Sew Some Love

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

October was my month to be the Queen Bee in my do. Good Stitches circle and the blocks have been trickling in.  We're doing the Double Square Star block from Missouri quilt company in blues, greens, and greys.  That's what's on my design wall this week for charity, what about you?

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. Cool block! How did I miss that one from MSQC? Off to check out the tute now.

    I've got two finishes for charity sitting on my table and need to get motivated to blog about them. We're at anchor now so I can't wash and dry them yet, and outside photos are tricky in the constant wind.

  2. Those Double Square Stars are really pretty. Will make very pretty quilts in those colors. I've been busy working on the Nov/Dec blocks for CIL & some children's medical face masks for charity. Thought I better get busy before the holidays bog me down.
