free stuff...

Nope, it's not a give-away in the fun sense of the word, but it's free stuff all the same. I'm doing some cleaning up of the sewing room and getting rid of things I know I'll never use. Rather than just toss these I had the thought that maybe somewhere there was someone who might want them. Seriously you will not hurt my feelings if you don't want them...hey, I don't.

So we'll work it this way: if one person wants them...great! If more than one person wants them then I'll draw names and winner takes them. If you only want some of them, that's fine too and maybe we can divey them up!

These were made in the one and only class I ever took...Dresden pinwheels things made from doing the stack and cut method...So here's what I have: 10 completed Dresdens (above) with NO centers...8 1/4" wide from point to point....

And 2 packs of already cut wedges for the same size...10 Dresdens in each pack...for a total of 20 more Dresden circles.
6 smaller Dresdens 7 1/2" from point to point with green centers. They can easily be removed and changed.

Plus 8 pre-cut wedge bundles for 8 more smaller Dresdens.

I've already made 2 quilts with these things and I have no plans for any more, so if you want them they are yours FREE~! Here's how I set mine 4 years ago...see how long these have sat around?? Thanks ladies!

WOW! I'm shocked. I honestly thought nobody would want these guys, so I'm happy to pass them along. So that anyone who comes by knows...I'll leave it open until Friday at noon and then put the names in a hat and have hubby draw out a name. IF the winner doesn't want all of them, I'll go to the second name drawn and see if you want the rest of them.

OOOOOOOOhhhhhhhhhhhh! I would love the large (and/or small) completed plates. We're making charity quilts for the local childrens shelter and I think the teenagers would think these were awesome! I'm sure you will have tons of takers, so I'll keep my fingers crossed and keep checking in. Thanks!!!!

How could anyone not want them? I'd be thrilled to have my name drawn.

Sharon said...

Wow, I too would love some of this. I would be happy with the 8 pre-cut wedges for the smaller Dresdens (if you would ship to more than one person?) THey would make a great runner!

Oh Judy....I tried to be firs to comment when this post was just minutes old and my computer started acting up! If there is a name drawing can I be added?

dot said...

Oh I would be interested if the offer is still open. I would like either the larger or smaller completed dresdens. I have a good idea already floating in my head. Actually the smaller ones would work better for the idea. Hope I can be put in a drawing.

Those are sooo cool! When I first saw the picture before I read the text I was thinking "Judy made those?"! They really look great though. I've been wanting to try that method someday! We did a small one once for a friend who likes pigs and fussy cut the wedges for the pigs! Have fun cleaning!

Thanks for offering these blocks, they look like they'd be great to put together for the bushfire victims here in Australia, all aussie quilters are donating blocks & quilts to the victims. I would love to win them
