A Different Kind of Friday

Hello, friends.

Let me start by saying I completely forgot about Free Pattern Friday this week. My mind has been elsewhere. I’m sure that once I explain, you’ll understand.

For most of the week, I’ve been fielding emails and social media messages in my role for The Linus Connection. Our organization is doing what we can to help with the relief efforts for Hurricane Harvey evacuees by providing handmade blankets to children displaced from their homes.

In addition to our local volunteers, we’ve had quilters and blanket makers from all over the country step up to help. The outpouring of love and helping hands has been amazing.

If you’d like to help, check out this post on the Linus website for more information. I’m the Jennifer listed in the graphic above, so you have questions, please feel free to ask! You can comment here or contact me at my Linus email.

If you’re local, you can drop handmade blankets & quilts off at Honey Bee Quilt Store. We will continue to collect blankets & quilts as usual at our monthly meeting on September 16.

@thelinusconnection = 💟 @Regrann from @thelinusconnection - First delivery to #adrn! #quiltsforharvey #linusconnection #quiltforgood #texasstrong #Austincares - #regrann

As of yesterday, we’ve been able to get over 200 handmade quilts, yarn blankets, and fleece blankets into the hands of the Austin Disaster Relief Network. Those blankets will go directly to those children affected by hurricane-related evacuations.

To stay up to date on what The Linus Connection is doing to help, follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

#lionking quilt 2, quilted and ready to trim and bind for @thelinusconnection. Blocks made by the @fandominstitches Facebook group. Designed, pieced, and quilted by me. #quiltforgood #quiltsforharvey #quiltsfortexasIn between email, social media messages, and other updates, I’ve been working furiously to finish a few of my Linus WIPs. Lion King Quilt 2 is quilted and needs binding. I’ve got another UFO block quilt top quilted. It also needs binding. I’m hoping to get those finished today.
#spiderman and #batman fleece remnants from @joann_stores to make a couple of fun, quick blankets for @thelinusconnection's effort to provide handmade blankets to children affected by #hurricaneharvey. I've also got two quilts to bind. Work, work, work! #

Yesterday, I needed to run to Jo-Ann’s and I scored two good sized remnants of fleece while I was there, one Spiderman, and one Batman. I’ll be turning both of these into blankets for Linus, too.

Want to help, but don’t want to make a quilt or blanket?

Donate to the Austin Disaster Relief Network. This is a local organization. They will get much-needed donations where they need to go. More about their efforts for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Donate to Austin Pets Alive. They are the non-profit where we adopted our fluffy orange cats, Ramses & Iliad. APA and their volunteers have rescued hundreds of displaced pets and are collecting supplies to help take care of them. There is loads more information on their Facebook page.

Make a pillowcase and donate it for the new pillows going on the shelter beds. Honey Bee Quilt Store has free kits. Contact the store for more information. You can also use one my free tutorials to make a pillowcase. Video here. Text version here.

These are just a few of the ways you can get involved. These are some of my personal favorite ways to help. Do what works best for you.

Stay safe,

Free Pattern Friday – Big Linus ♥

free-pattern-friday

Welcome back to Free Pattern Friday!

After an April that was all about ME, I wanted to share some fun charity projects in May!

First up is a child-sized quilt pattern I designed inspired by the heart logo of my favorite blanket making charity, The Linus Connection.

heart for instagram

Made of 5 1/2″ squares and half square triangles, this is an easy peasy quilt to chain piece. Make it for a wee one you love or for your favorite blanket charity.

Bonus points if you make one for The Linus Connection!

Get this free pattern on Craftsy

or

Save/Print from Google Drive

This is a quick to watch tutorial on chain piecing from Shiny Happy World.
