no 1: Green and Purple Log Cabin, approx 45" square
As anyone who reads here regularly knows, I make a lot of quilt tops, which I give away to charity, mostly Project Linus. But I don't really want to quilt them first because I'm
lazy busy and what really relaxes me is piecing, not quilting so much. The quilting I save for gifts for friends, etc.
Anyway, the main person I regularly send tops to has a bit of a backlog at the moment (not even counting the 7 or 8 tops I have waiting at home for her - not these pictured here!), so I decided it was time to give some of the other tops away elsewhere. And that's here.
Here are the "rules" of this giveaway. Anyone, anywhere in the world, may leave a comment asking for one of the tops as long as you intend to use it for charitable purposes. I don't really mind what charity or how you intend to use it (i.e. quilt it up and give it to a hospital, hospice, nursing home, disaster recovery centre, shelter, whatever; quilt it up and raffle it off for a school, scouts, organisation; sell or raffle the top itself; and so on) - as long as the top is being used for a good cause of some sort - any sort - I don't mind.
I will post the tops out anywhere in the world; you do not need to reimburse me for postage (though if you want to, that's ok, too). However, it's possible that if more than one person wants a certain top, I may favour UK residents or those who want to make a postage contribution (just depends on who wants these, and where they are).
So, if you are interested in one (or more) of the tops for your cause, leave a comment, and in a few weeks' time, I'll sort out some recipients, as fairly as I can. Please feel free to let anyone who you think might be interested, know about this giveaway (and I'll certainly do more of them through the year - though probably only one or two a month, not 8 - I've been accumulating for a while!)
I've numbered the quilts and put a size (all sizes in inches and approx - I was measuring quickly on the floor and didn't feel like crawling around all afternoon) and description, for convenience... Oh, and if you do get a top and finish it off, I'd love to see a photo (though it's not a requirement!)
