    Default Wanted, loving homes

    Hi,

    I have several unfinished quilts that need sandwiching. I have discovered I like piecing, applique, paper piecing, etc lol.
    I am prepared to give them away for free and pay for postage! If would like 1 or them all, please take them off my hands.

    Disclaimer: I have only been sewing, quilting or 3 years, so the tops aren't perfect, but I had fun making them and learning new skills

    Hi and welcome to the forum!

    Those are beautiful tops!

    Is there a local quilting guild in your area? If so, you might want to contact them and ask if they make quilts for charity. If so, I'm sure they would be happy to take them off your hands, finish them and give them a new home!

    If not, there is at least one member of this forum I know of who is making and collecting quilts for the local pediatric intensive care unit (Auntiemern). You might want to contact her and ask if she can use these tops!

    You are so very kind! Yes, I hope you can find some charity group near you but I've heard of the Church Ministry groups, and all the others mentioned. Great idea to just do the parts you like until you want to do more, or not. That's a lovely idea and so thoughtful

    Keep on Quilting and learning :-)

    If you have not yet sent them out..or still deciding on who to send them too...I could use all or even just 1..I do Weighted Sensory quilts and could then donate these to anyone who otherwise could not afford to pay for them. They are wonderful and used for many different types of therapy..in the Sensory/Autism spectrum..thanks in advance..I understand others have replied already..just putting this out there..for now or even in future Linda

    Ruby also picked up on the fact that the offeree is in Australia - pretty expensive travel.

    Surely someone in Australia will pick up on this thread and have a wonderful charity project that can use these.

    Beautiful work, and a beautiful offer.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.
