"Another Person's Trash" giveaway: Crumbs

yup---perfect name!!!!

Most of my blog followers know (and idolize??) the name Bonnie K. Hunter. The woman is amazing and her Scrap User's System, Leaders-n-Enders, and all the other tips, patterns and suggestions on her Quiltville website have taken my quilting to a COMPLETE new level (back in 2008!!!!)

So.......
Cookie crumbs
Bar crumbs
and even bread crumbs.....
love 'em all!

I had HOPED to fall in love with Fabric Crumbs too, but.....this is one relationship that just wasn't meant to be.


I have dutifully been tossing all my "crumbs" into this tattered ol' shoe box for one distant day in the future when the relationship would finally be consumated.

Ummmmm........
ain't happening!

I have all shapes and sizes in here. MUCH of the bottom half consists of pieces smaller than 1.5" square, but bigger than 1/2" pieces. {{{The smallest pieces that I keep are 1.5" squares, anything smaller----into the box it goes!}}}
BUT, for about the last half year, I've gotten lazy! I haven't been cutting down some of my larger scraps...
...so there is probably half of this box filled with larger scraps (NOT what I would consider crumbs}


"One person's trash is another person's treasure"....
....if this is your treasure, let me know!

The rules are simple----just leave me a comment!

I'll draw Sunday evening. Please be sure I have a way to contact you! ;0)

Be sure to check out my String Giveaway.

Yep, Amy, I too idolize Bonnie. I would love to win your crumbs. I have a small bin filled myself but I'm so bored with my crumbs. I'd love to add some new stash. My plan is to make crumb blocks and then sash with a solid color. These will become charity quilts for our local transition housing shelter. I just love reading your blog. You too are an inspiring quilter.

If life gives you crumbs, I guess you have to make crumb cake. Hope you are having a happy week.

I even love scraps of this size, possibly even more than I love strings. I have an ongoing scrap quilt that I've been working on for a couple of years that I use nothing but bits and pieces like this for. Anyway please sign me up for the giveaway.

I absolutely love all those tiny crumbs!!! For many years, too many to count, I have enjoyed making SOMETHING out of stuff others would throw away. I like to applique bits to a base fabric.[IMG]http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/ii104/GERRIETUTTY47/appliquedcrazyquilt-1.jpg[/IMG]
this is a sample of what I do.
Have a super day!!! Gerrie, gerrietutty@yahoo.com

Please pick me! I'd love to have your scraps as I really don't have any of my own. Thank you! :0)

If you would mail a little baggie to Canada, put my name in the draw! I'm making some quilt as you go blocks for the Heartstrings project and would use these little pieces in the corners.

How very exciting, I too am a crumb catcher/saver and follow Bonnie Hunter but I have to admit I was saving scraps long before I found her. I am passionate about those little tiny bits of fabric and would love to add your bits and pieces to mine, I have the passion so bad that when I'm at the fabric shop and I see a string that they have tossed, I have to reach in and save it from the land fill and give it a home. I use them to make crumb blocks and string blocks, Thank You So Much! Bj in Arizona, Andee's friend :)

I am trying to get better about using scraps. Most of my scraps are dark fabrics. I am trying to branch out with some brighter colors. Winona

I don't really need anymore scraps BUT, other people's are always more interesting.
I love your blog and really am amazed at how much you achieve.
