In Defense Of Adopting Strays

There’s been a lot of talk of orphan projects here over the past few month. It got me thinking about all the ones I’ve finished over the years, and there have been many.
I don’t have pictures of all of them on this computer, but I have quite a few.
These blocks came from a block lottery.

As did this one.

And this one.

I bought this unfinished project at an estate sale.

This one came off the charity table at guild.

This one I bought at a quilt shop clearance sale.

This one was also from the block lottery.

And this one also came from the block lottery.

Most of these quilts were donated to various charities. I think it’s fitting that abandoned projects find a forever home with someone that needs comfort or is celebrating a new life.

    I love the idea of orphan blocks finding a new home! Donations of any kind are always greatly appreciated. Sharing the art we love with someone is an awesome reward 🙂

    Yes! I agree! How neat that you found homes for all your beautiful finished projects……

    I totally agree too. I “inherit” a lot of my friends UFOs and finish them before doing my own LONG list of UFOs. Why is it always easier to get someone else’s stuff finished than our own. Many years of that can get you into big trouble — ask me how I know. I’m slowing working my way down my list, but someone will probably end up with 50 or more if I don’t get busy.:) Those are some cute orphans and glad they found a good home.
