A Different Kind of Giving

I fell in love with this idea from Debbie at Stitchin' Therapy  - please visit for all the details and inspiration.  A group of volunteers making children's toys for various groups - listed on her site.  And when Deb broke her shoulder and then surgery - she sent a shout out for help in getting enough doll quilts for the cradles and doll beds.

We all have scraps, orphan blocks or starts of projects sitting.  I dug first into my pre-cut scrap barrels.  A 12"x 18" cradle quilt goes together so quickly.

I know we all have those left over triangles - perfect home for them in a little  14" x 18" doll bed quilt. 

And she had the cutest button designed for you all to add to your blog and get the word out.  I plan on digging into those orphan blocks for more little quilts to send on.  Do you have some orphan blocks, HST's, odd charms, or bits of a quilt never finished??  Consider makeing one (or several) of  these little blankets of love to make some child's Christmas a little brighter.

Sewingly Yours,


  1. Thanks for posting about this, Sharon!! I love the idea!!

  2. This sounds so doable on so many levels. Small, quick, scraps have new meaning, stash busting need I go on. Thanks for the link and button.

  3. Hi Beth, Sarah and Sharon...if I get a few of these done, I need to know who to mail them to? Please email me the address...Thanks!
