    "I Found a Quilted Heart" Heard of this?

    Maybe I'm just behind the times, but I just found this and thought I'd share.....

    It is a website that encourages quilters to make little quilted hearts and then "sow" them around their communities to brighten someone's day. They suggest that a link to the website be attached so that the receiver can report back if they care to, where the heart was found ad add a little story if they like about how they felt when they found the heart.

    It seems like a sweet little gesture for us quilters to do.

    Anyhow...here's the link, if you're interested. I hope it hasn't been posted before.

    Yes! I've left quilted hearts from California to New England - in fact, one (of the 4) that I left in MA this week was just posted on their site as 'found'! The hearts use up my strips, are easy/fun to make and I think they spread a bit of random kindness to others. I love it when I see my hearts posted - especially, when it's a young child.

    There's never too many hearts - I say let's all make some and spread them around!

    Edited to add: The site offers the ability to print small tags that make it easy for the recipient to get to the website too! I hand write on the other side "I need a home!" to let the person know it's ok to take/keep it.

    in our rainy and mouse-y pacific nw they wouldn't last long left out around. I do love seeing painted rocks around though. I never pick them up, just appreciate and leave for the next person to appreciate also.

    I think this is a sweet idea. I was looking through the hearts found & saw that several were found in a town just down from where I live. Looks like someone in my neighboring town is making them. So good to see.

    I've done these and the painted rocks. So far none of my hearts have been reported as found, but several of my rocks have. It's a lot of fun!
