Win a copy of our new quilt book, Bits & Pieces!
1.20.2015

This contest is now closed. Thank you so much to all who participated. If you’d like to purchase a copy of our Bits and Pieces book, click here. And remember, our book sale ends 2/16/15.

I am brimming with excitement over our latest quilt book, Bits and Pieces. As a huge fan of scrappy quilts, I loved the idea of compiling a group of patterns that use precuts to achieve a scrappy look. Precuts really do save so much time!

Bits and Pieces book by Connecting Threads.

When we sat down to brainstorm the theme for this book, there was certainly no shortage of ideas and directions we could go. We knew that we wanted the book to feature some of our favorite patterns – both new and old – but with so many beautiful options to choose from, we needed to pick a theme for the book that would help narrow down our options. This may sound easy, but trust me, it took a long time. Finally, after sorting through hundreds of patterns, we selected a stack of options that we all agreed on, and after looking through the stack again, we had identified our theme: scrappy looking projects that are precut friendly!

Something that was really important to our team was that we had a project for all skill levels, and that different project types were well represented. Some of my favorite projects from the book are shown below.

Ribbon Candy Quilt by Connecting Threads

Starshine Quilt by Connecting Threads

As an added bonus, many of the projects in the book are offered with alternative colorway suggestions to make it easier for you to pull from your stash. After months of hard work – editing pages, sewing projects, photographing the finished quilts – we were finally ready to send the pages off. A few short weeks later, we had this lovely book in our hands. I can’t tell you how good that felt!

Now comes the fun part… We love this book so much that we want to give away three copies of it! To be entered, simply answer the question below using the comments form below:

Do you save your scraps, and if so, what’s the smallest size that you will keep?

    The smallest I keep are 2 1/2″ squares and 1 1/2″ strips (for log cabin blocks). I’m a nut about saving fabric – I have baskets of 2 1/2, 3, 3 1/2, 4, 4 1/2, 5, 6, 10 inch squares besides 2 1/2″ strips and 1 1/2″ strips. I make quilts for the teenagers in our church to take to give to people on their mission trips, so I use that fabric. I also have gone nuts for buying patterns and books that say “scrap quilt.”

    I save all my scraps, at least until I am through with a project. Learned that early on because I was working on something and needed just a little bit more to finish. Hadn’t saved my scraps so I had to substitute. From then on, I saved it all until I was finished. I put them in a bag or basket and eventually, I either give them away or use for something else. Thanks for letting me have a chance at this book. Looks wonderful!

    I used to save random scraps for “someday.” Now I organize them into strips, because strips can be cut into squares. The smallest strips I save are 1 1/2″ so I end up with a 1″ finished strip or square. This book could possibly become my “someday!” I can’t wait to peruse the pages.

Although I’m not sure what I will do with all of them, I have some that I inherited from my mother-in-law where she went through and cut strips and squares and put them all in boxes.

    Large leftovers, FQ size or bigger go into bins by color. Smaller scraps get cut into squares as big as possible, but as small as 2 1/2 inches. Some are cut into 3 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches. When all that is left is a strip, it gets saved for strip piecing. Each size goes into it’s separate plastic sack. When there is enough for a quilt, it gets sewed together and is a”give away” quilt. 21 quilts have gone to Africa, 15 to Mexico, 9 to a homeless shelter and 3 were used for fund raisers. People give me fabric and women from our church group help tie the ones I don’t quilt.

    I am the “collection point” for all size scraps. The snips/strings are given to an animal shelter to use as stuffing for beds. Next larger size for fellow quilters for applique. Next size are used for foundation pieced string squares for quilts. Strips at least 2.5″ are used for strip “drag its” (small quilts for little ones to drag around and olders to cuddle). A group I belong to makes quilts for HANK (Helping Abused and Neglected Kids infants to 18 year olds), these kids are in child protective custody situations. At the Christmas party the kids get to choose a quilt for their own. Many quilters would get to use this book for our projects!

    I save pieces as small as 1.5″ square. I use them as leader/enders and then make four patches with them. Using my scraps sparks my creativity.

    I have yet to organize my scraps but I think I’ve gotten rid of anything smaller than an inch square.

    As long as they are at least an inch, I keep them.

    Anything above 3/4″ is worth saving. I do a lot of hand applique, so you never know when you need a piece for a leaf or flower petal.

    New to making quilts, so don’t have many scraps yet, but have plenty of fat quarters, 2 1/2 rolls. So, this book would be great on starting saving my fabric bits.

    I save everything. I just started making crumb blocks and some pieces are smaller than a half inch, which makes some seams only slightly more than an eight inch. I am nuts, I know.

    I am new to quilting and am just now starting to save scraps. If it’s a reasonable size, 1-2 inches, I save it for a future project.

    I save strips that are at least 1 1/2″ wide. They usually are at least 6″ long. I’m saving them to make string blocks to make into a quilt someday. Anything smaller in size I pass onto a quilting friend for her applique projects. Waste not, want not!

    Well, if “tiny” counts as a size, that’s how small I save. I do a lot of paper piecing, so small bits get used. Plus I save tiny odd shaped pieces for my granddaughters to craft and play with. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    Does it count if you save your cutoff selvages? Would love to win the inspiring book. Thanks.

    I save down to 2×2 inches, and I save selvages. Thanks for the chance at a great give-away!

    I will keep anything that would still show up with a quarter inch seam allowance. I do a lot of applique, too, so tiny pieces come in handy for that.

    After I finish a project, I cut my scraps in different sizes, from 1 1/2″ to 5″ squares.
    Would love to win this book – always looking for great ideas for new projects.
    Thanks !!!

    I keep anything that I think I could use in a future project. Little pieces are useful in applique quilt blocks.

    I save everything that is at least an inch wide- the smallest scraps get used as starters and enders when I am sewing; the rest get cut to their closest equivalent and then get stored in labelled bins. When I retire in June, my first priority will be to start some projects to use them all up!

    I save all my scrapes from 1″ and up. Some odd pieces (I use the newspaper plastic bags to save the edges) I give to the local High school for art projects to weave and make pictures.

    I save them all, even trimmings. If they are too small to use, usually under 2″, they go in the basket to use for filling for dog beds for the Humane Society.

    If it will work for a tiny applique piece, I keep it. Those itty bittys go in quart canning jars by color 🙂

    I save pieces as small as 3/4″ square, especially if I have more. I like to piece the occasional patch as I have seen on old quilts.

    I usually try not to save anything smaller than 2 1/2 square, but some fabrics are hard to part with. What a wonderful looking book! Looks like endless opportunities to use up some of our stashes!

    I save the smallest of small scraps to use for embellishing or art quilts. The itty bitty bits are being saved to make floor cushions for the grandkids. Would love a new book.

    I keep squares and strips 2″ and wider. I keep thinner strips, 1 1/4″ to 1 7/8″ for string blocks which I attach to a foundation as I collect them. They never stay around much longer than a couple of days. It is surprising how quickly I have enough string blocks for a comfort quilt.

    Looks like a super fun book. I love scrap quilts, so I keep a variety of sizes, depending on the color. But basically, I try to not keep anything under 2.5″. I also set my larger scraps aside, in a box and when it gets full I cut them into various sizes and bag them. as I get enough scraps cut I make blocks, and as I get enough blocks I make quilt tops.

    The smallest size scraps I keep are 1/2 inch wide by 20 inches length of selvages. When I create quilts for clients I keep the selvages to use as a reference of the fabric manufacturer and the coordinating colors that go with that piece. If I need more of it in the future I have that small piece in a binder along with pattern info and notes from the project. Saves time and clients can see/feel the fabric used.

    I save my scraps, usually an inch, ninch and a half are my smallest, but strips I always save if there at least a 1/2 inch. You just never know, you might need need it for a project.

    I started saving all my scraps that I don’t donate to others. I didn’t think they would be good for stuffing until a project I worked on add batting scraps. How soft that bed will be! Otherwise. I keep and sort scraps 2 1/2 inches and larger for quilts/quilting projects. This book would come in handy for ideas. Thanks for the chance to win!
