MidWeek Round up {Sew Some Love}

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

I've been a busy bee lately, hope you've been finding plenty of time to sew, too. First of all I got the first two tops completed from the current Covered in Love block drive.

During the months of July and August any one can join in to make star blocks for Covered in Love through the block drive. Right now it looks like we're on track to make at least six quilts.

I also got my do. Good Stitches blocks done for the month. Louise asked for these wonky star blocks. By the time I made the 4th one I almost had it figured out!  Rory was critical to my success, of course.

Lastly, I got the "tulips" WIP out again and began assembling it into a top. This one started off from some orphan blocks that were given to me and has just grown.

That's my week so far in a nutshell. What charity sewing have you been working on?

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 like how you've grouped the RWB stars so far, especially the smaller stars with more background. They really pop out! The tulips look great with the frogs and turtles. I recognize those from one of Lorna's QALs, but I don't remember the tulips. Are they also one of her blocks?

    No sewing at all for me last week, since it was my turn to travel. But my big pile of wheelchair quilts is all ready to go to Quilted Embrace :)

  2. You really HAVE been busy!!! I'm going to try to get a block or two done for CiL by the end of the month. Wish me luck!

  3. Oh, those star quilts are going to be soooo pretty. You do such a good job of arranging all the blocks that come in to you. How does Rory even know what you are doing...her eyes are closed!
    The tulip quilt is going to be such a fun quilt with the added frogs, turtles & birds. You are so clever!
