Sew Some Love

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

Sometimes you discover pretty fabric in your stash and just have to drop everything and sew it up.  That's what happened when I rediscovered these Northcott Stonehenge 2.5" strips one of you donated.

I went simple with a jelly roll race design.  The strips looked so pretty laid out in the package, I just kept them in the same order to sew them together.  Speaking of Northcott Fabrics, they were kind enough to donate some yardage to Covered in Love a while back. I can't wait to use that fabric with the bright HSTs on it!

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. What a nice donation! Are you thinking you'll use the brights with the various grays? Maybe mix in a few bright solids?

  2. That is going to be SEW pretty!! Those donation fabrics will be great with that quilt top. Have fun with the finishing!

  3. I want to try the simple jelly roll race quilt some day. Looking forward to seeing yours finished. Can't start on anything right now until I get one quilt finished for our Pastor & wife. Just need the border quilted & binding on & I'll be done with it. Hurray for donated fabrics!

  4. How wonderful of Northcott to donate all that fabric! That should keep you busy for a good long time. The jelly roll quilt is a beauty.

  5. I really really like those fabrics! Can't wait to see what you do with them.
