SMS Giveaway Day

>> Wednesday, December 2, 2009

Happy Giveaway Day! And welcome to everyone, but especially to any new visitors -- I know you're probably scurrying through all the links and opportunities to win, but I hope you'll return and look around on a day with fewer giveaways to enter.

I've done a fair amount of quilting this fall and have a fair number of scraps to show for my efforts. 

My offering is this bag full of scraps, to which I'll add a few larger remnants from my fabric collection.

A few of you may recognize some of these fabrics as some of the scraps come from making the Miracle Foundation quilts for which some of you so generously contributed fabric. If you win the giveaway, I'll make a special bag for you from the rest of my fabric stash.

This bag o' scraps includes a variety of fabrics -- in color, design, and manufacturer. You'll find some Amy Butler, Alexander Henry, Michael Miller, and Heather Ross alongside some Timeless Treasures, Benartex, Joanns, and who-knows-what-provenance scavenged at thrift stores and garage sales. There's a range and I've made stuff from all of it, but some meets the "quilt shop quality" standard and some doesn't.

The Fine Print: 
Since I know there are plenty of giveaways to keep you busy for the next few days, I'll keep this one simple: leave a comment telling me your favorite animal.

This giveaway is open until Dec 6, at which point I will select a winner randomly.

Make sure your post provides a way for me to contact you.

One entry per person.

Open to those with US and Canadian addresses.

Coming Soon!
The Festival of Lights, aka Chanukah, starts next Friday, December 11. Check back here for some giveaways over the 8 nights of the holiday.


Erin December 2, 2009 at 6:57 AM  

Good morning! Interesting giveaway question. :) My absolute favorite animal is the ring-tailed lemur - they're so energetic, intelligent and playful... just crazy when they're playing. Thanks for the giveaway!

Allison December 2, 2009 at 7:56 AM  

I love birds--pretty much all of them. I have two parrots who never fail to amuse us with their antics. Thanks for the opportunity!

Tricia December 2, 2009 at 8:24 AM  

My fav animal was always a tiger...I even had tiger bedding and a tiger border on my bedroom wall as a kid. Thanks for the giveaway!

Dresden Quilter December 2, 2009 at 8:50 AM  

The white tailed deer. I did a project on it in Grade 3. I love its beauty and grace. Thanks for the giveaway.

Quiltbug December 2, 2009 at 8:54 AM  

Without a doubt my favourite animal is a cat. I lost mine through an illness several years ago and miss him still.

I would love the scraps. I'm doing a charity quilt day in mid January and this would work right into my scrappy theme.

Mama bee December 2, 2009 at 8:56 AM  

My favorite animal is a Carder Bee - they're solitary, and gather plant hairs to line their nests. Plus they're darn cute! Thanks for the giveaway!

Susan December 2, 2009 at 9:13 AM  

I love porcupines! They are quiet and just waddle along and mind their own business. Thanks for the chance to win!

Bea December 2, 2009 at 9:14 AM  

Hi! Thanks for this great giveaway. I love scraps. I love pigs too! Can't wait to look around your blog some more.

Morgan December 2, 2009 at 9:44 AM  

Hm favorite animal. I have a thing for squirrels after moving to this house surrounded by really big trees. They're pretty fun to watch.

JacquieLH December 2, 2009 at 9:45 AM  

My favorite animals used to be panda bears but ever since I've had my daughter and she loves monkeys, it seems that monkeys are everywhere around our house!!!!

I just started sewing and have tons of projects on my mind so would love your bag of scraps! :) Thanks for the giveaway.

Vicki December 2, 2009 at 9:48 AM  

favorite animal--not sure, I had a thing for pigs back in 6th grade though.

Jocelyn December 2, 2009 at 10:16 AM  

Well my favorite animal would have to be an Airedale. I guess that is a more definite answer, but we had two of them, and we loved them. Thanks for participating in the Giveaway Day!

Deranged Squirrel December 2, 2009 at 10:21 AM  

My favourite animal is the cat. I'm immensely jealous that I go to work while the cat stays home and sleeps on the couch.

Sarah December 2, 2009 at 10:22 AM  

Easy peasy question -- beagles. Cute as sin and attitude to share. And the greatest snugglers ever.

Julie December 2, 2009 at 10:26 AM  

penguins of course! don't you just want to hug one?

Gin December 2, 2009 at 10:33 AM  

That is one fantastic giveaway, pick me, pick me! My favourite animal is sitting at my feet, an adopted dog who's missing one eye and has the looks of an over-loved childhood teddy! But other than that, I'm quite fond of ducks!

Thanks, it is very generous!

free indeed December 2, 2009 at 10:36 AM  

I am overly attached to giraffs for some reason...always have been. Zebras are special because of my mom reading an ABC book to me when I was young, and I love cheerful chickadees! I'm also a scrap aholic!

Kerri December 2, 2009 at 10:40 AM  

This is a hard question. I love all kinds of animals :) My favorite is the moose. They are awesomly strong and yet so cute.

finger thumb December 2, 2009 at 10:42 AM  

mmm, lovely bag of scraps. Can't get enough remnants. So, I'd have to say my favourite animal, these days at least, is the Hedgehog. So cute.

Betsy December 2, 2009 at 10:44 AM  

hmmm... my favorite animal. I'm going to have to go with a squirrel. I know its lame but I'm at school right now and i swear the squirrels here are insane. I spoon fed one peanut butter the other day. Don't know if thats in a squirrels diet....

Anonymous December 2, 2009 at 10:48 AM  

What a nice giveaway -- such beautiful fabrics!

My all-time favorite animal is my cat, Bink, who passed away five years ago. "Totemic" animals for me are cats, whales, crows, and butterflies.


Liz December 2, 2009 at 10:50 AM  

My little brown mutt dog. She is the sweetest.

Katrina @ Pics, Pages & Purls December 2, 2009 at 10:51 AM  

A very nice giveaway...I think I like either the dolphins or killer whales (I really like watching them in shows and such)Thanks for doing this giveaway...I will be checking back about your next giveaways.

Sarah Vanderburgh December 2, 2009 at 10:51 AM  

My favourite animal for a long time has been the koala bear. Love the chance to win your scraps. Like the name of your blog too:)

Liesl December 2, 2009 at 10:51 AM  

I've always had a thing for giraffes. Not sure why. Maybe the long neck? The pattern? They are just so elegant. And cute.

Thanks so much for the chance to win. :)

Jennadesigns December 2, 2009 at 10:53 AM  

Favorite animal? Hmm... does my 6-year-old boy count? LOL :)

SheSpinsSheKnitsSheSews December 2, 2009 at 10:59 AM  

:) I don't have any pets (allergies in the family), so I don't really have a favourite animal - oh wait!! Sheep! I love knitting! Where would knitting be without sheep?? lol

Kimberly December 2, 2009 at 11:00 AM  

Hello! My favorite animal is a hedgehog. I keep trying to convince my husband we need one.
Thanks for hosting a giveaway!

Wendymoon December 2, 2009 at 11:05 AM  

Hiya! I love bunnies and monkeys and owls and puppies. How could I pick just one? ;-) Thanks for doing the giveaway.

Anne at Film and Thread December 2, 2009 at 11:10 AM  

I love a simple giveaway! It gives me more time to spend with my favorite animal, our dog, Ginger! She is an English Setter mix that we got from the shelter 9 years ago and I love her!

Lisa December 2, 2009 at 11:17 AM  

DOGS! Especially, ones that hunt!

merlinthecat December 2, 2009 at 11:18 AM

Thanks for the giveaway! My favorite animal is a horse, which is probably a good thing since I'm a horse vet :-)

babiesdoc December 2, 2009 at 11:43 AM  

my favorite animal is my cat Simon
He is a rescue cat, white with blue eyes

He is also a deaf diabetic but, comes to the refrigerator every morning when I stamp my foot so, he can get his insulin

Randi December 2, 2009 at 11:46 AM  

My favorite animal is the panda, you know, the standard black and white kind.

Theresa December 2, 2009 at 11:48 AM  

My fave animal is my kitty, Kitty. She loves scraps, and I do too! A bag of scraps would be wonderful for both of us!

craftytammie December 2, 2009 at 11:59 AM  

fave animal? for a pet, a cat. But I love giraffes!

Victoria van der Laan December 2, 2009 at 12:06 PM  

Oh, I'm such a sucker for scraps, this would be great! Thank you so much for the chance.

I always find it difficult to choose a favorite animal. I LOVE animals. Maybe polar bears? My daughter is seriously obsessed with cheetahs, which I think is hilarious because I have no idea where that came from.

Natasha December 2, 2009 at 12:24 PM  

Humans, of course.;) But really I love dogs. Dogs are awesome.

Can't Believe I'm Sewing December 2, 2009 at 12:27 PM  

Great question...I'd say my favourite animal is probably a horse. I like just sitting and watching them run in a field.

Jessica December 2, 2009 at 12:28 PM  

Thanks so much for participating in the giveaways!!! My favorite animal would have to be our dog. She is a mini Schnauzer, named Zoey...we love her to pieces.

Anonymous December 2, 2009 at 12:28 PM  

I love frogs so much that I had one tattooed on my leg!

Jenn December 2, 2009 at 12:35 PM  

monkey is my favorite! they cuddle. if they're nice. :-) i love love love scrap packs like that. please pick me! :-)

ikkinlala December 2, 2009 at 12:38 PM  

I'm horrible at choosing favourites, but right now I like the platypus - it just seems so unlikely.

Anya December 2, 2009 at 12:39 PM  

Hmmm, favorite animal...probably anything that doesn't eat my shrubs and flowers. Thanks for the chance!

Anonymous December 2, 2009 at 12:50 PM  

Hello! I absolutely love fabric scraps. My favourite animal.. hmm, that's a tough one to choose. I guess I love nearly all of them, I adore rats, cats, dogs, birds. My favourite wild animal would have to be owls.

Anonymous December 2, 2009 at 12:50 PM  

Your scrap bag looks delicious... I need to check out the rest of your bag to see what you have been making to yield all those pretty scraps... I'd love to win them!

My favorite animal is hmmmm, cats maybe, specifically my cat.

Unknown December 2, 2009 at 12:51 PM  

I'd say my fav. animal is the snow leopard. It has been since my 3rd grade trip to the Carnegie Science Center.

Anonymous December 2, 2009 at 12:52 PM  

Favorite Animal= Alpaca! awesome blog! thanks for joining giveaway day :)

Evelyn December 2, 2009 at 12:56 PM  

Oh, dude - I love a mystery bag of scraps!! My favorite animal today is the bat (just watched a documentary on them the other day!).

~Michelle~ December 2, 2009 at 1:02 PM  

I recognize some of the fabrics, its kinda fun that they're having a 3rd life thru this giveaway, lol! I love dolphins...and cats and horses...

Katie December 2, 2009 at 1:04 PM  

Since middle school my favorite animal was the Cow. Up until last year i would say that is by far may favorite animal. But recently I have found that I am much more attracted to cats as my favorite animal. Not so much inanimat things shaped like cats (but I love inanimate cows), but the animal itself.

Dorothy December 2, 2009 at 1:06 PM  

I've always loved the pygmy marmosets at the entrance to the children's area in the San Diego Zoo. They're the tiniest little mokeys with grumpy old men faces.

Natural Violet December 2, 2009 at 1:07 PM  

Cats are my favorite animals. One is purring on my lap right now.

brianna hope December 2, 2009 at 1:09 PM  

What a great and green prize!

Anonymous December 2, 2009 at 1:13 PM  

My favorite animal is a parrot!

elizabeth December 2, 2009 at 1:16 PM  

I love most animals but have a weakness for dogs... especially long-haired dachshunds. But wouldn't it be wonderful to live with horses? And to swim regularly with dolphins?
Thank you for this giveaway. Scraps are so much fun.

Michelle December 2, 2009 at 1:19 PM  

I'd have to go with the tiger as my favorite animal... a long standing inside joke with my husband.
Thanks for the giveaway, I'm adding yur blog to my feeds!

pippinsequim December 2, 2009 at 1:21 PM  

Oooh, a scrap bag sounds perfect to me right now. I haven't built up many scraps yet and I hate to cut into bigger pieces for just a tiny project.

My favorite animal is the cat. Not super interesting, I know, but they are so cuddly and cool.

Kathie December 2, 2009 at 1:23 PM  

Hi -- Thanks for the giveaway. Favorite animal is a dolphin.

Laura December 2, 2009 at 1:34 PM  

I love watching the gorillas at the zoo!

Gabrielle December 2, 2009 at 1:37 PM

Yes, yes, I love the tomato box. That is all ;o)


Samantha December 2, 2009 at 2:03 PM

Silka December 2, 2009 at 2:06 PM  

I think I love dogs the best but when it comes to wild animals I'm a fan of foxes today (we just found a den on our land).

Thank you for having a giveaway. Silka

Do. not. like. animals. But, that just leaves all the more for people who do! :-D


sb December 2, 2009 at 2:32 PM  

Real animals: dogs, although I can't say I'm much of an animal lover. Cartoons: hippos and elephants are my favorite. They are always the cutest cartoon animals, I think, and look the cutest on baby clothes!

Linda T December 2, 2009 at 2:36 PM  

What's my favourite animal? Good question, since I'm not especially an animal lover. I think I like horses.

I'd love your scraps - count me in!

marymary December 2, 2009 at 2:37 PM

SDGvegan December 2, 2009 at 3:25 PM  

My favorite animals are turtles and frogs. I can't pick just one! Oh and monkeys.

This is a hard choice.

EmileeHope December 2, 2009 at 3:31 PM  

Love your question...different from everyone else! I LOVE elephants!! I have a collection that was started by my Grandma and I have added to. Anytime I, or someone in my family travels anywhere in the world they pick up a little elephant for me, so I have elephants from Mexico, Uganda, South Africa, Brazil, Germany, Italy, India, and more. I love them all!!

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts December 2, 2009 at 3:32 PM

ps saw you over at my blog already :)

Anonymous December 2, 2009 at 3:42 PM  

My favorite animal -
Well, my husband has always told my daughter (and now my son) bedtime stories. When they started 2 years ago, I was pregnant with my son and each member of the family got assigned an animal.

I got the elephant. (My daughter, who is 4, says it is because elephants can't fit in the tunnels at McDonald's, which I couldn't).

So I guess my favorite animal is the elephant. :)

Simply Sarah December 2, 2009 at 3:45 PM  

Yay, scraps! Oh, the possibilities! Thanks for the giveaway!

Gwyneth December 2, 2009 at 3:47 PM  

i promise i am not just saying this b/c of your blog title, but i seriously love hippos!

Meg December 2, 2009 at 3:49 PM  

my favorite animal is the sea otter!

The Sewing Dork December 2, 2009 at 3:50 PM  

does it count to say that my favorite animal is my husband? Cuddly bear/wild tiger/wooly mammoth/ stubborn ox all rolled into one.

Renee Prince, CPA December 2, 2009 at 3:52 PM  

I LOVE little birdies. They make my heart melt!

Vesuviusmama December 2, 2009 at 3:55 PM  

Scraps - how perfect! My favorite animals are all pretty mundane - I was scrolling through other responses and I found some I didn't even know existed. But if forced to pick, I guess I'd say cat. I find them so calming, watching them clean themselves, or having one curled up in a purring ball on my lap. My husband, however, isn't a fan, so our two cats live outside on my porch - poor babies!

Kelli December 2, 2009 at 3:56 PM  

I love my puppy! He's my favorite.

michelou December 2, 2009 at 3:59 PM  

Favourite animal - cats if I'm being general. Specifically I love my little Desert Lynx kitten, Gracey. She is so fun!


CitricSugar December 2, 2009 at 4:16 PM  

I love scraps! I also love most mammals. To have around the house, I enjoy the sarcastic complexity of a cat. From the animal kingdom at large, I have to respect the hippopotamus.

Happy Chanukah!

mouse December 2, 2009 at 4:21 PM  

My favorite animal is the raccoon :) An inside thing between my brother and me :)

Megan December 2, 2009 at 4:36 PM  

The platypus. I mean, how can you not love a platypus?

Aimee December 2, 2009 at 4:53 PM  

I haven't ever had a favorite animal until this last year or so. I've decided that I love turtles. They are so determined!

Maevy December 2, 2009 at 5:05 PM  

Turtles are my favorites, I've had three at home for about 20 years and I never tire of watching them. I like the calm that emanates from them, and they can be pretty funny too!
Yummy bag of scraps, thanks for the chance to win!

Kangaroo December 2, 2009 at 5:13 PM  

I fluctuate between hawk, fox and zebra, and have my whole life. I also have a particular fondness for elephants and hedgehogs. Thanks for the great giveaway!

leigh7911 December 2, 2009 at 5:19 PM  

Ha! What a great question. I'm gonna have to go all boring and say dogs. Wouldn't have three of the blasted things otherwise!

Eema-le December 2, 2009 at 5:24 PM  

I love pygmy marmosets. They're so cute.

Amy December 2, 2009 at 5:25 PM  

I would have to say cats, I have three adorable ones here. But, growing up on a farm I've always loved horses and goats too!

tabitha December 2, 2009 at 5:27 PM  

An easy one...Thanks! My favorite animal is a golden retriever--gotta love 'em!

secret cake December 2, 2009 at 6:11 PM  

My current favorite animal is my three year-old who acts more like equal parts monkey and laughing hyena.

Thanks for the opportunity-- is there anything more fun than scraps??

secretcake (at) yahoo (dot) com

Unknown December 2, 2009 at 6:19 PM  

I don't have a sewing machine, nor do I know how to sew more than to put on a button or baste a hem, but it was fun to think about what my favorite animal is.

I love visiting aquariums because there is something so calming and serene about watching fish. But my favorite animal at any aquarium is the shark - any kind of shark, really, as they are so sleek and confident. Hammerheads are also really cute. Primarily because there is some seriously thick glass between them and me. :-)

Susan December 2, 2009 at 6:20 PM  

My favorite animal is Moose- my beloved 120 lb. dog :) Thanks for the chance to win!

First, I just gotta say that you have the most nicely organized pile of scraps I ever did see. Wanna see my scrap explosion of epic proportions? Check it out here:

Anyway, my cheeks are a sufficient colour of embarrassed red hehee. My fave animal would be the elephant. Because no one messes with it even though it's big and clumsy :P

Mary December 2, 2009 at 8:24 PM  

Oooh scraps! Love them - I'm working on a scrappy trip around the world and these would be just dandy :) My favorite animals are pugs with their comical expressions, curly little tails, and velvety ears.

Jessie December 2, 2009 at 8:26 PM  

wow, nice to have a different sort of question! i guess my favorite animal is an elephant! there's just nothing else like them out there!

Chris Worthy December 2, 2009 at 8:29 PM  

Awesome giveaway -- my favorite animal is the almost 14 year old Lab mix sleeping here on the floor as I type this. :)

Jody December 2, 2009 at 8:52 PM  

Your scraps would come in handy for my string quilt...thank you for a great giveaway. My favourite two cats and dog whom I've had for many many years....I just love them so much:)

Anonymous December 2, 2009 at 9:03 PM  

Fabric many possibilities!

Favorite animals...butterflies and one day I'll talk my husband into letting me own a pitbull. I know, not the most typical pairing for favorites...:)

Breanna S. December 2, 2009 at 9:05 PM  

you may be looking for wild animals here but my favorite animals are sitting with me right now, they are two pug puppies.

Val Miller December 2, 2009 at 9:18 PM  

Boring .. but my favorite is the puppy dog - something about the unconditional love :)

alli b December 2, 2009 at 9:18 PM

Great Giveaway!

Shannon December 2, 2009 at 9:24 PM  

My favorite animal is the unicorn. I had a birthmark on my head that was a bump as a baby and my parents called me their little unicorn.

girlfromipanema December 2, 2009 at 9:30 PM  

Elephants here. I'm following your blog now so I'll be able to check back. Looks like you have some interesting stuff on here. Thanks.

adriane December 2, 2009 at 9:34 PM  

My fave animals are whales, mainly because they are so huge they freak my out! I am in awe of them!
Thanks for the scraps!

Holly December 2, 2009 at 9:42 PM  

Hey, that's a great question! Favorite animal...probably lambs. My daughter loves her Lambie so much, he has endeared his entire family to us. :-)

My favorite animal is a cow. I milked cows on our farm when I was growing up and the cow reminds me of those days.
Thanks for participating in this give away.

Unknown December 2, 2009 at 10:56 PM  

I love scraps. Especially other people's!!!! My favorite animals are cats.
Thanks for the chance to win.

Grace Wong December 2, 2009 at 10:57 PM  

my fave animal is a dog! they're so cute!!!!

Anonymous December 2, 2009 at 11:00 PM  

Ooh, those look scrumptious! Not sure on the favorite animal part - I love cats - but I'm also partial to Seussian friends, like the fiffer-feffer-feff, the Zans, and the Gack. Oh, and the Sneetches.

squareby December 2, 2009 at 11:09 PM  

Favorite animal? Well, that's a new one. Ever since I was little I had a thing for baby polar bears. Not so fond of big polar bears because they can be kind of big and ferocious. But the baby ones are soooooo cute.

Cathy December 2, 2009 at 11:11 PM  

My favorite animal right now is the horse. My 15 month old daughter can identify one with a "nah, nah", which translates to "neigh, neigh". It's fun to see her get excited when she spots a horse somewhere. Thanks for the chance to win.

lesleyandsara December 2, 2009 at 11:24 PM  

dogs win for me, sometimes humans too.


Unknown December 2, 2009 at 11:48 PM  

A puppy[dogs] do it for me:)/

Jenny December 2, 2009 at 11:55 PM  

I love scraps and I love hyennas! our zoo just got them this year and they are fascinating!

Firesong December 3, 2009 at 12:01 AM  

I absolutely love scraps. I have to say my favorite animal is our chihuahua, Toby. I'm not a real pet person but he just showed up in our yard 4 years ago and after a fruitless search for his owners he came to live with us. He is now one of my kids, he is a member of this family. He goes everywhere with us.

Thanks for the giveaway.

Kirsten December 3, 2009 at 12:30 AM  

Lovely scraps!
My favorite animal right now is probably a monkey. While I was pregnant, we called the kid our sea monkey, and now that she is born, she is still our little monkey. Also, the cute little monkeys at the zoo are so fun! Way random, but there you have it :)

the monkeys' mama December 3, 2009 at 12:33 AM  

i actually really love zebras. is that weird? and monkeys.

but, siince i can't own either, I choose cats!

thanks for the great giveaway!

Quiltsmiles December 3, 2009 at 12:48 AM  

Nice lot of scraps. Giraffes are my favorites. Thanks for hosting this giveaway. Happy Holidays.


VictoriousVixen December 3, 2009 at 12:52 AM  

my favorite animal has to be least right now! I've watched a lot of shows on them & they are just fascinating!

mmperdue December 3, 2009 at 12:56 AM  

Squirrels. I love them. So many people think they're pests but I admire their tenacity (and their cute fluffy tails).

mon ami December 3, 2009 at 1:12 AM

Paper Tiger December 3, 2009 at 1:21 AM  

Hi! I have a thing for tigers, but in a smaller way I adore my house cats.

Sara December 3, 2009 at 1:33 AM  

Actually, I love all animals - but, my favorite would be a lion.

Neat fabrics...

Raheli December 3, 2009 at 8:45 AM  

I have chickens, so I'm pretty smitten by them & their eggs... but I'm hoping to get some sheep next year!

Kimberly December 3, 2009 at 8:46 AM

Laurel December 3, 2009 at 9:29 AM  

Fave animal? Hmm... The last time we went to the zoo, the monkeys made me laugh but the lions were the ones that were the most amazing. Is that generic or what?

grendelskin December 3, 2009 at 9:32 AM  

What lovely scraps you have! Thank you for offering to share them. My favorite animal is the sea turtle; I've had the opportunity to snorkel alongside them a couple of times, and I can watch them until pruney fingers force me out of the water!
