Quilty Orphan Adoption Event -- part 2!

Cynthia from Quilting is More Fun Than Housework hosts a brilliant event twice each year: a quilty adoption event.  The idea is to pass on projects that you haven't finished, and that no longer excite you, to someone else. 

My previous post offers up a bunch of fabric squares; this one has blocks.

**If you want any chance of receiving these blocks, please make sure that I have your email address. Many of you are "no-reply" bloggers, which means that your email address is not included in your profile and no one can respond to you!**

Set #1 is 3 purple skull blocks that measure about 15" x 17" finished. The pattern was a free one several years ago but now it's in the book "Quilt With Tula and Angela"

Set #2 is a bunch of red/heart-related blocks. The largest ones are about 16" finished.

Let me know which set you're interested in. I'll pick names on Sunday the 22nd. Happy to ship anywhere in the US, and make sure your email address is included somewhere in your comment.

Quilty Orphan Adoption Event -- Fall 2020

Cynthia from Quilting is More Fun Than Housework hosts a brilliant event twice each year: a quilty adoption event.  The idea is to pass on projects that you haven't finished, and that no longer excite you, to someone else. 

**If you want any chance of receiving these scraps, please make sure that I have your email address. So far I have 6 requests but 5 a "no-reply" bloggers, which means that your email address is not included in your profile and no one can respond to you!**

So -- here's what's on offer -- a shoe-box stuffed with 3 1/2" squares and some 3 1/2" strips of various lengths.  It's a big mishmash of colors and styles (all quilting cottons)





I'll ship anywhere in the U.S. -- sorry but overseas postage is too crazy!  Let me know what you would do with this bounty of squares.  Make sure your email address is included in your comment.

I will choose a recipient on Sunday the 20th.

Spring Quilty Orphan Adoption Event - #2

I have a couple of items to throw into the mix for this spring's event. My second giveaway is for a pile of purple batik blocks.  I started making these from Elizabeth Hartman"s "Patchwork City" book but sort of lost interest. The blocks measure 5" x 14". there are 8 complete and 2 incomplete blocks, made of a wide spectrum of purple.



I will choose someone to receive these on Sunday evening, March 22. I will only mail to addresses in the U.S. and please note that since I am "sheltering in place" they may not get mailed immediately. 

See my other post for the second giveaway.  Visit QuiltingisMoreFunThanHousework for more about the event and other giveaways.
Thanks!
