Sew Some Love

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

Happy Hump-Day everybody! Hopefully most of you are enjoying a shortened work week.  I have been working steadily at piecing star blocks into tops.  The stars block drive just wrapped up but the new one for Sept/Oct is going now if you want to participate!

CiL has recently received donations from several companies and I will be thanking each one individually here as the Fall goes on. The fabrics below came from StudioE, Henry Glass, A E Nathan, and Blank Quilting (which I guess all have the same parent company). Just look at all those cuts! In the star top above the sashing and border (not pictured) were cut from these fabrics, plus the backing.

Big thank you to those companies for supporting CiL; if you're in the market for fabric please consider supporting them with a purchase! Also big thank you to Nicki, who asked around cooperate donations.

Some Quilt Charities:
Books and a Blanket - quilts for needy children in central Texas, promoting literacy
Covered in Love - quilts for mourning families
Jack's Basket - celebrating babies born with Down Syndrome
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. Wow, that's great! I will be sure to pay attention to the fabric manufacturer in the near future to see if I can't support these companies with my dollars. :-)

  2. Oh my stars! That top looks great. I know the RWB star quilts are popular with the families, so I'm glad you did another block drive of them.

    And wow, what a wonderful batch of donated fabrics! Big thanks to Nicki and the fabric companies. I love that cat panel, and almost bought it earlier this year. Gotta work my way through the panels I already have first though...

  3. Corporate sponsors for CiL? FANTASTIC!!!

  4. The July/Aug quilts are going to be beautiful! I especially like those blocks that have 4 blocks in 1 on your design board. What a unique way to make a 12 1/2" block. What a wonderful assortment of fabrics for future quilts. I'm so glad the fabric companies were willing to donate to this cause.
