Sew Some Love Link-up

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

I got to try something new this weekend.  Friends of mine are fostering a baby who just got a PEG tube placed for feeding troubles.  These belly pads, based on a tutorial from Hopeful Threads, will protect baby's skin from chafing and from any leakage.  And keep him looking fashionable at the same time!

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. Those are sweet fabrics to soften up a medical device! I hope the baby doesn't need the PEG tube for very long, but I'm glad there's a way to get him fed.

  2. Those are great, creative and generous. What a thoughtful project Kat!!

  3. I've never seen anything like this. It's a great little project and I'm sure it makes baby feel a lot more comfortable.
