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.

Sometimes you just want to sew something simple... something pretty. I got the urge to make a quick, pretty patchwork and clear out a little stash last week.  Usually with projects like this my first step is to find a fabric I like with several colors in it, then pull fabrics to match those colors to fill out the quilt. I used my AccuQuiltGo to cut 4.5" strips and strip-piece 16 patches.

The strip piecing used up some remnants from my stash and made a quick top for Covered in Love. What have you been sewing for charity lately?

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. I really love simple patchwork. There's something soothing about little squares, all in neat rows. Pretty colors in this one! Was the pansy print with the green background your inspiration fabric?

  2. I love the simple pretty patchwork you've put together here. It's very calming..

  3. I agree! There is something to be said for sewing squares together. Sorry! Nothing to link up this week. Hoping to deliver my Police Quilt next week.
