bright birch tree kit giveaway

I put together a little bright birch tree starter kit that I'd like to send to a new home. I've collected a huge variety of small pieces (and they are small) but they are perfect for my bright birch trees pattern! The great thing is, most of the pieces are ready to sew up...very little trimming will be required. The kit includes a copy of the print pattern and a tall pile of small scraps...just add the background fabric of your choice! If you don't like small scraps, please do not enter. (Seriously!) :) If you do like small scraps and you'd like a chance to win, please leave me a comment on this post. In your comment, I'd love to hear what quilt project you are closest to completing. (I'm anxious for a finish, can you tell?) I'll pick a winner in a few days. US mailing addresses only this time, please! Thank you!

Oh love scrappy quilts- the scappier the better! I have completed 2 baby quilts and need to start on one more for my newest grandchild coming in August. Recently completed an appliqué walll hanging with lots of quilting on my DM. Great practice quilting.

I love small scraps and want to make that pattern. I just finished binding a scrappy quilt made from my son's old Air Force uniforms.

Delora Rankin said...

Cute pattern. I'm close to finishing a quilt by Sue spargo and a quilt for my granddaughter. Would love to try making a mini.

Renee Newbanks said...

I am just getting started on scraps. You have been an amazing inspiration for keeping all of them. I sm currently working on a baby quilt for a friend and am planning a scrappy border for at least one of the layers.

I'm working on memory quilts from my dads shirts for my siblings and myself. Three are done and the blocks are made for the fourth so I'm pleased with my progress. Can't wait to give these to my sisters and brother!

We use to have birch trees in our front yard and I've always thought they would be a great incorporating into a quilt. Your scrap pile is inticing and I'd love to make the quilt. I always look forward to opening your message. Thanks for all your inspirations. I'm just starting a new project---an airplane quilt for a friend.

Jusmom1 said...

I've just finished the flimsy on my first ever charity quilt...and it's scrappy with tiny pieces! I can't wait until it is all finished so I can send it off! Thanks for this great giveaway!

SheriR said...

I would be thrilled with your pretty scraps and Birch Tree pattern! Your scrap projects are so fun. I hope to finish a Dresden Plate quilt I'm making my daughter who will be married the end of August!!! The Dresdens are all made of scraps from her Grandma's stash. I finished binding it last night and today I'll quilt the negative space around the plates. Does anyone else bind early? It sometimes really works well for me. :D

I want to make a scrap vortex quilt and starting with your scraps would be the ultimate fun. I'm closest to finishing a pair of baby quilts for two sisters-in-law who are due this fall.

Sharon Janhonen said...

I just love Birch trees but am allergic. Finally birch trees that won't make me sneeze!! Making an angel quilt for my four year old granddaughter--just the quilting and binding to finish.

I just love this pattern and it is definitely on my list to make. I'm the closest to finishing a quilt with an oriental flair. Just need to finish quilting it and then bind it. Just moved so I have to set my sewing room up yet.

Joy Flora said...

I've been wanting to make my best friend- KP a quilt for some time. This is the perfect pattern- reminds me of our walk at nature centers and talking books! I don't have the fabric stash that you do Amanda- so I have been putting it off- but if I win- this would help me get it done!

Patti said...

You can't imagine how many times I have looked at that pattern on your sidebar and wanted to order it but always think no I have to finish this or that first. My WIP have really gotten out of hand! But who does not love scraps? Right now I am working on a Christmas quilt for my daughter.

Diane Beavers said...

This sure has generated lots of interest. I have been very motivated. Three weeks ago I listed 11 projects in various stages of completion. I only allowed myself to work on these projects. I did switch from one to another when I was bored, but I Have finished 7 and the rest are very close to being finished. I think hearing the exciting news that we are expecting a new granddaughter helped me stay focused. I would love this free giveaway because it would be perfect for our new baby.

Thanks for everything you do!

Does a LARGE bin of scraps count? I can not get myself to toss any scrap larger than 1" x 2". I can't. And I love your colorways. My current quilt is a Hexagon Pelt with 2" hexies finished. Have 2/3 of the pelt done and can not wait for the long weekend to finish it.
So send your yummies my way?

Beth Farrell said...

Hi. I have been following your blog for a long time and always enjoy seeing the projects you are working on and completed. I love your Sunday Morning Quilts book and am collecting my own treasured scraps! It would bring me great joy to make your Birches quilt with your treasured scraps!

I am currently working on a 4th of July half square
triangle table runner. I am always in the mood to do holiday projects around the holiday season at hand!

Y Blanchard said...

Yesterday I machine quilted my curvy log cabin Christmas table runner and today, the last day of school here in Waterloo Ontario, I can put on the binding before my real work as a stay-at-home-mom begins. School's out and it's GO time! The birch trees would be a lovely September project to look forward to.......

Crafty and Frugal said...

I love quilting and I'm fairly new at it so I don't have a lot of unfinished projects. I've been quilting for two years and I have a quilt top I did when I first started that I need to finish but that's it. This is a beautiful giveaway. I recently retired and would love to be able to do a quilt like this one.
Thank you for the opportunity and chance to win it.

Andrea York said...

Cutting binding for an Olaf quilt and just finished a small tied quilt.

Wendy Tuma said...

The quilt I'm closest to finishing? A wedding quilt, which should be back from my longarmer soon; then just the binding and it's done. I'd love to give this pattern a go with your little scraps -- I just received a pack of Riley Blake solids that I think could work with this!

mc76904 said...

So very pretty! My closest finish is a "bee" quilt. Just have to do the quilting and binding. A couple of good days on the machine and it will be in the books!

Unknown said...

I love scraps. I can't seem to bring myself to throw any little pieces away. My closest finish right now is my X-files quilt. It was a quilt-a-long put on by Fandom In Stitches earlier this year. All the blocks are ready, I just have to get in there and put it all together.

Too cute! Have a porch full of scraps. Miss the birches. Don't have them in FL. Just palm trees and gators!

Marsha L said...

I've loved your birch trees quilt for a long time and it's always on my want to make wish list. My closest to being finished project just needs quilting and binding, and hopefully it'll get done in the next week. It was a challenge for a modern quilt small group I'm in. I took one of my Guild's blocks of the month and enlarged it to make a one-block quilt. How fun it would be to use your scraps to put together the birch trees!

Elizabeth Kuntz said...

Wow! I really like that pattern. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Sheryl Kelly said...

What a great giveaway! You have inspired me to make scrap quilts my priority this year. I'm on my second vortex quilt and also made one of the strip quilts you posted a few months ago (all king size!). Thanks for the ideas

Sally Hurst said...

Ooh, this is one of my favorite patterns of yours and I would love to win it! I've wanted to make this quilt for a long time. I've been making small wall hangings for Christmas gifts (getting a head start), and Fourth of July, but am ready for a larger project. Thanks for such a great give-away!

Quilter Beth said...

I love your little scraps and your pattern. Thanks for the opportunity to win. I have several projects started (like most everyone I know). The closest to being finished is an "extreme embroidery" piece. I have to do the black outline stitching to finish it. Then, I have to figure out how I'll display it.

GeeMa said...

I am working on Starburst from Pat Wys' Spotlight on Neutrals. I'm making it in bright colors as a baby quilt for a dear friend. The baby shower is July 28th, so I'm on a strict deadline for this one. I should get the blocks put together today, then I can put the flimsy together tomorrow.

Lette said...

Funny you should mention completing projects since I JUST (last night) cleaned off my WIP's shelves. 16 projects waiting patiently for completion. I think I'll tackle these like I tackle our finances. Start with the smallest first and start working my way through the projects. First up, an art piece from a class over a year ago that just needs to have the fold-over binding attached. Seriously? Why didn't I finish this before?

Stephanie said...

Who doesn't love scraps! This patter is so bright and fun. I am finishing up a lovely paper pieced wall hanging for a swap. Just have the quilting left. Thanks for the giveaway!

LoBo333 said...

I love your bright birch tree quilt pattern - thanks for offering such an awesome prize. I am closest to finishing a pink and yellow 4 patch baby quilt. Problems with sizes made me stall, but with the upcoming holiday weekend, I'll power through and finish - I hope!

Rani said...

What a beautiful quilt! And scraps are awesome! I'd love a chance to win the pattern and your pile 'o scraps! Thanks for the giveaway.

Just got to put the binding on a new pouch.

Dinah said...

I have a stack of finished pineapple blocks (also lots of small pieces!) that need to be sewn together to make a top, then backed and quilted. I am considering a quilt-as-you-go approach.
Your giveaway is so appealing! Thanks for the chance to win!

lnfol said...

I have learned to looove scraps....even made some of your baskets to hold them....of course I colored coded them!! Now I am working on The 1930s Farmers Wife QAL and constantly going to my colorful baskets.

sara said...

yes, I too, am a scrapaholic! and I love it. quilts are so much prettier with lots of colors and prints to look at. at least that is how I look at it. I am diligently working on a folded star quilt. the center looks like a spinning star. my blocks are done, I just have to put the final folds in the center and sew it together, add borders and it will be done. I can't wait to have this pretty quilt finished

Key Elements said...

This looks like a really fun quilt! I am finishing up on a quilt I call Stunning Universe. It is the first quilt I designed. It uses a 90 degree ruler - stated this as a class from Andi Perejda - making the circle it looks like an optical illusion. I am a scrap person so all material came from my stash.
I enjoy your blog - you are quite the prolific quilter. I have made elephant quilt - it is sew cute. Next your doggie quilt - wan't wait.... but I could change my mind and make this quilt. Wish me luck. Fingers crossed.
Julie

pajtr said...

Wonderful! Love the pattern, and the scraps are awesome!!
I am nearly finished with a gift quilt... For a 50th anniversary!
Thank you!

Blue dragonfly5 said...

I love scraps. I have been working on a ruler free improv log cabin quilt. But have been unable to sew for six weeks because of medical problems. The top is almost finished and I need to quilt it to enter this modern quilt in QuiltCon.

pennylanequilts said...

Love this pattern! I'm working on a top made of charm squares that creates a pixelated heart. The top will be finished as soon as I finish this cup of coffee. But my next project to finish may be one I haven't even started yet!

Rita T said...

I love that birch quilt♡. I close to finishing a quilt I am making for a baby girl, just born on Friday. Need to quilt half of it and nind it. and start on her twin brothers. I better hurry since they are here now.

FlashinScissors said...

Oh, I just love scrappy stitching, Amanda Jean! I'm so disappointed not to be part of your draw as I am in the UK! But I just had to comment as I'm green with envy of the lucky winner!
I'm stitching along with a year long SAL - The Splendid Sampler - at the moment, but other stitching hasn't stopped. Most of my "makes" are tiny patched, quilted, or embroidered items. I started a pink, green and gold quilt by Pat Sloane (Cottage Garden Beauty) some years ago, but as I wanted to use fabric from my stash, and not buy specifically for the quilt, it has slipped into the UFO pile. I have will probably carry on with it soon now, as I have more suitable scraps!
Most of my scraps are quite subdued colours and I would have loved to make a quilt using your bright scraps.
Love your pretty pattern, too, Amanda Jean.
Good luck everyone, and have fun with the scraps whoever wins!
Barbara xx

Nathan Feistner said...

Stephanie said...

I am very close to finishing a 4th of July table runner. I made some 3D flying geese and turned it into a runner. Just need to hand sew binding down!! I love scraps and would love to make this quilt.

Pam said...

This pattern has been on my "Want To Make" list for a while. I love the modern look with the scrappy pieces! Thanks for the chance to win. The project that I am closest to finishing is a Grinch quilt. I just need to do the quilting and binding.

Rebecca said...

LOVE,LOVE your quilt, its so awesome. I have a small throw quilt that I'm finishing up, just a simple square with a heart quilted in the middle. A no brainer trying to use up some squares that I bought ages ago at a yard sale. Yours could be next, heehee

Lisa C said...

I love this pattern. I have been collecting scraps but I know I don't have the variety that you do. My closest finish is putting binding on a scrap vortex baby quilt for the Crisis Pregnancy Center. My next closest finish is to quilt a lap size quilt for my cousin's newly adopted 5 year old son. Happy times.

Lorene Holbrook said...

oh yes please! I LOVE scrap quilts. I have several quilts in progress that are close to be finished to the top stage. one of my favorites is Old Friends. it was a free BOM last year at calico gals, I think. I did this with a group of friends. scrappy solids! thanks for the chance!

Heather Crook said...

I just got a small quilt back from being quilted...It has rectangular panels and I designed my own alternate block. Binding is made, just need to get it on there!

Susan Baniak said...

What wonderful bright colors! I am trying to finish up my first free-motion quilting project. It is a version of a split rail quilt, but it has a lot of low-volume fabrics, and I'm getting a little bored with it. I am committed to finishing it, but I desperately need some bright colors to play with!

Jen said...

So many WIPs! I am closest to finishing a quilt for a friend's little guy - just needs to be quilted. But, the closest quilt top is a small baby quilt made out of some hoarded charm packs that I finally cut into. I'm calling that progress. :) I love the Birch Trees quilt and always adore your fabric choices. Your scraps would be amazing to include!

elively said...

Your birches quilt has been on my bucket list for quite a while! Winning this giveaway could just kick start it for me! My closest to being finished is a quilt for a friend that is currently being quilted by my long arm quilter. I also am close to finishing a tumbler quilt for a bed runner.

carol gouveia said...

In the race to be finished I would say my Jen Kingwell Gardenvale Star Quilt is about to be the winner. I was fortunate to take a class from Jen last fall in Logan, UT. Would love to win your giveaway. I would put it in the quilt finish race and send you a picture when completed. Carol

Mary Stanfield said...

I love scraps too, have followed your 120(?) or so scrap projects, & would love your collection for the birch tree quilt. Right now, I'm procrastinating, I should be finishing machine quilting on last summer's row by row quilt. Instead, I'm doing little things like the "sweet pea pods" little zipper pouches.

Janice Holton said...

I love scraps! This would be great! I am not really near to finishing anything right now but the one I NEED to finish first is my I Heart Chevrons for my cousin's new grandbaby. The shower is July 16th!

PatriciaEE said...

I love the quilt and am always looking for ways to use up scraps. Such a beautiful quilt.

Ruth said...

I love your quilts and I love to design and start quilts...finishing is a bit of a challenge but I have 5 that I want to finish this summer. I'm working on a Irish single chain quilt with red Christmas fabrics with an off white background, a pretty in pink quilt for my 10 year old daughter, and a scrap quilt. I love scraps and I love your style!

Ann Dunn said...

It would be fun to win some of your scraps, I am quite close to finishing a quilt I am making for my cousin who will be retiring July 15th. I have the binding attached and started the hand sewing last night. I estimate that I'm about a third the way around.

Donna Bridges said...

I have a few WIP but I'm most anxious to finish my One Block Wonder quilt. Just figuring out the borders.

superstitches said...

I love scraps. There are very few that are too small to be used. I have a basket pattern that uses one inch squares. Your pile of scraps looks wonderful.

Robin (RsIslandCrafts) said...

I'm working on a red, white, and blue strings quilt. I found several string blocks tucked away recently and now I feel the need to make a few more and finish it.

The quilt I am closest to completing is a "kids quilt" with cats on it for an emergency "call" for YWCA residents. I am a confessed scrapaholic!

Loe don said...

I have admired this quilt pattern for some time and would love to recive this quilt pattern and fabric. I sure hope I am the lucky winner!!

sewnwithlove said...

I would love the small scraps and I love this quilt! Thank you for the opportunity! This week, I just found a picnic roll-up quilt, that I had completed in a class 2 years ago, but have one more side of binding that never was finished. I am definitely going to finish that so we can use it!

Paige said...

Oh, I would love your scraps! I'm working on a pillow right now!

ruthie48 said...

i have loved this pattern from the first time I saw it and have wanted to make it for a long time. Thank you for the opportunity to make it happen.

Melissa Latter said...

Scraps...love them so much!!!! Birch Trees is a pattern Ive been thinking of making for a long time. Would so love to have your bright scraps. I have a few scrap quilts on the go. Will likely be years before I get enough to finish them. But its fun in the making. The quilt I have closest to finishing is for a swap. We are doing lap quilts. I just finished the top! Im so excited to quilt it and mail it to her!!!

Sandi James said...

Finishing a summer table runner. Would love to work on thus project!

Elizabeth Ant said...

Just now getting in to scrap quilting, so far have made about 10 quilts but they have all been very controlled scrappy i.e. Using only one color. I would love to be able to do this.

Cherie Warren said...

I have an enormous bag of scraps. I think I'll get started sorting out the brights for my own pile of scraps. In the meantime I have a quilt top screaming for a border to tone it down and contain its wildness. A trip to Fabric Depot is in my future...

lej619 said...

Thanks for offering this!!! I love working with scraps!! I am working on a number of things,the one I want to finish first is a quilt that has a big print in the middle and then you put boarders all around it. I know this is very easy/fast to do but I have gotten distracted and can't seem to be able to get back to it. :(( when I get back home I hope to get back at quilting!
Thanks for the chance to win

I'm on a deadline to finish a Green Bay Packer quilt for my brother and sister-in-law. I'm going to visit them in AK in 2 weeks and I'm getting my FMQ-ing on right now! I love your tree pattern - it's caught my eye a number of times - it would also make a great gift for my AK family since birch trees are in abundance there. Thanks for your consideration!

Janette said...

I am finishing a king size log cabin made with mostly Kaffe Fassett fabrics. It is very scrappy! I love small scraps and would love to have more! Your Birch Tree quilt is on my bucket list.

Tie Dye Queen said...

I would love to be the recipient of a birch tree starter kit. I have a screenshot of one of your quilts in my "Quilts" album on my iPad. It's always fun to see someone else's scraps.

This is one of my favorite designs, that caught my eye when it first came out. I've got the background fabrics and winning your pattern and scraps would be over the top! Jean Ross jeanross1948@gmail.com

I love your birch tree pattern and I love brights!
I have a baby quilt that need to be basted and I have a queen size quilt for my son that needs the blocks put together- these are my next 2 finishes!

Sally Ann said...

I love the Birch tree pattern....I am finishing a Cactus Wreathe quilt in navy and turquoises...only my second full size quilt!

Tiffany.TF said...

This would be a great win. how lovely that pile looks. I just moved and I desperately need to get my "NEW SEWING ROOM" unpacked so I can complete anything.

RosieGma said...

This quilt is why I started following your blog, Amanda. I fell in love with the trees firts, then all the tiny bits and pieces. I have been saving scraps to one day make this quilt, but to actually win the pattern and bits from your stash is heaven.....Thank you for a well planned giveaway to someone who loves teeny bits of cloth....

Tina said...

I love scraps!! I am in the middle of a scrap bag challenge with one of my quilt guilds and I am having so much fun. I received a bag of scraps from an other quilt guild member in exchange for my bag of scraps. So far I have made a quilted handbag, a quilted pillow, and a bookmark. I am working on a zippered bag and I will be making a sewing machine cover. This has been so much fun! Thank you for the chance to win MORE SCRAPS!!!

What a lovely thing to do, offer bright, cheerful scraps to go along with the pattern. Sign me up please. I'm working on a new fun piece that I know you'll enjoy seeing. All solid and hand-dyed fabrics. It's electric.

I love scraps, I'm working on a rainbow cat quilt using my scraps. Thank you for the chance to win!

Darlene Fel....... said...

I have really started to love scrap quilts the last couple of years and this pattern is on my want to do list so this would really get me motivated to make it! I love your stuff AND your blog. Can't wait until you come to St. Cloud Heritage Quilters again:-) Thanks for the chance to win

Linda Fleming said...

A wonderful giveaway - I just love the Birch Tree Pattern and with some ready-to-use-scraps too!

I'm sewing the binding on a lap quilt for my sister - it was from a kit using a fabric line called Melodies designed by Sarah Campbell.

Next in line to finish is my Red Bird and Berries quilt - just needs a little bit more quilting in the border.

claudey said...

I would love to win this! :)
Unfortunately, I have nothing on the sewing machine right now! I finished up a couple of commissioned quilts a few months ago, and have been taking a break while doing some knitting. So that's my WIP at the moment...knitted mittens! :) At least I would be able to jump right in on the birch quilt if I won it! heehee

Lynda said...

every time I see this quilt I want to make it - would love to work with your pattern and scraps! I am getting ready for my youngest daughter and her family to arrive next week - they are coming to celebrate the triplets 5th birthday on the 9th. I have finished sewing all the blocks for a "chainlink fence" quilt (moda bake shop) and will finish the pressing then will set them aside until after they leave to assemble. I also hope to get the binding stitched to my "little trips" quilt I made with morris fabric leftovers - I may have some time to do some hand stitching and I do enjoy stitching bindings on.

grapevinegirl said...

Fun to do this quilt. Hope I win, and thanks for the opportunity to enter.

Quilt Lady said...

I just sewed the last stitch on my version of brick quilt. Love small pieces.

Love this opportunity to win such a cool pattern, also the scraps are great too. I'm currently finishing up a floor quilt for my grand babies.

Marsha said...

The closest to being finished is a princess castle panel quilt. The borders are ready to go. I had carpal tunnel on my right hand Monday so I'm taking a short break for maybe another day. Love the pattern and scraps.

Kathy said...

Well I've actually taken a short break from quilting because I'm working on a sun hat for my grandbaby girl. But I do have two table toppers waiting for me with just the binding to be hand stitched to the back!
Thanks for the opportunity to win!

I am getting ready to assemble the top of a scrappy, improvisational star quilt. Love scraps - any size scraps. Other people's scraps are always more interesting than mine. After a couple of scrap quilts, I am in need of an infusion of scraps. Thanks for the opportunity to enter the giveaway! (shirparks@gmail.com)

I just have to make a label for a quilt I made for a soon-to-be-born greatgrandson. Glad to have it done in time.

Jeanine Vicalvi said...

I love the birch tree pattern! I've had this on my list of things to do since I saw it. Reminds me of growing up in Michigan and our trips to the Upper Peninsula. I love your scraps! My box of tiny scraps are not so bright and my tastes are changing. Wishing for more brights!! Finishing up: A jelly roll race quilt is on my long arm almost finished quilting with another to load for our guilds charity quilt project, mystry quilt needs boarders, and going to finished the birthday banner for our grandson's first birthday. So much to finish! Did just finish a pin cushion with very tiny scraps from your tutorial. Thank you for the chance to win the pattern and scraps. Will definitely love them and use them.

Growing up in New England I have always loved birch trees so this pattern is very interesting to me! I would love to make this pattern!!

Unknown said...

I actually just finished a wall quilt for my oldest granddaughter who will be a senior at the University of Alabama this next year. The quilt showed a red elephant on a gray background. I named the quilt "Allie." I have a picture on my iPad but I don't know how to add it here. Now I am starting a lap quilt for her graduation gift which features a large red A.

Sherry said...

This is such a fun pattern and I love small scraps. I am close to completing my Adornit quilt. I have to put the back together and get it quilted. I don't know what I am waiting for.

Marianne Wilson said...

I'm accumulating a lot of scraps and love it! I recently finished a beautiful quit for my niece's baby - she loved it because it was handmade. I love your birch tree quilt! Actually I love all your quilts and projects. I'm currently in the process of planning a quilt for my nephew's baby due in November. Planning is one of my favorite parts of the process. I love taking ideas from several patterns and making them my own.

Anonymous said...

Thank you for the fun giveaway. Small pieces of fabric are a wonderful thing. I am working on a Christmas quilt, the pattern is called "Presents," from Missouri Star Quilt Cp. Perfect for the holiday's.

cathy said...

I do love scraps in bright colors and the lovely birch pattern.
I am closest to finishing an appliqué wall hanging from several years ago, picked up and put down repeatedly. But I always come back to it. Hopefully it will be completed this summer.
But there is always time to work on a new project.

Janelle said...

I'm working on two baby-sized quilts, and a lap-ish sized one right now. They are probably at equal stages. If I could just get into any one of them, they'd be DONE.

Kristin M said...

I am working on a paper piece puffin right now :)

Connie said...

I'm finishing the Jen Kingwell quilt, Gypsy Wife - just half the binding to hand sew. I would love to incorporate your scraps in the Birch Tree pattern.

Sara said...

I've spent the first half of this year working with all my scraps. I gave some to a neighbor who wants to learn to quilt and she is making beautiful collages that I hope will become quilts some day. And I STILL have tons of scraps. Right now I am working on a patchwork of 4 inch squares. Somehow they are my favorite size to work with. Thank you!

Suzie Faulhaber said...

I love scraps, and I love the bright birch pattern. I am about to start a quilt for my son and daughter-in-law's new house-Perfect timing!

Working on a set of place mats for a friend with sock monkey fabrics. It's a childhood memory for her.

I love scraps! My local quilt shop saves their scrap basket for me and every other month I pop in to buy it. My most recent project is Lori Holt's Bloom Quilt.

Debbie Sharpe said...

Purchased a vintage Singer 301a and looking for a project to try her out. This sounds like a the perfect challenge. Just getting into quilting and excited about using some of my fabric scraps. Would be glad to help you with yours.

sirsumcorda said...

I'm finishing up bricks and sticks from amy smart's craftsy class on precuts. New to quiltings and haven't acquired a sizeable "stash" of fabrics or scraps yet!

Jody M said...

I purchased your pattern some time ago and I would LOVE the extreme honor of piecing BIRCHES with your scraps! Thanks so much for the chance to win ...

Carol Fish said...

I just finished a stack N whack made of pretty ugly fabric but it came out great. Being Swedish, I'm partial to birch trees, especially so close to midsommer.

MTB said...

I just finished a big one (that I can't blog about yet!) so the one I'm closest to finishing is still in early stages. It's a design celebrating 100 years for the local library.

I love small scraps and would love to see someone else's collection of them. Each one is unique!

Holly Gangelhoff said...

The birch tree quilt is my favorite! I love scraps and and was inspired to sort my smallest pieces after reading your method in Sunday Morning Quilts. I'm collecting modern prints for a scrap vortex, but in the meantime, I have two baby quilts, each using one charm pack, that are ready to quilt, so those would be my closest to a finish. Of course there are lots of quilt tops and quilts in progress, too. I loved the dish towels with the mini-charms and made some for gifts. Now I just have to finish the two for me--a nice quick satisfying project. I get so many ideas from you--thank you for your constant inspiration! I would LOVE this kit!

Jill Martin said...

I really like using scraps and have bought scraps on eBay to add to what I generate. Your birch tree blocks are special to me. I grew up in Northern Vermont in the midst of many birch trees. Our Christmas Yule Log would be a length of a birch limb with holes for candles drilled as the Dining table centerpiece with greens and Christmas balls around it. Thank you for the chance to win.

DianeO said...

Would love to win this, just love the bright colors! I just finished a full size quilt and matching pillow for my sister in law. Thanks for the chance to win.

Catholic Bibliophagist said...

I guess I'm closest to finishing a chevron quilt that I am making with flying geese units.

Kelly said...

I'm closest to finishing a sweet half square triangle quilt. I'm super excited to see it finished! Also, I love your birch pattern and would like to try it myself. . . Maybe with an Essex linen background?

Barb Tazelaar said...

I'm close to finishing my son's high school graduation quilt (Graduation day was May 26 ~ Better late than never!) Thanks for the chance to win. I LOVE small scraps and you have WAY cuter scraps than I do :-)

Kimberly Arth said...

I have three table runners sitting there on the floor needing binding but they don't get done! A new kit/pattern might push me along to get them done and onto the next fun project!

Teressa P. said...

I love that pattern and have been wanting to make it, so this is a fantastic giveaway! I'm close to finishing a king size quilt for my sis in law. I just need her to decide how she wants the blocks laid out. Thanks for the chance to win!

debbi said...

i have just started planning some scrapy quilt and would love to do this pattern

Ginger Mileski said...

I've always loved this pattern! I have one baby quilt sandwiched and ready to quilt and another baby quilt top almost done. I''m on vacation next week, so woo-hoo, they both will be done. Hand sewing binding on the beach, I think I'm in heaven!!! Lake Michigan is the best!!!

Jacque T said...

I am just about to finish my only grand daughter's 1st Birthday quilt. Birthday is July 12! I'm so excited!! :)

Heather Sebastian said...

I have almost completed a completely hand-stitched highly personalized quilt for my son that encompasses milestones from his childhood and things that were of interest to him ie; legos, fishing, soccer, our family cabin, etc
Thanks for hosting a super fabulous giveaway! :)
