End Of Scrap Happy Summer~ Giveaway

Labor Day was Monday, the official close of summer, and so sadly the end of Scrap Happy Summer.  A special thanks to all my guests; Nanette, Deanna,Victoria, Melissa, Beth, Brenda, and Nedra.  I was inspired and learned so much.  My list of scrap quilts has grown.  A good thing as I have many scraps.  Oh, that I had more time.  As at the end of each Scrap Happy Summer a giveaway is in order.  I'm mixing it up this year.  Instead of a fun bag of scraps I have the new Fons and Porter Scrap Quilts magazine.
It contains 21 scrappy quilts you can make.  Two of which are mine.  Florence, named after my maternal grandmother.

and Scrappy Shine, a pre-cut friendly scrap quilt.  In case, like me, you have scraps left over from quilts you've made using these.

To enter leave a comment telling me what fun thing you did with  your scraps this summer.  Earn a bonus chance by following my blog.  If you already follow my blog just let me know.  Good luck everyone!  I'll pick a winner next Wednesday.

  3. all I make is scrappy. if it doesn't have 60 or more fabrics in a quilt it is boring. This year I have made over 10 little trash bags, mug rugs, baby quilts and I learned how to make lined zipper pouches.

    I have followed your blog for years and I really enjoy it. Keep it up!

  11. I have made several scrap quilts this summer. In fact, most of the quilts I make could be called Scrap Quilts. I love them, love making them and enjoying to try to use up my scraps(they don't seem to diminish though!) Linda on travjonuk@yahoo.com

  12. I took all of my pink scraps (and there is a ton) and have been sewing one star block a day with them. I have a few blocks to go still.
    I really enjoyed the scrappy series this summer and got some good tips. Thanks so much!

  13. First of all I am a follower and second I have made little frogs and pincushion glasses this summer out of scraps. I keep my scrap pieces, little ones, in glas jars, all sorted by colour and print.

  18. I do believe that scraps are in my life. They make me happy and I really need them to make my scrappy quilts for my friends and family. I make a queen-sized scrappy 4-patch for me. I just love it so much and am so proud of myself. So, I would be honored to become a winner of your wonderful giveaway. Thank you for giving me the chance to win.

  22. I am a follower and I kind of think my summer activities have been more scrappy than yardage experiences. A complete mix of one day at a time enjoyment. So it will be nice to settle into some serious sewing this Autumn.

  29. I made Bonnie Hunter's Scrappy Trip Around the World this summer. It's such a good cuddle quilt! It helped to clear out my 2 1/2 inch strips. Those left over were cut into squares for hexagons.

  31. This year I have been trying to focus on finishing up some UFOs. One of my major finishes was a big 84 by 84 made completely from scraps using a Bonnie Hunter mystery pattern. It is made of browns, pinks and creams and I'm extremely pleased with how it turned out.

  33. Down under we've just switched into spring, so no summer here yet...but I plan on cutting alot of my scraps up into useable pieces (such as 2 & 1/2" squares, 5" squares etc) and then having fun making scrappy happy quilts with them :)

    Hugs

  34. I have been grouping my fabrics together to get ready to start a new quilt. I also had to dig through my stash to make a wedding quilt for my friend's son and his soon to be bride.

    I just love going through my fabric and finding what I need, don't you?

  36. I too am sad to see the summer go by; too many outdoor activities & gardening coming to an end. My quilting has taken a hit...maybe cooler temps will be a plus, forcing me inside to sew! But I did make some string blocks with my scraps, found it quite fun in fact. Looking forward to putting them together & trying new layouts.

  40. I made a tree skirt and 4 stockings with some Christmas scraps. Actually, I can't remember the last quilt I made that was not from scraps. Thanks for the offering. The magazine looks like it has some great patterns and my scraps are overflowing.

  41. I made a scrappy trip around the world and have scraps ready to go for a postage stamp quilt. Then I have to cut more scraps to organize them into usable squares and strips.

  42. WEll, this summer I cut up my scraps ( some with a date on the salvage of 1987!) so that when I went to Dragoncon over Labor Day weekend I could sew hexagon diamonds in my steampunk seamstress costume! LOL
