Want Some Fabric?

'Allo! Anybody want some fabric? Silly question, I hope. I have a decent-sized stack of fabric left over from my recent quilt. I am not going to use it. Most of it I bought for the quilt, and while I love it I would truly be hoarding all of it because I have nary an idea of what I would use any of it for, so instead of waiting for inspiration to strike I'm writing a really long run-on sentence to let you know I'll be offering it up to a good home.


So let's see what's on offer, eh?


These cuts are all different sizes, and I couldn't even begin to guess what's what. Some are a true fat quarter, some less, some more, but all are an amount that you could use for something. The little pile in the upper right corner consists of small scraps that are still enough to be used, and a pile of extra five inch squares that were left over from the border piecing. Some didn't get used in the quilt but I'm including them, because hoarding.

As far as quality goes--most of these were ordered from online quilt shops, some came from Joann's, some were in bags of scraps I was given so I have no idea from where or when they came to be. However, I've used all of them (or their equivalent), but if you have higher standards than me you might want to weed through a little because some of them do feel a little different. 

I was a little disappointed that I didn't have more left over to give away, but some were so fussy cut and choppy it seemed ridiculous to pass them on. It felt akin to asking you to hold my trash and then running away. 

SO, the rules are easy. Leave a comment on this post, saying anything you'd like. I'll randomly choose a winner and notify/post here shortly thereafter. I'm leaving this open until 11:59 pm ET on September 30th, so that gives you about two weeks. I'm super sorry for this last bit, but due to weight/postage costs this giveaway is open to US residents only (I hated writing that--it makes me feel quite Scrooge-like). 


Good luck!

  2. I would love to play with those fabrics. I am new to sewing and don't have much fabric yet. Trying to build up a stash enough to see how different prints play together in projects.

    And - I just love all the thought you put into all the blocks. The sheep block is a cool idea for the middle of the quilt!

  3. I know who would be super happy to receive this. . . . . . . . . . My wife.
    Of late she is very much into making small items with felt / flannel / fabric.
    Her woe is that one can't get good fabric with lovely prints in India.
    I know your issue of weight/postage etc. To overcome that, I could give you an address of our friend in San Jose who will pass it on to us.

  7. A donation to a quilting group connected with your local senior center would be a good use. This is what I have done in the past.

  8. I totally understand the postage issue. Shipping outside the country has always been really expensive.

  9. My heart literally skipped a beat when I saw your post! Me ME MEEEE! I make lots of baby bibs, mug rugs and scrappy projects, so I promise these fabrics would be put to good use!

  16. I will hold your trash and let you run away, even for the tiny stuff. I am new to sewing and I'm building my stash. Although I have promised myself to start a quilt, because what's the point of building a stash if I never use it. I think I have fear I will waste the fabric, even scraps. Have a great day.
