Sewin' sewin' sewin'

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

You know the hotel commercial "I've Been Everywhere" ?  That's what I feel like lately.  I've been traveling for my clinicals for school and my machine's on the road with me. 

I'm steadily chipping away at this rather impressive stack of scrappy susannah blocks you all sent in.  This isn't even all of them! I think we're going to have about a dozen quilts from this block drive.  The Nov/Dec block drive launched a week ago if you want to join in sewing for Covered in Love :)

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. That stack of blocks looks so great! Lots of scrappy goodness :)

  2. Looks like you are going to busy putting all those blocks together. So glad you received so many from the Oct/Nov block drive.
