Fabric in, fabric out… a little giveaway!

Morgan thought the title should be binging and purging, but I didn’t feel that made for a nice visual…

Anyway, lately I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed by my fabric stash. Trying to organize and clean it up seems like a very daunting task and I don’t even know where to begin. I suppose most of the problem is due to my lack of organization. For so long I’ve felt that my sorting and piling method was working for me, but now I’m thinking I was just kidding myself. I’ve decided that I finally do have to get organized, and I suppose that means buying plastic bins and sorting and folding the fabric by color. (maybe then I’ll stop buying multiples of fabric I already own!)

fabric-scraps

One of my biggest problems has to be with my scrap stash. This picture shows many piles of scraps – yes, I can’t throw anything away! I have all the best intentions to use up every last scrap, but I realize that’s just not going to happen. I’m drowning in scraps and there aren’t enough hours in the day to sew them all together!

This is where you come in. I went through my scraps and came up with a few little bundles to give away. The first bundle is made up of larger scraps – those that I don’t think I’ll ever use.

fabric-giveaway

Then I went through the small scraps – some of these are quite tiny (and now very wrinkly!), but I did at one time really think that I was going to use them. They’d be great for a spiderweb quilt, which is what I had in mind, but then never got around to. Or they could be used for any other small projects. Did I mention that they’re tiny? They are.  I made up three bags of these small scraps.

scrap-bags

To enter to win one of these four bundles, just leave a comment here. Maybe you can give me some ideas as to what you’d do with small scraps – I’m always up for new project ideas! I’ll pick 4 winners on Monday night.

Thanks for helping me do some spring cleaning! Maybe I’ll be able to show you a photo of a completely organized stash by then!

Edit: Comments are now closed. I’ll pick winners shortly!

    Okay, I really, really want the big bundle, but I will take any of them–I adore your scraps! And, I just started a scrap project with my own scraps. I’ll email you a scanned immage of a few of the blocks I found and revised for my own scrap use! I too was feeling overwhelmed and had to organize recently.

    Rachael says:

    Thanks for being so generous! I’d use the little ones for improviational stars (like the Bushfire Quilt Project) or sewing them together for coasters.

    Jenny says:

    I’m new to your blog! I love to quilt, but can you believe I have no fabric in my house anywhere? So I’d love to start collecting! I love your quilting style..

    Kelly says:

    I’m wanting to work on a little piece for a wall quilt that will have tiny little squares in it… so scraps are GOOD! :) Thanks! Love it when a new post from you pops up in my google reader…

    Kama says:

    I’d love to win! I have just gotten into quilting and have made one quilt for my 6 month old son and have another for him in sandwich form. It is big enough for when he’s in a toddler bed and is all bright colors. I love bright colors and would love some of your scraps to incorporate into a quilt!

    Audrey says:

    I am always using up scraps! I do want to make a spiderweb quilt and some more bushfire wonky stars, too!:)

    Michelle says:

    The big ones would be good for improvisational blocks for me – I’m currently all burned out on spiderwebs, and don’t know what else to use little scraps for (that I would actually do myself). I’m really feeling the urge to re-organize my crafty closet now…

    Tiny coin quilts are my favorite thing to do with my scraps right now. Love your blog!

    I like to use scraps for confetti quilts, button covers, and tiny little accents! What a fun giveaway!

    Lisa Thoune says:

    Oh, number one never wins, but I’ll give it a try! I am in the middle of organizing my stuff, too, and I “stole” a bedroom from one of my kids to use as a sewing/craft/toy room. (He is sharing with his brother now. I’m a mean mom.)

    I have a lot of little plastic bags of scraps like this and have been toying with the idea of making a rainbow of fabric boxes to sort the scraps into. Then I would put the red scraps in the red box and so forth. The trick (for me!) would be to actually sort my scraps as I made them! I would put up a couple of shelves for the boxes to sit on and they would be so bright and pretty against my (soon to be) white walls. Kind of mixing form and function.

    I can see this in my head- now just to get ambitious enough to start doing it! LOL! Anyone want to come and paint a HUGE room… ? Oh, and did I mention it’s paneled…? No? No one? Right.

    abcgirl says:

    You know all those cute selvedge projects that have been popping up all over the web (the dress, the upholstered chair, the zipper pouch….)? It would be fun to sew a bunch of scraps together to make a larger piece of fabric to sew something from! But… I also like the Bushfire Quilt idea…. I’ve been thinking of making one of those….

  12. 12
    Joanna says:

    I’d be able to use the big bundle for random quilt squares and other little projects, but any scraps are great! The little scrap bag, I’d work on a scrappy quilt top I think…just sewing them together until they made a big enough square!?!

  13. 13
    tracy says:

    I would so love some of your stash and the chance to touch some of your genius!
    As for tiny scrap: covered buttons. Then you can make hair clips, magnets, thumbtacks…

    katie says:

    I’m really drowning in scraps too, but you know, other people’s scraps are always more fun! haha. I can’t wait to see what everyone says they use their scraps for. I really need some ideas too!

    Carrie says:

    Wow, that’s a generous giveawy. I can’t bear to throw out scraps and I LOVE to use them up! Right now, it’s the spiderweb quilt I’m working on, but a coin quilt is a great idea too.

  16. 16
    Janet says:

    Coin quilt or bits and pieces quilt. Love your quilting! Thanks for the giveaway.

  17. 17
    Renee says:

    I have no idea what to do with the really small ones. Decoupage, maybe?
    I would love me some fabric!

  18. 18
    Wendy says:

    I am just looking for scraps to make some starter projects. I can handle using the good stuff and then messing up so I need more practice. I would love to try some place mats with lots of different fabrics, so this would be perfect!

  19. 19
    Becky says:

    How fun! I love saving even the smallest scraps because I’m still new to the sewing world and don’t have much fabric. Plus, with the scraps sitting in a basket, it’s just to pretty with all the different colors and patterns mixed together. I’m hoping to make a quilt top using all the scraps I’ve collected someday when I have enough!

  20. 20
    Liz says:

    I would love to be considered for your scraps, they are beautiful! I would be using these in a quilt I am making for my mom for Mother’s day.

    I love your blog, your designs are so fresh and modern. It’s a great source of inspiration to me. :)

  21. 21
    Marissa says:

    I want to make a scrap quilt that is completely random. Your scraps would be a great addition to what I have, I might have enough to start it.

  22. 22
    Judy D. says:

    those scraps would be great for my geese in the forest quilt!

  23. 23
    Nova says:

    Lots of quilts. Coins, postage stamps maybe, or those ones where the binding or border is made from different fabrics.

  24. 24
    Jessica J. says:

    So fun. I’d love to win some scraps!
    You could use scraps for small things like patchwork checkbook covers, zipper pouches, or potholders. I know none of those ideas are quilts, but if you don’t want to keep them for yourself they’d make for great hostess gifts or small birthday presents (Like, I’d pair a zipper pouch with some lipgloss and mascara for a present).
    Thanks for the great giveaway!

    Kerry says:

    I love scrap bundles! I usually use them for odd small projects like pin cushions, or strip pieces for purses…but I’m always on the look out for new scrap projects.

    Melissa says:

    I never throw scraps out either, no matter how tiny they are. And you know what? There have been many times when I’ve needed a little something, and I actually use one of my teeny tiny scraps! You just never know!

  28. 28
    Marta says:

    I just came across your blog. I live right around the corner in Charlotte. hmm… i’m not sure what i’d do with them yet. I’m sure I could think of something.

  29. 29
    Kirsten says:

    Ooo… I would love to win a bag of scraps! I’ve been wanting to make a coin quilt, but don’t have any suitable scraps. I usually buy by the project (no stash) and don’t have enough leftovers from anything to put together something fresh! A bag of scraps like that would put me well on my way!!! :) Love the blog!

  30. 30
    Alissa says:

    Oh I won’t say no! I probably should, but the possibility of fabric that I don’t have is tooooo tempting! Fun!

    Amy says:

    I just took a paper piecing class and these scraps would be perfect for some paper piecing projects! Thanks for sharing!

    nettie says:

    what great scraps you have!!! deciding what to do with scraps seems like every quilter’s dilemma. there’s always the spiderweb quilt, or i love a scrappy quilt made up entirely of squares. i’m sure you’ll come up with something great, you always do.

  33. 33
    Rachel says:

    Oooh such pretty fabric!! I would love the large bundle, but if I had all those lovely smaller scraps I would use them to make some wonky log cabin blocks to use on the back of quilts. I love a litle special surprise on the back!!

    Thanks for the chance!
    Rachel

  34. 34
    Kerri says:

    thanks for sharing your scraps!! i see some very lovely ones in there!!! i’ve been wanting to do a snippets quilt and your scraps would be perfect. there probably would be enough to do a small coin quilt too. :)

  35. 35
    LeeAnn says:

    I always feel uninspired by my own fabric scrap stash. Maybe its because we are tired of looking at them? But someone else’s scraps are an entirely different story! Bring it on.

    :) Have a good weekend!

  36. 36
    Jessy Roos says:

    Hi Ashley! I have to say, I admire your courage to try and sort through all your fabric. I have only a fraction of the stash you have, but I still can’t bring myself to sort scraps or fabric by colour. Good luck! I would love any of those beautiful bundles you are giving away, and I would probably turn them into a colourful scrappy pillow for my bed, or a small stacked coins quilt. Also, I noticed you are from South Burlington, Vermont. I actually grew up in a town called Burlington in Ontario, Canada!

  37. 37
    Jacqui says:

    I love using my scraps to make flowers from ‘fabric leftovers’ by D’Arcy-Jean Milne. Being in the Uk I don’t suppose I qualify for your give away which is probably a goodd job, I have enough scraps to spend the rest of life making flowers! But on the other hand can any of us say no to more! Love the blog BTW all your gorgeous ‘Weekend Sewing’ projects kept me going and made me doubly impatient for my copy (which arrived this week!)

  38. 38
    Sarah B. says:

    I’ve been reading your blog for awhile now, and I would LOVE to win some of your scraps. You have impecable taste in fabric! My husband and I will be moving to the UK for grad school in September, and I would use these lovely scraps to make a scrappy quilt for snuggling to get us through the cold northern England winters.

  39. 39
    Anita says:

    Wow, that is very nice of you! I’ve been using my scraps to make smaller patchwork projects. I made a baby quilt, a doll quilt with pillow (the idea was from crazy mom quilts), and a small patchwork bag for my daughter. I’ve also made a bunch of the log cabin squares from the year or so old Melly & Me tutorial.

  40. 40
    Michaela says:

    Thanks for a great giveaway! It is not little. I think it’s huge. I absolutely love scraps. In fact, I am starting to run out, so please, can I win yours?
    I use them in variety of projects, quilts mainly. Paper piecing, appliqué, well a lot.

    fabric fabric fabric any would be great!

    Valerie says:

    I love scraps! I just made a quilt using a lot of my fabric scraps, so more are always welcome! Also, I would love to make a string quilt, so scraps would be useful for that as well!

  43. 43

    I would love to win, although I’m not quite sure why, as I’m constantly trying to pare down my own stash. I offered to do a fabric exchange with another blogger who was collecting black and white. When I asked how much she was thinking of exchanging, she said, “I don’t know. How about the equivalent of two fat quarters?” WHAT???? I need to get rid of much more than that. Anyway, I sent her yards, and she sent me her selvage edges. Completely cool. So if you want to start saving your selvage edges, or anyone else out there reading this, I’ll TAKE THEM!!! I have great plans.

    But I’d still love to win some of your scraps also….

  44. 44
    Bobbi says:

    Oh, I hope I win!!! I’d love to be able to win.

    As for ideas with the scraps: you could make Happy Houses out of them!

    Beth says:

    Cool!!!! I love all your fabrics and those scraps would be perfect for a few things I have in mind. I have been wanting to start a spiderweb!

    LauraP says:

    I am the same way I can not throw away any scrap. (psst, I even keep the salvage for a pillow I seen in blogland) OK and I feel the same way I am so overwhelmed I have a 5 gallon tub of scraps and that is over stuffed. I looked at is last weekend and said oh my goodness this has got to be fixed. I started somthing like you have on you floor and I got about a 4th the way through and said I CAN’T do this. You give me inpiration to start and finish this time.

  47. 47
    Jennifer says:

    I don’t blame you for giving them away, it takes so much time to organize scraps! I just spent a whole day trying to get my craftroom in order. Could’ve used that time sewing!! (And it’s still a wreck by the way). I’ve got a new project I just finished with scraps on my blog if you want to check it out. It’s a really cute table runner. I’d love to get any of these little packages, I too am thinking of doing a spiderweb quilt.

  48. 48
    Jenn says:

    I’d love some of the tiniest pieces – I use them for decoupage, so they don’t even have to be big enough to hold a seam. What wonderful colors you choose!

  49. 49
    Jeni says:

    Oh scraps… they take over our lives! Sometimes I feel great throwing away my scraps and other times I think “man, if only I’d saved a little piece of that ___”
    Kudos to you for getting cleaned out. I don’t have many suggestions because I am on a zig zag and spiderweb kick. But i’m sure you’ll come up with something great! P.S. I love your blog by the way. It’s very inspiring!”

    I’d love some scraps to add toward my small stash. I’m wanting to start a scrappy log cabin quilt.

    Fun – coasters and pot holders jump to mind!

  52. 52
    katie says:

    oh, what a nice giveaway. I think with the larger scraps i could probably make some clothes for the kids, and the smaller ones would be great for quilts of course.

    What a lovely pile of scraps. I would love to take a pile of your hands. ;-)

    I love all of your scraps. I think greeting cards made from fabric scraps are so much fun. Also scarves and headbands for me and my girls. Pockets of totes, patchwork stuffed animals.. so many ideas! Thanks for the giveaway

    Lovely scraps:) Maybe you could make a scrappy quilt, they are so cute.

  58. 58
    trina says:

    All my quilts are scrap quilts to varying degees. I refuse to make a quilt with just a single fabric collection. I love the variety and just plain fun of scraps. All my teeny tiny scraps get reserved for doll quilts. I’ve got two little girls with countless cold baby dolls.

  59. 59
    nichole says:

    oh man! i would totally love to have some of your scraps! the first thing i thought when i saw them was the spider web quilt. i really like them but don’t really have enough scraps of my own to really make one.

  60. 60
    Cassie says:

    I just used up a bunch of my scraps and would love to have some new to use. I love sewing a bunch of scraps together improv style and constructing a purse or bag out of the patchwork fabric.

  61. 61
    susan says:

    I have been trying to use my scraps to make pillowcases. (similar to the dishtowel idea) I buy white cotton pillowcases when I find them at a good price and then I add a band of pieced scraps around them. They are colorful and easy to make. It would be fun to incorporate some of your scraps into the mix!

  62. 62
    Hannah says:

    Ohh, I LOVE scraps!! I’ve been wanting to make a scrappy quilt but don’t have enough of my own scraps yet… :)

  63. 63
    Amanda says:

    I’d love either the small or large scraps. Small woudl be great, because I’m dying to make a spiderweb quilt but I just don’t have all the fabrics to do it. The large one would be awesome, too, to add a little zip to my quilting projects. I’m in a bit of a sewing funk, and I think an infusion of new fabrics would go a long way. Thanks for a great giveaway opportunity! :)

  64. 64
    vanessa says:

    I would love to have any scraps to make anything from a quilt to applique shirts!

  65. 65
    BabkaGal says:

    I would love any of the bags! I would probably make small, quick projects with the scraps, such as potholders, camera cases or bookmarks. Since the scraps are pretty small, I would sew them together in a a crazy-quilted or log cabin style.

  66. 66
    Meagan says:

    Scrap coasters! I get more mileage with my scraps when I use a common fabric such as my awesome muslin roll for the back and 2/3 of the front, leaving only 1/3 to be filled with colorful scraps. It almost makes the scraps more impressive, being limited to that small space!

  67. 67
    Emily says:

    There’s something so fun about another person’s stash! I went through my mom’s scraps on a recent trip back home and pulled pieces for a stacked coin quilt–but didn’t have room to pack them into my already overflowing suitcases. Next time, I guess. (Love your black/green spiderweb quilt!)

  68. 68
    Carol says:

    I love scrap quilts and always looking for more scraps. The large pieces I would add other fabs and make table runners, table toppers or maybe something else, depending on how much there was to work with. The little ones I would use for scrap quilts, fabric postcards and maybe even on cardmaking!

    Karen says:

    I just started quilting recently and I only wish I had MORE scraps!! I hate buying 1/4 or 1/2 yard of fabric to use just a small portion of it… My current project: the stacking coins quilt so I would LOVE your scraps!!!!!

  71. 71
    Tara T. says:

    Love giveaways- maybe I’ll just win one finally :)
    I ADORE spiderweb quilts so I would probably start piecing on with scrappy scraps like these. I’m also making a quilt similar to your “Sea Flower Strips” quilt made last year…I’m sure all scraps would be useful!

    rachel says:

    Thanks for the chance at a give-away! I have been making scarves (scarfs?) out of scraps. I also have dreams of a really girly quilt for me since I live in a house with all boys! I love your blog!

  73. 73
    Stephanie says:

    Fun giveaway!

    I’d use the scraps to embellish some tea towels and curtains for my kitchen or make a doll quilt.

  74. 74
    Kristina says:

    After drowning in scraps myself, I decided to make quilt blocks with them after I finished a project. It uses up your scraps, your blocks look great (you already picked out the fabric to coordinate from your larger project) and then you have a stash of blocks to whip into a quilt if you are in desperate need (or just a procrastinator like me)!

  75. 75
    Shannon says:

    I’m working on a random log cabin with my scraps. I need to sort them out a bit better though so that all the strips and strip like pieces are in one bin.

    Hilary says:

    I would love to use those scraps!

  77. 77
    Vicki says:

    Ooh, me! I made a scrap quilt from fairly small and some medium scraps earlier this year. You can see it here: http://sewinspired.blogspot.com/2009/02/finished-scrap-quilt.html
    I just sewed pairs of scraps together until I had a big pile of pairs, then pressed and did it again, repeat until I had blocks the size I wanted. Next time I’ll probably make them a uniform size.

    Sam E. says:

    I’m definitely feeling the random log cabin love on the blogosphere–I think that’s what I’d do with those lovely scraps!

    Goodness, I would love your scraps. I just saw this pillow today at Anthro* , and thought about how much fun it would be to make!

    Hooray for fabric! As for scraps, I love to use scraps for embellishing kid shirts and onesies… even the smallest scraps can be used.

    Sheri K. says:

    scraps are my favorite. I love getting random patterns, etc and putting them with others to make fun items. First on my list would be new hotpads that I really need, and also toys for the babies that are about to join our family…I have a step sister that just had twins, a sister in law about to give birth, and my sister and I are expecting this summer! Crazy times…your scraps would help!!!

  86. 86
    Barb says:

    I think I’d like to make a spiderweb quilt – especially with those yummy scraps that you have. Of course, I’d really love your big bundle. Thanks for the generous giveaway!

    Barbara Hache says:

    I decided to start sewing again after an 8 year absence and I am in love with so many of the new fabric designs ! I would love to use some of your small pieces to make a purse. It would be a labour of love but I would get to admire so many beautiful fabrics !
    Thank you for your generousity !
    :-) Barbara

    Jennifer says:

    Wow, how exciting! I can’t wait to see everything after it’s organized. I love big fabric stashes. I would use the scraps for all kinds of small projects; business card holders, christmas ornaments, baby toys, scrappy belts…. there are so many things I could do with them! I hope I win!

  89. 89

    How fun! I’d love to inherit your pretty scrap collection! Thanks for sharing. You’re work is really beautiful.

    Michele says:

    My latest obsession is making little tiny pincushions from plastic lids, little mushroomy looking things. Small scraps are perfect for this! I’m also making up 4-squares for a pincushion make-and-take children’s activity for our guild show.

    I love little scraps for tiny doll clothes, collage and little quilts.
    Thanks for the opportunity

    Kindra says:

    I have no scrap stash to speak of, so pretty much anything you have would be awesome. I’m a new quilter and I would love to try out a spiderweb quilt or coin quilt or some other scrappy quilt…yep, pretty much any scraps would put me in scrappy quilting heaven.

    Jill Jones says:

    How sweet of you to share your scraps! I am especially intrigued by scrap quilts – and I’m dying to start one!

    Karen Holbert says:

    I would be quite honored to receive your large scrap bundle! As for ideas? I’d use them to adorn the fabric birds I am making for my little one’s nursery. Spring is in the air!

    johanna montoya says:

    Are you kidding!? Free fabric (no matter the size)..always welcome. I love your blog, blogging away when I should be working. It’s raining in North Texas so I would rather be QUILTING! I am making my 4 yr old quilts for her babies so your scraps would be put to great use. You have an inspiring collection from what i see. Thanks for listening.

    Holy cow at the scraps! How fun! I would love to make some log cabin pillow cases or coasters.

  98. 98
    Sara says:

    The giveaway posts are always popular, aren’t they?
    You have the best fabric stash I’ve ever seen, so one of those scrap bags would be worth more to me than a bag of gold. What would I do with it? Probably just pour it out, go through and touch and admire every last piece, and repeat.
    Actually, I’d like to use them to make one of these ( http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/2008/09/message-board-and-artwork-holder.html ) for my daughters bedroom.
    Thanks for the chance!

    Ellen says:

    Woo Hoo! I love scraps! I like to use them for Grandmother’s Gardens. But if they are too small for that, I have a friend that sews them all together into a bigger piece and then uses it in a block. It gets a little thick sometimes, but she coordinates colors so well! It’s really cool looking!

    Sarah C says:

    I am in 3 quilting bees and love to have little scraps of fabric to add to the blocks that I make. Little scraps and big scraps are so perfect for this.

    Also I have a little cousin who just LOVES to sew with me. She will take my bag of scraps and hand sew them together to make her beautiful creations. She is 5, so you need a little imagination to see what she made, but it is so much fun.

    Thank you so much for this giveaway!!!! My fingers are crossed.

    Joanna says:

    Oh my goodness it looks like complete heaven there to me!!!! I am a scrap lover. Can’t throw even the tiniest piece away! I use them for my applique. Even a little once inch square can make the perfect berry!

    Autumn says:

    This sounds so funny, but “I want your scraps!” They all look so fun. Honestly, I don’t know what I’d do with them….put them in a jar to proudly display my winnings at my entryway, perhaps. Joking. I’d make something with lots of white and little “pops” of color. Something wonky and fun. Something that could be used for Spring/Summer decor and usage. I could go on…..

    Ahhh…..”I want your scraps!”

    Trina says:

    I want to make a coin quilt, I think that was the name everyone has been using for it. I just don’t have a stash yet, so I don’t really have scraps to use. This would be a perfect start. Oh, I really hope I win!

    Frogdancer says:

    I know EXACTLY what I’d do with a bundle of scaps… I’m making a sting quilt. 4″ suares, Queen sized. It wasn’t until I started that I worked out I’ll need between 3 and 4 THOUSAND little strings of fabric. (I know, I’m an idiot. If I’d worked that out before I started I don’t think I would have begun.)
    I’ve run out of little scraps. I’ve cut into every big piece of fabric I own, and now I’m looking for different fabric so that the quilt has variety. Your scraps would be cooed over, cuddled and then mercilessly cut up and every inch would be used.
    (Fingers crossed!)

  115. 115
    Liz says:

    Ooh, what a fun giveaway. I would use the litlle scraps for doing applique designs on shirts, bibs, blankets too.
    And those bigger scraps, well they are all fantastic so I know I could find uses for making things for my little girl like doll clothes, bags or smaller projects. I will keep my fingers crossed! Have a great weekend!

    I just finished my first foundation-pieced square, which is for a quilt bee with some friends. So far, each month I’ve been able to try a new technique. I just love foundation piecing, and I have all sorts of ideas that will use up all the tiny scraps I can get my hands on. I’d better stock up on thread, though :)

    Becky says:

    I love your fabric! I have been a quilter for a while now, but just lately have been discovering online quilters and their different styles. I have never bought any fabric with bright colors and big prints, and I would love to play around with it and try it out. I use little scraps when I applique and it is also fun to sew scraps together to make a big piece of fabric for binding.

    Ann-Elise says:

    I found your blog through the Heather Ross’ Summer Blouse post, and have been lurking ever since. I almost thought about commenting when you were looking for a baby model, since I am right here in Winooski, but then I thought that meeting someone from the internet has enough stigma, much less introducing your 8 month old daughter to an internet stranger.
    Anyway, while reading your back posts, I found the one on the produce bags you made. And realized that I had been standing in line in front of you at the cutting counter at JoAnn’s when you bought that fabric. You were telling an older woman who was buying something to fix the handle on her canvas bag about your project, and being engaged, and I remember because I’ve wanted to make a produce bag like that since, but couldn’t remember what they were made from. When I found that post, and saw your wedding photo of you and Morgan, it all clicked in an eery small-world VT way.
    I was the one with the whining toddler and the overstimulated, screaming then-infant, now-baby model.
    Now, if that doesn’t TOTALLY creep you out, I will say that I would probably make a coin quilt with the smaller scraps if they’re big enough. I haven’t made one of those yet.

    I would love some of the scraps, I am making a quilt for my husband for xmas this year (hopefully!!!) and I am making it w/ a 1 1/4″ thimble template having one piece for everyday we’ve been married. Through this xmas that would be 4121 pieces!! and if I don’t get it finished I will need to add another 365 to finish by next xmas….talk about motivation!!! any way more scraps would be great, i am trying to repeat as little as possible.

    Chris says:

    I need to branch out from my safety zone of only using coordinating fabric families! Swapping fabric and doing giveaways is a great way to broaden your fabric choice horizons. Don’t we all have certain colors in our stash that are virtually non-existent? That’s me. I would use your scraps to infuse some fresh colors into my boring old color choices ;-) Good luck organizing! I did it a couple of weeks ago with clear plastic shoe boxes. It helped alot.

  137. 137
    Katherine says:

    I’ve been loving all the spiderweb quilts that have been floating around blogland. Scraps are a fun way to add variety without buying bigger pieces. I think it would be fun to do a scrap swap…everyone sends in a big ol’ bag of scraps, it gets tossed up, and sent back out. But on second thoughts, the logistics of that would be a nightmare.

    I wish I had just a pinch of any of your scraps! I just started quilting and I don’t have any scraps. Every quilt I see that I like are more of the scrapy kind.

    Have you checked out Bonnie Hunter’s website? Quiltville.com? The original spiderweb pattern is there, but there are tons of other patterns good for small scraps of various sizes. I used up a whole bunch of scraps on improv blocks/tops of various kinds as well. I also used a bunch of scraps making Marsha McCloskey’s Block Party blocks. That was a ton of fun. I don’t really need more scraps, but I LOVE your stuff, and so I’m sure I would love your scraps.

    Lorene says:

    Back when I had only one child I started a mini quilt with each family member’s initials. Then I had child number two and pretty much quit sewing. Perhaps winning one of your scrap bags would motivate me to finish up that mini quilt. Including the initials of son number two, of course!

    Val says:

    ohhh, this has me so excited! I am new to quilting…just finished my FIRST ONE this week in fact! I am building a fabric stash and would LOVE to have scraps for another quilt! I have in mind to make each of my nieces and nephews a scrappy quilt so this would be perfect!

  160. 160
    Kourtney says:

    I think this is such a great idea!!! Maybe when my scrap piles get big enough I can do the same thing!! I think if I won your scrap bags (or your bundle!!) I would make the coin quilt I’ve been dying to make. Your scraps look just big enough to do it!!!! So…. PICK ME PICK ME PICK ME!!!!!! :)

    I love scraps. I too just spent the last three days organizing my fabric. I bought the bins and folded by color. It was a lot of work. I want to start working on a spiderweb quilt so thats what I would do with the scraps. Thanks for the giveaway.

    seriously? I think there is a piece of Amy Butler Belle in that larger bundle…. one that I love!

    Melanie says:

    A few months ago, my SIL and her 5 year old daughter came for a visit. My niece showed an interest in the sewing that we were doing. I pulled out a big handful of scraps, trimmed them into rectangles, and gave them to her. She loved it and sat for a long time with us, arranging and rearranging her fabrics to “design” her own quilt!

  166. 166
    Amy says:

    Oh, please, please PICK ME! I’ve been working on a scrappy quilt but have had to put it on hold because I’m out of scraps…my stash was not nearly as big as I had hoped. I’d love to be able to finish the project with your scraps…I really only need the smallest of pieces. Love your blog and getting the chance to admire your finished quilts.

  167. 167
    Allison says:

    I have the same problem, but I sure like other people’s scraps. Its just like doing someone else’s dishes, it doesn’t bother me at someone else’s house, but its like pulling teeth in mine. (I still do them though…promise) My scraps usually end up in log cabin blocks, etc. I love your scraps..they are way cuter than mine. :)

    I would sew them all together by color to form bigger squares and then make a scrappy blanket or anything little like coasters, change purse, hacky sack :)

    Scrap quilts are my favorite, my girls need some doll quilts and like you I’m bored with my own stash. I would also like to do a coin quilt and maybe another spiderweb quilt.

    claudia says:

    I’m not very good at using my scraps either–it’s so hard to get rid of (throw away!) such pretty fabric. I have been using some of my scraps for appliques on t-shirts for the kids. This doesn’t use up very many scraps, though. :)

  178. 178

    nana says:

    I love my scraps, and I will love yours too, promise. I start with a strip and a pile of scraps, sew a scrap to the strip, repeat to the end of the strip. now cut the strip between the scraps to make a bigger scrap. grab another strip and start adding scraps again, cut and repeat until u have a wonky scrappy patch. fun to do and fun to use.

    I have been using my oldest daughter’s room as my sewing room while she lives with her mom. Since she is moving back this summer and we had a house full last night, I got real energetic and moved all my stuff out of her room and into mine in 3 hours. My cute husband likes it all in there and thinks it looks neat. I told him it was a disaster. So he said he will build me storage…oh I hope so! So some new scraps to fill it with would be great! Thanks for the chance!!

    kristine hanson says:

    ooooooooooh I would love the big scraps! But I would take the little scrap bag too!! When my scraps get really small I cut what is left into 2″ strips….I have a big box ready (anytime!) for a wonky/crazy log cabin quilt….

    Exciting!!! Pick me!
    A friend of mine is working on a quilt for her baby, while she is patiently awaiting the little one’s arrival. She asked for people to participate by sending her pieces of material to be incorporated in the quilt. I would love to be able to send her some of these lovely pieces along with the others I have put aside for her.

    I don’t have many scraps yet as I am fairly new to quilting so yours would be a wonderful addition to my rarther small collection!

Thank you for your lovely blog and a chance to win some of your lovely scraps.

It is a good way for me to hone my quilting skills! Plus I would have a really great time “playing” with all of the colour match possibilities from such fun fabrics! Thanks for offering out your fabric as a treat for somebody else…what a great idea!

    Joanne says:

    What a lovely giveaway .. and so many wonderful fabric scraps. What I would do with so many beautiful pieces is sew them together in groovy colour combinations and make them into softies – they would look great and make excellent gifts for kids or big kids too(like us).

    Hey =) Such a great giveaway! I think I’d love to use the scraps for a pillow case. I’ve got a new sofa that’s all white and I think a few colorful pillows would look great on it!

    There is nothing better than someone else’s scraps!!!
    I love to make minature quilts so your little pieces would bring me great joy. I have been known to rifle the trash at quilt classes to gather the little scraps others throw away.

    I would love to win your scraps!! I have always loved and admired fabric and wanted to quilt, but always felt intimidated to jump in. Last week I broke down and started my first quilting project. Needless to say I don’t have a scrap pile (yet) and could desperately use some scraps to keep me going.

    Fioleta says:

    I would love to win as I don’t really have a fabric stash yet and I want to learn to make quilts. I have a small daughter, so I probably could use the tiniest scraps for dolls clothes and quilts, also could make some pincushions and fabric covered buttons.

    the colors are just phenomenal. tiny or not! good luck with the spring clean!

    ayumills says:

    Your scraps look beautiful! I know how you feel. Scrappy fabric multiply exponentially and it gets quite difficult to organize it. I’ve been making small thing such as coasters and little drawstring bags using only scraps. These are easy to make and surely are a great way to use up scraps!

    I’d love to win scraps! I’m a scrap hoarder, too, but I think that others scraps are much more intriguing than my own. I’m saving to make a coin quilt and I always can use scraps for various quilting bee blocks!

    Erica says:

    I would love to win some scraps! I have just gained enough courage to start my first quilt. I have been admiring all of your beautiful quilts, and I have decided that for my first quilt I am going to have little bits of colorful fabrics amongst a predominately white background. These scraps would be perfect for this!!! I would love to win!!

    I’m new to quilting and love your blog! It’s very inspiring! I would love to try a spider web quilt or a selvage project out of scraps, I currently save all mine, but haven’t found the time to do much with them =) I think I spied a tiny goldfish in a bag in that middle bag of scraps in your picture! I would just love to have that bag!

    I’ve been collecting scraps to make a quilt for my sister’s baby but she lost the pregnancy at 22 weeks. Looking at my scraps makes me sad. Yours are bright, cheerful, and give me hope. I would probably do something similar to this: http://tinyurl.com/cobvfy

    Rachael says:

    The scrap purge is so much fun….. sorting, recalling projects, figuring which yardage you want to track down again. I use scraps to make post-card quilts- sketch out a scene, cut templates, and applique while I ignore mindless television in the evenings.

    Sara says:

    Oh boy, I can use those scraps. I’ve started making art angel pins and they get put in bags that are given out to newly diagnosed cancer patiens. Local oncology/hematology offices give the bags (containing info on cancer, a pillow, scarf, journal, etc. all provided by Positively Pink Packages) to newly diagnosed patients. You can learn a bit more about the art angels here: http://ifwishesworewings.blogspot.com/

    Jess says:

    What wouldn’t one do with scraps? Currently, I want to make some patchwork strips to embellish curtains for my “office” and would love to include some of your lovely, inspirational fabrics and colors — without increasing my own stash. (I gave up craft stores for Lent!)

    Nancy says:

    I have also been trying to think of thinks to do with small scraps of fabric, and have considered trying a few spider web quilt blocks. Otherwise I use mine to liven up the selvage items that I have been making lately. I guess that makes it so they aren’t strictly selvages but I like a stip of color here and there. Thanks for the fun giveaway!

    Ursa says:

    I am same. I already have enough fabric and scraps and continue to buy more. It is a hard addiction to break. As for using scraps, I am still only looking at them. Not using them yet. But would like to. :)

    Dallas says:

    Ooh, I saw this earlier and forgot to comment. I hope I’m not too late yet. If I won, I’d use the scraps for a scrappy quilt. I’ve been wanting to make one in either a coin quilt pattern, or maybe the spiderweb pattern that I’ve seen on various blogs recently. The fabrics you show would match my collection of scraps pretty well.

  262. 262
    nanann says:

    I just used some itty bitty scraps to make a confetti quilt like the original one I saw by Lady Havartine or the more recent version by crazymomquilts. It was a lot of work but so much fun to use all these one inch scraps to make a cool looking ‘art’ quilt.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    what a great giveaway! it gives great inspiration for all the scrap quilts out their!

    Cheryl says:

    Apparently people really like scraps! I’ve swapped scraps a bit. it is a good way to try something with scraps but with fabric that isn’t already boring you to tears. I’m tackling my Project Improv quilt with scraps. Wonky triangles. And planning a few other ideas.
