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.

    Scraps make me happy! Not done enough with mine this summer ….just a couple of notebook covers!

  • Nicky says:

    I follow you blog!

  • Wonky Girl says:

    Sorted my scraps and made more scraps then mailed a bunch to a new quilter cuz she needed scraps to start some scrappy quilts. Now I'm getting ready to start some string blocks 😉

  • Mary K says:

    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!

  • Amy says:

    I made three doll quilts for a local organization for their sibling store at Christmas time. They are actually for stuffed animals: a seal, a dolphin and a shark. And I follow your blog on Bloglovin.

  • Unknown says:

    I love to make scrap quilts, but this summer, I used my scraps to make the backings for bunches of quilts.

  • Julierose says:

    I am a follower of your blog; I worked on making BH's scrappy strips all summer long and have 30 of them done–aiming for 60–such fun! I used a modified scrap collection to reflect my days by the ocean…hugs, Julierose

  • Linda says:

    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[at]yahoo.com

  • Lynn says:

    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!

  • Lynn says:

    I'm a follower too!!

  • Flickenstichlerin says:

    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.

  • Vicki H says:

    I made myself an owl pincushion and my sister some coffee cozies.

    The rest of this year was already dedicated to using my scraps, strings, and stashed bits . . . this magazine would offer some new ideas and ways to use those treasures! Thanks for adding my name to your list! (I'm a lurker)

  • Sandra says:

    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.

    I love scraps and made two scrap quilts this year and one quilt top so far. I still have plenty scraps left over. I belive they breed in the scrap box. lo.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Karee says:

    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.

  • Anonymous says:

    I made a string quilt early in the summer.

    I worked on several different types of scrap quilts; several of them with "made fabric". I have your blog on my favorites bar.

  • pcflamingo says:

    I got started on Bonnie Hunter's Split 9 Patch leader-ender summer challenge – only have 20 or so blocks done so far….but I have LOTS of HSTs and squares ready to go!

  • Bonnie says:

    I helped my granddaughter pick out scraps and make her first quilt. She wants to hang it on her wall.

    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.

  • Mary says:

    I am following your blog. I really enjoyed all the scrap quilt inspiration this summer. Scrap quilts rock!

  • Mary says:

    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.

  • ruthsplace says:

    I'm making a strip quilt with a white centre strip from deep stash fabric scraps.

    I follow you already on feedly.

  • Beeshebags says:

    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 🙂


  • curious says:

    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?


  • Jenny says:

    I already follow your blog. I have been using my scraps as a leader and ender 4 patch project.

  • SherryB says:

    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.

  • Betsy says:

    I made four baby quilts for my co workers. Thanks for the chance

  • Melissa says:

    I made a sewing pouch, a kindle case, and am about 1/3rd of the way finished on a scrappy hexagon quilt. Thanks for the chance to win a copy – it looks fabulous!

  • Ruth says:

    I started a quilt by Bonnie Hunter! Actually the class is tomorrow, but I started it ahead of time. I am really "into" scrap quilts right now.

  • Teri says:

    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.

  • Carol says:

    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.

  • Mary Ann says:

    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
