Sew Some Love

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

Yesterday was the first day of cool weather here that actually felt like Fall! I can't wait for the cooler temperatures to get here to stay.  It puts me in the mood to sit down and sew up some of the beautiful scrappy susannah blocks coming in through the block drive.  If you want to join in with Covered in Love's block drive this one will run until the end of October :)

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
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. It's looking so gorgeous. Makes me think of pumpkins, hay rides, corn stalks and apple cider all at the same time!

  2. I'll get my blocks to you by the end of the week. Only had enough "fall" fabric for 2 blocks. :( Will try to do better on the next block drive. That's going to make a beautiful fall quilt for someone.
