Sew Some Love Sunday - Little Lou Quilts

Welcome to a special edition of Sew Some Love Sunday!!  I have found a brand new charity accepting preemie quilts.  They are in their "kickstarter" phase.  I meant to post it last week, but it had moved down the list of drafts and I missed it.  Sorry!

I'm a BIG fan of Kelly @ My Quilt Infatuation.  Her weekly Needle and Thread Thursday posts are generally one of the highlights of my week.

A week and a half ago she posted about Little Lou Quilts.  Her son was a preemie so she jumped on board.  Well, I was a preemie, myself.  How could I not, at the very least, pass along the information?!

Here is how you can be a part of Little Lou Quilts:
We know all of you simply love to quilt! Do what you love! All you have to do is sew up a baby quilt and drop it in the mail to LouLou's Fabric Shop! 
Please remember these quilts are for infants. We prefer quilts no larger than 48" square/rectangle, give or take a few inches. (NOTE:  A 36" to 54" range was suggested elsewhere on the site.)  Quilts must come from a smoke-free home. Quilts must be pieced with 100% quilting cotton. Please no flannel, as much as we love the soft cozy feel of flannel, the lint could obstruct little airways. 
Please include a simple card or handwritten note of encouragement and love that can be delivered to the family along with the baby quilt.
Ship to:

LouLou's Fabric Shop
C/O Little Lou Quilts
667 Hardscrabble Road
Morgan, UT 84050

I'm delaying my scheduled post due to the time constraint for prizes that will be available for those who donate in the first 30 days of the program.  To qualify for the drawing, quilts must be received by March 21, 2020!!!  Quilt fast to enter, but they will be continuing to accept Little Lou Quilts indefinitely.  They're small.  You CAN do this!!

Find one fast quilt near the bottom of the page of this post at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  I altered that idea to make the quilt that I'm sending to Little Lou Quilts.  I basically made that quilt in two days, start to finish!  If I had a solid day, it probably could have been done in one day.

The #bushfireblocks post will be released next week.  Come back to see all of the wonderful blocks collected.

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

  1. A wonderful cause, thanks for sharing. I don't normally make projects that small, but it's good to keep them in mind.
