  18. I would love to have access to the wonderful ideas in the Stashbusters book. The Putty and Mortar fabric line looks very appealing too.

  38. The quilt on the cover of the book is beautiful! I love working with scraps, thank you for the chance to win!

  39. I LOVE the Pathway to the Stars quilt. While I love scrappy quilts, I find actually using all my scraps intimidating.

  40. I’m always looking for new ways to use my stash and new quilting patterns. Would love to win a copy of Stashbusters!

  41. Scrap quilts are some of favorites. Tips on using up the stash are always welcome.

  42. I think it’s so funny to ask and answer the question on how to replenish our stash. If you love fabric that’s usually not a problem LOL. Thanks for the fun

  43. I LOVE Maxwell and Smith’s patterns! They’re always just so comfortable. The trouble is deciding which one to make first. Can’t wait to see the book.

  44. I love scrappy quilts and save even the smallest scraps. You never know when you might need them in an applique project. Right now I’m making table toppers using half square triangles made from the little triangles that are cut off when making flying geese. Want not waste not lol!!

  45. I’m a huge fan of Marcus Fabrics so it would be great to have a book by some of their designers to help use those fabrics! Thanks for the giveaway.

  48. What an awesome giveaway! I love the FQ fabrics & Stashbusters would be a great book to own. Thanks for the opportunity.

  49. Great book, I would love to make these quilts with my scraps, especially my reproduction fabrics.

  50. I have an out of control stash because I love fabric. I wish I could take more time to make my stash into quilts.

  51. My stash is getting lonely through neglect. It has been a winter of health problems, so I haven’t spent much time in my studio. Ideas are always welcome, and the beginning of something new.

  52. I absolutely *love* the “Putty and Mortar” fabric collection. I’ve seen other fabric collections deal with neutrals, alas, and fail to differentiate the colors, values, and/or scale(s) of prints. “Putty and Mortar,” at least to my eye, is terrific on all counts!

    I’d have more to say about “Revved Up Retro,” but I already have SO MUCH FABRIC in these colors and print scales that it’s embarrassing, esp. for someone who likes (at least to *wear*!) neutrals plus emerald green or cobalt blue. Yep, those yellows, fuchsias, bright blues and greens, and zing-y (is that a word?) reds and oranges all have a home in my stash already.

    But, hey: I could always find a home for more fabric–and a book on how to use it up! 🙂

  53. Love the scrappy quilts especially the quilt on the cover. Hope I can win the book or the lovely fabric. Helen

  54. Love the scrappy quilts especially the one on the cover. I would love to win either the book or the fabric.

  60. I love organized scrappy quilts, but would love some fresh ideas. Maybe I’ll win this and be able to use up some of my stash as well as the give-away fabric. I’ll be waiting at my mailbox! LOL

  61. Those are beautiful quilts. I love the colors. I like a scrappy quilt with one other constant fabric to bring it together.

  62. I’ve got over 40 years of quilting scraps, and luckily, scrap quilts are my absolute favorite type of quilt. I’m always looking for new ideas to use more scraps – not only is it thrifty (that’s me!), colorful and fun for me, but it pays homage to our quilting sisters of generations past who quilted not only out of love but necessity. I would love to win the book and fabrics, it would be lovely to make our two adult children quilts for their beds. Thank you for the giveaway!

  63. Wonderful scrap quilting!! Great giveaway. My stash and I are hoping!!
    Thanks for such a chance.

    it ends up with a scrappy appearance that I find most appealing. I have
    used Marcus fabrics many times and as I now see the new Revved Up
    collection I know that it will be a “must have”.

  96. I’m digging Revved up Retro, as I love brights and those hippie type prints.

  185. HELP! I need to “Tame my Stash” and what better way than with an exciting new book filled with scrap quilt patterns. I can’t wait to get the book.

  186. I have lots of scraps, too. They are too pretty to toss, so I’m open to ideas on how to best use them. This book sounds lovely.

  187. Oh! A book to help me manage the ever growing piles of scraps! I hope I won one! I sure need it!

  188. I enjoyed the post. Made me realize that I follow some of the same tendencies. My main color I find myself using is black, all shades, gray to black. And my second is scraps which are mostly brights. It is good to hear other ideas. Thanks!

  189. I NEED this book! i have so many scraps ! i need new ways to use them up. Thanks.

  196. I think I have become a “stashaholic”. I always seem to find a reason to buy new fabric instead of using what I have. Could Stashbusters be the book that makes the difference. I’m hoping so and thanks for this opportunity (I plan on buying the book anyway.)
