fig tree scrap giveaway

First off, thanks for all the fabric love in my last post! I'm so excited about it and I appreciate your kind response and excitement more than I can say!

Well, believe it or not, I THINK I have too many scraps! I can almost hear a collective "What??!"
As much as I would like to be able to sew them all, it's just not realistic. My craft room is getting crowded, so I'm putting these up for adoption. Most, if not all, of these scraps are from various lines by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda. If you would like a chance to win these scraps, please leave me a comment in this post. In your comment, I'd love to hear what is on the top of your bucket list (quilted or non-quilt related is great!) OR what is one thing that you would do if you knew you wouldn't fail? (I'm turning 40 later this year, thus the introspective questions!) It's so much fun to read your responses!

The scrap drawing will be open to the US only, due to shipping costs. Since I don't want to leave out my international readers, this will be a dual giveaway. For the international readers, I will pick one winner as well. For that winner, I'd be happy to send any 5 (of my) PDF patterns of their choice.

I'll pick winners later this week!

Happy Monday to you!

Hi, top of my bucket list is to go to Antarctica. I'm hopeful that I will get there one day! Thanks so much, Melanie [I'm an international reader]

Brenda Sanderson said...

Just redoing my sewing room after 25 years of the same old style. Now, I will be able to find that one piecenter of fabric that I need for my new project. I Believe it could be in a scrape bin! What do you think?

Lois said...

On the top of my Bucket List is travel!

Debbie said...

I love fig tree fabrics. This year I am resisting all quilt alongs and just working on stuff I have been wanting to make. I also am working on quilting some of the stuff I have already made. I am 3/4's of the way done with the quilt for my bed.

Sherry said...

I am wanting to start my Snapshots Quilt. I have all of my fabric, now to find the time. I love Fig Tree fabrics.

Montymoo said...

Since I'm a newer quilter and totally obsessed, I can only think along those lines. lol So, I want to learn how to paper piece (not English). I have zero spatial awareness, so after seam #1, it all goes down the drain. lol

Heather said...

I really want to enter a quilt in a big quilt show like Paducah or Houston. Just being juried in would be a dream come true!

Lars Sone said...

I have so many ideas for quilts from scraps and would love to take yours!

Thanks!

I would go pick lottery numbers. (assuming not fail means I would automatically win)

I would love to set up my own quilting space..it's definitely on my bucket list. I'd love to have a special place for all my fig tree projects that I have. LOVE LOVE LOVE Fig Tree!!

Diane said...

I am new to quilting and do not have a stash. I do so love Fig Tree and would be thrilled with scraps. Thank you.

Jennifer said...

I can kill two birds with one stone by becoming an International Sign Language interpreter. I could continue my work as an interpreter and travel the world as I do so! Thanks for the giveaway!

My top on the list is a quilt for my dad, I have yet to find a pattern that I think will be wonderful like him.

Sue said...

Thanks for the extremely generous offer to include international readers in your giveaway. If I had heaps of money I would buy a country estate and turn the acreage into a gorgeous garden. i think I would hire famous garden designer, Paul Bangay, to set it out for me. Maybe I could hire him to work in it with his shirt off, ;).

Anonymous said...

Who knew scraps would excite so many people? LOL I loved your questions. On my bucket list is a cruise to Australia and back - with a room that has a balcony. Or maybe that's a dream. ;)

If I knew I couldn't fail I would buy a long arm. Thanks for sharing.

Love these fabric scraps- so many options! Thank you!

I feel like I'm leaving my run a bit late...but I still really want to do a cross quilt! I also want to hand quilt again, I did handquilt a quilt once, but feel I might know a bit more now. Thanks for your gorgeous blog, and the chance to win a lovely prize. Sue (New Zealand)

Chris said...

Good morning. I would love to have a better range of scraps to work on more 'made fabric" a la Victoria Findlay Wolfe.

Barbara said...

Top of my list is a quilt for my husband's surgery recovery in July. Second is a quilt for our tent as soon as I can get him recovered and out into the forest for real healing.

jetvic said...

We've moved so many times lately that I want to get my love of quilting back. I think I lost it in the moves!

I would like to visit the Pacific Northwest again.

Thanks for the chance to win some Fig Tree scraps.

Dondi Murdock said...

If I knew I wouldn't fail, I would, uh, um, perform more piano music publicly. I get so nervous! I play beautifully at home...

I am sewing much faster than I used to now that I am more organized in my life. I still have yet to keep one quilt I have made. Hopefully, with the Moda Block finish coming up this fall, that plan changes. That quilt I am keeping for moi!

You are so wonderful! I really miss you in March! I can see why you need the time, though.

Amy Knauf said...

If I knew I would not fail, I would love to open my own quilting business. How much fun would it be to quilt for others every day?! Thanks for this super generous giveaway - I LOVE Fig Tree Fabrics!

Laura Lane said...

Debbie Lou said...

Hi! I would love to play with your scraps. I, too, have a lot, but I intend to work my way through them. I am part of a group that makes quilts for Hospice patients, so they would be put to good use. Thanks for thinking of us! Happy Quilting!

sue said...

My bucket list for this year has an improv quilt on it. Solids. I am excited to see Sherri Lynn Wood's new book about improv.

Aleta said...

I would like to make a double wedding ring quilt. I have made table runners that size, but not a full size quilt!

Charlene Laudin said...

I so want to make a scrappy Dresden quilt, of course its on a list a mile long of want to do's.

Aunt LeAnn said...

I would love to enter a quilt in the AQS show in Paducah. Those quilts just leave me awestruck.

Marie Caesar said...

A new dress for daughter's high school graduation.

Amy Brown said...

I'm trying to finish my first queen-size quilt. I've returned to quilting this last year by following all the amazing designers.
It just sucks you right in!
Slowly building my scrap stash. This is my third attempt at leaving a comment, hopefully it works this time! :0)

Patty said...

My bucket list has a wish to spend time with my grandchildren. The only problem is I have no grandchildren and none in sight. I hope that changes eventually.

Laurie said...

The top of my bucket list would be:
To be creative every day, thats when I am the most happy.

Also spending time with family :)
Thanks for being so generous

If I knew i would be sucessful I would try to make quilting my job full time. The scraps are amazing, I would finish a scrappy trip quilt!

Deb@asimplelifequilts said...

Love Fig Tree... my big May task is getting MT Paper under control at my house. I've been procrastinating on filing & organizing paper for far too long!

Karm PD said...

I really want to make a crazy quilt where I hand stitch the blocks in the style that is traditional to Fogo Island quilts. These quilts are beautiful and I would love to have this traditional skill and knowledge. I have made a crazy quilt but done the decorative stitching by machine. I love to take scraps and turn them into colorful quilts that have no order but yet are cohesive in their disorder.

I am trying hard to finish a mystery quilt, and then I have some quilt tops I would like to try quilting myself. I am attempting to better utilize my scraps, too!

JoZina said...

Is it too late to enter? I love love love scraps, of course, I do have a "FEW" of my own, but diversity is the spice of quilting.

jesop84 said...

Unfortunately there are so many quilts I'd like to make, but the one I would really truly like to do is a double wedding ring quilt. After that would be a grandmother's flower garden.

lej619 said...

Did you really say you have to many scrapes???
I did not think that was possible!! but now that i think about my scrapes, i too have too many. But I would still love to win some of yours!!!
As for what I am working on, i am in desperate need of cutting out a quilt for a new grand baby that is due in a couple of weeks. And just can't seem to get motivated to do it. :(( might help if i could get of this computer!! hahaha
thanks for the chance to win!!

Grandma said...

If I knew I wouldn't fail, I'd make that double wedding ring quilt--maybe with Moda fabrics!

thanks
Laurel

Lynn said...

If I knew I couldn't fail, I'd be a surfer or a girl singer in a band or an author or an international spy, oh the possibilities!

Patti said...

Such a generous giveaway. I'm outside the US so would love to have a few of your patterns. :)

phxquilt said...

One of my bucket list items will be fulfilled this year with a cruise to Australia and New Zealand. At almost 70 I know my time for long distance traveling is getting smaller so I'm glad we're doing it now. Your scraps are lovely.

Boulder Block Makers said...

Both are great questions! Top on the quilting bucket list is to finish a large portion of my WIPS this summer (I should join in on your Finish it up Friday!)so I don't feel so guilty starting new projects.

kh said...

Wow! What a great book! The smallest scrap I keep are 1.5 inch squares. I cut them as I cut other projects. I'm planning a 100 quilt, which uses a 10x10 of squares that are 1 inch finished, or 1.5 inches unfinished. Any random scrap will do.

Greetings from Finland! If I knew I would not fail, I would make a living out of sewing and crafts. I have dozens of ideas and want-to-do's on my list, but not enough time to create them all. Also, If i actually had everything done, I would not have the Place to keep it all, so I'd have to sell. :D

Thanks for the great blog, I love your vibrant colours and endless ideas of using the scraps.

At the top of my bucket list is to create enough fabric crafts to be able to sell in this year's quilt faire. I have already started so I'm working on accomplishing this goal. If I weren't afraid to fail I would sell my house and move to Maui where my girls live so I could see them and their children on a regular basis. I so miss them. I'm afraid financially of doing this but it is in my heart's desire to do this soon.

I'm working on some small give-a-way projects, such as finger thimbles & mug rugs! Definately using a bunch of scraps!!!

Nancy Sutton said...

Amanda Jean! I am eager to win the scraps to make the purse from the pattern you gave me!!!! :)

suzannevh said...

On my quilting bucket list is Third Weekend in October - I love autumn leaves and this pattern is so beautiful but it also looks like it could be a daunting puzzle to put together.

frau z said...

As "beginner with little experience" sewing a curvy pattern is on the top of my bucket list. The "Single Girl" pattern is closest to my heart, so this will probably be the one. But before, I have to clean up the sewing room. Thanks for the giveaway! I'm an "international entry". Love, frau z.

If I knew I couldn't fail, I'd open a sewing school/sewing machine repair business/quilt shop. On a personal note, my #1 bucket list item is to learn to hurdle, as in track. Thanks for giving us a chance to win this book.

Shannon Wallace said...

Getting my home organized and back to "normal" is at the top of my list (we just moved)...so that I can quilt once again! Happy Early 40th Birthday, AmandaJean!

Anonymous said...

I think Stardust is my favorite too! I 'save' tiny pieces but I haven't used any of them yet. They are in a box that I am planning on giving away one day. :P

Sarah Jardine said...

2nd Comment - Amanda Jean - I just read an article in the May 2015 Canadian Living (40th Anniversay Issue) about turning 49 & making a memorial quilt. The main idea of the author's undertaking was to reach out and reconnect with friends and family. She used many different tools - FB, phoning family members, etc. The memorial quilt was an active "log" of what she discovered on the journey. Four key discoveries she made depending on who she contacted: i. People change; ii. People don't change; iii. you've changed; and iv. nothing changes! Wishing you every good thing as you turn 40.

Nena said...

If I knew I wouldn't fail? Wow, that's an amazing question. I'd solo kayak on level 4 whitewater! On the bucket list? Take my family to Washington DC and really have the time to explore. Thank you!

Stitches By Cindy said...

I'd love to go hiking in washington state with my son. Would be at the top of my bucket list. Quilt related - I'd love to get the spider web quilt done I've been working on for a year.

Karen said...

I want to finish sewing the rows of a quilt top together...today, I hope!

Debbie Faber said...

I am binding a mystery quilt I did around Christmas time. Pieced and machine quilted by me...so proud of the results

Crystal_235 said...

I would love to win this! I have so many things on my list. Right now I'm working on a disappearing 9 patch black, red and white quilt. I have a few bags I would like to try making. I would love to make an ABC quilt for my youngest son.

Carole-Jayne Watson said...

I've never done *anything* knowing I wouldn't fail and I'm 70 and I ruled out learning to ski last year! But I'd love to be more adventurous in my quilt designs. These gorgeous fabrics would be just super to help me! Thank you or such a nice giveaway!

Jeannie said...

I want to get my sewing room better organized so I can better enjoy a new quilt project. Some new fabric would just be the ticket to get me motivated!

CraftedbySharon said...

Someday I hope to walk the Camino de Santiago (The Way of St. James). On my quilting bucket list is to one day tackle an Around the World pattern.

Virginia Sattler-Reimer said...

I'm trying to have my space the way I want it, to stop thinking of someday and make it how I want it now, so I can enjoy it. :)

EmpressC said...

I'd love to make a quilt that would win a prize at a quilt show, with very intricate quilting.

hydeeannsews said...

One of my bucket list quilt items is to have enough scraps to make some of the wonderful quilts in Sunday Morning Quilts! I've been saving my binding triangles for Up and Away, as well as other pieces for more of the quilts. Also, I just got Quilt Lovely and would love to make most everything in there but all the templates and appliqué are going to be long term projects for me. Either way, scraps definitely fit in! Great giveaway. :)

Who-lee-uh said...

I would like to be a mom. That is a big one on my bucket list. Also I hope I don't fail so it works for both questions. I currently working on my WIP (I KNOW) and I hope I will never run out of things to make

I've seen so many gorgeous paperpiece patterns, I think now is the time to learn it.

smithcindyk said...

I want to figure out how to have a balance between work and home. I enjoy my job but not when it leaves no time for quilting.

Johanna said...

I'd love to be brave and publish some of my quilt patterns that I've designed through the years!

Deairdre said...

I want to start hand quilting a quilt I finished last year.

Frederique said...

Hi from France! On top of my bucket is a great wallhanging quilt I just start, with a lot of green fabrics!

Carol C Thomas said...

Looks perfect to learn how to do a table runner, wall hanging, pot holders.

Rose Santuci-Sofranko said...

I long to see an ocean and snow covered mountains...I've never seen either...and I'd love to take a train all the way across this great country of ours, and back a different route. Thanks and God bless! ILuvTheEucharist @ aol.com

Lyndsay Myers said...

I really enjoy seeing everything your able to create so quickly each week. The fabric is so beautiful!
Our one-year old is just learning to walk and I want to go camping as a family. Maybe later this summer...
