I love scraps and can envision that it was me standing at my cutting board sorting my scraps. Except that I sort by colour. I like your video. It was fun to hear your voice and a novel subject. Thanks for a chance to win your scrap giveaway.

I signed up or your newsletter. Thanks for sharing you lovely scraps

Donna Joy March 16, 2012 at 8:21 PM  

It would be nice to watch a video on needle turn appliqué.
But if you know other methods of appliqué that would make a great video as well.

Richard Healey March 17, 2012 at 12:59 AM  

I sadly do not watch much video's mostly don't have time for it too busy at work and other. But I have sat and watched a couple FMQ videos though I fast forward though some of it.

I loved to check on video with step by step instruction.. Thanks for offering your scraps to us..

Jodi March 17, 2012 at 9:41 AM  

I am very new to quilting and haven't actually watched many quilting video's. I find them a little over whelming as there is so much of the basics I am still learning.

tubilinha tiacarminha March 17, 2012 at 11:16 AM  

me tornei seguidora.os tecidos são bonitos e variados.Muito obrigada. tiacarminhapezzuto@gmail.com

B Greene March 17, 2012 at 11:23 AM  

Scraps are my very favorite thing - almost better than yardage... isn't that weird??? I would LOVE to win your giveaway!! I tend to watch videos to learn how to do one specific thing. I am more comfortable with written instructions or pictorials for step-by-step, but I haven't watched enough videos of full projects to really judge.

Thanks for the giveaway!!

I love working with scraps. This would be so cool to win. I like to watch videos on techniques mostly. I watch a lot of you tube for that reason.

Sharon March 17, 2012 at 1:07 PM

ritainalaska March 17, 2012 at 1:55 PM  

i watch the tutorials and how-to's that i think will help me to do something better than the way i do things. i watch alot of them ... sigh.
i'm waiting towatch your vid - it's telling me to come back later to watch.

ritainalaska March 17, 2012 at 1:57 PM

ritainalaska March 17, 2012 at 2:10 PM  

got my turn at your vid on scraps! i paw through my bins for my applique but now will do some sorting! liked the looks of your scraps and your way of sorting. good video!

strandkorbtraum March 17, 2012 at 2:12 PM  

I'm probably going to be disqualified for saying I never watched a quilting video. I just can't remember what happens in videos, like ooking shows, floral whatevers (the kind you get on TV). I love my paper versions that I can prop up on my bookstand and then turn the pages to my speed.
But maybe I should start watching videos.

MC March 17, 2012 at 2:31 PM  

I watch a lot of tutorial videos, most often from the Misouri Star Quilt Co. and Leah Day.

MC March 17, 2012 at 2:34 PM  

I liked your video. I love fabric scraps!

sandyb March 17, 2012 at 3:47 PM

My Sister Made Me Do It.... March 18, 2012 at 7:22 PM  

I signed up for your newsletter. I noticed in your video that all your scraps were already cut into squares, rectangles, or circles.........mine are a mess! I guess before the sorting process I'd better cut them into shapes first..........thanks for the chance to win those too cool scraps of yours!

My Sister Made Me Do It.... March 18, 2012 at 7:23 PM  

I like the tutorials with lots of pictures and the "how-to's" thanks for the opportunity to win.

Sarah W March 18, 2012 at 8:31 PM  

Hi - I would enjoy tutorials with techniques rather than "this is how to make 1 quilt block". Like - a series of short tutorials that list all the ways to do flying geese, or binding.

Jodi March 21, 2012 at 4:07 AM  

I love scraps! I'm saving to make a scrap quilt and I'm going to try and not have any repeats. Watched your video and you are right. You can't be in a lovie-dovie mood or nothing gets thrown away. I remind myself as well to clear out so I'll have room for the new.

Thank you for your giveaway and a chance to win.

Hmm... I don't do quilting videos... The last one I tried was about free-motion quilting, and that was OK, but something just doesn't click... maybe because I'm self-taught? Hmm...

I like both technique and tutorial videos. Thanks for joining in the Blog Hop Party Giveaway.
