ourselves as we all love scrappy quilts
Gill

Tina H. said...

I see some cute fabric with birdies--I'd use that in some scrappy square in a square. Some would probably go into a charity quilt. Thanks for the opportunity to win some of your scraps.

Bunny said...

If I win these fabrics I'll use them to make a scrap quilt. The scrappier the better is how I like my quilts.

Jenny said...

I LOVE scraps!! I get a lot of inspiration when getting scraps from others. Fabrics, colors, designs that I wouldn't pick in the store myself. It's challaging me to think new - and sometimes hard :-) So your scraps would get a lot of love and care at my place. If I win I would probably do some make-up bags, baby quilts. And some pieces would go into my ongoing scrap quilt (http://tankaromtyg.mittspejs.se/P3058636)
All the best, Jenny

pixie13 said...

Right now our group is working on lap quilts for veterans, so if I won, that's what these scraps would be used for. I like other's scraps because it's usually something different than what I already have

robin said...

I'd love to make a scrappy quilt! Maybe little squares or something... Thanks for the chance to win your scraps!

tippyio said...

Since I am a new quilter - I need scraps! It seems that every project I look at (that appears easy enough for me) calls for scraps. I would love to start a new scrappy quilt! I also love looking at fabric and it seems that every piece of fabric I see - I want. Thanks for the giveaway.

dawnthompson said...

I'm making a scrap nap quilt for myself and need a few more blocks!

Rose M. said...

I'm like everyone else and I'll be making a quilt or rather 5 quilts. I want to make a small quilt for each of my 5 grandkids so that they would have matching ones - I think that would be awesome! Of course it would be great to win but if not I've found another great blog to follow!

Jackie said...

Other people's scraps are always much more interesting than our own! I'd love to have your scraps to make a quilt with.

Carol Sc said...

Wow! Look at how many comments you've generated! I thought I'd try a second one, since I had so much fun reading all the others. I agree --- we always like someone else's scraps --- because we all have a tendency to collect particular colors.

I would love to win your scraps - not sure what I would make, but will add them to mine and see how much I have then. Merry Christmas!
