Scrap Challengers!

Happy Monday!  It feels like the start of a good week.  Baby slept through the night for the first time last Thursday night (yes, I'm still talking about it), and life is finally getting back to normal after the War on Mold.  Anyhoo, it's time to announce our 3 lucky, Canadian scrap challengers.

From top left:  Skipping Stones Eucalyptus in Silver (sold out), Sun Print End Paper in Goldenrod, Ticking Away in Charcoal, Raindrop Rain Walk in Bubblegum, Seventy Six Rising in Graphite, Andover Chambray in Eggplant, Add It Up in Sea Glass (sold out) and Kujira & Star Sea Urchin in Deep (sold out)

Thanks for sharing your ideas for our Mad About Patchwork Dreaming at Dusk bundle.  Soooo many good ideas, from clothing to runners.  Do remember that there's a fair bit of luck to which ideas get chosen.  As in, do I feel like pillows today?  Without further ado, our challengers are...

Adrienne of Chezzetcook Modern Quilts, who says "I am in the East Coast (NS) and am dreaming of a pattern. A pattern that brings traditional NS quilting and modern themes together. Modern Heritage?"

Judging by this mini quilt recently created for a swap, I can see that Adrienne has a knack for making modern.  Would love to see traditional Nova Scotia quilting merged with your modern aesthetic!

Laura, who declared, "I am game. I have a quilty idea for these fabrics. Some type of wall hanging with an amazing message!"  Laura is mom to a boy with special needs, who I will guess requires quite a large share of her time and energy.  I'm glad you're pursuing your creative side too, Laura.  Enjoy!  We are sure you do have an amazing message.

Christine aka SewCoole on Instagram.  Here latest capture proves she's a true Tula fan:

Christine commented, "Well these are stunning! I've always wanted to try my hand at making a sew-together bag... I think these fabrics would make one that is absolutely dreamy!"  That's a popular little bag, I've noticed.  Let's see yours happen!


Now, if you're thinking, "she totally should have picked me", you're probably right!  I'll try to pick you next time.  A great big thanks to Mad About Patchwork for this fun challenge.  We'll totally do it again sometime!  (And, if the Dreaming at Dusk bundle had your name written all over it, snatch one up before they're gone!)

Have fun, challengers!  We can't wait to see what you cook up!!!


  1. Congratulations on your War on Mold! I too have noticed mold (always at this time of year) in our house, and I'm thinking about getting a dehumidifier but don't know where to start. Do you have one that you would recommend? Thank you!

    1. I recommend you buy a dehumidifier from your local hardware store. We got the biggest model they sell at Lowe's, which was about $240. The brand is Fridgidare. We haven't had them for long (we bought 2, one for each end of the house), but so far so good. You may want to buy an humidity tester from the hardware store first. For about $20 you can use that to check that your humidity is the problem to begin with. Good luck!

    2. Thank you! By the way, I LOVE your quilts and enjoy your blog so much for information and inspiration! Quilt on!

  2. Congratulations to the winner! It's always fun to hear new ideas and see original projects. That's why we all love visiting with Rachel so often!! Thank you everyone for sharing.
