On Facebook there is a group that does art abandonment. I joined a while ago and have littered town with little paintings and embroideries but on a weekend full of finishes and a new spring cleaning in the sewing room. I finished this smallish lap quilt. And decided to drop it in the park.



At 11 am I left this here.

When I drove past again at 3:10 it was gone.

Beautiful quilt & an awsome idea. I may have to think about stealing the idea. Can I ask what the tag says?

I've heard of abandoned art but never thought of a quilt - I, too, might have to 'steal' this idea.

How pleasant! And what a great use of scrap fabric. Is it tied or machine stitched? What a lucky recipient!

I bet it made someone's day!!  I hope you hear from them!

I like this idea for RAK...small quilted items would be more up my alley than abandoned pieces of art.

It is a lovely scrappy quilt!
