Sew Some Love Linky

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

I've been away from my sewing machine for a couple month's now, so I'm running low on quilt-content (not to mention getting itchy fingers!)  The photo below is from my whirlwind trip to San Diego in June.

Since I'm not sewing anything I'd like to direct you toward a favorite blogger of mine who sews a TON for charity. Louise lives on a boat (currently off the Gulf of Mexico) which makes her automatically cool, in my opinion.  Despite small spaces and occasional high seas she is a devoted quilter for not only Covered in Love, but also Project Linus, Hands 2 Help, and more.  If you are unfamiliar with her, go check out her blog and consider following!

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
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. Aw, thanks for the shout-out, Kat! I hope you're having a great summer! :)

  2. There are so many great charities that accept quilts! Thanks for putting them all together in one place. --Andrea
