Please Adopt Me!

Jubilee

UPDATE:  Auction is closed. Winner has been notified.

Cynthia Brunz over at Quilting is More Fun than Housework is hosting an Orphan Adoption event this weekend. She does this twice a year. Go check it out and then find someone's UFO to adopt!

My first project up for adoption, begun in December 2013, is made from a Moda Layer Cake (Aspen Frost) and white BasicGrey Grunge by Moda.  I finished the blocks in March of this year.  All that is left for you to do is add sashing and borders of your choice! Finished size is 62" by 74".


If you adopt my UFO, you will receive 20 blocks that will finish at 10-1/2" -- 7 assorted red, 7 assorted aqua ...


and 6 assorted evergreen.


I will include two unused pieces ...


... along with the pattern ...

Jubilee by Margot Languedoc for The Pattern Basket
and the selvage from the Grunge I was using in case you want to follow the patterns and use it for sashing and borders.

There is no charge for you to adopt my orphan and I have no preference how you use what you receive. I will pay the shipping. I am located in Tennessee/USA and will only ship within the US.

This adoption is open until midnight CDT on Wednesday, September 21, 2016.

Leave a comment below and tell me what you have in mind. I'll put your name in the hat with the hoards of others who are looking for an easy finish. The winner will be selected totally at random. Just be sure that there is a way I can get in touch with you to get your snail mail address (in other words, if you're a "no reply" commenter, include a current email address).

And don't forget to check out the other orphans up for adoption.

I would love to see your finished project and it would be nice if you come back here from time to time to see what I'm up to.

  1. I would love to have those blocks, they would be sewn into a large top, longarm quilted with a pretty pantograph, and given to our local hospice that desperately need quilts to make the rooms more like home. Thank you for offering and the opportunity to put them to good use.

  5. Those blocks would be perfect for me to make into a quilt for my quilting group's fundraiser. We are raising money to purchase a new longarm quilting machine so that all the members can use it. A big project needing lots of time, money, and fabric! Thanks.

  7. Ohio Stars are my favorite quilt block, and this variation is lovely, Christmas is my favorite holiday, too. I would love to finish up this UFO for a gorgeous Christmas gift. I would want it to finish a little larger than that so I would add a border of six inch friendship stars I am in the middle of making with my quilting group this month.
    Thanks so much for the chance, they are beautiful!

  11. Oh, these blocks are lovely!! This would make a wonderful less traditional Christmas quilt with the lovely aqua. I've never worked with grunge fabric, but this adoption would be a great reason to start! 😊

  14. Blocks done and I just have to add sashing? Yes, please! We have a silent auction at our quilt guild show. The proceeds go toward our programs that supply materials for donation quilts. I would happily put this together into a finished quilt for the auction!

  19. This would be perfect for a charity quilt project that my girlfriend runs called Mito Quilts of Hope mitoquiltsofhope.org It is for giving quilts to children and adults affected by mitochondrial disease, which is a neurodegenerative disease that can be life threatening. Please FB message "Lisa Mito" if anyone would like to help out or donate a orphaned quilt or use the contact on mitoquiltsofhope.org.

  21. Yes I would love those, they are beautiful. I am thinking perhaps they could be made into 2 childrens donation quilts, maybe adding a bit from my stash to make it work. Quilty hugs to you!

  24. I would love,to adopt these blocks! I would like to use the red and aqua blocks to make a Wounded Warrior quilt - sometimes the quilts just aren't feminine enough for the female soldiers! The green blocks would be made into a baby quilt to donate to the Army hospital!! I am really inspired by these blocks!!! Thanks for the offer!!!

  30. The fabrich are wonderful and this would make an awesome quilt. I would have to play with the blocks to decide how I wanted to assemble the top. Thanks for the opportunity to enter the giveaway.

  31. 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 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.

  32. These beautiful blocks would be used for a comfort quilt made by our quilt ministry group for someone in need. They're beautiful and would certainly be a cheerful comfort to someone.

  33. Very pretty. I love the idea of adding a little sashing to separate the blocks. I am a big star fan and would love to give this one a good home.

  34. Your blocks would make a wonderful lap quilt for charity...They are beautiful!

  35. The red blocks are such a vibrant shade! I would like to have the adoption to make a quilt to donate to a local family. Each year the elementary school in my small rural town chooses a family to adopt for Christmas. I think this would make a wonderful addition to their gifts. Thank you for your generosity. momoftana at yahoo dot com
