This Post Is Brought To You By....Scraps

Scraps are treasures. Sheree sent me a box of scraps from a giveaway and when they arrived I decided that I would make something to share the love...kinda like an unofficial pay it forward. I think Sheree likes pink because there was an abundance of pink scraps in the box, so this is what I came up with:
before quilting...
after quilting and a wash and dry...
The quilts are pink, pink sun, pink clouds, pink back, pink binding. Everything from scraps (Sheree's and mine)...even the background is a scrap from an old tablecloth. Thanks Sheree! If only I had a little girl, or even a pink room, I'd keep this in an instant, but alas, I don't. So, if you'd like this to come to your house, let me know where it might go or who you might give it to. I'll draw a name randomly on Friday. If you left a comment on Ben's blog, consider yourself entered and feel free to enter again! It's 25 x 22.
I made more houses too....I'm up to 21....these all need their sashing.
I might want to live in the Frank Lloyd Wright inspired one.
Amy's blocks are done for her month in the Common Threads virtual quilting bee. Again, fun blocks to make. These range from 2 inches to 6.5 inches.
I'm done making small quilts for a bit. Mostly I've done them to practice with my machine. It's time to break out the big quilts and get them under that machine.

Speaking of scraps and treasures...you should see Penny's 'Scraps to Treasure' quilt. Stunning! I'm working on my scraps to treasure project this week too.

Oh, how cute! Enter me! And that scrap quilt is stunning! Can't wait to see yours!

jodi @ Pleasant Home said...

Aren't Sheree's scraps awesome! I made a cute little wonky house mini quilt with mine! Oh so fun. I love your clothes line! Oh so cute! I must win. Musn't I? Yes I think I should. I'm loving your house blocks too! I'll be making several of those myself over the next few months. Can't wait to get started. Have a Happy Week Jacquie! P.S. Today is the official day of starting to run again. Wish me luck!

Stephanie said...

I couldn't give it away if I won so I'd have to be selfish and keep it! Originals by Jacquie!!! I'm truly considering painting an accent wall in the basement pink...when I move my sewing space down there. LOVE your houses. Hubby loves Frank Lloyd Wright that's on our "to see" list when we visit Chicago this weekend.

Michelle said...

I would definitely give the quilt to my daughter. She loves playing with scraps. The houses are so cute. I love all of them that I have seen popping up on various blogs.

Tonya said...

I love your clothes line quilt. I would have to give it to my little girl who LOVES pink! Wow, I can't believe you are giving away a quilt. This is such an awesome giveaway. Thank you! I love your house blocks too!

PS Who is Ben?

Tonya said...

Oops never mind. I just remembered Ben is your son, and he has a blog for his band. I had stopped by last week, but I didn't leave a comment. Anyway, sorry for the lapse in memory. I am a very regular reader.

Barbie said...

Wow, Jacquie you made an art piece with scraps! I know my little 3-year old daughter would love a pink clothesline of quilts in her bedroom, so please enter me in your draw. I can't wait to see your house blocks come together. Beautiful!

MelissaS said...

Please consider me entered!

Scraps are good things, aren't they?

Nancy said...

I love the cute scrapiness! I think it would be cute hanging in a laundry room. Thanks for sharing.

Cheryl said...

My daughter would LOVE that quilt! And THANK YOU so much for the quilted block! It's so beautiful. It's going on my sewing room wall ASAP.

Kieny The Dutchlady said...

Your pink quilt is lovely; such a simple design but so effective. I love how the background has come to life after you quilted it. Love the houses too.

Linda said...

That is so darn adorable, I think I'd give it to my brand new grand daughter to hang on her wall.

I Love Baby Quilts! said...

I left a comment encouraging Ben and i'm leaving another one here! I love the Wright inspired house, and I love the little scrap quilt scrap quilt. Lol!

Amy said...

With two little girls here...I'm sure the pink will fit in perfectly here!!! I LOVE these laundry line quilts you make..simply adorable!

Make Do & Mend said...

Ohh how funny, today i blogged about scraps too, must be unofficial scrap Monday! I love your quilt, very like the sky here in the Chiltern Hills in England today, i'd love to win this, i'd give it to my scrap loving daughter Lara Belle (aged 6) to inspire her already growing creativity with scraps!

Sequana said...

That Wright house made me smile.
*S* Just sitting there so smug.

LaNell said...

I've had a home office for years but the work demands have slowed and the creative me is chomping at the bit to stop dreaming and start creating. Your little pink beauty is the perfect color and just the inspiration I need.

Laura said...

Very sweet quilt! I've got a little two-year old that would love it in her room. Thank you for your inspiring website!!

connie said...

I would love a Jacquie quilt!!! I would hang it in my laundry room which is just off my studio.

I just think scraps are the best!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

Oh Gosh JAcquie. I love them all so much. You truly do inspire me. Sometimes I dream an idea and I come here and you've already got it on fabric!

Kigwit said...

If you gave it to me I would give it to my four year old son. His favorite color is pink and he tells me about his pink house that has a tiny keyhole for a pink key. The best part about the pink house is that there is a "nee-nee room"-a sewing room for the two of us that has a big table for me and a smaller table for him. My DH asked if he could have a table in our "nee-nee" room but DS shut him out. It's just for the two of us to work on our projects.

It's a great idea for scraps. I love how the quilts look like they are blowing on the line.

Cheryl Arkison said...

If you move into that house I might have to come and visit...

Yay for big quilts!

Purple and Paisley said...

my boo would adore this little quilt! she is into all things pink and girly...and every day? she wishes the sun a good morning...seriously...she wishes the moon a good night, too...i left a comment for ben the other day...giggle...poor thing getting comments from all of his mom's friends! ☺

Paige Marie said...

I am so glad that I stumbled across your blog! If I won the quilt I would use it for inspiration. Just like I use your blog for inspiration. :) Thank you so much for sharing all of your great ideas!

Diva Quilts said...

Pink is the new black... ;)

Actually, pink is my favourite colour, so I would LOVE to win this!

Can't wait to see your "big quilts". :D

Teresa C said...

Oh, please enter me, I would give this to my newest little friend, Eloise. She joined us on the 25th of October, her mom's birthday. After three days of labor, a c-section, difficult with the incision, and almost leaving us with a horrible hemorrhage, mom and daughter are finally home and getting to know each other. It has been a long ten days and this quilt would bring more pink sunshine into their lives.

Poppyprint said...

Sweet, sweet scraps! Let's see, if I were to be the lucky recipient, I might share with my pink-loving niece, or formerly pink-loving-but-moved-onto-blue daughter, or maybe it will join my other mini-quilts on my sewing room wall. It might have to live several lives! Thanks for the giveaway Jacquie.

Julie said...

Well, you've met my daughter so you know that I'd have to give it to her! She is a quilter too although more free form. So this sort of quilt would be good inspiration for her. Thanks Jacquie. You inspire both Kate and me!!!
Julie

krmccord said...

It would look so cute hanging in my laundry! I love the scrap quilt! It's awesome!!

Anina said...

Pink is my favorite color so I gasped when I saw this one.
I'd pick the FLW house too.

Two Dogs and a Quilt said...

I think the quilts on the line are a perfect variation on your laundry theme! So perfect for a little girl.

Kathy said...

I have two daughters (5 and 6) who share a pink room. This quilt would be a perfect addition. Also, they were introduced to quilting this weekend by their Aunt and helped sew dolls and hand sewed quilts for their dolls. Now, they want a sewing maching. One daughter has decided she will sew only and the other will sew and knit (she has learned knitting also). Great to start them at a young age. I have decided I would like to learn to quilt so I've been lurking, enjoying your beautiful quilts!

Becca said...

Soooooooooooooo beautiful.
I dream of having a little girl with a pink bedroom and this little pink quilt would be perfect! : )

It's lovely.
Really.
Very very inspiring.

xoxo.

Jilly said...

That is such a sweet little quilt! I am expecting in November, and if I have a girl (after two boys) I would hang it up over her change table so she can enjoy it. If I have a boy, I would give it to my god daughter for her birthday. I think the pretty pinks would look great against the bright green walls in her bedroom.

Kristine said...

Oooohhh, please enter me! I love, love your laundry quilts! I have twin 14-month-girls, and this would look amazing hanging over their dresser in their room! What an awesome giveaway!

Chris said...

I'm thinking that is just too pretty & would be perfect for my utility room. I'm obsessive about hanging washing on the line;(- it makes me feel unbelievably happy!) I'm dreading the winter when it happens infrequently but this would be a beautiful reminder of happier washing days!
Chris x

silversmith said...

if i were to win this adorable little quilt, i'd give it to a friend of mine who just had twin baby girls. she's all about pink for those little two after having a boy who is ALL boy.

Heather said...

Oh my dear goodness gracious!!! I think I would pee my pants if I received this adorable wall hanging! (Its a chance I am willing to take though! :-) I am moving in December, and I will have my own LAUNDRY ROOM in my new house!! Since I will be spending A LOT of time in that little room, it would be PERFECT in there!

MichelleB said...

Your mini scrap quilt is just darling! I love your houses, too. I'm getting ready to try some for a swap quilt. I hope they look as great as your houses!

QuiltedSimple said...

Ok. This is way too cute! And it would be so cute in Jessie's pink bedroom:)
Kris

Nicole said...

I love the laundry quilts you've made. They are adorable. If I won this one I would give it to my mother in law in Egypt. They don't use dryers there, but everything goes on the clothesline! And its always sunny too. Nice work.

pattynubs said...

I love the little quilt with the quilts flapping in the breeze. i would hang it in my studio beside the one I purchased from Robin at simplyrobin and the space for my piece that will be coming from Lisa Call. I know it would just make me happy to look at it every day!

Evelyn said...

Oh, that's gorgeous! I'd love to have it for my little girl's room. Though I'd have a hard time not hanging it in my sewing room instead!

Mrs Moen said...

Oh, I would love that cute pink quilt!

I would give it to my daugther who is just moving out on her own again with her little boy, and just loooves pink.

shellysquilts said...

Cute stuff Jacquie! I luv it all! Well done!

Brenda said...

it's lovely and fun and joyful. I'd love a chance to hang it in my house. thanks for the opportunity.

jessica said...

How beautiful! I love this line of mini quilts that you have created :-).

Heather said...

How cute is that!!! I would put it on my laundry room door, so that everyone could see - so cute!!!

Valerie said...

So many pretty things to see on your blog (and holy cow, 2 inch blocks???)

If that gorgeous little wash day mini came to live at my house it would hang in my pink-loving princess's bedroom (even though I would l-o-v-e to have it hang in my office... but I know how much she'd love it)

Lisa said...

I love the pink...and happen to have a daughter with a pink room, so I'd put it there. Enter me, please!

Michelle said...

I love pink and would love to win the giveway!

Greta said...

Oh I love it! I have been eyeing your clothesline quilts for a while and they always look great. I am starting a new job next week and I think this would be a great way to personalize my small cube. I have been thinking for a while now about how I could make that small space personal and incorporate something I love. I had been toying with the idea of making a small wall quilt for the space but have been to busy tackling the things on my to do list before returning to work. This would be just perfect because it would capture my love of quilts and the color pink all in one place :) I left Ben a comment too I know he is excited about the experience and what a great thing for him.

Anna said...

I love it! With two girls I'm sure we'd put it in their room.

janice in reno said...

The laundry quilt is so cute well actually all of your quilts have inspired me to get back to my quilting roots. Ive spent the weekend in my pink and green sewing room trying to put order to all my stash (my hubby is always teasing me that I could open a fabric store with all my fabric) This would be so cute on my wall or on the wall of my girls bedroom. ( I have 3 girls and they share the same room, they also do all the laundry) Thank you for all the great ideas! Yours is probably my favorite blogspot.

greetingarts said...

Jacquie, that is so beautiful! What a generous soul you are. My pink-loving girls are requesting one just like it, I'm going to have to dig through my pink scraps and see what happens. Love your houses, they are so fun and seem very freeing, if you know what I mean...

Aimee said...

I just love your clothes line quilts - they are to die for. I have 3 little girls who would fight over it! Gorgeous & sooooo generous of you!

Patty said...

If I were to win the give-a-way I would put it in my daughter’s room to go with the other miniature quilts we have been slowly working on. Pink is such a perfect “girl” color and would match my daughter’s curtains perfectly!

Blue Is Bleu said...

I have a two year old niece who's just moved into a new bedroom and that would look wonderful on her wall :)

Love the houses, and the fact that they're so varied!

Vicki said...

It's super cute!

I'm finishing up the binding on my last Project Improv quilt--should be done today!

Jenny said...

Now this is a pink quilt my daughter would go for! I've tried pink for her and she always tells me its too much, but THIS quilt she would hang proudly on her bedroom wall! Thanks so much for the chance, it really is a very darling quilt!!

Sherry said...

With a house full of two little girls - we are big fans of pink. This quilt is just wonderful - i spend so much time planning and dreaming (and honestly afraid to cut) that I get nothing done.

Heidi said...

I LOVE this little quilt! It would look so pretty in my Laundry room - I've been planning a makeover in there and this would match beautifully!

Suzanne said...

I'm always looking to add pink to my life since my family is all boys. I learn so much from your blog and admire your willingness to share both your successes and your "learning experiences." I'm glad I saw your quilt because my washer and dryer have been running since dawn.

Donnelly said...

How sweet this is! I would be selfish and keep it for myself. I would hang it in my bedroom.
Have a great day.

jackie said...

I've just spent a few minutes catching up. How exciting for Ben, but "oh my"! I can only imagine the swirl of emotions that mom you must be having. Also, I know that these are the kinds of things in store for me in a few years....
So much inspiration here - as usual I love everything you are up to. The improv houses - LOVE!!

Lynn said...

If I won this quilt - I'd keep it for myself and I would put it in my laundry room. I spend a lot of time in my laundry room ( A LOT of time). I'd hang it over where I do my ironing and I would look at it and it would make me happy. And plus it may remind me to bring in the sheets off the line because I have a bad habit of forgetting to do that. With all of it's cherry pinky goodness it would bring a new joy to the drudgery of laundry.

Sew Much More said...

Would it be too selfish to want to keep it for myself? I just love your quilts Jacquie. I don't think I could part with it if I won.

Camille said...

Are you kidding? Just hang it in my studio and smile at it while I sew. LOVE it! Here's hoping!

trashalou said...

Once again reading blogs means I find the BEST stuff. My girl would love that quilt if you are posting internationally.

RosaMarĂ­a said...

I love your little quilt! It would look so pretty in my sewing room !! thanks for sharing!!!

amandajean said...

i love your houses! also love the wall hanging, but don't enter me in the draw. i have a wallhanging from you already. :)

Lynz said...

I adore that mini quilt! If I were lucky enough to win I would give it to my 7 year old daughter - pink is her very special favourite colour and she shares my love of quilts!

gottimmers said...

love love love your quilts

Asiyah said...

Oh boy would I ever! My little Olivia Grace would love this. She's only 2 but carries her favorite stuffed animal (Senor Frog) around like a burrito. This one would go on the wall though...

Thanx!

Ginny said...

Oh my!! After having 2 boys, I'm lloving the pink!! I would hang it in Gwen, my baby girls bedroom. I'm going to cross my fingers and my toes!!

upstateLisa said...

Oh Jacquie, that quilt is soooo cute! I would love it in my sewing room! and I just adore all those houses!

Melissa K said...

I believe you made this just for my guest room, which will one day become the nursery (let's just hope I have a girl so I don't have to repaint). The colors are perfect!

Kristi said...

I love the quilts on the washing line--it is SO cute. I'd love to hang it up for my girls. What a super giveaway!

Janet said...

This would be so cute hanging in one of my grandnieces (4) room. Please pick me.

Doris said...

I have a new great-niece coming in 2010, this would be adorable in her nursery. But then again, it would look pretty darn cute in my quilt studio as well!

Erin, Kaitlyn and Henry said...

Oh boy oh boy, that would go great with my little Julia's red and white sock monkey bedding. It is so cute. I am loving your houses quilt too. Great work, you are an inspiration.

Betty Crocker Ass said...

So cute! My daughter wants me to make her one...I told her maybe we'll get lucky and win one! Mama has a lot on her sewing table right now!

Amber Hansen said...

Please enter me! I would love to give this to my sister-in-law for her new little baby girl!

Kelly O. said...

I think my laundry room could really use this quilt!!! I could use this quilt!!!
you can send it to me now and avoid the whole random number thing--I mean what a nuissance right?
no--just send it to me. I'll give it a new home.

thanks for the chance to win!

Debra said...

awww...so darn cute...love the pink, always have actually..nothing to do with having two girls and i think this would be hard to give away but i think my beautiful little gd would be the receiver of this...your houses are divine...love them..happy day :)

Jill said...

Another beautiful clothesline! I love all those little scraps!

You are such a bad influence with those tiny little houses. Must restrain myself...must not start ANOTHER project. :)

Kerri said...

jacquie, that is such a sweet pink quilt!! i love the little patchwork quilts hanging!! i will be crossing my fingers and legs in hope to be the winner.

sewdeerlyloved at hotmail dot com

thanks so much for the chance!

Jen said...

This is so pretty - and way past my quilting abilities! Most definitely, it would go in my daughter's bedroom. She's moving out of my older DS's room and reclaiming her own room. Much to DH and my confusion, she LOVES pink (and is very much a girlie girl, which I am not...)

Katelyn R. said...

Those houses are ADORABLE! And the mini quilt even cuter!

Marilyn said...

If I won your ADORABLE clothesline quilt I could not bear to part with it! I would keep it for myself and hang it in our guest/grandbaby room...and it would look gorgeous in there:)

Your little houses are so cute--it's going to be a great quilt!!

Cardygirl said...

Gorgeous fun quilt. Love the houses too!

Mama Gast said...

Ohhh, that would looks so cute in my baby girl's room! I love it!

chaletgirl said...

Oh! You'd give this away? This is adorable!

I painted my baby girl's room a lovely warm blue so I could add lots of pink without the room looking sickly sweet. This would look so beautiful on her wall!

Kim said...

Absolutely too cute! I've never won a quilt giveaway but am hoping there's a first time for everything :-)

Mindy said...

I love it! And I would love to win. It would look perfect in my 4 month old girl's room. She likes quilts - she has told me so a couple of times now.

Leah said...

I wish I had the vision to make something as delightful as your washing line with my scraps!

If it came to my house, my 5yr old daughter would most definately take it for herself as she LOVES pink xx

Trisha said...

I would hang it in my laundry room if I were lucky enough to win it. My laundry room connects to my powder room. The bathroom is pink and green. It would go perfectly in the laundry room!

So cute and love those houses too!

littlecumulus said...

oh, I love it! the houses, too....I am starting to think of doing one of those myself (in addition to the 20,000 other projects i've started...)

Carol said...

my laundry room is pink! would be perfect!

carrie said...

Oh, that little clothesline quilt is beautiful!! I would give it to my four-year-old daughter for hanging in her room - I think she'd love it as much as I do. Thanks for the giveaway and all the inspiration on your blog! :)

Amber said...

It's absolutely adorable Jacquie! We've been hanging doll quilts in the girls' room and it would be amazing to have one of yours!! I need to get going on Amy's blocks too!

liz at olliekate said...

Oh, it is so lovely! I would quickly hang this in my little girl's room who is always in pink, always! Thanks for the giveaway!
Liz

kz said...

This is so cute! I love how the "scraps" turned out! Thanks for the giveaway...

Anonymous said...

What lovely work! thanks for passing along your giveaway winnings! I could hang this in my daughters room, or my niece who is ready to welcome her 4th brother!! but quite honestly, I would be very tempted to hang it in my own laundry room!!
Thanks for the chance.

Terriaw said...

I love every single one of your laundry quilts! I especially love the pink theme of this one. What an excellent way to use scraps. (which I need to start working on too!)

Nichole said...

Love it! I'm still reeling over your last laundry line quilt and now this stunning one. Be still my heart! So fun and original. I would put this in my daughter's bedroom - she loves pink and it would look so cute. Thanks for the great giveaway!

pklaw said...

I so love all your quilts. They are very inspirational. Your color combinations - what can I say! What would I do if I won your quilt? Although I would like to keep it for myself I'm sure my two granddaughters will have other ideas!

Alice Grace said...

Oh, I would love to win this to give to my little great granddaughter, Alyssa! Pink is her very favorite color!
Love your work! The houses are awesome, also!

Jackie said...

Jacquie, I so love this clothesline quilt! This one would definitely go to my little niece/godchild. She is turning five and would be perfect for you. What a wonderful job you did with the scraps. Love the houses too!

Jody said...

Love it Jacquie! I would definitely want my little girl to have it .. she's 18 months! Love your work...very inspiring!
jodym7@yahoo.com

JenniferH said...

I would take it to my office!

Megan said...

oooooh, do I have a girl that would love all that pink (and I could be talking about myself--but I know my daughter would want first dibs!). Beautiful, simple, so charming, charming, charming. And the little houses are making me very happy, too! Thanks for sharing!

janelle said...

Awww...! I just love those little pink quilts on the clothesline. My little girl, almost 3, is getting her own room soon and wants me to paint it pink of course, so it would go in there for sure. So sweet; I love it!

Lavina Dee said...

I love the pink scrappy quilt. I would keep that baby all to myself. I am the lone female in my home and I could use a pink.

Kirsten said...

I love all your clothes line quilts, actually I love anything you do . . . love your new machine . . . studio . . . etc. We adopted two infants two years ago and life has been such a blur until now that I am just starting to have time to sew for their rooms. The pink clothes line quilt would look wonderful in my 2 year old daughters room! I started one for the boys room with waders like you did in Ray's . . . thanks for all the inspiration!

calicodaisy said...

I would give it to ..... ME! I'm crazy to have one of your items.
-- michele

Susan said...

How adorable. This would look adorable in my daughters room

Jennifer said...

What a great idea for scraps--I love it! If I won, I'd put it in my 20-month old daughter's room, to complement the three other quilts, all gifts, that adorn her room. My goal is to raise her to love quilts and even make some of her own like mama, *grin*!

Kathryn said...

You come up with such great things out of scraps. It is inspiring me to take a class soon and try some things myself. For now, I am a beginning beginner and loving your stuff!

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

I know I tell everyone kindness is my number one rule, BUT, I love pink, I have it all over my studio, I love your work and to be KIND and honest. I would SOOOO keep it, if I were the lucky winner.

I think someone eles's scraps are the best! sometimes all you need is a little and see what you get. You know I love your houses, but I also love Amy's blocks. thanks for this wonderful giveaway!!

Britta said...

This quilt is beautiful. I can't believe that you could part with it. I would hang it in my sewing room for inspiration.

Melissa said...

Oh, that closeline quilt is so darling. I would want it for my laundry room but I bet my daughter would want it in her room.

Amy - Park City Girl said...

So cute Jacquie! I love all the pink, it would go in the pink room that 2 of my girls share :)
Your houses are adorable too!

memmu said...

What a fabulous giveaway!!!

I've got 2 boys myself so we don't have much pink around the house. But my little goddaughter would love that quilt!!! I'd be happy to give it to her... she just turned 1 :).

Rose said...

I have a little girl that would probably get it, or I might just hang it on the wall and inhale a bounce sheet while I stare at it all day...great giveaway, pick me, pick me!!! lol.

Isa said...

I love your house blocks!
And the washing line with the quilts is absolutely addorable. I think I would hang it in my sewing room, if I were to win it :-)

KnitOneQuiltTooKristin said...

This little quilt is so charming. Even though I'm not a big fan of pink, I'm sure I could find a place for it in my sewing room or perhaps with a neice of mine. What a great use of all those scraps!

nicolette said...

I’m into pink lately! Love your little quilt!

The houses are awsome!

mksumo said...

I would love to hang it in my sewing room which is really a small corner of the living room. But it would look great near the big window my sewing machine is set up.

I am loving your houses. I am very tempted to have a go at some 'free forming' houses. It will be a big leap of faith for me though.

zarina said...

This would be just great for my 6yo niece who just loves pink to pieces. we can hang it up on her wall and think of me (and you) if we do get our hands on it.

2ndAvenueStudio-Rachel said...

If I win it will go to a pre natal clinic and given to a new mother or mother to be.
enter me in the drawing! Please!

Julie Antinucci said...

i would give it to my 6 yo daughter. she's been recovering from whooping cough for 5 weeks and would love it in her room!

Ruth's Place said...

It's adorable. If I won, I'd give it to my two-year old who is a total girly girl. I'd hang it in her room.

badzoe said...

My little girls are going to be sharing a room soon, so I would hang the quilt in their room. I'm having another baby in a couple of months, so if it is another girl, all three girls could admire the quilt.

henny said...

very cute, Jacquie..
I have a girl here, hope I could win that treasure :)

Rebekah said...

I really like your clothes on the line quilts, but I think I like your quilts on the line quilts even more. This is so adorable!

Q said...

If I won the clothes line quilt I would put it on my red wall in the laundry area. I love your work! Thanks for the inspiration.

Heather said...

I love your inspiration! I love your little houses. I do have a little girlie, but I think it would better suit her little cousin's room--all pink and black and amazingly gorgeous due to a designer mother. Thank you for sharing!

sara said...

i would love a chance to win this quilt. I would hang it in my laundry room in sunny florida where we just moved 3 months ago - on somewhat of an adventure, like ben. but with our 2 small boys! I don't get any pink either, but i'd love to have some in my laundry room or my craft room : ) I love these little treasures! You inspire me so much - I can't wait to show you the modern sailboat quilt i'm working on for my boys! thanks for blogging!
Sara

bellsjo said...

Oh it is beautiful! What a delicious little quilt! Well if I won it it would go to my son - he is 5 and loves the colour pink. Whilst outside of the home peer pressure has finally won and he tells everyone he does not like pink, at home he still admits a real fondness for it! Thanks for the chance to win such a lovely giveaway.

Ashley said...

very very cute! (i have some of those same scraps from sheree!) If I won, I'd definitely have to keep it for myself - I don't yet have a quilt made by anyone else!

love your houses too - can't wait to see that quilt finished!

What a sweet little quilt! I would have to decide between placing it in one of my daughters' rooms or in my laundry room, which I'm trying to spruce up so it's more enjoyable to be in there. :-) Chances are good that the girls' rooms would win.

those are great scraps! i'd probably hang your quilt in my laundry room - nothing like a spot of cheer for sometimes cheerless chores. :) -bess

I stumbled upon your blog a couple of months ago and you inspired me to get bernie tuned up and active again after a 5 year vacation. If I won it would hang over my desk reminding me every day where my inspiration came from. Thank you for sharing. I love tuning into your blog. monique

I have loved your clothesline quilts for a long time! I would love this little pink cutie for my sewing space.

Jacque. said...

Hey Jacquie...a long admirer (stalker) and reader of your blog...I love everything you do. That pink clothesline quilt is so dang precious, I just cannot stand it! My granddaughter, Kaylynn, age 4, is such a girly girl and would love that! Great giveaway! The houses are very fun, don't you think?

Cami said...

I love it! Super cute with all the pinks, and even better that it is all scraps. I think I'll start saving my scraps just for an occasion such as this. If it came to my home, it would have it's very own wall in my sewing room where it would give off endless inspiration. Love it!

The Retired Mama said...

A very cute quilt indeed. I am partial to small quilts, and I love pink. Thank-you for the opportunity to own it.

Kath said...

I loved your earlier clothesline quilt and this one too. My sewing room isn't all coordinated, but when I add something to it, I always choose shades of pink to red to burgundy (it started with the burgundy paisley comforter on the spare bed in my sewing room). I'd smile every time I saw your happy scrap clothesline hanging on my wall.
Thanks so much,

It is beautiful! I would give it to my super-sweet daughter. Just a moment ago when I was reading your post she walked by, took a look at your lovely pink quilt and said, "Cool sun!".

Mearaid said...

You make the cutest quilts!

simplysewn said...

Oh, how lovely! These little quilts remind me of summer days when my mom would have me hang the laundry. The sheets would blow in the breeze and later that night I'd smell the fresh air in my bed. Good memories. I'd love to hand this in my sewing room. I've got a blank spot right on the wall in front of my sewing table. It would be great inspiration! Thanks for sharing. Beth

bekhy said...

Oooh...the laundry quilt is lovely! I would love to hang it in my guest/sewing room, which is right across from the laundry room :). The cheerfulness is greatly needed, as the sewing room is in the basement under a porch.

em's scrapbag said...

I would love to hang this in my sewing/washroom to remind me of a truly inspiring friend.
Also thanks to you and your son my boys were pretty amazed I knew who The Devil Wears Proda was and that I knew someone involved with the band. Not such a fuddy duddy after all.

Tricia said...

That laundry line quilt reminds me of summers at my grandma's in Michigan! Thanks for reminding me how simple and creative one can be in quilting. I would love to share it with my daughter.

Jeanette said...

Love the laundry line quilt! So darling.

And I absolutely LOVE your little houses, I think the FLW is my fave too, I never would have even thought of that! But it's perfect. I can't wait to see the finished quilt.

I also love your swap blocks, you are just full of awesomness!

Paula Clare said...

I have a little girl. And a pink room! I'd love the quilt. But mostly, I just want to say you really *are* full of awesome: the quilt, the houses, the blocks! And the generosity.

Jessica Christensen said...

I love your laundry quilts so much. I would love this one. My girls' room is pink -- and for that matter, so is their bathroom. It would be a perfect fit either place. Your work is phenomenal. I've never commented before, but I check your blog often. I love to see what you're up to.

Jane said...
