Sew Some Love Sunday - It Helps When You Read the Guidelines

 Welcome to a new edition of Sew Some Love Sunday!!!  This week, we're taking a little break from the Lutheran World Relief project going on here at The Joyful Quilter to hear about another charity project that I have had in the works.  The post could easily have been released in an installment of Tidy Up Tuesday, as it is long overdue.

Let me explain...

When participating in this year's Hands2Help program, I had a project that I thought would work well for this recipient organization:

Emily @ Em's Scrap Bag / Aunt Em's Quilts
Quilty Hugs for Happy Chemo

The problem was that I was working on THREE other H2H quilts at the time and the deadline was looming.


I may be late to the party, but I didn't forget my desire to contribute.  This quilt was finished a day or two ago:


Someone forgot to check the size requirements for contribution to the charity.  That would be me.  :o((

I was hoping to proudly display the cute button that Em designed for those who donated will have to wait for next year's Hands2Help quilt drive.  I've got a collection of LWR quilts waiting to be quilted.

Give a Quilty Hug:

Never fear!  There are other needs to be met.  This little quilt will go along with last month's UFO Club Finish to comfort victims of the fires still burning out West.

Excerpt from that post:

"Just after finishing this post, I found the following donation opportunity (one of several in a post filled with Oregon Wildfire 2020 Quilts information) posted by Lori @ Humble Quilts:

100 quilts went to Talent And Phoenix Elementary school children today. Still need another 350 twin or lap size so every child who has lost their home will have something to snuggle with. Then we will try to serve the middle and high school kids. Please help by sending new or barely used quilts to Sew Creative Ashland at 115 East Main St. Ashland, Oregon 97520

My quilt would be about the right size for a child's snuggle quilt.  It didn't take long to realize that this was where my little quilt was destined to be.  Off it goes!"  :o))

I didn't intend to wait this long to mail that quilt, but I am pleased that two children from the devastated areas might now find comfort in my handiwork.  Do YOU have new or lightly used quilts that you might be able to send?  The fires rage on.

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


  1. All of my smaller finished quilts went to tornado relief here in the mid-state earlier this year. I have several small tops if you are willing to quilt ...

  2. Sometimes, delays happen and sizes are off.... because they were meant to be for something else! So happy the quilt is jetting off for a quilty hug.

  3. No charity quilt is ever wasted and yours will go to an appreciative little person. Hope your LWR project is going well!

  4. Glad you found just the right place to donate this sweet quilt! :)

  5. Congrats on the finish. So glad you found just the right place for the quilt.
