Pay Back Giveaway

In going through boxes to find what I could empty to put away my Kansas Troubles "scraps" I came across a large zip-lock full of scraps from making this and a couple other 30's repros swaps. I think this was the first one and one of the first online swaps I was in. Clear back in 2002. Just one of the many tops that needs to be quilted. This one I would like to hand quilt but-- will I have time?

As you can see the border is made of piano keys. There are a lot of scraps in this bag. Now it's yours if your want to leave me a comment and be sure your name is on it if it is anonymous so I know who you are. I will pick a name on Sunday and post the winner and it shall be off to you. Might be some surprises in the bag also. I'm sure there must be some out there that like the 30's fabrics.

Hubby is doing pretty good so far. Just hope he continues. Right now we are getting a very much needed rain. Thanks for stopping.

Ooo! I love 30s and you have such good taste in fabrics. I have a 30's quilt for K started. At least she understands my quilting (lack of) schedule and doesn't mind the wait.

Glad U Geo is doing well at home.

I'm Joyce. :D

Glad to hear hubby is doing well. Talk soon!

I sure would love to have those 30's scraps. I have never worked with them, but have always admired quilts made with repro fabric.

Hi Eileen,

I use 30's fabrics quite a bit. It just seems right somehow.....it's what I remember from my childhood.

The top is very pretty!

My little girl loves 30's fabrics, but sadly most things in my stash are civil war repros. I know she'd love to have me work up a doll size quilt for one of her babies.

Please enter me in your giveaway.

thank you,
christine

Rose Marie said...

Slowly, I'm starting to collect 30's fabrics and your stash would be a welcome addition. Lovely quilt and it is always a hard decision when it comes to quilting ... hand or machine .... and hand usually wins with me.

Kat said...

I am so pleased that your husband is doing well. I look everyday to see if you have posted anything new about your life. It always makes my day to see a post from you.

I also would like to thank you for you generosity in this giveaway. How wonderful to be the giver and receiver!!!!

Warm regards,

Kathy

I hope you do get a chance to quilt your lovely quilt.

dianne said...

i don't have any 30's fabrics ... i used to think that they were ugly (i blame my mother for that) but i have seen a little applique baby quilt that i would love to try ... and it sounds like all the other commenters have great plans for your scraps, too ... you know that whoever receives them will give them a good home

I love this quilt, it's awesome. I just love 30's fabrics. The piano key border is a nice touch. I would like to be entered in your drawing.

Jay in Nebraska said...

Oh Eileen, that quilt is beautiful. I don't comment much, because I am so busy. But I would love those 30's prints, think they would play nicely with what 30's prints I have. And since I piece everything on a 1920 Treadle Machine, they would fit right into my little cottage here in Nebraska...be sure to check out my blog for pictures of my newest treadle!

I would love to win your 30's. I have been collecting for a bit but don't really have enough variety for what I want to do.
Happy Sewing

Shasta said...

Great giveaway! My SIL wants a 30s scrap quilt, but I haven't gathered a lot of fabric for it.

Julie said...

Beautiful quilt, Eileen. You'll have to quilt it. I have used up all my 30's prints, so a scrap bag would be most welcome! Think how convienent it will to bring them to me in Ohio :) See you soon. Julie

Gran said...
