Project Linus

Early last year I was browsing a quilting magazine at Mum’s and read an article about Project Linus. Project Linus is a volunteer organisation established to provide homemade blankets, quilts and incubator covers to babies, children and young people in hospital, shelters and hospices. While I’m not known for completing patchwork projects, but after some first-hand experience of NICU when the little Pickle arrived I could see exactly what impact a Linus quilt could have and dropped them an email about helping out. Since then I’ve taken over updating their existing website with plans for a refresh in the future, and helping to spread the Linus message online.
Are you a crafter? Could you spare some time to create a blanket, quilt or incubator cover – or even just one block of a quilt?
If not, you can always support us on Twitter, Facebook, or make a donation to help provide fabric and supplies.
