One of my summer sewing traditions these last few years has been to participate in 100 Quilts for Kids, first sponsored by Katie/Swim Bike Quilt and currently by Heather/Quilts in the Queue. One thing I love about this quilt drive is that you are encouraged to donate your quilts locally. So each year, I've given mine to my local chapter of Project Linus.

I thought you might enjoy seeing the quilts I've donated in past years, as they have all been simple ones that have been fun yet non-stressful to sew together. I've linked each quilt name to the pattern or tutorial for easy reference.

And while I'm hoping to make another donation quilt by the end of September, so far I have 2¢ Stamp all ready to go.

If you're interested in joining in, Heather posted a few ideas recently and has a Charity Quilt Inspiration board full of them. There's also the #100quilts4kids hashtag on Instagram and the finished quilt link up itself - plenty of inspiration to create a special quilt to share.

  1. I love your latest contribution! The squares bordered by the soft yellow is absolutely lovely! I am keen to make more charity quilts too!
