I am a contributing designer over at FaveQuilts.com and an author with Leisure Arts.

When they contacted me about promoting a Quilt Drive for Project Linus I was thrilled to hop on board.   I’ve donated to Project Linus, individually in the past.  This is different.  This is a full-on drive.  It even has prize opportunities sponsored by Leisure Arts.

Read more about the drive HERE.

Personally, I think I’m going to send my Plus Quilt.  It is so fast and is just the right size.

Specs:

There are, however, a few rules to make sure that Project Linus can accept and distribute your generous donation. So while you’re planning, please keep in mind the following:

  • The smallest size quilt that Project Linus can accept is 36″x 36″.
  • It is important the length and width are in proportion to each other.  Some blankets that Project Linus receives are very long and narrow which makes a nice scarf instead of a blanket!
  • Project Linus donates blankets to children from newborn up to eighteen years of age.
  • The materials must be all new, washable and in child-friendly patterns.  If a fabric has baby bottles and ducks on it, a smaller blanket should be crafted for a toddler.  If the fabric has sports teams or other teen age images, the blanket should be made for an older child.
  • It is acceptable for the blanket to be “tied,” although Project Linus requests that embroidery floss be used instead of yarn.
  • Nothing should be attached to the quilts–no buttons or other ornamentation, no glitter, etc.
  • If the blanket is made in a house that has pets, the blanket must be washed, dried and put into a plastic bag.
  • The blanket must be checked for pins before donating it to Project Linus.
  • We cannot accept any blanket made in a smoking environment.
