One blanket for donation done

One fringed fleece blanket for Project Linus done!
These are quick, easy, and oh-so-cuddly. If you want to make one yourself, the pattern is on the Project Linus website (scroll down to Fringed Fleece Blanket).

If you're doing any charity quilting today for the MLK National Day of Service, please put a photo on your blog and let me know. Tonight or tomorrow I'll post links to everyone's projects. Remember, you don't have to make a whole quilt today, but if you have any time to give to making a block, choosing the pattern, cutting the fabric, etc., let me know. I have some links to simple projects in my previous two posts.

Happy quilting!

I wish I could today, but I have prior commitments. I have, otoh, penciled into my calendar the guild's work day on the 31st. So I'll be cutting, pressing, sewing on charity quilts then.

Have posted a photo of the project that I started working on today. Can't finish a whole quilt in one day (I'm not Eleanor what's her name!) but will keep working on it.

I love the fleese that you used for your Linus blanket...looks like spring!

I have one Linus quilt finished and am working on the binding on another today. I hope to have a photo of that one posted on my blog tomorrow.

Thanks Cheri for sharing the idea of working on a quilt for National Service Day! I have enjoyed working on a charity quilt today. (I posted it on my blog) Your fleece blanket is very cute. I will have to try that pattern.

I would have liked to have done more, but at least I managed to get out a UFO to make into a preemie quilt when I'm feeling better. It's posted on my blog.

Cheri, I put a picture of the quilt top I completed, on my blog. I had already started this but just hadn't gotten back to it but your idea gave me the push I needed. thanks,

I spent the whole day at work with PT afterwards (got home about 7:30 pm) ~ BUT I did go to the UPS store at lunchtime to ship Purple Patch Quilt No. 2 (So Many Memories) to the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative)... posted about it on my blog yesterday.

Wonderful effort you've put forth, encouraging so many!

I just posted a photo on my blog of the quilt I worked on yesterday. What a great idea!
