Sew Some Love Linky

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

I'm doing some traveling again this summer and posting a lot of content to the blog that was finished earlier.  I came across this photo today from a few weeks ago of Rory holding down a pile of quilts awaiting binding. No quilts escaping on her watch!

If you don't read Cynthia's blog at "Quilting is More Fun Than Housework" definitely head over there and check out the progress she has made on the current block drive. She is doing a beautiful job putting together your blocks! The May/June block drive is almost wrapped up and the new one will launch Thursday night, so be on the lookout for that post!

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:
Books and a Blanket - quilts for needy children in central Texas, promoting literacy
Covered in Love - quilts for mourning families
Kennel Quilts - small quilts for animals in need
Margaret's Hope Chest - several programs for children and adults
My Very Own Blanket - quilts for children in foster care
Ovarian Cancer Quilt Project - quilts auctioned to raise money for cancer research
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. The Sunlight In Winter blog is new to me; I'm glad she linked up!

  2. Looks like Rory is doing her job nicely. I'm glad you are getting to do some traveling this summer. Looking forward to the next block drive.
