Sew Some Love Linkup

Welcome to the Sew Some Love linkup!  Please link-up any post about a project you're sewing for charity.

I've been working on using some more orphan blocks from last year's block drives for Covered in Love. This time it's the Sun and Sea and Lattice blocks on the wall.  I'm thinking about doing scrappy piano-key borders on the top and bottom but haven't made up my mind yet.

Covered in Love has been so blessed by donations from quilters, I want you all to see what each other have going on!  For purposes of the linky, I'm going to define "charity" really generally.  If you're sewing a quilt for you co-worker's mom with cancer or your friend's uncle who lost his home, that totally counts!  Anything you're sewing out of the goodness of your heart for someone outside you immediate circle of family and friends. 

Some Quilt Charities:
Covered in Love - quilts for mourning families
Margaret's Hope Chest - several programs for children and adults
My Very Own Blanket - quilts for children in foster care
Project Linus - quilts for children in the hospital
Quilts Beyond Borders -  quilts for poor children around the world
Quilts for Kids - quilts for abused and ill children
Quilts of Valor - quilts for veterans
Threading Hope - children and families in poverty and war torn countries
Victoria's Quilts - quilts for cancer patients
Wrap-a-Smile - quilts for children treated for cleft palate on medical missions
Wrap Them in Love - quilts for children

If you know of any that need added to the list let me know!


  1. Oh, I remember those lattice extra scrap blocks! They look awesome with the blue and gold Sun and Sea colors. This one will be very pretty.

  2. Quilts Beyond Borders is another charity I sew for- Quilts for children in very poor areas of the world.
