Blue Scrap Giveaway!

Madison, scrap sorter extraordinaire

As you can see the blue scrap bag is overflowing! Today my granddaughter Maddy came over and helped me go through my scraps. She was just as bad as any quilter....."let's give this one away, oh keep that one, it's my favorite."


As you can see there is a lot!


She wanted to do a yoga pose with her embroidery thread......as you can see the fabric is as tall as an almost 7 year old.
She wanted to do the give away....uh her rules, so get ready........

##1

A scrap we found that looked like the number "1".....

#2

She took random.......

#3

pictures....

#4

in my sewing room...........

#5

and around....


the house.....

#6

can you tell.......

#7

from the angles?

#8

So vote for your favorite......

#9

quilt and you could be a winner!


For some reason she needed a picture of this too.

Leave a comment and a vote for your favorite quilt and some how or other there will be a winner! Maddy will pick the name on Wednesday August, 6. I promise you a nice big box of all kinds of blue scraps, some big and some small, some dark, lights and mediums, hand dyes and more.
Thank you for the indulgence, I love to promote creativity!
The Giveaway is now closed.

  1. Hello. I vote for #9. I like that little quilt,I like the reflection of one in the mirror and I like that you can see a little of Maddy in the other mirror. I love scraps and blue is my favorite color. Thanks for the chance.

  4. I like the colors of #7. I'd have voted for #10, but it didn't have a number (I'm impressed with anyone who has neat fabric!)

  5. I love blue in all its shades. Have since I was a kid. I do not know how to pick one quilt as a favorite, but if it must be just one I say #2. I love the randomness and the colors. I am not good at random. LOL
    The pictures of Maddy and the scraps are great. She looks like a fellow fabric lover to me.

  8. I can't get over how adorable Maddy is - and so much personality! I'm torn between #5 and #8. I love the blues in #5 but my vote is for #8 because I think it was a creative response to our guild challenge that year.

  18. I love the Pink/Blue hearts and I normally do not like hearts at all! I've been making a lot of string/scrap quilts lately so the blues would be a great addition to my string bags!

    ReplyDelete

  36. Now who wouldn't want a cutie patootie helper like Maddy?? Blue is her color!! I ALSO look good surrounded by blue!! (hint hint) ha!

    Ok, I'm torn between 5 & 8. I'm a bird watcher/lover so I was immediately drawn to the sweet birdies, but when my eyes saw # 8 they
    screamed CANDY CANDY!!!………but then there's # 7…….swwoon!

    ReplyDelete
  37. #7 Love the patchwork hearts with all the different fabrics, just puts a smile on your face. :) I like Maddy's album, good job taken pictures.

  38. My vote is #9! Love the colors and the simplicity of the "Love" quilt! Maddy's photos are better than most of mine and you are so lucky that you have a helper- all I hear, is "Mommmmmmmmmm, can you get your fabrics out of the playroom?"

  39. Maddy is so cute and creative! I have to say I like #8.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I like #7, no, wait, #9. OHHHHHH. I can't decide. I like them both. I wish I got to spend time with my granddaughter but I hardly ever get to see her. Maddy sure looks like she's having a great time! Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  41. That would be hard to choose, because they are all lovely, but I really like the one of someone peeking around the corner in the mirror. You must tell Maddy that she is super talented with both fabric and camera!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Wow, these quilts all use color so nicely so it's hard to choose.....but, I do LOVE #6!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I like anything beachy so I would choose #3. All of them look so happy though!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I tried to answer from your blog but it didn't work. I love your blog and I have gone back to the beginning. Maddy looked like she was having a lot of fun. I would like to vote for #3. I just love the shore.

  45. Oh Ijust love the ric-rac on No. 6--that is my choice for a favorite,,and blue--oooohhh, I don't have a whole lot of blue...hugs, Julierose

    ReplyDelete
  46. My favourite is that cute little house quilt- #8! Besides eight is my lucky number! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I think Maddie will be ready for her own blog soon, I like her style! It's so hard to pick a favourite but if I really had to I think I'd pick the one with Our Lady in a heart because that was the quilt I saw on Flckr and led me to your blog. If my name is chosen you can give my vote to Suz of Patchwork and Play, I have an overflowing scrap bin that really needs a good sorting out.

  48. Love them all. But #6 pull on my heart strings. Lovely girl.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I vote for #5. I am trying to save enough scraps for an ocean waves quilt so would love to win your giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Mi voto es para el # 3
    aun que es difícil decidir ,son todos tan bonitos
    ¡¡¡tanto color!!! pero el 3, ese mar me gusta tanto.....
    saludos

  51. I love #5! I too have a grandchild that hangs out in the "studio". He's almost 5, but a prolific sewer! Sits on my lap with his hands on mine while "he" sews and yells "PIN!" at the top of his lungs so the machine stops and he takes out the pin and puts it in the pin cushion! I think the blue scraps would be a wonderful project for a bird quilt like yours! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  52. #7- all those happy hearts make ME happy!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. It's so hard to pick. I love all of their scrappy happy themes! I guess my favorite would be the house quilt with the very fashionable lady of the house. Thanks for the awesome giveaway. My granddaughter and I need more scraps to play with! (Actually I sew and she plays - she is four). She would love a pile like this cover herself with.

    ReplyDelete
  54. The last thing I need is more fabric but I can't resist all that blue. Given that it's summer, my favorite is #3 - the beach chair and umbrella.

  58. Maddy, you are quite the helper and it was fun to see what pretty things caught your eye. Thanks for sharing those pictures. :o)

    Kelly, I'm loving #8 - the fussy cut lady in the doorway is plain awesome (so is the border) on this one. Oh, I think I would be adding your beautiful blue scraps to the piece I shared yesterday. Love me some blue scraps! ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love them all but number 2 is the bestest. What a fun day! Wish I had a great helper like that! She is SO cute and you're a great (and lucky) grandma! Stephanie

  60. Of course my favorite quilt is #9, which just happens to be my favorite number as well. I would love your scraps...you know me. But even more, I would love your quilting relationship with your granddaughter. Maybe someday I'll have that with mine.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Have to say that, while they're all beautiful, 7 is my favourite. So sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  62. #8 is my favourite, anything with a house and fussy cutting has me smiling :)

  65. I am unable to leave a comment on your blog but I would still like to enter the
    contest for the scrap giveaway.
    I love all the quilts but it is tie for my favorite. I love the fabrics in quilt
