Giveaway Winners!
(I haven't forgotten, really. I've just been a little distracted.)

The winner of the first bundle o' scraps, picked by RGN, is Kritta22, who wrote:
I have started cutting my scraps into 4.5 scraps for a scrappy star quilt I'm trying to make. It might take me a few to get there but it's fun!
Also I want to make a ticker tape quilt. That uses little scraps!!
Thanks for the giveaway! I'm off to read more of your blog.
Good luck with all the change in your world this year!!

I think it's a great idea to pre-cut scraps to a certain size and have them ready to go for a future project!

It was a tough call for blogger's choice, but I have to go with I Plead Quilty! who wrote:
My scraps are immediately stuffed into one of two scrap drawers. Once it reaches critical mass (read here: I can't close or open the drawers any more) I bribe my daughter with a movie, sugar, cash, whatever it takes to sort them by color into large zip bags. Sometimes it's accurate, sometimes not so much, but I get to keep sewing while she sorts for me.

Now why didn't I think of that before??

Congratulations to both!
- please send me a note via the contact link in the shop with your address, and I'll get these bundles packaged up this weekend and on their way!

And Thanks to all who took the time to leave a comment and offer my scraps a good home. I truly appreciate it!

n.b. The quilt above was made with scraps for the pinwheels and yardage for the sashing and back. Each pinwheel requires (2) 4 1/2" squares of a print and (2) 4 1/2" squares of the background.
