Sew Some Love

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

Happy Thanksgiving everybody (well, all the Americans, that is)!  I hope you're looking forward to a holiday surrounded by family and good food.

I'm giving thanks for all the supporters of Covered in Love, like my do. Good Stitches Circle who recently sent in these beautiful quilts!

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. Love that quilt on the right! I keep meaning to make one of those types, where you stitch the top, then slice it a different direction and reshuffle the blocks. Very cool!

  2. Dear Kat, I have some unexpected news. I finished my Southwest Daybreak quilt and was about to send you a post. At that moment my daughter stopped by with some groceries and loved the top. I had thought she did not like quilts, but I was mistaken. She asked and I gave it to her. She wants a fleece backing, which gives her an excuse to go to Joanne's sale. But I will be sending you another in the future.

  3. I really love the neutral quilt with the red slashes. I've used that technique a few times, but you have motivated me to do more. I appreciate your charity efforts and hope to join in on the November/December block drive.

  4. Two more beautiful quilts to add to the group. You've really been busy this month.
