Free Babies and Childrens Quilt Patterns +: Updated for 2013



In honor of Project Linus Day, Feb 21, but in honor of all children, and all charitable projects for children... any and all days of the year: Make a blanket or quilt for a child and donate it to Project Linus or any community charity of your choice! Shown above...my little 3-D Pinwheels Baby Quilt 40" X 40" quilt...one of my favorite 'go to' baby quilt patterns..and I offer it for free, just like all of the others, below!


And for that, I have just added to my huge list of Free Quilt Patterns by creating a category of free patterns perfect for children. It also includes some doll quilts and patterns to be used for American Girl Dolls just for fun.

To find a Project Linus Chapter near you, check out http://www.projectlinus.org/. To find other charitable giving organizations for children, check out Quilts for Kids and Downy's Quilts for Kids Comfort programs ,AZ Blankets for Kids ,Wrap Them in Love,Quilts 4 Leukaemia, Sunshine Quilts , Margaret's Hope Chest, Binky Patrol and so many others. Any local hospital that serves children with special medical needs will almost have quilt donation programs.

Please acknowledge my hard work by simply mentioning that my blog With Heart and Hands contains a post which links to over 2,500 Free Quilt Patterns that are continually being updated. Or even better, see if you can follow my directions and Add a Widget...see sidebar!

Preemie and Bereavement Quilts,Shown above: my own simple 10" to 15" quilts with ribbons sewn on for ties. If you want the bottom to fold up as shown, make them a larger size or sew in another simple square section, folded into a triangle shape at one corner to make a little pocket-pouch.

Many websites offer a variety of fetal demise pouches, wraps, blankets, or simple quilts or garment. Mothers are often offended by the medical term of "Fetal Demise."
It is technically a miscarriage, or a still birth, of a non-viable fetus or baby.
Sad and and often terrible words for the loss of a tiny little whether it is prior to 12 weeks or 16 weeks gestation of in the second or third trimester...or even for some....delivered at birth.
My apologies if I repeat the medical terms that often sound so callous to those who are grieving, but they are the words that many use as they search for these patterns.
