Bonnie has so many awesome embroidery designs that are perfect to use in donation quilts for kids and adults alike. As makers, we often donate our creations to local churches and charitable organizations. These national organizations also accept quilts. Check the links below for more information and submission requirements.

Quilting for Kids

Project Linus has distributed nearly 8 million blankets over the last 25 years to seriously ill and traumatized youth ages 0-18. I first became aware of this organization when my granddaughter arrived seven weeks early and spent time in the NICU. Blankets can be quilted, knitted, or crocheted. Get more information on local chapters and being a “blanketeer” here.

Quilts for Kids was started by a quilter who was appalled by the amount of discontinued quilt fabric that was being placed into landfills. Quilts are distributed to children facing serious illness, trauma, abuse and natural disasters. See their requirements or request a kit here.

The VL Batman Project provides quilts for abused youth through the Idaho Network of Children’s Advocacy Centers and St. Luke’s C.A.R.E.S. They service all but focus on ages 12-18, especially boys, an underserved age group. See how you can help here.

Quilting for Cancer

Victoria’s Quilts is dedicated to keep cancer patients warm as they go through their chemo treatments. See their requirements here.

Check with your local cancer centers. They often donate warm blankets to patients and use raffles to generate funds for comfort items and gift cards to offset travel.

Quilting for Veterans

Quilts of Valor covers service members and veterans with quilts that comfort and heal. Although fabrics do not need to be red, white, and blue, that is the color combination most chosen by veterans. See their requirements here.

Another veteran service organization providing quilts is Quilts of Honor. They show active military and veterans how much they appreciate their sacrifice and service with “Quilted Hugs of Gratitude.” See their requirements here.

You don’t have to make a quilt to participate. You can also donate fabrics, batting, and funding to these generous non-profit organizations.

Which charity groups do you support with quilting and embroidery?
