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?
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
