Quilty Orphan Adoption

Quilting is more fun than Housework
The 2019 Quilty Orphan Adoption event is in full swing over at quiltingismorefunthanhousework. I think this might be my third year participating. Since I am routinely gifted by the thrift gods of wonderful fabric remnants and partially completed quilt blocks, I want to share the love. 

Here are some more details:
1.  I am going to ask that any "orphan" linked up must be given away for free.  (If you are wanting to destash for money, there are other venues to do that on.)  I think it is fair that if you need to, you can ask that shipping costs be paid.  Just be sure and put that information clearly in your post.  And know that both parties enter into the deal at their own risk.  I hold no responsibility.
2. Have clear pictures and descriptions on what you are putting up for adoption.
3. Define the criteria for how you will decide who will adopt the item.  Is it a random number giveaway, do you only want it to go to charity, or is there some other criteria that needs to be met?
4.  Be sure and identify where you are located and where you are willing to ship to.
5. Define how long you are keeping the adoption open and when you expect to award the adoption.
6. Remember to link back to my blog so your readers can see what else is being offered.  And feel free to grab a button!

I have two orphan sets to put up for adoption, free to U.S. residents only.  First to comment with their choice of orphan set AND one fact (About Me), wins. You MUST leave your email address in the comment, as I cannot reply to comments on my blog.  Adoption closes on Sunday, March 24th. (Sorry for the short notice). I will email adopters for mailing information. 

Orphan Set #1 - Giveaway closed, awarded to Sharon Sauser. 
This is a pretty set of fat quarters, 10 prints in all, I believe is Art Gallery fabric collection. 

Orphan Set #2 - giveaway closed, awarded to Joyce Carter. 
This is a cute colorway that could make a mini or supplement a larger quilt. Different sized precuts. (Gray quilt in image not included).

The funny thing about giving is that you receive back in abundance. Funny how that works - and away we go!

I would LOVE the Art Gallery collection. Almost all the quilts I make are for donation - mostly for the women and teens at the rescue mission and for veterans. A fact about you is that you are very creative, and have many skills and talents according to your bio. I think it's great that you are so good at thrift shop shopping. I never seem to be at the right place at the right time, or I'm doing something else wrong. It sounds like you never have a boring moment in your life.

I forgot to leave my email address in my comment - sjsauser@gmail.com. Maybe what you meant about leaving a fact about you is more like - you are a legal analyst for the California Department of Health Care Services.

I am very interested in set #2. Thank you so much for the giveaway.
Something about you--I know you participated in Quilt Qwazy Queens which Marion hosted and you shared a beautiful quilt that you found at your mother's house. You love traditional quilts and so do I. That quilt is such a treasure. Enjoy it and treasure it always.

Great fabric stacks. Looks like they will find a great home!

Thanks for participating again in the event! I love reading how all these orphans are finding their way to so many wonderful organizations!

I'd like to win set #1. I love Art Gallery Fabrics. As for a fact about you---using upholstery fabric is a great idea. I have used home dec weight for tote bags and placemats. Back when I made needlepoint pillows I discovered the Calico Corners chain for upholstery velvet. I will explore your posts to see how else you've used thrifted fabric. Thanks for the opportunity.

I learned that you are a rose gardener and a thrifter, both of which I love as well :)
I would be delighted to be the recipient of either of the fabric bundles you are sharing!
