100 Quilts For Kids and a Giveaway!
So, as I was making up this chevron quilt, I thought the best home for it was with a child who might receive some comfort from having his or her own blanket. I will be donating this to the Portland chapter of Project Linus. This group is pretty remarkable -- the group holds sew-ins and accepts donations of new materials or handmade child-sized blankets and then distributes them to children in need at area hospitals, women shelters, and other charitable/social organizations.
As I'm so in love with this HST chevron design, I wrote up a quick tutorial. You can go to my store blog at LiMa Sews for the rest of the details on this blanket, tutorial, and a chance to win the Lizzy House fabric to make your own version!
I'm linking up to Lily's Quilts and the Manic Monday Linky Party at Sew Happy Geek, so go check them out!
