Project Linus

I found out about Project Linus a few months ago through a blog I follow. After learning about the organization I decided I'd like to become one of their blanketeers. I was very excited to find out that a chapter would be opening in my town soon (it opened in April)! Since then I have been sewing away and have the following blankets to donate:

 San Francisco Window Boxes Baby Quilts
   

Scrap Color Baby Quilts


36" square baby blankets (cotton front, minky back)


Self-binding receiving blankets




45" square receiving blankets (flannel front & back)


No-sew fleece blankets (these are so simple - you just need 2 pieces of fleece, a ruler and some scissors!)


I enjoyed meeting with my local coordinator for the first time today. Some of these blankets will be donated to help families affected by the Waldo Canyon Fire and the rest will go to a local hospital. I hope to become more involved with this organization as my local chapter grows.

If you like to sew, knit, crochet or even tie no-sew fleece blankets please check out PROJECT LINUS and see how you can help bring comfort to a child!

Also, check out this charity quilt drive going on all summer:
