I have been participating in "I Found a Quilted Heart" online.  The rules are simple and can be found on their site.

These are the hearts I made:

I have hidden them in Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio!

On June 8th, one of my hearts was found at the Erie Canal (the finder reported it as "anytown"):

This fun activity is similar to the painted rocks years ago! Make it and hide it!  Not all will be reported of course, but still know that your heart will bring a smile to a stranger.

This is totally anonymous and here is all you have to do:

The IFAQH community of volunteers place small quilted hearts around the globe to brighten the day of a stranger.  After creating your hearts, print and attach the following tag: 

 I Need A Home 
I Found A Quilted Heart
*Do not add any other words (or images) to the tags or to the hearts. Tags should be plain text.

Now that your heart is tagged, it is time to be placed in a public place to be found by a random stranger. 

So, make a quilted heart and brighten someone's day!
