Far, far away I hope! From my pile to yours.
I spent all evening sorting and cutting and only made it through 1 1/2 baskets! But I promised to post this today so I will just have to have another giveaway after I finish the sorting.
My method of sorting:
I have 3 sizes of scraps in my baskets. 1) large; suitable for almost any project 2) medium; suitable for most piecing or applique scrap quilts and 3) "Scrids"; scrids are what I call pieces that are best suited for applique, as they are often odd shaped and would require to much work for me to sort through and press for piecing.
Heaven forbid, I should giveaway the last bit of any one fabric, so, I first cut a 5" strip for myself and put the remaining piece in a pile (or actually 2) to send away. The pile on the right is what I consider "large" good size scraps suitable for almost any project. The pile on the left is what I call "scrids".
They could ALL be yours. Simply leave me a comment on how you handle your scraps and I will chose one by random. (I have tried to figure out the random generator, but it is more likely I will throw all your names in a hat and let Mr. CG pick one). I am willing to ship anywhere that accepts Global Priority. So please feel free to comment wherever you are. I'm looking forward to hearing from you. I think I fixed my "no reply" comment, thanks to Lori at Humble Quilts, but if you have any trouble feel free to e-mail me.
I will pick the winner and post it next Friday (January 23). Since I am new to this, it will give me an entire week to get organized (and to read all your comments)
This is the result of the cutoff ends. If anyone can figure out what to do with these little gems, I would be happy to send them off to you.
