Sew Some Love

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

This week I fired up my quilting machine again for the first time since May. So good to get back to it!  I quilted one of the Red White and Blue Stars block drive quilts and photographed the process for a tutorial about how I baste quilts using glue sticks.

See those cute little penguins in the block above? The star quilts are coming together and I can't wait to have the whole bunch all finished!

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. Keep that quilting machine purring, Kat!! Looking forward to seeing that stack of Star Quilts.

  2. My favorite fabric but you already knew that! I will use them anywhere I can! I loved your glue tutorial!! You make it look also easy but basting a big quilt is so challenging for me. Thanks for a new way to try.

  3. Thanks for the link party and all the information on all the charities. There were a few I had not heard of before. Andrea

  4. Love the penguins in the block. I need to get more bold/creative & do things like that. I'm such a "go with the flow" type person & don't get to far away from the box.
