Project Linus Day


In honor of Project Linus Day, Feb 21: Make a blanket or quilt for a child and donate it to Project Linus or any community charity of your choice! 

 The Project Linus Mission is to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets. S far, over three million blankets have been given to children in need since their inception in 1995. 

 I have just added to my huge list of Free Quilt Patterns and especially these links to Free Babies and Childrens Quilt Patterns (and have double checked for broken links!) This list 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/

And thank you to the founders for this:


Project Linus: free sewing, knitting and crocheting patterns for babies

link over to their own page as they have their own direct links to all you could want and need in one spot including!!!....

a listing for this, my own dear blog and website:

With Hearts and Hands
Yes, this is a blog site, but do not let that fool you! Quilter Michele Bilyeu has gathered a GIGANTIC listing of links to thousands of patterns that are sure to please any quilter! On her blog you will find great links on her 2,500 Free Quilt Patterns and Huge List of Free Quilt Block Patterns pages. She even has a blog entry in memory of Project Linus Blanket Make a Blanket Day held the third Saturday of February each year. This page is Free Babies, Childrens Quilt Patterns. This is one website you will not want to miss!

Thank you and bless all you do Project Linus!!!

It's always great to have those links, thanks. Our Linus group gets bored unless we switch off the kind of quilts we make.
There were 250+ at the Central Illinois Make A Blanket Day on Saturday, wow.

What a wonderful list. There are more than a few that I am definitely going to check out and use! I've learned when I need a good free pattern to share at bee with my quilting group, this blog is the happening place to check out!
