Scrap Attack {Pezz and Prizes}

We're entering the homestretch now with the Festival of Scrappiness just two weeks away.  How are the scrappy quilts coming?  From the looks of the Scrap Attack Quilt Along flickr pool, our festival is going to be standing room only.  I'm so excited!

Now, if I were able to enter the festival, I would totally add the happy scrappy quilt that I'll be showing you tomorrow.  For today, I thought I'd share some more yummy prizes to be distributed at random to festival participants and sneak in some Pezz-in-progress while I'm at it.  Sound good?


Prizes

There are too many Festival of Scrappiness prizes to cram into one post, so I've been announcing a few at at time.  If you missed it, catch the other prizes here and here.  Prizes ship worldwide, unless otherwise noted.


From The Warm Company, one 90" x 40 YARD roll of Warm & White batting ($240 value).  Yes, this is the 2nd HUGE roll of batting up for grabs from The Warm Company!  U.S. residents only for this large shipment.


From Contemporary Cloth, this super-fun half yard bundle of Fly Away by Amy Schimler and Remix by Ann Kelle (9 pieces by Robert Kaufman).  Plus, choose your favorite yard of Kona cotton to coordinate!  Contemporary Cloth has a big selection of Konas conveniently set up to purchase by the 1/4 yard.





From Swell Cloth, a Jennifer Paganelli Crazy Love fat quarter bundle (5 pieces).  U.S. residents only.  Also just in at Swell Cloth is the very springy Hello Luscious by Basic Gray.






  From Aurifil, a set of 12 spools of their wool 12wt threads ($100 value).  Each spool has almost 400 yards of chunky wool thread, which looks really cool for machine quilting.



Pezzy prints LOVE



From Whipstitch, a Pezzy Prints complete fat quarter bundle (12 pieces).  These colorful prints are so completely YUM that I couldn't resist buying some of my own.  It's a basic that's dottie without being girly. I wager they're going to go fast, so maybe get some of your own Pezz while you can!




Pezzy tote in progress

For starters, I wanted to do something that incorporates all the different pezzy shades. This is a tote bag front that was inspired by a project in Patchwork Style.  First I stitched the grid and next I'll be appliqueing the little squares into place.  I have so many ideas for the bag back that I'm thinking I may have to make two Pezzy totes just to get them out of my system.  And then the pezzy prints will merge with my stash to be used as needed in projects to come.

How to Win

Whenever I post prizes, there are bound to be some new friends who wonder how they can qualify to win!  Here are the details.  The Festival of Scrappiness will be March 26-28 here at Stitched in Color.  The festival is a link party for anyone who has completed a scrappy quilt this year.  To qualify, your quilt must be a finished top of any size - minis are welcome.  It does not have to be quilted or bound, but the top must be finished and you must have a photo to share.  You can enter multiple scrappy quilts, so long as each was finished in 2012.  No blog necessary.  Prizes will be awarded randomly on the 28th from among all entrants. 

Except, we may just have one extra special non-random prize...  You'll have to keep your ear to the ground for more about that next week!

  2. There are so many fabulous prizes! I must admit, though; I'm still mostly in awe of the roll of batting. That is phenomenal! I added my latest little mini to the flickr pool. I hope to have another scrappy finish before the end of the month, too!

  3. I wish I had the time! I want to make a stamp quilt eventually to stick in my truck, but I won't be able to sew anytime soon :(

  4. How do I link my picture if I don't have a blog? Can I e-mail it to you and you link it? I have never entered one of these before but I am almost finished with my scrap quilt and wanted to enter the party.

    1. Yes, I hope you will enter! There will be a form that allows you to "add your image". You will be able to upload your picture of your quilt directly to the photo pool at Stitched in Color. the form will require an email address (which will allow me to contact you if you win!), but will not require a link to any blog or other website!

  7. Okay---this just renewed my drive to get my quilt top finished! I have been doing it as a leader/ender--but I think it needs to just be a leader for the rest of the month! LOL

    Who needs sleep, a clean house, food? I have to sew!!! :)

    1. I totally agree! Those things are all overrated when there is a project like this on hand!

  8. Today would have been the perfect day to get new pictures of my quilt top, but it was so nice in fact that I completely forgot about sewing for most the day!

    I took a few quick photos yesterday that I'll share and add to the pool tomorrow! The deadline is sure coming quickly, wowsa!

  13. I wish I had enough scraps to participate!

    I only started quilting a month ago, and I've only finished a little nine-patch baby quilt. So I don't have a stash of scraps, just a little handful of green.

  17. I just finished my first quilt, a lap quilt, last week. When I saw this post I decided to take some leftover bits from that and a some other scraps I had to make a little quilt for my cats to sleep on (since they wouldn't stop standing on the other one while I was trying to embellish it with perle thread!) Thank you for the great giveaway, and for an excuse to start and finish a project promptly instead of procrastinating!
    I can tell I have a long way to go when it comes to accuracy, but this was a really fun chance to see what I could make.

  18. This is so exciting! I was actually able to participate! So many wonderful inspiring quilts on the Flickr page. I finally used up some vintage linen scraps (part from my own collection, part swapped with other bloggers) to make a sweet baby play mat for my new niece. It has been a long time since I made any sort of quilt and now I don't think I can stop! I already started a second one. :)
