Oh Scrap! A giveaway!

A sneak peek of Halloween Quilt #2. Made with lots of scraps!

Are you a scrapaholic?? Scrappy quilts are my favorite kind and so I'm always hanging on to my fabric scraps because you never know when you might need them! And I always get so excited when I find the perfect place for them. (Plus I feel this weird [ok, pathetic] responsibility towards them. Like I need to provide them with a good home or something.)
The good old Table Runner tute is one of my favorite uses for scraps. 
But, if you're like me, and your scraps are starting to take over your life, not to mention your storage space, go visit Jodi @ Pleasant Home (if you don't already)! She is having a fun scrap-along and will help you get great joy and satisfaction out of those multiplying fabric scraps.
And just in case you are not like me (a budding hoarder who is on the road to reform), but you want to participate, I have some scraps to share!
Lots of pieces of Amy Butler's Midwest Modern and Daisy Chain collections left over from making this quilt. Enough to fill a bulging flat rate envelope.  Leave a comment (one) to enter.  This giveaway ends Monday, October 25 at midnight.  Have fun!

Ack! I LOVE this Amy Butler colorway! It was this colorway of Midwest Modern that brought me back to sewing after a few years hiatus. I haven't been back at it long enough to have any scraps to speak of.

Thanks!

Amazing as it seems, I have lots of AB but no Daisy Chain. Weird. I'm pretty sure your scraps would be happy with me. I'm sure I would be happy with them!
