Over the last couple of years, I've finished a bunch of quilts without potential recipients in mind, and I just put the quilts away in a tote, thinking that someday they'll find homes. I finally got tired of having them hidden away in my house, so I recently offered quilts to family and friends on Facebook. To my delight, a number of people took me up on my offer, so now eight of my quilts are in the process of being adopted! A couple are already with their new owners, a few are ready to be shipped to various places across the country, and a couple will be delivered locally. Some of the new owners will be using the quilts as fundraisers for worthwhile organizations.
Most of these quilts are among my favorites (well, frankly, all of my quilts are my favorites...that's why I make them!), but it makes me feel good knowing who the new owners are and knowing that the quilts will be dearly loved and well taken care of.
This is now a great excuse to make some more quilts!
