Miss Rosie’s stitchin’ at the farmhouse! (+ fabric giveaway!)

When Miss Rosie puts needle to fabric, magic happens.

From Miss Rosie's Farmhouse Favorites

That’s why so many quilters are in love with Miss Rosie—she’s also known as best-selling author Carrie Nelson. And we can’t wait to give you a few peeks inside her latest book, Miss Rosie’s Farmhouse Favorites!

Miss Rosie's Farmhouse Favorites

Carrie’s quilts are chock-full of familiar blocks that quilters love, and she’s nothing short of a master of scrappy style. As you turn the pages of Miss Rosie’s Farmhouse Favorites, you’ll be whisked away to a place where scrap quilts feel right at home—at the farmhouse, where the pace is unhurried, the surroundings are serene, and scrappy patchwork quilts are aplenty. Take a look:

How would it feel to mix scraps like Carrie does, be a pro at print and pattern play, combine colors so effortlessly? You’ll find out with this collection of popular patterns, curated by Carrie herself—and they’re all fat-quarter friendly! A dozen big, beautiful quilt projects come with ideas for enlarging or reducing them to the size you like best. Patterns are written as if Carrie’s sitting right next to you, telling you why she did or didn’t do something (and why you should heed her tales!). Best of all? The book comes with the witty prose and funny stories you’ve come to know and love from Carrie’s other books.

We asked (okay, begged) Carrie to share a few of her favorite tips for choosing fabrics for scrappy quilts. She obliged in her own creative way—read on for a few of her scrap-tastic secrets!

BUT FIRST . . .


FABRIC GIVEAWAY! We asked Carrie to create a one-of-a-kind fat-quarter bundle using Moda fabrics as her muse (because when Carrie’s wearing her other creative hat, she’s the blog and social-media guru for Moda Fabrics). And of course—because it’s how Miss Rosie rolls—she gave us TWO bundles to give away to you!

Moda fabric giveaway #1
Bundle #1: a rainbow of pretty Moda prints

Moda fabric giveaway #2
Bundle #2: a collection of prints perfect for patriotic patchwork

Learn how you can win one of these extraordinary bundles—with fabric hand-picked by Carrie herself—plus a copy of Miss Rosie’s Farmhouse Favorites at the end of the post.


Carrie Nelson (and the original Miss Rosie)I think quilts are stories. You know how folks like to say, “(insert name of activity here) is a microcosm of life”? Well, I think most things are. Maybe everything. When we start something new, we wish we knew everything . . . then we think we do . . . then we realize we don’t. My quilt stories run the gamut from short to long, adventurous to wonderfully comfortable, comically funny to “What was I thinking?” (Five yards of pea-green solid . . . I should’ve seen that train wreck coming.)

When it comes to picking fabric for scrap quilts, the stories are the same. Some days you can wing it and things work out perfectly, and other days you work really, really hard and the results are “nice.” It takes time, thought, and—ugh—a bit of experience to get better.

Raise the Roof quilt

I think the most important thing is to know is yourself. What do you like? When you see a quilt you love, have you ever studied it to figure out why you love it? Is it the color palette—every color of the rainbow or monochromatic? Are the colors muted or dramatic? Are the prints all the same scale or is there a mix—big florals mixed with tiny geometric prints? Is there a theme, or does the quilt have an “everything but the kitchen sink” look?

Wayne and Gordy quilt

I like using prints—the more the better—and I prefer prints with color on them. Tone-on-tone prints are necessary for the overall mix, but most of my favorite fabrics for scrap quilts have at least three colors. I also use a lot of large-scale prints because they add variety when cut into small pieces.

Three Barns quilt
Three Barns quilt (+ a wooly farmhouse friend!)

Once I’ve started choosing fabrics for a quilt, there are two things I’ve learned to do that I think are important. First, don’t arrange your fabrics by color or shade—mix them all up. That’s how they’re going to look in your quilt. If a fabric or color only goes with one or two other pieces, mixing them is how you’ll see that. And second, before you take that piece out, add a few more scraps in a similar color. Sometimes that fabric just needs a friend or two for balance.


Miss Rosie's Farmhouse FavoritesThanks for sharing your scrappy wisdom with us, Carrie!

So, how do you choose fabric when making a scrappy quilt?

a) I head to my scrap bin—which is actually a closet. I have more than enough to work with!

b) I head for my fat quarters—and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more.

c) I don’t have a scrap stash yet, but Miss Rosie’s quilts are inspiring me to start one!

Tell us your answer in the comments and you could win one of the hand-picked fat-quarter bundles from Carrie and our friends at Moda Fabrics plus a copy of Miss Rosie’s Farmhouse Favorites! We’ll choose two random winners one week from today and let you know by email if you win.

Good luck—and remember, when you buy the book at ShopMartingale.com, you get to instantly download the eBook for free.

Comments are closed for this post.

Thanks to all who entered the drawing! The winners are Maureen and Rita.

Maureen says, “I use a combination of fabrics from my scrap stash and fat quarters to find the right colours for my quilts.”

Rita says, “My fat quarter stash is huge, so I challenge myself to see how I can downsize to create a new spin on a quilt.  Love scrap quilts from stash.”

Winners, we’ll email you about your prizes—congratulations!

  • I am a C. Someday I will try a scrappy quilt. I like the rainbow of Moda, thanks for the giveaway!
    cork@pa.rr.com

    —Carol Nelms on February 15, 2017
  • I think B describes me best. I have a stash of FQs that I use and keep adding to thanks to a LQS that has $1 days. I am always looking for more patterns with FQs in them, too! Can’t wait to see this book in "person" so I can thumb through it and dream of all the quilts I want to make!

    —Sandy A in St. Louis on February 15, 2017
  • I head straight to my closet to search through my stash. That’s what I have it for! Lots of pretties in there!

    —Kathy E. on February 15, 2017
  • B typically head for my FQs. That explains why my scrap bins are overflowing!

    —Ashley on February 15, 2017
  • I would say b, I have a stash of fabric at home but starting a new quilt always gives me a reason to take a trip to the quilt shop for more fabric just in case! 😉 I love Miss Rosie’s organized yet scrappy looking quilts!

    —Midge Norman-Barker on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bin and start there. I do love scrappy! That Three barns quilt looks wonderful-put on my list of quilts to do.

    —Pauline Sawatsky on February 15, 2017
  • I haven’t been quilting very long so I don’t have a big stash… YET!

    —Angela on February 15, 2017
  • My answer would be "A". I love scrappy, a quilt shop here on Long Island NY (which has since closed) always offered scraps by the pound. It was always all I could do to control myself when I shopped there. Thanks Carrie for another wonderful book. ;-> Toni Anne

    —Toni Anne Potter on February 15, 2017
  • I’d have to say "A" — and my scrap bins do fill an entire closet! I also have another set up for fat quarters to pull from. The books and fabrics are gorgeous. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Robin McGuire on February 15, 2017
  • I am a scrappy person for my quilts…I do believe I am the Queen of Scraps in our quilt guild…..

    —Kathy J on February 15, 2017
  • a) I head to my scrap bin—which is actually a closet. I have more than enough to work with!

    —Colette on February 15, 2017
  • I am so inspired by Miss Rosie’s books, will head right to the scrap bin as well as my fat quarters to make a scrap quilt.

    —Marilyn on February 15, 2017
  • I’m somewhere between a) and b) – I have scraps that I cut to FQ size and have sorted by color – but never have exactly what I’m looking for when I start a quilt.

    —Sandy Navas on February 15, 2017
  • When I start to make a scrappy quilt I head to my stash. I have taken all of my scraps and divided them into like colors. I took the like colors and put them in bags. Some bags are bigger than others because I have more of those color scraps. When I want to make something I head to the scrap bags. I have a ball!

    —Cynthia Green on February 15, 2017
  • Head for my scrap bin

    —Sandy on February 15, 2017
  • B: All the fat quarter friends in the pool. The color and fabric selection is my favorite part of the quilt design process.

    —Stephanie L. on February 15, 2017
  • a) I head to my scrap bin—which is actually a closet. I have more than enough to work with!

    —Debra Rice on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap closet. I have way too many and soon need to make a scrap quilt to use some up. These are beautiful and great inspiration.

    —Joanne O'Neal on February 15, 2017
  • I don’t have a scrap stash yet, but Miss Rosie’s quilts are inspiring me to start one!

    —Joy Mease on February 15, 2017
  • I would have to say both a and b. My fabric stash is over flowing but somehow I always need that extra trip to the quilt shop to enhance what I already have!

    —Nancy on February 15, 2017
  • A!
    This book is amazing.

    —JoAnn C on February 15, 2017
  • The answer is a … and having the new book would help me make a dent in that closet so I could buy more fabric!

    —Eileen on February 15, 2017
  • A–my stash is HUGE!

    —Carol LaPorte on February 15, 2017
  • I go to a bag of leftovers from a previous project, pick a color and start from there. Then I go into my tub stash and choose fabrics of that color.

    —JUDYD on February 15, 2017
  • I am (b). I love the book and the fabric!

    —Brenda on February 15, 2017
  • B) I head for my fat quarters and to the quilt shop for more

    —Debby Thompson on February 15, 2017
  • I seem to buy fabrics either based on impulse, because I can’t resist what I’m seeing, or specifically for a project. My impulse buys rarely fit anything I need when looking for a specific color. Starting to buy more reproductive fabrics-they always look good and blend easier.

    —Gail on February 15, 2017
  • For my scrappy quilts, I have to grab my fat quarters and then zoom by my LQS to add to them. I have only been quilting going on three years, and my scraps tend to be gender/holiday oriented because that is what I started out quilting…baby blankets and holiday table runners and wall hangings. I’m still accumulating scraps!!!

    —DanyseF on February 15, 2017
  • A little of and a little of B. I have enough scraps to fill several containers-some pre cut and others just strips but I have a stack or two or three of FQs to always add.

    —Judi on February 15, 2017
  • I use a combination of my scrap buckets and uncut fabric I have on hand, and when really necessary I visit my local quilt shop – and it is always necessary.LOL

    —Janette Anderson on February 15, 2017
  • b) I head for my fat quarters and might throw in some scraps from the bin. The book looks fabulous.

    —Shari K. on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bin…well, it is more like my scrap boxes. I do need more, ha ha. Those Moda fabrics are sure beautiful!

    Gail G on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap drawer. Whenever I finish a project I cut the leftover fabric into 5″squares, 10″ squares or 2 1/2 strips. I am ready for patterns involving pre-cuts or I can cut my squares and strips into whatever size pieces I need.

    —Cyndi on February 15, 2017
  • When I make a scrappy quilt I go to my stash. It always seems as if I also need to go to my LQS and get some extras though, so my stash grows and grows!

    —Louise on February 15, 2017
  • My answer would be B. Often I buy pre-cuts or fat quarters with a project or two in mind and then save them for when I’m ready. And yes, it will most probably mean I’ll have to buy more fabric to complete the project. Also, I buy fat quarters or half yards in a particular theme: Christmas or autumn or patriotic or baby. It seems like a lot of my sewing revolves around those themes. Thanks for asking! Your book and fabric are lovely!

    —Barbara Obaker on February 15, 2017
  • I choose my fabric from my scrap bin, fat quarters and from my stash. Congrats to Carrie on the release of this fabulous book.

    —Diane H on February 15, 2017
  • I guess my answer would be "b) I head for my fat quarters—and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more.", although I generally head to my stash, not just my fat quarters or scraps.

    —Carol on February 15, 2017
  • I have 5 boxes of scraps so most scrappy quilts I just pick from them but would probably have to buy more to make all of the quilts in this book.

    —cheryl on February 15, 2017
  • I keep all of my scraps in one location & select only the ones that make me happy. If it makes me smile, then it’s probably going to look good in the quilt.

    —Mary B on February 15, 2017
  • Carrie: I absolutely love the quilts from this book. I’m all about scrappy, but I sometimes (what am I talking about) almost always have a problem stepping outside of my comfort zone mixing fabrics. I’ll study the picture from a book and then try and go for it. I would love to win this amazing giveaway!

    —Carol W. on February 15, 2017
  • C would be my answer. I have a really hard time doing scrappy quilts. Just can’t seem to let go and have fun with the fabric. I think I over do it with the fact things need to play nice in the sandbox.

    —Cathy Gonzalez on February 15, 2017
  • B. I am still working on building my scrap pile.

    —Amy on February 15, 2017
  • I have a lot of scraps! I choose "a".
    Thank you for a chance to win!

    —Ann on February 15, 2017
  • I have to go outside the box and pick "d)." I usually buy a fat quarter bundle. I don’t have a stash yet so I usually need a jump start for a scrappy quilt. I’ve only been quilting for a few years but have already made about 25 quilts. At least half of them started with a bundle of Moda fat quarters!

    —Jim on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a (b), needing to use a huge stash of fat quarters. Those quilts look incredibly comfy and cozy!

    —Jean McD on February 15, 2017
  • I have only begun to start a scrap supply but the patterns and fabrics featured in Carrie’s book and fabric are an inspiration to begin.

    —Terry on February 15, 2017
  • I just go to my stash and pick fabrics that I might want to use in my project. I will often visit a shop to supplement needed fabrics.

    —Sara on February 15, 2017
  • C Would love to start build a stash of scraps.

    Alice on February 15, 2017
  • I am one who likes to have lots of fabric choices available and on hand; and not have to stop working on my project to go to the fabric store. This take too much time away because once I am at the store I can’t get away!

    —Andrea Norris on February 15, 2017
  • B and I LOVE fat Quarters.

    —pam roth on February 15, 2017
  • I absolutely love those yummy prints and her patterns are an eyeful of delight, especially the diagonal rows of triangles and a scattering of stars. The book would be a treasure to be treasured too. Hope it is me.

    Donna on February 15, 2017
  • c) I don’t have a scrap stash yet, but Miss Rosie’s quilts are inspiring me to start one!
    I would love to make the Raise The Roof quilt

    —Mary Gonzales on February 15, 2017
  • I use my stash but usually buy the background to help pull it together

    —Carol on February 15, 2017
  • I would go through my stash but, of course, I’ll take a trip to my local fabric shop and check out for something that I don’t have. I could open a fabric store with my stash!! LOL

    —Mary-Betty Sylvia on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my fabric closet and spend endless hours playing with the fabrics and making fairly random choices.

    —Diane on February 15, 2017
  • My answer would be A. But my whole house is my closet, so have lots to pick from. Everything works in a scrap quilt.

    —katie on February 15, 2017
  • I usually head for my fat quarters – and I probably don’t have to head to the store for more!! I love Raise the Roof and Due South – great designs! I love everything Miss Rosie (aka Carrie Nelson) designs 🙂

    —Darlene B on February 15, 2017
  • Scrap bin(s), all the way!!

    —regina on February 15, 2017
  • I actually fit into none of these categories very well. The closest would be "a". I head for the many boxes of fabric stored in the basement and start pulling favrics out to cut pieces off of.

    I love what I have seen of Aunt Rosie’s quillts and appreciate the opportunity to win a copy of this wonderful book.

    —Barb Nielson on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap closet – and shelves – and boxes – and drawers – I’m afraid there are scraps and fabric everywhere! Will absolutely purchase this book (unless I’m lucky enough to win it!) to help me tame my stash! Love the book and the fabric – just gorgeous!

    —Celene on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my stash of scraps and draw the rest from my stash of fabrics.

    Rosemary Seeley on February 15, 2017
  • C. I don’t really have a stash yet but I aspire to have a large one, one day, to pull from so I can make some amazing quilts, such as the ones Rosie showcased in this book.

    —Lea Jensen on February 15, 2017
  • (a) I head to my scrap bin. . . While I have more than enough fabric and scraps to start new projects, I would love to be chosen as a recipient of this beautiful gift! My efforts at scrappy quilts are "ok" but this book and Ms. Carrie’s expert advice would certainly elevate my level of success. Hoping, hoping, hoping . . .

    —Delores Angus on February 15, 2017
  • B. I head for my fat quarters – or what I like to call my happy stash!

    —Diana on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my stash as I have many scraps and fat quarters. I love Carrie’s patterns as they always appeal to me.

    —Judith Berna on February 15, 2017
  • I always look to see what I have on hand first. Then I will go shopping for colors to fill in the areas my stash can’t cover. Thought my husband thinks I have way too much fabric, I really don’t. Always on he lookout for new colors.

    —Aldeankt T. on February 15, 2017
  • When I make a scrappy quilt, I dig into my bins of fat quarters! I LOVE fat quarters to start.

    —Barbara Lanning on February 15, 2017
  • #1, I sure have a big stash of scraps but they are not as pretty as these fabric choices. I need to take a vacation in my own sewing room and just sort things out! I am sure there is a charity somewhere that would love my leftovers!

    —Kathy G on February 15, 2017
  • Love Miss Rosie ‘s quilts ..
    I would say c describe my situation now.
    Thank you ,

    —lillian lee on February 15, 2017
  • I love to work scrappy, and I have a lifetime supply of scrap bags and bins!

    Jeanne on February 15, 2017
  • I pull fabrics from each of the color families in my fabric closet. Trying to mix it up and not have "matchy-match" fabrics. The more variety, the better/scrappier the quilt!

    —Kate Henchey on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my scrap bin and my fat quarters and somehow still wind up at the quilt shop buying more!

    —Pamela Wright on February 15, 2017
  • I try to get some out of my scraps but usually you can’t find everything there so I head to my fat quarters.

    —Debbie B on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely head for the scrap bin(s)! Though I do like to buy a unifying background 🙂

    —Allison Rehor on February 15, 2017
  • I have a very small scrap stash, so my answer is closest to "C" – I am inspired by Miss Rosie’s Quilts to start one! One of these bundles would sure help me on my way!

    —Karen Carr on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely, B. I have a lot of fabric, but love shopping for more.

    —Kevin B. on February 15, 2017
  • Where to start? Looking thru my 4 (yes, 4) bins of scrap fabric and deciding on a color plan. Never, never have enough fabric to complete the quilts I want to make.
    Thank you Moda and Miss Rosie for the opportunity to win some beautiful new fabric and what looks like a most inspiring book.
    Barbara from Rhode Island.

    —Barbara Niekerk on February 15, 2017
  • I’d have to say a combination of A and B. For a scrap quilt I generally start out with my colony of true scraps but then I almost always dig into my stash. I guess that’s why, even though I make lots of scrap quilts, the colony keeps growing
    😄

    —Diane Hanke on February 15, 2017
  • a) I have scraps and leftovers from projects, I love to use.

    —Tamara Isaacs-Smith on February 15, 2017
  • I’m mostly a b. I try to think how I can use up what I have but then love making a trip to the fabric store to fill in🙂

    —Susan on February 15, 2017
  • b) I head for my fat quarters—and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more.

    —Kristine R. on February 15, 2017
  • I would have to SAY THAT MY ANSWER IS A COMBINATION OD "A" AND "B". I HAVE TONS OF SCRAPS BUT WELCOME AN EXCUSE TO SHOP FOR MORE FABRIC!

    —Barbara Duval on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my fat quarters and charm packs !

    —Sherry on February 15, 2017
  • I love scrap quilts and would be thrilled to win this giveaway. I’d say I’m a A & B combo. Although I have many, many scraps, I always am buying just one more at the quilt shop. 😉

    —Debby on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my scrap bin, which is in my closet! I have lots to choose from.

    —CJ Hines on February 15, 2017
  • Depending on the size I need I go to my closet for fat quarters or I have a rolling cart with bins full of smaller pieces sorted by color.

    —Vickie Olsen on February 15, 2017
  • A for sure. But I will also stop by my local shop (or 2-3) for a few more "perfect" fabrics. Love scrap quilts!

    —Ruth on February 15, 2017
  • I am new to pieced quilts but not new to sewing. I’m endlessly fascinated by the geometry of quilts and how a set or a color combination makes designs look completely different. Just starting my first ever pieced quilt and finding it addictive. I admire all the quilts others have made. This is quite an adventure.

    —Louisa Halmi on February 15, 2017
  • I would have to choose b as any excuse to stop by the quilt shop is a good one. They just might have a better piece of fabric than my stash.

    —Diena Rodd on February 15, 2017
  • Just started Birdseye which I absolutely adore! I’ll be using my scraps, stash, a friend is sharing more and some strips left from a Retreat strip swap. I so agree with Carrie…the more the better. I just bought this book when I headed to the quilt shop for some backing for another quilt and just couldn’t resist! I love every quilt in it and have shared the link with my quilt friends in a Facebook quilt group I admin. Love, love, love! Thanks, Carrie and Miss Rosie for another great book!

    —Diane Muska on February 15, 2017
  • B. I don’t have a large stash of fabric, some I have picked up because I fell in love. So if I am doing something scrappy I need to add this and that to the selection to give it some "pop". Love Miss Rosie’s, it is on the list after some UFOs.

    —Lisa Lehmann on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bins, bins as in plural. I just love these quilts, they’e among the best examples I’ve seen for using tose scraps.

    —INA ANDERSON on February 15, 2017
  • First stop is my stash, then off to the fabric store to add some new goodies!

    —Randi Johnson on February 15, 2017
  • Thank you for validating my own difficulty choosing what really works and what is only "nice"- having to change it up is truly how I’ve built my stash. The idea of studying why we like a certain quilt will be my new focus on color choices.

    —Karen on February 15, 2017
  • I am definitely a A scrap quilter. Not only the closet but a bedroom and my sewing area as well. Love love love Miss Rosie books. Have a few of them. Can’t wait to page through her newest. Keep up the awesome inspirations Carri

    —Robin on February 15, 2017
  • I am an A or B person when it comes to scrappy quilts.

    —Janice Mc Laren on February 15, 2017
  • A little of A and a little of B!!

    —jackie norwood on February 15, 2017
  • A and B I love scraps I save everything because you never know when you might need them sorted by color are so pretty. I also buy fat quarters so I get a little of each print in the collection

    —Sarah c on February 15, 2017
  • A mix of a) and b); I start at the scrap bin, but most of it’s contents are really small, and then to the FQs, and finally, if necessary, to the LQS

    Marly on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my stash closets and then may go to fabric store if missing something the quilt needs. So A & B

    —Shirley Scott on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my closet.

    —Susan on February 15, 2017
  • I use a combination of fabrics from my scrap stash and fat quarters to find the right colours for my quilts.

    —Maureen Haynes on February 15, 2017
  • I have a bin just for my fat quarter stash. But usually there is a missing piece, sooff to the hunt.

    —Debbie on February 15, 2017
  • Oh! Love the scrap quilts…..I think I actually do all three things when color planning a scrap quilt. Always use some scraps, otherwise they can quickly take over the sewing room. Shop for larger pieces, like borders and such. Work with my fat quarters…..I have lots of those, I buy them like candy! What a great book, will have to have it.

    Sheri Bennett on February 15, 2017
  • I have to go with C. Miss Rosie’s quilts are definitely inspiring me to try a scrap quilt. They’re beautiful!

    —Pam on February 15, 2017
  • Love the book and the fabrics!! Such wonderful colors and patterns!

    #B would probably my choice.

    —Christy on February 15, 2017
  • I have a hard time choosing fabric for scrap quilts. I try to go too matchy matchy. I would love to see Carrie’s choices and have her book to study. I guess my scrap stash is somewhere between (b) and (c).

    —Karren Patton on February 15, 2017
  • I usually have at least a color theme in mind for the scrap quilt, but I start with the fabric I will use to pull the quilt together, whether that is background, borders, bindings, etc. Then, I start "shopping" in my fabric closet.
    I love Carrie’s quilts – she gives such a delightful twist to her designs.

    —Sandi Spence on February 15, 2017
  • love the idea of mixing it up for scrappy quilts..

    —kris sullivan on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my stash and make new scraps! Sometimes I even dig through previously made scraps. LOL. Love the patterns shown in this book and would like to own it with new fabrics!

    —Judy on February 15, 2017
  • My scrap stash is pretty meager at this point but I would love to give it a headstart with Miss Rosie’s help. Those patriotic fabrics are gorgeous – but then again, so are the rainbow ones. Choosing a favorite would be very difficult!!

    —Tracy on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my scrap bin but I might have to check my fat quarters too.

    Susan on February 15, 2017
  • A. then possibly B (because I love to shop for fabric) – I have plenty of scraps and Miss Rosie is certainly inspiring me. WOULD LOVE a copy of Miss Rosie’s Farmhouse Favorites!

    —KANDICE OHERN on February 15, 2017
  • I use scraps from my bin & old Linen table cloths I pick up at rummage sales

    —Rose Lamers on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my scrap bin to make a scrappy quilt. That is part of the fun for making a scrap quilt.

    —Laurie Zoecklein on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my closet/ scrap bin!

    —Barbara Isaacson on February 15, 2017
  • I would definately go to my fabric stash and find what I could, maybe shop for additional fabrics to add that certain ump!

    —Gloria Lubenau on February 15, 2017
  • I have color coded scrap bins plus lots of fatquarters. I love Carrie Nelson’s designs and already have some of her books. This one looks like a wonderful collection also. so I guess my answer is A

    —Joan Brown on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my closet and pull out my bins. I then start selecting my fabrics

    —Sheila on February 15, 2017
  • A. I keep all my fabric in closet. Scrap quilts are my favorite. I like the random feel.

    —sara upchurch on February 15, 2017
  • Have more than enough fabrics that I can scrap quilts by various decades.

    —Kay McClain on February 15, 2017
  • I choose a) because as a coordinator for Project Linus scraps are my life. A donation of yardage in our book counts as anything larger than a fat quarter!

    Kathy on February 15, 2017
  • A. Oh yes, closet full of scraps…. Thanks for a chance.

    —Marsha on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my fat quarter stash and then my local quilt shop! I love these scrappy quilts!

    —Noreen Davis on February 15, 2017
  • First (a) then (b). I love the quilts in the book and the fabric is beautiful! Thank you for the chance to win.

    —Susan on February 15, 2017
  • Beautiful quilts. Love to use some of my stash on them.

    —Mary Ann Firehammer on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bin—which is actually a closet. I have more than enough to work with! Beautiful book!

    —Carolyn Van Petten on February 15, 2017
  • B. My stash isn’t very big. I’ve been quilting for about 2 years. Scrappy quilts are my favorite 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Gail A Dvorchak on February 15, 2017
  • I just love the Raise the roof pattern. I have a bin full of scraps, a basket full of fat quarters and enough fabric (I can’t resist fabric) that I could make a beautiful quilt.

    —Vivian Bernsen on February 15, 2017
  • Oh my goodness! Those quilts are simply beautiful. I mostly use a combination of scraps and fat quarters when making a scrappy quilt. I’m still learning and even the ‘disasters’ play their part in guiding me to make better choices next time!

    —Gillian on February 15, 2017
  • c) I don’t have a scrap stash yet, but Miss Rosie’s quilts are inspiring me to start one!

    —Linda Edwards on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my fat quarters and then shop for additional fabric.

    —Trudy Keller on February 15, 2017
  • I like "controlled" scrappy. I’ll start with a background color and a matching sashing or border. Then I gather my scraps and if there is not enough of one color then I might stop in a quilt shoppe and pick up a yard of the missing color 🙂

    —Marsha Bradford on February 15, 2017
  • I definitely would go my color-coded scrap bins in the closet. I would SO love to win one of those fabric bundles. I have never been able to work with a designer’s collection where all the colors match perfectly. Please pick me.

    —Ruth Bradford on February 15, 2017
  • I usually look in my FQ stash and my strip bins. I also have a Barrister’s bookcase where I store my half-yards by color. The last place I head is the garage where I have my fabric coded bins. Ugh. Hot in the summer, icy in the winter, and always dusty. I need a better system of storage, but winning this book will help me use them up?

    —michele breault on February 15, 2017
  • What beautiful quilts! I live the scrappy look.
    The setting is spectacular!

    —Eileen on February 15, 2017
  • The fabrics are beautifully designed: complimenting but not copying each other giving a true stash effect. Her quilt designs give a breath of fresh air into charming traditional patterns. Would be wonderful and inspirational to work with.

    —Patty Daurizio on February 15, 2017
  • I have a tall wicker basket beside my sewing machine. All my scraps and extra pieces go into it. When it’s full I make scrap quilts for awhile.

    —Susan Pawlak on February 15, 2017
  • I’ll start with "a" and see what more I need. Beautiful quilts in your book.

    —AS on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my stash – but always seem to find an excuse to buy more!

    —Marilyn Goehl on February 15, 2017
  • Just start digging through the tons of scraps that I have gathered in the 16 years of quilting..Haven,t met a scrap I didn’t like…

    Doris DeRoche on February 15, 2017
  • A) Scrappy is my absolute favorite ! I head to my stash closet !

    —Lois Capper on February 15, 2017
  • I usually have enough in my stash, but always buy a little more so my stash doesn’t disappear!

    —Eleanor Krueger on February 15, 2017
  • It would have to be A for me. I LOVE scrap quilts. I always head to the remnants bit at the fabric store upon entering.

    —Connie on February 15, 2017
  • It’s usually a combination of fat quarters and scraps. I have plenty of both!! Love the book. so many ideas.

    —Kris on February 15, 2017
  • I have a lot of scraps, but never know what to do with them!

    —Leslie on February 15, 2017
  • a) I head to my scrap bin—which is actually a closet. I have more than enough to work with!

    I love Scrappy quilts!

    —Maxine E. on February 15, 2017
  • I’m mostly an "A" tho I don’t have a "scrap closet". I do, however, have scraps, not by color, but cut into "scrappy" sizes. Love, love, LOVE Miss Rosie books! Hope I win! Thanks for the article & can’t wait to see the new book! Love the quilts in this post sew much!

    —Jan B on February 15, 2017
  • I use a combination of a (1) and b (2). I have a pretty big stash because I have projects in my head and collect fabrics as I find them that might work for what I’m thinking on. When I’m picking fabrics to actually start a new project I comb through the stash and pull the ones that are possibilities but somehow it’s never enough and I end up running to get a few more or some border yardage or the perfect accent color.

    —Rebecca Wilson on February 15, 2017
  • A. I head to my closet 🙂 When I shop though, I’m usually thinking of a scrappy look. I love this new book. Thank you for the sweet giveaway!

    Loris Mills on February 15, 2017
  • Both A and B. Carrie is so incredibly talented!

    —Alice on February 15, 2017
  • I do have quite a few "scraps" but have them cut into strips/squares, etc. I do have one box full of odd sized pieces for the next crazy quilt type project. I have a couple of boxes of FQs collected just because I liked them. And I have yardage to round out the gamut. My favorite is when I use the scraps that seem odd sized; I love to put them together into something amazing. Thank you for sharing more inspiration!

    —Mary C on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my color arranged scrap bins. I have one cabinet dedicated to them.

    —Virginia Over on February 15, 2017
  • I am B, I have some stash but I long for more. You can’t every have too many. I don’t drive so I like to have enough at home so that I can work on my quilts whenever I want to. I love quilts and love to give them away to those I love.

    Amelia Moore on February 15, 2017
  • For my scrap quilts I head to my stash of scraps. I pull whatever I like.

    —Lanetta on February 15, 2017
  • I head for the closet and various other cabinets/containers where fabric is stashed. Choosing colors to get the look I want is still challenging to me so I appreciate the tips – especially "study the quilts you like".

    —Loraine on February 15, 2017
  • I am B, I have some stash but I long for more. You can’t every have too many. I don’t drive so I like to have enough at home so that I can work on my quilts whenever I want to. I love quilts and love to give them away to those I love.

    Amelia on February 15, 2017
  • Thank you for the generous giveaway. I have one stash bin mostly scraps

    —Denise on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my newly growing fabric stash, and add to it as needed!

    —Sandy on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my scrap bin, then check the fat quarters. If necessary I head for the fabric shop. I just do it all LOL.

    —Sheryl Hunt on February 15, 2017
  • First I head to my FQ’s then supplement them if needed at my fav quilt shop. The gathering might be the best part of the process!

    —Kathy on February 15, 2017
  • The scraps quilts I have made so far have actually been from my stash in an attempt to use some of them up so I don’t feel guilty for buying more!!

    Carolyn on February 15, 2017
  • I usually head to my stash first and then, if I feel I need more (and what quilter doesn’t need more fabric!!!), I head out to my local quilt shop.
    I have Miss Rosie’s Spice of Life Quilts and love it!

    —Karen Bennett on February 15, 2017
  • I head for the fat quarters, but try to add some scraps when I start getting a feel for the look I want. Love Miss Rosie’s designs!!

    —Jeannette on February 15, 2017
  • Oh, my scraps take up half a dozen bins, so I always forage there first. But I access the stash when I want to concentrate on one color, or one theme. The scrappy look is a wonderful way to make use of fabrics!

    —Margaret Minton on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely A is my answer! I have a huge scam pile that keeps growing as I am never sure what to with it! So glad to see another book by Miss Rosie!

    —Kerry Linklater on February 15, 2017
  • I would choose B. Never seem to have the right mix. Love Raise the Roof and would live to do that one. Next on my to do list. Thanks gor the chance to win one of the fabulous fat quarter bundles.

    —Sandy Rader on February 15, 2017
  • Beautiful quilts and great looking book…I do have scraps but still find it a challenge at times to put it all together. One of my favorite classes was one where we cut out the pieces for the quilt top and then placed them in brown paper bags. You then had to reach in and use the piece you selected. The only way you could throw a piece back in the bag was if you had pulled the same fabric. You couldn’t put the same piece of fabric next to each other. The quilts turned out very scrappy and amazingly beautiful.

    —Cindy W on February 15, 2017
  • I love scrap quilts. I raid my stash and then add a few more from the quilt shop. I would love to have Miss Rosie’s book.

    —Mary Lou Palmer on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my armoire where I keep my stash. Then I usually swing by a local quilt shop to add a few new fabrics as well

    Shannon Wicker on February 15, 2017
  • I am rather new so have not done much with my scraps other than stash them in a bin. I know they are there for an applique item. One of these days they will need to be created into a quilt. Love the book and sample quilts. Thanks for sharing!

    —Pam on February 15, 2017
  • I love scrapy quilts. The variety of colors and fabrics gives the quilt dimension and interest. When I choose fabrics, I go for theme such as reproductions or the 30’s. Then I choose fabrics that are pleasing to the eye. Do they compliment each other. Even though its scrapy. I don’t want a lot of busy. I want people to see the quilt and think of home. And think it’s just like the quilts that my grandma use to make.

    —Denise Hopkins on February 15, 2017
  • The answer would be A. The quilts in this book look wonderful and are a great way to use a lot of scraps. Thanks for the opportunity to win the fat quarter collection and book. The pictures are amazing and the quilt designs look great! This looks like a great book!

    —Christie on February 15, 2017
  • b) I head for my fat quarters – and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more.

    —Cheryl on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bins which I’m trying to organize but not sure that will happen!

    —Becky Stipe on February 15, 2017
  • I start with the scrap bins but usually like to add some new fat quarters to the mix.
    Love the pictures of the quilts. Favorite one is all those nine patches.

    —Colleen on February 15, 2017
  • I do not have scrap bin, but would love to win one of the fabric bundles. They would inspire anybody to get quilting

    —Ann Hind on February 15, 2017
  • A -I love scrappy quilts.This book looks like it has some great ideas.

    —Vicki on February 15, 2017
  • I choose from my scraps and sometimes I go shopping for more to add to it. I love Miss Rosie’s quilts! I have made a number of her quilts. Hope to win her book as I would love to have it in my collection. Plus I have a LOT of scraps to use up!

    —Ann W on February 15, 2017
  • a) I try to head to my scrap bin…but I find it difficult. I seem to want everything to match and go together. Easiest time I had was making one from my grandmothers scraps she had precut for a different project. Another I had to keep telling myself ‘this quilt is to be used, to be used for a picnic, not for a show, no one cares if it matches, the cats will sleep on it when its on the bed’. Yes, I talk to myself a lot when I make a scrap quilt 🙂

    —Kathi Ernst on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a c) I don’t have a scrap stash yet, but Miss Rosie’s quilts are inspiring me to start one! I haven’t made enough quilts yet to have many scraps. I love the farmhouse look of Miss Rosie’s quilts. So me!

    —Judy on February 15, 2017
  • I am trying to use up the closet and bins of fabric I have collected over the years, so I guess I would choose A. However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t supplement what I have with MORE new fabric! Would love to win one of the bundles! May need to purchase this new Miss Rosie book.

    —Katherine K Morvay on February 15, 2017
  • I would say B. My stash of material is beautiful. But one idea leads to another trip to the fabric shop to bring the idea to life. 🙂

    —Sarah Austin on February 15, 2017
  • I keep them stored in a dark room in plastic containers, hoping this will keep them from multiplying during the night! Love to work with a purely scrapbag look but sometimes a pattern dictates to use a certain combinations of colors.

    —Chris on February 15, 2017
  • A would be my answer. I am currently making batik scrappy quilts to help lower my scraps and stash. Luckily, MOST batiks will look great with others when cut into strips and squares. When I work with my cotton scraps, I often feel the need to add a few fabrics to the mix, hopefully fabrics already in my fat quarter bin. Whichever way, I never seem to run out of – or even lower – my scrap stash! I love the photos of Miss Rosie’s quilts projects.

    —Audrey on February 15, 2017
  • Go to fat quarters and hope. to win one of the fabric bundles.

    —Ann Hind on February 15, 2017
  • I think probably B fits best. I just love Miss Rosie and all of her creative ideas. Would love to win either bundle!

    —Audrey on February 15, 2017
  • I always start with my stash and scraps. I am trying to use my scraps and it seems the bins of scraps never get smaller. I generally need to go to the shops for a coordinating color (maybe background) to blend all together. I like the brighter colors. Maybe because I do lots of children’s quilts.

    —Anne Hilgers on February 15, 2017
  • Isn’t it strange that my ‘scrap bin’ seems to grow whether I make quilts or not…..Have made a few scrappy quilts, so I’m definitely a type A.
    Lovely quilts, miss Rosie.

    —Hedda Boon on February 15, 2017
  • I am hoping Miss Rosie’s book gives me the knowledge and confidence to learn to sew from my stash to make these beautiful quilts. I am so anxious to receive the book. However, I tend to buy new fabric to create patterns since I have the people in the shop giving me the yea or nay on my choices and I am being swallowed up by my stash!! I need help!! Boy do I need help! Thank you for all the lovely books and ideas you bring to us.

    —Kathy Haydysch on February 15, 2017
  • I would say #2 fits me best, as I have a rather large collection of fat quarters, (mostly reproduction colors or muted colors) but who ever has all they need. It is important to support our local quilt shops and I do my best to do just that!
    I love either of the bundles, but bundle #1 is out of my usual color ranges ; however, I would really love to win that one as those colors are so pretty together.
    Judy Casteel

    —Judy Casteel on February 15, 2017
  • I have my scraps sorted by color. That is where I go to first. Then my stash is arranged by color as well as my fat quarters. I just dive in and start picking fabrics that excite me. I have a wonderful time playing with all my fabrics and deciding which one will go with all my other fabric friends!

    —Ann West on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bins!

    —Martha Henrichs on February 15, 2017
  • Don’t save all my little scraps, have specific sizes I cut them to. But for quilts like Miss Rosie makes I would dive into the fat quarter stash I have. They are already sorted by color so I could just grab a handful and get started. Love the quilts in the new book.

    —pamela green on February 15, 2017
  • I’m into #B..I head to my fat quarters and zip by my LQS to add to my pile from my stash. Carrie, your new book looks awesome! Would love to add it to my library!

    —Hallie on February 15, 2017
  • Oops, I forgot to pick A as my choice.

    —Ann West on February 15, 2017
  • Our whole old farmhouse is my wife’s closet and she needs your ideas to keep making more quilts for charity.

    —Chuck on February 15, 2017
  • I would chose B. Head toward my multitude of fat quarters. I have been a a fan of Miss Rosie for a long time and would like to get this book. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Jean Gerretsen on February 15, 2017
  • Both A and B. Love the quilts in this new book.

    —Peg on February 15, 2017
  • I usually start looking first in my scrap container, supplement with fat quarters or remnants that I might have picked up at the quilt store. Carrie’s designs almost always grab me as I love her mix of color and design. This is an amazing giveaway!

    —Marie Eddins on February 15, 2017
  • It’s the scrap bin – definitely. But I have to choose WHICH scrap bin, depending on the pattern!

    —Marilyn on February 15, 2017
  • I actually use a chest in my guest bedroom. I’d love to use some of them in this great book.

    —Carol Vickers on February 15, 2017
  • Always looking for ant excuse to visit a quilt store….. would love to shop to star off on one of these fun looking projects. Then head to my stash for extras to fill in.

    —Greta Cornelison on February 15, 2017
  • Hello: I usually do (a) but will also do (b).
    I have fabric from the 90’s when I first started quilting in earnest, and a LOT of those prints are great for these scrap quilts. I recently used only fabrics from my stash for an 80 x 80 quilt, only buying yardage for the backing. It is great!! I still have LOTS of fabric left to use up for projects like these. I really like Carrie’s style.

    —Bebe on February 15, 2017
  • I think B best describes me, though A could also work. But usually, I head to my fat quarters and then I just might have to go to my favorite quilt shop to add to those I already have. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Lin H on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my stash for FQ and also hit the store. Answer b

    —Sandra Bakka on February 15, 2017
  • I start with my stash bin of scraps, and then move to my stacks and stacks of fabric. I tend to focus on fabrics that reflect the kind of quilt I am making: rustic, modern, bright, tonal, etc. I find it’s less a matter of the quilt pattern, but more my mood at the time that dictates the family of fabrics. Then, I throw in a zinger fabric, just to make it more interesting!

    —Marsa on February 15, 2017
  • I am an A. LOL. Would love to add to it though 🙂 Thanks for the chance

    —Sandy O on February 15, 2017
  • I have a scrap bin – not quite a closet full yet though

    —Kathy Luehrs on February 15, 2017
  • "B" I save everything that can have a 1/4 inch seam around the circumference. Then I check my stash to fit a pleasing palette. I look to shee what other quilters have done with their scraps, and I start sewing.

    —Mary Katherine Hook on February 15, 2017
  • I would have to say "A". Love my huge assortment of scraos but that never stops me from buying fat eighths bundles!! I have all your books & many of your Snibbles patterns—love them all!. Cant wait to see your new book coming out, wouldnt that be something to win!

    —Leslie Rozum on February 15, 2017
  • A. I head to my scrap bin which is actually a closet. I have more than enough to work with! That’s my answer and I am sticking to it. I love her examples. Thank you for this opportunity!

    —Janey Cook on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my scrap bin(s). I appliqué with many small pieces, so I have a lot of scraps. I just love scrappy quilts.

    —Janet Beyea on February 15, 2017
  • I’m C. I’m inspired by your quilts.

    —Deb on February 15, 2017
  • I start with my stash, but need to use these ideas to shrink my collection of fabric.

    —Nadja on February 15, 2017
  • I head for the closet where the F4’s are arranged by color in their file boxes. I’m a F4 junkie.If I need more I check out the larger boxes containing yardage also arranged by color. Then a visit to the quilt shop to fill in the assortment because "more is always better". Love your quilts. Wish I had room for golden retriever but I have too much fabric!!!

    —Minnette Cummins on February 15, 2017
  • B would probably best describe me. I pull some of my favorite FQs that seem to match the "vibe" of the quilt/pattern. If necessary, I’ll cut up some yardage or head to the quilt shop to add to the mix.

    —Debbie K on February 15, 2017
  • I would say C. I have recently retired and this is a new hobby for me. I haven’t made that many quilts yet to have a stash so I usually like to pick up kits or have my quilt shop associate help me pick out fabrics, color and prints. I would love this opportunity to gain more experience.

    Jeanne Hammerstrom on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my color organized drawers where even my small scraps are bagged. I then start pulling fabrics in the colors I think would work best for that pattern. Once pulled, I place them on a table under a better light and start fine-tuning. Takes time!

    —Darla Epperson on February 15, 2017
  • First, let me say that ALL the quilts shown in Miss Rosie’s new book look amazing and inspire me to want to make every one of them!
    My color choices usually are determined by where the quilt will be…….and if the colors go in that room/ or for that person.
    I would have to chose B. Although I have enough fabric to open my own shop, I do not need a "reason" to go to a fabric shop to buy more fabric……Going to a fabric store (or shopping for fabric online) is like needing oxygen to breath! It is part of life…..

    —Goldie Lane on February 15, 2017
  • Love Carrie – so happy she has another book out! I would say my answer is b, since "scrappy" does not come easy to me. Love her quilts!

    —Rebeccar on February 15, 2017
  • I typically start with my stash and then search for other fabrics to fill in whatever is lacking. Love Miss Rosie’s designs!

    —Dianne on February 15, 2017
  • B for me. I’m a Fat Quarter junkie!

    —Cathy on February 15, 2017
  • B. I have some scraps but not enough for larger quilts. I do have some fat quarters and other pre-cuts.

    —MoeWest on February 15, 2017
  • I love the look of scrap quilts. I have a lot of fabrics and fat quarters but it never hurts to have more. Always picking up something that I like without knowing what I will make with it. Would love to win the fat quarter bundles.

    —Sylvia on February 15, 2017
  • Love scrap quilts. I pull from my stash as well as recycled thrift store shirts

    —Enid chapman on February 15, 2017
  • I’m an A, I have plenty of fabric….but that doesn’t stop me from adding to the stash if I see a yummy bundle like the #2 one Carrie put together–love it!! I think it should be packaged for sale!

    —Karen in Breezy Point on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my stash first and see what I come up with. If I need to fill in with more fabric I will look on-line since the closest quilt shop is an hour drive away.
    I LOVE MISS Rosie patterns! They always turn out great and the instructions are well written.

    —Beth Riesen on February 15, 2017
  • I try to use the fabric I already have, but sometimes a new luscious line calls my name and I just have to have it. This new fabric has my name on its lips.

    —Donna Schalge on February 15, 2017
  • I’m an A/B! A girl can never have too much to work with. Love the quilts you’ve shown from the book. And the little black sheep is adorable! Thanks for the chance to win the gorgeous fabrics. What an inspiration!

    —Dianne Ducello on February 15, 2017
  • Probably neither. I just race to the quilt store to see what is new and what might inspire me. THEN, I go back to my scrap bin and see if I have any friends to accompany what I bring home from the quilt store.

    —diane jaquith on February 15, 2017
  • I head for the fat quarters (and jelly rolls) (and some charm packs) but might head for the quilt shop for more. The farmhouse favorite quilts look easy enough for me to try!

    —LP Starr on February 15, 2017
  • a
    Although I can always use more fabric!

    —Debbie on February 15, 2017

  • A+ and always need more inspirational ideas.

    —MARY MALHEIM on February 15, 2017
  • I choose (b). I have many choices. Love the book! ☺️

    —Tammy on February 15, 2017
  • c) I don’t have a scrap stash yet, but Miss Rosie’s quilts are inspiring me to start one! Her quilts are lovely!

    —Janie M on February 15, 2017
  • I start with my scraps. There are so many I want to use them up before creating more while cutting into fat quarters or yardage. The fabric bundles are both beautiful and I can imagine some beautiful quilts being made with them. Thanks for a chance to win in the giveaway!

    —Marsha B on February 15, 2017
  • My answer is B. Since my scraps don’t always look good together I need help with some newer fat quarters from the quilt shop. Not a bad thing since I support those quilt shops! B

    —Barb Machuga on February 15, 2017
  • I am definitely an "A". I have scraps neatly cut to size in plastic boxes, scraps waiting for trimming in large paper boxes, and cupboards of fabric sorted by color. I want to use it all!!!

    Pat on February 15, 2017
  • Mostly A but sometimes B It depend on the pattern Would love the fabric and book.

    —Betty 4 4 on February 15, 2017
  • I think I do more with answer A.

    —Cindy Brown on February 15, 2017
  • My answer is a combination of A and B. I check my stash to see what I have that would work for the quilt and then head off to the quilt store to get a few more pieces to add to what I already have. More is better . . . right?

    —Jeanette on February 15, 2017
  • B and some of my closet full of fabrics. Love Moda fabrics & this book looks amazing. Thanks for letting me try to win.

    Dorothy Caswell on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely a) I have more than enough scraps to make MANY scrap quilts! I love the patriotic fabric selection. Nice giveaway- thanks!

    —Dottie Macomber on February 15, 2017
  • I definitely head for my fat quarters, then look through my stash, and ALWAYS end up buying a little something extra to finish!

    —Nicole Worthington on February 15, 2017
  • I would choose b) I head for my fat quarters—and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more.
    I love the rainbow line but both are fabulous!!

    —Susan Smith on February 15, 2017
  • Well I would choose A and then probably B too, because you can NEVER have too many fabrics, can you?!

    Monique on February 15, 2017
  • I choose B, use something I have and look for more inspiration at my LQS. I try to keep exploring!

    —Cara Shea on February 15, 2017
  • a) I head to my scrap bin—which is actually my attic. I have more than enough to work with!

    —Carol W on February 15, 2017
  • I start with one color to dominate, then play with my stash to see what I want with it. Sometimes I find a print and realize it’s got everything I want, so then I match it to other pieces.

    betty nelson on February 15, 2017
  • While I go to my stash first – and it’s not huge, but fairly large – I am also likely to mix in something new. I get the satisfaction of using what I have AND the pleasure of doing a bit of shopping.

    Love this new book from Miss Rosie. Thank you for the opportunity to win a bundle hand picked by her!

    —Robin on February 15, 2017
  • I do have a good size fabric scrap stash, but haven’t found a reason to use it. Well, this book is it! So many wonderful quilts! I’d love to win this and get started using up my scrap stash! I’d also love to win the fat quarter bundle B as these are my favorite colors.

    —Sandy Post on February 15, 2017
  • I am a beginning quilter so I do not have a large scrap bin. I love quilts and hope to make one soon and would love to get Miss Rosies book and the fabric. Thank you for allowing me to try to win this beautiful book and material.

    Gerry Kenney

    —Gerry Kenney on February 15, 2017
  • I like to try and start with scraps, but I usually can’t come up with the right combination so I start fresh and buy a new bundle!

    —Nicole on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bin! Years ago I cut up all my scraps as Bonnie Hunger suggested. Now I can use them to make some of the quilt from your new book!

    —Angelia Ulrich on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bin-which is actually a closet. I have more than enough to work with! I try getting my scrap bin and stash smaller, but it seems each time I drive by a quilt store there is an outside force telling me I might find a perfect piece of fabric that will go with everything. Then Martingale comes out with yet another book full of quilts I just have to make; of coarse the last piece of fabric I purchased which will go with everything, needs a fat quarter bundle. The force pulls me towards the fabric store once again.

    —JaniceCarole on February 15, 2017
  • I would have to say "A". I have collected fabrics for years. I usually have everything I need. Sometimes I may have to add a solid. I never seem to have enough solids.

    —Theresa Sheldon on February 15, 2017
  • a. I usually shop my stash first then may go buy a fabric to pull it all together. Hope I win. Love the fabrics and book.

    —Becky DuBose on February 15, 2017
  • I always head to my scrap bin first… Using bits from previous quilts is like a trip down memory lane for me. I think "Due South" will be my next quilt.

    —Sheila on February 15, 2017
  • Thanks for a chance to win the giveaway. I love all of her quilts and would be pleased to win either A or B not particular. I would put them to good use for sure.

    —Bev on February 15, 2017
  • C, I have just the beginnings of a scrap stash and add to it by buying extra yardage when I do a quilt.

    —JudyP on February 15, 2017
  • b) I head for my fat quarters—and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more. But honestly, I do not need an excuse to visit my local quilt shop…sometimes it’s nice to look without something in mind. Thanks for the chance to win. Love Miss Rosie!

    —Jill A on February 15, 2017
  • I have plenty of scraps, but I love shopping for fabric so my choice is (b)

    —Tess on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bins. I usually don’t have enough scraps of the correct colours so I go to the fabric that is in my stash as well. I beg, borrow and steal scraps from friends too. This book looks like a great scraps buster, would love to make every quilt!

    —Marg on February 15, 2017
  • A- is my answer – I have been given fabric as well as bought some of my own – love using the various colors of fabrics that I have on hand.

    —Beverly Porter on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a C! I have some scraps but nearly enough for a quilt! I’ve always wanted to do a scrappy quilt though and this book should be just the thing I need to spur me on – even if I have to go buy "scraps"!! Thanks so much for the chance to win 🙂

    —Debby E on February 15, 2017
  • I look through my scraps and then go to my stash of fabric. If I do not have enough I look for co-ordinating fat quarters. I love the Raise the Roof pattern and very much appreciate the opportunity to win! Thank you.

    —Gail Cornock on February 15, 2017
  • I love Miss Rosie quilts and books! I usually pick a piece of fabric from my stash that has several colors in it. Then I go through all of my stash and pull anything that works with it. If there isn’t enough variety then it is off to the LQS. I love the choosing as much as the sewing! Thanks for this chance to win some beautiful Moda fabric and a new Miss Rosie book!!

    —Lorrie Moss on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my fat quarters arranged by collection. I love Moda fabric and I love Carrie’s new book!

    —Frances Claassens on February 15, 2017
  • I’m an a. My scraps are sorted by type … 30’s, civil war, Christmas, and blenders… I love miss Rosie’s patters and would love to win her book..

    —Barbara on February 15, 2017
  • I’ve built quite a scrap pile over the years so my answer is A. Thanks for the opportunity to win a fabric bundle and your new book !!

    —Nancy Johnson on February 15, 2017
  • I am definitely an A. I love scrap quilts!

    —DebrafromMD on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my stash and only add when I "need" more fabric. I seem to "need" more all the time.

    —Jean Jacobs on February 15, 2017
  • I don’t have a stash yet but I saved every little leftover scrap from my project. I look forward to building my stash.

    —Ruth La Pointe on February 15, 2017
  • There are plenty of choices for me in my stash. I love scrap quilts and heard somewhere that to make them work always include red. Love red love scraps…all happy here.

    —susan on February 15, 2017
  • I head for the fabric store to buy remnants

    —c krutzfeldt on February 15, 2017
  • My scraps are in many bins. Your fabric giveaway is so wonderful. Thank you.

    Mary Arntson on February 15, 2017
  • I guess if my scraps were better organized, I’d say a), but it’s so much fun to buy more fabric, so I’m more likely to look through my fat quarters then head out to the quilt store! Love these quilts!

    —Diane Nishri on February 15, 2017
  • Scrappy is outside my comfort zone so B. I head to the fat quarters and/or store. Less scrappy, more of an organized melting pot.

    —Cindy on February 15, 2017
  • I would head for my scrap stash! Enjoyed the article and thank you for a chance to win! Thank you.

    —LoAnn Trowbridge on February 15, 2017
  • #3. Need to build my stash. Love the scrappy quilts

    —Joan Jarrett on February 15, 2017
  • I go through my stash first,then dig through the scrap bins–they are sorted by color or theme–and then through the fat quarters, choosing the friendly fabrics.

    I used to think I had too much fabric–but I almost never need to buy new stuff. Carrie’s books are the ones I look at for inspiration!

    —Joy Kidwell on February 15, 2017
  • I found that I was being too "matchy-matchy" so, my most recent scrap quilt I went through the WHOLE STASH that was not already dedicated to a future quilt and anything that was less than 1/2 yd or that had been on the shelf for awhile (like 5 years or so…) was pulled and put into a bin. I was working on 1/2 square and strips, so every fabric was cut into 5″ square and 2 1/2″ strips. Oh my, I probably have enough cut for 3 quilts! Of course, I’ll choose another pattern for the next two.

    —Mary Dahlberg on February 15, 2017
  • Scraps are the best! Love the challenge of making them work for me. Miss Rosie is always a favorite…use for coffee table books, my special eye candy.

    —Linda Lee on February 15, 2017
  • I wish I could say that I would choose B, but I often get all the fabrics for a new project at one time at a favorite quilt shop. Maybe this book would push me to tackle my stash! I love the projects and fabrics pictured!

    —Judy R. on February 15, 2017
  • I go with A and than I will have to go and background material and of course I will find something more for my stash.

    —Julie Noteware on February 15, 2017
  • Usually a combination of A and B for scrap quilts. Of course, that creates more scraps!

    —Vicki Fox on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap drawers when I start a scrappy quilt, so my answer is A. I enjoy creating a quilt made from much loved scraps. For my wedding 46 years ago, my mother gave me a Sunbonnet Sue quilt made from scraps of dresses she had made me starting in elementary school. I love scrappy quilts!

    —Lana Stewart on February 15, 2017
  • A, head to my scrap bin which are many! And a note to Carrie, I will take 5 yards of pea green any day! Green is my natural 😊

    —Marilynn on February 15, 2017
  • Depends on the quilt. A generically scrappy quilt-I head for my scraps. If it’s a certain look I want I go with my precut stash.

    —Lynne Gould on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bin. Seems the scraps never go away. I love using them and remembering the quilts I have made with that fabric. I love scrap quilts.

    —Beverly Nelson on February 15, 2017
  • I am an A, but it’s actually more like a room instead of a closet! But then I’m a B too. No wonder how many scrappy quilts I make my stash keeps growing! Thanks for the chance to win these lovely fabrics.

    —Diane B. on February 15, 2017
  • a fits me best. I have a huge stash and absolutely adore scrappy quilts. I remember my first one and it was so controlled — just different blues with the same background fabric. Now I use all colors and even scrap the backgrounds. Love how they come out.

    —Dorothy Carter on February 15, 2017
  • Love Miss Rosie’s choices which inspires us to make scrappy quilts. I would love to win a bundle to get me started! Thank you so much for the chance!

    —Dotti Wahlers on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap stash first, pick out a few stand-out pieces and then try to match with others. I will probably end up going to the fabric store as well even though I have a CLOSET full of fabric.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win. I am anxious to start one of Miss Rosie’ quilts.

    —Barbara Pryga on February 15, 2017
  • I am A, I usually have enough scraps for more than one quilt.

    —Vicki H on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a mixture of a and b. Sometimes I like the surprise of my scrap bin and sometimes I like my FQ’s to have a little more of each print in a quilt. Thanks

    —Donna Lesar on February 15, 2017
  • B. I usually go to my stash to find coordinating colors for my scrap quilts. Sometimes jelly rolls work also. After 30 years of quilting, I have a lot of 1/2 used fat 1/4’s. LOL

    —Nancy Jo Marsden on February 15, 2017
  • I would have to say B, I have a fat quarter stash, (not huge) but may need to buy more to round out the colors. Love scrap quilts, but then I love all quilts!

    —Sandy B on February 15, 2017
  • I don’t have much of a stash so I am ‘C’.

    —Sandy K on February 15, 2017
  • b. fat quarters + extras from the quilt shop. Too OCD to just go scrappy at random.

    —Amy Cofer on February 15, 2017
  • I would choose B. I have a few fat quarters and yards to choose from then a quick visit to my local quilt shop to find coordinating prints. Love the Raise the Roof Quilt and would love to make it with one of the fabulous fat quarter selections!

    —Nancy G on February 15, 2017
  • I love Miss Rosie’s enthusiasm and love for life! I also LOVE Moda–the quality of the fabric, the designs and the colors are so amazing. Moda is my "go to" fabric choice whenever I am looking for inspiration–and I am never disappointed. I appreciate the "trueness" of the colors (is that a word?) and how they make a quilt "pop!" Thanks for this contest–would love to win!

    —Donna Timm on February 15, 2017
  • My answer is (a), but I am lucky enough to have a whole room full of fabric to shop in at home, but there is always the lure of a perfect addition just waiting at the quilt shop for me to find.

    —Sharon K on February 15, 2017
  • I have to use scraps now as we moved to a small town, not near a quilt store, so I will go to my scrap bin.

    —Betty on February 15, 2017
  • I’m more of #2. I dig through my stash and then always have to have something to add. I love scrappy quilts and get bored if there’s not a lot of fabrics in the mix. I’d love to win and use my stash to make one of the quilts in Miss Rosie’s book.

    —Sheila Kelly on February 15, 2017
  • One my most fun way to make a quilt is to choose 2 or 3 colors that I like together and have contrast. Then I grab many, many fabrics of each from my overabundant stash – all print scales, tints, etc. Then I cut the required pieces (like squares for making half square triangle blocks or logs for log cabins), throw them in different paper bags, and pull them out at random and sew them together. The secret is to have LOTS of different fabrics. Even ugly ones!

    So I think my answer is B, although I usually only need to go to the quilt shop for background or borders.

    I also have Spice of Life and have already bought Farmhouse Favorites.

    —Barbara Boyd on February 15, 2017
  • I have a huge stash and lots of precut fat quarters and strips so I have to say I head for my stash. I can almost always find what I need for a quilt, sometimes I need to purchase fabric for the back, but that’s all. I am actually trying to use up some of my stash this year (a sort of New Year’s resolution).

    —Patricia MacDonald on February 15, 2017
  • I love Miss Rosie’s quilts and the wonderful fabric bundles. I have an extensive stash so I have no problem starting a scrappy quilt.

    —Patricia D. Roberts on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my scrap bin and also to the fabric store to add.

    —Annette Forgie on February 15, 2017
  • I would have to choose ‘b’. I like to make scrappy quilts, especially when they are done. Sometimes it is hard for me to get started, but then look out.

    —Kimberly P on February 15, 2017
  • I have several fat quarter bundles that I plan to use in scrappy quilts. I will add to them some of my limited supply of scraps from other projects. i’m sure my scrap supply will grow as I complete more quilts.

    —Linda Enneking on February 15, 2017
  • I’m an A, I save every little piece.

    —Janna on February 15, 2017
  • Of course, B is the answer. How much fun is it to go through my treasure chest of fabrics – fat 1/4ths, odd cuts, 1/2 yd cuts, bits of fabric, etc. Gives me reason to head to local quilt shops to add to color piles that just lack enough to start.

    —Kathy waters on February 15, 2017
  • B! Always the scrap bins first, then the stash then the quilt store, because there is always something new that just begs to be used.

    —Jill on February 15, 2017
  • A. Scrappy quilts are my favorite. I start pulling fabrics from my stash that I think work well. I only buy fabric for a specific quilt when I have determined that I absolutely have to.

    —Linda Vargas on February 15, 2017
  • B I have lots of fat quarters but always need to add some to finish the color scheme I want.

    —Kathy Merris on February 15, 2017
  • I think really a combination of A and B, I have scraps and fat quarters but never seem to have the "perfect" color, so my brain says "you must go to store and by more". I really love the rainbow colors in bundle 1. Thanks for the chance to win. Love all the quilts shown, makes me want to run to my fabric and start pulling.

    —connie b on February 15, 2017
  • I would like A or 1. I don’t have a scrap stash but would definitely like to win this bundle to get me started and to make one of those lovely quilts.

    —Ruth Powell on February 15, 2017
  • I have plenty to work with!

    —Janice on February 15, 2017
  • I usually go between A and B. I head for my scraps first, then the FQ’s then I usually find myself at the store looking for just the right shade/color. As hard as I try to use what I have, I almost always end up looking for just one more fabric.

    —Deb W on February 15, 2017
  • I really love making scrap quilts – even if I decide to do a project from a kit or BOM, I always go through my charms, strips, & scraps to see what I can add/change to up the interest & uniqueness. Carrie’s tips are great – I especially like the idea that the "odd" edgy fabric that you’d really like to throw in a quilt maybe just needs an "odd" "friend or two" EXACTLY! Hope I win some of those pretty fabrics 😊

    —Paula Rooyakkers on February 15, 2017
  • I am an A – B. I have plenty of fabric to make scrap quilts, but I work at a quilt store so, I have to add a few new fabrics to update everything.

    Love your quilts.

    —Nancy Nelson on February 15, 2017
  • A- I go to my scrap bin- I also like to shop
    for a few new fabrics to compliment my stash!
    The new book is awesome!!!

    —Laura on February 15, 2017
  • I am a fabrcholic, so B, of course!

    —Jodi L Flanary on February 15, 2017
  • B! I love scrap quilts! What an awesome give away.

    —Rita Nichols on February 15, 2017
  • I would say I am a "B" that fills in with scraps. Love the book!

    —Donna Netoskie on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely "A". All the fabrics stacked in bookcases, under beds and on shelf in closet have pieces cut from them. This makes all fabric ‘scraps’. Note: I have been quilting for over 35 years so that is a lot of scraps but sooo much fun! Love Miss Rosie patterns.

    —Judy Gallman on February 15, 2017
  • I would say probably b. Even though I have been quilting for years, I never seem to have the right scraps and colors. I usually use a mixture of yardage and FQs to create a scrappy look. That book is incredible! I have always loved her style and color combos. I need to win this giveaway!

    —Sharon on February 15, 2017
  • It is "A" for me, with a little of "B" thrown in, because there always seems to be a color missing.

    —Kathy on February 15, 2017
  • I’m somewhere between A and B. I have lots of fat quarters, layer cakes, charm packs and jelly rolls but no good books that I can use them on. Miss Rosie’s book would be fantastic for my stash.

    —Julie Janitscheck on February 15, 2017
  • You don’t have my choice – new material!!! I am still too organized to do a true scrappy which is what I think material from my stash would give me. So B is the closest.

    —Martha Morgan on February 15, 2017
  • Answer B fits me best. I have followed Miss Rosie and Carrie for some time. I love her quilts and she inspires me to no end. I would love to win her fabric pack. Thanks

    —Bobette on February 15, 2017
  • I have a scrap bin ask,well as fat quarters. I just decide if I want a color scheme and pull from my bins. Pieces that are too small FOR ME to use get put in a bag and are donated to St. Vincent’s thrift shop. They take unwearable clothes and fabric scraps and bundle them. They then sell these. I feel it is a win-win.

    —Barb on February 15, 2017
  • I’m still building my scrap stash, but I love what Miss Rosie does with her scraps!

    alianora on February 15, 2017
  • I would go to my scrap bins….yes, more than one. I cut up leftover small pieces into strips and squares in a variety of sizes. One of my favorite quilts is a triple irish chain made entirely from my scraps! I love fat quarters too, and it would be so exciting to win one of the bundles and the book–it looks awesome!

    —Joana on February 15, 2017
  • I do a combination of a and b. I always love to use my scraps, but I love to mix in several pretty fat quarters too. My fat quarters are actually a big part of my scrap collection.

    —Ruthie on February 15, 2017
  • I have a room full of fabric bins, with many of them filled with scraps, so i check those out first, make a big mess and if i still feel i don’t have enough I go buy more!!! You can never have enough fabric!!! I sew love Miss Rosie’s Scrap Quilts and would totally love this book. Thanks for a chance to win.
    Carmen

    —Carmen Montmarquet on February 15, 2017
  • I fall more towards the C choice… However, I’m working on a stash.. it just isn’t a big variety YET.

    —Suzy on February 15, 2017
  • I would answer A. I first sort thru my stash bins, and then head to the store, if I need a few extra fillers.

    —Jeanette on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my scraps to make a scrappy quilt. My quilts tend to looks similar because I am using the same fabrics. I would enjoy sewing with those wonderful bundles.

    —Sue P on February 15, 2017
  • Miss Rosie is so very talented, I’m absolutely thrilled to see her release a new book. And beautiful fabric with Moda too!

    I’m sorta a blend between A & C. I have plenty of scrap fabric, but for balancing colors I tend to end up visiting a quilt shop to add to my stash, for making a better scrap quilt.

    QuiltShop Gal on February 15, 2017
  • Much of my fabric stash was dispersed when we downsized, so I’d have to go with C!

    —Sydnie Wauson on February 15, 2017
  • C. Do not have a big enough stash for a scrap quilt! Thanks for the chance at these beautiful fabrics!

    —Pam on February 15, 2017
  • I have a good stash, fat quarters and charms included but I have yet to make a scrappy quilt.

    —Lynda on February 15, 2017
  • Wish I had a closet but definitely work from various scrap bins and a large stash of precuts and fat quarters. Love Carrie’s approach and designs — one of the best. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Patricia Wiggs on February 15, 2017
  • My answer is most definitely A. I’ve made several quilts which led to lots of scraps. Why you might ask? Because I always buy enough fabric to make the project AND provide some nice leftovers. Can’t have one without the other, in my opinion. That’s part of what makes it so much fun.

    Cheryl on February 15, 2017
  • A! I don’t quite have a closet, but I have bins in various states of organization. I have 2 bins in shorter strips suitable for strings, one with cool colours and one with warm. I like to alternate blocks of cool and warm for contrast. Then there’s the neutrals – time to make another in browns and neutrals, because the bin is full. Then there’s the kiddie prints, and the soft florals. Migosh, I’d better get sewing scraps! Raise the Roof looks like a good candidate for lights and darks.

    —Carol on February 15, 2017
  • Wow, another wonderful book to add to my "want" list. These are my kind of quilts!

    I do have some scraps, but probably not enough to create such beautiful quilts.

    Thanks for showing me this book, and the opportunity to enter the draw.

    B from Canada

    —B from Canada on February 15, 2017
  • I start with my fat quarter stash and then head to my scrap stash. Miss Rosie’s quilts look like so much fun!

    —Kalen Hahn on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my scrap stash. It’s large, but lately I’ve noticed the pieces are getting smaller and smaller!

    —Ruth Newell on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a C. I love to quilt but I just started and my scrap stash is not that big yet. I love the rainbow colored fat quarters.

    —Silke Jung on February 15, 2017
  • When making a scrappy quilt I head to my stash of scraps, fat quarters and yardage first. If I don’t have enough of what I need for the look I am going for, I head to the quilt shop to buy what I need.

    —Lisa Long on February 15, 2017
  • I definitely head to the fabric bin. So much fabric, so little time to sew.

    —Suzanne on February 15, 2017
  • C) I don’t have a scrap stash yet, but I’m working on growing one.

    —Margery on February 15, 2017
  • I usually start with my fat quarters and then add to them if needed. Thanks for the chance to win the fabric and the awesome book!

    —Louise Grenell on February 15, 2017
  • Starting scrappy means heading for fat quarters and then back to the scraps once I know what way I am headed. I love the Quilts in this book!

    —Nyla-Jean on February 15, 2017
  • The Raise the Roof quilt is now on my to do list I’m an a b and always ready for a trip to the quilt shop.

    —Andrea on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my fabric pile and pull out possibilities. I did a vintage quilt that way. I guess I have old looking fabric 🙂

    —martha cook on February 15, 2017
  • I would say I’m an ‘A’. I can’t bear to throw away fabric. I tend to keep it sorted by size and sometimes by color too. My goal is to use all my fabric but scraps just seem to multiply. But the good part is "I love to make and give scrap quilts. They are so beautiful.

    Elaine La Force on February 15, 2017
  • With mountains of fat quarters, I tend to start there. But I could definitely use Miss Rosie’s beautiful designs, ideas and examples to boost my creativity, which is somewhat limited. I’m a newbie, but love love love quilting. That Raise the Roof one is my favorite!

    —Viv on February 15, 2017
  • I head to the stash as I consider all my fabric ready to become scrap quilt material. I just make piles that look pleasing and add a few uglies and brights to add interest. I LOVE scrap quilts.

    —Rose Haury on February 15, 2017
  • I’m kind of A+B, some scraps, fat quarters and a lot of yardage I have collected.

    —Janet Fletcher on February 15, 2017
  • I get out my scrap bins and grab and cut what I think works.

    —Shelby Harvey on February 15, 2017
  • I have plenty in my stash, but am always on the lookout for colors I am short of. I’m always open to help putting fabric mixes together.

    —Ruth B on February 15, 2017
  • A & B – I have a closetful of fabric. I have two huge piles of fat quarters – each close to a foot high and I have totes of smaller scraps. When I pull out a fabric for a scrap quilt,I cut pieces for 4 scrap quilts I am working on from that piece. Much easier to cut for 4 scrap quilts when I have a piece of fabric out for something.

    —Annie on February 15, 2017
  • My stash is first stop, sometimes that’s enough, since I’ve been collecting for a long time. But sometimes they just don’t play together well, so them it’s shopping to fill in the gaps

    —Ann Eldridge on February 15, 2017
  • B for me! I would go to the fat quarter section of my stash and begin there. Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Vicki Sprain on February 15, 2017
  • I head to the scrap bin first (answer B) first and then move on from there. Love the patterns in this book – especially Wayne and Gordy! Love the fabrics and the new book!

    —Barbara on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bin (plus my stash)! I have so many fabrics. But I love scrappy quilts!

    —Mary P. Taylor on February 15, 2017
  • I look at what I have and then go to the store to find some fabrics to add to it. Any excuse to buy more fabric!

    —Pat H on February 15, 2017
  • I have a small scrap stash, my quilting friend also has a small scrap stash, so when either of us decides to do something scrappy we get together and dump everything in the middle of the table. It’s a free for all as we dig through the pile looking for a new treasure. We have each made a couple of beautiful quilts this way.

    —Mary Barnhart on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my stash AND my scrap bin! I love scrappy quilts the most. I do try to cut my scraps down into useable sizes/shapes at the end of a cutting session to minimize the size of the pile, but it still seems to breed and grow regardless of what I do.

    —Susan B. on February 15, 2017
  • I do B….and I absolutely love this book. This is a definite buy 🙂 Thank you for a great giveaway.

    —Julie A. on February 15, 2017
  • C for me, although I am trying to build a bit of a stash currently!

    —Lori on February 15, 2017
  • I have a large stash and usually start there. If I think I need a few more for the project I then add from friends and family. It is great to be surrounded by other quilters who help you out in your time of need. I love the Miss Rosie patterns. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Ruth on February 15, 2017
  • A is my answer. Your quilts are beautiful!!

    —Debra White on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a C, I don’t have many fabrics in my stash. These fabrics are beautiful I love the colorful quilts.

    —Pat Wagle on February 15, 2017
  • I have more scraps than I will ever use, but I can always use more. I like A and B equally.

    —Judy Repp on February 15, 2017
  • I am mostly an "a" type of scrappy quilter. Then I’ll mix in some fat quarters and some yardage. Scrappy quilts are my favorite! This new book by Carrie looks great and it makes me want to dive in and start a new quilt!

    —Kaye M. on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely C !! The quilts in the preview video are absolutely gorgeous. I want to make all of them with Carrie’s bundles.

    —Kath S on February 15, 2017
  • Love these quilts. Winning the fabric would be the spur to get one made! Collection B is my inspiration.

    —Gloria Chandler on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my cabinet, some are fat quarters, some not….. There is quite a selection.

    —Michelle King on February 15, 2017
  • I have lots of scraps so that’s what I would use first. I love Miss Rosie’s books/patterns.

    —Jaylene Britt on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely (a), love working with scrap patterns. Have several of M’s Rosie’s books and patterns, so fun to make and give as gifts!

    —Catherine Stiele on February 15, 2017
  • I generally start with the FQ’s then gravitate to the the scrap bag, which I never seem to make a dent in! Love your new book!! Thanks for the giveaway

    —Terri on February 15, 2017
  • I try to use whatever is in my stash, but somehow there is usually a gap in the selection that only a few new pieces can fill! I love the Wayne and Gordie quilt! Excited about the new book and the chance to win!

    —Joyce on February 15, 2017
  • I would choose B. I love fat quarters. They are easy to pick up and have on hand. They are also easy to take a piece from and save the rest for another project. And they are certainly perfect for scrap quilts. I love all of these quilts in Miss Rosie’s Farmhouse Favorites. They are fun to look at and great inspiration to use up all my scraps 😀

    —Joy Meetis on February 15, 2017
  • B. I definitely head to my fat quarter selection and sometimes run out for more!!!! Thank you for the opportunity to possibly win. And to possibly win a copy of the book would be amazing!!!

    —Kim on February 15, 2017
  • I have a big scrap collection to choose from when making a new quilt, but who wouldn’t love more fabric. Thanks for the opportunity to win Miss Rosie’s new book and some gorgeous fat quarters.

    —Paula Bish on February 15, 2017
  • HI,I’m ‘A’ I head for my scrap collection! Thanks for the interview+giveaway too!

    —LINDA on February 15, 2017
  • I am an A/B. I shop my stash, then off to the quilt store for more. Hats off to Moda for their layer cake pattern papers!

    —Janet T on February 15, 2017
  • I love Miss Rosie quilt patterns! I would love to win a group of fabrics that she has selected and her new book. I do enjoying knowing I have made a few of the quilts in the book, but would like to make a couple more!

    —Linda Ferguson on February 15, 2017
  • I have to say A and B. Nothing I love more than taking bits of my stash and heading to the quilt shop to look at new things. These quilts are so beautiful and inspiring. Thanks for the chance to get in on this fun contest.

    —Susan Lane on February 15, 2017
  • I’m an A. I love scraps so much! Each slightly tattered piece holds a memory.

    Lisa on February 15, 2017
  • I have bins of scraps and just grab fabrics from them, not really paying much attention to prints. I like really scrappy! Makes me feel good to use smaller pieces that some people would throw away. I have been known to go threw the trash when we have a sew day.

    —Rosemary Caldwell on February 15, 2017
  • There is nothing nicer than a scrap quilt. I start mine with a dive into my color-sorted scrap bins and then move ti my fat quarters. Lots of inspiration in this new book.

    —Colleen on February 15, 2017
  • I would have to go with B. Love scrappies but like a more controled scrappie, so fat quarters seem to work best for me. Looks like a great book, will have to put it on my list!

    —Sue on February 15, 2017
  • I am A. For years whenever I am at a fabric store I look at the remnant’s bin and almost always go home with several. So I have a lot of bits and pieces of a lot of different fabric’s!!

    —Diane Metheny on February 15, 2017
  • Such beautiful quilts and Moda fabrics for the giveaway! The quilts are so comfy looking and I enjoy working with Moda fabrics. Love the quality. The book would be a delight to have to read and to find a special quilt to make.
    Carol on February 15, 2017

    —Carol on February 15, 2017
  • a) Start with scraps, fat quarters, and the stash, then the quilt store. I really like the quilts in Miss Rosie’s new book.

    —jan on February 15, 2017
  • It is always about the stash for a scrap quilt!

    —Marilyn Rich on February 15, 2017
  • I try to use some scraps, and use some fat quarters to get the right colors sometimes. I love scrappy quilts. Love the giveaway, thank you!

    —Karen H. on February 15, 2017
  • A for sure! My stash has been all hand me downs from grandmother, aunt and friends.

    —Heather Hedrick on February 15, 2017
  • Those are my kinda quilts! I have lots of fabric but it doesn’t stop me from buying
    more! I head to the stash first and carry on from there, so I guess A is my pick.
    Thank you for these give a ways.

    Mayme on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a bit of both A and B – I have quite a stash of scraps, but often find they don’t all work together, which brings me to stop by our local fabric shop to pick up a few fat quarters to add to the mix. Love your book – looks like a good one to read as well as quilt with!

    —Diana in Wisconsin on February 15, 2017
  • Been saving my scraps for a while. Really anxious to start a scrappy quilt. Like the ones in the book.

    —Nicole on February 15, 2017
  • b) I head for my fat quarters—and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more.
    You can never have enough fat quarters to choose from!

    —Pattilee Michaud on February 15, 2017
  • B. I always seem to need a little something extra. Although, I am sure it could be said that I have more than enough to choose from already. I am learning to be comfortable with sewing scrappy. I usually go with "controlled scrappy". Thank you for the giveaway opportunity, the book has a lot of fun possibilities for using up my stash.

    —Deborah B. on February 15, 2017
  • Yes!

    I actually choose scraps for most of my quilts from my stash but always end up augmenting my scraps with fat quarters and yardage which then perpetuates my scrap stash

    —Sue on February 15, 2017
  • I’m "a". Love your quilts

    —Kathy Chapman on February 15, 2017
  • I would head to my fat quarter stash and get more from my local quilt shop! Variety is the spice of life when a quilt is involved!

    —Susan Stanton on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my stash, but usually have to visit a quilt shop to get more of a few colors. I can see this book would be very helpful guiding me through my projects. And either of the pack of fabrics would be very much appreciated!

    —Jean Greene on February 15, 2017
  • A would be my answer. I love scrap quilts, and the more scraps I have to work with, the better. Sometimes, I just get out my scraps and play with them, it’s so much fun.

    —Heartsdesire on February 15, 2017
  • a) I head to my scrap bin—which is actually a closet. I have more than enough to work with!

    But that doesn’t mean I don’t want more!

    These are absolutely beautiful!

    —Brenda Hulsey on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my stash first, then show what I’ve found to the ladies in my quilting group and turn them loose in their own stashes. We always come up with wonderful creations. Community quilting is the best.

    —Ramona Sampayan on February 15, 2017
  • I guess I’m closest to being a B person although my FQ assortment is all over the map in terms of style and color such that I can’t seem to get the fabrics to play well together. It’s my fault when I just buy one or two FQs without thinking of how they would fit in with what I already have.

    I love the Wayne and Gordy quilt. That would be a fun one to work on. Thanks for the chance to win one of the bundles.

    —Ann D on February 15, 2017
  • I USE FAT QUARTERS AND PROBABLY WOULD PICK UP A FEW MORE TO GO WITH THE ONES I HAVE. THANKS FOR THE CHANCE TO WIN SOME MORE AND A NEW BOOK ALSO.

    —Mindy Wolfe on February 15, 2017
  • I’m definitely a closet forager. And I supplement with a trip to the fabric shop if necessary. Sometimes I think I like looking at my fabrics as much as I enjoy sewing with them.

    —Kiki Kossow on February 15, 2017
  • a) I have so many scraps in my bin I can easily made all the quilts in the book from it;-)

    —Hildy on February 15, 2017
  • I generally try to not pick just one line. I feel that you always need to cross lines in a scrappy quilt. I feel close to my ancestors when I’m working on one knowing that was how many beautiful keepsakes were made! I LOVE quilting!!

    —Deena DeWall on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my fat quarters and if I can’t convince myself that the choices I have are enough, I search online quilt shops for inspiration and maybe a few new purchases.

    —Liz F. on February 15, 2017
  • B. I go to my piles of fat quarters. The smaller scraps always get thrown in a bin for my grandchildren to create with. Love Carrie Nelson’s quilts!

    —Mary on February 15, 2017
  • Well… I head for my scrap bins which, alas, are not conveniently located in a closet because I don’t have that much closet space. mine are in suitcases and bins in storage. So a trip to the storage unit or maybe the garage which also has some. Drag a couple of bins home and spread out the fabric to make selections. This works well for art quilts and truly scrappy blocks, but I do love a set of well coordinated fabrics!

    —Jane on February 15, 2017
  • c) I don’t have a scrap stash yet, but Miss Rosie’s quilts are inspiring me to start one!

    —Julie on February 15, 2017
  • I use what ever color say – USE ME! or if I am making it for someone else then i ask for their favorite colors and use them. Scrap quilts are the best, maybe that is why we always need to run over to the fabric store and pick up a few more fat quarters.

    —Connie on February 15, 2017
  • I use ‘A’. I head for my bin of scraps of fabrics, which is not that extensive. However, I am not typically overjoyed with the results and wish I had started with a set of fabric pieces such as available in fat quarter bundles – for they certainly coordinate better then my choices of fabric pieces. It would be so much more satisfying to finish with a scrappy that looks like like coordinated scraps. Help from the book would be wonderful.

    —Lorea Boogerman on February 15, 2017
  • A- scraps and fat quarters, and more!

    —Karen on February 15, 2017
  • I would be C, because I am more of a book-aholic.

    —Angie Little on February 15, 2017
  • I would do B, I’ve started the Raise Roof Quilt!! Love it!! I doing it in Fall colors,
    Oranges, greens, goldens, prints, solids, every fall color you could imagine & of course
    Creams, printed & solids. It is going to be absolutely beautiful! Love scrapping quilts!💜
    Thanks for giving us an opportunity to win the gorgeous fabric & your book!!

    —catherine cheshire on February 15, 2017
  • I am a combination of A and B. A certain fabric to go with your stash is always missing .

    —Joyce Dennie on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap baskets first and then if I need something else, I trade with friends. I seem to like my scrap quilts best when I have combined my fabric with others. I love the fabrics that Carrie has donated and love the quilts that are shown here. Scrap quilts are the best!

    Sandy on February 15, 2017
  • I would have to choose C. I have very little scraps.

    —Debbie Chenoweth on February 15, 2017
  • I have multiple scrap bins that are sorted by colors and then I have bags, containers, boxes and what have yous of other scraps that I can’t stand to throw out because I have loved using them. Thank you for the giveaway.

    —Rochelle Summers on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my stash and start but it seems there is always a trip to add a little something from one of the quilt shops; fabric needs company. I love these quilts!

    —Barb Jenson on February 15, 2017
  • I have to admit that I like to shop for fabrics that are already coordinated by a line at the quilt store. That is a jumping off spot for scrappy quilts and then I add fabrics from my big stash.

    —Sharron Meyer on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely (A) — I have lots and lots of scraps, and love trying to use them before buying more fabric!

    —Janet D. on February 15, 2017
  • My stash isn’t large enough so I would have to visit my Quilt Shop!

    elr on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my fat quarters—and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more.

    —Donna Desruisseaux on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my stash, and then look at my fat quarters!

    —Virginia Marshall on February 15, 2017
  • I’m an ‘A’ quilter. Head to my closet & storage bins to dig out left overs from projects & possibly add a fat quarter or two to the mix. Love the quilts in this book!

    —Carol Gearey on February 15, 2017
  • I would choose A. I have quite the fabric stash to choose from, but always looking to add to it! I have several books by Miss Rosie’s Quilt- I am drawn to the scrappiness of Carries quilts, right up my alley. I love both of the bundles shown.

    —Tonya Hartnell on February 15, 2017
  • I am A. When I am working on a specialty quilt, I save all my cut offs, etc. and blend it with one or two previous quilt leftovers and hooray, there is a new scrappy quilt.

    —Anna Ihrig on February 15, 2017
  • I do a little of A & B plus my stash if needed. A last resort is going to the quilt shop as I am in use up mode.

    —Peggy on February 15, 2017
  • I head to the scrap basket and make myself "use it all". You have to add the uglies, otherwise the nicer fabrics don’t have anything to play off of. I don’t focus on the small unit right in front of me that doesn’t seem to be working, or stand on its own, because once all the units are sewn together as a whole, the end product is wonderful. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Lill on February 15, 2017
  • I usually start with a fat quarter bundle, check out my stash for fabrics that will work with it, and then head to the fabric store.

    —Mary Beth McKelvey on February 15, 2017
  • SCRAP QUILTS are my favorites & I like lots of different prints. I head to my drawers of small fabric pieces & start with one piece I really love – then I start pulling out every fabric that has "those colors" – next I add a few odd colored ones just to throw off too much matchy – matchy! I throw them all on the floor & wait until some of them speak to me & then the fun begins!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win some of this glorious fabric…..Sonja

    —sonja on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my closet. Floor to ceiling shelving mostly sorted by colour…and then there are baskets and drawers too!! I would love to win bundle #1.

    —Margaret Hynes on February 15, 2017
  • I’ve just begun a scrap stash and draw in my fat quarters to fill in.

    —Rosemary on February 15, 2017
  • I have made a few scrap quilts using my stash of scraps. Now, I am leaning towards making a scrap quilt using a fabric bundle. I love fat quarters and I love Carrie’s patterns and Moda fabrics. I just made a baby quilt using a charm pack and a Scnibbles pattern. I would be over joyed to win a bundle and Carrie’s new book.

    —Mary on February 15, 2017
  • Mostly A. I have plenty of scraps and pick from them first, but I like lots of variety so I usually search my stash as well and cut some pieces from that to get a good assortment. Scrappy quilts are a particular favorite of mine.

    —Lisa Marie on February 15, 2017
  • Mostly B, with A instead of a trip to the store. Carrie taught one of the first quilt workshops I ever attended. She made it fun and informative. Love the look of her quilts.

    —Mona on February 15, 2017
  • I am a A. I save all of my scraps, plus friends and quilt guild members save their scraps for me. I make lots of Scrap Quilts for friends, family and for Charity.

    —Dianne Skinner on February 15, 2017
  • I have a fabric stash that is filling my closet…I am trying to get rid of the scraps by making some scrappy quilts. I’m sewing as fast as I can.

    —Jackie Wisherd on February 15, 2017
  • for Scrappy quilts I first look to see what fat quarters I have on hand, then I check my scrap buckets and pull sample from each spot. Next I make a trip to the local quilt store (not JoAnn’s) bringing my samples with me. The ladies there are always great to help me pick out something that works well that I may never have thought of. Some of my quilts are lap size, others are bed quilts. But I truly love scrap quilts instead of one planned out and coordinated in every way.

    —Linda Schipper-Jarnecke on February 15, 2017
  • I’ve never met a Carrie Nelson quilt I didn’t love! I would start with A – I have a substantial stash of scraps, but would also entertain going to fat quarters and supplementing from the fabric store for more variety if needed. Who doesn’t like to shop for fabric?!?

    —Mary D on February 15, 2017
  • a) I head to my scrap bin—which is actually a closet. I have more than enough to work with! (I would really like to win a copy of this book) Thanks so much!

    Diane Dunder on February 15, 2017
  • I am always hesitant to start when I look at my scrap stockpile but once I start picking fabrics and colors I end up with "the more the merrier" and enough for a huge quilt.

    —Freda on February 15, 2017
  • I have a closet full of stash, so I go there first, but sometimes I know what I’m looking for and if my closet doesn’t have it, I head to the quilt shop. Love Miss Rosie’s everything!!! Her designs are awesome. 🙂

    Diane Nagle on February 15, 2017
  • I am a combo of A and B, don’t have a very large stash so I do a little of both. Both of these bundles are lovely. Thanks

    —Etta F on February 15, 2017
  • I absolutely go to my fat quarter stash, decide I can’t bear to cut anything and run to the quilt
    store for what I need. Hahahhah because we are all fabric collectors at heart, aren’t we? 😜

    —Sharon on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my scrap bin. I often have to get extra fat quarters, so I guess the answer is both A and B. Thanks for the chance on this awesome giveaway!

    —Jill on February 15, 2017
  • I would have to say A. I have tons of scraps just waiting to be used. I love scrappy quilts and Carrie’s book looks wonderful. The bundle #1 has such cute fabrics!

    —Susan Griffith on February 15, 2017
  • I am a B person, I tend to have a somewhat coordinated stash of fat quarters. Working on the scraps but have difficulty seeing them all working together, they tend to fight with each other. It makes a real mess in the sewing area.

    —Rita S on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a brand new quilter. I started 3 years ago at age 71. I’ve pretty much had to teach myself, with a few on-line classes. When I need fabric for a project, I first check my stash (which is organized by colors and/or type). Then if I do not have what I need, I buy the extra to finish the project. I’m partially handicapped and don’t drive so I depend on the Internet quilt shops for my extra fabrics.

    —Jeanne W. Pittman on February 15, 2017
  • B. I head for my fat quarters and charm packs. Love this book! So many quilts I want to make.

    —Donna U on February 15, 2017
  • I won a wonderful stash of fat quarters, jelly rolls and 1 yd pieces and have only made a dent in that stash so far. So, I am heading for my winnings when I make a scrappy quilt. It would be great to win a book with patterns using all those goodies in my stash! And the fabric would be a bonus!

    —Jacqueline Gould on February 15, 2017
  • Hi thank you for this article 🙂
    I am just getting into quilting so I have no stash. I love going to the fabric stores and looking online until I see something that jumps out at me and then ĺook for complimentary fabrics. I am so excited about this new hobby and everyone is so friendly and helpful.

    —Cathy Rae Warriner on February 15, 2017
  • a)stash. No shortage. I love her tips. I want to make the Wayne and Gordy.

    —Karen on February 15, 2017
  • Well I don’t have a closet full of scraps, but I have a begining of one!I love Miss Rosie’s quilts!

    —Kim Hamilton on February 15, 2017
  • A!!! I have lots of scraps and fat quarters. Love the look of scrap quilts. One of my favorites is one I named "Fond Memories of Old Quilts and Little Girls Dresses". Made with leftovers from many prior projects.

    Virginia Molamphy on February 15, 2017
  • Love searching through my scraps, and adding to them with fabrics from the local quilt store. Best of both worlds! Miss Rosie has an amazing color sense!

    —Dixie on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely B. I always try to use what I have on hand but can’t resist checking out the quilt shops before I make my final fabric decisions.

    —Diane on February 15, 2017
  • I would run to the quilt shop to buy more!

    —Jolene on February 15, 2017

    —MS Barb on February 15, 2017
  • A–I save my scraps! THANKS for a nice Giveaway!

    —MS Barb on February 15, 2017
  • Usually b. I always check my scraps & then add bigger bits fr the quilt store to go with it. Love Rosie’s new book!!

    —Pam on February 15, 2017
  • I have a few scraps but never seem to have exactly what I need so have to make a trip to the fabric store. Miss Rosie’s quilts are so inspiring. I have been sewing for years but am a novice at making quilts. I can really use help with choosing fabric.

    —Pat Bumelis on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my fat quarters,Would love to win this wonderful book and fabrics.

    —Felicia Siford on February 15, 2017
  • Her fabrics are so yummy!!! I would use them all.
    My Golden "Montana" passed away last year at the age of 15. Getting a new puppy this Spring, can’t wait to have him keep me company while sewing!

    —Debbie KIRSCHT on February 15, 2017
  • B — I love fat quarters and have a lot, but I always seem to need more. These quilts are spectacular — would love to win!

  • Definitely an "A", but this by no means that I don’t HAVE to run to the quilt store to get more fabric. Awesome book, and love the selection of quilts.

    —Shirley on February 15, 2017
  • Oh, my goodness! The quilts in that book are beautiful! I love scrap quilts. I have lots of "scraps" on hand but I need help putting them together successfully.
    I would love to win that book!

    —Barbara on February 15, 2017
  • I’m in the A category, but I almost always need more neutral background. So a trip to the quilt store is a necessity.

    —Sandy May on February 15, 2017
  • b) of course! I have bins of fabrics – but it never seems to be exactly what I want based on the awesome samples they make of their quilts.

    —Lynnda S. on February 15, 2017
  • I’m rather new to quilting so I don’t have a scrap stash yet, but Miss Rosie’s quilts are inspiring me to start one!

    Sophie on February 15, 2017
  • I am an A person as most of my quilts can be called scrappy quilts.

    —Elilzabeth Olson on February 15, 2017
  • I am b) o maybe a combo between a) and b). I’m a hopeless fabric collector! While I do usually have plenty to choose from in my scrap bins and fat quarter bins I will never rule out running by my quilt shop, just in case there’s something I can’t live without for this project. Or maybe for a new project I haven’t thought of yet!

    —Barbara on February 15, 2017
  • A combination of A & B. Love the quilts in the new book

    —Jennifer Nicklas on February 15, 2017
  • I am in the A category. I wonder though if the pieces will be big enough to work in a pattern.

    —Kathy h on February 15, 2017
  • I am in the A category. I will NEVER run out of scraps because everytime I take a workshop, I end up with more of them.

    —Liz Adams on February 15, 2017
  • It depends. Sometimes I grab my scraps that I’ve picked up at my local quilt shop or, if I’m making something larger or with a more controlled palette, I’ll do fat quarters. Shopping frequently comes into it since it tends to inspire me or freshen up what I already have.

    —Barb on February 15, 2017
  • I am in category A. In fact I have been on a scrap mission the last month. I decided to cut my screps into useable sizes. I have selected three scrap patterns to cut for. I "need" some new scraps to add to mine

    —Jeanne on February 15, 2017
  • I head straight for my fat quarters and then make a run to the fabric store for what I still need!
    Absolutely love this book!

    —Rynetta Coetzee on February 15, 2017
  • I love scrappy quilts! I sew for charity a lot with my guild, so I have tons of scraps to choose from. When I need something else, I head to yardage in my stash. On occasion, I may have to run to the quilt shop for something specific to spice it up, like a great yellow or red. Plus, every month or so, I have to run to the local shop to replenish background neutrals, stripes or just to see what’s new.

    —Sandy B on February 15, 2017
  • I’m relatively new to quilting. I’m taking classes at the Temecula Quilt Company, which concentrates on Civil War quilts. So, I’m learning new techniques each week, and adding to my "stash". I would love to add your book and fabrics to my new passion.

    Sandra Rosier on February 15, 2017
  • I’m in the A spot. I usually just need some background. Love that fabric.

    —Chris on February 15, 2017
  • I’m relatively new to the world of quilting. I’m taking classes at the Temecula Quilt Company, which specializes in Civil War quilts and fabrics. I have a small stash and would love to add your fabrics and book to my new passion. It’s exciting to see it all come together. Thank you.

    Sandra Rosier on February 15, 2017
  • b) I head for my fat quarters—and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more. I love scrappy quilts!!

    —Diana Salmon on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bin—which is actually a closet. I have more than enough to work with!
    This looks like an awesome book, would love to win it 🙂

    —Rose on February 15, 2017
  • A little of all of the options, a,b &c. 🙂

    Nita on February 15, 2017
  • I have lots of fabric in my cupboards, but nothing really goes to together, so I head to my scraps from previous quilts, that is why I would really love to win the fabric, it would be wonderful to actually make somthing with fabrics that actually go together. I am at a time in my life where I will not love long enough to sew all of my fabrics, so a corodinated quilt would be great.

    —Karen George on February 15, 2017
  • a) Boxes and boxes of scraps for art quilts and quilts.

    —Marlene S on February 15, 2017
  • I have two ways…if it is a quilt along, I usually go for my scrap bins. If it is a whole quilt up front, I use fat quarters and scraps ;o).. LOVE this book and fabrics for the giveaway!!!

    —Kristie Michalowski on February 15, 2017
  • I first decide if the pattern will work with Red,white &blue as i do quilts for the "America Hero Quilt Project. These star quilts are perfect.
    Then i head to my stash. IF I need to & of course I will
    I head to my favorite quilt shop.

    —Darlene Joyner on February 15, 2017
  • One can never have too many fat quarters, so I look over my fat quarters and then head over to the quilt shop for more!

    —Madeline on February 15, 2017
  • I would have to say category A, however I usually head to the quilt shop to find the perfect piece to add some jazz.

    —Rebecca on February 15, 2017
  • I decide which main colors I want and then pull those colors out of my color coordinating scrap bags.

    —Debbie Eide on February 15, 2017
  • My stash of course! but within colorways and I always look for fat quarters and precuts on sale (gotta love Craftsy! their clearance is the best!) so I generally at least have some that coordinate, and add in from the stash. I admit to having fabrics back to when I sewed my own clothes in high school.. got to beware of the poly cotton blends! and I am in agreement about not having the neutrals I need. LOVE her patriotic colors! I have been collecting for a purpose…

    —Sharon Schipper on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely A, but love the quilts in her book, so would love to make some of them to reduce the stash! Thanks for the ideas and giveaway!

    —Judy Purdy on February 15, 2017
  • "A" All the way. But I still find an excuse to go to the Quilt store!

    —Vickey on February 15, 2017
  • I think "B" describes me.

    —Linda Bakuska on February 15, 2017
  • As a pretty new quilter, I don’t have much of a scrap stash yet. I have admired and drooled over Miss Rosie’s quilts for awhile and think it is time to start one!

    —Angelia L. on February 15, 2017
  • I usually head for my stash – combination of scraps and fat quarters. I have more than enough to work with!

    Thanks for the chance to win a book and fat quarters!

    —Karen N on February 15, 2017
  • I would choose B–I don’t necessarily stick with fat quarters, but go to the fabric shop to choose cuts of suitable fabric for my project of the moment.

    —B J Kinney on February 15, 2017
  • I have started cutting my fabric into 2 1/2 inch strips, 5″ squares, and layer cakes. So I pull those boxes out and pull from them. Then I can see what other colors I need to make the colors pop. Of course, I can’t resist picking up more fabric at the quilt store.

    —Marie Walton on February 15, 2017
  • I love scrap quilts, not sure I do it right, but I have liked the results. 1st one was cutting all my scraps into 4″ squares and putting them together, 2nd was sewing all my strips together and cutting them into blocks. Need new ideas and I would love to have this book to help me.

    —Donna on February 15, 2017
  • I am an A. I "collect" fabrics in the same palette so I can usually find what I need in my stash. But…one can always use more! Love Rosie’s books and patterns.

    —Bette on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely B! I get excitied about using some of my stash and start pulling things out. Then I decide what I may be missing for the perfect combination and head to the store. After all, if I’m using some of my stash, I have some room for new – right? 😉

    —Pam H on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my scrap bin first! But usually I do just "have" to shop for more fabric, whether it be fat quarters or yardage. Any little excuse to go to the quilt shop!

    —Kathy G. on February 15, 2017
  • I would choose A. Although I always run to the quilt store to add more fabrics. Love the book. Thanks for the chance to win the fat quarters and the book

    —Johnnie McCallum on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a b. Love my fat quarters, but there is always room for more! So many pretty fabrics, so much to do! #LetsQuilt #ModaFabrics

    —Carol on February 15, 2017
  • I’ve never made a scrap quilt before even tho I have an abundance of scraps. The quilts in this book sure make me wonder why I haven’t tried scrap quilting before. Thanks for such wonderful give-aways.

    —Vickie Keith on February 15, 2017
  • I start with my stash but frequently will buy fat quarters or yardage to
    finish it out the way I want it! Love those fabrics and the quilts from the book look great !

    —Nancy C on February 15, 2017
  • I am a lucky (a), I’ve accumulated tons of scraps in the last 20 some years, I can usually find what I need for a quilt but its always fun to buy more fabric to throw in the mix.

    —Sue Cahill on February 15, 2017
  • I have a closet full of scraps and stash and love going through it for inspiration. I have made several of your quilts and look forward to more beautiful patterns. Love, love, love the farmhouse theme/look as we have lived on our farm for 42 years. Thanks for making quilting more than just a hobby.

    —Mary Jo Fehr on February 15, 2017
  • I don’t have a scrap stash yet, but Miss Rosie’s quilts are inspiring me to start one!

    —Pat on February 15, 2017
  • the quilt tops I’ve completed were made with fabric I purchased but my next ones will be all from my scrap bin.

    —Judith Martinez on February 15, 2017
  • I love all scrap quilts and have a stash. But I always enjoy a trip to the quilt shop for more fat quarters.

    —Chris Rose on February 15, 2017
  • A) I have plenty of fabric…but who can resist buying more for a special project! I love the new fabric and the quilts in Carrie’s new book.

    —JudyMaggio on February 15, 2017
  • A & B…..Love the Raise the Roof quilt.

    —Diane on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my fat quarters and then zoom by a fabric shop for some more. Thanks for this wonderful giveaway.

    —Karen Hootman on February 15, 2017
  • I have tons of fat quarters and tons of scraps, so I would be a combination of A and B. I love the Moda blog that Carrie does, love her patterns and the new book and gorgeous Moda fabrics!

    —Lisa on February 15, 2017
  • I love, love, love Miss Rosie’s quilts. The pictures of her beautiful quilts make me want to make each and every one starting now!

    Myra Katz on February 15, 2017
  • I would say I am an "A"….I head to my scrap bin!

    —Marianne on February 15, 2017
  • Both A & B. Depending on the pattern, I check my scraps, fat quarters, and then the quilt store if I’m not satisfied with what I’ve found at home. Great book, Carrie.

    —Virginia in AK on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely head for my FAT QUARTERS…….they work so good with patchwork!

    —Carol Jiles-Davis on February 15, 2017
  • B) Me dirijo a mis cuartos de grasa y podría ampliar por la tienda de edredones para unos pocos más. El libro es precioso, me encanta.

    Translation: I head to my fat quarters and could zoom through the quilt shop for a few more. The book is beautiful, I love it.

    —Margarita on February 15, 2017
  • I just love to use as many different fabrics as I can, and whatever mood I’m in, I just grab from that "pile"!

    —DMC on February 15, 2017
  • I use my own fabrics and scraps and fill in with fat quarters if necessary. I have mostly batiks and hand dyes so I usually have a variety of colors and patterns to use.

    —Ann Rowland on February 15, 2017
  • Do a lot of Celtic quilting, but have a lot of scraps from that which I make quilts for my family & friends,also many table runners to try out patterns.

    —Marilyn Haug on February 15, 2017
  • "B" is my answer. These quilts are comfy and serene coming from a city girl.

    —Denise on February 15, 2017
  • Fairly new to quilting – don’t have much scrap collection yet so I have been buying fabric for each new quilt. Just finished one project and have 5 on hand to quilt. What fun!

    —Pam on February 15, 2017
  • I’m an A! It’s no longer fitting in my closet and I have shelves to install on my wall! I can’t open my cliset anymore from the stash stacked on the floor in front of my closet. Confession is good…think I need to visit my LQS, hahaha.

    —Melody Lutz on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely "b" for me! I have a huge stash, but always need to see what is at my local quilt store.

    —Kathy Rexach on February 15, 2017
  • I usually head to my fat quarters, but scraps too (I definitely have enough!)!!

    —Amy P. on February 15, 2017
  • c) I don’t have a scrap stash yet, but Miss Rosie’s quilts are inspiring me to start one!

    —Cathy on February 15, 2017
  • I will have to say I’m somewhere between A and B. While I do have some scraps, I always need to get more of something to go with them or with my fat quarters. Love these bundles and those stars!

    —Diana DeWitt on February 15, 2017
  • I’m A, B, and C. I like the scrappy look but try to coordinate the colours somewhat.

    Judy A on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my scraps. Of course I usually need a few new ones too.

    —Judy Smith on February 15, 2017
  • I love all quilts, but scrappy is where we all find our inner beauty.

    —Loreen Y Moore on February 15, 2017
  • I start with my scrap basket, then add in from my stash. I’ve recently completed 3 quilt tops using 2.5-inch squares from a guild exchange–and I still have half a bin of those squares to use up!

    —jill ellis on February 15, 2017
  • I usually have enough in my scrap bin to do more than one scrap quilt!

    —Pat on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a B person. I have a pretty big stash but like to add some New fabrics into the mix. I love scrappy quilts.

    —Polly Blank on February 15, 2017
  • Most definitely "A" for me, but I won’t rule out an occasional stop at the quilt shop. I’m really trying to use up more of my stash first! SO HAPPY to see Carrie’s new book out and can’t wait to see more of it, she is one of my favorite designers EVER!! Thanks for the great giveaway!

    —TxQuilter on February 15, 2017
  • oh, A for sure! I started swapping 5 inch squares back in the days of "Nickel Quilts" and I kept all the extra pieces. So I have a lot of rectangles that are anywhere from 1 1/2 to 4 1/2 inches by 5 inches that are left from cutting nickels out of yardage. After that, I started cutting the scraps left from other quilts into "useful" sizes – like strips and squares. I am trying to use up some of those scraps, so I need this book!

    Barbara Johnson on February 15, 2017
  • I would be in the A category. I am not a great quilter, but I love doing it.

    —Karen Scholet on February 15, 2017
  • Indeed, I would go to my scrap bin (which is actually my closet in my sewing room). I have made a few scrap quilts before but would really like some new ideas for more of them. Sometimes my scraps get to be overwhelming. I think this book might be ideal. Thanks.

    —Rosalie J Knoll on February 15, 2017
  • My answer is A. I have been in quilt shops that have LESS fabric than I do!

    —Cathy on February 15, 2017
  • Most definitely A. More than one person should have!

    —Lenny Truitt on February 15, 2017
  • "A" would be the closest. I would use my scraps, but I might still wander to the LQS to find a piece to add to it.

    —Edith Gorzo on February 15, 2017
  • I’d have to go with "c" as I don’t yet have enough scraps to make a whole quilt. These are all beautiful and it would be fun to try them, even if it’s not from scraps!

    —Linda M on February 15, 2017
  • A & B – I try to reduce my scraps but you can never have enough fat quarters so I also head to the quilt store for more.

    —Mary Finch on February 15, 2017
  • Out of the choices, it is "I head to my scrap bin—which is actually a closet. I have more than enough to work with!" I really call it my sewing room …. with lots of boxes. But I always have to run to the quilt store for one or two more fabrics because we always need more!

    —Vicky on February 15, 2017
  • I’m in the B group, any excuse to hit the quilt shops is a fun time for me!

    —Roxie on February 15, 2017
  • I just dive into the stash. If it feels right, in it goes. I try not to fuss too much and like the odd ones. Reminds me of my friends….

    —Patricia Hersl on February 15, 2017
  • b) I head for my fat quarters—and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more.
    I always need to stop by a quilt shop to add to my stash as one can NEVER have enough.
    Thanks!

    —Jane Beinke on February 15, 2017
  • I love fabric. I would choose B, but when starting a scrappy one I seem to start with fat quarters to get color values and families then go to scraps to add variety, then to my stash for larger pieces for back ground and something to make everything pop. I look at them passing by 2 to 3 times a day pulling favorites to the top till I have 10 to 15 pieces with background and pop color. Usually somewhere in picking favorites there is always a missing value and off to the quilt store I go. Thank goodness I still have room on my shelves for more stash.

    —Colleen S on February 15, 2017
  • My answer is definitely A! I have lots of fabrics to choose from when planning a new project. But of course I could always use more…and more.

    —Jacque Wright on February 15, 2017
  • I’ve always loved the Wayne and Gordy quilt! For scrappy quilts, I usually go to my stash first but almost always end up shopping for a few more.

    —Katherine on February 15, 2017
  • I usually head for my fat quarters and try to use up as much as I can. Then I can buy more!

    —Marie on February 15, 2017
  • I love scrappy quilts – I head to my stash of scraps….BUT I have to buy more FQ to add some new spice and flavor. I want my scrappy quilts to look different from the last one I did so I HAVE to add new fabrics.

    —Deborah on February 15, 2017
  • I look at my fat quarters, at all of the fabric folded on the shelves, and I also check the boxes of strips that were previously cut from scraps! I LOVE scrap quilts!

    —Elizabeth McDonald on February 15, 2017
  • A. I try to use up my scraps. It’s fun to see them mixed together and I feel good using my scraps.

    —Carol Broughton on February 15, 2017
  • I must be a C. Being somewhat a newbie, I try to read all I can to teach myself. YouTubes are wonderful and I have made several basic quilts watching them. Would love to have a copy of your book, but finances are very thin. Thank you for your postings.

    —Pat Morton on February 15, 2017
  • My scrap quilt method is a mixture of a and B. If I don’t have enough scraps then the hat fat quarters will fill in for me .
    Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    —Cathie D on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a C. I haven’t made enough quilts to have many scraps, but I’ve started to save so that I can make a "scrappy" quilt! I love the look of Miss Rosie’s quilts.

    —Anne Rhodes on February 15, 2017
  • I choose "b" — start with what I have but add to it as necessary. It’s a lovely book. I love the "farmhouse" concept since I live in one.

    Kathy Warnock on February 15, 2017
  • Sometimes randomly, sometimes purposefully
    . Scrap quilts are my favorite.

    —Edye Cameron McMillen on February 15, 2017
  • b-I’m such a fat quarter nut that it’s the first place I go and start making my color combinations. That is always the most fun just playing around with different ways of putting them together and then I can supplement them with what I think is missing.

    —Janet Brown on February 15, 2017
  • I would like to say (a) but I seem to do (b) too… I can never seem to find exactly what I want in my stash… So I keep adding to it..and adding to it…

    I love these quilts…Hope I win!!!…

    Thank you for all the hard work you do!!

    —dale on February 15, 2017
  • I have a big scrap bin because my mother-in-law gave me a lot of her scraps. She lived in Hawaii so she had a lot of pieces with bold colors. I don’t have a method,I just pick what I like. I would like to learn more about how to use scraps and how to make blocks with them
    Pat

    —Pat Kato on February 15, 2017
  • I always head to my scrap hoard. I have plenty of fabric and scraps to make over 100 quilts.

    —Lettetia Elsasser on February 15, 2017
  • a and b for me! I love scrap quilts! Even if I use a whole fabric line, it has to look scrappy. This book and the fabrics are beautiful and completely fit with my quilting style…

    —Susan on February 15, 2017
  • I love scraps and they are all over the house. I use them for embroidery appliqués as well. This would be a great way to use more at a time. Thanks!

    —Vicki on February 15, 2017
  • C for me. Love her colours too

    —Sandi Kelly on February 15, 2017
  • I’m probably a mix of A & B. I do have quite a scrap box but it always seems like I "need" some filler color. I haven’t done a lot of scrappy quilts as I usually have a particular color palette or theme in my head. I would love to win either set!

    —Selene York on February 15, 2017
  • I have a small collection of books and fabrics. I’m a newbie, 2 quilts started. No scrap stash yet, but there soon will be. The fabrics and book look like I will have to add them to my collection.

    —Cynthia on February 15, 2017
  • I have a sizable collection of scraps, but always love adding some new fabrics for more variety.

    —Julie in GA on February 15, 2017
  • Love these quilts! I would say I am actually between A & B. I have a lot of scraps, but I still go for my FQs. And who doesn’t need an excuse to go shopping for more fabric?! A new project is good enough excuse for me! 😉

    —Susan L. on February 15, 2017
  • I am mostly A with B mixed in. I love Carrie Nelsons Quilts, she’s a genious with color and pattern. She is also fun to take a class with. I’m loving that patriotic palette. What a great give away.

    —Michelle holfert on February 15, 2017
  • I have a scrap bag with much fabric left over from projects, so my answer would be a. I love making scrap quilts and would love the book. I would make quilts from this book for sure.

    —beth daniels on February 15, 2017
  • I pretty much use my scrap stash. If there is a background color, I might need to buy that but for the most part, I just use my stash.

    —Marvelyn on February 15, 2017
  • B, I never have enough fabric. Never! There are always new fabrics to peruse and choose for a special project.

    Carrie! I miss you! I used to take classes from you in Independence Kansas at Lillie’s Classic Quilts. Love your designs!

    —Nance Allen on February 15, 2017
  • When making a scrap quilt, I raid ,y stash. I like the kitchen sink look. Anything goes? Love this line of fabrics.

    —Mary on February 15, 2017
  • I would love to win. I don’t have a scrap stash yet. I am new to sewing and quilting. Love learning something new everyday.

    —Rae on February 15, 2017
  • I’m No.1. My favorite projects are scrap quilts, so I collect even the smallest pieces. What is ridiculous is that my scrap closet keeps mulitiplying–it never seems to shrink any. That’s a good excuse to have another wonderful scrap quilt pattern book. I love these quilts of Miss Rosie’s.

    —Kathy M on February 15, 2017
  • Mine is a combination answer of a and b. I think scrap quilts are great and love reading how to organize and use the piles of pieces. DB

    —Donna Briggs on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap closet. I have more than enough to work with!

    —Kathleen on February 15, 2017
  • I am a type B. I have been buying FQs that speak to me for a couple of years now. I have learned that I prefer a curated scrappy look. I have loved this book since I first saw articles on it. It would be fantastic to own the book and have the FQ bundle to inspire me.

    —Sherry Jurykovsky on February 15, 2017
  • A (and this is where I fit in with my all my scraps), well A is usually a desired mark to obtain, but in this case my conscience will not allow me to feel good about that one! So, to go a-stitchin’ with Miss Rosie might just help solve my problem somewhat!

    —Gina on February 15, 2017
  • I’m definitely in the A category, but wouldn’t mind at all adding to my stash by winning one of the bundles! 🙂

    —Janice Vaughn on February 15, 2017
  • I don’t have a lot of scraps, this book makes me want to start collecting!

    —Julie on February 15, 2017
  • I am definitely an A, but controlled scrappy. I told my husband last night that I could probably make 50 scrap quilts & still have fabric left. Van’t wait to get my hands on this new book.

    —Kay McCaffery on February 15, 2017
  • Depending on the pattern, I go to my stash of precut 2.5″ strips or to my scrappy box of 1.5″ squares.

    —Marty on February 15, 2017
  • I’d have to choose b and c. I have been a seamstress since I was 9 (my Mom taught me how to sew when I joined 4-H), which is over 50 years ago! I recently just started to quilt and have made a couple of wall hangings, so I really don’t have too much of a quilting fabric stash yet, but I have recently been accumulating some fat quarters that I like. I love Moda fabrics!

    —Mary on February 15, 2017
  • I am an A – I definitely have more that enough scraps to work with! Thanks!

    —Delaine on February 15, 2017
  • A & B these patterns are awesome, so inspiring!

  • Its A for me, at lesst first, if I need more of a certain colour path I will head to my LQS.

    —Judith Murty on February 15, 2017
  • I love her quilts! I am a combination of A & B. I’ve been saving my scraps to do some scrap quilts.

    —Barbara S on February 15, 2017
  • I would say A., I start with my stash and then add in more if necessary. I love the quilts in this book! Thank you for the chance to win a copy.

    —Cecilia on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my fat quarter stash. Love Miss Rosie quilts.

    —Rosemary on February 15, 2017
  • I am both a and b, and I don’t need much of a reason to go to the LQS to get more. I love fabrics and quilts. Also I would love to try making some of the quilts in the book and that fabric is just beautiful! Thank you for the chance to win!

    —Jan Marshall on February 15, 2017
  • This look is one that I am definitely interested uh. It would be great to win it and some fabric. Thanks.

    —Barb on February 15, 2017
  • Whenever I make a quilt I save all pieces bigger than 1×1 and "throw" it in a drawer. I now have DRAWERS full of scraps. I really do need more ?????? But, someday I will make a scrappy quilt and I try to collect as many scrapey pieces I can.

    —Janet Larson on February 15, 2017
  • I have my scraps sorted into sizes — stips that are just a bit over 1 inch for mini’s, squares in sizes 2 1/2″ and 2 1/4″ and fat quarters. I’d love to make the Wayne and Gordie quilt.

    —Barb Doty on February 15, 2017
  • I always go for A, then mix in some neutrals. The neutrals seem to disappear at a much faster rate. I LOVE that book, Carrie Nelson! Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Jaci Emerson on February 15, 2017
  • A – I head to my scrap bin. I try to use these first if I can, but if I need more variety, fat quarters get added to the quilt. I tried cutting usable squares from my scraps after each project, but so far, I haven’t been able to get a handle on it.

    —Terry on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my stash first then if I need fillers I head to my favorite quilt shop

    —Donna Merrifield on February 15, 2017
  • I fall between b and c. I don’t have a substantial scrap bin, yet. But, I’m working on it. 🙂

    —The Lisa Marie on February 15, 2017
  • I am mostly b.

    —Daniela M on February 15, 2017
  • I love Miss Rosie’s quilts….I guess I am mostly a "c" person. I have yardage but after making a quilt I generally give the leftovers away so I don’t really have a scrap stash—which is unusual because scrap quilts are always what I am drawn to at quilt/or trunk shows. I am especially fond of bundle #2…love those fabrics! Thank you for a chance to win…keeping my fingers crossed that I do!

    —Kathy Upton on February 15, 2017
  • I WOULD CHOOSE B, BUT A GIRL NEVER CAN HAVE TOO MUCH FABRIC,SO A STOP BY THE QUILT SHOP WOULD BE NECESSARY.

    —Pat Terry on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my stash. Or better yet I do block exchanges with friends-truly scrappy!

    —Louise Haddon on February 15, 2017
  • I am between A and B. I have new fat quarters and scraps. I would love to win this book and either set of fabrics. So many great quilts!

    —Sheila Fernkopf on February 15, 2017
  • What a great collection of quilts — I love making scrap quilts and head for a closet with not only my scraps but my mother’s and sister’s also. The ones that are most cherished are those from clothing my family wore.

    —Regina Harris on February 15, 2017
  • I go to a. my scrap bin or should I say closet…but often have to go to the fabric store for the plain fabric to showcase the scrap colors. The book looks very interesting.

    —Ruth on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a mix of A & B. I tend to buy fabrics in quarter yards and lots of fat quarters. And I keep all my scraps because you never know when that little 2″ piece will come in handy. I’d love to make the Raise the Roof quilt.

    —Kathleen on February 15, 2017
  • I’m afraid I’m one of those quilters that has bins and bins of scraps. some are left over from projects, but a lot of them are from friends that are downsizing and give them to me. I am just now able to say, "no" , but only occasionally.

    —Shirley Houle on February 15, 2017
  • A little of A mixed in with a little of B.
    The colors of the fat quarter bundles are beautiful.

    —Terri Tresise on February 15, 2017
  • OMG! What a wonderful book and a) I have the stash to do most of them. Of course I would also welcome more. Great book and great fabric.

    —Judy Purcell on February 15, 2017
  • I am a B. Love the book and the fabric!

    —Barbara on February 15, 2017
  • I just head for my stash. Not necessarily utilizing scraps, but just pulling random samplings of everything I love. Then I throw in some pieces that I don’t love. Oftentimes, those pieces that I don’t love absolutely will make the quilt. Whether it’s because of the color, texture, or print, it will change the whole.

    —Colleen Coffman on February 15, 2017
  • I’m definately in the ‘A’ category as I have numerous scrap bins and could actually probably let friends shop from my stash. It does take time, but I’m starting to feel more comfortable choosing varieties of fabrics for my scrappy quilts. they are my favorite as they are unique creations!. My fingers crossed for the win….. I really am hoping to get the book and the patriotic pallet. Can you put FQ packs of that together for sale ? it is wonderful.

    —Cheryl on February 15, 2017
  • I head to the scrap buckets, fat quarters, collected vintage fabrics, AND I like to shop for new fabrics too! I LOVE the quilts pictured and would be over the moon happy to win!

    —Niki on February 15, 2017
  • I buy fabric I like then when a project comes up I go to my stash first and have fun mixing and matching.

    —Judy on February 15, 2017
  • I love fat quarters and scrappy quilts and expanding my collection is my dream.

    Joyce on February 15, 2017
  • B describes me, I am all about the fat quarters, and usually that requires a trip to the quilt shop also! Love the red, white and blues, but the rainbow is spectacular also. And that book, if I don’t win will go on my wish list fore sure! Thanks!

    —Terri Barton on February 15, 2017
  • I have many many scraps so mixing fabrics for scrappy quilts are no problem at my house. Did I not say how my c h I love scrap quilts.

    —Karen Keeler on February 15, 2017
  • I think a combination of a and b- i have a good size stash but sleays ready to toss in a couple new fatquarters to mix it up!! The more fabric and scrapier the better!!! Love Miss Rodie payyetns!!!

    —Fran Anderson on February 15, 2017
  • I shop my stash. I have various stages of scraps plus yardage. I try to utilize it all. I try my best to keep my scraps organized by using Bonnie Hunter’s scrap saver system and I really utilize this system well. But there is always that certain fabric you need and then off to the quilt shop I go!

    —Terry on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my stash but I usually have to shop for some fabric to tie them altogether.

    —Jean on February 15, 2017
  • I go to both my scraps and stash for scrappy quilts. And if they can work use orphan blocks as well.

    —Darla Zimmer on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely a B – and I always look for a good reason to add to the stash!!

    Thanks for an awesome giveaway!!

    —Barbara McDonald on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bag. Although I have lots, there never seems to be enough! Love both palettes. Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Helen C on February 15, 2017
  • B…I head to my stash of fat qtr..but will not hesitate to run to the local quilt shop to add to the pile.

    —Francine Pedro on February 15, 2017
  • I’m an A/B person. I have lots of scraps, but I’ll pull from my fat quarters at home and possibly stop by my local quilt shop.

    —Deb Worthman on February 15, 2017
  • I have piles of scraps which make for interesting and colorful quilts. I would love to have this book, and of course, who wouldn’t love some more fabric?

    —Joan H. on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my closet, but may need to add to my stash if I don’t find what I am looking for. Love love love this book and the projects I see. The fabric is beautiful! Would love to win this give-away!!

    —Patty on February 15, 2017
  • I’m too new in this world so I don’t have. much of a stash. I would have to buy some fat quarters.

    —Jean Tomey on February 15, 2017
  • I love scrap quilts. I use a combo of both scrap bins and fat quarters. I would love to win the book and fabrics. Thank you for a great giveaway. You are going to make someone VERY HAPPY!

    —Sue Goodin on February 15, 2017
  • A. I start with my stash and then add new fabrics as needed. Also, I like a "controlled scrappy" look. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Stacy on February 15, 2017
  • Mostly B with a dash of A–with, I must admit, an occasional deep dive into my collection of yard-or-more pieces of much-loved fabrics. I learned of Miss Rosie from reading the Cupcakes and Daisies blog and am soooo excited about the new book!

    —Heather G. on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my fat quarters and scraps to use on a scrappy quilt. I love the Moda bundle fabrics.

    —Dottie Alexander on February 15, 2017
  • Mostly B as I have a big stash of fat quarters. I used up most of my real scraps in a couple of scrappy quilts last year. I really love the pictures from this book and the fabrics look really luscious!

    —Joan W on February 15, 2017
  • Mostly B, I like to use some favorites from my stash but wind up at the fabric shop to fill in the "gaps" or just because last time I was in I saw something wonderful. Love this kind of patterns they make such beautiful quilts.

    —Alice Luepkes on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my fat quarters. I love Moda fabrics for their bright colors and sturdy cottons. Most of my fabric does happen to be Moda because of my personal preference.

    —Linda Dylla on February 15, 2017
  • Since I am known as the "Fat Quarter Queen" at my local quilt shop, my answer is "B". No quilt is complete without a visit to my LQS. Every quilt displayed from the book is calling out for me to make!

    —Susan John on February 15, 2017
  • I use some of my fat quarters – and always have to pick up a few at the store! Thanks for offering. The book looks wonderful.

    —Arden on February 15, 2017
  • I am a C. I just starting saving my scraps and organizing them so I can use them!

    —Susie V on February 15, 2017
  • Oh, a) is the first stop, then b), especially stopping at the store step, just to get some new fabric mixed in so the quilt doesn’t look dated as soon as it’s done. Yup, that’s my story!

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway and I really hope I win!

    —susan on February 15, 2017
  • When I start a scrap quilt, I head to my stash. I have plenty to make several quilts.

    —Nancy B on February 15, 2017
  • I start out with the "scrap closet" and then supplement what I’ve found with a trip to my fat quarters collection. Of course, never say no to a trip to a local shop for even MORE!

    —Penny on February 15, 2017
  • I have a mind boggling stash that usually takes care of my scrappy quilts. Sometimes I need to head t my LQS for a friend or two.

    —Marilyn Holley-stupka on February 15, 2017
  • I really wish I could say I go to my scraps, but I just don’t have many larger scraps anymore. So I’ll look, then I’ll head to the fabric store….

    —judys on February 15, 2017
  • C. I’m a beginner quilter and just starting a scrap pile. I love the look of your quilts!

    —Nancy Norris on February 15, 2017
  • Scrappy quilts are the best, but (C) I would head out to buy some fabric and try to build a stash. This book is beautiful. There are many quilts I would make!

    —Debbie Hawn on February 15, 2017
  • c) I don’t have a scrap stash yet, but Miss Rosie’s quilts are inspiring me to start one!

    —Susan N. on February 15, 2017
  • Mostly FQ bundles I’ve purchased because they’re so pretty together!

    —Gale W. S. on February 15, 2017
  • OMG! I am constantly looking for scrap patterns as my fabric collection seeps out of bins and closets, waiting to be turned to something beautiful and useful. But more beautiful fabric is always welcome.

    Patricia on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my scrap area for the fabric needed. I love scrappy.

    —Betty K on February 15, 2017
  • b) I head for my fat quarters—and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more. I do have some scraps, but I love to mix and match fat quarters!

    —Nancy Bart on February 15, 2017
  • I’m collecting fat quarters for different projects. If I’m looking for something for a project, I usually pick up a couple extra colors so I can audition everything on my table. I’ll start out with a plan, but by the time I get my fabric to the cutting table, I usually find better combinations than I originally planned. It’s as if the fabric speaks to me and tells me how it wants to be pieced. Usually the results are much better than I expected, but it’s not what I started out to do.

    I used to have a huge stash, but three moves later, I’m having to rebuild. Which is fine, because my tastes have changed over the years!

    —Linda Schnittger on February 15, 2017
  • I go through my stash first but usually need more of a certain color or type of print so then hit the fabric stores.

    —Barbara Pailloz on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bin — which are two armoires and several totes. I have a mixture of anything and everything. I am more of a "planned" scrapper. I may buy something if I think the scraps need a new friend.

    —MaryJo on February 15, 2017
  • I have little boxes-(old Q-tip boxes) filled with scraps plus little drawers of larger pieces and a dresser of even larger pieces (including my fat quarters) so lots of places all colour co-ordinated. I haven’t made a mixed scrap quilt yet but have started to add leftovers to a pile that will become a scrap quilt.

    —elizajane on February 15, 2017
  • I love scrappy quilts and save even a tiny scrap of fabric. I have bags and boxes of scraps, and use them regularly. Somehow I never run out of scraps.

    —Coralie Wallace on February 15, 2017
  • C would have to be my answer. I have only made a few quilts and have no stash to work with. Book and material would be a great addition for any project in book.

    —Joyce C on February 15, 2017
  • Mostly B, fat quarters and some of my scraps, but I also use it as an excuse to visit with quilt friends and swap scraps with them. I love scrap quilts but I’m a little anal and have trouble "letting go" and feeling comfortable doing one.

    —Kristine Sveinson on February 15, 2017
  • Should be a, as my stash overflows, but I am weak and love fabric so it has to be B.

    —Charlene B on February 15, 2017
  • I’m not a real ‘scrap quilt’ kind of person, and just put scraps back with larger yardage pieces (not smart, because there’s now too much yardage to shuffle through). When I do a scrap, I pull out fat 1/4s and press and cut. I’m beginning to like the scrap quilts and should really set aside a week to go through and pull out and organize scraps……maybe next week, right now I have a new fat quarter bundle that’s calling my name.

    —Lerlene on February 15, 2017
  • I definitely head to my multiple scrap bins! Digging through them is like a walk down memory lane as I sort through pieces left over from previous projects.

    —Janine Keeton on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely A. Love fabric!

    —Boo Koen on February 15, 2017
  • I’m new to quilting, so I would have to say C. I am trying to build a stash. I love the pictures of the quilts from your book and would like to make several of them. Thank you for this chance to win.

    —Deborah S on February 15, 2017
  • Mostly B. I have all of my scraps cut into squares ranging from 1 1/2 inches up to 9 in hes. I love to use my fat quarters though. Then I can get even more fabric. Thank you for the wonderful book and giveaway chance.

    —Beverly J Luedloff on February 15, 2017
  • This is so wonderful. I don’t have a lot of fabric but love the scrappy look. My quilting bee each year collects fabric. One of the ladies cuts it into 5 inch squares and puts 80 into a brown paper bag. We each have about 4 months to create a quilt with the contents. The rules are you have to use a part of each square and you can use 1 1/2 yards of one fabric or 3/4 yards of two to complete the project. We display them at our local city celebration. We call it the brown bag. It is so fun to see the beautiful quilts that come from such a variety of fabrics.
    PS There are no brown bag police. The goal is to think outside of yourself and create something beautiful.

    —Amy Williams on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my closet which is filled with all quilt shop fabric. My fabric is all sorted by color which makes it easy to choose.

    —Mary Clark on February 15, 2017
  • I forgot to say which collection. I would love A.

    —Amy Williams on February 15, 2017
  • Under normal circumstances, I would choose (A) however 4 years ago I moved with my son and his family to another state and had to leave my stash behind because of weight issues for the moving van. We all made sacrifices to relocate. I donated my collection of fabrics, threads, books and tools to a wonderful group that makes quilts for hospice patients. My mother was with me at home and the hospice team helped me until she transitioned. With that being said I’m starting over. It feels good to make scrappy as each piece is a memory of a quilt made for a special person. I would so enjoy making the quilts in Carries book. Hugs and blessings, Joann

    —Joann Terry Hughes on February 15, 2017
  • A- I have Scrap bins that is sectioned off by colors. And scrappy means reach in the bag after being shaken and added.
    I would love to sit with Carrie and Miss Rosie and share scraps, discuss quilts etc.

    —Bonita on February 15, 2017
  • Mostly B, but I admit to having several fat quarter bundles that already coordinate. I love everything Carrie & Miss Rosie, that book is on my list. I recognize a couple quilts, but those photos are beautiful!!

    —Linda P on February 15, 2017
  • I use my scraps as well as the fat quarter bin. Love scrappy quilts!

    —Gloria on February 15, 2017
  • My scrappy style is farmhouse chic and it involves swapping fabric with friends and using up precious pieces of fabric designs I absolutely love ❤️

    —Lisa Jo on February 15, 2017
  • A-I head for my scrap bin. A friend makes a line of children’s clothing & often shares her scraps with me. Most of my quilts are made for local NIC units.

    —Kathy on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my scrap bin!

    —Cindy on February 15, 2017
  • My go to for scrappy quilts is kind of a mix of A & B. I check my scraps and fat quarters for go togethers. I might also invade my sister’s sewing room(with her permission, of course). The more choices the better.

    —Cindy F on February 15, 2017
  • A and B…I’m still learning my muse. I Do know I love the freedom scrappy quilts give!

    —Connie Collins on February 15, 2017
  • Scrap quilts are my absolute favorites. And my fabric stash is in a closet!

    —Jean Gilbertson on February 15, 2017
  • A I have more than enough for scrap quilts

    —Linda on February 15, 2017
  • I am definitely an "A" I love all quilts scrappy, and have more bins of scraps than anything else.

    —Karen Johnson on February 15, 2017
  • My scrap stash… it is out of control. Maybe I should make a few more scrappy quilts – like 10? or more??

    —Kalynn on February 15, 2017
  • Love the raise the roof quilt! Just ordered the book!

    Helen Brnhart on February 15, 2017
  • Looks like a great book-I love every quilt shown! I am mostly a B.

    —Arlyn Parker on February 15, 2017
  • I am a B. I have a small stash but usually have to supplement it with new finds at the quilt shop. Any excuse to buy fabric!!

    —Michelle Barker on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bin—which is actually a closet. I have more than enough to work with! PS I really really that Wayne and Gordy quilt!

    —Linda on February 15, 2017
  • Good Afternoon,

    I have to say that A would be my style. I have containers of stash pieces divided up by color and type of fabric, homespuns, batiks and my new favorite Diamond Textiles! Can’t get enough patterns for scrappy quilts! Thank you for a chance to win. Linda Pewaukee WI

    —Linda Pewaukee WI on February 15, 2017
  • I have a pretty large collection of scraps but I usually head to a quilt shop for a few new fat quarters.

    —Jean Dean on February 15, 2017
  • I am an A. Scrappy quilts are my favorite.

    —Dorthy Clendenning on February 15, 2017
  • I’m c) I don’t have a scrap stash yet, but Miss Rosie’s quilts are inspiring me to start one! Although I do have a few scraps, I’ve only enough for the odd block, not a whole quilt yet.

    —Jen B on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my scraps first then fill in whatever I need from my stash.

    —Joanne Wilson on February 15, 2017
  • Choices A and B are running a tight race right now. I think most of the time it’s A, I hit the scrap pile first and then B, a quick glance at my fat quarters and run to the quilt shop just to be sure. I like to explore all my options

    —Susan on February 15, 2017
  • As I as just learning how to quilt I really don’t have a stash built up yet. Have managed to do one lap quilt and now working on a queen size which has given me more scraps. In order to do a scrappy quilt I would definitely have to hit my small supply of fat quarters and probably the fabric store too.
    Would love to have the fat quarter bundles and the book would be awesome.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Carol on February 15, 2017
  • When I start a scrappy quilt, I usually find a multi-colored print of fabric that I like and coordinate other colors with the colors of the original piece.

    —Linda Sutton on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my stash, but would love to add these beautiful fabrics to it 💟

    —Lois Capper on February 15, 2017
  • I have a large stash of scraps and fat quarters. I mix both to make scrap quilts.

    —Jane on February 15, 2017
  • I use some of my way to many scraps and mix in some of my way too many fat quarters (actually, is there ever too many fat quarters?). What a collection I have. It is fun to pick and choose as you go along for some quilts. Love scrappy quilts!

    —Christine Boyd on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely A. I have way more fabric than I will ever use, but keep buying more to add to the stash.
    I love collections but almost never use a whole collection. I will pick a few I like and then add to it to make it my own. These are amazing quilts that definitely lend themselves to lots of fabrics!

    Wendy on February 15, 2017
  • Still have yet to make a scrappy quilt but I’m sure I would use some that I have and add more fabric to it. Never seem to have exactly the right fabric!

    —Peggy Bibb on February 15, 2017
  • Scraps and fat quarters and 10″ squares describe my stash. Would love to add Carrie’s collection and her new book!

    —Debbie Holley on February 15, 2017
  • I think I would use method b. I have never done a scrappy quilt it’s not my comfort zone, but lately I have thought about them a lot. I am a New quilter so I take things sloooowwly. Haha. Thanks for the book it I’d encouraging me to take the plunge.

    —Lucinda on February 15, 2017
  • Well I have to choose A and B. My fabric stash is huge and I have made 12 scrappy quilts with my stash and scraps, but for some reason my stash and scraps never seam to go down…..but this book is on my list. So many quilts I saw that I have to make.

    —Jacqueline Williams on February 15, 2017
  • My scrappy style is using up my stash. I have a lot of fabric from sewing projects over many years and I’m trying to use them up, 1. to clear out my sewing room and 2. so I can buy more fabric (haha – don’t tell my husband). I love the look of scrappy quilts for those reasons. Besides, it is fun to look at the patches and reminisce about what the fabric was used for in the first place, who wore that dress, which grtanddaughter’s doll got something made out of that, etc.

    —Sherie Christiansen on February 15, 2017
  • I don’t have enough scraps at home, really, to choose from. They differ wildly at this point. So I spend hours in the quilt shop mixing and matching until I get the look I want. Thankfully they don’t mind making small cuts.

    Emmey C on February 15, 2017
  • Hi l have a combination of b and c . Although l usually buy a pattern first and then work out the fabric next. Regards Ness

    —Ness on February 15, 2017
  • a) I head to my scrap bin—which is actually a closet. I have more than enough to work with!
    I like to buy fabrics in family groups. That way if I want to make just that group into a single quilt I can or can mix them into similar colors for a scrappier look.

    Bonnie on February 15, 2017
  • I love scrap quilts and Miss Rosies book would give me lots of ideas for more quilts. The saddest part about using my scraps is is when they are all gone. So I can always use more fabric.

    —jearit L grennan on February 15, 2017
  • I go for fat quarters and scrap bins. Fat quarters don’t stay fat quarters for long – they usually have bits missing!

    —Maureen Rawson on February 15, 2017
  • I am B! I find it hard to pick fabrics but love how Moda has such beautiful collections to choose from. I have a stash but tend to want the quilt like the pattern so I am out buying more!

    —Gloria on February 15, 2017
  • I haven’t made much scrappy stuff. I am finally getting a stash, but I still need fat quarters.

    —Helen on February 15, 2017
  • I lay out my crates of fabric stash, group colors and dig in!

    Gloria Ray on February 15, 2017
  • I head right for my scrap and string stash, which is
    far bigger than I want to admit. LOL

    —Donna Street on February 15, 2017
  • I go straight to the scrap bin. And my bin runneth over!!

    —Claire on February 15, 2017
  • Head for my 9 drawer under sewing countertop and 4 wide shelves behind my fold-out design wall. They are mostly sorted by color but occasionally I lapse. Looks like a lovely book.

    —Pat Meinecke on February 15, 2017
  • It’s a combination of all 3. I probably have an ample stash but maybe not enough in the "right" hue or shade. When I see fat quarters that I love I buy them knowing I’ll work them into something. I had read a tip a long time ago of putting what they called an "acid" in-which is something that fits, but doesn’t. It actually really works in the end. It seems like my preferences are always evolving!

    —Linda Vavra on February 15, 2017
  • I must say I have C although I am working hard on expanding my stash!

    —Effinger Martha on February 15, 2017
  • I am more ‘B’. And I have to check out the quilt shops too..you never know what treasure you might find. I love your patterns. They are so perfect! colorful and cheery!

    —marilyn mattfeld on February 15, 2017
  • I am an A for sure . I love fabric and these are no exception. I have this new book on my need list do I would live to win!

    —Laura Clever on February 15, 2017
  • I would head to my stash and if I couldn’t find what I wanted there I have a great fat quarter stash as well. Plus there’s always the quilt shop option.

    Kathy Spruill on February 15, 2017
  • I would consider myself a "B" person. I like working with Fat Quarters and have quite a few. The color coordinated bundles really attract me. Then if necessary I add some bigger pieces for edges and backs. Love the colors in the fat quarters being given away. Thank you.

    Claudia Frank on February 15, 2017
  • I don’t have a scrap stash YET but I am inspired by Miss Rosie’s quilts!

    —MJ Greer on February 15, 2017
  • If I could fit the scrap stash in one wardrobe , I would be an A. Waste not want not best describes my scrap stash, right down to 1″ strips.

    —Debbie Guihot on February 15, 2017
  • I would have to say mostly B. I have quite a few bundles waiting to be used up for something. Carrie’s new book is definitely on my want list! Can’t wait to try one of the patterns with one of my bundles or maybe a new one 🙂 if I win.

    —Annik MacLeod on February 15, 2017
  • I go for scraps and fat quarters for scrappy quilts

    —Diane on February 15, 2017
  • "A" represents how I usually put together scrap quilts. If I have fat quarter bundles I usually don’t want to cut them up 😉

    —Roxanne Eneroth on February 15, 2017
  • I would be an A, although Ihave scrap bins, not quite enough for a whole closet!

    —Karen McMahon on February 15, 2017
  • C. I have a difficult time with true scrappy. I need "organized" scrappy, which means that I head to the quilt shop and start pulling fabrics that go together. LOL

    —Cindy Nile on February 15, 2017
  • I have never made a scrap quilt so it would be fun to make with one of these fabric bundles and a pattern from her book!! survivor972002@midco.net

    —Mary Ann Hentschell on February 15, 2017
  • I go with my fat quarters.

    —Margaret Dalmer on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely B! I have a stash but also like checking out what local shops may have. Can’t have too much fabric, right?

    —Shannon Ragan on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bins, play color and print against color and print, and then take a black an white snapshot, just to make sure I have enough color value contrast.

    —Marcia P. on February 15, 2017
  • A. Describes me. I have a huge 3 foot tall basket of scraps. I cannot throw anything out! Am I a hoarder? I don’t think so, just the daughter of "Sooners" who lived a hardscrabble life.

    —Loretta on February 15, 2017
  • I am mostly A with a little B thrown in. I head for my stash but usually have to head for the quilt shop cause I just can’t find the exact fabric scrap or two that I need to go with my stash to finish the quilt

    —Patsy Philson on February 15, 2017
  • I am a C too but love fat quarters as well!

    —Julie on February 15, 2017
  • I will have to say I am A. B,AND C. I love MODA fabrics and also love scrap quilts.

    —Jean miller on February 15, 2017
  • I have bins of scraps. Cutting them for future quilts.

    —Becky in Georgia on February 15, 2017
  • a) and b). I have plenty on hand, but it is always fun to add some "new" fabrics.

    —Dixie on February 15, 2017
  • I am definitely an A. This book would provide wonderful inspiration to dig into my almost out of control stash! Love Miss Rosie’s quilts!

    —Peggy Grzelakowski on February 15, 2017
  • I’m an A and have the closet to prove it. I am currently in process of sorting right now trying to decide what the next quilt I’ll .

    —Sue Skiparis on February 15, 2017
  • I have lots of scrap fabric in my stash but the colours are so varied that I usually have to buy new fabric to finish a quilt. (That’s my story & I’m sticking to it).

    —Linda Wallace on February 15, 2017
  • I was raised with scrap quilts. My mom was born in 1906, quilts were a nessesity to keep you warm, and were made from whatever you had. Old clothes, feed, flour and sugar sacks were some of the sources of fabric. I’ve been sewing all my life but the years of raising my family was mostly spent garment sewing. Since mom passed away I devote my time to quilting now. I’m trying to use up some of my stash in scrappy quilts. I finished a red and white king size Scrappy Pineapple quilt which I gave to my youngest son and his wife March 2016. Unfortunately their house burned in November. The word is the restoration company was able to restore the quilt.

    —Jamey Herd on February 15, 2017
  • I would head to my stash, it fills more than one closet!

    —Renie M on February 15, 2017
  • I would go to my stash first, then if necessary shop. Sometimes my stash overwhelms me and I pare it down, of course I usually regret that move! Lol!

    —Judy Manuel on February 15, 2017
  • C. I haven’t yet made a scrap quilt. I started making quilts 3 years ago so I have only a small stash of scrap fabric. I do love all things Carrie Nelson and have 5 of her books including Farmhouse Favorites. I have picked my favorite already. Would love to win one of her fabric picks and her book ( could give the book as a present). Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Diana Collins on February 15, 2017
  • I am a B . I have a huge stash, but can’t stay away from the quilt shop. Since I got sick, money is very tight so I can’ t buy too much anymore. Would love to win your fabric.

    —Shirley Chairge on February 15, 2017
  • I am a B. I really liked the quilts that were shown. I would like to learn better how to put different fabrics together the way Miss Rosie does.

    —Nancy Norris on February 15, 2017
  • Has to be A. Always looking for inspiration to use up some scraps.

    —S Roalofs on February 15, 2017
  • B, I start with a fat quarter collection I like,then head to the local quilt shop to add similar colors from other collections. I love scrappy quilts and picking the fabric is my favorite part.

    —Maryellen Peterson on February 15, 2017
  • I am a "controlled" scrapy quilter, I have a box of scraps and lots of fat quarter. So the fat quarters that are being given away is perfect for my scrapy projects.

    —Vicki Kellogg on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my stash of fat quarters. I collect them all the time but I also save what’s not used for future projects!

    —Cindy on February 15, 2017
  • I am a "c". I don’t think I have enough stash. I like fat quarter bundles because I don’t have to do the matching! I love her Raise the Roof quilt!

    —Joy A on February 15, 2017
  • I have a basket of squares that I can use to make a quilt with, about 6 inches.

    —Liz Schmalzried on February 15, 2017
  • I seem to have lots of scraps on hand, however, it usually turns out that I don’t really have quite enough. So I have to buy a bunch of fat quarters to supplement my scraps, and of course there’s lots of leftover pieces. That’s why I always seem to have lots of scraps on hand!

    —Susie on February 15, 2017
  • My stash fabric mainly consists of reproductions and batiks, so when I make a scrap quilt, I mainly head for one of those. I am working on a stash of other fabric. I would love to make a scrap quilt from Rosie’s farmhouse favorites. I think those would be my favorites also.

    —Donna Minster on February 15, 2017
  • I’m somewhere in between B and C. New to quilting so I’m still building! This book looks wonderful. The quilts shown are the "traditional" type of quilts I fell in love with as a child, the love of which has also led me on this new journey! Such a fantastic giveaway, thank you!!

  • "C" for me. I don’t have a scrap pile, but simply love scrappy looking quilts.

    —Maria Goetz on February 15, 2017
  • Between A and B, mostly B – I head for my fat quarters—and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more. And starting a new project always gives me an excuse to check out new fabric ideas at the fabric shop or online also.

    —Carol S on February 15, 2017
  • I am a combination of A and B. I love to use my scrap stash to make quilts for charity, which has given me a better appreciation and love for scrappy quilts. But, I don’t have a problem adding a few fat quarters or larger cuts of fabrics if I need them. I love Miss Rosie’s patterns – I have two of her books and have made several quilts from them, and have others on my "to do" list. Thanks for the chance to win the fabrics and the book!

    —Janice on February 15, 2017
  • I am an A I have a plastic box with a lid my stash is in it, I am new to quilting enjoy working with colours and shapes acrap quilting is great I find a quilt block I like and adapt my fabrics to suit with colours and shapes

    —Gary Joachim on February 15, 2017
  • I look through my stash of fat quarters, yardage and scraps-which I have lots because they’re hard to part with. Then if I need more fabric I take a trip to the LQS.

    —Cassandra McLeod on February 15, 2017
  • A. I have bins for scraps esp strips of 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 inch. Scrap quilts are my favorite. I am definitely a happy scrappy girl.

    —Nancy Poorbaugh on February 15, 2017
  • I have a lot of scraps & I could use this book to help me turn them into quilts.

    —Kathy on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a combination of "A" and "B." I have a big fabric stash in the guest room closet and a great collection of far quarter too. I have to admit that I kind of like slightly "controlled" scrappy!! 😜

    —Yvonne Allen on February 15, 2017
  • I’d have to answer "C". I’ve thought and dreamed and planned a quilt for my neighbor who was in WWII. Now I need to put some feet and fingers to work.

    —Phyllis on February 15, 2017
  • I don’t have much of a stash right now, would love to win. I love scrappy quilts and am trying to build a good stash.

    —Anita Spicer on February 15, 2017
  • Answer A
    I have several fabric closets. But heading to a quilt shop is always an option. I love carries quilts and own all her books. Some of my most successful quilts have been her paterns

    —Tammy on February 15, 2017
  • Sort of like a "A" Except it’s plastic tubs full. And clear so I can see the colors.

    —Diane Steiger on February 15, 2017
  • I would say "A", check out the stash first before buying more. I would love this book and fabric!

    —Susan Stein on February 15, 2017
  • Like to go through my scraps sometimes, but often a bit of retail therapy is in order to get the perfect combo

    —Helen on February 15, 2017
  • I look at my stash first and then usually have to add some new fat quarters as I sometimes get hung up on my "vision" as to how I see it playing out. I love quilting!

    —Stephanie on February 15, 2017
  • I woud be digging in m stash in the closet. Love Miss Rosie’s patterns!

    I would be digging in my stash in the closet. Love Miss Rosie’s patterns!

    —Susan K. on February 15, 2017
  • All of the above! And of course I also just go buy more Moda!

    —Paula on February 15, 2017
  • Mostly B with a little of A because I took a fifteen year break from quilting and have to start building a stash all over again. I do still have scraps from back then but I gave most of it away years ago. And then of course, after B and A I run to the quilt shop to round things out.

    —Melanie on February 15, 2017
  • First I head to my stash but if I need (want) something special….it’s off to the quilt store. Thank you for the chance to win this book and fabric….it looks wonderful!

    —Patti Levine on February 15, 2017

    —chris z on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my fat quarters—and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more.

    —Sally Ann on February 15, 2017
  • I let the quilt design speak to me. Sometimes it says florals, sometimes Civil War,etc. Sometimes it shouts Brights! Then I go diggin into my 6 closets full of fabric!! I quilt, therefore I hoard. 🙂

    —Debbie Simpson on February 15, 2017
  • I do both A and B and also use my stash. Love the scrappy look and Carrie’s patterns! Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Diane on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a newbie to quilting so c) I don’t have a scrap stash yet, but Miss Rosie’s quilts are inspiring me to start one!

    —Sheila Bales on February 15, 2017
  • I start with the scrap bins and supplement with the fat quarters.

    —Karen A on February 15, 2017
  • Not a lot of scraps so I turn to fat quarters. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Elaine on February 15, 2017
  • I have only been quilting for a short time. I would have to go to the quilt shop with some of the little bit of stash I have find something to go with it. Better yet I should just buy material to make a quilt and add to my stash at the same time! I love Moda fabric French general is my favorite.

    —Linda Pulling on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely A. I am just learning how to make truly scrappy quilts. I tend to want to overplan, so am trying to loosen up a bit.

    —Cindy Fraher on February 15, 2017
  • I don’t really have a scrap bin. I have some fabrics but not scraps. With this many people signing up there’s not much chance I’ll win but I would love to.

    —Eleanor K Hunzinger on February 15, 2017
  • Would have to say a combo of A and B. No matter what you have you usually need to add something.

    —Marsha on February 15, 2017
  • I really do head to the fabric scraps which could fill a closet if I had one available.

    —Nancy Myers on February 15, 2017
  • I usually start with a classic color print I love, go through the scrap stash, quarters, and maybe purchase a little new fabric for a splash. I still like the patterns that have yardage measurements rather than describing amounts of fabric required in quarters. Love the quilts in the new book, very inspiring !

    —Diane Stink on February 15, 2017
  • I guess I would answer by saying "A & B" as I would try to use up the fabric I have but if not enough I would visit my local fabric store (Oh darn it) LOL Wow what a wonderful give away, I thank you!

    —Tanya on February 15, 2017
  • My answer is A. I have most of my fabric in clear plastic containers which I keep in a nearby storage unit because I have run out of room at my home. I love Carrie’s quilts and books. I would love to have the new book and fabric also.

    —Sara Reynolds on February 15, 2017
  • I have such an overwhelming supply of fat quarters that that is what I tend to go to first. My scraps seem to be not the correct size most of the time. I love Carrie’s quilts!

    —Leslie Schmidt on February 15, 2017
  • Choice A. Scraps are in the bag! What a wonderful gift….fabric and a pattern book to go with.

    —Judy on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely a controlled scrappy! I have a huge collection of fat quarters, but there is always a need for a few more to ad to the mix! Love to pull fats and then look at them for a few days to make sure they all play nicely togefher! Thanks for the chance to win this great giveaway!

    —Sandy Evenson-Hagen on February 15, 2017
  • I just pull out fabrics from my stash. And also I visit the quilt store to add to the pile. Carrie is so talented. I love her choice of colours.

    —Linda Webster on February 15, 2017
  • I’m an A I have so much fabric I could start a store and I still buy! Right now I’m working on a quilt as you go crazy quilt for us and my dear SIL saw it and loves it so maybe it will become a Christmas gift or make one for her that is the question.

    —Julie Kavarnos on February 15, 2017
  • I am an A through and through, my stash is in a closet, floor to ceiling. My scraps are made up of anything from teeny tiny to yardage, with lots of FQs thrown in. I absolutely love your quilts and your colours. Thanks

    —Janet Crossman on February 15, 2017
  • A -My fabric closet is currently a storage unit with all my worldly pocessions, not easily accesssible

    —Debbie Rehberg on February 15, 2017
  • I’m an A I have so much fabric I could start a store and I still buy! Right now I’m working on a quilt as you go crazy quilt for us and my dear SIL saw it and loves it so maybe it will become a Christmas gift or make one for her that is the question.sorry but this is the first time I entered so can’t see how I said this before

    —Julie Kavarnos on February 15, 2017
  • I’m finally starting to have enough scraps to be able to do an entire quilt out of my scrap bin without having to buy anything new. I wouldn’t say I have a closet full of scraps, but I guess choice A is closest to where I’m at! I love Miss Rosie’s Quilts and her scrappy style!

    —Jackie Trembley on February 15, 2017
  • I would be a combo of a and b. I’ve got a decent start for scraps but would probably break into my fat quarter collection too! What great scrap quilts! I

    —Debbie H on February 15, 2017
  • I have lots and lots of fat quarters and half yards in my stash to choose from. Love all these quilts! Beautiful!

    —Laurie Smith on February 15, 2017
  • I need to work down my stash so I’d start there but any excuse to hit the quilt shop is a good thing!

    —Diana O on February 15, 2017
  • A–The Little House on the Prairie books made an indelible impression on me!

    —JamieS on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my closet of stash because I don’t have much for scraps and I am unable to just grab and sew….I like "selective" scrappy. This book and fabric would be wonderful to add to my collection.

    —Nancy on February 15, 2017
  • A is the winner for me, too! But I always end up finding more fabric that I just have to have to add to my stash. That might be why my stash never goes away.

    —Jeanmarie K on February 15, 2017
  • A and B — I have a great, varied stash and a bin of fat quarters. Just need the book to get me diving into both!

    —Elizabeth A Monahan on February 15, 2017
  • I

    I usually look thru my scraps and then search thru my books and patterns for one that inspires me.

    i

    —Susan Farrelly on February 15, 2017
  • A. Head to my stash. But supplement with fabrics from the quilt store as needed.

    —Jamie Graham on February 15, 2017
  • I have a closet of fat quarters, and that’s what I’d head for first. Of course I’d need to add some new fabric too since new fabric always makes the older fabric look better.

    —Nancy McFall on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my stash of fat quarters and fabric that is everywhere in my sewing room
    My sewing room doesn’t stay organized for long because of a lack of storage options.

    —Vanessa Foster on February 15, 2017
  • I have a rather large stash so I can usually pick everything out but I do have to have it somewhat organized – have a hard time just picking up and sewing.
    This looks like another of Carrie’s books I just have to have. She designs some great scrap quilts.

    —Sharron on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely A — I cannot NOT purchase fabric that I love – at least a fat quarter! Long before I found time to actually quilt I was collecting the fabric that I get to use today. Thanks for the opportunity!

    —Debby Dodds on February 15, 2017
  • A would be me. I have several years of scraps to choose from.
    I enjoy Carrie Nelson’s quilts and books. I have most of her
    books and have made several of her patterns, even taken classes
    from her. She is a great quilter.

    —Velva on February 15, 2017
  • B here; I’ll search thru what I have, but usually need to zoom to the quilt shop for a bit to fill in.

    —Nancy S. on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my stash…. and then to the quilt shop to fill in what I don’t have….

    —Jan Perez on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my sewing room…filled with 30 years of stash enhancement! My quilt fabric philosophy is "the more, the merrier."

    —Deb Pflager on February 15, 2017
  • a) I head to my scrap bin—which is actually a closet. I have more than enough to work with!

    Anna Galuzova on February 15, 2017
  • Going to my scrap stash would be the obvious choice, but I like to spread them around,choose and then maybe go get some extra fat quarters. Love,love Miss Rosie’s designs.

    carol on February 15, 2017
  • My answer would be A. I’ve been trying to organize my scraps & love scrappy quilts.

    —Kelli Marshall on February 15, 2017
  • I pick from my stash that is in plastic bins. If there isn’t enough I get on-line to purchase more fabric and sometimes trade fabric with friends.

    Candy Auler on February 15, 2017
  • B – I seem to always have an excuse to head to the local fabric shop(s).

    —Sandra Maes on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my fat quarters and always rely on help from my local quilt shop (Block Therapy) for a few more and backing. I love working with fat quarters.

    —Debbie miner on February 15, 2017
  • I start with my stash of mostly fat quarters and then add more to get a greater variety. I can’t resist fat quarters whenever I shop.

    Kris S on February 15, 2017
  • My answer would be C as I am a beginning quilter and just starting to build a stash

    —Julie Kordick on February 15, 2017
  • a) I head to my scrap bin. Although I never have enough to work with! I love fabric!! I also go to the remnant section at the fabric store to see what might be good for a scrappy quilt and be a bargain!

    —Nicole Sender on February 15, 2017
  • I am an "A". I still have to supplement because my stash is lacking in a few colors and styles. Love the patriotic selection chosen by Carrie. Might have to try to duplicate it on my own!

    —Judyk on February 15, 2017
  • I have lots of scraps but usually prefer a more "coordinated" scrappy look. So my answer would be B!

    —Sandy Trachsel on February 15, 2017
  • Answer B & A: People say I have so much fabric that I could open my own store. Always plenty to choose from. But I do enjoy seeing the latest offerings at the quilt stores and buying a quarter yard of anything that catches my eye. With a quarter yard of this and that, making a scrappy quilt is easy.

    —Sue Mullane on February 15, 2017
  • B… I head to my fq stash and color drawers … whatever I need! If all else fails I head to the store!

    —Tonie Peterson on February 15, 2017
  • I’m definitely a B. I rummage through my stash first and then run by the quilt shop to fill in the holes. Appreciate the generous giveaway!

    —Rebecca Marzano on February 15, 2017
  • I have a huge scrap bin, but I typically love the lastest fat quarter group I purchased. Love the pictures of the quilts in your new book.

    —Jan Dudley on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a C now. Had scraps in diff places, gathered the together & donated them to a crafty lady club. Saw a few quilts I like so will have to start my scrappy collection again.

    —Vickie Harris on February 15, 2017
  • B. I start with my extensive stach of fat quarters. Just love Miss Rosie’s quilts.

    —ANN on February 15, 2017
  • I usually start pulling fabric for a scrappy quilt by visualizing the desired overall look and feel. Right now I’m making 16-patch blocks in muted darks and lights for a vintage feel. I love Carrie’s books and this one will be no exception! Love the fat quarter bundles, too! Yummy!

    —Cynthia Nolen on February 15, 2017
  • B — I head for my fat quarters and fill it in at the quilt shop!!

    —Donna on February 15, 2017
  • I’d have to say "B". I always have good intentions of sticking with my stash, but I spend lots of time in a quilt shop and give in to temptation. I’ve always loved Miss Rosie’s books!

    —Rita on February 15, 2017
  • A and B. Scrap quilts are my favorite!

    —Myra Henry on February 15, 2017

  • I head straight to the quilt store. I love Miss Rosie’s quilt patterns, and know that a large selection of fat quarters is what is required for almost all of her patterns. With so many new and fresh fabrics available at the quilt shop, my stash can’t compete.

    —April Perrino on February 15, 2017
  • A–scrap bin tubs have more than enough!!!

    Denny on February 15, 2017
  • My favorite type of scrappy quilt is just that, Any color will do!

    —Cheryl perilloux on February 15, 2017
  • I would be "A" and start overthinking my fabric choices instead of just freely picking.

    —Judith on February 15, 2017
  • I’m an "a". But I have not finished a scrappy quilt yet!! Have three in the works. I am always looking for more fabric to add to the stash.

    —Sylvia on February 15, 2017
  • My answer is "A". I do have a sizable stash of prints mostly fat quarters and half yard cuts. Generally I need to purchase border, binding or backing, but that just adds to the fun and challenge of scrap quilting!

    —Sheryl Hitt on February 15, 2017
  • I am a B, but I also make a trip to the quilt store for more to add to the mix. The quilts in the book are great and I would enjoy the opportunity to make one of them. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Cynthia on February 15, 2017
  • I haven’t done too many scrap quilts yet, and I’m really inspired to play after seeing this book. My current mix of scraps is too varied and not very plentiful, so I would have to search through my stash and buy more. Thanks for the inspiration.

    —Maryellen McAuliffe on February 15, 2017
  • C is more nearly the truth–just beginning!

    —Elaine Davis on February 15, 2017
  • I am a combination of A and B. My scraps are organized by color, so I go there first. If I don’t have enough, then I supplement with fat quarters. These bundles are really pretty. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    —Liz Dyer on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bin/closet/bookshelf which also holds my fat quarters — and I have plenty, but I can’t resist adding a few fat quarters now and then. Thanks for this great interview and the tips for choosing fabrics for a quilt. These quilts are gorgeous and I hope I win the book and the first collection of fabric! Again, thank you.

    Nancy on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my large collection of fat quarters, look them over thoroughly, and usually also check out one my local quilt shops. I never tire of playing with fabric!

    —Sandra Jones on February 15, 2017
  • I would head for my scraps first. I have a lot of scraps!!Some of them might only be in one or two blocks, but at least they would contribute. The book sounds absolutely luscious and the fabrics are right up my alley. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Sheila Kester on February 15, 2017
  • I have lots of scraps and fat quarters, that I’d start with then head for the quilt shop just in case I needed something extra. Which is just plain fun

    —Charlene Clark on February 15, 2017
  • I’d say a mix of A & B. I have many scraps & much yardage, but always need an excuse for more! Beautiful book! ❤

    Julie on February 15, 2017
  • My answer is "C", not any fabric stash yet!

    —Kim Reid on February 15, 2017
  • I check my scraps, then my stash. I do not have a closet full, I have been doing a cut up of my scraps on all my new quilts. It keeps things organized. I do love scrap quilts. I love these fabulous fabrics!!

    Vicki Sue O'Neill on February 15, 2017
  • A is my answer. I love making scrap quilts and like having a big variety of different prints. The quilts in her book looks amazing!

    —Nancy C on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my stash in a walk in closet, more than enough for many quilts. I love fat quarters.I could make some awesome quilts using this book. Love Miss Rosie’s patterns.

    —Lupeta Mahoney on February 15, 2017
  • I am an A and a B. I try to match my fabrics to the Quilt picture and if need be I then go to the store.lol

    —Sandy Dagg on February 15, 2017
  • I am new to quilting so my stash is small. This book definitely makes me want to build a stash to have lots of fabrics to use on her quilts. I love the look of scrappy quilts but with a more traditional pattern. This book looks awesome!

    —Jennifer on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a B. I especially enjoy going to the quilt shop to add to the fat quarters I have.

    —Diane P. on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a "c". All my fabric is for specific projects and I don’t have lots of scraps. I would use some of the fat quarters I have and shop for more to go worth those. This book looks amazing! I love every one of the quilts shown! Just wish I could coordinate colors for that scrappy look like Carrie does!

    —Dixie Klima on February 15, 2017
  • I’m (B)…I head to my fat quarters (and sometimes a few scraps) and then go buy more fat quarters. I looove fat quarters. I especially love the rainbow ones that Carrie put together AND I love that book! Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Becky on February 15, 2017
  • I always check out my stash first, then scraps and finally buy what I may need to finish the project.

    —Judy Clark on February 15, 2017
  • I have a large stash of scraps organised by size in a stack of drawers – my go to place when I want to play or make a serious scrap quilt. A couple of years ago, I participated in a Bonnie Hunter Mystery Challenge from my scrap stash.

    —Kerry Grose on February 15, 2017
  • Scrap quilts always catch my eye. I love black and brights,civil war reproductions with shirtings, and just all mixed up craziness of anything and everything goes. All these quilts are in my past and hopefully in my future!

    —Laurie Minneci on February 15, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bin which is several plastic tubs with an assortment of all different kinds of scraps.

    —Nancy Harvey on February 15, 2017
  • Dip into my scrap bin… The more and varied scraps, the better!

    —Pat on February 15, 2017
  • I would have to say ‘C’. I love scrappy quilts but I definitely need help from Miss Rosie’s book and a great bundle of fat quarters. What a wonderful package of loveliness!

    —Lynn Darcy on February 15, 2017
  • My scrap quilts begin with my stash of leftovers for the blocks and end with a visit to a quilt shop for fabric for setting strips & borders. Now I am working on a heart block scrap quilt. Either fabric bundle would make delightful quilts!

    Janine W. on February 15, 2017
  • I like to use the leftovers from all of my precuts. Things work well because I tend to use things that I like so my scraps blend well.

    —Sue on February 15, 2017
  • I don’t have much of a stash yet! I’m new to quilting, but at 62, I wanted to make quilts for my sons and their families. I would love to win the patriotic stash to make a quilt for my son who lives in Ireland. He gets homesick and I know that would cheer him up! Thank you very much.

    —Patti on February 15, 2017
  • Probably a little bit of each category, but a lot of "b"! Love Carrie’s quilts and down to earth, farm-style ideas!

    —Janet on February 15, 2017
  • Mostly A, but a little bit of B also.

    —Christine Wiseman on February 15, 2017
  • I’m an A. But my scrap quilts don’t turn out like her’s. I’d love to be around to help her choose. I think I may make too many styles of quilts.

    —Stephanie Woodward on February 15, 2017
  • a. I have a lot of fabric scraps.

    —Cheryl Broten on February 15, 2017
  • I’m definitely an A. I save even the tiniest little scraps. And I love using them in quilts. Thanks for the chance to win this awesome book and these fabrics!

    —Pam S on February 15, 2017
  • It’d be A, head to the scrap bin, as I have a bunch of them…but haven’t been sure what to do with them. Time to get that aforementioned experience!

    —Laura B. on February 15, 2017
  • I’m #A….I do have a scrap bin….and would love to be the lucky winner out of all these comments!!!

    —Deb on February 15, 2017
  • i start with my scraps stash. I have all my scraps organized by color so I can start pulling fabric of every color, The more colors the better!

    —Sherry J on February 15, 2017
  • I’m working on a stash and don’t have a scrap bin yet. Miss Rosie patterns are some of my most favorite. Thank you Carrie Nelson for sharing your talents.

    —Tawna Caddy on February 15, 2017
  • Definitely C. These look awesome though so I might get inspired to try some!

    —QuiltWench on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my fat quarters—and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more

    —Karen on February 15, 2017
  • A/B+ My ability to find scraps I love in various scrap bins has exceeded my ability to use them all. As has my love of fat quarters… and, and, and….
    5 yrs ago I thought I didn’t really have a stash. Now it has taken over, and I need to get serious about using it down.

    —Stephanie on February 15, 2017
  • Not enough fabric. I’ll say C.

    —Laura on February 15, 2017
  • Both A and B….lots of scraps, with some fat quarters thrown into the mix and even possibly a trip to the LQS!

    —Tammy Morrow on February 15, 2017
  • I will keep adding and then taking out pieces of fabrics till I am happy with my scrap colors,

    —Debbie on February 15, 2017
  • I would probably have to answer "A". I have a stash of fabric and I love bright and bold colors. Of course, there always has to be something new because, well, just because. When I see something I really like I get a yard or two and it’s waiting for just the right pattern and occasion. Sometimes it a real challenge to cut into the fabrics. I love fabric and I love having it. And I really love scrappy!!!!

    —Linda Frick on February 15, 2017
  • I would have to say "B". Even though I do have bins of scraps, I prefer to work with fat quarters.

    —Christine Prager on February 15, 2017
  • How do I choose fabric when making a scrappy quilt? I do just the opposite of what making a quilt from scraps means. Instead of using little bits and pieces of fabric that I have saved, I dig into my stash of wonderful yardage, just begging to be in a quilt, and then I cut into it to make the scraps! You can never have enough yardage……

    FYI: I have all of Carrie’s previous books and I just LOVE them. They are well written, interesting, and have great photos and instructions. Plus she’s a dog lover…..what else can I say?

    —Nancy O'Keefe on February 15, 2017
  • When I make a scrappy quilt, I usually start with my scrap bins which are sorted by colour. I often make a controlled scrappy kind of quilt.

    —Rebecca Keizer on February 15, 2017
  • A but it’s in bags in different parts of the sewing room for different styles of fabric.

    —Connie German on February 15, 2017
  • I think C fir me, but I recently started saving scraps in a plastic tub.

    —Kim McPeake on February 15, 2017
  • I usually head for the store, where I might spend an hour choosing fabrics and then see another fabric (in a different colorway) and spend another hour choosing totally different fabrics.

    —Chrys Morris on February 15, 2017
  • I would have to say C as I had a scrap collection but due to a bad break up a few years back my ex burnt all of my crafts and material. So, I am starting over again.

    —Sandra McFadden on February 15, 2017
  • Answer C – I’ve only been doing this for a couple of years and I haven’t built up a stash just yet, but I’m working on it! I can’t wait to get this book. Love the ideas you showed in your post.

    —Jenny Grandfield on February 15, 2017
  • I am building up my stash to have enough variety to be successful and have a great looking scrap quilt when I start the project. Not there yet but getting there, one can never have too much fabric. Great patterns to start collecting for.

    —Gwen LaBeau on February 15, 2017
  • I have always made scrap quilts and I primarily use "A", but you need to know that the fat quarters are in that scrap bin too. Thank you for sharing the quilt photos. It looks like I am going to have to make another nine patch.

    Debbie Crawford on February 15, 2017
  • I am an A, but with the option to visit a fabric store if I don’t have exactly the right fabric.

    —Beth B on February 15, 2017
  • Actually, neither A nor B nor C fit my style. I usually have one yard cuts on the shelves, and I pull LOTS of fabrics and cut from them. I’d love to win bundle one. Thanks for having this great drawing.

    —Sharon on February 15, 2017
  • First "A", I have LOTS of scraps, then "B" to fill in any gaps. Thank you for the tips. I really love scrappy quilts, but when making them I tend to sort, and they always turn out looking more controlled than I would like. I’m going to try the let loose and throw everything together approach on my next one. Love the quilts in this book, just beautiful!

    Shelley Needham on February 15, 2017
  • I go to my stash bins but end combining them with new fabric from the quilt store. Thanks for the contest to acquire what looks like a great quilt book for my library!!

    —Christie on February 15, 2017
  • I have scrap bins, drawers, baskets, and boxes. Makes me laugh out loud when I see ‘scrap bags’ for sale… like buying air to breathe!

    —Marianne on February 15, 2017
  • I guess I am a combo girl! as I do whatever it takes when I quilt. Mostly I go to my stash and then supplement from the Quilt Store. I love books for their multitude of great ideas!

    —Rebecca Casey on February 15, 2017
  • I too, will head to my scrap bins(yes that’s the answer) but then I would not be happy until I head to the quilt shop to find fat quarters to fill in with my colors. I like the idea of using large prints, I love them them but what to do with them?
    I think I need the book too.

    Althea Klosterman on February 15, 2017
  • B. I’m newish to quilting and I have a small collection of fat quarters. They are fun to play around with and move in and out easily to find just the right grouping for a quilt or project. Love the advice she gave on choosing fabric. Thanks!

    —Brenda on February 15, 2017
  • A – Head for my scrap bin which is overflowing!

    —Sharon O on February 15, 2017
  • I head for my fabric stash and start pulling till I have plenty of colors and fabrics pulled for a lovely scrap quilt!!

    —Helen LeBrett on February 15, 2017
  • My style started with C a few years ago, and I have worked my way to A. How did that happen? Love my stash, and opportunities to use it up.

    —Karen O on February 15, 2017
  • I was a (c) with no scrap stash until a month ago – then I decided to make a Jen Kingwell scrappy quilt. After 10+ visits to the fabric shop, many eighths & quarters later, I have enough fabric for the original quilt and at least two more. Thanks for the great tips on how to pick scraps! and for the giveaway

    —Shoshana on February 15, 2017
  • I would head for my stash boxes which contain fabrics sorted by colours….my collection id growing but i have started making picture quilts to hang on walls so i am in & out of my boxes quite often now. problem is i always end up buying more from my local quilt shop too!

    —suzanne on February 15, 2017
  • I start out in my stash and then head out for extra fat quarters!

    —Karen Gleim on February 15, 2017
  • A must have book – some wonderful scrap quilts. When making a scrappy quilt – I’m a "B". Use my stash and buy a few more.

    —Wendy on February 15, 2017
  • c) I don’t have a scrap stash yet, but Miss Rosie’s quilts are inspiring me to start one. But hey I’m just getting started as well.

    —Katie Higgins on February 15, 2017
  • I just love any sort of scrap quilt.

    —Christine Jenkin on February 15, 2017
  • I have a lot of fat quarters and the pile just keeps getting bigger. This book would sure help with all the fat quarters!

    —Karen W on February 15, 2017
  • To make my scrappy quilts i do use left overs from quilts that i have made.I gather the colours that work well together and go from there.For me its all about colour.

    —Sheila Webb on February 15, 2017
  • I just love these scrappy quilts, the colors are right up my alley. I would love to be a winner.

    —Nancy Yardley on February 15, 2017
  • I just love the colors of these scrappy quilts. I have so many fat quarters and I could get pretty close to these,I just need the book.

    —Nancy M on February 15, 2017
  • I’m an A … always lots of fabrics to choose from in my stash. It’s fun to look through what I have to refresh my memory. I love going to local shops, too, to see what’s new. I’ve made at least 3 of Carrie’s quilts – her patterns and fabrics are one of my favorites. 👍

    —Jaxine Andersen on February 15, 2017
  • I made my last scrappy quilt with a single charm pack that I supplemented with scraps from my stash! I enjoyed finding the additional fabric pieces!

    —Colleen Gonzales on February 15, 2017
  • Scrap quilts are my most favorite. I keep my fabric in plastic colored tote bins with fabric coordinating to the color of the bins. So when I need fabric or scraps of sort, I go to the tote color of need. I feel you can put all kinds of colors together but it depends on the tone of the colors. I love your "tones" that you have created!!

    —Debbie Mahlberg on February 15, 2017
  • I’m a bit of A and B both. I’ll use any excuse to buy more fabric!

    —Deb C on February 15, 2017
  • I love scrappy quilts and the first thing I will do is head for my scrap bin when I am about to start on a scrappy quilt.

    Sandra on February 16, 2017
  • I have a huge bin full of odd shape smaller scraps, and several bins of sorted coloured scraps folded in squares.

    —Pauline Perry on February 16, 2017
  • While I have good intentions to only use "A" my scrap bin….a shopping trip helps the local quilting economy!
    I’d love to make quilts from this book.

    —Annette Pascoe on February 16, 2017
  • A. I have a big closet full of fabric plus some bins of scraps to choose from. But I also love a trip to my LQS!

    —Judy Forkner on February 16, 2017
  • I choose C. Thank you

    —daniela on February 16, 2017
  • I love to make scrapquilts ! I have a lot of scraps and a lot of fat quarters and I like to mix my fabric although most of my scraps are blue.

    —Agnes Crispyn on February 16, 2017
  • a) I head to my scrap bin—which is actually a closet. I have more than enough to work with!

    —Susan P. on February 16, 2017
  • I have several bins/shelves to choose from – but I just can’t help myself looking in the quilt shops or craft shows for more fat 1/4s!!! Having recently purchased 4 books from you with many opportunities to make more scrap quilts, I have a hankering for Miss Rosie’s book as well. The new fabrics look gorgeous!!

    —Chrissy Hemphill on February 16, 2017
  • I head to my fat quarters and scrap bin. Don’t have as many scraps as I would like, but its a work in progress. Love the colors in the book, would love to win a copy.

    —Paulette Voit on February 16, 2017
  • I guess I’m a B…I have plenty of stash (been collecting since the mid 80’s) but there’s always something new I see online or at my local quilt shop and I have a need to add to my existing stash. I just wish I had the ability to put all of the fat quarters together to make something that’s scrappy that I like. That’s my downfall. I love the red, white, blue collection you show here. My dad, who passed away 4 years ago, was born on 4th of July and I keep telling myself that I want to make a patriotic quilt in his memory. They would be perfect. I’ll have to take the picture when I go shopping. I sure would love your book and the fabrics you chose. You have a talent that I need to learn!

    —Carol Thomas on February 16, 2017
  • (C)I don’t have a scrap stash yet, but Miss Rosie"s quilts are inspiring me to start one!

    —Denise Campbell on February 16, 2017
  • I check out my stash and use what I have!
    So I am A! Thanks!

    —Joan on February 16, 2017
  • I would hit my stash of course,but the book has some great ideas.

    —Holly on February 16, 2017
  • I’m definitely "A". Those scraps need to be used up so I can start a new stash!

    —Allison Evrard on February 16, 2017
  • B – any excuse to buy more fabric. Very impressed with the quilts in the book, they are beautiful.

    —Caroline Miller on February 16, 2017
  • A – I have enough stash to make all the quilts and some more. I love Miss Rosie Quilts !!

    —Halina on February 16, 2017
  • I go to my scrap bins and fabric collection to choose fabrics that will work together. The more the merrier!!!

    —Sue Huettl on February 16, 2017
  • I head to scraps, stash and maybe a bit of retail therapy at my quilt shop to get the look I want if I don’t have something I envision. Love the fabric choices. I’d love to have the book!

    —Susan Yates on February 16, 2017
  • I’m a "B". I have tons of FQ’s! The problem is, I have a hard time actually using them!

    —Dawn Hollingsworth on February 16, 2017
  • My answer is A, most of the time as I sew scrappy quilts for a local outreach benefiting children in the local communities. But it’s always such a treat to dig into a new bundle for that special quilt project. I love the patriotic bundle and can see a sweet quilt from it. Love your books, thanks for inspiring me.
    Smiles, Susie

    Sue parks on February 16, 2017
  • "A" i have lots of fabric to pull from, trying to stay away from the fabric stores. Thanks for the opportunity to have a chance to win what I’m sure is a wonderful book and some gorgeous fabric!!!

    —Karen Sikes on February 16, 2017
  • I go to my stash and pull a few pieces and then, yes, I dash to the quilt stores to check out the "latest and the greatest" that will compliment what I have so that I have "fresh" fabric to play with along with what I have 🙂
    I Love this book!! So many great designs that entice you to cuddle up in one of the finished quilts!! This will definitely be on my shopping list!!

    —Debbie P on February 16, 2017
  • B, I haven’t been quilting long enough to have a very big scrap collection but I’m working on fixing that.

    —Lisa P on February 16, 2017
  • I am a new quilter so my stash is minimal. Thank you for the opportunity for a giveaway.

    —Gloria Trinque on February 16, 2017
  • A. I have enough scraps to make a quilt that would cover Australia!

    —Sarah on February 16, 2017
  • I’m an ‘A’! Always looking for new ways to use my stash! Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Elaine Bishop on February 16, 2017
  • B I have collections just waiting for right pattern.

    —Penny Huffman on February 16, 2017
  • To be honest I must say I am a B. I usually try to work with my stash but usually I have to add "just the right thing" from the quilt shop. Love the giveaway!

    —Janet Bray on February 16, 2017
  • I use a combination. I use scraps and fat quarters from my stash, and also purchase some especially for the particular project. I love the muted colors she uses in the quilts in this book.

    —janet g on February 16, 2017
  • I am an A with a big stash but always looking to add new fun fabrics.

    —Deena D. on February 16, 2017
  • I would have to say that I check my stash first, but I also go to the local quilt shop. I am still pretty new at quilting so I love to look at all the beautiful fabric and ask opinions of those that have been doing this much longer. I would love to own Carrie’s book as I currently do not have any quilting books….. yet. 🙂

    —Carla Griffin on February 16, 2017
  • I’m an "A" – closet…or should I say closets, and dressers and boxes full of fabric stash (and a ton of FQ’s are included in this…so I’m an "A/B"?). This book looks amazing. I shared the FB post because I truly would make every quilt in this book!

    —Colleen on February 16, 2017
  • I have to go with C. I don’t really have a stash yet. I’ve been collecting FQs of fabrics that I like. This book looks wonderful. Thanks

    —Linda W on February 16, 2017
  • I would be an "a". Fortunate to have a large stash to fuel my passion for making scrappy quilts, my favorite. So looking forward to getting my hands on your new book — these quilts are singing my song!

    —Susan Oakes on February 16, 2017
  • I am an A and a B! I love scrap quilts and have the stash to prove it!

    —Diane on February 16, 2017
  • I head for my fat quarters and usually head to the quilt store to add a few more. I love scrap quilts but when making them struggle trying to decide which fabrics to use. My biggest problem is cutting into my favorite fabrics that I "might" want to use in another project! Not knowing at the time really "what other project that might be" I am stymied as to which fabrics to choose!!! I think I just need to make more scrap quilts and it will get easier.

    Diane H. on February 16, 2017
  • c) I don’t have a scrap stash yet, but Miss Rosie’s quilts are inspiring me to start one! These patterns remind me of my childhood. Good memories.

    —annie johnson on February 16, 2017
  • I head for my fat quarters, jelly rolls or charm packs.

    —Elaine Fredrikson on February 16, 2017
  • I love this new ok by Carrie! Can’t wait till it comes to my local quilt shop. When I’m doing scrappy, I pick a main fabric and choose scraps from that and then end up at the quilt store buying more fabrics! 👍😊

    —Danette Roundy on February 16, 2017
  • I hate that my keyboard doesn’t type everything correctly and I can’t edit my post!😩

    I’m sorry, Danette – we’ll look into that feature! –Jenny

    —Danette Roundy on February 16, 2017
  • Love quilting self taught and c would be my answer!

    —Sheree jones on February 16, 2017
  • I have several "stashes" that I use for scrappy quilts. I have a whole lot of small scraps that I throw into an old Boston Library bag. When I’m doing a scrappy quilt, I dump them out and conduct a scavenger hunt through them. I have another stash in a clear tote. When I’m done with a quilt and have some colors that already match, I’ll pull out a cutter and cut the scraps into 2.5″ strips, 5″ squares – whatever is the largest cut I can do on a piece. Then there are those larger scraps that could provide a "theme" color throughout the quilt. Those are folded in clear work bags in groups of harmonizing scraps. It’s fun on a snowy Maine day to pore over my stash of scraps and imagine what my next quilt might look like. Hmmm…I think I’m an A on the fabric giveaway. I can already imagine something…

    —Rachel Hendrickson on February 16, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bin first and then add fat quarters, jelly rolls, or other precuts.

  • I am a combination of "a" and "b" — I have been quilting for over 40 years and I have loads of scraps — can’t bear to throw anything away! I also have many fat quarters, because it is an easy way to add variety without buying yardage. Besides that, I have a love affair with fabric and I love scrappy quilts. I am looking forward to having Miss Rosie’s newest book in my library — to join her other books and patterns. I have been a fan, since I first took a class from her may years ago.

    —Carol Schon on February 16, 2017
  • ) I head for my fat quarters—and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more.

    I love Carrie’s designs and her fat quarter bundles look fabulous!!

    —Tammy on February 16, 2017
  • This is my first introduction to Carrie’s designs. I’m already quite taken and can hardly wait to see more. As a beginning quilter, I’m just beginning a scrap stash. I’m keeping them in fruit jars. How fun it is to see all the colors and shapes just waiting for the right moment to be incorporated into a beautiful quilt. Thank you for the opportunity to join in the fun!

    —Delinda Blakney on February 16, 2017
  • Start with A, then work into B if necessary

    —Linda Ahn on February 16, 2017
  • B) I head for my fat quarters—and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more.

    Those scrappy quilts are just GORGEOUS! How inspiring.

    —Malea on February 16, 2017
  • Head to my closet for scraps…and the 3 cabinets that have the overflow from the closet…the fabric fairy is so kind to visit every night !!! Love all the Miss Rosie patterns…I see a quilt of valor in the future.

    —Mary Lewis on February 16, 2017
  • I’m an "A" for sure! Many, many years ago I planned all my quilts very carefully. As the years have passed I have all these pieces and bits and have made scrappy quilts more and more. So for the last 20 years or so I do use up the scraps but I will try to plan how to use them and make them play together. It never gets old playing with fabric!

    —Karen DH on February 16, 2017
  • B. Plus a trip or two to add more to the scrappy stash.

    —Av Barker on February 16, 2017
  • A. but my scrap stash isn’t in a closet, it is in my sun room.

    —peg on February 16, 2017
  • Would love any of them, money is tight hear so just mainly sew whith and for my church but could go towards something that I could work on for my self.

    Mary on February 16, 2017
  • Well of course I head to my closet to see what inspires me. Then I pull from my stash and see what "I THINK" I need to pull this scrappy quilt together. Then off I go to my favorite quilt shop and buy the fabrics I need to do the job. It’s always so much fun to play with my fabrics…I call that auditioning them for their role in the quilt.
    I am a fan of Miss Rosie and have made many of her quilts. This special treat is going to make someone really happy. Thank you for the opportunity to join in the fun.

    —Mary Ann Thompson on February 16, 2017
  • B – because who can resist another reason to go shopping?

    —Karen on February 16, 2017
  • I have not been quilting for that long, but scraps add up fast and now I have a closet that is full of plenty of fabric and scraps. I made my first scrap quilt last week out of pieces I had been throwing in a bag for a year. The little quilt was fun to make and turned out great!

    —Ginny Leber on February 16, 2017
  • I head for my scrap stash first and maybe the quilt shop if I need a large piece of unifying background fabric.

    —Cassy L. on February 16, 2017
  • A and B – while I have plenty of fabric to work with, I usually visit my LQS for more 🙂

    —Gwen Wehner on February 16, 2017
  • Answer A – I head to my fabric stash first and last to try to use up what I have. Making it work is passion.

  • C
    I see fabrics I like, but can never get them together correctly, the colors just don’t blend well.
    It’s holding me back, and I just can’t build a good stash to choose fro,.

    —Ann Austin on February 16, 2017
  • I have many tubs and tubs of fabric to pick from. I also have a large packing box I had shipped to alaska from my grandmothers home in Tennessee that has scraps from when I was 18. Some of these scraps I have I have used to repair many of her quilts that other family has. Many of these scraps I incorporate I to other quilts for new family being born so they will also have a piece of their history.

    —Jerrie on February 16, 2017
  • i head to my multiple piles of scraps. thinking i will use a lot. after I finish I cannot even tell I used any!

    —Kathy Niemann on February 16, 2017
  • C. I love those colors…

    —Federica on February 16, 2017
  • A little of b and c. Always need more fabric. I found this post inspiring, look forward to learning more from feasting from this beautiful book. Loved the video!

    —Anna Manwaring on February 16, 2017
  • A

    —Nadia on February 16, 2017
  • I have LOTS of scraps – though they’re not very well organized – and need to start finding some projects to use them up!

    —Pam on February 16, 2017
  • I’m a mix of B&C because I don’t have very much variety in my FQ stash. I’m going to start the 9 patch quilt as soon as I get my sewing room back together.

    —Amanda on February 16, 2017
  • My answer is C. I’d love to win Miss Rosie’s fabric bundle.

    —Molly Skeen on February 16, 2017
  • Scrappy Quilting Fabric Selection: 1.Pull out those Fat Quarter Bundles that I could not resist purchasing 2. See if any bits and pieces I have saved will work. 3. Scrap that whole idea and go fabric shopping!

    —Carolyn on February 16, 2017
  • I head for my fat quarters—and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more.

    I’m starting to take small fragments that are too small to use on their own and putting them together to "make" fabric. It’s a wonderful mashup of like colors.

    Jo Haraf on February 16, 2017
  • I have a lot of scraps. I like the colorway of bundle number 1. I prefer a sort of controlled scrappy look with some constant fabrics and one color all scrappy. But at the same time I love Carrie’s Raise the Roof quilt and am going to be making that this summer. I think I may like scrappy better in a softer palette rather than brights.

    —Debbie Gallett on February 16, 2017
  • It’s "B" for me. I love collecting fat quarters so I have a lot of them; however, I always need a few different ones when starting a new project. The quilts in the book are wonderful.

    —Donna Vunderink on February 16, 2017
  • I have to say I’m a combination of all three. I don’t have a huge scrap stash but when I need fabric for any project I check what scraps I have AND fat quarters first, then head to the quilt shop for what I don’t have. Can’t wait to see Miss Rosie’s new book! The photos are gorgeous. Thanks!!

    —McLibrarian on February 16, 2017
  • I’m a combination of a and b. I might start with some fat quarters I picked up, and add from my stash, or might start just by sorting the stash – which is not a closet, it’s a wall in my sewing/school room. I might shop for a piece if I really need it, but I usually try to make my stash work.

    —Rebecca L Galla on February 16, 2017
  • When it canes to a scrap quilt I pick the main fabic then I go to my fat quarter and some time go to the store and buy more fat quarters. Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Lorie B. on February 16, 2017
  • I am definitely a B. I find something that inspires me and then work from that adding complimenting elements. Usually this starts at my stash but can sometimes start at a fabric shop or web shop. Either way I find great value it keeping my stash because it helps me in making the designing my own.

    —Marlene Moran on February 16, 2017
  • For me it is b. Thanks for the chance, love the Quilts!

    —Hanke Fijnvandraat on February 16, 2017
  • I pick a pattern first, then head to my fat quarters that are in a small bin on my shelf and draw from there, then I look in a little case that is really for cosmetics, but I haven’t used it so it has fat quarters in it now. I see what I can draw from there, but I always need more, so I go to the quilt shop. I love making scrappy quilts, because I get to use up my fabric that I loved buying.

    —Pamela Zajicek on February 16, 2017
  • I have just made 4 quilts so not alot of scraps yet but working on it~

    —katherine on February 16, 2017
  • B :). Although, my stash is quite small, so I could also lean toward answering c! I love all the quilts in this post! I can’t wait to get the book and try a few of the patterns!!!!

    —Iris on February 16, 2017
  • I have a great stash and love scrappy quilts, but can always use more fabric! Yes i am an addict (to fabric that is).

    —Maureen Hill on February 16, 2017

    —Eleanor K Hunzinger on February 16, 2017
  • Oh my to win one of miss rosies pattern books would be wonderful. I am heading for my stash right now to see what I have.

    kathy on February 16, 2017
  • B would be my answer. I check my fat quarters and might go to the quilt shop form more.

    —Dianna Willstaedt on February 16, 2017
  • My answer is A and I always start with a colour or fabric I love and then the colours sort themselves from there. I still may need to go to the quiltshop though.

    —Marcella Mortison on February 16, 2017
  • I head for my fat quarters – is there a problem with going to the fabric store for a few more too;) The new book looks wonderful!!

    Susie Miller on February 16, 2017
  • I start with my scrap bin and fat quarters. Then I usually add a fabric for background to pull it all together.

    —Carol Herriot on February 16, 2017
  • A — Past projects, gifts from friends, and the purchase of "scrap bags" at local guild shows have left me with a considerable stash of small amounts of many different fabrics. My favorite scrap quilt resulted from a fabric exchange with friends, in which we each brought fifty 2-1/2 inch strips, and spent the evening cutting two squares off of every strip — tremendous variety of fabrics!

    —Candy Gawne on February 16, 2017

    —Marion. Thamm on February 16, 2017
  • Both A and B!

    —LisaS on February 16, 2017
  • My answer definitely is a). I head to my scrap bin(s).

    —Laura on February 16, 2017
  • I would use by existing scraps (choice A) of a certain style such as reproduction, and then buy some fabric (choice B) to add in. Who doesn’t need more fabric? LOL Thank you for the chance to win her newest book.

    Nancy Stone on February 16, 2017
  • I am an A , I definitely have a scrap stash! It’s in layers much like the earth 🙂 I still have scraps from the 1990’s; yikes! I still love it all and use it all!

    —Mary on February 16, 2017
  • I keep left-over pieces of fabrics I really really really in a bag and don’t mix them in with so so pieces —

    —Elizabeth Tranberg on February 16, 2017
  • B. I have such a stash of fat quarters and I’m always looking for new patterns to use with them. I have some other Miss Rosie books and would love to add this one to my collection.

    —Suzanne on February 16, 2017

    —Mary Carlson on February 16, 2017
  • I most definately would be an A. I have more fabric in my closet than I will ever be able to sew up!! Love scrappy quilts and your book!!

    —Jeanette C on February 16, 2017
  • I always try and use what I have; however, I seem to feel the need to head to the Quilt Shop just to be sure of my selections are complete. With all the new yummy fabrics coming out…………….Well, I can hear them calling me.

    —Carol Camus on February 16, 2017
  • I "file" my scraps as I finish a project in plastic bins by color. I also like to mix patterns and solids and am always on the lookout for fat quarters that "zing" – especially when they are on sale. I would love to work with the fat quarters pictured in the giveaway.

    —Eunice Merideth on February 16, 2017
  • I go to my stash and pick out one colour and go from there. I sometimes start with 4-patch, or 9-patch and add 1/2 square triangles and keep building. It is such a wonderful way of making a quilt. Pride in giving something home made.

    —Darlene on February 16, 2017
  • I would go to my boxes of fabric and fat quarters and try to find a theme such as all civil war or ’30’s reproductions, or all really scrappy in colors that go together. Perhaps I’d find a border first and then get FQ’s from colors in the border, which ties them all together.

    Judy Garling on February 16, 2017
  • Terrific prize! Thanks for the opportunity. A, I head to my stash and start digging for big pieces!

    —Sandy Rowe on February 16, 2017
  • I go to my scraps first and pull out my personal pre-cuts. I’ve been cutting up my scraps for many years and I think it adds greatly to my scrappy quilts.

    Jeanne Bishop on February 16, 2017
  • Scrappy quilts terrify me. I know I need therapy and this strikes me as a perfect start on the road to recovery.

    —M Hebel on February 16, 2017
  • I am an A-I would go to my tubs of scraps and begin to sort. I love
    the quilts and anxious to get started on one of the beauties. Thank you

    —Linda W on February 16, 2017
  • A. My stash is in a large walk in closet. This is a collection of 25 years plus. I like the new arrangement of blocks in these quilts.

    —LoriAnn Anderson on February 16, 2017
  • I am new to quilting and don’t have a stash yet since I have made just one quilt! I also live in a NYC apt so I have to keep an eye on space. I love the colors in the first stash. It fits right into my decor. Fingers crossed that I get to learn some new techniques with some fresh, beautiful fabrics!

    —Sara Beth on February 16, 2017
  • I go to my stash (a). I then go and purchase more fabric to make it scrappy.

    —Michele Klein on February 16, 2017
  • My sister and I both quilt and often combine scraps and FQs for a project. She is more conservative and I am more wild so we even each other out 🙂

    —Jo-Anne Cooperc on February 16, 2017
  • I guess I’m an (a) and then have an excuse to go to the quilt store. Love scrappy quilts and yours are beautiful!

    barb h on February 16, 2017
  • b) I head for my fat quarters—and might zoom by the quilt shop for a few more.

    For me, it would be a personal pleasure to make a Miss Rosie Quilt. I have read previous books by Carrie Nelson. I appreciate her step-by-step instruction to detail and accuracy. With her well written patterns I believe I could achieve success in any of her projects… after a quick trip to the fabric store for additional fat quarters :>)

    —Georgina on February 16, 2017
  • I fix an ice cold Dr Pepper, sneak off to my sewing room, lock myself in and pull out my most favorite of scrap fabrics. Then the excitement builds as I add additional colors and textures to create my masterpiece. Next, I select an equally stunning pattern and make that quilt a reality!

    —Ronna H on February 16, 2017
  • I have more fabric than i will ever be able to use in my lifetime but that hasnt stopped me from buying more!

  • I am a B but always aspire to be an A. Trying to gain confidence in picking all my own fabrics. I usually need more lights/backgrounds. I saw your book tonight and I love it. So many different patterns to choose from. Thank you for sharing your gift of creating quilts.

    —Pam on February 16, 2017
  • I head right for the fabric stash first. I always end up at the store for that one or two pieces that will finish off the project just right.

    —Elaine Chamberlain on February 16, 2017
  • I think my scrappy quilts pick me. I have a large stash that includes bolts of fabric, fat quarters, pre-cuts, and scrap jars. A single fabric usually catches my eye and then I have to find everything that goes with it. There are times I plan a quilt and then a single piece of fabric takes over and changes everything.

    —Jackie P on February 16, 2017
  • A best describes me. I’ve got a huge stash, but always room for more 😂 I like the a bundle

    —Cheryl Noakes on February 16, 2017
  • I would head for my huge stash of scraps, fat 1/4’s, yardage, 5″ squares from guild exchanges, etc. I love to mix them up!

    —Elaine on February 16, 2017
  • I would head for my stash of scraps (including some from my mother), 5″ squares collected from guild exchanges, fat 1/4’s and yardage. It’s so fun to mix them up!

  • C- I love these quilts. I want to make them all. Thanks!

    —Tina on February 16, 2017

    —Evelyn on February 16, 2017
  • I’m a B. I’ll go to my fat quarters & then go to local quilt shop for borders or extra FQ’s. Love the quilts in this new book. Thanks a lot for the chance to have it.

    —Sandie G on February 16, 2017
  • These days I’m making a big effort to start with my stash bins then add in some fat quarters as needed. thanks for giveaway

    —Pam Reim on February 16, 2017
  • I am a B-go to my fat quarters then may buy any filler fabrics.
    I do have a lot of yardage that is bundled for a certain quilt but doesnt quite go with my fat quarters.
    Great bundles!

    —Jill Meador on February 16, 2017
  • I would a)Go straight to my stash! I have so much scrap fabric in my stash that I can’t justify buying it when I can use what I’ve already got.

    Gina on February 16, 2017
  • I’m definitely a combination of a and b, and genetically incapable of throwing away fabric!

    —Mary Cann on February 17, 2017
  • D. None of the above. I’ve only been quilting for about six months. My scraps fit in a Ziploc bags – I don’t have anywhere near enough for a whole quilt yet!!

    —Marcie Higgins on February 17, 2017
  • I would be a B. Try to use the stash as much as possible (one fabric shelf is starting to bow with the weight). Usually find I have to just get hold of that one or two blenders from the local quilt shop to help it all come together. Beautiful quilt colours in Miss Rosie’s book.

    —Kim Sonter on February 17, 2017
  • I go to my scrap stash and try to find something to go with fabrics. I am currently trying to complete numerous ufo’s and head to my scrap stash to finish a backing or binding or sashing to a placemat or hanging or quilt.

    —Karen on February 17, 2017
  • I love to be kinda crazy . Just start and add to main fabric. A lot of mine is from fabric I got when my momma passed.

    —Nancy Chaney on February 17, 2017
  • I’m a C – not enough fabric in the scrap bin yet. Love Miss Rosie’s quilts!

    —Tricia Hoffmann on February 17, 2017
  • I fall in category A I head to my stash bin which is a closet of various fabrics.

    —Rosalind Gutierrez on February 17, 2017
  • I guess I am a combination of A and B. I am building up a pretty good stash but I might want to stop by the store and fortify it!

    —Jackie Isler on February 17, 2017
  • I would be C. I’m still building my scrap stash.

    —Linda Haan on February 17, 2017
  • I don’t have a scrap stash, but I do have plenty of fabric, so I would probably use that first. I love the quilts you have shown from this book, especially Raise the Roof. I will have to get this book if I don’t win! Thank you for the opportunity.

    —Barbara Reifsnider on February 17, 2017
  • Carrie’s quilt designs are wonderful! Her use of background fabrics brings out the best in the scrappy pieces!

    —Carol on February 17, 2017
  • I would have to say that I am more of a C. I have a small collection of scraps but am learning to create a stash as time goes on…and learning to throw nothing away!!! Love her quilts!

    —Carolyn Block on February 17, 2017
  • I am a combination on A and B. Lots of FQ’s that I just keep looking at because I’m afraid to cut them! So pretty! And I have boxes of pieces 10 years old that I can’t throw away yet! I love all the patterns…..just my style.

    —Barb on February 17, 2017
  • I head to the closet in my sewing room and choose from my 25 year stash. I love scrappy quilts and I am so excited with your book snd ideas since I lean toward traditional patterns snd I still hand quilt. I would love to win!

    —Suzanne Gibson on February 17, 2017
  • I’m a B. I like to start with a fabric line and add in others. That’s how I shop too so I have bundles of fabrics just waiting for the right pattern.

    —Mary Ann on February 17, 2017

    —Suzanne Gibson on February 17, 2017

    —Jayne P on February 17, 2017
  • Definitely A–trying to make a dent in my scraps!

    —Kris B on February 17, 2017
  • C. I don’t have a stash yet. I’m relatively new to quilting and I’m working on my stash.

    —Kelly Fortier on February 17, 2017
  • I’m an A – it’s so fun to mix colors and find that your scraps really do look good together if you just go with it. It’s hard to be real scrappy, but the end results over time, give you more confidence to just go with it!

    —Christine Wallace on February 17, 2017
  • I’m definitely an "A", however, I stash my scraps into gallon-size Ziploc bags. Looking forward to Carrie’s book for inspiration. Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Carmen Rowan on February 17, 2017
  • Combination of a and b. Sure wish I was lucky enough to win sometime

    —Virginia on February 17, 2017

    —Joan on February 17, 2017
  • I have been quilting for over 30 years and so I have acquired a nice stash of fabric to choose from when planning a scrap quilt. I love the pictures shared of the quilts in the book and will be ordering a copy as soon as I finish this comment! Thanks for sharing your designs – a great inspiration to us all!!!
    Best of luck,
    Patty

    Patricia Hammond on February 17, 2017
  • A. I head right to my scrap bins that are sorted by color. I also have some pre=cut bins where I have already cut strips in 1 1/2″ and 2 1/2″ strip and 5″ squares. I have worked hard at collecting this stash and I love scrappy quilts so I intend to use it!

    —Ferne on February 17, 2017

    —Ann L. on February 17, 2017

    —Kathleen T on February 17, 2017
  • I am a C and a B – not many scraps yet, but a bunch of FQ

    —Marian Allen on February 17, 2017

    —Barb Harvey on February 17, 2017

    —Donna Baker on February 17, 2017
  • Mostly I head for my stash, but it is always fun to add new fat quarters or yardage to the mix, such as these luscious ones, and the book looks really exciting!

  • I love scrap quilts so I have set aside a pile of scraps that I incorporate into my quilt tops. Is I have a FQ that I like and want to use, I’ll cut from that also.

    —Barbaraben on February 17, 2017
  • I would go to my scrap stash

    —Sue N on February 17, 2017
  • I am an A and B combination. But I am not good at picking out fabrics for quilts. It frustrates me. Love to sew , but hate to decide on fabric. Carrie’s comments about how she does it now, might help. Would love to win this book. Love her quilts, they look so warm and inviting!

    —Kim Mueller on February 17, 2017
  • A I start with my scrap stash and purchase fabrics to go with what I have.

    —Kim on February 17, 2017
  • I head for my fat quarter stash and then to my scrap stash and then to the quilt store. Usually in that order.

    —Sue Smith on February 17, 2017
  • I’m a b. I love every quilt in this book. It will be hard to know which one to choose to make first!

    —Janice on February 17, 2017
  • B, I do like fats, but have yardage to use also. Like her inspirational fabrics and patterns!

    —Lynne on February 17, 2017
  • I’m A and B. Lots of fabric in the stash, but seems I always need to "supplement". Oh darn–another shopping trip! 🙂

    —Caryn Goulden on February 17, 2017
  • I head to the quilt store for a piece of fabric I absolutely love then I go into the the stash for colors and fabric that "plays well with others". Having a fresh piece of fabric lets me see my stash in a new light. Thank you for posting Miss Rosie’s hints on selecting fabrics.

    —Cheri Bergeron on February 17, 2017
  • I am working at getting a great supply of scraps as Rosie’s quilts are so inspiring.

    —Arlene on February 17, 2017
  • My answer is "A" I get in there and start digging through my fabric collection. But I always seem to get caught with a larger piece that I hesitate to use in fear that I will be short for another project. I have to learn to let go and use it up! Maybe bit by bit. Not all my fabrics are fat quarters. I made Raise the Roof several years ago and it was sent off to my sister for a 50th birthday, I really need to remake this one for myself. I still love it just as much as when I first saw the pattern. I just love Carrie’s style and colours.

    —Anne Taschereau Mamers on February 17, 2017
  • Oh my! I have a stash of scraps large enough for 10 quilts. I just need the right inspiration. Looks like this book has plenty of great patterns to keep me busy. I would love to win so I can jump in and get started!

    —Mary Smith on February 17, 2017
  • C for me…I’d love to win the pretty rainbow prints from Moda & the book, too, of course! 😉 Thank you for a chance to win!

    —April J on February 17, 2017
  • I am working on a scrappy EPP project right now. I have to say A and B. I first went to my FQ stash which is in an antique china cabinet, and then I stopped by the local quilt shop and bought a few more FQs. But I check out their FQs everytime I go into the store and often add to my stash. This time I also checked my scraps for 2 1/2 inch strips. I love my stash and scraps!

    —Nancy A on February 17, 2017
  • actually i would choose {A} but my stash is in a chest of drawers instead of a closet. At least this is where I would start and then I would shop for other pcs. of fabric to purchase to go with what I have. These Quilts in her book are beautiful and I would love to win the book and start in on one. Thankyou for posting this book and the oppourtunity to win.

    janis spencer on February 17, 2017
  • Definitely c) I have started saving scraps but only in a very small way so far. The article is a fascinating insight into how to someone can create such beautiful quilts from scraps! The book looks very interesting, the quilts are all gorgeous and the offered bundles are amazing. Must start saving/sorting scraps more quickly to merit buying this book!!

    —Suzanne Bradley on February 17, 2017
  • I head for my collection of fat quarters and then augment that with my scrap bins.

    —Sharon Decker on February 17, 2017
  • I begin with my stash. If that is not (good) enough, I go to the shop.

    —Anna on February 17, 2017
  • I start with my scraps first, then fat quarters, then I raid my friends scraps. I have a great friend who is always willing to share her scraps.

    —Dee on February 17, 2017
  • I’m an A. Actually I almost ONLY ever make scrap quilts – and have for over 40 years. But I don’t like having a large stash so I am constantly making something, from a bed quilt to a miniature, to use up what I can. Then I start over with new fabric, preferably bundles that coordinate. Then I add whatever I have left to go with it.

    —Donna Lynn Smith on February 17, 2017
  • We have downsized from a huge house to a small apartment and most of my materials are in storage, so I have to say that I would "normally" head to my tubs full of scraps. These days I just go get more fabric to work with. I love farm style quilts and do definitely love Moda fabrics. Thanks for the opportunity to win the fabulous book and stash!

    —Cindy M in Oregon on February 17, 2017
  • B. I collect fat quarters, and Carrie’s quilts and patterns are terrific! The patriotic FQs would be my choice.

    —JLouise on February 17, 2017
  • Can I answer "D: All of the Above"? LOL I’m mostly C, but have been working on both A and B. I love scrappy piecing.

    —Donna on February 17, 2017
  • A THEN B IF I NEED MORE!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this BOOK and would be THRILLED to WIN it (and of course, the fabric!)

    —Kate on February 17, 2017
  • A! So many scraps all over the house that I can make many new quilts out of them

    —Camillo on February 17, 2017
  • I love to sew, but I don’t have a large stash of scraps. I hate picking out fabrics for quilts, not confident in my judgement. Now that I am retired I am hoping to work on a lot of quilts for family, charity, and selling.

    —Rosanna Ray on February 17, 2017
  • A. I collect all scraps left from all my quilts!

    —Joanna on February 17, 2017
  • I am an A, but I always seem to need one or two more fabrics that I don’t have. I think that is one of the "rules of the sewing universe"! Love Carrie’s patterns!!

    —Deborah Fields on February 17, 2017
  • B. What a wonderful book, always have fat quarters ready for projects like these.

    —Kathy G on February 17, 2017
  • I’m a B/C combo — I’ve not made a ‘scrappy’ quilt yet but want to. I LOVE
    the quilts in this book, and Carrie’s hints/helps on picking fabrics is SO
    helpful! Thanks for offering such GREAT give away prizes!!
    I have ‘found’ pieces of fabrics in my stash to use with a quilt, but I
    usually need to take a pattern and go on fabric hunt for fabrics to use. I do love
    finding a fabric I have already–makes me think I’ve done something
    right! Lol
    Thanks again!!

    Kathy Brown on February 17, 2017
  • I would say A. I use my stash fabrics for scrappy quilts. I would love to win the Fat quarters and Carrie’s book. Thanks for the give away it’s exciting.

    —Karyn MacKell on February 17, 2017
  • A and B, I have some scraps but I would need to look at my fat quarters as well. I love the patterns in Miss Rosie’s book! Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Lynda Muzyka on February 17, 2017
  • Definitely a. I have more than enough scraps, time to start using them

    —Susan Goodwin on February 17, 2017
  • I’m a B. That’s why my stash is so big! I LOVE fabric.

    —Glenna Pocock on February 17, 2017
  • Scrap quilts are so comforting and can make anyone feel so warm just looking at them. They are my favorites, and I have made many for family and friends. Being scrappy makes the patterns look like they are "dancing" since it keeps the eyes wandering, and it is so much more interesting that way. I am kind of a combo of A and B, but mostly B. This book is incredible. Thank you for this opportunity

    —Mary C. on February 17, 2017
  • Love this book, cannot wait to purchase it!! I want to make the Due South & Raise the Roof quilts right away!! I am between b&c, I don’t have a huge scrap stash, but I do collect fat quarters to use, and going to the quilt shop is always fun!! Thanks for the great book & the chance to win, I love the patriotic bundle, both are beautiful.
    Lisa

    —Lisa on February 17, 2017
  • I’m a big A! But I love nothing better than pulling fabrics for a new projects. It is without a doubt my very favorite part of quilting, no matter the size of the quilt.

    —Renee Welton on February 17, 2017
  • B) first I check out my stash of fat quarters and other fabrics and add from there. This book looks awesome.

    —Teri on February 17, 2017
  • I’m an A. If I have to I’ll get that pull together border or binding at the store later.

    I like the rainbow moda’s the most, and the quilts from the book look fantastic.

    —Lucy on February 17, 2017
  • I’m a B.. always picking up random fat quarters!

    —Chris on February 17, 2017
  • I fall in the A category. I have plenty of scraps and plenty of yardage too. I think I subscribe to, you can never have too much!

    —Nicole on February 17, 2017
  • I start with A as I have enough to supply a couple of quilt shops! I love Miss Rosie books and patterns and have collected quite a few.

    —Christy on February 17, 2017
  • A, though I have lots of scraps (several large storage bins), I am not in the process of cutting all of those in to workable pieces – 5″ and smaller. I can’t wait to see what I have to work with with that task is complete 😀 PS very yummy fabric in the bundles!

    —Becky Schultz on February 17, 2017
  • B.) I see what fat quarters or charm squares I have here and work around those colors and designs.

    —Cindy S on February 17, 2017
  • I definitely head to my scrap bin or just my stash- after quilting for ovr 30 years I have more than enough fabrics to choose from and I LOVE scrap quilts- definitely a "more the merrier" quilter. I could definitely see make several of the quilts in this book- just my style.

    —Wendy on February 17, 2017
  • Hi there,
    Last year I FINALLY corralled most of my smaller scraps into clear plastic shoe box-sized bins by colour. What a difference that has made! I can now just grab a colour-coded box of scraps whenever I feel like playing or designing a new scrap quilt. I even cut a square of that box’s colour (say a yellow square for the yellow box) and fabric glued it to the skinny end of the box. That way I can tell instantly what colour is in the box AND if I ever need that scrap on the outside of the box, I can peel it off and hand rinse it!
    I have also been known to dig through my FQ bins for just the RIGHT colour to use in a scrappy project.
    Thanks a bunch!
    Quilty Huggs!

    —Jacqueline VH on February 17, 2017
  • My oh my. What a beautiful book!I would like to start sewing right now.

    —Dawn Cross on February 17, 2017
  • I get an A on this one! I am a scrapaholic. The more the merrier! But lately I have been collecting fat quarters, so it would be nice to have a book more or less devoted to using them.

    —madeline wallace on February 17, 2017
  • Definitely look at my stash first. I love to "acquire" scraps. Beautiful quilts

    —Ann Holland on February 17, 2017
  • Scraps and fat quarters–these can be overwhelming without a stash of yardage.

    —Kathy on February 17, 2017
  • I make a lot of crib quilts and I really like to find fabric in my scrap boxes that I have used in other quilts especially when the new babies are siblings or cousins.

    —Mary Ann McG on February 17, 2017
  • I love scrappy quilts (though I haven’t completed one yet LOL) I am working on one and am in the process of creating my scrap bin, which is a large plastic storage box right now. But I am in the process of adding to it so I could certainly use more…I guess a is closest to where I’m at right now.

    —Robin on February 17, 2017
  • I’m a C. I love color and fat quarters and color. I like the rainbow collection. I have fabric but not really any scraps yet.

    —Marlene from Torrance on February 17, 2017
  • I go to my closet containing purchased fabric, then check my collection of fat quarters, and then head to the quilt shop! I absolutely LOVE scrap quilts and love Miss Rosie’s books. I have made several of her quilts and I’m going to have to get Farmhouse Favorites.

    —Lynn on February 17, 2017
  • C. Building my stash and scraps so these would be a great addition!

    —Kylie Buttigieg on February 17, 2017
  • I head for my mix of scrap fabric, fat quaters and yardage that are sorted by color in dresser drawers.

    —Virginia Smith on February 17, 2017
  • Between. B&A.
    Enough scraps for a twin else but need. Fat Quarters to round out my plan.

    —Diane B on February 17, 2017
  • I would be a B. I have a bunch of fat quarters I have to start using!

    —Mary on February 17, 2017
  • To make a scrap quilt I have to look for all the hiding places where there are scraps—it’s a fair sized room with two closets-one a walk-in–so there are lots of places to look. Now if only I ever sorted them—by color? by size? by style? by value? So many choices—and that’s why I end up on the treasure hunt every time I want to make a scrap quilt.

    —Martha Dzioba on February 17, 2017
  • I’ve been collecting fat quarters for a sampler quilt for about 10 years! I’m inspired by traditional blocks and the rich muted colors of civil war and classic farm-type quilts.

    —Cathleen Colson on February 17, 2017
  • I guess I’m closest to c) – I’m slowly building a scrap stash, but it’s not very well organized yet! I love the quilt on the cover of Carrie’s new book – as well as several of the others in the book. Thanks for the chance to win both the book and some great fabrics!

    —Judy W. on February 17, 2017
  • For me, it’s mainly A…I head to my scrap stash but sometimes I’ll suppliment with some fat quarters or new fabric, especially if I want more of a certain color.

    —Michelle Eacret on February 17, 2017
  • I head to my scrap baskets and if more fabric is needed I pull out my fat quarter drawers. If I still need more fabric for the project, I cut yardage.

    —Regina on February 17, 2017
  • I’m an "a" with a whole wall of scrap bins!

    Bunny Hand on February 17, 2017
  • C – Someday I will have a stash. But for now – I use fat quarters. Lot’s of inspiration here!

    —Dawn on February 17, 2017
  • I need an "all of the above" . I love my fat quarters and am getting a good scrap bin going, and I have to go the quilt store to make sure I have enough of a color. 😉 My fabric is in drawers, tubs, shelves, and everywhere I can stash it safely. I love the rainbow fabrics and the book looks like it would really inspire me! Great giveaway!

    —Kathie on February 17, 2017
  • I like an organized scrap quilt. I generally go for fat quarters

    —Linda M on February 17, 2017
  • I start with my scraps of fabric first and then move on to fat quarters.

    —Diana R on February 17, 2017
  • I first head to my scrap drawers to see how many pieces I can pull from the precut-width pieces I have collected over the years. Then I head to the larger pieces in my stash to pull what else is needed.

    —Nancy N on February 17, 2017
  • A – i have lots of wonderful fabrics to chose from, but that doesn’t stop me from adding to them.
    Love the rainbow selection of fabrics – they are so me!

    —Carina Z on February 17, 2017
  • Definitely A ……I do have a closet that has all my fabric in it. I bought two different sized bookshelves and put them in to hold my folded fabrics plus plastic storage boxes for scraps of all sizes,

    —Sandi Swindle on February 17, 2017
  • I would have to say I am both an A and B. It all depends on my mood. Since I have lots of scraps and lots of fat quarters, I like to use them both.

    —Donna W on February 17, 2017
  • I am definitely a B person. Have lots of half yardage and fat quarters. Thanks for the chance to win. christatheron@yahoo.com

    —Christa Theron on February 17, 2017

  • a. i had a nice fabric collection and have finished several quilts from my stash. i love the photos spotlighting these quilts.

    —sheryl harrison on February 17, 2017
  • I can go to any spot in my sewing room and find enough different scraps to make a quilt. That is under my work table, on my machine table, in cabinets that are color arranged, and the supply cabinet. I have scraps folded in with the yards of material instead of putting all scraps together in one box or bag. I’m a quilter from the early 1980’s.

    —Joan T on February 17, 2017
  • B is perfect for me! thank you!

    —Lee on February 17, 2017
  • I’m an a for sure. I have lots if scraps organized into 2 closets! Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Gloria Cotten on February 17, 2017
  • I don’t have a scrap pile yet, so I usually use a coordinated line of fat quarters, that way I know the fabrics will go together.

    —Linda Cejnar on February 17, 2017
  • I first head to my stash and may head to the quilt store if I am missing a particular color!

    —Mary R on February 17, 2017
  • A) I shop my stash! Thank you for the chance to win such a great prize. Even if I don’t win, I plan on buying the book. Great scrappy quilts there!

    —Celine K. on February 17, 2017
  • I can’t bear to throw away a scrap so I make crumb blocks from the smallest scraps and use them in charity quilts.

    —Michele on February 17, 2017
  • I am a ‘B’ here as I have just a few scraps in my basket, but I just love me a scrappy quilt. dhardenburg (at) prodigy (dot) net

    —Darrell on February 17, 2017
  • When I do a scrappy quilt I look in my bin of scrapes and add from fat quarters.

    —Linda Christianson on February 17, 2017
  • With the exception of background fabric, a) I head to my scrap bin—which is actually a closet. I have more than enough to work with! Thanks!

    —Lisa Timmer on February 17, 2017
  • I am an AB scrapper. I love color from bright to dark (not necessarily all in the same quilt.) so I want lots of variety of color. Miss Rosie is obviously an expert at selecting a delicious blend of fabrics to create visually stunning quilts.

    —Brenda Kehoe on February 17, 2017
  • I head straight for the closet – that is where the stash is. Both packs of fabric are just beautiful, but I believe the Patriotic is my favorite. Thanks for writing such a beautiful, inspiring book.

    —Linda Klungle on February 17, 2017
  • I check out my scrap stash but also fat quarters. I love Miss Rosie’s quilts in all their forms and snibbles

    —Pam McLellan on February 17, 2017

  • A describes me and I thank you for a chance to win the book and fabric.

    —Patty Bertrand on February 17, 2017
  • I just have to shop in my own sewing closet, but if I see something I just HAVE to have to go with what I have at home, I can’t resist a new ‘scrap’!! I love the quilts that are featured in this post. Thank you.

    —Linda Taylor on February 17, 2017
  • I would use my scraps that I keep in a 6 drawer bin next to my sewing machine. I am always looking for new ideas for scrap quilts. I would love to use up all of these scraps !!!!!

    —Lillian Klaeger on February 17, 2017
  • I’m more like A, but it depends on my purpose. If I’m more in the "charm quilt" style, then a run to the store is absolutely essential!

    —Andrew Kosmowski on February 17, 2017
  • I would head to my fat quarter stash to see what could fine. Then probably stop at my quilt shop to add a few more.😁 Thanks for the give away!

    —Robin Boggan on February 17, 2017
  • I love to pull from my stash (both my father quarters and my yardage) even though I have lots of scraps too. After all my folded stash fabrics are just future scraps right?

    —Shellie on February 17, 2017
  • Are there any other types of quilts besides scrappy? 🙂 Choice A for me. I have plenty of scraps to choose from.

    tushay3 (at) yahoo (dot) com

    —Mary D on February 17, 2017
  • Number 1 describes me. I have boxes and drawers filled with scrapes cut into several sizes. I don’t keep tiny scrapes. FQ are great.

    —nancy seitz on February 17, 2017
  • Me, I go to the scrap bin. Have lots of strings for a string quilt. Then there are the 2-1/2″ strips from all the leftovers. And all the others a bit bigger to make larger blocks. Oh, and the fat quarters. Next are the less than a 1/2 yards and the more than 1/2 yards. lol Then on to the odd yards that I just had to have. :-} pretty.

    —shirley marvin on February 17, 2017
  • I head staight to the stash ~ a couple of closets, a dresser, and large bins. Sigh…it’s true that there is so much beautiful fabric (and quilt designs!) and too little time. Always tempted to buy more; it’s hard to not look at all the new fabric lines!

    —Gail on February 17, 2017
  • I’m a combination of A and B. I have a pretty large stash, but I always need "something else" to go with whatever I choose from it! Love the quilts in the book and can’t wait to try some.

    —Patricia Ludwiczak on February 17, 2017
  • Usually b,although my quilts have usually been gifts or requests from people with set colour preferences so I work within those parameters. For myself I love neutral tones with a splash of colour.

    —Janet G on February 17, 2017
  • I have a large old wicker laundry basket under my cutting table overflowing with my scraps. Patriotic scrap quilts are my favorite! Thanks for the chance to win. I am a fan of Miss Rosie!!!

    —Nadine on February 17, 2017
  • I’m mostly an A, but I’m not above dropping by the quilt shop to add a "just right" fq or two to a scrap quilt…not because I need more fabric, but because scraps become "special" when they start out in favorite quilts.

    —Beth T. on February 17, 2017
  • d) !

    Actually I do have a scrap stash – but I haven’t started anything yet…but Miss Rosie’s quilts are inspiring me to start a project

    Lorraine Mabbett on February 18, 2017
  • Love, love, love scrap quilts. Why use 8 colors in a quilt when you can use 88! I just raid my stash and cut, cut cut.

    —Patricia Bryant on February 18, 2017
  • I have enough scraps but need to go to a few local quilt shops for a few more
    this is inspiring – usually don’t make much with scraps, just wait until too many and then donate them.

    —LizAnn on February 18, 2017
  • I use my scraps and fabric stash, but I can always find a reason to buy a couple more fat quarters or some yardage to make the quilt.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    —Rachel on February 18, 2017
  • I cut pieces from all me fabrics.

    —diann on February 18, 2017
  • I go to my fabric stash. I’m still trying to get my head around the scrapy; you see I’m a perfectionist and scrappy is out of my realm but I keep trying and my easiest so far has been when someone picks the fabric for me.

    —Lisa Kempfert on February 18, 2017
  • I am a B. I use my scraps for applique but like to begin with fat quarters for the main quilt blocks. There are occasions when I will dig through my scraps for a particular color for a quilt block. I absolutely love scrap quilts. The way the colors work together catch my eye. I want to make every quilt in the book! Thank you for the give away.

    —Judy Brun on February 18, 2017
  • I am definitely a type A person. I have plenty of scraps and then I head to my fat quarters if I need a specific color or two. thanks for the pretty giveaways

    —Renea Yarolim on February 18, 2017
  • I like to either use all medium shades or dark shades for the main scrappy part of the design and then usually use a cream or white tone on tone to go with those beautiful scraps.

    —Linda Neldon on February 18, 2017
  • I’m a B it just depends on the scraps I may start with fat quarters then pull for the stash closet. I would like to learn how to make the scraps look like the were meant to be. I really like all the patterns in the book .

    —Kathy Shelton on February 18, 2017
  • I am an A — more scraps than ever — they keep multiplying
    The book looks great — love the quilts.

    —Dorothy M on February 18, 2017
  • It used to be A, with scraps from me and my mil, but need a new infusion of scraps because I’ve been sharing them with students and campers for projects, so I’m now a B.

    —Lynn Clogston on February 18, 2017
  • I start with my fat quarters – I e been collecting them for years. You t se me I always find a few that can h my eye when I’m am in a quilt shop.

    —Susie Ols n on February 18, 2017

  • I like to use my scraps when I can, also have several precuts I made using my go cutter from scraps. Then there are times when I must use some beautiful fat quarters to get the perfect color combinations. Love Miss Rosie’s books. Thanks for this awesome give away.

    —Karen on February 18, 2017
  • I’m an ‘A’ – I head for the scrap bin.

    —Kirsten on February 18, 2017
  • A A A I have scraps and I love to use them. I feel so virtuous when I can say, this quilt didn’t cost a cent, it all came out of scraps. Then my dear husband rolls his eyes cause he knows I’ll have to buy more fabric to replace the scraps. Love Carrie and her books and patterns. Thanks.

    —Mom C on February 18, 2017
  • Periodically,between quilts, I go through some of my stash, arranged partly by color and partly by theme. I freshly iron many pieces. It feels so good just to be handling fabric –and dreaming of quilts to come.

  • I’m more of a "b" person. I’ll start with my stash (larger than one closet) and if it is missing that special something, then I’ll go shopping.

    Joy P on February 18, 2017
  • I started quilting recently, so somewhere between b and c. I love working on scrappy quilts and making them sparkle. Thank you for the inspiration!

    —Susan K on February 19, 2017
  • Most definitely A. Thanks!

    —Joye on February 19, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bin. I have more than I care to admit. I look at the fabrics while keeping my project in mind and select those that I think will go. Then I spread them out on the dining room table (isn’t that what dining rooms are for?) and look at how the fabrics work together. Those that don’t play nice with the others have to go back to the closet.

  • I have a mountain of fabric, so I usually start with the fat quarters and start digging.Your fabric giveaways are beautiful, I would love to start with them to create something.
    Thanks.

  • When I make a scrap quilt I head to my scrap bin. I particularly like two-colored quilts with lots of prints in a single color

    —Anne Werner on February 19, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bins, and under neath my desk, I have those plastic drawers I keep fabrics smaller than fat quarter sizes.

    Even I adore those precuts of designer fabric collections, what I like to make quilts with are fabrics with good memories … left overs from quilts I made a crib quilt for my child, fabric pieces from bottom part of my mom’s sewing basket. I tend to include those pieces when I make quilts for myself to keep.

    —Sanae Lowry on February 19, 2017
  • My fat quarter stash is huge, so I challenge myself to see how I can downsize to create a new spin on a quilt. Love scrap quilts from stash.

    —Rita on February 19, 2017
  • I head to my stacks of precut strips and blocks made from the remnants of projects too small to go back on my shelves.

    —Doris Lum on February 19, 2017
  • I’m between a) and b). I will usually try to work from my stash, however if I don’t have enough of what I want for a particular project, it’s off to the quilt store! I would love to win a copy of Carrie’s new book along with fat quarters she’s selected!!!

    —Julie Barnum on February 19, 2017
  • Love both the bundles but the book is awesome!!

    —MOIRA SHIPPEE on February 19, 2017
  • I’m a B but I’m striving to have a closet full of scraps 🙂

    —Jodie Banks on February 19, 2017
  • A I head to my scrap bin, which involves a couple of closets.

    —Barbara C on February 19, 2017
  • #2 & 3 I head for my fat quarter stash & the quilt shop and am also inspired to start a scrap closet room!!

    —Sylvia Summers on February 19, 2017
  • A for me, but a trip to the quilt store is always invited. 😉

    —Sterling on February 20, 2017
  • B – I have purchased some collections of fat quarters that I particularly like. I will start with them and add on. Thank you, peterstankovich@comcast.net

    Danette Stankovich on February 20, 2017
  • I go to my scrap bin which is housed in 10 drawers, 4 actual bins and several boxes. Choosing scraps is more like weeding out than adding in.

    —Linda Towers on February 20, 2017
  • A and B.

    —Judy B on February 20, 2017
  • I head to my scrap bin and add more form the shops as needed

    Tracey Roberts on February 20, 2017
  • I am a (b). I always check my stash of fat quarters first and then head to a nearby quilt shop. But I keep my stash growing by picking up beautiful fat quarters whenever I see some I love.

    —Cindy Lyons on February 20, 2017
  • Love the quilts in Miss Rosie’s. Which to make first? The bundles would go perfect with what I have. I love scrap quilts, so Miss Rosie’s book is on my list to buy. Thanks so much. Betty Nelson

    —Betty on February 20, 2017
  • I have lots and lots of scraps plus some fat quarters and odd yardages picked up on sale–I do prefer a slightly controlled scrap look–I liked your shades of pink quilt especially!

    —Barb K. on February 20, 2017
  • That would be (a) mostly. It’s not a closet, but if l don’t have enough, it’s time to cull my fabric shelf for more selection. And never to the store because that defeats the purpose of downsizing the stash. Hopefully someone that answers (c) wins this sweet bundle.

    Darlee Byron on February 20, 2017
  • I am definitely A. Those scraps just seem to fill every corner even when they are organized by colour, size, theme, etc. I love every last little scrap. Miss Rosie’s book looks wonderful. Thanks for the opportunity to possibly win a copy.

    —Audrey on February 20, 2017
  • I am an A scrap quilter. I always buy more for fillers. The book looks wonderful! Thanks for all the inspiration!

    —Mary Anne Flowers on February 20, 2017
  • I think I’m a B….best of both worlds!

    —Deb on February 20, 2017
  • I am a bit of all three. I do have some scraps, but not a whole closet full! I use fat quarters or buy some fabric I think I might need, and because of these lovely quilts in the book I think I could use more scraps!

    —Jacqueline on February 21, 2017
  • Always check material on hand. If nothing suitable, go to the fabric store.

    —Frances Scott on February 21, 2017
  • Definitely (b) for me. I just love Miss Rosie’s quilts..they make me want to snuggle up with one on a cold night.
    Sue

    —Sue on February 21, 2017
  • Definitely A. I keep all my scraps in a separate bin. Also strips and ends of strips and bindings in their own bin. Always close at hand.

    —Leslie on February 21, 2017
  • B seems to be the best option, but if a "D" was available saying that a colour choice was needed to be selected, all of the choices would be played with until a satisfying tone was compiled for completing one of the quilts

    —Monica E Kovach on February 21, 2017
  • All of these patterns are so inspiring! Just wish my scraps were better organized so I could dive in and create.

    —Linda on February 21, 2017
  • A for me – sometimes I need to shop for fillers…from my sister’s stash. 🙂 Love, love, love Carrie’s designs and choice of colors!

    —Jo on February 21, 2017
  • Definitely A. I have many pieces of fabric of various sizes sorted by color.
