Sew Some Love Linky

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

The Tyler Modern Guild did a brown bag scrap swap a while back for a project, as a result of which we all ended up with some of each other's scraps.  I was amused to see that some of my scraps made their way back to me in this scrappy tumbler top Janis gave me to finish! I don't doubt we might just have had some fabrics in common to start with, but there are too many of my fabrics in this top to be coincidental. It's nice to see them made into a nice quilt finally :)

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 Circle of Scraps, part of the Circle of Life :)

  2. Kat, what is that plastic mat underneath the tumbler quilt? Do you use that to help baste the quilt? I love hearing about how other people stretch large quilts prior to quilting. I use my wooden floor with tape but it's backbreaking...would love another way! Thanks, Elana

  3. How fun to see your scraps "in action"!!! Great idea for a linky, too!!!
