UFO Giveaway

Okay, first of all, I did not go back for the table…..yet….. I might. It is exactly like one I already have. I rather had my heart set on one with red trim and a couple chairs……I may well regret leaving it. Maybe I’ll go back….

Anyway! To the problem at hand.

Ever get sick of a fabric or project? So sick of it you just can’t make yourself finish? I bought this FQ bundle of Noteworthy by Sweetwater back in September of 2013.


I have made 4 quilts from it and it is almost gone. You can see them here, here, and here. All I have left are these blocks.


I was going to make another baby quilt out of these. But I just don’t want to. I am sick to death of these fabrics. And life is too short to work on projects you don’t like.

So, if any of you would like to adopt a project, leave me a comment below and I will draw a number out of a hat and send it on to you! You do not have to feel obligated to finish this as is. Cut it up, rearrange, make a bag, whatever. If I come across anymore bits of this, I will throw those in the package as well. I would love to see a picture if you finish something from these, but that is not a requirement by any means.

So sorry, but I am limiting this to those of you within the US due to the high cost of postage. So leave me a comment if you want in the draw! I will choose a name on Saturday.

That’s one way to cross a UFOoff your list!

P.S. I will throw a little something handmade into the package as well, just to sweeten the pot a bit!

Linking up with Sew Fresh Quilts

    Katy, there is a woman at church who just had a baby. I do not know her personally but I have sat next to her through her whole pregnancy. Well , now it’s time to know her. I want to make her a baby quilt and this design would be perfect!

  2. Cheri Terry says:

    My daughter would love theses colors and she is a quilter too. They would save me money on birthday gifts lol.

  3. What a clever way to check off a UFO, and help someone in the process! This would make a perfect baby quilt for my local children’s quilt group, and I would happily finish this quilt for them. Thanks for the opportunity!

  4. Go back and get the table. You’ll regret it if you don’t.

  5. Toni Anne Potter says:

    I’d love to make a baby quilt to pass on, I even have a bit of that line in my stash. What a great idea! I started a baby quilt while pregnant, partly through I hated looking at it, really hated the fabric. Years later I finally gave it to a library group with a few large bags of fabric that I didn’t like anymore. They were looking for fabric donations and, they loved getting what I had. It was the prefect win, win situation as I was moving my sewing room, to a smaller room. Thanks for the generous offer, good luck everyone! Toni Anne ;->

  6. Susan Price says:

    Do not include me in the drawing for the UFO, I have many of my own. In fact, if you want to draw a second number and they don’t mind you sharing their address with me, I will send a second person a UFO!

  7. June Damrow says:

    Your UFO would be a perfect quilt for Project Linus. I’d love to finish it!

  8. Val W says:

    What a fabulous way to tidy up! It’s like a round robin that doesn’t come back – ever. I don’t have any UFOs of my own, but I’m willing to adopt.

  9. Linda West says:

    That is a generous offer! I understand getting tired of sewing the same fabrics too many times. That was a beautiful FQ bundle.

  10. NorahS says:

    I would love to put these to use. Love that fabric!

  11. Quiltmouse says:

    I think I have some of that fabric left over from a Quilt Along a couple of years ago! (And unfortunately, it is one of my UFO’s! LOL) But I’m heading to a quilting retreat soon and will be taking it to work on. My vote – go back for the table. If you later find exactly what you want, then you can get that, too!

  12. piecefulwendy says:

    I agree — go back for the table. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stood on the fence and lost out. Disappointing, indeed. And then keep looking for the one with the red trim. 🙂

  13. Sandra B says:

  20. Mary says:

    I would love to finish your project! I am making quilts for a local church to give out to families in need. They help many families with diapers and other needs for babies and kids.

  21. Sheri Lesh says:

    I am always game for a finish it challenge. Sounds like fun!

  22. If I was in the US I would definitely be putting my hand up – I love these blocks!!

  23. lois92346 says:

    I think the bricks would make cute four patches and may turn out large enough for a doll quilt. It would be fun to play with the pieces. As far as the table goes, I know it’s a tough decision but I would wait for a red trimmed one to come along. You know one is out there waiting for you. 🙂

  24. Judy Pearce says:

    I just love this line and am not tired of it. I made 4 Easter baskets last month. I would love blocks already done!

  25. Lori Morton says:

    Oooh I would looove to win ..love this Line! I would use to make a quilt for new baby our nephew & wife are having in early fall! thank you for chance to win your Give-a-way!

  29. dkhalcomb2 says:

    I have quite a few UFOs but hey what is another? I like the fabrics and there is something about new fabrics that excites me. So this really wouldn’t be a true UFO since it is new to me. Thanks for the offer.

  30. Linda in PA says:

    I love Sweetwater fabrics! I make a lot of scrap quilts and these would look great in one. Thanks for the chance.

  34. Kristy Wilkinson says:

    Those fabrics look like fun. I agree that a Project Linus quilt could be made from them. I love lights as I have lots of darks! Thanks for sharing with us. K-

  35. Dortha says:

    Put my name in the pot. Such pretty colors.

  36. Sue says:

    Katy, I’d be happy to have those, maybe I can turn it into one for the H2H. If you draw my name & want to save on postage, you could send it with Lynn & the QOV’s

  37. Pam says:

    I would love to win these pieces. You are such an inspiration.

    Thank you,


  38. Karen McMahon says:

  43. Judi Smith says:

    What a great addition your Moda fabric would be to my left over forest animal fabric! I could make a baby quilt for my new “soon to be here” grandbaby!
