Sew Some Love

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

I got back into my UFOs this week and pulled out these tulip blocks Dee Dee sent me ages ago.  There were finished blocks, un-assembled pieces, and partially constructed blocks in all stages.

I needed to cut more 2.5" tone-on-tone white squares to finish the blocks, but my GO! Cutter made that a snap.  Now I've got (61) scrappy red tulip blocks ready to become a top.  I've got some fun ideas for this one.

I also got some more faded quarter cabin tops quilted, so with any luck I'll get at least one bound by Friday.  I want to say a special thank you to everyone who supports Covered in Love.  CiL has been getting some local media attention lately and there was a nice article in the Sunday paper this week. I couldn't do it without you guys :)

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:

  1. Hey, you're famous in Tyler! I wanted to leave a supportive comment on the newspaper article, but it requires a Facebook account. So I'll leave one here: You rock, Kat! :)

  2. Looks like the "inspector" has approved one of the Jan/Feb quilts. :) That was a great article in the newspaper. Publicity is a good thing when it comes to charities. Once word gets out...look out!
