Sewing room tidy-up Giveaway!

003

When I came across Sarah’s version of Jacob’s Ladder over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, I knew I’d found one solution to my ever growing cache of scraps.  So now I’m busy taking care of that problem and thinking they look kind of fun this way.

(by the way, Karrie Lynn at Freckled Whimsy has a great tutorial on this block).

 043

That got me motivated to clean out in other areas too…like magazines.  I’ve been clipping through mine like crazy and came to the conclusion that I just can’t do it all, so I’m limiting myself to a couple of binders full of patterns that I can keep.

I discovered I have 2 copies of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks vol. 2 magazine and the adorable Schnibbles Short Story pattern.  Who knows how that happened? 

054

So that’s my giveaway…

…the awesome 100 Blocks magazine… the cute Schnibbles quilt pattern… and a stack of magazine patterns that just wouldn’t fit in those binders, but are much too beautiful to toss. 

If you’d like to have them, leave me a comment and let me know.  I’ll draw a name in about a week when I’m through sorting out the sewing room.  By then, I might find a few more goodies to add to the package.  …lets say Wednesday, September 7th.

I would love to win this :) I never got to buy this magazine when it was in the shop. And I love to sew blocks so I was a bit sad I missed it. And the schnibbles are just so cute. Going into rainy autumn and cold winther weather I hope I get a lot of sewing time soon :)

Kathy said...

Thank you for your generous giveaway and not just tossing the patterns and book. I would LOVE to add it to my growing collection. I just started quilting this year and just can't get enough of it. Have a great weekend!

Thanks for the chance to win! I am always looking for more patterns to try. My fabric shop had the magazine displayed by the register, and I loved looking through it. So much inspiration in there. But mommas on a tight craft budget :)

I'd also love to see pics of your tidy sewing room :) I really need inspiration to tackle mine.

I haven't entered many giveaway's but had to try this one......for the book and the Schnibbles. And the drawing is on my birthday so it looks promising........mmmmmmm The scrappy version of this block is great as I make a lot of scrap quilts with donations from friends. Thanks for the chance and continue to love on those grandbabies...the best of life for me too!!

Kristi said...

Your block is such a happy cheerful block...makes me want to play with that one. I'm really curious about the size of your red/white star quilt. Do you mind sharing what size your blocks are and the finished size of your quilt?

Oh my...I too, am trying to go through and reduce my magazine patterns, but it's so tempting to get some new ones, so here is my comment. You never know, I could find that one quilt that will get me so excited, I HAVE to make it!
Thanks for the chance,

I'd love to win your giveaway! Thanks for the chance. You are so generous and kind. I'm just starting out with quilting so this would be very motivational.

CindyC said...

I'm probably the only person who doesn't have a Schnibbles yet. I also don't have a 100 quilt block magazine. What a wonderful prize to win!

Peggy said...

I'd love to win this magazine and I've never met a Schnibbles I didn't like! I so totally get why you have two! I've done that myself. I just love patterns...oh the possibilities!

Jo said...

Wow what a great prize I didn't even know about the 100 blocks mags till this year so I sure don't have that one. Thank goodness you didn't decide to toss these wonderful things out! I would love to win as I am sure many others would also.

Val Laird said...

Wow, what a great prize. I love it that you are cleaning up your sewing room!!!

Gayle said...

I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who makes duplicate purchases of quilting books! LOL However, I know that I DON'T have this one, or the Snibbles pattern. Would love to be entered in your drawing!

Angela said...

What a nice giveaway! Please enter my name in the hat! :o) It's nice to have lots of patterns, you never know what you may feel like working on next... :o)

The Rogue Quilter said...

Who would actually say no to this great opportunity. What a great way to pass stuff along. So much better then ending up in the garbage.

Sarah Craig said...

I was so surprised to see lots of hits on my blog coming from your blog - and even more surprised to see such a great giveaway on yours when I stopped over here! So glad I could inspire you to clear out some stuff - maybe it will reverse back on me!!

Michele Hester said...

I like it when people clean out their sewing stash! Please include me in the drawing.

Kathleen C. said...

Your Jacob's Ladder is wonderfully colorful and exciting with so many fabrics.
I haven't subscribed to a magazine in years, so I know I'll enjoy any magazines or patterns in your giveaway. And I've heard that Volume 2 is full of great patterns--thanks very much for sharing your extras.

Karen said...

Now that is a perfect block for scraps, I love it!!!! No giveaway for me, I need to stay focused on the projects at hand. LOL.

Colleen said...

Hey. I see you have an adorable new grandson to wrap in the puppy quilt! Congratulations!! He's absolutely adorable.

Nancy E said...

Love your block & what a great giveaway! Be sure & show us your tidy sewing room.

Deb said...

I laughed so hard...just got done cleaning and purging for fall. Gave some to the Senior Quilt Group, to the Guild and sent my daughters each several things but here I am wanting these things! I love getting stuff that other people have had, there is always a story behind it! And don't you just giggle when you buy something twice(and in a rare case or two, 3 times!) lol Love, Love, Love the Scnibbles. We don't have a quilt shop in the area any longer and so hard to find the patterns.

Thanks for the giveaway and BTW love your blog!

Andee said...

I love that colorful block! Thanks for the chance!

Mary Beth said...

Thank you for a chance for a giveaway! Good for you cleaning and getting organized.

Anita said...

I love the Jabobs ladder block. I may have to make another quilt using that pattern after seeing it in color. I made a queen sized bed quilt using that pattern for my daughter. Her request was for it to be done in all cream and brown fabrics. When done, it was beautiful, but I was more than ready to sew something, anything with lots of bright colors.
Thanks for a chance to win your giveaway.

Shari said...

This is a great block - good for scraps. This will be so charming and fresh.

Pen Pen said...
