Adopt These Blocks!

The Quilty Orphan Adoption is over. Libby in TN (#2) won the hexagons, and Chris Sullivan (#19) won the plus signs. Congratulations, I hope these blocks help you create something beautiful!

Dear readers, I’m posting today as part of the Fall 2016 Quilty Orphan Adoption. This event, happening over at Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework, connects unwanted quilt blocks with adoptive homes. Will you open your heart and sewing schedule to some of my orphans?

First, I have three huge hexagons (16” flat side to flat side, 19” corner to corner) from Jaybird Quilts’ Park Bench pattern, featuring Carolyn Friedlander’s Botanics collection. There is a tiny cut in one of the exterior triangles of the mustardy hexagon; I’ll send along an extra snippet of that fabric in case you want to mend it.


I also have two 12½” squares available. These are from Meadow Mist Designs’ Outlined Plus pattern, and they feature fabric from Basic Grey’s Mon Ami line.


I’ll happily ship these lots to anyone in the United States free of charge. (If you’re outside the U.S. and want them, you’ll need to pay shipping.) You’re welcome to do whatever you wish with these blocks.

If you’re interested, leave a comment, citing whether you want the hexagons, pluses, or both. You have until 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 20, to comment (I’m on the East Coast of the U.S.). I’ll let the random number generator pick the lucky recipient(s).

I look forward to passing these blocks on to a quilter or two who can give them a good home!

  2. Geesh, the last thing I need is more orphans, but I've wanted to do Park Bench since the first time I saw it. If nothing more, I'd do a table runner with those luscious fabrics. Please put my hat in the ring!

  3. Lately I've been using orphan blocks to make tote bags. Those park bench blocks would make some really cool bags!

  11. Those hexies are so tempting! However...I've got some blocks up for adoption and I'm trying to clean up my space! Yay to orphan blocks getting a new home!

  12. 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.

  15. I'd love to use the hexagon on the back of a quilt I'm making for my son using Doe fabrics. He usually likes the backs of my quilts better then the front, so I've been trying to come up with something fun for his trek quilt. Thanks!!

  16. Love the hexagons, think I could try a pillow!

  17. Such a wonderful idea! I may need to find some new homes for my orphan blocks, or neglected quilts tops too!

  18. I would be happy with either or both. I try to incorporate orphan blocks into the backs of my quilts. Sometimes it is paper pieced blocks that I know I don't want to make a whole quilt, but just have to see if I can accomplish a single block. Thank you for the chance to win. momoftana at yahoo dot com

  21. Though I would love to have the blocks to turn into a Project Linus quilt, I'm not entering the giveaway--there are plenty of deserving commenters already. I just wanted to thank you for offering them to new homes.

  23. I'd love to play with Park Bench. I've been eyeing the pattern for some time, but haven't cave to buy the pattern yet as I have far too many projects on the go.
