Orphan Adoption ~ Quilt Blocks Looking For A Home

We all have a stack or two (or 4 or 5) of blocks we made that never see the light of day. They hover in limbo, get shoved to the back...neglected and forgotten.  It sounds so sad!  

There is a solution, actually a couple.  One is to make a quilt.  Seems logical, but we sometimes lose interest and can't seem to take that step.  The other solution and a very good solution at that, let some one adopt them!

Cynthia @Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework has her Fall 2016 Fall Quilty Orphan Adoption Event happening right now!!  It seems like the perfect time to offer up a couple stacks, don't you think?!  

Quilting is more fun than Housework


You can check out what others are putting up for adoption by clicking here:  Quilty Orphan Adoption.  The rules are simple:


The blocks must be free.  Define the criteria.  Shipping, blocks used in a charity quilt, how you will selected the winner and how long the adoption will last.

I'll show you what I have first and at the end I'll give the details for adopting the blocks!

First up is a stack of 22 ~ 12" Plus Blocks.  I've had them far to long and it's time they get the love they deserve!  They are a rainbow delight that would make a gorgeous quilt!





Polaroid Blocks!  Cute as can be...look at that Ninja!  The blocks are 3 1/2" x 4" and there are a total of 23.  


If anyone is interested in either batch of blocks, my criteria is very simple:
  • The blocks are free.
  • I'll pay shipping anywhere in the US.
  • You can use the blocks anyway you want.
  • Leave a comment telling me if you would like the Plus or Polaroid (or both).
  • I'll use the Random Number Generator to pick a winner on Monday (Sept. 19th)

Make me happy...ask for these blocks...make them happy...make a quilt!

Don't forget to check out other adoptions happening now!

  9. My heart skipped a beat with the Polaroid blocks! I've been keeping/stashing fabrics to make a baby quilt using blocks like these, so I'd use yours as am example to make more with my fabrics! I'd then have enough for that baby quilt I've been dreaming of. Now if I could just get that grandbaby I've been dreaming of too!

  33. This would be perfect for a charity quilt project that my girlfriend runs called Mito Quilts of Hope mitoquiltsofhope.org It is for giving quilts to children and adults affected by mitochondrial disease, which is a neurodegenerative disease that can be life threatening. Please FB message Lisa Mito if anyone would like to help out or donate a orphaned quilt or use the contact on mitoquiltsofhope.org.

  56. fabric choices are the hardest thing for me. It is the hurdle in the race that I can't get over easily. I love to get blocks from others where their creativity has already made the hard choices. I make quilts to raise money for our school and the community with blocks given to me. I love working with other's works-- it takes the pressure off :) I would happily take your blocks (all or either set) and create something fabulous with them that would support other's fundraising goals. Pick me! :) p.s. thank you for offering them up in the first place.
