Checking in With Stars For Linus

It’s been quite some time since I talked about Stars for Linus here on Sewhooked.

For my new visitors, Stars for Linus is a small thing I do for my favorite blanket making charity, The Linus Connection.

You, my quilting friends, have an open invitation to create 12″ (12 1/2″ unfinished) stars of bright colors on a light background and mail them to me. I turn them into quilts that are donated to The Linus Connection and from there go to children in crisis in Central Texas.

Not up for making stars? I also accept orphan blocks in any size!

It doesn’t get easier to help brighten the life of a child than that!

Want more information? I have an entire page on Stars For Linus linked from my top menu.

Use one of the patterns linked from the Stars for Linus page or any other 12″ star block of your choosing!

      Hi Jenny, we have a number of drop off locations in the Austin area. Honey Bee Quilt Store (on Anderson Mill & Pond Springs Rd in NW Austin) is our prefered drop-off location because one of our volunteers works there. If that’s not convenient to you, you can find the complete list here. Thanks so much, every little bit helps!
