I find it very difficult to part with any of my stash of quilting projects and/or fabrics. Even UFOs that have been stashed away in boxes or bins for many years can seem too precious to give up, even though it is unlikely I will ever go back and finish them.
Cynthia at Quilting is more fun than Housework just hosted the Fall 2015 Quilty Orphan Adoption Event. I believe she is planning to repeat this event again next March. Cynthia motivated me to pull out a couple of old projects to give away.
I offered up the following two projects for adoption, and it's time to announce the winners!
The first "orphan" is my Envelope mystery quilt blocks and pieces to make more. Winner #1 is Sherry who commented:
"WOW! Both projects are wonderful. It would be a pleasure to complete either one of them. My guild was just discussing upping our charity program to include more groups yesterday. . . either of these would be a great addition to our cause."
The second "orphan" is the Simple Symmetry partial blocks and extra fabric. The winner of this prize is Kat. Here is her comment:
"Hi, these are great projects! I'd love to have either one or both for my charity, Covered in Love. We provide quilts to the families of patients who pass away in the local hospital. Thanks for sharing!"
Congratulations to the winners! I have emailed both to send me their mailing addresses. Thanks to everyone for your interest in adopting my orphans. Keep watching for the next orphan adoption event in March at Quilting is more fun than Housework.
