Tidy Up Tuesday - {Quilty} Orphans Find a New Home

Welcome to the latest edition of Tidy Up Tuesday!!  Cynthia at Quilting is more fun than Housework recently (or not so recently!) held her semiannual Quilty Orphan Adoption Event.  I was happy to participate and hoped to rehome three very different items.

Here is a refresher, along with the winner of each item:

Item ONE:

This is a half-yard cut of quilt shop quality playing card fabric.

WINNER!!!  Chantal from At the Corner of Scrap and Quilts will be receiving this fabric that I have NO MEMORY of ever purchasing and really can't see myself working it into a quilt.  Here's hoping that Chantal is able to do so!!

Item TWO:

Pictured above are TWO unbound, quilted reversible Snowman/ Llama placemats.  Approximate size is 18" x 13" and the extra Llama fabric is 9.5" x WOF.  There is a narrow bit of the partially quilted Llama, as well.

You can get another look HERE by scrolling to Friday's entry.

WINNER!!!  Congratulations to Swooze of Swooze's Quilts and Tall Tales!!  She is the new parent of the Snowman/ Llama placemats.  I look forward to seeing if these become transformed into something other than what they are.


Olfa Chenille Cutter, original price $15.99, package is open.  The cutter was only used once.  (I found a duplicate in my studio!)

WINNER!!!  The quilter chosen (by the sorting hat) to accept ownership of the Chennille Cutter is Tu-Na.  I'll be looking forward to seeing what you create using this interesting tool.

Each of the adoptive parents have been informed that their paperwork has been complete and their new bundle of joy will be on its way to them shortly.

Thank you to those who commented and those who offered to take these little rascals off my hands!!  (OhioLori included.)  YOU might not be able to see a difference in my studio, but I appreciate that there are three fewer items to contend with.  Every little bit helps when there's The Beast (longarm) in your sewing room!

Until next time...
Lighten the Load!!!


  1. I already know where I want to use the card fabric. Don't hold your breath as it won't be for this year but my son has called for a black, red and white quilt. He doesn't know it yet but he will, eventually, sleep with a few deck of cards. :^D Thanks Joy for putting it up for adoption. I'm happy to have it. ;^)

  2. Congrats on finding good homes from your extras.

  3. Cynthia's Orphan Adoption event is such a good idea!!! I didn't have anything this time around but think I might have some things to add for the fall edition. Good for you for passing on some of your extras!

  4. "no memory of ever purchasing" that is going to be my defense next time I come home from the quilt shop!
