The Plaid Scottie Presents: The 1st Official Giveaway!

*This giveaway is now closed*

As you can see, my model was sleeping on the job. But isn't he cute??? I hope nobody's allergic to him, because you'll probably explode into hives when you get this in the mail...oops! But I digress...the purpose of this post is to announce that...

I'M OFFICIALLY STARTING THE GIVEAWAY!!!

All my goodies are now in one place, and I hope you like them! Can I just say that I really, really enjoy giving things to people? I'm probably as excited to give these away as you are to win them! It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside :)

But on to the good stuff! The winner will receive BOTH items. Up for grabs is:

Item #1: 1/2 yard bundle of 7 different Modern Meadow prints (3 1/2 yards total!!! Are you excited yet???)


Prints included are: Flower Fields in Grass, Dogwood Bloom in Pink, Hand Picked Daisies in Pink, Herringbone in Berry, Picnic Plaid in Berry, Acorn Chain in Berry, Sunflower in Berry. To see bigger pictures of all the prints included, click here!


Item #2: Far Far Away 2 box pouch in my favorite print!!!




It's lined with some Orange Freckle fabric from Freespirit, and it's about 6" long, 3.5" wide, and 2.5" tall. I've made a couple of these zipper pouches for myself, and they're great for storing makeup or sewing accessories (I like to use mine for when I do hand sewing/on-the-go quilting like hexies or binding). And it's the perfect size for all your airplane-friendly 2 oz. bottles!

So here's the rub. In order to enter the giveaway (up to four times!), here's what you can do:
  1. Leave a comment telling me your favorite thing about quilting. (i.e. Mine is that moment when I hand someone a quilt I've made just for them. It's one of the most special feelings in the world! ...I told you I like giving people gifts!) What is it for you? Is it leaving "life" stress behind and getting lost in the precision of the task? Drafting ideas? Quilting the layers together? (sicko!) Buying fabric? Feeling it? Nuzzling it against your face? (oops...too much!)

  2. Become a Follower and leave me a comment. If you're already a Follower, leave a comment saying so.

  3. Blog about my giveaway and leave a comment.

  4. (This is another fun one!) Leave a comment with a link to your favorite project you've ever made. I want to see everyone's beautiful work and dream about my fabric going to a good home and being made into something lovely!
I will announce the winner a week from today! (Tuesday, Sept 7th)
This is open to Internationals, by the way!

GOOD LUCK & HAPPY TUESDAY! :)

  6. Thanks for the lovely giveaway! y favorite part about quilting is figuring out the "puzzle." How I want it to look and how I'm going to accomplish it.

  7. My favorite project so far has been this peacok quiltie: http://blog.petitdesignco.com/2009/08/bada-bum.html

  8. My fav thing about quilting is that it lets me take the things I always have loved about crafts and put them into a usable medium. I used to doodle through classes in school - that's like the quilting. I'd use different colors - that's like all those beautiful fabrics. I did scrapbooking - quilts tell a story. I love it all. And most of all I get to use the quilts over and over and over (rather than just storing my doodles away). Oooh. And the quilting doesn't come undone in the ways that I always have to re-do housework!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I think my favorite thing about quilting is the act of creating something that will be used and loved by someone - whether that's me or someone else. I also love buying fabric though :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. My fav project I've ever made... probably my quilt for DQS9... here's a link to the photo set on flickr. http://www.flickr.com/photos/34705349@N06/sets/72157624166030027/
    I love working with grey and bright colors. I loved making it for someone else, yet it was really hard to part with. This quilt challenged me to learn and grow!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I follow your blog in my google reader!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Once again you win the prize for most hysterical blogger ever. I'm so tempted to say my favorite part of quilting is quilting the layers together just to be ornery! But honestly I think my favorite part is when I start to see the light at the end of the tunnel with a project. It's not done yet, but I can see how it's going to look! And hopefully I'm happy about that. It can also be my least favorite time too!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I think my favorite project is a baby quilt I made for a dear friend's new baby. It was fun to make and I love the colors. You can see it here: http://flic.kr/p/8kg6vb

    ReplyDelete
  16. Well it's at the top of my head right now...so I think my current favorite project is my Doll Quilt for swap #9. But that may just be because I'm done with it! LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  17. My favourite things about quilting are when I'm layout out my quilt top pieces (does this piece look good here? oh, let's switch these two!) & having it all pieced together (so satisfying!). My problem is I get all smug & then conveniently forget to quilt it for a few months. oops! :)
    psst.. I'm also a big fabric nuzzler. my bf thinks I'm nuts!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I've told the world that reads my blog about your giveaway! I better win that fabric!!! You know my obsession with this line. And you are the only one who has given me any!

  19. My absolute favorite thing about quilting is pulling the finished quilt out of the dryer after its first wash - I love how the batting shrinks up and makes everything come together so nicely.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I just started following you (via Google Reader) as well. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. My favorite thing about quilting all of it! Really, I love the whole process for different reasons. Piecing allows me to turn off my brain, quilting allows me to doodle, and binding makes me feel productive in front of the TV. :) I hate the cutting part though. ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm a follower! Well, at least of your blog. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. My favorite thing about quilting is finishing the binding. Ooh, and then taking it out of the dryer for the first time. Also! Fabric petting. 3 things!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have subscribed to you on Google Reader.

    ReplyDelete
  27. There's no way I can quantify any one thing being my favorite! I love the whole process, except for cutting - don't like that at all cuz that's where I make the most mistakes!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have lots of favorite things I've made, but right now this is my favorite: http://www.flickr.com/photos/thestitchinghour/3807985392/in/set-72157614422005198/

    Because it's all mine and no one else in the house uses it, so it's special just for me :) And it pretties up the living room.

    ReplyDelete

  34. Well I think it is when I finish piecing the top...I know I have more to do but it is something about having all those pieces together as planned!

  37. What a fun giveaway! Thanks for your generosity. I've been collecting Modern Meadow because I LOVE it, and I'd just love to have some more!

    My favorite part of the quilting process is taking the finished quilt out of the dryer! I love when it's done and you can enjoy the fruit of all your hard labor - take pictures of it, snuggle under it, or give it to someone special.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I am very new to quilting and I've only made mini doll quilts. Of course there will come more, in adult size :) The most fun part {and most difficult} was to let them go.
    I also love the creating and learning process, don't forget playing fun, i.e. with HSTs! Plus I llllove the binding part!
    Thank you for the great giveaway and a chance to win!
    Take care,
    Sardana

  42. The visuals of the colorful fabric, seeing the quilt design come together, etc. as well as the rhythm of sewing all make quilting relaxing and therapeutic for me.

  44. I love to stack all the fabric for a project and admire it for a while. It's just so pretty! Yeah, I know, I have a sickness. At least my Flickr/blog peeps share the same illness! :) Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  45. My favorite thing is when I start planning a project--I sketch it out, pick out fabrics, change out fabrics, think about it--it's like planning art and making a puzzle all at once!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love choosing the right fabric to go with the right pattern and laying everything out to admire before I start cutting! So fun.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I am a follower! BTW, your four-legged is a cutie--my border collie keeps me company while quilting and does his job of putting at least a hair or two into every project! :)

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/monaw/4850704030/
    It started not as a bag (that´s something I like too) it started just as a sewing together leftovers ... and then the idea came and developed ... I use it almost every day:)

    ReplyDelete
  65. Thanks for an awesome giveaway! Great fabric and I LOVE the box pouch (my fave FFA2 print, too!). My favorite part about quilting is when I'm sewing and see progress, seeing my ideas, effort, and fabric all coming together (usually near completion). My second favorite part is giving it to someone who really appreciates it (I still like giving it, but it's extra fun when they LOVE it!).

    ReplyDelete

I love planning a quilt and dreaming about it before I go to sleep at night; I love when I can see it coming together, with the blocks pinned up on my wall; I love the hand quilting which is so soothing and meditative; and I love to give the quilt away to someone I love and see their happy face!

    ReplyDelete
  102. @Eily - whatever! you're a follower of my cult now! BWAhaha! *rubs fingertips together*

    ReplyDelete
  106. My favorite finish to date is a blue and green coins quilt I made for a friend's daughter's wedding back in January of this year. You can see it over here: http://librarianquilter.blogspot.com/2010/01/starts-and-finishes.html

  113. I work on scrap quilts, so I love hunting around for bits and pieces to incorporate. I have less than a yard of any one fabric at any given time, so it really forces me to think outside the box in terms of coordinating colors/patterns/etc. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete

  116. I love starting a new project! Picking the fabric, petting the fabric, choosing a design, cutting the fabric.... I like this a lot! In fact, this would explain why I have so much fabric and so many planned or half-started projects..... I need to work on loving the finishing of a quilt! :)

  123. I like making things for other people too, so I think my favourite thing is picturing something they would like and the joy they will get from when it is done.

  133. Favorite thing ??? You mean just one ??? I actually like the whole process from the purchase (which I try to do regularly:)) to sewing that very last stitch in the binding and taking a deep breath before turning over!!! LOVE it all !!!!!

  134. My favourite thing about quilting is it turns stash fabric into something beautiful and practical that I can enjoy every time I use or see it. Whenever I see fabric I love so much I feel the need to buy it I want to look at it all the while - see how it mixes with other favourite fabrics - what better way is in a nice bit of quilting? I get the same pleasure from using some of that fabric in projects for other people too.

  135. I have lots of favourite projects. I loved making the bag in this picture. It was inspired after I made one for my niece and we used them on our holiday together. They are fully reversible.http://www.flickr.com/photos/isisjem/4891076630/in/set-72157624594442414/

    I'm also really proud of this project which is still underway. COmpletely hand sewn! http://www.flickr.com/photos/isisjem/4860718604/in/set-72157624208099010/

  138. Oh goody, I've found a new blog! I think my favorite part of quilting is handsewing the binding. It means that I'm almost done plus I get plenty of time to fondle the quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  139. I love piecing! Unfortunately, that's where most of my quilts stop -- I'm not a big fan of the actual quilting, so I have a pile of tops that need finishing!

    ReplyDelete
  140. I think it's the collecting of fabrics, and sometimes, the sewing of prints together that someone else might not do. I enjoy all the finishes, too!

    ReplyDelete
  141. I'm not sure I can choose just one. I love designing the quilt, the anticipation of the sweet beginning, the choosing of the fabrics and the piecing as it all comes together, ahhhh. So sweet! I love handing it to my LAQ and getting it back all changed up, and like you I love to see the look on the face of the person who receives it.

  142. I love piecing, and I think my favourite thing is to start piecing a new quilt, with all the pieces already cut ... I also love hand-sewing the binding down and finishing up a quilt! Thank you for the giveaway!

  143. I`ve added your blog to my Google Reader - thank you for the great blog!

  144. My favourite thing about quilting is having my children watch me while I am working on a project and thinking that I am so clever for being able to create something. It is really special to feel like a superhero in the eyes of your 5 year old just because you can sew something.

  146. This was a quilt that I made for my daughter India for her first christmas, it was not that hard or intricate but it was so special for me because I was making it for my new baby, and the colours are just so bright and cheery.

  153. One of my favourite things about quilting is that sitting in my sewing room and being creative really helps me to clear my head and relax. My space is my own and I call it my "clubhouse" :)

  155. My favorite aspect of quilting can be summed up in 5 words:
    Fabric does not talk back.

    .silence. glorious. silence.

  161. I found your Blog through Pat Sloan's Blog.
    My favorite quilt is just a small lap quilt that I made for me. I used the Lakehouse hydrangea fabrics in the periwinkle/green colorway. I absolutely love the Lakehouse fabrics, and I am very happy with the way my quilt turned out.

  165. My favorite thing about fabric is just having it and lots of it. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  166. I can never "see" what the tiny little pieces of fabric will become. So my favorite part of quilting is to see the magnificent creation that these little pieces create! Oh and the way quilts feel once completed. And....

  171. I also just became a follower. I love give aways and do a lot of that myself. The best thing to me about quilting is all of it. I love learning new things and constantly try to do that. I don't know how to add a link, but I'm willing to learn. LOL

  172. Quilting serves as a creative outlet for me. Creative energy must go somewhere or I would go crazy. As a result, I draw quilts, I make quilts, I think about fabric combinations, I wander fabric stores, I study my fabric stash, I browse quilt blogs..........

    My favorite thing about quilting is that it keeps me sane!

    ReplyDelete
  173. I love seeing the blocks come together, the colors blending or standing out, the secondary patterns, the quilting on top and the warmth of my creation. But, you are right! The best is seeing the receipiant when the quilt is presented, her/his amazement that she/he was thought of and honored with the quilt. We quilters are so very lucky!
