Scraps Giveaway!

I've been tidying up the sewing room lately!
It's that time of year again apparently.
Cleaning and organizing of the sewing room isn't limited to spring!
I thought I'd move out the scraps from my current quilt project,
now that the blocks are complete!

It's a bunch of strips.
All are at least 1 1/2" wide.

And there are quite a few.
Enough to make a cozy bed for Miss Pia!
They should all fit in a Flat Rate Box 
for shipping!

I had thought about using them in a string quilt,
but then they would be all the same fabrics as my current quilt.
I like to try and mix things up a bit so my quilts don't all take on that same look.
Do you do that?

So it just seems to be a good idea to move them out and send
them to a new home so someone else can create 
something beautiful!
No worries, Miss Pia! 
I'll cut out a new quilt and you'll have some new scraps to nap on!

If you'd like a chance to win the strip scraps,
just leave a comment here and let me know what you would make with them!

They obviously might have a kitty hair or two on them,
since Miss Pia has used it as her slumbering spot while I sew!

I'll pull a name next week sometime!

The fabrics are lovely, I would like to make them into lots of hexagons or triangles and use in a quilt or bags it is always nice to have a large selection, and no fabric is good unless it has cat hair on it, it will blend with my two cats.

Hi Kim - Scrap quilts are my very favorite kind, so this giveaway is right up my alley! If I was to win, I would use some of them for a red & white mini hexi quilt that I've been working on - and I have several Kim Diehl quilt designs marked to make from her books. Crossing my fingers!

I would love a chance to win them! I have been drooling over several scrap quilts lately and just don't have enough scraps yet to make one. This would help a lot!

I'd love to win the scraps that would go into a hand pieced quilt inspired by a picture in the book Small Pieces, Spectacular Quilts. Great variety and colors of your scraps!
Thanks! Mona (

I would love to enter for the scraps and wish the kitty was included in the drawing. I have never made a scrap quilt and would love to try it.


Margaret said...

Of course I will enter your drawing! Your color sense is so wonderful, I'll take any of your scraps possible. :D Of course, I'm not sure Mia would appreciate Miss Pia's hair in her territory....

Those fabrics are beautiful! I was just thinking of doing a string spiderweb quilt, but was thinking my scraps weren't varied enough - adding these to the mix might be just the ticket! Sorry to disturb Miss Pia though! I know my kitty will love laying in them, herself :) *crossing my fingers*

OH Miss Pia can you help Mom put these in a box and send them to me, you know how much I love making scrap quilts and making a little quilt with just these scraps would be really a fun project!
I am working on a postage stamp quilt and these would help add to that as well as a few other quilts I can see adding them to ….my log cabin quilt, a strip quilt…
thanks for the chance to win
