Stars for Linus, An Update

Stars For Linus - Update

It’s been almost a month since the original Stars for Linus post. In that time, I’ve received 30 blocks in the mail!

All completed quilts will be donated to The Linus Connection of Austin, Texas. Our organization is comprised completely of volunteers who make and deliver hand-made quilts, afghans and fleece blankets to children in crisis in Central Texas, including those affected by the wildfires in September of this year.

In September, I asked you to share the love and help the kids affected by those fires by making a Stars For Linus block and mailing it to me to turn into a quilt top.

The very first block arrived just days later.

Each Stars For Linus quilt will be pieced by me and I will turn each one into Linus for delivery to a child that needs it. I will continue to collect Stars indefinitely, so any time you’d like to share a block, feel free to do so!

One Stars For Linus quilt top is pieced and ready to quilt. Another set of blocks  is sorted and ready to piece. A third pile is growing and will soon be a quilt top, too.

I wanted take a minute and share a special thank you to everyone that has sent Stars for Linus blocks so far, in no particular order:

  • Paige J., Nebraska
  • Amber L., Illinois
  • Judee K, California
  • Soma A., California
  • Carol M., Wyoming
  • Lynda M., Illinois
  • Barbara C., New Hampshire
  • Kathy P., Washington
  • Linda F., New Jersey
  • Terri J., California
  • Dawn F., Massachusetts
  • Michele F., Ontario
  • Midge W., Michigan
I will continue to add to this list as the Stars arrive! If you do not see your name here and you know I have received your Stars, please let me know so I can update the list. I don’t want anyone to be left out!
I’ve also received completed quilt tops that are now in the process of being quilted and bound, as well as completed quilts:
  • Jenn F., Oregon
  • JoAnn M, Louisiana
  • Kristel C., Calgary
My yarny friends are not to be forgotten! Afghans received from:
  • Amber L., Illinois
  • Mary C., Oklahoma

I cannot say thank you enough for all of your support for a cause that means so very much to me!

Quilt on!

      I know! It’s been such a joy getting to see what happy fabrics everyone has used in their stars. I’m hoping to get quilt top #2 finished today.
