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!

    That is a wonderful giveaway! I am starting to teach middle school girls to sew next week and know LOTS of projects that we could use such beautiful scraps for!!! Crossing my fingers!

  2. says

    I too feel that commitment to use my scraps…I think it is associated with guilt! ANYHOW, I would love to take some of that guilt…ohhh, I mean scraps off your hands. I don't have any like those! Too fun!

  3. says

    Thanks for a chance to win! I love the fact that you are making more than one Halloween project … I must confess to doing the same thing :-)

  4. says

    Oh I love, love, love scraps! They make me very happy! I've gotten to where I do alot of applique mini/doll quilts and scraps are perfect for those! :)

  5. says

    That quilt and those scraps are so gorgeous! I definately don't have enough scraps. I love the look of scrappy quilts but haven't made enough projects to have a huge variety of scraps. Thanks for a great giveaway!!

  6. says

    I don&#39;t have many scraps, but that&#39;s because before I start a project I map out EXACTLY how I&#39;m going to cut out the blocks with the very least amount of fabric possible. &#39;Tis the poor poor life of a college student.<br /><br />Beautiful fabrics. I love Amy Butler :)

  7. says

    I love your Halloween quilts and am excited to see them finished. I also love those Amy Butler scraps and would have a fun time playing around with them!<br /><br />kmthomas13 [at] yahoo

    Thank you so much for sharing your scraps. I am kind of new to sewing so I don&#39;t really have many scraps. I have see lots of great projects to make with scraps. After seeing your beautiful scraps, I could put them to very good use!

  9. says

    Your quilts are beautiful! I can give your scraps a good home – our quilt ministry uses lots of scraps to create quilts that go to people in distress! Thanks for the chance at some beautiful goodies….

  10. says

    I love scrap quilts but I don&#39;t have pretty quilts. I make quilts for other people a lot so I have fabrics from favorite teams, scooby doo fabric, etc…just very random. Maybe I should join the scrap vomit quilt along! hahaha

    I don&#39;t have many scraps – fabric in the UK is more expensive than in the US. I&#39;d love these, they are gorgeous.<br /><br />sarah.bowyer@ntlworld.com

  12. says

    I love scraps! Yours are truly beautiful! I am always so inspired by what people can make with scraps and I try my best to do the same! Thanks for the opportunity to receive some beautiful fabrics!

  13. says

    Those are my colors! Aquas and greens! Painted my sewing room these colors..so peaceful and serene…I love being in there! I would love to win those scraps! They would make me very happy!

  14. says

    I feel slightly guilty entering because goodness knows I have scraps…but…not AMY BUTLER scraps so count me in. <br /><br />Beautiful quilt.

  15. says

    Yay :) My scrap stash isn&#39;t taking over yet, as I only recently started quilting, but I am sure it will get to be like that! I am just that kind of person too…

    I love scrappy quilts too! I&#39;m new so I could use all the scraps you&#39;ve got. Thnx<br />pizzadelong@yahoo.com

  17. says

    I actually just made an across-the-body bag for a friend with the Amy Butler Daisy Chain line. So these scraps would be perfect to add to the ones I have already! That way I might have enough to make something cool. Here&#39;s hoping!

  18. says

    Sign me up! I can always use more scraps (or at least that is what I tell myself). Thanks for the giveaway.<br />spackattak7 at hotmail dot com

    Amy Butler is the reason I took up sewing a year ago…I would love to have some scraps from these lines I had missed out on! Perfect for the quilt-as-you-go project I am about to start. Thanks for sharing your goodies, Amy!

    Thanks for sharing some scraps – I&#39;m new to quilting so I&#39;m only starting my stockpile.<br /><br />Amy<br />amy-elisabeth@hotmail.com

    I want to attempt some of the pleasant home scrappy quilts – for which I need scraps. As a newer quilter, do not have scraps of my own – and Amy Butler scraps are lovely. Thanks for this lovely giveaway.

  22. says

    Yes, you&#39;re not alone, I&#39;m also a scrapaholic! Scrappy quilts and well, anything made with scraps are one passion of mine. The only problem is that at some point you may run out of scraps and have to cut actual yardage. LOL<br />Well, I&#39;m off to sign up for the Sew Scraps Along. Your scraps provided the extra &quot;nudge&quot; (read: temptation) I needed. Thanks for a lovely,

  23. says

    Beautiful quilt. Scraps are great. It makes you feel good when you can use up even the smallest. Also you can try out all kinds of combinations you&#39;d not put together unless it was a scrappy project.

  24. Trisha says

    The colors are fabulous, and I am really enjoying your blog. I&#39;d put the scraps in my first quilt, which is slo-o-wly moving along. Should I win you can reach me at tthorme at yahoo. dot com.

  25. says

    I would love to win these scraps – one of my favorite lines that I sadly didn&#39;t get enough of while it was available. Thanks for sharing! I feel the same obligation toward my scraps as you do.

  26. says

    Love scraps, but I&#39;m just getting started quilting so I don&#39;t have many yet! Thanks for the giveaway! Love your blog and the new basic quilting series – very helpful to me.

  27. says

    Oh I love scraps… I&#39;m a beginner so I don&#39;t have many, but I see myself going in that direction. You never know what you&#39;ll be able to use them for! I&#39;ve been wanting to make a table runner, but don&#39;t have enough scraps yet to make one. So this would be perfect! I&#39;ll be happy to give your scraps a nice new home.

    Your scraps would be super happy in my home and I promise I will put them to good use. They will help keep me warm.<br /><br />Melissa

  29. says

    Your very generous! I would L.O.V.E your scraps like they were my own. I&#39;m a fabric hoarder in general so I don&#39;t care if they are just scraps! Can&#39;t wait to see if I win!!!

    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&#39;t been back at it long enough to have any scraps to speak of. <br /><br />Thanks!<br /><br />ambernoel226 at gmail dot com

I&#39;m new to quilting and the world of blogs and FABULOUS fabrics, so I&#39;ve never used any of these amazing designer fabrics, so to win a variety of scraps to start out with would be amazing. :)<br /><br />Thanks for such a wonderful giveaway!<br />~Teresa

    Love those scraps! I always feel so guilty if I throw away scraps, hence, that is why my sewing room is bulging at the seams, but more scraps are always welcome!

  41. says

    Oh wow, the Amy Butler quilt looks great. And in my favourite colours too!! Loving it and excited about the giveaway. I love anything to do with fabric. There is just something about getting a great bundle of fabric in the mail! I go balistic with excitement! I&#39;m not too weird am I? LOL!!!<br />Anna<br />anna@ourinfo.biz

    I love scraps too, and enjoy watching those &quot;ugly&quot; pieces to see if they become a &quot;swan&quot; once they&#39;re combined with other lovelies. One never knows, huh?
