A Different Kind of Scrappy Day

I don't have anything to show you from my Pie in the Sky project, although I AM planning to spend a little time cutting squares on Sunday.  However, I DO have a scrappy little tale.

You'll remember my Scrap Basket Sunday basket, right?  Well, when I finished the Merry, Merry Snowmen quilt top and then the Schnibbles Canasta quilt top, I added more leftover scraps to the basket, so now it's overflowing once again.


Then, in gathering oranges and blacks for the Twister Jack project, I pulled open my large scrap drawer . . . and found it too was stuffed pretty full.


And just to GET TO the scrap drawer, I had to move the bag of fabric that was leftover from the Bunny Hill Autumn House quilt project.  And I figured it was about time I redistributed those fabrics amongst my other stash fabrics, and of course there were more scraps mixed in with the larger pieces.


So all in all, I ended up messing around with scraps for a couple hours, and I thought with all these scraps that don't seem to lessen despite the scrappy projects I make, maybe it's time to stuff a Priority Mail box full of scraps and send if off somewhere.


Ah, but where should I send it?  Not everyone likes scraps, of course.

So what I thought I'd do is for anyone who signs up on Mister Linky (yesterday's post) to show a scrappy project they're working on this week or signs up next week AND leaves me a comment saying they'd like to be entered to receive MORE SCRAPS, I'll enter them in a drawing.  I've stuffed the box with a mix of stuff, including some Christmas and Halloween fabrics, and there are several large chunks of fabric in there--probably not quite fat quarter size but close--or maybe more than a fat quarter, but cut longer and narrower.  I'm really not sure.  All I know for sure is that there's a pretty good selection in the box.

I DO have to limit the giveaway to those of you in the U.S., however, since it's a U.S. Mail Priority Box--and sending something this heavy outside the U.S. would cost a lot.  Sorry.

What if you link up and post a scrappy project both weeks?  Then you can enter twice and have a better chance.  So remember to link up AND leave me a comment asking to be entered.  I'll announce next weekend when I'll close the entries and draw a winner.  In the meantime, happy scrapping and I'll look forward to seeing what you make!

Your scraps would be oh so welcome at my home. I used to admire scrappy quilts "knowing" I could NOT make one. Times have changed. I love scrappy and I CAN do it! Happy quilting.

Kim I would live those scraps for a charm quilt I have been working on for 3 years now.

When I first started quilting, I would hear my friends say they liked a particular color fabric, or they really liked polka dots or tone on tone, but I could never figure out what color was my favorite or what pattern on fabric I liked best. When I made my first scrappy quilt, I knew why ~ I liked them all! I use everything in my quilts ~ doesn't matter what color. Thanks for sharing your blog. I would love to take those scraps off your hands! Ronda

I can always use more scraps. I'm always making more quilts to give away. Today I'm going to start a quilt for myself finally! The first one ever I'm going to keep.

I have lots of scraps already, but can't resist the chance to win someone else's scraps! Thanks for the giveaway.

Well Kim I'm not sure how to linky things up! I am working on the Star Surround quilt along at Happy Quilting! I love scrappy and am getting more and more in my stash! Yippy!

I should probably NOT want your scraps, seeing as my own boxes are stuffed full/overflowing...but what the heck! Someone else's scraps are a treasure! ;)
