Book Giveaway

I know I have never really gotten into giveaways on my blog like a lot of other quilters. All of you have followed me despite that and I have to say I appreciate it. That's going to change this week as I morph into a nicer, more generous, less whiny version of myself. Don't be too disappointed - My first giveaway will not be your usual gift  of a brand spanking new item. No, sorry, but almost as good, I think.

I was cleaning out a bookshelf in the basement while looking for some of my gardening books and I found a copy of my first book - American Doll Quilts - that's now out of print and is very hard to find.


It's slightly damaged on the back cover - but the front and inside is perfect. I can't remember for sure, but I think it got damaged a few years ago when I was about to mail it out to a customer and the glue strip on the padded envelope stuck (like Glue, duh!) to the book and try as hard as I could, I couldn't remove it without damaging the back cover. So I sent her a clean one and tucked this one away thinking no one would ever really want it. And maybe no one does.


Here you can see it - there's a strip of icky, sticky gummy stuff along with couple of scratches where I tried to remove it with no luck. I thought I'd let the lucky winner remove it herself or maybe just live with it the way it is. It's still a delightful book containing 16 patterns for little quilts and not bad for a first book. I get asked about whether I have extra copies all the time.


Many of you who've been following me for awhile probably already have a copy (it went out of print in 2009) but this is great for those who may have just discovered my books and want to see the early patterns where I couldn't sew a straight line if my life depended on it, LOL.


To enter: All you need to do is post a "creative" comment using these 3 words: Scraps, Crazy, and Blue. Like this: "I'm going to go crazy if  I don't win this giveaway and will be very blue if I don't get to make a doll quilt from my little scraps soon." Or: "You're Crazy, Kathy! Who would want this book with the blue cover full of quilts made from your silly scraps??"  Just like those Spelling lessons we had in the fourth grade where you had to use 20 words in sentences. We're all getting older now and this will be a very good exercise for you to think a little and possibly generate some new brain cells . . .




I will use a random number generator to pick the winner. I'm thinking there may also be some small giveaways of fabric for runner-ups - those 2 or 3 who post the most creative comments that make me laugh without being insulting. Be sure to leave your e-mail address so I can contact you if you're the winner.  Giveaway ends on Wednesday, March 9 and comments will close at 10:00 pm CST (when I turn off my computer and go to bed). Good luck! Winner will be announced sometime Thursday. And I promise I'll have more special giveaways like this one in the coming weeks.

Ooh I would definitely like to win it!!!
Thanks.

Asiyah said...

I'm going crazy with all the scraps in my studio! But you can help me...just send your American Doll Quilts book to me! You wouldn't want to see a fellow quilter blue, would you?

Joyful Quilter said...

Well, I'm not too fond of blue, but I would be crazy not to try making a scrappy quilt from your book out of red, or green, or yellow, maybe even orange.

Kathleen Tracy said...

Make sure you follow the "3-words rule" or your comment will not be accepted . . .

Me and My Stitches said...

I would be crazy WITHOUT scraps, and oh, so blue if I don't win a give-a-way soon!

May Britt said...

I have all the other books, but not this one, and I would be CRAZY happy if I won it. I love playing with SCRAPS from my stash and your books is so inspiring. One thing about me is that I seldom use BLUE in my quilts. I have a lot of blue fabrics, but I have problem using them.

Cathi said...

One would be crazy not to want your wonderful book, glue on the blue back cover notwithstanding, as it will help to use up scraps and make delightful little quilts!

AKnativewoman said...

Oh, you are such a crazy lady! Even if you waited for a blue moon to have a giveaway, we'd still be happy to visit you every day! This lovely book would be cherished like my drawers of scraps and together, those scraps and your book would make lovely gifts! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Rachel said...

My day has turned out to be a crazy one with having to rush my daughter to the doctor, and I was feeling a little blue until I found some small scraps of time in between the rushing, and came and read about your giveaway, and I am not blue anymore! :o)
Thanks for the opportunity.

Bonnie said...

Of course I would love to have it ... as well as many more, I'm sure. Thanks. Bonnie /Va

Ann said...

I've driven myself crazy this week sorting out all the scraps that were cluttering up my craft room and I was surprised at how much blue fabric I use.

The sky is so blue and the clouds make it look like a scrap, crazy quilt.

Lainee said...

I'm crazy for scraps and could quilt until I'm blue in the face and wouldn't use them up. I promise to use the book to make a dent in them.

Glenn Dragone said...

I'm the oddball quilter. I don't have a stash of SCRAPS in any color including BLUE so give me some claps. It would be CRAZY if I won the giveaway... and I would proudly shout hooray!

I'll stick to quilting.

Joanne said...

The slight damage on the blue cover wouldn't drive me crazy, I would still be able to make the scraps quilts shown inside!
Thanks!♥

It will make me blue if I don't win your book - my scraps are driving me crazy!

Sandra said...

For years I stashed away SCRAPS like a CRAZY-woman, and now look forward to making lovely American Doll Quilts. I would love to win your book giveaway and won't be BLUE if the back cover is damaged:)

suemluvsquilts said...

Here I am,looking out at the BLUE sky,thinking I must be CRAZY to stay inside looking through my delicious SCRAPS of gorgeous fabrics, excited to begin yet another quilting adventure!

yorkie mom said...

I'm definately CRAZY to win the SCRAP quilt book so I can sew doll quilts until I am BLUE. Thanks for the chance to win! gougeonathome@charter.net

Mary said...

Top 3 reasons my husband thinks I'm beyond help:

1) I have bags of scraps that I insist I am going to use "someday";
2) I am blue and a few other choice words if I don't get to stitch everyday;
3) I'm just crazy enough to try to win one more quilt book that I don't have and absolutely want to have.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to win. Such a fun giveaway. Best wishes,
Mary

Heth said...

My dolls are all BLUE with cold, so your wonderful book would help this CRAZY quilter to use up her SCRAPS to keep them warm.
;) Heather

Rita said...

Some crazy lady is making blue because she says I have to use all my scraps. Oh well, I tried.

Carla said...

Yes, I'm blue. I have so many scraps I don't know what to do. They seem to come from every corner of the sewing room. Color me crazy, color me blue, but if I don't win your book I'll have to go boooo hooooo.

Terry said...

I'm crazy for blue scraps! Well, I'm crazy for all scraps! LOL Thanks for the chance to win your book! I'd sure love to have it! :0)

SewMary430 said...

I have been Crazy about quilting for more years than I want to remember and find that blue is in most of my quilts where they are scrapy or planed placement.I love your books and would love to have this one in my collection, I am also look forward to learning from you at the retreat next weekend.

free indeed said...

I won a GO cutter recently and haven't even used it yet...CRAZY I know! I so wanted it to tame the SCRAP bin and that is still the plan...first up is a SCRAPPY apple core quilt and I'm sure there will be plenty of BLUES!!!!

Merilyn said...

What a great give-away. A little hint on removing the sticky stuff, try using some pure eucylyptus or lavender oil on a cotton ball and gently work over the sticky area, you will find that the oil will slowly dissolve the glue. It does work, I use this method sometimes when I have taken a price label off a book that has left a sticky residue.
I would be crazy not to try and win a copy for a blue friend who loves scrappy quilt books!

Marsha said...

A little bit of goo on the back cover of blue won't make me crazy, I love to sew with my scraps and this book would be perfect to me!

Susan said...

You may think I'm CRAZY to enter your giveaway because I already have a copy of this book, but I'd really like another one to donate to my quilt group's lending library. I just made the little red-white-and BLUE shoo-fly quilt from this book. Kathleen, if you look at your Flickr group, you can see the picture of it.The blocks were made completely out of SCRAPS, and when I needed fabric for one of the borders, I used pieces from a cut-up shirt. Thanks for the giveaway. I already thought you are pretty nice, even without it.

Linda said...

Well, you are crazy Kathy! Everyone would want your blue covered book, glue and all, full of quilts made from scraps, silly or not!! Including me.
Thanks

Petals said...

What a crazy thing to do, you sassy thing, you!

Making me use my creative scraps to come up with this here little rap;

So, though my comments are few,
I most certainly will be blue,

If I don't managed to win
and take your sticky book for a spin! :)

Anne-Mette said...

I would almost feel like crazy, if I should be the lucky one to win your blue book. And YES I could use lots of my blue scraps too.
Thank you, it sure is a generous give away.

Paule said...

Its crazy all my scraps are turning blue after reading this post

Cathy Richards said...

I am soooooooo blue, I have so many scraps that I am going to go crazy if I dont find a nice pattern for them soon!

M. said...

Kathleen, I used to work in a quilt shop and I still kick myself for not buying this book (budget was so tight). I need to win this!:) If I win I pinkie swear I will go crazy making every scrap(s) quilt (blue, red, gold and pink) in the book! Thanks, Mona @peaceandquilts@gmail.com

Sue said...

Well, I am thankful to say that I have a copy, but that will make a nice gift for some lucky winner! Good luck to all!

Chris from NJ said...

Once in a blue moon my scraps come out to play. They dance around like crazy and end up in a beautiful quilt. I would love to win your book!

Being a big fan of quilts made from SCRAPS, I am CRAZY over all your books. However, knowing how valuable this one is, I will be particularly BLUE if I don't win it.

And a big thank you for the opportunity to!

Wouldn't a tiny crazy quilt made of indigo blue scraps be sweet on my mother's wooden doll bed? Uh oh, I feel another project coming on!

Lisa said...

I have some crazy blue scraps I'd love to use to make some of the scrappy blue quilts in your crazy first book. :)

Nicky said...

Peg from NJ that required effort! Here is my effort in limerick form:

There was a CRAZY young quilter from Fleet
Who wished to make a doll's quilt so petite
On the colour BLUE she was keen
So she asked dear Kathleen
For a book and some SCRAPS to complete...

:D ho, ho

Love the blue on the cover of your book. How did you come up with such a crazy idea for a giveaway? Your books always give me great ideas on how to use up my scraps! Thanks for the giveaway, hoping you pick me!

Lisa said...

There once was a woman who had lots of SCRAPS. She sewed all day long and loved all the colors, red and yellow and pink and green, purple and orange and BLUE. Some say she went CRAZY because there was no thread to be found; it was not the lack of thread but the song in her head. (I can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow…) http://video.search.yahoo.com/search/video?p=i+can+sing+a+rainbow

I am feeling a little blue as i am stuck about what to write,that has not been mentioned before...I would so much like to win this book,so i will probably drive myself crazy all day while i try to come up with some scrappy comment....

I've thankfully made it through another long Canadian winter without going crazy and now just need the sunny blue skies of spring to melt away the last scraps of snow. Thanks so much for a chance to win this wonderful book.

Kathy said...

Why, I think you would be CRAZY not to pick me to win this book. I have lots of BLUE SCRAPS which would make a wonderful monochromatic lil quilt!!!!!

All my SCRAPS are going CRAZY thinking of how BLUE they would be if they weren't used with this book!

I'm going CRAZY with all the SCRAPS I have accumulated!! It will be a desolate and BLUE day in Georgia if I don't win this book!!!

I am glad you didn't scrap the book due to its slight damage. That'd be CRAZY! It is true; I sit and wait for inspiration for the word blue. And I ain't getting anything, I would, however, LOVE, LOVE to have a copy of your book to work from. Karmen

I have lots and lots of scraps,
Of which many are blue.
I'd be crazy with joy
To win this book from you!

I do have about three large containers of blue scraps, compared to just one container of most other colors. I just discovered your blog and yahoo group about three months ago. I guess I'm just a crazy lurker!
Thanks for a fun giveaway!

Kathy, you are crazy if you think we wouldn't want your blue book! I read your blog for your scraps of wisdom, not giveaways. I seldom enter the free draws but this one is just to good to be true! Here's hoping....

I have been going CRAZY the last few days trying to decide on a pattern for a doll quilt made from my favorite BLUE SCRAPS. I know I would find just the right pattern in your book, because some of my favorite doll quilt patterns are in that very book. I would certainly treasure this one.

What gorgeous blue, scrap quilts could be made from this!! I am making a scrappy crazy quilt out of men's shirts I bought at the local Goodwill for $1. each. I think I would love tohave this book, in my book, LOL..there are no DAMAGED books. In this age of electronic stuff, I still treasure the feel of the paper book, it can never be replaced. I would so appreciate having this book...it is the only one of yours I don't have!

Karen said...

January I went CRAZY and bought three of your books. February I searched the net for that missing book. It left me BLUE what will I do, I just can't find that book. March I spot your giveaway and oh how that made my day. SCRAPS would be flying and I may start crying, should I win this giveaway!

Your books are wonderful Kathleen, beautiful quilts and I love the history to go with them. I recently made and posted the Pillow Pincushion from The Civil War Sewing Circle on my blog and I am working on Friendship Star from Prairie Children and Their Quilts.

You have such a lovely blog and now a marvelous giveaway. I'm crazy for a chance to win the blue book. There's nothing I like better than making and using quilts made from scraps.

Made of scraps all of one hue

who had a box of scraps;
Who jumped like crazy to grab her little cat
From off the fabric blue
Before he could squat
And leave his little poo.

jolanda said...

People called me CRAZY when I started my very first quilt a few month ago because I have a habbit of starting things and not finish them. But that's in the past! This quilting is really my thing and for this first quilt I choose the colors brown and BLUE because it fits so well in my house. I already made a little christmas quilt and have started now with the MQ from Veronique.
As you can imagine I don't have a lot of SCRAPS yet, but since I never can throw away something... this will change very soon I think LOL. This marvelous book looks great!!! And who cares about the damaged back? I think I won't see the back of the book a lot, because I will keep looking inside! :-))
Thank you very much for the chance of winning this!
Have a nice day, jolanda from the Netherlands

Mimi said...

What I am I thinking? that I must be crazy to enter this with 110 comments already posted. But blue or green or read.... this book would be lovely to have. Now let's see, where are my scraps?? must be a good scout and be prepared. Until I win, back to the garden....

Darlene B said...

My husband may think I'm crazy for saving all my blue scraps, but I know that they could be used in a doll quilt someday. I'm totally sane....really!

Oh how I would love to win your book. Then, I would surely know what to do with all those crazy, blue scraps. I can be reached at mandmgold@yahoo.com

Anonymous said...

I have some SCRAPS but I'm BLUE. I'm new to quilting and wondering if I'm CRAZY because I

Winning your first book would be such a thrill and guide me as a beginner and show me what can be accomplished with time, patience and lots of practice.

Dear quilter Kathleen, lover of blue, you are driving all of us crazy with a chance to win this very special book from you. Our scraps overflow our baskets and bins, just give us some time and a pattern to use. Thanks for sharing this treasure.

Susan Hemann said...

This is a bit of a story. A friend on twitter is interested in Underground Railroad quilts, so I told her I had a few books and would let her know. I pulled out your book Prairie Children and Their Quilts.I was drawn to the BLUE Friendship Star Quilt.I'm very sentimental. As I was looking for other books by you I saw The American Doll Quilts book. I immediately went to Amazon, but they had one copy for 74.. I then made a CRAZY search of the used books stores on the internet, no luck. So I went to the publisher, who directed me to your website. I sent off an email hoping I might be able to get a copy of the book. I saw that you had a blog, so here I am. I cannot believe you are giving away a copy! I have been collecting vintage SCRAPS for years. And doll quilts too. I am so glad to have found a connection in the blog world.

Elisa said...

My CRAZY cat, Oscar, holds his breath until he's almost BLUE as he dives into my basket of SCRAPS in glee! LOVE to win it!

I'd go crazy with excitement to win your wonderful, blue book on American Doll Quilts because I love sewing with scraps.

Shasta said...

I once bought some fabric to make a blue quilt. Every time I went into a store, I wound up buying more blue fabric for that quilt. I might have been crazy having a self imposed limit on buying new fabric, because now that my quilt is pieced, I have enough blue scraps to make five more queen sized quilts!

A book
To win, to win
By my chinny chin chin
So my cat can nap on
A crazy blue quilt made with scraps

My crazy scraps will be blue if I don't win your your book!!

Betty Lou said...

This is a wonderful book for those of us who love small reproduction quilts. Enjoy all your books.

Mary said...

I'm not crazy thinking I'll win a blue book using scraps. It might just happen. Or how about - I've never made a blue crazy quilt from scraps. Or - I'm teaching my young granddaughter to sew like crazy using scraps of her favorite color - blue. Or my friends thought I was crazy when I made a quilt from scraps during my blue period. (The quilt is blue - not me.) Should I keep going? In other words, I'd love to win the book but I'll stop now.

I love scraps and I'd be crazy to pass up the chance to win a book of yours despite the damaged blue cover!

I love your first book so much I've had the local library's copy for over a year now! I've been wanting to buy it, but since it's out of print it's a bit difficult. Looking forward to finding out who wins it!

If I had a chance to win, your book should follow the bridge of SCRAPS, which flies over the BLUE vawes of the Atlantic Ocean. USA to France: what a CRAZY adventure! Thanks. Delphine from France.

I have been going crazy looking for this book everywhere on the blue planet. I love scraps and scrappy little quilts. And I don't mind the sticky blue cover.

SCRAP, CRAZY, BLUE, My God, what say ? I don't speak english or a little. Blue I know, it's a colour, crazy, I know also, crazy of love for example, scrap, what's scrap, Mister Google translate by "debris" in french. Translation not pretty. But a pretty blue crazy quilt with scrap, I like, I love and a little blue book, with a damaged back cover, I think that I loved also. And you, do you like my english. Thank you for your blog, it's a régal (in french) and your new book also.

Funny you should mention it....recently I was looking for my copy and thought I was going to go CRAZY as I knew I purchased it. Then I remembered I gifted it to my very young great niece only 6 at the time just learning to piece quilts, hopefully with some of the SCRAPS I have sent her. Boy did this make me BLUE especially when I tried to reorder and discovered it was out of publication..a sad sad day! And this is based on a very true story!

Anonymous said...

I'm going to go crazy, and blue in the face from holding my breath, waiting to see if I get your book so I can use my scraps in one of your doll quilts!

And I could make some many new projects using my scraps!! I'm just waiting for the perfect project!! I'm hoping they will be in this wondeful new to me book!! Thanks for the great giveaway!! Hugs Ariane

There once was a quilter from Sycamore
Who was crazy to use scraps by the score
She started to sew
And what do you know
Blue and white quilts were created forever more

Annette said...

I'm a crazy quilter that likes to make blue scraps into quilts. Thanks for the chance.

I have been searching like CRAZY for a copy of this BLUE book that will help me to use up many of the reproductions SCRAPS that I have accumulated. Thank you so much for offering this giveaway.

What a cute book, I bet there would be a pattern for a crazy quilt in there and I could use up some of my blue scraps.

Sheila said...

people i know think that I'm CRAZY, saving all the SCRAPS from my projects. I get BLUE if I don't sew a little every day. with four granddaughters a book of doll quilt patterns would be just the ticket to ward off those blues

Anonymous said...

Kathy - Thank you for offering us one of your earlier books. Its condition doesn't matter; it's the thought that counts

I am a crazy quilter who loves to sew scraps of material into works of art, and I am blue when I cannot.

There once was a crazy quilting lady
Who thought that the idea of hade
Would be never to have enough scraps
To quilt til she would collapse.
Although a give away would make her swoon,
along came that famous blue moon.
So she decided a book it will be-
And I sure hope it comes to me!

I'm crazy about making quilts especially when I can use the blues in my scrap box. Thanks for the chance to win.

ledamewood said...

I would love to win this and have been going crazy looking for a book that provides just these patterns for my Granddaughters American Girl Dolls. Blue is my favorite color, so I have lots of blue scraps, among others.

Jantine said...

We never had those crazy spelling lessons in the Netherlands, but any way, I will give this a try. Tell you, my husband just commented on Sunday I should use more blue in my quilts, which made me buy more blue fabrics right away who will return into scraps soon as I plan to use them for a new quilt. Satisfied? LOL. I love your doll quilts and do not have the book since I didn't start on them before 2010...

Helle said...

With all my blue scraps I could make a crazy amount of doll quilts if I win your lovely book! Thanks for the chance! Greetings from Seoul, hesabella(at)gmail.com and Happy International Women`s Day!

Quilted Loon said...

Since it's my favorite color, I think I'll make a crazy quilt with my blue scraps!

Mimi said...

I must be crazy because have never made a doll quilt or a miniature quilt before so this book would be awesome (new or old, I'm not fussy!!). Since blue is my favorite colour, I have quite a bit of that colour in scraps. Thanks for the chance!!

Heartsdesire said...

I'm crazy for scraps, especially blue ones. They always look good in small doll quilts like the ones in your books.

Ineke Platvoet said...

I was feeling so BLUE when I could not find your first book, as it was out of print. I needed it so bad to use my SCRAPS. Should I now win your give away I will go so CRAZY.

Cassie said...

Hey Kathy! Thanks for doing this giveaway. I don't think I am as crazy as some of the other commenting quilters. But I do have plenty of scraps that I continue to keep stored away for projects that require a smaller cut than the average quilt. Many of my scrappy pieces are indeed the color blue, and would be used a lot quicker than the rest of my scraps, since blue is my favorite color.

I hope the random number generator likes me, it doesn't seem to so far, but I still have hope! :)

Karen said...

OH SCRAPS! I can't believe your beautiful book got damaged, but I would be CRAZY not to enter your giveaway. I love BLUE fabric as much as you do....so if I don't win the book, I would love to win some of your fabrics.

Jeanne said...

The inside is the important part! I'd love to win this book.

I am a crazy fabric scraps collector and I like everything blue, mainly the pretty clear blue sky since it's not clear blue today because of the rain.

Doll quilts are fascinating--even those made of crazy blue scraps! I was able to see the display of vintage doll quilts at the International Quilt museum in Lincoln: each has a special story!

Red Rover said...

Whenever I'm blue, I haul out my baskets of scraps and just go crazy. I also do this when I'm pink, red, green yellow....

Kathleen C. said...

I'm crazy for blue scraps and hope to make a blue crazy quilt from my collected scraps, and that's the truth; my home is full of blue and red and full of quilts made of scraps! I love making small quilts, including doll quilts though I don't have this particular book. I think sharing slightly used books is a great way to have a giveaway-thank you.

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

Count me in as well!

Sandra said...

I just discovered your books and blog and I LOVE them! I love that you make your doll quilts with scraps, especially in shades of blue and red! The look is not crazy, but really authentic to the time of the historic quilters that we love.

Vicky said...

I'm not really crazy
And surely not blue.
I'd just make a scrap quilt
Out of this book from you!!

Okay, I'll admit that was weak!! :)

Deborah said...

I would be crazy to not use up my bag of small blue scraps on a lovely little doll quilt!

Shauna said...

I am a CRAZY fan of your books, I have them all and signed by you... The Blue book (American Doll Quilts) is the only one I don't have signed - but have a printer copy that I bought...This would be the perfect book to help use up some of my SCRAPY material...If I don't win, I will be BLUE but that is ok... Thanks for offering this book!!!

Lynda said...

I've been called worse that crazy when people see my sewing room full of boxes and boxes of scraps in all shades of blue, green, red and yellow. My granddaughter is going to the American Doll store for her birthday next month and I'm sure a cute little quilt would be perfect as a gift for her new doll.

Tanya said...

I must be a little crazy to try to enter a contest like this. I probably don't have a chance to win with the tons of participants on the list. I have so many scraps sorted by color and in all shapes and sizes. I need help yes I do, to use all these pieces and create a suprise. I relish the thought of winning a little book in blue from such an inspiration like you. Tanya

Jodi said...

I am a beginner to this quilting game, a lovely friend showed me the basics and off I go to make a quilt or see what I now know. I begin to think a queen size bed may be an ambition to grand and mabey a dolly quilt, she would understand. But all of the patterns I seem to find are far to big. Small is hard to find. I would be so pleased to give these a go and a little glue stain wouldn't make me say no.

jennifer said...

Oh how fun. It makes me crazy when I go through my scraps and can't find any blue ones.

ivy said...

Kathy,
Love to win!! I have so many blue scraps, I am going crazy wondering what to do with them all!!!(Your book would help)

Anonymous said...

Years ago I followed a course patchwork/quilting but I never did anything with it, so I don't have any scraps. Seeing lovely quilts at different sites and having a friend who is very fond of quilting, I would love to start quilting again. Perhaps I am crazy to even think I can start with the quilts from your book. Well, I don't have to win a blue ribbon with my quilts as long as I like them myself.

Love, Evelien, Holland

Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting said...

Kathy, I'm sure that I'll go CRAZY if I don't win your BLUE cover book so that I can make doll quilts out of SCRAPS of fabric. Who would mind a slight defect on the back of the book. Put a SCRAP piece of plastic wrap over the sticky part, trim the excess, and, voila, a great copy of the beautiful BLUE book! No more sticky, you can see through the plastic, book is ready to use. CRAZY, huh! PS: We're supposed to sew 'straight' lines? Oops! Where's the fun in that?

Wendy said...

I am definitely hooked on little quilts and I love your little ones.

Sharon said...

I'd be crazy not to want your book even stuck with glue. My scraps are waiting for ideas in blue...and red, and green, and yellow.

Anonymous said...

Well, out of the blue you decided to run this wonderful, crazy give-away of one of your books that appears to be filled to the brim with quilts made from scraps (beautiful scraps, yes, but still scraps). Thank you so much for the contest, the comments are funny! I just bought your new book and am loving it.

Jackie said...

I love reading your blog and would love to win that darling book for a future doll quilt for my darling granddaughters. Presently I am working on a Carol Doak paper pieced pattern using scraps for a crazy quilt of many shades of blue!!
