Hawthorne Threads Scrap Pack Giveaway!

*the giveaway is now closed*

Hello All! It's that time again. We haven't had a giveaway in a little while so I felt that we really should do something about that. So hopefully you've been following along and know why I'm doing a giveaway of scraps (from Hawthorne Threads!). What? You don't? Well then go check out the previous post on my Bottled Rainbow Quilt that I'm making as part of Rachel's/Stitched in Color's quilt along!


I know that a lot of people want to make this quilt but some people have had concerns about having enough scraps. I wish you all lived nearby because I would just invite you to come over and take some of mine! But since that is not the case, I'm doing what I can. Having a scrap giveaway.







Now the reality of "scraps" from Hawthorne Threads...first of all, they are all yummy because every fabric they have is yummy. And secondly, they are much more than small square pieces of fabric. These scraps easily can reach an 1/8th of a yard. So you will have some for another project as well. If you have not heard of Hawthorne Threads (shame on you! lol) then you should definitely check out their store to see all the luscious fabrics they have. You will also be interested to know that they have scrap packs in "cool", "warm", and "fresh" colorways. So you can try to figure out what colors you are missing and pick up one of those!



So, what do you need to do in order to get these yummy scraps?

1. Leave a comment about rainbows...anything about them. I just love rainbows. ;) (hey! that could be YOUR comment. lol)


2. Add my blog to your side bar on your blog (I am always forgetting to update this and I like it when giveaways do this because I can decide whether or not I like them enough to add to my sidebar. lol. Hopefully you all like me.)


3. Blog about Rachel's Quilt along and link to HER site in your post. (she doesn't know that I'm doing this!)


Good luck to everyone!

  1. My six year old daughter is totally into rainbows right now. It has been raining a lot lately in northern California so she is having lots of chances to look for real rainbows.

  4. For years, my aunt through that rainbows were like unicorns, just a made up thing. It wasn't until she was in her 40s that she was with my mom and she finally saw her first rainbow. All this time she would gently tease my mom for "believing in" rainbows.

  21. When my middle son was about three we had a brilliant rainbow outside after a storm and we all went out to look. Jason was terrified and ran back into the house crying, "no rainbow, no rainbow." We tease him about this everytime there is a rainbow ... and therefore he HATES rainbows. They always make me smile though :)

  27. I'm also working on the bottled rainbows, and have always loved rainbows, let's hope my husband likes them as much as I do, because this quilt is going on a bed!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Don't have a blog up and running, but double rainbows are one of the coolest things nature has to show us. The quilted rainbow is incredibly cool, but I have no where near enough scraps as a new quilted to start one yet, it's bookmarked for the future though.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Rainbows - they are great. Know what's better - watching your little girl (or boy) discover how wonderful they are. It'll make them wonderful all over again.

    thanks for the give away

Your blog is now on my blog list and I already have blogged many times about the quilt along and have a button to it in my sidebar :)

One of my favorite memories is of sitting on the side of the most lusciously green hill, with a view of mustard fields in full bloom intermixed with more fields of green and patches of woods, thinking that it couldn't be more beautiful, when I looked up and saw a double rainbow.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I am behind. First off, your haircut is so cute! You look great. Secondly, love those blocks. I enjoyed studying each and every scrap of fabric you arranged in the just the right spot.

    Regarding rainbows, a friend, who lives near San Francisco just moments ago posted on Facebook a photo of a double rainbow. She happened to see the rainbows outside her window and snapped a picture. The ethereal nature of rainbows makes them enchanting, I think.

  136. We keep my grandniece after kindergarten. I was stitching the LMS Birdie Stitches block 3 -- a rainbow AND it was St. Patrick's week in her class AND she was wearing a t-shirt with a rainbow on it. So, she was full of "why" questions about rainbows- why couldn't she reach the end, did the leprchauns have a pot of gold, on and on. It was fun to whisper back and forth about rainbows and be a little kid too. Thanks for the opportunity to win a bottled rainbow of colors. alternate email mlwright29 (at) hotmail (dot) com

  138. I love rainbows. Double rainbows too! and on one of the pictures I posted on my blog today, I have a bit of a rainbow. Not because of rain but I think I had some sort of bounce from the beautiful sunshines on the camera lense. Whatever... it is a sort of rainbow!

  145. Well, obviously I love rainbows...who doesn't?! I can also be a bit obsessive about organization, and ROYGBV is a common choice for me. I can't eat candy like Skittles or Smarties without sorting them first!

  146. Last week (St Patrick's Day) we ran home from school in the sun and rain, hunting for rainbows... too bad we didn't find one. My 5yo was quite sad we didn't see one.

  150. OOOH I keep meaning to buy one of those scrap packs -- since the only RAINBOWS in my stash are my coveted AMH fabrics. I think I'd have to supplement my stash a bit if I were to take on the bottled rainbow project (but that hasn't stopped me from thinking about it!!)

  158. I love rainbows! I can never pick just one... or two... or three colors! I teach Kindergarten, so rainbows are a big part of life. The kids this year even eschewed my "lunch song" and now sing "the rainbow song" to kick off lunch every day!

  164. In the old Nordic (Norse) mythology, the rainbow is called Bifrost and is the physical bridge between Midgaard (Middle earth) and Asgaard (Land of the Gods). It is guarded by the God Heimdal, who can see hundreds of miles and hear the grass grow and sleeps as light as a bird.

  167. I remember helping my children do a book report on rainbows. Did you know the colors always remain the same? And they have an acronym for the way the colors are portrayed. ROY G. BIV stands for the colors of the rainbow: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet.

  168. I love rainbows too. We've lived here 23 years & during that time I've seen 4 DOUBLE rainbows over our treeline - those are really special!

  169. I love rainbows especially double rainbows! The first double rainbow I saw was with my Grammy years ago. The second & third double rainbows I saw were after she passed and one was while I was visiting my Gramps cross-country and on our family land. The other one was one day when I was trying to make a really hard decision...the scientific part of me says they are all coincidences but the rest of me thinks they were sent from her!

  170. I blogged about Rachel's quilt-a-long in Feb and added her button to my blog. I haven't blogged about it recently because I've not gotten started yet (I know, shameful!). I would love to win scraps! I didn't know Hawthorne Threads sells scraps...I will definitely be checking that out!

  175. I'm motivating to do my 2nd quilt ever - it MUST be a rainbow! Love me some Hawthorne Threads too!

  176. Oh to see a rainbow right now - in my world we still have mounds of snow on the ground - a rainbow means rain showers, spring, green grass, sunshine and flowers, oh to dream ... I have been following Rachel's posts and wishing I had the scraps to participate as I love all the finished blocks I've seen. I just found your blog and look forward to checking it out.

  177. I was absolutely obsessed with using rainbow color order on everything from age 7 - 18. But, because I simply am incapable of doing anything in a regular way, I always insisted on starting with yellow and ending with green. Why? Because I like yellow.

    Oh, and when I get around to making my Bottled Rainbows quilt, I won't iron.

    And I'm commenting a new way so I won't be No-reply. Hope it works!

  178. Don't tell anyone, but took me awhile to figure out ROYGBV meant when I was in grade 9 science;)

    Thanks a lot for this giveaway!

  179. When I was little we lived in Hawaii and I remember seeing double rainbows quite a lot. It just made that place seem all the more magical!

  180. Rainbows are purdy! I wish I had the solids & scraps to do the quiltalong...I will do it eventually. Rainbows will always be purdy so there's no time limit for me!
    Love Hawthorne Threads too!

  181. Our family use rainbows to send each other love. We got the idea from a book called rainbow kids. If we are separated for any reason, we think of the other person and send a rainbow of love from our heart to theirs. Makes us feel better when missing the ones we love.

  182. I am a teacher and I love teaching about Rainbows to K and 1st graders especially when their rainbow isn't in the right order, but they still love it!

  183. Rainbows make me smile! If fact not to long ago on the NJ coast I saw a double rainbow. It was a happy day!!!
    Have a Rainbow kind of day!!!

  184. Oh, I've been thinking about making a rainbow quilt of some kind. It would be a good way to learn more about color.
    I love scraps, and Hawthorne fabrics are all pretty. I use even the tiniest scraps; I don't buy much fabric so a new infusion of your scraps would be such fun. Thanks.
