Orphan Adoption

Update:  I closed the comments and notified the winners.  Thanks to all who visited my blog.

Hello!  It's been a while!  I thought I'd just back jump into things by participating in Cynthia's Orphan Adoption Event.   The premise is to get unloved projects, patterns, fabric, quilt tops, into the hands of someone who wants them and hopefully will put them to good use.

All of my items are free, no strings attached, you may finish and donate to charity or keep for yourself.  I am willing to ship only to U.S. addresses.  If more than one person wants an item, I will choose the winner by Random Number Generator.  I'll pick names on Friday, March 24.  Please, make sure I can contact you.  Leave your email in your comment if need be, and the number of the item you are interested in!

Number 1.
Left over blocks from a kit I made.  I believe the line was called Animal Crackers by Free Spirit.  I've got some pinwheel blocks and about 1-1/2 yards of pink fabric.  The quality of the fabric is super nice.  I might be able to locate the pattern that was included.  If so, I'll include that also.

Number 2.
Random orphan blocks not necessarily for the same project.  A creative project for sure.  I might be able to dig up a few more mismatched blocks to add to the mix.



Number 3.
This is a sick of 5-inch fabrics, a random mix of fabrics left over from projects I've worked on.  I haven't counted but there's a lot!  And they are an accurate 5 inches square.

Number 4.
This is a finished quilt top.  I started with a panel with the cats, cut them apart and added flying geese, square in a square, but about halfway through I just wasn't feeling it anymore.  I have the backing and binding I'll send along with it.  I had originally intended it as a charity quilt.  It's lap size or a large wall hanging.


Be sure to check out Cynthia's blog for the rest of the Orphan Adoption participants.

Hi Marianne. I am very interested in item #3 and item #1.Either one of these would be wonderful to have and would be put to good use. Thank you so much for your giveaways and for the chance to win them.

I have no doubt all of these will get adopted. There are some great potential quilts here. Thanks for participating in the event!

Hi, thank you for offering this. I would be interested in number 3 and would certainly use these to make children's quilts for charity. All of my quilts are donated through HeartStrings Quilt Project.

Generous of you to share your whip since the quilt mojo for these ran out. Items 3 and 4 would be welcome here. Thanks and Happy St Patrick's Day to you!

I would love to be picked to adopt #1 or 3. I make child size quilts for local law enforcement who keep them in their car truck to help a child who has been tramatized through some unfortunate circumstance.

I am interested in number 3. I would love to use them to make baby quilts for a few coworkers!

These are wonderful items. I am sure they will be snatched up in no time =)

How lovely for you to offer these treasures! I am most interested in #3 because I love scrappy quilts. But #4 would also be an option as I have agreed to make a charity quilt or two appropriate for a child age 6 or older and think the cats would fit the bill.

I would love to have #4. I am currently working on quilts for a new facility for a local charity providing safe harbor for abuse victims. The beds all need quilts, and they want extras to give to the women and children as they get on their feet and leave the facility. I'll quilt it on my longarm, bind and deliver it. Thank you for the offer, and for considering my request.

I would love to be counted in for item #4. I have been very sick for the last two years and am finally getting better. During this time my sister has been stepping in and taking care of all the things I needed help with. She is a cat person and I would love to finish this and give it to her as a thank you. I'm sure the funky cats would put a smile on her face. Thanks for the chance.

How generous and organized you are! I'd love to have any or all these projects. My church quilting group makes quilts for a homeless shelter for families in Iowa and we are in constant need of supplies. Thanks again. sjvonfumetti at yahoo dot com

Thanks for your offers! I'm interested in #3 (the charm squares) and in #2 (the block assortment). Both would be put to good use in projects that include quilts donated to community agencies and fundraisers and to the Care Bags Foundation.

Joyce said...

I am immersed in making quilts for Hospice (goal - 12 this year) and would be happy to receive any of the four. If you do need preferences, I would order as follows: #, 1, 4, 2. Thank you for this generous opportunity. heartscreations@outlook.com

I'd love to have my name thrown into the hat for #4 and #1. I make several charity quilt and donate them through my local quilt guild each year. Many of our quilts goes to Hannah's House 119 -- a charity for young women who have outgrown the foster system. Shahann@yahoo.com

I would like either 2 or 3. I have several orphan blocks of various sizes and colors and these would be great additions. Number 3 would be great to use with my 5 yr old granddaughter that is just starting to sew. Thanks for the chance to win. Momoftana at yahoo dot com
