Two Words: Free Scraps

November is the busiest month of the year for me. It always includes a visit from my family over Thanksgiving, a visit from my husband’s parents before they head south for the winter, and my older son’s birthday. Then there’s the submission deadline for QuiltCon on November 30. I want to submit at least one quilt this year—right now I have zero finished!

All of this has me maxed out, but that hasn’t stopped me from taking on a big reorganization project here at From Bolt to Beauty world headquarters. I’ve overhauled my sewing storage and decided that I need a clean slate on the scrap front. Would you like to help me with that endeavor? I’ve collected several lots of scraps. Ninety-nine percent of them are at least 2.5-inch squares or bigger. Most are prints. Some are solids. If you live in the United States, you’re welcome to claim whichever lot(s) you’d like. I just ask that you pay for shipping. (I’ll be sending by USPS, probably by flat rate envelope or box because it will make things easier for me. I’d expect to pay $7 for a flat-rate package filled to the brim with scraps.)

To claim your lot(s), add a comment below. Important: If you’re a no-response blogger, you’ll need to provide an email address in that comment. I’ll follow up via email to figure out PayPal payment and your shipping address.

  1. Oh...I wish I was US based. Or at one of my previous houses in Canada which was SO close to Point Roberts (and could get US mail). Good luck finishing your goals/events this month.

  2. I would like to take the Downton Abbey group if that is still available. thank you. just in case. take care and Happy Sewing from Iowa

  3. How amazing! Denyse Schmidt, please?? I’d appreciate it so much!

  4. What a way to clean the slate for some fresh inspiration. The offerings all look fun. But none for me at this time.

  5. Well done with your organization. I am in desperate need of cleaning and organization. Maybe over the Christmas break.

  6. What a great idea! I hope someday to have enough scraps that I would need to do this. In the meantime, I have an upcoming project requiring lots of neutrals and I have very little, so I'd sure appreciate yours! mango5358 (at) hotmail(dot)com

  10. I’d love to have the Christmas scraps and one of the Blues if still available. Thanks!!

  11. I'd love to claim Lot #6 if you still have it available.

    1. Jenny, lot 6 is still available, but you're a no-reply blogger, so I don't have your email address. Please email me at frombolttobeauty (at) gmail (dot) com with it. If I don't hear from you by the end of the day today (Monday, November 6th), I'll pass it on to the next in line. Thanks!

    2. I didn't see this until this morning (11/9). So if you passed it along, that is fine.

  12. I would like the blue part 2 if still available.

    Thanks!! Susan Wallace

  13. Oh, I would love lot 13 with the home dec and denim scraps!

    Thank you!
