Here is my orphan up for adoption!

It is a One Block Wonder that I started many years ago. I used the Daydream panel by Deb Strain for the blocks. (One panel is included.)
The half blocks are made; I have the pieces labeled by row, but the recipient may rearrange at will!
I will include the book and accompanying class notes.
 
To enter this giveaway, please leave a comment with the name of the charity that will receive this quilt when it is finished!
 
Giveaway closes at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday night, June 14.
 
I will select a winner on Monday, June 15.

I would love to have these form my charity Covered in Love (http://katandcatquilts.blogspot.com/p/covered-in-love.html) which provides quilts of comfort to the families of patients who pass away in the hospital where I work. The theme of your panel would be perfect for these folks! I'd use the panel in the quilt, maybe on the backing.

What a wonderful project to put up for adoption! These hexagons are a lot of work and make beautiful quilts. Thanks so much for your generosity and support for my Orphan Adoption Event! It really is appreciated!

Your orphans would be put to good use in a quilt for Project Linus. My sewing group does a fundraiser every year, and I do my own separately, to earn funds to support our quilting efforts for Linus, and any donations are quickly put to good use. Last year the dozen of us made over 200 quilts and blankets for Project Linus, and are on track this year to exceed that as long as we can get the materials! Your lovely blocks would certainly be appreciated, and used.

I'd love to sew these into a quilt for a resident at my local Hospice House!

Hi Julie!
A One Block Wonder was my very first quilt. Your giveaway will make someone very happy! i just love reading all the amazing comments and it does your heart good to see so many people who are so generous with their time and skills! (I'm part of Cyndy's Orphan Adoption Event too, so am doing my best to resist temptation and am not in the running here.)

The quilt would go to a young mother whose house was recently flooded. I am making her two toddlers flannel quilts. I realized she could use a quilt to since insurance isn't really covering everything that needs to be replaced and rebuilt.

I don't have a charity to give this too . But my sister is in a rest home,she has had both legs removed. She would love this. She loves butterflies and the colors are her colors. Made me think of her instantly when I saw this.

I would donate this quilt to the Taos Community Against Violence domestic violence shelter.

This is lovely! I would make a lap quilt or two for our local senior center. :)

I am familiar with the One Block Wonder quilts and would love to do this one. I would make this to give away to our local domestic violence shelter. They do such good work to inform/educate as well as shelter. One of the things they sponsor is a group called Smart Girls for adolescent girls that meets often, especially in the summer. There goal is to help the girls respect themselves enough so that they don't find themselves in a situation where they need the help of the shelter later in life.

I'd finish your quilt as a donation to the North Country Arts and Crafts workshop fundraiser so they could continue to offer classes in the arts (quilting is included) in northern Minnesota.

I love this!!! I would complete the project and give it to our Hospital Auxiliary and they can decide who to give it to or decide on another plan for it!!! Thanks for the chance to pay it forward with something so lovely!!

My small quilt group sews large bed-sized quilts for high risk teens who are in a program to help them earn a high school diploma. If they complete the program, they are given a "graduation" quilt. We try to make at least six to eight quilts a year.
Thank you!
