scraps up for grabs

So, my long time on-line friend Carolyn has too many scraps...and together we'd like to put them up for adoption. If you would like to win this stack of scraps, which would be perfect for a scrap vortex quilt, please leave me a comment in this post. In your comment, I'd love to hear what your favorite summer time activity is. This contest will be open to US residents only, due to shipping costs. I plan to pick a winner in a day or two. Good luck! :)

Happy, happy Monday to you!

In the summer I love to take walks with my husband, without our phones, so we can chat without any distraction. It's my favorite part of the day!

Aliceart said...

Me, me! Your scraps are bright and cheery, and I have a LOT of dull stash! My favorite summer activity is hiking although right now it's too hot for that here. ;-(

Michelle said...

Ginger said...

Quilting Grannie said...

Reading, hand piecing wuilt blocks.

Heather said...

I love taking the kids to a nearby slow-moving, very shallow river so they can play in the water. In second place is heading up to Lake Michigan!

beth said...

I would love to adopt these scraps! Just starting my stash. Favorite summer activity? If I HAD to choose just one, it would probably be hiking! Haven't done much this summer though, as most of my energy has been going toward growing a baby! :)

Guppymomma said...

My summer obsession is watermelons from the farmer's market. Perfect snacking while sewing.

Lori said...

My favorite activity is relaxing with friends. My scrap bins need some replenishing.

Annie said...

Movies in the park!

annemarie said...

Oh would I love these scraps. I love to stay in my air conditioned house and sew and crochet. I live in Texas and believe me it is too hot outside!!!

Alli said...

I'm still working on my scrap vortex quilt -- it's monopolizing my design wall!

My favorite summertime activity is driving fastfastfast home because the traffic is so good (fewer college kids on the road means noticeably better rush hour traffic). :D:D:D

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I am going to take some Summer time to re-explore some our county's museums and sites - many of them I haven't seen since my kids were little (in their 30's now).

Carol said...

Watching grandchildren in the pool. These so need to come to my sewing room.

Kimberly said...

Sprinkler trampoline!!! I sprinkler flung over the net surrounding the trampoline. Kids love it, and I get such a kick out of watching them!

Dianne Bienick said...

Long walks after dinner. Love the fresh air after being in an office all day.

Lovely scraps!!!
Dianne

Quilting QB said...

Ooh - I just cleaned out a scrap drawer and would love to fill it again. In the summer I love all of the extra time and sunshine with my kids - riding roller coasters and water slides, long bike rides and especially camping =)

Nicole said...

Favorite daily activity? Sitting on the beach at the end of the road, reading a book or sketching quilt ideas while my two littles amuse themselves! It's quiet time for Mama which makes everyone happy.

Alison said...

My favorite activity is spending time with family!

Kristie said...

I never seem to have enough scraps! My favorite thing to do during the summer is anything with my kids. My oldest is 22 and my youngest is 13. I love spending the extra time since they are out of school for the summer.

Denise Briese said...

My favorite summer time activity and barbecuing with my family

erica e said...

Fav summer time activity: sitting outside after dinner enjoying Popsicles or ice cream while the kids get out the last of their energy for the day.

Rainey Turlington said...

One person's scraps are another person's treasure! I love watching my dogs play in the lake during the summer. And quilting of course :)

Amy said...

I seem to only make quilts from scraps. I make a lot of zip bags and purses so I use the scraps for quilts. This is a great idea! Thanks
My favorite thing to do in the summer is sew. I have asthma and allergies and the heat gets to me. So I stay in and sew.

kbzelazny said...

Beautiful scraps! I love to eat barbecued food!

blocksandmore said...

This summer is all about babies.
Grand daughters are now just 1 month old.
When not watching their older brother who enjoys
hours being out walking and playing, its time reading
and pockets of stitch time.

La Brebis Roses said...

My favorite thing to do is sit outside and read a good book while I watch the kids play in the sprinkler.

valentinegirl said...

I'd just love those scraps!! My sister loves scrappy wonky stars and I would love to increase my scrap stash to help get her quilt started!! I am not a summer person and I'm melting in this TX heat. My favorite thing would be half price slush happy hour at Sonic. That's an activity, right?

CindyD said...

I have two favorites this summer - rereading the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon and quilting. Working on my first quilt after doing a lot of table runners and small items.

sharon said...

my favorite summer activity is sewing with my BFF on her enclosed deck at our camp - we have been seasonals at the campground since her daughter was in pre-school (she is 25 now) and we set up our Sewing Central each summer to make quilts and have fun. The scraps would be much appreciated in sewing central by us both.

Hooked on Quilting said...

My favorite thing is to nap on a raft in my backyard swimming pool. I'd gladly give it up the next hot day to work with the scraps!!! Heehee

Laurie said...

Swimming with my little boy! It's the first year he's LOVED swimming so we're soaking it up!

mom2three said...

My favorite summer activity is sailing on my parents boat. So relaxing! This summer is a little different because I broke my finger and I'm in a cast :( I think some scraps would cheer me up though. :)

littlebluebirdie said...

This is the summer of the pool! We're spending all the time we can on the water. Its too hot to do much else. :(

cynthia said...

I like to cocoon indoors away from the Texas heat and sew quilts for the cooler days which will come eventually.

Kate said...

My favorite thing to do in the summer is picnic!

Susan Coan said...

Going to the lake, grilling out and eating homemade ice cream!

Reading on the front porch in the evening once it's cooled off!

mindingmomma said...

My favorite summertime activity is going to camp. I "outgrew" it for a few years, but am able to return now for family camp with my kids. It is such a wonderful week for all of us. Best summertime activity ever!

Sara Miller said...

Scraps! Actually this weekend, my favorite activity was staying inside and cool in the air conditioning organizing my sewing room!

Kate said...

Such a great pile of scraps ! Summer is travel time for us - going to Alaska in a couple of weeks - fun, fun ! But, always, quilting.

Julie said...

My favorite summertime activity is heading to the beach. The sound of the waves is so restorative, it makes up for all the gear that must be lugged when bringing the kids!

Judy H said...

sitting on the front porch in the evening, with the family, just sitting and chatting and drinking iced tea.

Thanks a bunch! Staying cool is always a top priority.

Angela said...

I love long walks with my hubby. I just started quilting and enjoy that too!

Rachel said...

I'd use that stack to pursue my favorite summer activity -- making quilts. Nothing quite like draping a king sized quilt over your lap and stitching away as the temperatures near the triple digits. . .

Ann said...

Same as any other time of year, I like to sew and craft.

kristie said...

I plan to make a scrap vortex and these would be my jump start. I actually blogged about your quilt and that it is a must do. Thanks for the chance to win and my favorite summertime activity is staying in the a/c and sewing with my dogs all around me and the radio/iphone playing music. (the dogs don't mind my off key singing).

Mie said...

I love to bike down to the beach, take a break while listening to the waves, draw a little and then bike back home again.
What a lovely bunch of scraps.

Patty said...

My favorite summertime activity is canning! I love it and seldom tire of this amazing fun activity. Although I can year around, in the summer I can the most. Produce prices are good, when I don't have a garden I take advantage of the sales, and I love being able to take advantage of free fruit. Crab apple season is happening at the moment and I've already canned 2 batches of jelly for Christmas giving; plus I have enough juice to make a 3rd batch. My two favorite activities are cooking and sewing :O)

Alyssa said...

My favorite summer activity is spending time with my boys. I love to take them places on Saturday and explore new places in our city.

sherry said...

Finding ways to enjoy fresh ripe peaches. That would be motivation for starting a scrap vortex quilt.

Julie said...

I have been sewing bags for the poor. If i win this it would be great to make more bags. I have till September, So far I made over 40 bags. Thanks for the giveaway.

LindaC said...

Lisa Boyer said...

Quilting, reading and cooking. Actually, those are also my favorite Winter, Fall and Spring activities, too! I save knitting for Fall and Winter, though. I just LOVE scrap giveaways--so much better than those brand new fabric giveaways! It's like a treasure chest. Thanks for the giveaway!

Jess said...

As funny as it sounds I still love catching fireflies with my young cousins. Jessica.breidinger@yahoo.com

Love scraps!

Ruth Clapp said...

That pile of scraps looks very different from my current pile. Winning it would provide great deal of variety to my products. Right now I am making pincushions but wills oon move on to some birch trees.

AndrewandErin Barnes said...

My favorite summer activity had been taking my dogs to the dog park that has a stream right through it and dog friendly and splashing around.

As a newlywed, my other new fav activity is relaxing after a day of work on our porch and enjoying the evening with a glass of wine or juice!

Nancy said...

Wow! What a wonderful offer. My favorite summer activity is going to music camp for adults.

Patty said...

our favorite summer activity is car shows. We just bought two more cars to take. I guess that means we will have to hire a driver. Your scraps are beautiful but if you draw my name please choose another cause I have more fabric than any one quilter needs. I have started cutting my smaller scraps into squares and rectangles in various sizes with the Vortex quilt in mind though. Thanks anyway for the opportunity.

Orchard Cove Photography said...

Oh what a fun treat this would be! My favorite summertime activity these days is spending the day at the (rocky) beach with my 20 month old, Husband, and 2 yellow labs - the dogs and my daughter love amusing themselves making piles, swimming, retrieving sticks, and just generally enjoying the warm weather that is well deserved after a long cold Vermont winter!!

Thank you for this opportunity :)

craftygramma said...

One of my new fun (?) summer activities has been to teach my 6 yr old granddaughter to sew on her own (new) machine! She's made a maxi skirt, pillowcase, thread catcher (her own design), and a row of tumblers for a quilt so far!

She could really use some scraps as I can't keep up!!

thanks

Ohhh I love scraps! In the summer we like to take the family hiking along a gorge near own home, I never know what we are going to see and I love hearing the little squeals of excitement over each toad, fish and bird we see! If it's hot, we just hike in the water :)

the momma said...

Summer ~ I like *not* having to do school (we homeschool, and I think Momma enjoys the summer break more than the kids do ;-) I have been sewing every chance I get ~ which usually adds up to maybe 2 hrs a day.

Happy Sewing ~ Tracy

My summer love is raising lots of veggies and then harvesting and preparing them for "feasts" with children and grands and then dining outdoors along the Mississippi River. Eating outdoors many nights a week is what's special about summer.Love your offer for winning a great bundle of scrap treasures.

I have scrap envy! I could snuggle with that pile for a long time! Besides being able to sleep in late during the summer, my favorite summer activity is taking long walks with my husband and dog. It sure beats short walks in freezing cold, snowy weather!

✾Jamie Lee Cooley✾ said...

Oh, I love other people's scraps! It's so much fun to use fabrics I either didn't get a chance to buy or that are not something I would normally pick. Scrappy quilts are my favorite!

I love going to the pool with my kids in the summer. I have a 3 month old baby right now so we don't go as often as I'd like but I'm sure next year we will be there everyday!

Suzanne Daniels said...

Going to the pool! It was 102 today. Hot, hot, hot and humid. The pool is about the only thing that cools us down.

Thanks for a great giveaway.

Debbie Leschisin said...

My favorite 2015 Summer activity has been biking with my husband and our little yorkie poo, Lana. She is almost 8 and has been enjoying seeing the countryside in the pull behind trailer.

Laura said...

My favorite summer activity is sleeping on the bed/swing on the back screened porch.

nkb said...

Just being in the sun and feeling the warm on my skin...and going barefoot

Jen Conlon said...

The beach! And the pool. And vacation.

What a fab giveaway!!! I just finished my #1 fav summer Activity - 10 days of camping and hiking in the ADK Mts of NY. I miss it already :(

Sherry VF said...

The Vortex Scrap Quilt looks like an easy (relatively) way to use up scraps. I've seen a few of them, based on your Quilt Along, online.
My favorite summertime activity is our family reunion. We each take turns planning it at different locations but the best part is just catching up with everyone.
svonfumetti at yahoo dot com

Mary said...

Other people's scraps are always so much fun!! My favorite summer activity is eating and sharing all the wonderful fresh fruits and vegetables that taste so much better from the garden. We had fresh corn on the cob last night and blackberries with ice cream tonight. Yum!!!

Pennysqueezer said...

I love to spend the summer working in my garden! Would love these scraps to play with all winter when I am quilting!

Brenda said...

My favorite summer activity is almost anything that doesn't involve yard work or pushing my big red mower around. (Sock knitting and popsicle eating are at the top of the list!)

Linda A said...

Don't know that it's activity; but just getting without the alarm except on Sunday. Cutting fabric and working on stash. As said too hot in TX. Thanks, ldakins@gmail.com

Andrea said...

Catching up on Netflix/DVR and drinking a glass of rosé.

Becky Mc said...

We have a small cabin in Alaska & both my husband & I LOVE it up here. Just about every summer is spent salmon &/or halibut fishing for him & quilting for me. Lovely indeed :)
I'd love to have those scraps. Thanks for the giveaway.

Suzanne Carlisle said...

I love to be outside! Walking, riding bikes, just relaxing. And, of course, quilting! I currently have 3 scrappy projects in progress, your give away would be a welcome influx of variety!!

Thank you for the opportunity
suze9395@gmail.com

Carol W said...

I like to walk on the Riverwalk, and go for picnics.

Lynne Tilley said...

Oh, random scraps are almost better than a brand new FQ bundle! So many surprises await! Summers for me are very hot here in Texas. I love to be outside, but it's difficult when it's 100 degrees. I like to travel to cooler spots and visit out of town family to enjoy that.

Kristen said...

Anytime it isn't too humid being outside playing with my kids or hiking. When it is really humid or storming I want to be inside sewing!

wholesomemidwestern said...

How generous of you! My favorite summer activity is going to a Cincinnati reds game! :)

ellen fischer said...

Evenings on the porch and munching on a piece of watermelon!

Chris Sullivan said...

sounds crazy but I love to mow grass. Kind of an instant gratification thing LOL

Patti P. said...

My Favorite thing to do in the Summer is lay in a hammock & read! If it's near an ocean that's even better!

Christine Symmes said...

My favorite summer activity is gardening and reading quilting books! Those look like some great scraps!
Thanks for the chance to win them!
:)

Susan Clakson said...

It has been so hot & dry this summer & the air quality so poor so much of the time that I have been staying indoors most of the time. But it gives me a lot of time to quilt & read, my 2 favorite activities. I've recently been doing a lot of scrappy quilts & am running out of scraps, so I'd love to win. Thank you for the opportunity.

Kris Van Allen said...

Oh how I would love those scraps! I just bought some EPP templates in both clamshell and coffin/lozenge that I would be so excited to use on the scraps! We put an above ground in pools and a deck in our backyard at the end of last summer, so this year my favorite activity is to care for (skim, vacuum, chemical) the pool and enjoy it with my home-from-college kids and husband!

Therese said...

A favorite summer time activity is visiting the grandsons! And trying to catch up on my projects, which will never happen!

Patty said...

I love scraps! Thanks for the chance to win some. My favorite summertime activity is swimming--nothing better than a nice dip in the pool on a hot day!

Water skiing under the midnight sun in Fbks., AK. I raised my kids now in their late 30's and early 40's at the lake. My son went to college in Greely, CO. His fraternity thought they'd take the little Alaska(Igloo) boy out one weekend and teach him how to ski.....boy, did they learn a thing or two. LOL We actually beach started, which takes a bit of skill...don't think you can do that in the lower 48 with so many rules. I don't have time this yr to ski, but I did last yr at 62 yrs old. lol

In the summer I love to have breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the deck. Enjoying the sounds of nature and all the flowers. Best time of the year for me.

Going to 4-H fair to watch my grandkids show their animals and working in my yard. I like to use scraps to make scrappy quilts.

I'm not sure you're ready to send all these scraps to France !!! But nevertheless I try to win.

At the present Time, it is so hot on our place ( Alsace , east of France ) that my pleasure is to stay quitte and make hexies with crochet for a "weekender blanket" from the blog of Cherry Heart ( UK). Easy and fun to do.
Thank you

Michele from France.

Riding around in the jeep with the top down with the addition of a 7 eleven Slurpee!
I too have a scrap pile that is not exciting to me since I have used the materials on other projects. Have you ever done a scrap swap? Everyone could receive a new pile of scraps!
