Free to a Good Home!

 I continue to try them out, but Mystery quilts are just not for me!

Late last year, I signed up for a mystery Stitch Along through Annie's.  I really enjoyed the first block.  It was a nice mix of piecing and applique.  But then February's block was released and it was a truck entirely appliqued.  I looked at it and thought I would redesign it so that it was a mix of both techniques.  Before I got around to redesigning it, the third block was released....and you guess it - entirely applique again.

So I will continue to read and enjoy the mystery novel that gets released each month but I am no longer going to make the blocks.  I am bummed the blocks were not what I thought they would be but I run into this issue every time I sign up for a mystery Quilt Along.  




The good news is that someone is going to get the giant lighthouse block I finished for the first month of the Stitch Along..  It measures about 25" square.



I also dug through my orphan blocks to see if there were some other items I could include in the package.  I found these blocks that could easily be added to make a larger quilt.  If you win and decide you want them too, they are yours!  The flags each measure 12" x 16".


If you would like to adopt the lighthouse block, please let me know in the comments that you are interested.  

(Note, your comment should be made directly on my blog and not through Bloglovin' - it does not allow me access to your contact information so I have no way of getting ahold of you if you win.)

I will ship anywhere in the US for free.

I will be selecting a winner from those that are interested sometime on Monday the 22nd so be sure to comment before then.  If there is more than one candidate, I will select a winner using a random number generator.  Please make sure I can get ahold of you!  If you are not positive if your email is available, please leave it in your comment.  Thanks!


This orphan has found a home!



Quilting is more fun than Housework










There are other items being adopted out by quilters so be sure and check them all out.  Also, if you have items you would like to put up for adoption, you have until the 20th to link up.  Time to clean out those UFOs!

  1. I'd be happy to adopt either one or both. Our quilt ministry group makes comfort quilts for nursing home patients among others and we're always happy to receive "seed" for new quilts.

  7. You know I love a good orphan block, and yours are among the best! But I see that you have plenty of other people interested, so I'll keep my hat out of the ring this time. Best of luck to everyone who is in the running :)

  8. I love the lighthouse block. In fact, I am slowly redecorating my small home in nautical decor. Since I live in NC, we are lucky to have several lighthouses to visit. My favorite is the Cape Hatteras light. I really like the flag blocks also. Thanks for the chance to win.

  9. What a great plan of adoption! That lighthouse block is a looker for sure. It is great to see so many people who would be delighted to adopt the blocks! I like those flag blocks too and I look forward to seeing who wins. I have way too many projects to be adopting any more for the time being! LOL!!!!
