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!

Love Love Love scraps. In fact there may be taking over, but I forge ahead. What a great giveaway. I would love to take them off your hands. I am closest to finishing a quilt for a friend that features blocks made by her quilter mom who passed away. Thank you so much.

Christina Mugg Peer said...

My close to finished items are two baby quilts, both my own pattern and a large queen size quilt based on a Bonnie Hunter pattern called patches and pinwheels. I just have to put the bindings on each of them.

Linda B said...

I am currently closest to finishing a scrap quilt with 2" squares. It's been a long project that I work on periodically, but I'm determined to make it my focus now. I have always loved your birch trees pattern, and would love to make one. Thanks for the opportunity!

Working on putting rows together on a Bonnie Hunter quilt called "Talking Turkey". I have found a paper piecing pattern with tiny flying geese that I want to try and those adorable small pieces of heaven would be perfect for this project. Thanks for the opportunity to add to my small stash. poladydwd(at)yahoo(dot)com

Sandra Walker said...

I am closest to finishing another project (I made 7 projects!) for the Henry Glass Fabrics Desire to Inspire Challenge for June! Eeep, I was so excited to be chosen. I love your Birch Tree Pattern and getting little scraps from YOU would be extra special. :-)

I will be shameless about this. I Love ,Love, Love this pattern!!!!!
As far as finishing something, well a friend brought me material she purchased at a Tag Sale. There were 4 patches in the bag that were already sewn together. Red & white n blue N White. I took them and made a rectangle abstract flag for my front door.....made one for a friend and just mailed it.......Now I'm making a table runner with the rest....Still figuring how to lay it out??? God Bless and have a Great 4th weekend!!!!

I'm working on a heart quilt with Kaffe fabrics for my niece, who is off to college in August. I am ready to put on the borders.
I would love your Birch pattern and scraps. That quilt is on my bucket list!

Lori Nicholas said...

What a wonderful opportunity to win a fabulous pile of scraps! Thanks so much for sharing:) I am WILD about scraps!! It's been a long time coming but I'm seeing light at the end of my Grandmothers Flower Garden tunnel - an EPP quilt top made with all vintage scraps.

Carol L said...

I love the pattern and your version. I bought the pattern when you visited our guild this spring. I have just finished a challenge quilt for our guild.

Repeat from * said...

We saw this at the quilt show and it's stunning in person! I'm currently working on a flying geese quilt. Otherwise known as a million little triangles quilt.

Anne said...

I bought this pattern a while ago, and I am really looking forward to making it some day. The project I'm closest to finishing is a throw quilt I'm making as a housewarming gift for a friend. I'm finally up to FMQ-ing it, my favorite part!

Debbie said...

I love small scraps and use them a lot. I am close to finishing hand quilting a quilt for our bed. It is a pattern that I got out of an old Mary Ellen Hopkins book.

Ameme said...

The piece I'm closest to finishing (at long last) is a restoration project, repairing an old applique quilt that has a pattern that looks like a grown-up version of Sunbonnet Sue - holding a parasol.

Janell Daley said...

I found your blog because of this pattern. big fan! Hoping to finish up a metro rings quilt soon

Tammy McDonald said...

Oh thanks for the lovely give away. I will finish my Sparrow Tracks quilt in the morning. It only needs the binding.

Tamie said...

I almost have a Swoon top complete!

Harold Draughon said...

I am almost finished with my rainbow heart-themed quilt for the MQG of Orlando. Will be thrilled to get to send it to them. Thanks for the give away. (C underscore dragon at earthlink.net)

Lena Wilkinson said...

My closest finish is an equilateral baby quilt that has been waiting binding for too long. I have been distracted by my little one and new projects. Thank you for such a neat give away. I think your Birch Trees pattern would make a wonderful leaders and enders project!

Kristy said...

What lovely fabrics to make your darling birches! I am close to finishing the hand stitching on Lori' Holt's bloom blocks. I have so enjoyed learning how to applique a new way. I enjoy your blog so much! Thanks for all of your inspiration to use scraps and see others projects.K- lkw2x6-apq@yahoo.com

Megan said...

How neat! I am closest to finishing a quilt for my son. It's a twin size quilt made out of Carolyn Friedlander's Architextures line. I can't wait to finish it up, but this summer has been crazy busy!

Melissa said...

What a fun and happy pattern! the project that I am closest to finishing... well, I do have the latest Bonnie Hunter Allietare quilt ready to quilt up, but I haven't figured out what I want to do yet. I am currently working on Robert Kaufman's pattern, Field Day using their 2016 color of the year ( yellow!). I love that one, so I think it may actually be finished before my currently basted quilt :)

Pamela said...

I love this pattern and have been trying to find wiggle room in the ol' budget to get it. I am almost finished quilting my middle daughters new bed quilt. When each of my kids turn 8 I update their bedding from their toddler quilts that grandma made each of them.

Jeri said...

I hardly have any scraps, or very few, because I just started quilting in November and am close to finishing only my third quilt--it is called Stars Over Iowa and was my first time sewing the traditional flying geese. Somewhere I came across your blog and Instagram and have been following your love of scraps! I hope I win!!

Kate said...

I'd love to be the lucky recipient of a bright birch starter kit! especially one you curated -- how lovely! I've followed your blog for years, and bought your lovely book. Seeing your posts always brightens my day (how fitting then, for me to make a bright birches quilt with your scraps?). Who knows? Maybe I'll be the lucky one!
I'm closest to completing a scrap vortex rainbow quilt. Rainbows are much on my mind and in my heart this summer.

Ellomee said...

Hi!! I love, love scraps!!!

The project I'm closest to completing is a patriotic quilt for an fundraiser auction to be held in 9 days! The fundraiser is for a Veterans Memorial to be erected in my tiny hometown. I have it all pieced. Just need to press, square up, quilt on my long-arm and bind. Yeah... I WILL get it done!!

Happy Quilting,
Emily

Kat said...

I am almost finished a baby quilt, just a few more lines of quilting and hand stitch the binding! Thank you for the contest!

Ortons said...

I've wanted this pattern since you published it! I'm close to finishing a scrap quilt made up of 81 7" blocks that look like asterisks. It's about time! Thanks!

Lisa said...

I'm finishing up a crazy nine patch baby quilt. This is a lovely pattern. I'd love this because i hate the process of cutting fabric. It definitely holds me back from doing as many quilts as i would like to do.

farmhousequilter8 said...

Binding on my scrapvvortex which I love. Paula in Ky

Carol Watson said...

So inspired by your blog! Would love to win this! I'm a fairly new quilter, but I just finished a scrappy checkerboard quilt using fabrics from my little girl dress project, my Mom's scraps, some fabrics I inherited from her BFF, along with some apron scraps that were my Granny's. Quilted and blinded it myself. Feeling so accomplished! I'm glad for all the online tutorials. Currently working on a scrappy wonky star mini quilt.

Julie in GA said...

I love little scraps, and your colors are always fantastic!
I just finished the top for a Rainbow Hearts quilt for Orlando.

the girlfriend gap said...

Wish I could have a whole day to just sew away. How do the days get so busy? I have a couple of quilts that just need a backing figured out and then they could be on their way to the final finish. Your scrap projects are always lovely. Thanks for the chance to win. Janita

Anonymous said...

I'm hand-quilting a baby quilt. The shower is in 15 days. What, me worry? Whenever I see birch trees, I think of your work. I'm allergic to them so I think a quilt would fit the bill - thanks!

Zippy Duda said...

I enjoy working with small pieces, bits and pieces. I would love an infusion of different pieces than those I have been working with. I am working on a scrap nine-patch, To the Nines, made of 1-inch squares only.

Keri Schorah said...

I love this pattern!!! I am so close to finishing the BOM civil war quilt top for me and my husband! This giveaway would help cheer up the sewing table after all those dark colors! Than you!

Chelsey said...

Thank you for this giveaway! I love your birch tree quilt! Currently, I am working on a hand quilt using English paper piecing. I want to say I'm close to being done with it but it is taking much longer than I anticipated lol

Julie Bagamary said...

wow - your great pattern AND fabric!!

Emily said...

I love scraps! And I've been admiring your birch trees pattern for quite some time.
I finished a quilt earlier this week, does that count? It was a Halloween-inspired simple quilt for Project Linus. Today's project is to make a label for a baby quilt that is otherwise finished; baby's dad is a coworker and returns to work on Tuesday, so I hope to gift it then. Beyond that, my closest finish is a top for the Orlando/Quilts for Pulse collection that just needs borders to be a completed top.

Calli said...

Such pretty scraps! Why don't mine look as pretty? Hmm, maybe the scraps are always cuter in someone else's collection? I am working on a granny square quilt. Blocks are made, sashing and bordering are my next step.

sue said...

What could be better than a scrap infusion? I had a good finishing week because I found 2 baby quilts that just needed binding. Hooray, a double finish.

Aunt Nancy said...

I'm just about to start an Irish chain in yellow and white as a surprise for my sister. I would love to win your giveaway.

Aliceart said...

I'm hand quilting a small quilt with big stitch right now. Trying something new in the background...we'll see. Thank you for the chance to win your wonderful pattern and fabrics!

Andrea said...

Please, please, please pick me!! I've been wanting to make that quilt, but wasn't sure what scraps to use. Your give away kit is exactly what I need! Next up? Machine quilting a few quilts that are pin basted and ready to go!

Karen Mc said...

what a cool opportunity - not sure how you are able to let go of scraps :)

Debbie H said...

Scraps are the happy leftovers of many fun projects! I'm working on my daughter's quilted computer cover - not using a pattern and needed a couple days to ponder how to proceed (probably should have used a pattern :)

Kris said...

Scraps are so wonderful! They sometimes make you be more creative and I like the challenge.

Bruins Family Webpage said...

I'm working on a large four panel seasons quilt- one rainbow, waves, sunflowers, and sun.

Deanna said...

I am working on a paper piecing quilt project, "Arcadia Avenue". It is our 2016 project for a paper piecing group I belong to. We won't be finishing it until the end of the year, but I am taking each block as a finish. Learning so much about paper piecing! I am also working on two wall hanging, all in scraps, some of which are left over from my first quilt five years ago. It feels so nice to be using up these bits and pieces. Looking forward to quilting them up and hanging them on my walls. Thanks for the contest. I have been eying this quilt pattern since you first showed it on your blog. Love, love, love it! Deanna H.

SuperMomNoCape said...

The quilt that I'm closest to finishing is orange DP9. It's sandwiched and basted but I've been stalled on quilting it because I know exactly how I want to quilt it but I'm worried I'll mess it up. I want to fmq dragonflies. I want it done by fall so I can use it, so I'm going to have to get brave!

Thanks so much for the giveaway and the chance to win. I have a US mailing address.

tahoe34 said...

I am so so close to finishing a king size quilt top for my bed, but since I've had to go back to work full time, finding the time to finish the borders has been a challenge! I love your scraps so much! Thanks for the giveway chance. Have a great 4th, Amanda!

faith said...

This is so fun that you are giving these away as I just took out my pattern for this project the day before and was pulling out scraps. I have a crazy fondness for scraps. My nearest project to completion is a modern quilt of color strips that I am getting ready to machine quilt. This will be the largest project that I have machine quilted myself and have hopes of entering it in the fair this year.

Frankie said...

I love, love, love this quilt! I've been wanting to make it for ages and I'm hopeful that I can begin it once my daughter and her family move out into their new home and I can finally have my sewing room back.

Heather said...

I love scrappy projects! Right now I am working on Cat'itude.

Donna Novander said...

What a sweet giveaway! A Bright Birch Tree is on my quilting 'wish list'. I've built up a great stash of solids, and I would adore a curated collection of your signature colors. I'm currently finishing up a Dia De Los Muertos-themed quilt for my sister that I've really enjoyed creating.

AnnaMarie H said...

I'm close to finishing a quilt for my daughter. The name of the pattern is my daughter's name so I couldn't resist. Looking for a back to finish the quilt. It will be the second quilt I get to use my new to me mid arm quilting machine. The first one wasn't really good, but I got better as I went along.
Love your blog.

Candice Langert said...

I would love to win this collection of small scraps and the pattern! This is one of my favorite patterns and just like you, I would love to complete a project that has been on my to do/wish list for a long time!

Kelly Cline said...

I love small scraps! The tinier the better!

Susan said...

I am almost through quilting a scrappy quilt from a pattern called Picnic. It is straight from the scrap pile. I have been spiral quilting it from your tutorial. I would love to win your birch tree pattern and the pile of happy scraps.

I am closest to finishing my #QuiltsForPulse. I just have to hand sew the binding to the back.

Karen in Breezy Point said...

I love this quilt--so fun!

Erika said...

I wish I was close to finishing a quilt top! I've got several planned for Christmas that I need to get cracking on. My closest finish is a wall hanging for my sewing room that's been in my pile for months now.

What a fun pattern. Just finishing a hexagon baby quilt.

Hedy Hahn said...

Love this pattern and your little scraps, so colorful. I just finished a quilt for a nephew in navy and white fabrics that has red accents, done in a pattern similar to Bear Claw. Now I am starting one for his brother in black and silver gray which will be an Irish Chain. I'm also adding borders to some charity quilts and doing binding on a great nephews quilt. I usually Orkney on several quilts at a time.

Mary Graff said...

I love scraps. I'm currently finishing up a patchwork pillow (using your tutorial!) made with a charm pack. It's for a friend who's going back to school.

i'm probably late to the game, but in case not...I love small scraps and would so like to do this quilt!!!

Dawn DeLong said...

I love small scraps and have always admired your Birch Tree pattern, so happy for a chance to win. The project I'm closest to finishing is a baby quilt for a family friend, made completely from stash with a pieced backing and even pieced batting. The only thing left is the label. Thanks for this opportunity and for hosting such a fun blog.

Chris said...

I love scraps! Love this pattern too. I'm close to finishing a hexie table runner and 2016 Row By Row quilt.

Pat said...

Love those colors. My closest to finish are about six quilts. I've cut the batting to size I need. I've picked out the backing. Now to find the time to layer and "quilt as desired". Would love to do your pattern. It will look so fun with all those colors.

Rob said...

I love scraps! The project I'm closest to completing is a BOM quilt. I have two squares to complete. Scrappy border is ready to sew on.

Jana said...

I'm close to finishing a quilting project I started 27 years ago! I bought an old string quilt top at an estate sale, thinking one day I'll learn to quilt and I'll quilt it. Well that day has finally come (yes, 27 years later!) I bought the batting and backing just yesterday, and I'm going to finally give that poor quilt top a proper finishing.

Beth said...

Someone elses scraps are even more fun than one's on!! What a nice give away! I'm making 4 I Spy Quilts for my sweet sister-in-law's family......just about completed the second one. Have a Happy Fourth of July - Beth in AL

l hoov said...

I am close to finishing up a spider web quilt I started over a year ago but put it aside to pursue other projects...oh the UFO's that accumulate! But, all I have to do is put the backing pieces together, and it's off to the longarmer! Yay!! Great giveaway - Thank You! LynneinMN. lmhoov68@gmail.com

I just finished a rail fence quilt last night and washed it this morning.. I began cutting fabric for a new quilt but should probably finish some ufo's but I can't help myself!

Erin Marie said...

I'm so close to finishing my nephew's quilt. He's 6 months now, so I'm behind schedule. Just need to baste and quilt it.

Deborah said...

I'm closest to finishing a pink and white +sign or Swiss quilt. All the pink fabric is from my very large pink scrap box. Thanks for asking and thanks for the give away chance.

Melissa said...

I need to stitch the binding down on two mini quilts. I thought I'd have road trip time to work on them but it turned out we had to take two cars at different times and Ibended up driving. Looking forward to that stitching when I return home.

Marcia said...

I love the idea of using small scraps. Isn't that how piecing quilts started? Using what we have on hand to make something. This particular pattern uses small pieces so well. I love the concept and the name.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to enter this contest.

zette said...

i have been wanting to make tis quilt for my daughter for year.

tree pattern. I am hoping to finish a hst baby quilt before baby comes!

NebraskaNative said...

I've got 3 small quilts for "Quilts for Kids" ready for basting & quilting...everything else is in the beginning phase (which is a fun phase to be in too).

Janette n said...

I love scraps!! I sew them together to make 18" x 24" fabric panels and then cut out my shapes: triangles or squares or appliqué and Sew them just like regular yardage!!! So much fun!

Gemma said...

I grew up in MA where white birch is very common. I always think of home when I see birches. I am hoping to finish hst baby quilt. I have been reading about different techniques for postage stamp quilts and would love to try it with pattern.

LynneP said...

I have two quilts that are pin basted and waiting to be quilted-and have been waiting for months and months!
Tomorrow morning, I am picking up another quilt from my longarmer friend so I'll just need to trim/bind that one. It will be nice to have some finishes!
Thanks for the chance to win your pattern and scraps.

I am close to finishing an easy jelly roll race baby quilt. I have admired that birch tree pattern for a while.

Beth Buning said...

I have always loved your birch tree pattern!
I just need to quilt and bind a twin sized quilt I made to match my daughters room. Super simple modern quilt pattern ala Valori Wells.

Jen @ de Jong Dream House said...

I'm probably too late, but I had to comment when I realized that the birch quilt was your pattern. It's been pinned on my to do queue for a while now as one for ME! Birch trees are my favorite! They remind me of growing up in Minnesota and I just saw that you live there! Such a small world!

I am closest to finishing up a beach house quilt for my 5 year old daughter. She has patiently waited for me to quilt and bind it. She is itching for a finish too! She is also waiting for me to finish her Anna dress too. Hope I complete that while she still fits into it!

Kim Stewart said...

I love this pattern and I certainly love scraps! I am currently trying to finish a non-quilt project- new patio furniture cushions as my momld ones were indeed very sad looking.

janequiltsslowly said...

I adore tiny scraps and this pattern has been on my must do list for a long time. I'm halfway done with my scrap vortex. It's going to be huge.

Shellie said...

I've had to spend most of the last year just thinking about quilting and occasionally admiring other people's finishes while I complete my BSN but I've got three quilts just waiting for borders which is the closest any of my UFOs are to completion.

margaret said...

I would love this! I prefer 1 1/2" squares and am close to finishing a 2 1/2" many trips around the world. I have a quilt loaded on the frame and just need to find the time to quilt it.

Susan said...

I love scrappy quilts! Your scraps are wonderful. I have been working on scrappy placemats using your scrap vortex pattern.

Molly Lensing said...

I'm close.to finishing PJs for my daughters. With a new baby in the house I've been focusing on small projects

Denise said...

Oh, so many UFO's! I think I am closest to finishing my Picket Fence quilt, which I enlarged of course, so It is taking a bit longer but will be worth it. Thanks for sharing!
