Loomis, CA USA

Walking through Loomis I found a pretty pink paisley quilted heart. I have social anxiety and I was feeling really proud of myself for carrying on a conversation with a vendor. Chit chatting is often hard for me with strangers. I was thinking how proud I was of myself and needed to tell my friend who knows how big stuff like that is for me. She always sends me heart emojis when she’s happy for me. When I looked up and say the quilted heart hanging on a tree past Taylor’s. It was like the universe was giving me a hug and a congratulations for doing something I can’t often do. Share...

Reported Heart with Perfect Timing Oct12

Reported Heart with Perfect Timing...

Thanks to all who take the time to report a heart as found.  Sometimes, the person who created the heart just needs to know that it found a home.  Here is a story from one heart sower:   I just wanted to let you know yesterday was one of the most stressful, scary days of my life. I got a call from my daughter’s school that a mobile crisis unit was on the way to see her at school. They’d found a suicide note & had to talk to her. Words escape me to adequately convey the depth of my feelings when I got that call. Last night was a tear filled sleepless night for me, wondering how I’d missed the signs I felt I should have seen. Being thankful the school caught it & was proactive. Then this morning after dropping my kids off at school, an email appears & one heart reported as found was one of mine. Knowing it made someone at least smile was the glimmer of joy I needed at that very moment. Whomever found it, thank you for sending some of the love I left for you back to me. I really needed it today.       Share...

Granger, IN USA

Such a cute idea!!  I’ve been having a rough couple days emotionally …  missing my pregnancy, constantly wondering “what if..?”, and hoping my child knows I loved him even though I never met him.  You truly never know the pain until it happens to you.  I’m trusting God and moving forward but I still have my moments.  Today, Vinnie and I stopped at the post office and I noticed a small heart hanging from the tree.  It wasn’t easy to see but it was right where we parked.  We read it and I instantly looked at Vin and thought about our baby.  Maybe that was God’s way of telling me that everything is ok and baby Rulli is being loved on up there in heaven.  It could also be a sign that my baby loves me too even though he never got to meet me.  Maybe it was just meant to be!  You never know.. either way, thank you to whoever made and left this heart on a tree at the Granger post office.  It truly made my day <3     Share...

Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada...

Today I found this heart at a view point at Niagara Falls, we traveled from the uk last Saturday to put our 25 year old sons ashes over the falls on Monday evening from a helicopter, my son was a dare devil and lived life to the full and we have friends here and wanted to bring some of his ashes here. I couldn’t believe it when I saw this heart ❤️ hanging there , thank you so much whoever left it there it really means a lot to us. God bless you.   Share...

State College, PA USA...

It was the Monday after probably one of the most stressful weeks of my life. I am a student at Penn State University and had 4 exams the previous week, three of which were accounting so clearly not fun. I have been a victim of anxiety for awhile now but for some reason it really hit a new level that I had never experienced before towards the end of last week. It got so unbearable I did not leave my apartment once from Thursday to Sunday due to the stress that I had been feeling. Monday rolled around and I forced myself to get out of bed and get to class, even though the dread and nervousness lingered in my body. I told myself just to make it through class and then I can have a nice peaceful day to myself. I got probably about 30 minutes through my first one before I had to leave due to yet another panic attack. It was in the business building so I knew the best and closest place to go was right across the street to the arboretum. I stayed there for probably about 4-5 hours before I had the courage to leave and walk home. I was walking by a railing and saw something dangling there that I guess no one else had seemed to notice, at least none of the people I saw walking in front of me. So I stopped obviously and picked it up and read “I need a home. Someone made this heart just for you.” This was at exactly 6:30 pm and I know this because I immediately FaceTimed my mom crying, but this time not out of panic, but of an overwhelming sense of relief. My mom was the...

I feel I must preface this by saying that my story sounds like just that – a story. It is not- it is true it really happened this way . This is how ifoundaquiltedheart. I’ve been having a really hard time recently and I was on the phone crying (not complaining, genuinely and tearfully crying) to my husband about how I know that there is no such thing as a nervous breakdown but that’s what it feels like. I knew I was depressed but I didn’t feel sad; I felt like my body was turning on me and like my walls were caving in and I felt like crying all the time. After explaining all this to my husband over the phone I was slowly walking down the hallway and this heart caught my eye. I don’t know what possessed me to take a closer look but I did. I saw there was a tag with something written on it. Without picking it up I read “I need a home”. At that point I picked it up and saw ifoundaquiltedheart.com on the back of the tag. At that point I knew I was supposed to take it, and it felt like a sign. I went on the website and read that it was meant for me and it was made and left to brighten the day of a stranger. Well, it did brighten my day when I needed it the most. I’m still not well, but I go on; my story isn’t over. Sincerely thank you <3 Share...

Lancaster, PA USA

Earlier today, while sitting on a garden wall in front of the Lancaster City Visitor Center, I noticed what I thought was a baby’s ‘blankie’ of some kind lying on the other end of wall. Fearing it was accidentally left behind, I figured I’d just hang it up on a nearby tree branch, so it would be easier to see/find should the rightful owner return to come look for it. It was at this point that I noticed the IFAQH / “I need a home” tag and website. While curiosity may have killed the cat, this one got the best of me; so, after hanging the quilt on the branch, I sat back down and visited the website, with every intention of leaving it there in the tree. Of course, after reading about IFAQH, I soon came to the realization that this quilted heart was created just for me and because I was loved. Needless to say, I removed ‘my’ quilted heart from the branch on which I had hung it and brought it back to its new home. On a personal note, this gesture simply could not have come at a better (or should I say ‘worse’) time for me. Unfortunately, I’m really not in a good place in my life right now, and I cannot put into words how obliged I am to have been gifted this quilted heart at this time. I suppose this is the Universe’s way of helping me when I need it most, reminding me how truly loved I am. To everyone involved in IFAQH, especially the individual who quilted this heart for me, thank you and best of luck in life and love to you and yours. Share...

Anytown, WI USA

I found my heart sitting on a table in the cafe at Barnes and Noble (in Wisconsin) that I sadly don’t work at anymore. It was during my last week there, on sept. 21st, and was feeling bummed that day about leaving after 5 1/2 years. I went out to do a round of cleaning tables and found this lovely little heart that said “I need a home. Take me with you!” Definitely made my day!! Kinda like it was a sign that I’m doing the right thing by moving on and doing what my heart tells me. To follow my dreams and do something else in life that I love. Share...

Pittsfield, MA Berkshire County USA...

I’m dog sitting for a friend and took the pup out for a walk late tonight after work. I found the heart hanging on the lamp post next to the “walk” button. It’s been a tough week. Lots of big decisions, anxieties and questions of what to do involving work and my career. The one thing I know being that I love where I live, and think I belong here. This heart came to me at the perfect time. I know that my heart belongs here, and this really proved that. What an amazing way to change things around. Thank you to whoever did this! You truly have changed my week around for the better, and possibly my life. Share...

Tough day that day. Worked 6 hour shift on 2 hours of sleep. 75 Cents in my pocket. Didnt eat all day. Friend was gonna give me a ride home and his car wouldnt start. Boy i was pretty pissed👿. I told myself, sit down and remain calm. When i went to sit down on the curb i slipped from a puddle of oil or something slimy. And gracefully fell onto this bush. Low and below, deep inside this bush, #ifoundaquiltedheart. A tear drops from my eye. been 3 or 4 days now. Still have in my pocket. My lil reminder. im loved. Need more of that in the world… Love. Great idea. Glad i found one. It was like winning the lottery. Found this gem at Costco, Palomar Airport Rd, Carlsbad, Ca. You made my day. And changed my life. Everything happens for a reason. YOU!!

Hartford, VT, USA

Twice I walked past this heart coming and going into the White River Junction VA Medical Center, I noticed it but just thought it was a tag identifying the shrub it was in. I decided to see just what it was, I first saw the side of the tag saying “I found a quilted heart, Please report me as found” and thought it was just something neat to report, BUT then I turned the tag over and saw the message on the other side to “please take me home I was made just for you”. Wow, I can have it! Once I got it off the shrub I really studied the fabric and the cute little bird button on it, I knew it was for ME! My bird loving brother who was tragically killed in an electrocution accident 2 years ago, and I also loved lemon, Lemon poppy seed muffins were the best! It made me cry happy tears to see this heart. THANK YOU to whoever placed this heart, I will treasure it always. Share...

Anytown, USA

Heartfelt Wishes – I was feeling particularly blue today. It is cold and damp outside and the weather matched my sadness. My sweet niece died on Friday and her death at such a young age has weighed heavy on my heart. There are other complications – family issues – that I cannot share but bring tears to my eyes when I think about them. This small gesture – a quilted heart – was a gift from an angel. Thank you, Dear Angel. You are light in darkness. Share...

Vacaville, CA USA

I was driving along, distraught over a recent unfortunate chain of events and finding myself a victim of a dishonest bank refinance on a commercial property my husband and I own and operate our business out of, I had to pull over on the side of the road… Feeling completely hopeless and as though I had been robbed of 25 years of building a business (too long of a story to share)… suffice it to say sadly there are ambitious, greedy, evil, self serving people who cleverly striped us of our rights to it without us even knowing it… I was feeling like giving up … I was disappointed in humanity and life in general… I’m a Christian… and deep inside I believe nothing comes into my life but by way of God first. I reconciled I had to be okay with this- that God had a higher purpose for allowing it. I called my daughter as I sat there by the side of the road and we prayed together. I felt heart broken. Heart broken for so many reasons… I loved God with all my heart and I believed He loved me too… trying to come to terms with the meaning of this all – I asked had I disappointed God and was this a consequence? Was there something within me that God saw that needed to be dealt with that I was missing? I sat there talking to her, listening to myself through her voice- all the things I have said to her in her lifetime about God, His faithfulness, His love- about how we hold onto the things of this world so tightly – that God would rather us value Him above all things… she was now encouraging me with truths...

Spirit Lake, ID USA

I found a heart tonight in Spirit Lake Idaho. Tonight on my way to the grocery store I was battling with my depression and anxiety and was crying and feeling hopeless. When I got to the store I wiped away my tears and tucked everything in so nobody would notice.  I went walking into the store  and I saw a peg board that was empty, except for this little heart that was pinned to the board.  I decided to check it out, since I love hearts, and when I saw it I read the little note and almost teared up, but this time it was with joy. I wanted to say thank you to whoever started this and to the person who left this heart. It pulled me out of my depression and anxiety and put a smile on my face. I can’t wait to make one and pass it on. Thank you from Winn heart found in Spirit Lake Idaho ♡ Share...

Davis, CA USA

Being single on Valentine’s Day can be a bummer so I thought a walk through the arboretum could cheer me up. In between laughing at ducks fighting for food and staring contests with squirrels, I spotted a purple thing on a bridge. I thought maybe someone lost something but it turned out to be a quilted heart! Thank you random stranger for making my day Here are a few pictures of where the heart was found:     Share...
