   I received these adorable flannel blocks a while back from Loft Creations.  After 3 foot surgeries and a wedding, I am back in business on my NEW sewing machine (more on that later) and this is the first of many Project Linus blankets to be donated made from the blocks.
   I have shared the blocks with my mom and grandma to also make donation blankets for Project Linus.

The Project Linus Mission

Project Linus is comprised of hundreds of local chapters and thousands of volunteers across the United States. Each volunteer and local chapter all work together to help us achieve our mission which is to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer "blanketeers."
Together we have distributed over three million blankets to children in need since our inception in 1995.

Thank you to Loft Creations for your fun idea and donation! 

Have a great day!
Blanketeer Tara.


  1. Project Linus is such a wonderful charity. This is such a darling quilt and will provide comfort to a child in need. I'm so very happy to hear of unselfish quilters doing good deeds for others.

    Your wedding pictures are lovely. Congratulations!
