Yes, this will test how truly sad we ALL are. Minick and Simpson are having a give-away! Just comment on this post by Midnight, Monday April 27th and all this could be yours! Yep - the scraps from cutting out 3 quilts. This is our new Wiscasset collection that won't even be on your quilt shop shelves until this Fall. Actually, we will pack a large Priority Mail box chock full of this and other Minick and Simpson scraps for you to enjoy. I will even throw in some Minick and Simpson patterns to use it all up.
Some people might think this is petty or even tongue-in-cheek, but quilters know we cannot throw this away, and sadly, I certainly cannot keep anymore around here. Here is a 60 quart container full of nothing but Minick and Simpson scraps.I have 3 of these. The lids cannot accommodate any more. This does not take into account the 14 of these tubs I have in the basement of all my other fabric scraps that were in my collection before we started designing for Moda. This does not take into account the 9 of these tubs that I have given away in the last 2 years to other quilters and to the local quilt guild. This does not take into account the 2-3 scrap quilts I make every year that only use these scrap tubs. This does not take into account the yardage (not scraps) that I have stacked on shelves. You are starting to see my dilemma, aren't you?
I don't want to give it all away. I want to ALWAYS have scraps around to make quilts - but there is a limit.
You all have tubs and tubs of scraps too, don't you? It won't stop you from entering this contest though, will it? (Heavy sigh). Good luck to all!
Here is a picture of a quilt I finished this week. I started it about (mumble mumble) years ago. It is for my sister-in-law Margie. It is her turn to get a quilt. She picked out these fabrics and I worked on it in fits and starts over the years. In between projects and deadlines. So, Margie, you can pick up your quilt now. It was fun doing all of the hand quilting.
Back to work.....
