May Giveaway Day: Happy Scraps


We interrupt this Spring Quilt Market coverage to bring you Sew, Mama, Sew!’s May Giveaway Day! If you don’t know what I’m talking about, follow the link and get lost in hundreds of giveaways from crafty blogs worldwide.


I recently realized most of my giveaways on this site have been books and gift certificates — what kind of self-respecting fabric blog am I? We need some free fabric here. So I did what I’ve been meaning to do for a long time: reduce my overflowing scrap bins.


I made up eight packs, separated by color. And one pack of dots. There is vintage mixed with new in each pack, mostly quilting cottons, but also a few blends, linens, and corduroy pieces. They range from tiny, odd shapes to fat quarters. I had lots of blues so there are two of those.


The Rules! To be eligible to win a scrap pack, please leave a comment here and specify your favorite pack: pink, orange/yellow, greens, blues, purple, brown, dots. What I’m going to do is generate a random number list, and go down the list to pick the first person who specified each pack. So if you don’t say which one you like best, you’ll be skipped over!

As per Sew, Mama, Sew!’s suggestion, the comments will be open through Sunday, May 31, 2009 (10pm Central U.S. time). This drawing is open to anyone in the world. Good luck!



Oh and P.S., sorry for the poor lighting in the photos, we seem to be having a monsoon here in Austin today.

    I hope I’m not too late. How wonderful and how generous. This is amazing. I would rather have a handful of old fabrics then fat quarters of the new stuff.

    Take care. What a great site. I’ll be back.

  4. Thank you for such a great giveaway and introducing your blog. I think the blues are great and the browns. So I would be happy with either. Thank you again. Good luck everyone. Have a great day. I will be back to visit such a great blog.

    Hubba hubba! My darling daughter continues to request that I make her this or that in PINK. Alas, I think I have about 3 pink fat quarters in my whole stash. Sad, just sad. So, if I’m lucky enough to be close to your random number, my daughter would really appreciate some pinks added to my collection. Thanks for the opportunity!

    Hard to pick one but, “dots” it is. Thank you for the opportunity, best of luck to one and all.
