Spring 2020 Quilty Orphan Adoption Event

Have you been spending your isolation time in your sewing room?  If you are like me, you have probably spent some time cleaning and digging out old UFOs.  If you have come across some old projects or orphan blocks that you no longer want, consider adopting them out!

Quilting is more fun than Housework

Does this sound like projects you might have?  Well my friends, it is time to get those projects out of our sewing rooms and into the hands of someone that will finish them!  Over the years, I have adopted out over a dozen projects and I have never given them a second thought. (And it felt so good to cross them off my UFO list!

This Quilty Orphan Adoption event helps in getting those projects to quilters that will finish them and give them some much deserved attention.  And I can say from experience, it feels great to release the burden and move onto something you really want to work on!

Now it is time for this Spring's Quilty Adoption Event!

Orphan Adoption Event
March 19th through March 21st 2019

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!

The ability to link up your blog, Instagram, Flickr, or Facebook post will be open through the end of the day Saturday March 21st.  You can award your adoption on any date you choose after Sunday the 22nd.  Feel free to offer as little or as much as you want.  It can be blocks, books/patterns, kits, printed panels, fabric, quilt tops...anything that you hope someone else will use and you wish to get rid of the burden.


And if you are looking to adopt a project, please read each blog post and be sure you only offer to adopt those orphans you know you can finishThe object of this event is to get these things finished, not just stored on another shelf.  Thanks!
