Spring 2017 Quilty Orphan Adoption Event

    This was a perfect start to the day. I have been trying to clean out what I am not using. When I read Cynthia Brunz's blog this morning,  http://quiltingismorefunthanhousework.blogspot.com/2017/03/spring-2017-quilty-orphan-adoption-event.html,  I knew what to pull out and photograph. Someone had given me these heart blocks a while ago. There are many fused and zig zagged (over 50), some fused on (about 10), and some to fuse on. The blocks are 7" unfinished. The hearts are about 5" wide at the fullest. The fusible is a stiff one. 
    I make comfort quilts, but I don't want to quilt these and put them together. I do not like working with fused blocks. So, if you want to adopt these blocks:
1. Leave a comment with an email (not a no response blogger)
2. Strongly urge the quilt(s) made with these be give away quilts (charity quilts). 
3. Be in the USA- don't want to ship international.
4. Monday morning, all the names will be put in a bag and drawn out by my 5 year old granddaughter. I will mail them after notifying the winner to get an address. If I can't make contact, Jolene will pull another name.

There is nothing like project that is already well on its way! I'd be happy to have these blocks for my church quilting group which makes quilts for a homeless shelter for families. Thank you. sjvonfumetti at yahoo dot com

These blocks are great! I make quilts for Hospice and have increased my goal for 2017 from six to twelve. These would definitely help greatly! heartscreations@outlook.com

I would be happy to put these blocks into comfort quilts - even the fused ones. I work with two organizations that make quilts for kids in the local hospitals as well as Fisher House (like Ronald McDonald house, except for military families).

Thank for the chance to make more comfort quilts.

I'd love for a chance of Jolene picking my name. I make a several charity quilts with my local quilt guild every year. These blocks would be perfect for it. I'm in Ohio, USA! Thanks.
