scrap giveaway

First off, THANK YOU for all your kind comments about my scrap vortex quilt! Since there were so many questions about the construction, I thought I would answer those here. I used the slab technique, as found in Sunday Morning Quilts. I made several irregular sized slabs and joined them together like a puzzle. It takes a lot of rearranging and tweaking as you go, but it's so worth it! Just keep making slabs and joining them together until the quilt is as large as you want. And to answer another question that came up several times, YES, I still have scraps left. Always, always, always!
Since scraps are the subject of the day (and every day...ha ha!), I have this pile of Denyse Schmidt Ansonia scraps to give away. The fabric isn't due to release until first quarter of 2014, according to the free spirit website. I have these leftover from making the scrap happy purse that I sewed up for market. (Pattern is available here.) I have a small priority mail box FULL of scraps, ready to mail. (International entries welcome, as long as you are willing to pay the shipping overages if sent outside the US.) Please leave a comment on this post to be entered in the draw. The question of the day? If you could take a workshop from anyone, who would it be? Vicky asked me that question at retreat a few weeks ago and I thought that was a great question! I think it would be amazing to learn from Gwen Marston. A few more things...one comment per person, please. I'll pick a winner sometime on Wednesday. Phew! I think that's all.

Happy Monday to you!

I really don't know as I am still pretty new to quilting and don't know who is who. I would have to say Leah Day, just because I need help with FMQ and she is the woman in the know apparently.

Random Thoughts Tracy said...

I'd love to take a workshop from the lovely and ever so talented Amanda Jean! She inspires all my quilting! :) (a little shameless plug here for a Raffle I've made a few things for... www.ourindiansparrow.blogspot.com ) it supports my dear friends adopting a special needs little girl from India!

Esther F. said...

Question: how do you find a balance between what YOU want to make and quilts that are meant for SALE and may therefore adhere to a different design easthethic? Or is that not the case and do you make whatever you love and think about selling later?

What a fun looking bunch of scraps! If I could take a workshop from anyone, I would choose Carrie Nelson. She does some amazing stuff and would be such a fun person to learn from.

Amy's Crafty Shenanigans said...

Gosh - tough question as there are so many amazing people out there! I would love to take a workshop with with Cluck Cluck's Allison. I've recently had the pleasure of taking a class with Lizzy House and two summers ago with Lu Summers who are both amazing!!! Oh and I would TOTALLY be happy to pay postage on scraps :) Yum!

Esther F. said...

Sorry, I misunderstood your "assignment" for the comment! Please delete the previous one!
Thanks!!!
I have no clue who I would like to teach me... I would love to meet quilters near me, though. Talking about quilting and showing each other our works would be a class for me!

I love this new line, and I really think that I'd take a class with Denyse. I think her fabrics are nothing short of genius.

I could use some quality time with Angela Walters.. Great collection of scraps. Are you sure you want to part with them? ;)

Cheryl said...

Denyse Schmidt. Also, Angela Walters, Cheryl Arkison, and YOU!

PMdesigns said...

I am taking a class from Gwen Marston in June 2014. I can't wait!

Laurel09 said...

Honestly - I loved the free motion quilting sampler quilt-as-you-go quilt you made a while ago and wished so much I could have taken your class to learn how to make it! And I guess also Angela Walters for free motion quilting help. (Do you notice a trend of what I need help with!?)

Courtneysews said...

I would love to take a class from Elizabeth Hartman. Thanks for the chance to win these great scraps!

giddy99 said...

I don't know; I've only taken one class below... I am always up for learning QAYG, though (I want to know ALL the methods).

JanineMarie said...

I've always wished I could take a workshop from Ruth B. McDowell. Alas, I think she's retired. So, you! Really. I mean it. And not just to win scraps. :)

Leigh Anne said...

I think I'm completely in shock over the fact that you are giving away scraps!!

I would choose Angela Walters. Her quilting blows me away.

Sally Ann Flecker said...

I've already had the good fortune to take a workshop with Amanda Jean, and I can tell you she is a great teacher. She's very supportive, has lots of technique to share, and inspires her students to reach. Plus, she's fun to be around. Someone I'd like the chance to study with is Dianne Hire. She is an improvisational quilter. She has a book called Quilter's Playtime that is lots of fun. Her quilts are pure joy.

Alison said...

Probably Leah Day. I need to work on machine quilting something terrible.

Larissa said...

I don't really know mavens in the sewing field, but I'd like to take more knitting classes from the Underground Crafter.

FrancisMoore said...

I'm open to a class taught by anyone in the quilting world. fmooore11589@comcast.net

Pat said...

Love those scraps!! i recently took a workshop with Jacquie Gering and I'd love to take another one from her!! If repeats aren't allowed, then probably Katie Pederson.

Sew Now said...

Wow, this was a really tough question as I am like a sponge and want to absorb everything I can about quilting. But I would LOVE to take a workshop by Jacquie Gering.....simply to spend some time with her and, of course, absorb!

Heidi [Banks of Frog Creek] said...

I'm horrible with names, so I couldn't name someone to take a workshop from, but I'd love to take a workshop on beginning free motion quilting!!

Linda B said...

I would love to take one of your classes on slabs. I don't live anywhere near you, but I love your book and your style!

Shelley said...

Gosh thats a tough question. I could learn so much from any seasoned quilter. Angela Walters of course and You ;) would be my top choices rt now.
Shellcantrell@gmail.com

the mrs said...

I think I would take a class from Rita at Red Pepper Quilts. Her quilts are meticulously pieced and quilted. I would love to just shadow her for a day!

MaryAnn Guappone said...

The scraps are gorgeous. I would love to take a class with Angela Walters.

juceyj03 said...

Yay! What a wonderful giveaway!!
Other peoples scraps are always more fun to play with then your own scraps :-)
I would love to take a class or two or three from Camille Roskelley! She is a breath of freash air! She seems sweet, fun, and full of life so what better person to learn from. Not to mention she is a wonderful quilter! She has a great eye for color and he patterns are always so super fun!! I'm a total fan!
Thanks for the chance, Jessica

SeeMaryQuilt said...

I'd love to take a class with either you, Amanda Jean, or with Anna Maria Horner. So much talent!

Thank you for the chance to win!

Lisa Nelson said...

Amanda -

I personally would love to take one of YOUR classes. I think the way you put things together is wonderful, and I just adore all of the scrappy goodness! <3

Nancy Criw, but I'd probably be intimidated!

knitterb said...

I would love to take a class from Kaffe Fasset! bmontema@hotmail.com

Julie L said...

I would love to take a class about mixing and matching fabrics for quilt tops. I would love it if you would teach it. I am a fairly new quilter and only can use collections with confidence.

Emily Sands said...

Angela Walters in a second! I love how approachable she seems on her blog.

Becky said...

Angela Walters! I want to know how she quilts so small and wonderful. Thanks for having a give-away.

Leah Spencer said...

Bonnie Hunter.

jann said...

Wonderful scraps..everyone's always looks so much better than my own...I'm fairly new to quilting so any class would be helpful, but I would love to take a class from Kathy Doughty or Freddie Moran.

jan_726@msn.com

ebwhite said...

Hard to decide but my top pick would be Rosalie Dace. I may have to travel but I think she would be well worth the trip.

ebwhite11026@sbcglobal.net

julie said...

Tula Pink.... Love her colors and designs!

Dedra C said...

V and Co. I love her style!

SarahZ said...

How fun!!! I think maybe Denyse Schmidt...love her simple, bold designs...but but a workshop with you, and several of my fave bloggers would also be a blast!

Maria Harrits said...

Pick me please! I would just love to play with these scraps.

Di~ said...

I agree, Gwen Marston! I heard her speak. She is hilarious. Thanks AmanadaJean!

Julianne said...

Yay! Scraps! I want them! I would love to spend a day with Victoria Wolfe Findlay in NYC!

tara said...

Certainly a workshop with you would be lovely. I have my eye on your color scrap bins. Our shop ran out of your book but I will make it someday. And i would love to take a tour if Tula pinks work space

Karen said...

I'd love to take a class or workshop with DENYSE Schmidt! I've got two quilts in progress that are ALL DS fabrics, as she is my fave!

Angela Coleman said...

I would like to take a class from you on how to choose fabric or how to organize my stash or spend some one on one time with Karen Mctavish on FMQ. I attempted a small wall hanging and it was a hot mess! I have been eyeing your scrap bags, I think I will attempt on of those with some of scraps if I win them.

Jennifer said...

Oh goodness. I'm so non-monogamous with my crafting. I think I'd be delighted to take a workshop with anyone on any craft, as long as he/she was well-prepared and lively, and then that would become my craft of choice for a while until I moved onto the next craft.

http://www.berkeleymommy.blogspot.com

susan said...

umm... that's a tough one there are so many "rock stars" out there but my wish would be either Denyse Schmidt or Anna Maria Horner

Kevin the Quilter said...

Besides you, it would have to be Victoria Findlay Wolfe, or Bonnie Hunter. The three of you are scrap queens, and I like to think of myself as the King of scraps! LOL

Natalie said...

I would love to take a class from Bonnie and Camille!

Debbie said...

I have a bucket load of scraps, but when I needed some this weekend, how could I not find the 'right scrap'?? Must need more. My workshop go-to....Terri Mangat.

Vicki said...

I would love a class with Gwen Marston or you I like the way you play with color

Cara said...

I'm too new to the quilting game to know names yet, but I'd be rather ecstatic to be a part of any sort of free-motion quilting workshop.

I just received my first open-toed foot for my machine last week, after falling in love with all your work and a couple other bloggers' work. I'm totally addicted, which means I'll now have to find space for a fabric stash, in addition to my already-existing yarn stash. Hee hee.

Svetlana said...

I'd love a workshop with Denyse Schmidt for sure. Thanks for the chance to win all these amazing scraps.

Robyn said...

I think I would like to take a class from Angela Walters on machine quilting. That would be fun... Maybe free me up a bit. ;)

Laura said...

So many people! Elizabeth Hartmanis just one of the many... Maybe one of these days get to a quilt convention/show/weekend.

Sara said...

I was asked this on a guild interview and I said Gwen Marston thinking I had missed the opportunity. Someone who read the interview showed me classes she is teaching in Madeleine Island and I signed up right away. I'm fortunate to have studied with so many great people and I am looking forward to a class with Gwen.
I love scraps!

Susan said...

Like you, I would love to take a workshop with Gwen Marston. I think that most of the techniques we use in quilting today--even in the Modern Quilting movement--were pioneered by Gwen. And I have heard she is a wonderful teacher!

Jade Prosser said...

Fun question! I believe I would like to learn more from Camille Roskelley. I would want to learn all about her fabric design process with her mom, how she manages to design so many quilts, so quickly, publish them etc., raise three kids, AND have a clean home. It's a mystery...

Irene said...

Love scraps and if I win this one I will pass on some of mine. Love to connect with Lisa Call or Elizabeth Barton.

Lynne said...

I would like to take a workshop from Julie Herman.
Thanks for sharing your scraps :)

Katie said...

I would love to take a workshop from Tula Pink (or Bonnie Hunter -- she lives right down the road from me but it never seems that when she's in the area that I'm available)

Jenny said...

Oh, puleeeeeeeaaase pick me. I was going to say Denyse (really), but you have a great idea there with Gwen. thank you for the giveaway. I would really freak out, can you pass that on to the random generator?

Houseful10 said...

Okay.i know, I have three.
Eleanor Burns, because she reminds me of ny mother and love the way she teaches. Jenny Doan, because she reminds me of well me, she is always looking for the easiest way to do something and last Mary Fons, because she reminds me the be young and energetic. Sharon

Rachel said...

I'd love to take a workshop from Angela Walters as I still haven't gotten up the courage to FMQ and I'd love to be able to do it :)

rowermom3 said...

I love scrappy quilts! Yours is beautiful. I would like to take a workshop from Sue Spargo, I've been collecting wools and live her embroidered finishes.

Tracy said...

There are so many wonderful crafters out there who i'd love to learn from, so to narrow it down is hard. I think it would have to be Jodie Carlton of Vintage RicRac, her blog is warm, welcoming, informative and funny, what more could you want ?

Carly said...

I would love to take a class with ANYONE! I have never had the pleasure as there are really none available in my area. I'd love to put those scraps to good use!

Svea Polster Broughton said...

Your scrap quilt is gorgeous, Amanda Jean! And to answer your question: I would like a workshop with Angela Walters, regarding some quilting, and FMQ in particular. So far I have been too scared to unmount my walking foot.....

Rachel said...

It would be Denyse Schmidt or Gwen Marston. I already took a workshop from Denyse Schmidt so Gwen Marston is on my list next.

Becky Butler said...

Ooh scraps lovely! I'd love to take a class from you, mostly on productivity, I wish I got half as many things made as you!

Nicole Hannah said...

Yay scraps! (I actually buy bags of scraps sometimes).

This is crazy coming from a modern quilter but Jinny Beyer would be my pick.

Tammie B said...

Elizabeth Hartman , she taught me to free motion quilt and I would love to learn more from her.

Marg M said...

I'd love a class with anyone as everyone has some ideas or new ways that I could learn.

Jennifer said...

I'd love to learn from Denyse Schmidt. She's got some awesome quilts out there so I'd love to learn her design process.

Josie McRazie said...

Oh, tough question! I would love to watch Judi Madsen quilt, I would love to sit in Bonnie Hunters mind when she decides to rip up yet another shirt! There are just so many!

JaideyBug said...

I would have to say Rita from Red Pepper Quilts. I think I would travel all the way to Australia to hear exactly how she is so accurate in all of her piecing and puts colors together so nicely! Good question :) Thanks for the chance to win some lovely scraps.

zizzybob said...

I am a scrap fabric junky.....I don't stand a chance of winning this one but my fingers are crossed

audrey said...

Ooh, that's tough. Anna Maria Horner, Angela Walters, Tula Pink...too many options!

Amy Shagenmaker said...

I'm not too sure since I'm pretty new to fancy quilting. My grandma taught me and it wasn't until recently I realized there were so many other intricate things you can do! I especially love scrappy stuff so this giveaway is right up my alley.

Amanda S. said...

Just one?? Rita from Red Pepper Quilts or Camille Roskelley...

AngieSue said...

Bonnie Hunter maybe -- or Angela Waters. Does Tula Pink teach classes?? That would be great too!

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Oh my goodness, thank you so much for this chance. This is going to be my 2014 project thanks to you for the inspiration. I sent you an email that must have gotten lost in spam to ask your permission to post links and pictures of your quilt on a blog post.
I wish I would have had gotten the chance to take a class from Mary Ellen Hopkins. But her work lives on through us.

Liz said...

Love Denyse Schmidt's new line! Thanks for the chance to win. I don'tknow many famous quilting instructors so I can't name names but I'd love to take a garment sewing class sometime soon.

joanold said...

I'd love to have a workshop with Angela Walters so she could overcome my reluctance to FMQ. The scraps would be a welcome addition to my meagre stash.

Deb@asimplelifequilts said...

This is a tough question... Scrappy Traditional from Bonnie Hunter, FMQ from Angela Walters (totally intimidating) or Scrappy Modern from you. Can't pick one today!

Julierose said...

So many wonderful quilters to choose from: But, as I am applique-challenged, I think Jan Patek would be my choice fora class...hugs, Julierose

Trisch said...

That is such a hard question as there are so many talented people in the quilting field and I have so many skills that need polishing up. I think maybe Leah Day for FMQ. Thanks for the chance to win. I love Denyse Schmidt!!!

Justine Malinski said...

I would love to meet and take a class from you (I am a Minnesotan in Wisconsin) and also Denyse Schmidt!

Sonia B said...

I know you're not looking for this, but I'd love to meet you. I found your blog a few years ago and it was what really got me excited about getting back into quilting. I love this quilt and have been thinking about it all day. Thanks for the chance.

Adele said...

Just one,huh? I think I'd say Rita Hodge because I really admire how she puts her fabrics together. I'm a DS addict so you know I would love any scraps coming my way!

Linh said...

I'm not sure who I would choose since I've never been to one but I'm sure anyone would be helpful you can always learn something from everybody whether it be sewing or life. I love Elizabeth Hartman's designs so maybe meeting her would be wonderful. Thanks linhs4real@aol.com

Jess said...

I would choose a Bonnie Hunter workshop. I love how all her quilts are scrappy and that is what I usually do. I focus on scrappy quilts for charity. The scraps are beautiful.

jessica.breidinger@yahoo.com

Amy said...

Hmm, tough question, but I'm willing to answer to win those DS scraps! I'd like to take a class from Carrie Nelson, Ms. Rosie's person. I love her quilts, and I bet her classes are filled with great tips and laughter.

JoanG said...

I'd love a class with Gwen Marston to move me outside my comfort zone, or with LeH Day or Angela Walters for help with fmq. Thanks for the chance to win this wonderful collection of scraps!

Lisa Merkley said...

I don't know who I'd take a class from because I don't know much about that area of quilting. BUT, I really do LOVE all the lines that Vanessa Christensen of V and Co has done for Moda and I would be in heaven to meet her! I hope I get picked for the scrap collection! It would make a great Christmas present for myself!

Cheryl said...

Thanks for the chance to win! My dream instructor would be Angela Walters.

Gigi Pereira said...

I've attended a workshop with Kaffe Fassett, which was a dream come true and one with the late great Patricia Campbell, which changed my needle turn applique forever. One other quilting hero is Ruth McDowell - I would loooove a workshop with her. And your scrap vortex quilt is quite simply monumental:)

Frog Quilter said...

Would love to take a class from Gwen Marston.

Diane said...

Definitely Bonnie Hunter!! :) thanks for the chance.

I would love to take a workshop by Bonnie Hunter. Would also like to learn how to do free motion quilting.

I would love to take a workshop from anyone that would teach me how to FMQ. I've yet to try FMQing on any quilts and have played it safe with a walking foot.

That is a tough question! I think Carol Ann Waugh, because I'd love to learn more about fiber art and creative textures in quilting.

Jackie said...

I'd love to take a class from Leah Day! Thank you for hosting such a generous giveaway.

MCA said...

Everyone I know who has taken a class with Denyse has highly recommended learning from her so she's the first to come to mind for me -- and how fitting for this giveaway.

Kate said...

Well, I would have to say Valori Wells....but the first thought that popped into my head was that I wish Libby Lehman would recover and be able to teach again! Positive thoughts to Libby everyone!!!

I love Angela Walters and Bonnie Hunter. I would jump at the chance to take a class from either one of them.

Misty Bowie said...

Oh, there are so many! I'm going to go with the first one that popped into my mind--Heather Ross!

roccagal said...

would luv to get your scraps!
My dream would be a workshop with GWEN MARSTON at Beaver Island!

Shauna said...

Heather Ross on printmaking. I'd love to win the scraps and make something wonderful!

Teri said...

I would love to learn from Angela Walters.

Patti said...

Haha! Great question! The obvious answer is to take a workshop from you. But in case you are busy teaching elsewhere I would love to take a longarm workshop from Angela Walters or a quilting workshop from Kathy Doughty of Material Obsession. Thanks so much for such an informative post. Love your scrap vortex quilt!

Heather Ross!

Mary Graff said...

There's only one person I would want to take a class from if I had a bag full of scraps...the scraptastic Amanda Jean!

Cathy Smith said...

I've been wanting to take a class from Judy Niemeyer. I adore her quilts!

Amanda Guthrie said...

I'd absolutely love to take an in person class from Angela Walters or Camille Roskelley. I've learned so much from their Craftsy classes and would love to actually meet them!
