Mega Scrap Giveaway!

I haven't done a giveaway on here in a loooooong time, so how's 'bout we take care of that today? And to make up for it, I'm gonna do a HUGE scrap giveaway. Like Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus big. I know, that's a whole lotta shark scraps.

First up, my friend Brenda from Pink Castle Fabrics is offering the lovely scraps you see pictured above. There's lots of Michael Miller and Moda prints in there (that charcoal Dumb Dot is one of my favs...it goes with just about anything), and the pack weighs 1 lb 7.4 oz, which is almost 4 yards! by weight.


As if that's not enough, I'm going to toss is a giant heap o' scraps from my stash too! You see those fabric bins and plastic drawers at the top of the photo below? Yeah, all 8 of them are stuffed to the brim with various scraps assorted by color. I'm gonna yank out an indecent amount of scraps from them once we pull a winner. You can choose to have me include scraps that coordinate with the bundle above, or you can take the rainbow road and give me free reign to toss in whatever I want ;) Your call.

And because I always like to include a handmade item in every giveaway, there's a second prize up for grabs. It's a small clutch/wallet I made using Keyka Lou's Pocket Clutch pattern.

So. What must you do to enter? Good question.

1) Leave a comment.
2) For a second entry, blog about this giveaway, and leave a comment telling me so :)

The winner will be announced Sunday evening (Jan. 15). The pocket clutch is open to Internationals, but unfortunately due to the weight of the scrap package, I have to limit that one to U.S. residents only.


P.S. A good way to use your current scraps is to join Brenda's Bust Yo Stash! Quilt Along!


Wow that's a lot of scraps!! Thanks for giving some away :)

Sounds like fun! Count me in, thanks!!

WOW is right! That's tons of scraps & I would love to play with them!

Scraps, Scraps and more Scraps...You can never have too many. Thanks for spreading the Scrappy Love.

I love scraps! This year, I started a Dear Jane quilt, which is such a fun/challenging/slightly insane way to use some of my scraps.

That's a ton of scraps! Thanks for the chance :)

yeah that is awesome :) love this pouch. I think Keyka Lou makes darn cute patterns.

I love both of these! I really need to make up that pattern too.

That's a lot of fabulous scraps. Thanks so much for the chance to win them! the pouch is really lovely too :)

I am going to show my husband the photo of your stash so that he appreciates I am only a novice fabric lover (hoarder!) :) Although my stash is nowhere near as organised as yours, so it might backfire on me!

Oh my goodness! What a great set of fabric scraps!! Love them!

How wonderful! Thanks for the great giveaway!

Scraps, scraps, wonderful scraps! This is a great giveaway, thanks for having it. Please put my name in for the drawing.

Ohhh! I have been looking to win some scraps! I need to build up my supply a little, especially if I am starting my 4x5 bee this year. Thanks for the chance to win!

Great giveaway! What if...I live in Canada but I paypal you the cost of shipping? It's worth a try for that amazing stack of fabric goodness! :)

These are awesome scraps!! Your fabric looks so pretty and organized!

Your fabric stash is so neat. Want to come to my house and help me get my fabric organized and folded neatly?..

I love the way you store your fabric. I think I am going to need to look into some bins like those :)

what stash beauty! thanks for the chance! rainbow for me!

@Melissa - it's the Itso storage system from Target. I like them because they're kinda like Legos and you can easily tack on more storage if you run out of room ;)

Lovely giveaway!!! tks fr sharing! xx

How fun! I love seeing your stash...pretty impressive! I think I may need to follow your lead on the scrap organization...seems like a great system!

I would LOVE some scraps!!! :)

You're stash is awesome! Thanks for sharing!

Awesome...like the new blog by the way.

What a great giveaway. On a fabric diet so these would be no-cal for me!

I think there is a real scrappy movement going on in the blogging community right now. Must be after effects from all that Christmas sewing--lots of scraps left. I love scrappy projects and would love to use your scraps. New scraps are exciting, some of mine, I have already used that pattern several times and it isn't as fun. Thanks.

Oh, those scraps are fabulous! Would love to win.

Wow! I would love to win! Awesome scraps!

Wow! that is an incredible amount of scraps. Right now I have about a shoe box full lol. Some day I will have enough to fill 8 drawers I am sure.

Ooooh...I love it! I'm just getting started, so I don't have any scraps to join in all the scrappy fun with. But I bet these would do just great ;).

I can't resist other people's scraps! I have way too many of my own, but is that stopping me from entering this giveaway? Heck no!

Scraps are good for so many things. New scraps are awesome.

Count me in! One can never have enough scraps to work with.

I would love a chance to win some scraps. I'm starting an applique baby quilt that requires a slew of fabrics, and I don't have enough variety in my small stash. I would love to mix it up with someone else's scraps as well!

Thanks for the opportunity to win your giveaway.

What a FANTASTIC giveaway! I would be so thrilled to win the scraps... We have a new baby on the way and I've been feeling crafty! :)

Oh it would be so much fun to win someone else's scraps/treasures! Thank you for the chance!

Awesome giveaway. If I win, I'd love for you have rainbow reign and choose the scraps!

Love that! I could use some more fabric, I'm new into sewing/quilting so I could use a nice bundle like that to make some more things! Tahnks!

that looks like an awesome stack 'o fabric! that would be an awesome win, thanks for the chance

All I can think of is SCRAPS, with all the wonderful scrap projects appearing on quilt blogs in January! My fingers (and toes too!) are crossed, and if you throw in scraps too, please surprise me! The first 3 months of 2012 are going to be finishes - because I just have to! -- and scrap quilts, the more the merrier.

I'm so excited! Just call me a Pointer Sister! I love, love, love scraps. Some of them I cut into squares sorted by size in empty mayonnaise jars all lined up on a shelf. The colors look pretty, too. I hope I win - either one - doesn't matter

Wow, Your scraps my treasure.... Thanks and congrats to the winner

Hi KaeLin. I posted it on thequiltingboard.com I don't have a blog of my own yet but I plan to after I get back home to Alaska from vacation. Quilt on my quietly friends!

great for making a scrappy quilt

Would love your "scraps" a new home:)

Ooh pretty! :) I must say I love seeing everyone else's scraps this time of year -- especially since my stash resembles most peoples scraps.

Great giveaway! If I won, I'd definitely give you free reign to go all rainbowy on the scrap selection. I only started quilting this last fall, so I don't have enough scraps yet to make a quilt with, but I'm trying to accumulate more, and winning this would help :) I have rather grandiose dreams of a bottled rainbows quilt, a postage stamp quilt, and a ticker tape quilt... I've been so inspired by all the stash-busting and scrap quilting going on around the quilting blogs, and there are so many great scrap quilt tutorials to choose from. Thank you for the chance to win!

What a wonderful giveaway!

I'm just a beginner at quilting and I'm afraid I'm seriously addicted but I need to build a stash before I can start stash busting haha. I'd love to win, it's my favourite color scheme!

Oh I want to win either one!

I'm new to quilting and start to fall in love with it after joining the quilt along with Jennie at Clover & Violet...I would love to win either one! Thanks for the giveaway!

Love scraps! Thank you for the generous giveaway! ryansarahn at gmail

What a wonderful and generous giveaway!

iamamryburke @ gmail.com

Wow! Angela sent me over and she was so kind to do so. I love your stash arrangement. I may have to snoop around and see if you talk about your office and especially those cubes. Happy day and thanks for the giveaway and eye candy.

thanks for the fun giveaway...ive been chopping squares out of my scraps loving every minute of it.

What a very generous giveaway! I'm new to quilting so my stash is almost non-existent. This would help. Thanks!

I believe in recycling and upcycling and rarely buy for quilting unless I have absolutely no other choice. Thank goodness that my mom-in-law is an avid quilter and I get all her scraps! ;o) I will take anything and whatever and put it to good use. That's the fun thing about designing just for "arts" sake. ;o) Your scraps would be welcomed and a great bonus! Thanks for a fantastic give-away! Hope I win! ;o)

I know I'm increasing the odds of not being selected by adding this comment, but I'm a relatively newbie to quilting and have very little stash! I'd be over the moon thrilled to receive some scraps!! Thanks for your generosity and sense of fun: great way to share with other quilters!


Found you on flickr because of your rain or shine quilt. I am in love with it. I'm new to quilting, so this would help me build my fabric stash. Here's hoping!

All those scraps sure would go a loooong way toward feeding this quilting addiction I've developed. So I blogged about the giveaway here:


What a wonderful giveaway!

Beautiful scraps, that would be so much fun to win!

Lovely! Hope I still have birthday luck from yesterday.

Your fabric storage is SOOOOO PRETTY! I try to keep mine this organized but I usually fail at it and end up with piles of fabric everywhere!

Scraps! Scraps! I love scraps.

What a yummy bundle of scraps! Thanks Kaelin for the giveaway! =)

That is a ton of scraps. How fun. Thanks for the giveaway my dear.
