Free to a good home


Yep, some more clearing out. First up, a number (somewhere around 50, I think - I couldn't bother to count them all) batik arcs, handsewn onto calico, which would make a double wedding ring, given the right background. There might not be enough to do much with, mind you, but it's something.



And then, a very miscellaneous selection of orphan blocks, which might be good to someone for something. The purple and green Buckeye Beauties are actually a whole row I took off a recent baby quilt top because I thought it was too big, so there are 12 blocks in total (sewn together in an unhelpful configuration). The rest is just miscellany.

Let me know if either would be good for charity work or as stash enchancers, and I'll draw some names in a week or so.

Kate, please put my name in the hat for those. They will be a good stash enhancer, i will add them to mine. I would love to work with the arcs. Thank you

Maybe I could incorporate those batik arcs into my crumb quilt...it would make a very pretty border!

Orphans blocks pretty please??? I can offer a good home to anything ;o)

ps I am loving using your C & B blocks. Such great colours. Next I want to make some more of those brown pineapple blocks I begged off you. (are you sensing a theme here? I like your blocks!)

I'd love for you to throw my name in the hat. I'm working on a scrappy quilt that needs tiny pieces. This would be perfect! THANKS so much for thinking of us!

Hi
I'm interested in the blocks. Our quilt guild makes baby blankets for stillborns at the hospital. The web is baby bear blankets.
Enjoy your work and inspiration.

I'm always interested in orphan blocks - I'm collecting to make a mix-up quilt for our quilt ministry!

Oh! Pick me... Those would be great for Bumble Beans Inc goal of 700 quilts! I could use them to make one!

So, please throw my name in the hat :D

Not really a quilt maker but I think I could use the arcs for another project so please enter me in the draw.

Kate - would love a chance at the orphan blocks. Some day I hope to make an orphan quilt but I have no orphans ;)

They would be great stash enhancers.

I'd love to have my name thrown in as well.

I wouldn't mind incorporating your blocks into a quilt top!
