Giveaway!


The nice folks at Annie's have given me not one, but TWO online classes to giveaway!  That's right, one person will win the Learn to Quilt with Scraps class and another will win the Learn to Make Pineapple Quilts class!

The Learn to Quilt with Scraps class is the class that I have been working through the last couple of weeks.  The class comes with three scrap quilt patterns along with tips for cutting and containing your scraps and valuable information on how to put colors together in your scrap quilts.

Preview the Learn to Quilt with Scraps class by clicking HERE.

I was fortunate to see Gyleen demonstrate her method for making the pineapple block in person a couple of years ago.  There really is no easier way to make this block!  This class also includes patterns for three quilts!

For one extra entry, help spread the word!  Share about this giveaway on your blog, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc. and come back here and leave a comment telling me that you shared. (optional extra entry)

Looks like a great giveaway. My favorite scrap quilt that I've made is my rail fence. I took one and a half inch strips of all of my scraps and put it together. It is on my couch, and I just enjoy looking at it every day. So simple but so magnificent.

My favorite scrap quilt pattern is the only pattern that I really followed for 99% of the way. It is Gyleen's "Bricks, Cobblestones and Pebbles" quilt that was tested as a Facebook Quilt Along.

Usually I don't follow a pattern very well. I would love to take an online class from Gyleen.

I'm a fan of any scrap quilt, but I think my favorite is the strippy blocks.

Melanie Winters said...

I love making scrap quilts. I would have to say that string quilts are my favorite to make. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Darlene Parker said...

I have made a scrap bed runner following Gyleens mystery instructions it was such fun. Love the finished result using fabric from my stash!!!!

Sherry said...

I love scrap quilts. I love using any of the "old standards", like Shoo Fly, Bow Tie, Dresden Plate, etc. but with a lot of different fabrics.

Thank you for this giveaway.

I love opportunities to use the many scraps I've accumulated over the years. I enjoyed making a Chinese Coins quilt, but was most challenged by this year's Bricks, Cobblestones, and Pebbles mystery. Used up a lot of scraps in the process.

I just finished "Winding Road", love the pattern - anything goes as far as fabric, so far it is my favourite scrap pattern.

Dru said...

I haven't made a truly scrappy quilt yet. One of these books just might help me remedy that situation. Thanks for the giveaway!

BJ said...

I have only done one scrap quilt from a Bonnie Hunter mystery.

Debbie in Texas said...

I shared this post to Quiltin Kousins on face book and to my facebook page
I really don't have a favorite scrappy pattern
the last scrappy quilt I finished was Gyleen's
but, I do love to make scrappy log cabin quilts
take care, Debbie debbiealleytx @ yahoo.com

Carol C Thomas said...

I like scrappy log cabin quilts. I have been saving lots of scraps and getting close to making a log cabin quilt.

Limbania said...

My favorite scrap pattern is the Pennsylvania block...or that is what Mary Jane told me it was. It was the last quilt she made and the gals in PA did a block swap. I love that pattern.

It would be fun to learn some new tips and tricks for making either of those projects. I've never made a pineapple quilt before.

Smiles,
Kelly

so many to choose from, but the first one that comes to mind is a disappearing 9 patch.

Jules said...

I've done scrap quilts from a few writers and the one I've loved best has been Gyleen's Mystery 2016. I can hear her in our instructions and I love that! Plus great pattern and now I'm having fun quilting it.

MagicQuilter said...

Between Gyleen and Bonnie Hunter, I've really gotten into scrap quilting. Can't wait to read about how to make the best color choices!

Barbara Black said...

Log cabins are my favorite, in any style.

Great giveaway. I love Bonnie Hunters scrap quilts. She's amazing, but this looks like a great book to try as well. And I have always wanted to do a pineapple crazy quilt. Too many to choose, too little time!! Thanks so much for sharing

Kathy E. said...

Scrappy quilts are my favorites! One of the scrappy quilt patterns that I like the best is one on my list to make. It's called The Stacks Quilt Pattern on Etsy. It reminds me of tall, tall stacks of books. As a teacher, books are a serious part of my life!

Linda Atkins said...

I would love to know how to use all my scraps. I have oodles of triangles, squares and rectangles that are a stash all their own. I use them to design my own quilts. My grandchildren are each getting one for Christmas and now I am working on a wedding gift, a play on lights and darks. They have been labors of love and so much fun seeing them evolve.

I love sewing scraps together, then squaring them up to make a block and making a bunch and putting them together to make a quilt. Gyleen has been to me guild so I would love to take her class.

QuiltShopGal said...

What a wonderful giveaway. I bought the Pineapple ruler/book ages ago, but have not yet used it. This class would certainly get me going. And, I've never met a scrap quilt pattern I didn't like. Sorry, as I can't think of a favorite scrap quilt pattern. Certainly the Pineapple quilt, log cabin and Bonnie Hunter's designs are all great scrap quilt designs, but I also think many designs, in general, will work for scrap quilts too.

My favorite scrap block is the classic string block. Anyone can do them, they're easy, fast, look cute when made small and just as nice when made bigger and there's any number of settings. thanks for the giveaway opportunity.
