oh happy day!


I'm done piecing the strips for my spiderweb blocks. I have a *few* strips leftover. (Actually, a basket full.) They would work in any string quilt. If you want a chance to win them, leave me a comment on this post. I'll pick a name on Tuesday. One comment per person please.

Hi Amanda
Love your blog, your creations and most of all would love to have your scraps.

Down here in South Africa we do not get the amazing variety of quilting fabric available to you, and to have such an awesome treasure of different scraps would make my quilting buddies GREEN.

So Please, pretty please, make me happy.

I would love to make a spider quilt, but I don't have nearly enough scraps for it to look genuinely 'scrappy'...any help with other fabrics would be wonderfuL! Thanks for the opportunity. Stacy from MN (saklucas at msn dot com)

Diane said...

I can't believe how many comments you've gotten for scraps! The good thing about adding someone else's scraps to your own is how they perk things up. My ongoing scrap project could sure use some new life!

Erin F said...

You've inspired me with the spider web. I'd love the scraps to get started!

Shelly said...

jacquie said...

Oh wow! This would be so awesome to win! I am waiting until my scraps have enough variety to do a string quilt and this would be the perfect addition to my pile!

Mrs. Katie Picciottoli said...

I can't wait to see your spiderweb quilt...and hopefully get some scraps to save toward starting one of my own! Thanks for the chance to win :)

Lynn H said...

They would be wonderful in the scrap quilts I am making for our local Children's Palliative Care House - I am using the block a day as my incentive !!

I will use this as an excuse to thank you for your blog. I find you an inspiration and finally decided to join you and am working on a 9 patch quilt. I have trouble with not obsessing over matching with my scraps so the addition of your scraps would make the needless obsession much easier.
I appreciate the opportunity to finally comment.
