Manic Monday Offerings!

I’ve got the bug…quilting season is about to hit full swing with fall only a few weeks away…so I’m going through my UFO’s and “fall cleaning”.

Following the lead of Kate and offering up my stuff πŸ˜€

I have lots to “give away”. UFO’s I’ve totally lost interest in or have had since last year’s “fall cleaning” and realize I just need to let them go.

Because I have so many, I’ll start this week offering two different projects.

The details:

1. This is free to any good home. I don’t want or need anything in return, but if you feel the need just read my interest post to get ideas.

2. All items are “used”, as in I have either started work on them or pre-washed. Some things might still be in original packaging, but most will not be.

3. All items are stored in a plastic bag in a non-smoker home. I do have cats, so if you are allergic, please be aware to wash items before handling.

4. All items are “as is”.

5. I must be able to “reply” to your comments. All you need to do is under your profile, edit, show email address. You can’t win if I can’t contact you.

6. I will place all commenters from this post in a bowl and have my youngest daughter pick out winners. All drawings will happen on Saturday, winner announced on Sunday.

7. If a week as 2 offerings, I will do two drawings. If you do not want to be in both, please state so in your comment.

8. If there are no takers, I will repost the previous week’s ufo until it has a home to go to. The purpose of this is to share and move this stuff out of my house πŸ˜€

9. You can comment twice, once for yourself and once for a friend (whom might not blog). So, even if you don’t like these offerings, you might know someone who will!

10. Please comment!! Needed a number 10 just to even the list out πŸ˜€

EDIT: PLEASE update your profile so I can email you. If I can not contact you, you will not win a ufo. . . see #5 above!

Here is this week’s items:

Item #1

3 yards of fabric from Quilting Treasure’s line Jacobean Rhapsody Fabric Collection. This fabric has not been washed.

Item #2

Holiday Churn Dash Blocks. These were acquired through verses online swaps–I think there is only 2 of my own blocks in this batch. There are 9 – 12″ blocks and 6 – 9″ blocks. I just haven’t been able to find a setting for them, they are a nice group and I hope someone would love to use them!



  1. Although I haven’t commented yet, you have enticed me with the purple fabric and the blocks. What a great idea.

  2. Hi – I would be interested in the churn dash blocks. That actually happens to be one of my favorites.

  3. Well I generally comment alot anyway because I’m such a blabber mouth, but the fabric is gorgeous and I would be very happy and grateful to give it a good home LOL.

  4. Can I also comment for my friend Vicky who is our local Linus co-ordinator who would be very grateful for any UFO or Orphan blocks? Thanks.

    BTW, I see you have been sewing up a storm – well done, it’s great stuff especially the ‘take 2 and add a few’ quilt top! That is such an effective pattern no wonder you are pleased.

  5. I’d like to be included in the drawing for the holiday churn dash blocks.
    Thanks! Jeanne

  6. Arms frantically waving in the air—I would love to have the fabric and the blocks! πŸ˜€

  7. I’d like to be in both drawings, please.

  8. Oh lovely fabric. Please put my name in the drawing. Thanks x

  9. I am resisting (so you don’t need to enter me in the draw) – but maybe next week will bring something I “need” πŸ™‚

  10. I will add my name to the list as well. That now brings you up to 10 (so you’re even ;)))


  11. What a great idea! Thanks for doing this. I love the Holiday Churn Dash blocks, but don’t enter my name as I have too many of my own UFO’s.

  12. I’d just love that fabric as well as the blocks. I know just what I’d want to do with both of them πŸ™‚

    So please put me in the drawing for both of your offerings πŸ™‚

    What a great idea! I may have to think about doing this myself with some of the things I am no longer *in love with*

  13. I love this idea…….you are so brave to have courage to part with your “quilty things.” Not sure I could do it just yet. Please put my name in the pot, I will provide a good home complete with kitty.


  14. Please don’t add my name because I don’t need any additional projects (I’m playing catch-up myself), but I wanted to say what a wonderful idea this is! Everything will have a good home and there will be lots of happy quilters!

  15. what a great way to downsize!!

    unfortunately, I cannot offer either of these a home ATM… floors require packng up the studio on the weekend

    good luck to everyone in the draw

  16. What a neat idea! I love it! Maybe this is what I should do with a few of my UFO’s! I will pass on the drawings this week – looks like you have a bunch of interest – I just wanted to say what a great idea I think this is!

  17. Hopefully I’m not to late. I just read your bog. I am interested.

  18. I am impressed. This is a good idea but I just am too stubborn to let these kinds of things go. I have been working to finish many of my UFOs etc. and I am actually making headway. I think I just would feel lost if I didn’t have so many projects hanging out there!!!!
