Giveaway #4 and Welcome!
If you’re new to Stash Bandit, welcome! My Scrap Quilt Secrets sessions on Sundays have brought in new people and if that’s you, I’m happy to have you.
I’m doing a series of 10 giveaways to celebrate a milestone on Instagram. This is #4.
Today’s giveaway includes a great new book just out from Linda Hahn and Deborah Stanley called Rock that Quilt Block, published by Landauer. It features the Country Crown block and many ways to use it.
Krista Moser’s new booklet Know Your Battings is also part of today’s giveaway. This is a handy carry-along reference to all the pertinent info about the stuff we hide between the layers.
There is also an Eco-Pouch set: Bonnie Hunter’s Addicted to Scraps version. I love these for keeping machine accessories, an EPP take-along kit or cosmetics. Useful and happy scrappy!
In sorting through my quilting library, I decided it’s time to share some of my tried and true favorites, so I added three Kim Diehl titles to the giveaway: Simple Applique, Simple Blessings and Simple Appeal. If you love quilting tradition, these are for you.
The stack is topped off with cute Moda patches for your nametag, 50-wt cotton Konfetti thread from Wonderfil and a Stash Bandit button.
To enter the giveaway, leave a comment before midnight CDT on Tuesday, March 16. Tell me if you’ve heard one of my trunk shows and where, or tell me what you’re working on, all in the spirit of fun. The winner of this giveaway is Beverley Mark, who I have notified by email. Thank you all for playing along! I’ll pick a winner randomly and post it here. This giveaway is for US addresses.
Thanks for visiting Stash Bandit today! 😊

I haven’t had the opportunity to hear Diane in person, but I have certainly enjoyed the scrappy zoom meetings. It just occurred to me in looking at your logo— Before 2020, the mask was to go with the “bandit” part of your name, but now your bandit just blends in with everyone else wearing a mask! 😁
I am getting g ready to quilt a scrap quilt with 225 4-patch blocks!
I heard you at guild and you inspired me to do Dresden Plates!
Hello Diane. I live close to Memphis, and I am a member of Uncommon Threads Quilt Guild. You will be teaching a class for us next month. Attending your stash bandit classes has been so inspiring. I love creating my own designs, so your instructions using scraps have been so encouraging! I have not seen your trunk show, but I love what I have seen so far.
I am working on the My Kinda Town quilt pattern and having fun with it.
I’ve heard about your trunk shows but haven’t seen one. I don’t have a local guild but enjoy your tutorial videos.
I have heard about your give sways on social media. I am currently working on a whole cloth, whit on white quilt by hand quilting it. It will be my one and only hand quilted piece!
Joined recently through Instagram. I am enjoying your Sunday talks. I am working on some paper piecing and finishing Grassy creek.
I have not had the pleasure of seeing one of your trunk shows. Hopefully soon I will. I am currently working on denim hats, pillows, makeup bags and crocheted hats. I recently retired so I have lots of play time.
Our quilt guild had you for a virtual trunk show last September in Hesston, KS. I have also been watching your scrap secrets shows on Sunday. I have really enjoyed them and hope to see the last two.

I’m working on an appliqué quilt with penguins. Struggling that some of the pieces should have been drawn on the back of fabric not front, but no directions to state that. To me it makes it much easier when you draw on the front, then iron on the heat and bond to the back in one sheet.
I have seen at least 3 of your trunk shows, 2 in Grand Island and one in Hastings , Nebraska. They were all fun but the Jingle Bells show was my favorite!
I have never heard one of your trunk shows but would love to! I just finished a very large tshirt quilt for a young lady and mailing it tomorrow. Getting ready to longarm a very scrappy quilt
I’m working on a bullseye quilt using a gorgeous set of homespuns in greens, oranges, blues and reds, and getting binding ready for a scrappy medallion quilt.
You came to our quilt guild in Fairbury Ne. I’m working on a block of the month quilt using the accuquilt cube and companion set.
Watching tv and hand sewing a binding…
I love your ideas to use up scraps and color selection
Loved your articles and patterns when I subscribed to Quiltmaker magazine. Glad to hear from you on a more regular basis via your blog. Would love to win this book collection.
Hi, Diane. i think I’ve attended 3 of your trunk shows. The first was at Quilt Nebraska – 100 Quilts, way back in 2013 or so when I was one of your scrap Squad members. Before Covid I saw you at Lee’s Summit Quilt Guild where it snowed during your presentation. I’ve made a small baby Windmills from that one. The last was the Zoom meeting in Nov 2020 for the Kansas City guild. I loved them all, and wished the last one could have been in person.
I am currently working up the courage to do some machine quilting on a baby quilt for our new grandson–I have a small practice quilt to experiment on and then I hope to feel more confidant to try some free motion on my home machine. So far, I have quilted straight lines with a walking foot on my domestic Bernina and done a little free motion with a rental Long Arm. (But free motion on a domestic is way different than a Long Arm.
I’m working on a quilt along by Yvonne Fuchs as a wedding quilt for my son and future daughter in law, and cutting fabric for another wedding quilt gift!
Thanks for the fun give aways!
Diane B Paul
I been a Diane Harris fan since she was editor of Quiltmaker. The scrappy zoom calls have been a lot of fun. Thanks, Diane
I’ve been following you since I did sample squares for Quiltmaker’s 100 blocks issues. So I usually hear about your trunk shows on your blog or on your facebook posts. I did see one of your trunk shows at the quilt guild in Elkhorn, Nebraska. Loved it! I’m working on several things………mostly Bonnie Hunter quilts. Trying to sew down the stash, but never seem to make much of a dent in it!
I am working on a string quilt which is the last of three quilts made from a grandfather’s shirts. Follow your blog and Instagram but have not been able to view your stash sessions.
Diane you gave a wonderful trunk show by zoom to our Hesston Guild last fall. I also saw one of you free Sunday afternoon scrapbuster shows. You are full of creative ideas.
I have only heard of your trunk shows on your web site. They look so fun! Would love to have my Guild participate in a Zoom version of a show. Thanks for offering your Scrap Quilt Secrets sessions. They have been very informative and inspirational.
I am working on binding. I had 3 items that I quilted as part of my learning experience for my longarm. They have needed binding for years. I have one completely done, one almost done and one in the wings that I hope to have done by Friday. That’s my goal. After that, I am working on a UFO that is at least 22 years old. No rest for the procrastinators!
Hello Diane – YES I’ve seen you in person in Wichita, KS for the Long Arm Quilters in that area. And last Fall for Emma Creek Quilt Guild from Hesston, KS on ZOOM. You always astound me in your creative use of fabrics…no fabric scrap goes to waste from “color abandonment” – all scraps play well together with your eye and guidance! You are in a league all your own!
That is so kind of you to say. Thank you!
I have seen two of your trunk shows. One was scrappy quilts (Braided River Quilt Guild in Papillion. NE and Baby Windmills at the Omaha Quilt Guild. Plus I took your Hanky Panky class. I also took your mock hand binding class. Love your way your quilts look
Hello! I’m fairly new to Stash Bandit, but I can’t wait to explore your site more and be inspired! I love using fabric from my stash for projects and definitely have a “problem” hoarding remnant cuts!
Can’t wait to hopefully see your trunk shows one day!
Just found your blog and love it!
Bookmarked for the future. ❤️
May the luck o’ the Irish be with you, and with ME to win this giveaway! Thank you!
