  2. I think the craziest thing I do with fabric scraps is store them away thinking that I'll definitely use them one day! I recently gave a way a big bag of dressmaking scraps as I realised I wasn't going to use them and I'm trying to use my quilting scraps rather than storing them indefinitely! Thanks for the give away!

  4. I have to admit....I just thru away a bunch of scraps ( I have three different bins FULL). I was one of the hardest things I have done in a long time, LOL. But it was full of very old material, and I just needed to declutter! Thank yo for this give away!

  5. I hadn't heard of this book, but the subtitle caught my eye. I'd LOVE to find a great use for my scraps!

    I think the craziest thing I've done with them so far is to cut them into tiny (1/4") bits and use them as stuffing for the tailor's ham I made. Boy, was that tedious!

  6. For christmas gifts last year I made gifts to save some money, I used fabric scraps to try to save even more money! I made some fabric scraps stationary...I really just sewed little squares of fabric scraps onto the front of some cards, added envelopes and tied them up nicely. It was fun to be able to do something with some of my very favorite fabric scraps. I also wrapped gifts in the brown craft paper and made ribbons out of fabric scraps to fancy up the brown packages instead of buying expensive paper.

  8. What a lovely book. I am working on small scrappy blocks, just helter skelter joined scraps as I work on each project. I don't have nearly enough yet to make anything, but they will represent pretty much everything I've worked on for the past few years and I am looking forward to making a quilted throw with them when I can.

  9. Thank you for the opportunity! I have looked at this book and it has so many wonderful patterns. I don't know that it is crazy (eye of the beholder right?) but I am make "found fabric from my bits. It is mindless and I love being able to put them to some fun great use.

  22. Scraps? I don't really have scraps. The tiny pieces go to my my sisters MQG where someone uses them for dog beds for shelters. Anything else gets used.
    Thanks for the giveaway! I gave my sister this book but don't have one for myself.

  23. I'm making a scrappy quilt right now. I'm scared that all the different fabrics won't look "right" together, but I'm going forward anyhow!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm not so sure it was crazy -- maybe ingenious! But... one Easter I was creating an Easter bowl with eggs and needed "grass". Not finding any in the house I cut strips of felt scraps I had and came up with a beautiful, colorful, new kind of Easter basket grass! See it here -- http://creativemomentsbycary.blogspot.com/2012/04/felt-easter-grass-and-chocolate-eggs.html. Thanks for the wonderful book offer!

  25. I made a rainbow log cabin quilt last year. Not really crazy but it sure was fun!

    I already own this book. I've made two quilts from it and right now my 7 year old is making the ticker tape quilt from it. If I won, I'd send it to my sister who just got her first sewing machine for Christmas. Now she is hooked too!

    ReplyDelete
  26. The craziest thing I did with some scraps was give them away!!!! I was being overwhelmed by them and then of course I regretted it as soon as I did it. Good thing it hasn't taken me long to get my collection back.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love that book--it's been on my wish list for a while now.

  28. I hate to admit it...I haven't done anything crazy with my fabric scraps. I guess I'm kinda boring!

  29. I'd love to win this great book! Craziest thing I've done with scraps...make teeny tiny clothes for clothespin dolls...not so crazy after all. Thanks!

  31. Does organizing them count as crazy? In my book it does...it usually takes me a LONG time to get to organizing them so when I'm actually in the mood to do it I consider myself a little "crazy".

    ReplyDelete
  32. I've separated my scraps in bags by color....just waiting for the perfect simple quilt! I love this book (got it from the library) - so many great ideas!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm trying to use more of my scraps now. I have enough fabric for several lifetimes! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Nothing really, but I do remember my mom letting us use her scraps when I was little. And now letting my 6 year old use my scraps for her creative inventions. A couple of weeks ago she sewed a necklace. It was pretty creative, but the smile on her face when she finished was awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I let my daughters play with my scraps and sometimes it gets a little messy in my sewing room!

  36. I've been hoping to get my hands on a copy of this book, but purchasing isn't in the budget right now! I wish I had a good story about my scraps, but it seems like the pile just keeps growing and needs some serious management.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I JUST checked this out from the library and would love to win a copy as opposed to scanning my favorite patterns to my computer :) Craziest thing... hmmm... well, it isn't crazy really, but my daughter LOVES my scraps makes her own "quilts" with them :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Thanks for the opportunity! I love this book-I've gotten it out from the library a couple of times but haven't tackled any of the projects. With my scraps, I have about 1/2 of a block done of lazy gal quilting's Lego quilt. Only 99.99% to go!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I made a queen size quilt from randomly made blocks. Many pieces incorporated in the blocks were 1/2-1 inch. Crazy, yes. Thank you for the chance to win.

  40. I've been working on making little fabric easter eggs out of my scraps this year. So much fun!

  41. Thanks for the chance to win! I made a drawstring bag to hold some of my kids lacing cards with my scraps, although that probably doesn't qualify as crazy! Email is in my profile! :)

  43. I'm loving these scrap stories! Haven't made anything crazy, but I organize my scraps into 4 different sizes and that's prolly crazy for some. Ha! Thanks for the lively give-a-way! Joy at toolboy dot net

  44. I really only call it a scrap if its scrappy binding size, otherwise its usable for applique or art quilts or paper piecing or lots of other things. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm saving up all my scraps for a nice quilt...I bet Sunday Morning Quilts would provide much inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I throw all my scraps in a giant tote, and hope that someday I'll have the courage to make a scrappy quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I checked this book out from the library, but it was great. I would love to have a copy of my own! I can't say I've really done anything "crazy" with my scraps, but I need to get crazy in using some of them. My current scrap storage is nearly full!

  48. I guess making a crazy quilt is the craziest I have gotten with my scraps. It is fun to see how they come together. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I've got lots of scraps ~ maybe the craziest thing I've done with scraps is to buy some. At the end of the year my LFS sells grab bags of scraps that are left over from bolts. There's usually lots of fabric scraps that I don't have and I've got to have them! teehee
    Thanks for the giveaway ~ this book has been on my wish list for a while now ~ would be lovely to win!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I am new to quilting and would love to add this to my "stash"...thank you

    ReplyDelete
  54. Right now the craziest thing I am doing is as I get the scrapes, I iron them with starch and lay them flat in a box. When I get enough of them, I am going to make a really scrapy quilt. Like just start sewing the scrapes until I have big enough blocks, square up the blocks and sew those together. Should be a pretty busy quilt in color and in my sewing!

  55. The craziest thing I did with scraps is make a bunny chew toy out of them. It's basically strips of fabric cut into short pieces and held together in the center by a string. The bunny loves munching on it so I will definitely make more!

  56. I use my tiny scrap pieces for stuffing plush toys for my son and his friends, there are some fabrics I just can't bear to throw away no matter how small and useless the scrap is!

  57. I've never done anything crazy with fabric scraps, but I did just use a button and some necklace chain on my latest quilt.

  59. I'm not very good at using my scraps... I recently just made a tote bag and used some up, but this book would be so helpful in giving me ideas for my scraps! Thanks for the chance to win a copy! mbauer.arts[at]gmail[dot]com

    ReplyDelete
  60. I'm still fairly new to sewing/quilting (quilting about a year or so and only for a couple months on a fully functional machine), so I haven't done too much with my scraps, but I do love the look of scrappy quilts and if I'm going to spend that much money on fabric, I am darn well going to use every bit! :)

    So, I'm making some of those lovely x plus blocks when I have big enough scraps. Eventually I'll have enough for a quilt - I'm up to about 4 or 5 now. I also just made an envelope closure pillow cover for a pillow on my couch using selvages, scraps, and stash fabric. Not crazy really, but cute and useful and saving scrap from garbage!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I sort my scraps by color and also into pieces and string are separated. I have mad a large quilt similar to a scrap vomit quilt. I love it, but hubs calls it the ugly quilt! Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I used all of the scraps from my 4 granddaughters quilts and 6 great grand baby's quilt made
    My daughter a queen quilt for her bed.
    crazy because some of the scraps were so small.
    would love to win this book.

  63. I'm about 1/2 way through my 1st quilt, but I've been saving up my scraps to make a rag rug to match it. Sometimes I'll toss one to the cat to play with though. He seems to like it. ;)

  64. not crazy but, dumb.
    I was overwhelmed trying to organize my sewing room and just threw away a large box of scraps.
    I feel the pain every time I look for a "little piece"
    thanks for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  65. Sad to say I haven't really done much! I save them all, but really haven't had the guts to do anything yet! This book looks beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Just found your blog and ordered that great split basket pattern that Dear Stella highlighted. Would love to win autographed book. Kellee20@yahoo.com I think craziest with fabric is impromptu with the five youngest grandchildren, playing dress-up with just pieces of fabric, scarves and belts is super fun for 2-5 year olds!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Mostly I think I just save too many scraps -- so many that I never have time to work with all of them! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Thanks for a chance to win!! I think the craziest thing I do with my scraps is save all of them! Forever!!! lol

    ReplyDelete
  70. I don't tend to do crazy things with them - I have cut 1-inch squares to piece and make hotpads before, I guess that's kind of crazy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. That Gumdrop quilt is awesome! I have yet to make a quilt and really want to. Craziest thing I've done with my scraps? Probably hording them and not letting them go despite a move which resulted in getting rid of 2/3 of our stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I'm currently using them to completely improv piece a baby quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I have an exposed pipe running the length of my bedroom so I made a cozy for it. I like it much better now.

  74. I've been using my scraps for english paper piecing. a 2" square makes a 3/4" hexagon. Someday I hope to make a quilt out of about a thousand of those little hexagons. My great-great-grandmother made the most gorgeous quilt I have ever seen out of english paper piecing diamonds, and I want to follow her lead. My email is the.real.mccoy.jr@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  75. Thanks for the giveaway. I used my scraps as cat toys. Our cat loved to play with them while I was doing whatever. Now that she died I just throw them away.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I haven't done a ton of sewing - making twirly skirts for my daughter and a patchwork bag for her were about my craziest things. I am, however, really interested in sewing more and have the dream of making a quilt someday. My cousin owns a quilt shop so I would have some support. Thanks for the chance to win this beautiful book! Stephanie

  77. Hi,
    Thanks for asking this question as I just spent last night sorting out my scraps trying to get inspired to make something with them. I love reading everyone's ideas.
    I'm thinking of starting on a quilt project so this book would be so great for ideas and projects. Thanks for the giveaway!

  78. I only recently started quilting so don't really have many scraps. I do think storing them away forever is silly though! I just don't have enough to do anything with yet.

    I saw your book in Barnes and Noble the other weekend and smiled. I'd love to win a copy

  83. I flipped through this book at Joann's a few months ago and have been dreaming about it ever since!

  91. I've been following Amanda Jean's blog for quite some time now, and was elated when she gave away a copy of her book. Unfortunately, I didn't win, so this giveaway got me even more excited!
    I'm relatively new at quilting, so I don't have a massive hoard of scraps-yet. So far, with fabric scraps, I've made a few mini quilts with tiny squares as gifts. This book would be a great inspiration for more gift ideas :)

    Thank you!

  92. I don't have enough scraps yet, but I'm dying to make a scrappy quilt. They are always the most colorful. I do give some of my scraps to my daughter who likes to make clothes for her dolls and bears.

    ReplyDelete
  93. that looks like wonderful Liberty fabric. Craziest thing I do with my scraps is cut them into 1 1/2" squares and make four patches, which I then sew into larger blocks of some sort which will make a quilt some day.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I just started making scrappy trip around the world blocks. I have fabrics from so many projects that don't coordinate at all, but the craziness of it is starting to grow on me. I love Amanda Jean's blog, I've made quilts from a couple of her tutorials, and I'd love to own this book. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I have sewn my scraps into 600 spool blocks. I had scraps for the spools and scraps or the background. I was surprised at how long it took me to cut it all then sew them. But what a quilt it was when it was done.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Before she passed away, my husband's grandmother give me some of her fabric scraps. The prettiest was sack cloth with blueberries on it. Years after her passing I used pieces of that sack cloth to make an apron for her daughter...my Mother-in-law. As soon as she saw that fabric she knew it was from her mother's kitchen. I thought it fitting that it should be in the kitchen again...and what sweet memories we remember.

  97. I think the craziest thing I do with my scraps is shove them in a 5-gallon tub instead of organizing them in any way! :)

  100. My scraps from one quilt have been used in 4 small quilts, so far. My sister and I have been doing some fun sew alongs we've found online and I am determined to not buy any fabric to do them. We live in different states so we share as we go along with texts and pictures. It is so much fun. We have really connected doing this.

    ReplyDelete
  101. This book has been on my buy list for some time... Craziest thing I've done with scraps, is to throw them away! Eeek... but you know, when the urge to declutter strikes, there is not much to be done :)

    ReplyDelete
  102. I tend to hoard my scraps because obviously I will one day NEED each and every tiny little piece!

    ReplyDelete
  103. When I was a kid my mother was afraid to let me learn how to sew because, as a clumsy child, she was sure I'd stick myself real good and need to go to the hospital or something. Naturally, this only increased my interest and at some point I managed to abscond with a needle, a spool of thread, and some fabric scraps, and went on to make a pincushion from the scraps, stuffed with the scraps of the scraps and some cotton balls filched from the bathroom :P That's probably the craziest I've done so far, but now I keep nearly all of my scraps, from both sewing and knitting, so I'm sure new adventures await them!

  105. I've been eyeing this book for a long time! I just started quilting, currenlty working on my 3rd (mini)quilt top and this book is exactly my style :)

    I still have to come up with a crazy idea for my scraps. My craziest so far, for fleece scraps, is tying them together and making cat toys from them. They looove strings of fleece and it's so much fun to play with them and the strings. Even the slightest unexpected movement from the string will make them go crazy :).

  107. I really love the scrapper's delight quilt. I wish someone would make me one. I guess it's up to me to use all my scraps and make one of my own. I haven't made anything too crazy with my scraps in the past - just clutches, hair bows, wrist cuffs, pieced headbands, and appliques. Thanks! kristie_keely(at)yahoo(d0t)com

  117. I made a big log cabin quilt with scraps of my mom's. That's not very crazy really, but I actually don't even like many of the scraps now (I made it 15 years ago), though overall I still like the quilt, especially because my grandma ended up hand-quilting it for me because she was laid up with a broken ankle and didn't have any of her own quilts to work on, so I was a martyr and let her quilt mine for me. (ha! if this hadn't happened, I'm not sure the quilting would be finished yet today!) Ok, I think this qualifies as a crazy story anyway. steeplechaser29 at yahoo dot com

  118. i made my own breast pads because I didn't want to go to the store and keep buying them..not to crazy but more resourcful lol

  120. Saving even little tiny pieces would be the craziest thing I guess. I just recently threw away a huge bag because I knew I could never use them.

  121. I having been saving my scraps for a long time. A couple of months ago I gave a big bag of them to a friend to use. I'm so happy they found a good home and now I don't have to look at them and feel quilty. Thanks for the chance!

  123. The craziest thing I do with scraps is keeping pieces that are smaller than 1.5" square;. And I have to say, I think Aurifil upped the pretty embroidery floss packaging-ante. I never remember if email is in my profile so, anotheryarn[at]yahoo[dot]com.

  125. Not too crazy, but I made a lap quilt entirely out of scraps. I think I even pieced the batting together! The only thing I had to buy was some binding fabric.

    Thanks!

  129. I really haven't done anything wild with my scraps. I usually use them to make donation quilts. However, my granddaughters love them and have stitched them together in some pretty wild combinations and used them for their dolls.

  145. The craziest thing I have done with scraps was give them away! Ha. (In all seriousness, they went to an excellent home.) But my husband thinks I am crazy with I leave fabric scraps (thin strips and threads) around the yard for the birds in the spring.

  146. I Have not done a lot with my scraps. I sort through them more than anything, looking for just the perfect scrap to finish another sewing project. Maybe if I win a wonderful book I will use them to make a quilt :)

  147. I've made several scrap quilts for family members, but haven't gotten around to making one for myself yet. That's next on my list!
    The most unusual thing I've done with scraps though was to make a "scrappy lampshade" (I ripped the fabric off the wire frame and then cut fabric into thin strips and knotted them onto the frame) It's colorful, cheerful, and unique!

  148. I have been wanting this book since before Christmas. I haven't done anything too crazy with my scraps, but I find myself using them for lots of little projects - small bags, luggage tags, pot holders. Some of them are even cut up into squares and strips, ready for a quilt. (barb2124(at)comcast(dot)net.

  151. Me? Crazy? I am close to being deemed certifiable with saving my scraps, I need to find more time in my day to actually do something with them! They are overflowing! ...or assign myself time to reduce/reuse! I love that book! TIA! B-)

  152. Right now I am making nursing pads with my flannel and batting scraps. I've made baby mobiles with my quilting scraps. Don't know if that classifies as "crazy" though :)

  154. Two years ago I used my scraps cut 1.25" square to make a quilt with over 14,000 pieces to represent a portion of the Alzheimers care givers in Iowa, at that time. I used 1.5 " sashing and corner posts and 2" scrappy borders and scrappy binding. I then donated it to the Alzheimers Assoc. for a fund-raiser, but I haven't heard if they have done that yet.

    ReplyDelete
  155. So far I haven't done anything crazy with my scraps. They are stuffed in glass canning jars right now. We are in the middle of a short succession of multiple moves, but I hope to be able to do some scrappy sewing in September!

  165. I made a very scrappy string quilt, it was a quilt as you go and I never could figure out the sashing so I zigzagged the blocks together. It's sort of a quilt, it's very cheerful and Scooter, my 18 year old Yorkie poo loves it!

  171. I gathered up some scraps and made a patchwork soft book for a little friend of mine who was learning his colors. It had 10 pages each with a different color of scraps pieced together in 10 different designs. Maybe not so crazy, but it was cute and the baby learned his colors in no time!

    ReplyDelete
  172. It's not really crazy but if I'm using some of my favorite fabrics, I'll put the littlest, tiniest pieces in a plastic bag. So later, when I'm going through my bins, I'll run across these baggies full of little tiny scraps-just makes me laugh at myself. Thanks for the chance!:)

  178. My grandchildren are visiting, I have been doing some improvisational block piecing with my 6 year old grandson, and having a blast while doing so. Will and I have been creating his designs in fabric as well. He sketches his new quilt in great detail, we "shop" for fabric in Grandma's stash, then construct his vision together. He tells me he needs to really practice his sewing while he's with me since his Momma doesn't sew. A year ago I would not have dreamed I would be having an improv quilt camp-learn to sew with my grandson.

  191. I have a slight obsession with quilts. It's like they're home and I'm homesick without them. All of my quilts were passed down for generations in my family and each is deeply treasured. The problem is they have been loved so much they're starting to fall apart. Sadly, they sit in the closet because I haven't trusted my sewing skills to mend them. I'm happy to report I have signed up for a class on April 6th to improve my stitches and am hoping to give my quilts life again. I can't wait until I can start making my own treasures to pass down to my children.
