Sew Some Love Sunday - Jack's Basket

Welcome to the first edition of Sew Some Love Sunday for 2018!!  This week, I'd like to share a new-to-me charity.  My friend, Louise, from Quilt Odessey, discovered Jack's Basket along with an on-line quilt guild that she just joined.

I make it my mission to share any new donation opportunities just in case the charity "speaks" to you.  I don't know about you, but I'm always on the lookout for more ways to "do good."

Speaking of doing good...

This is the block that I will be mailing off to Kat for Covered in Love this week:

Here is the block that I made for the Thomas Fire drive:

My Quilt Bee is making blocks, also.  These are the blocks that we've collected so far:

Members have additional blocks to bring to our next meeting.  We may even collect enough to make an entire quilt to send!  Let's hope SEW!!!  :o))

Until next time...
Sew Some Love!!!


  1. Thanks for passing along Jack's Basket's info! Quilters are the most generous people :)

  2. There are so many worthy causes to send to. Thanks for sharing about Jack's Baskets.

  3. Those are lovely blocks and sew good to be involved in a good cause xx

  4. Thanks for your comment! Its always nice to find a fellow North Carolinian quilter. I have the desire to donate quilts. Thanks for the ideas. I would like to donate quilts to UNC Chapel Hill Pediatric Cardiology patients, but don't know if there is a way to do that. My son was a patient there 34 years ago. But any charity would be great. I would even have time to make a block for the "Covered In Love" block drive.

  5. Thanks for sharing the different charities. I sent 4 blocks for the Thomas Fire drive. Your block turned out nicely. I went monochromatic with my versions. I'm not quite adept at mixing colors in one scrappy block.

  6. Thanks for your comment on my blog, encouragement is so lovely! I love your blocks where a secondary pattern jumps out when you put them together,
    hello from the UK

  7. Thanks for sharing info on all the block drives. They often seem more doable to me than getting a whole quilt together. I think the Thomas Fire blocks are so striking when laid out!
