The Joyful {Quilty} Orphan Adoption

Updated 2/21/16 - The Joyful {Quilty} Orphan Adoption is now CLOSED!!!

I've tried to link-up with the Oh Scrap! Link Party over at Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework, but never had any luck.  I'm not quite sure what I was doing wrong, but when I saw that Cynthia was hosting the Spring 2016 Quilty Orphan Adoption Event, I thought that I should try again.  Hopefully, if you click on the icon below, it will take you directly to the auction offerings page:

Here's a close-up for a better idea of what the yardage looks like:

(Please note that the colors in this print are springier than they appear in the photo above.)

  1. I would be interested in the Thimbleberries fabrics. I would like to use it for a spools quilt I am making out of Thimbleberries fabric. I also make Heartstrings blocks for donation, so I could use the leftovers in blocks for that. Thank you for the chance to use theses fabrics!

  2. So generous! Green Pink and Animal talk would be a wonderful addition to my stash of fabric for donation quilts! I make quilts for the DC General Homeless Shelter ( I donated 3 quilt last December, and now I have 4 tops ready to be quilted! New fabric and blocks are always appreciated!

  3. Thanks for participating. It looks like some of those items are already finding possible homes!

  4. I would love to have the #5, Bird in Hand fabric. I can easily use that in one of the donation quilts I'm planning, though I understand that's not required. I also understand I will be responsible for reimbursing you for shipping, presumably through paypal? dezertsuz at gmail,

  5. I would love the green and pink blocks and fabric to be made into a quilt for a family staying in our local mission home. I made two for them last year. I will gladly reimburse you for the postage. I can be emailed at Thanks for the donations.

  6. The green and pink 9 patches, to make kennel quilts, and I'll donate to a local pet sanctuary or animal rescue group. I'm a neighbor in VA, will reimburse for postage of course:)


  7. would use the thimbleberries fabric to finish one one to make bigger. Thank you
