Sew Some Love Linkup

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

Things tend to move in waves around here. Some weeks are spent on piecing or binding or photographing; this has been a quilting week.  I was gifted a bunch of cutoffs of wool batting from a longarmer and have been getting to know that material. It sure is cozy and fluffy!  Rory is extremely helpful when I'm basting.

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
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. Kat, they are looking beautiful. I've become addicted to quilting since I started a couple of years ago. I keep increasing my stack of finished quilts and send them off to charities when I see those that touch my heart. I have a few ready for Covered in Love.
