Now, on to the meat of the post.
I'm a few
I donated a pile of quilts to donate to the local guild at the last meeting for some of their charity efforts. I had a fun time making these quilts, but we don't have a need for them right now, and their existence has been properly documented in photos.
And I also sent a small pile of unfinished projects to Sarah. Again, I enjoyed working on these projects, but I haven't found the inspiration/kick in the pants to finish them in the past couple of years.
this post for evidence. It's become pretty apparent in the last few weeks that this monthly jelly roll quilt project isn't exactly going to help my little scrap-hoarding problem. Yes, I'm using a jelly roll to make a quilt each month, but I'm not using up the entire jelly roll each month. There have been a fair amount of leftover scraps from each project thus far that I have saved. Because I am crazy.
In an effort to get some of the crazy out of my sewing room and into someone else's, I'm giving away a few sets of scraps.
Group 1 - I save all my "cutaways" from flying geese units, snowball blocks etc. This set of cutaways came from this oversized Schnibbles quilt. I think the fabric group was called Spring Meadow. It's a fun and happy set of fabrics for anyone who's welcoming the warmer weather and sunshine with open arms.
Group 2 - This set of scraps is kind of hard to see, but it's from my first ever (and only so far) sampler quilt. I love this quilt and fabric. It makes me think of everything I love about fall. I also have a little more yardage of the fabric, so I have no need to hoard all these itty bitty pieces. The fabric group is Sonnet by April Cornell.
Group 3 - These scraps are from last month's jelly roll project. Since I did my own thang for the border, I don't need to save the 15" that remain at the end of all 40 jelly roll strips for the border, as the pattern dictates. 15" x 40 strips = 600" worth of jelly roll strips to play with. Maybe make some of those Granny Squares that are all the rage? I'm also throwing in all the "cutaways" from the block construction. The fabric group is Botany by Lauren and Jessi Jung.
Group 4 - Finally, these scraps are leftover from my Glam Garden Gala dresden quilt. I thought they'd make the beginnings of a great confetti quilt (like the confetti block I made for Jules), but I'm not entirely in love with the fabrics for this block, mainly because I can't decide on a background fabric color. I'll save this quilt pattern idea for another pile o' fabric scraps.
So, if there are any fellow scrap enthusiasts out there who'd like a chance to own some of these scraps, just leave a comment on this post, ranking the groups of scraps in order of your preference.
For an EXTRA entry, leave an additional comment, letting me know if you've enjoyed a good (new or old) movie lately and what it was. My Netflix queue is looking a little tired.
I'll close down the giveaway on Monday night and announce the 4 winners thereafter.
