Sew Some Love

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

This week I assembled some donated black and white paper pieced blocks along with black and white scraps to make this top.  The blocks, each 8" finished, were originally part of some kind of block swap or bee and each was signed on the back of the paper by the maker.

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. Cool modern blocks! They'll make a really nice quilt.

  2. When I made a quilt for Covered in Love last year (via H2H) I didn't realize you had a blog of your own. If I can find a way to get your posts via email I'm signing up! I've been meaning to make another quilt for ETMC, just have to knock out a few other projects first.

  3. It's good to see so many groups doing charity quilting. Thanks for the invite. You're always invited to show your progress, charity or otherwise at WIPs Be Gone. Blessings,
