Scrappy Giveaway!

Well, you know I promised to announce a winner of my BIG BOX of scraps tonight, right?  Right!  But first, let me share with you a photo sent to me this week by Darla.  Darla saw the pattern in an American Patchwork and Quilting magazine published in 2008.

She said it isn't scrappy, but it could be, couldn't it?  Those flying geese lend themselves to the use of scraps, don't they?  Doesn't this put you in the mood for autumn?

Our weather is changing this weekend; it's supposed to cool down quite a bit and we'll get rain tomorrow--just in time for my nephew's Eagle Scout ceremony and the wedding of my best friend's daughter!  Isn't that always the way?!  Still, the cool down is welcome.

Anyway, I randomly drew a winner to receive the box of scraps, and it's Colette, who linked up the first weekend and commented:  "I sewed until late, and had enough time to create a post and link up! Yippee!" Colette, please email me your mailing address and I'll get the scraps in the mail next week.  And for those of you who didn't win this time, don't despair!  I'll be doing this again soon, because my scrap bin is still overflowing with the leftovers of recent quilt projects!

Finally, Mister Linky is just below--please join us this week and post your scrappy project on your blog.  Once it's posted, enter your name and blog address in Mister Linky.  After that, please leave me a comment letting me know if you're interested in winning the next scrap box--I'll start "collecting" entries now but it will probably be a few weeks before I'm ready to draw another winner.  Please only ask to be entered in the next drawing if you have a US mailing address AND you've linked up with a scrappy project (or send me a photo I can post on my blog if you don't have one of your own).

Happy weekend and happy autumn!

Kim, what do you consider scraps? Can they be leftover strips from someone else? And what if I use a few bigger bits from my stash for backgrounds?
Just wondering if what I started this week could qualify.

I did it! I'm going to try to keep up with this and hopefully finish a quilt. said...

Wow that is so cool. I finished putting the binding on the quilt this afternoon. Thank you so much.

Put my name in for your scraps.

It's funny how appealing someone else's scraps are--count me in for the next drawing!
