Baby quilts for NICUs, a LouLou gift card giveaway, and a pattern giveaway!

Hello quilting friends! I’m reaching out today to share a wonderful quilting program organized by LouLou’s Fabric Shop, Little Lou Quilts.  This program seeks to provide new, hand-made baby quilts to infants in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs).
LouLou’s Fabric Shop is kicking of their wonderful program with a goal of collecting 100 baby quilts by March 21, 2020. They will collect, wash, package and deliver your quilts to a pre-selected NICU. (The first location will be a NICU in Oregon, in honor of shop owner Jamie’s little nephews.) All you need to do is put your sewing machine pedal to the metal! You can find all of the details and participation guidelines here: Little Lou Quilts.
As an incentive, LouLou’s Fabric Shop is also giving away three $50 LouLou’s Gift Cards. All quilters who send in a quilt before the March 21 deadline will be entered into the gift card drawing. Details here: Little Lou Quilts Giveaway.
Maybe you are like me, and you doubt you can complete a quilt before March 21. Don’t worry. You can donate a quilt at a later date. Be sure to follow LouLou’s Fabric Shop on social media and sign up for email updates. They are planning to open up nominations for other NICU locations to receive Little Lou Quilts in the future!
I’d like to join in the fun by running a pattern giveaway (one PDF pattern of your choice) to ten of my blog readers. Follow this link to see all of my pattern offerings. Then leave a comment below (on this post). Tell me which pattern you would like to win, along with your email address, and you\’ll be entered!
Comments are open through 5:00 pm (CST) on Thursday, February 27, 2020.  *Only one comment per person/per email address.  Email me if you are having trouble leaving a comment and I will leave a comment on your behalf. (carriedawayquilting@gmail.com)
Shown below are a few of my patterns that are a great size for a baby quilt. But feel free to enter to win any one of my patterns that you like. The giveaway is just for fun!
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I have a bunch of charm packs to use up so maybe Carried Away would be perfect. I donate at least 20 quilts a year to the Women's Shelter in my town this would go fast. I love your Christmas pines too. Jmikebalou (at) aol (dot) com

  2. What an awesome idea Lou Lou Fabrics has come up with! Little Lou Quilts will surely be a success as they supply beautiful quilts to babies in NICU. Id' love to make one to donate, but will have to put it on my list…I am chasing my tail right now!My favorite pattern from your designs is Harmony!duchick at gmail dot com

  3. I have made a few Picking Pedals quilts with your pattern. I added a few bordersand they make adorable NICU quilts when I leave out the batting and just sew and turn with Minky. I made one for my mom some years ago too. That is my fav pattern…. but Flower Tile. I need that one🥰

  4. What a fantastic event to be part of. Thank you for sharing this. All of your patterns are beautiful. Only one? I choose Star Watch. I will get busy on a baby quilt for this event. Thank you for the opportunity.

  5. Our youngest daughter spent several weeks in the NICU, and we were given a couple of small quilts. It was such a nice gesture, and we used them until we couldn't anymore. What a sweet thing for you to do with LouLou's. Thanks! I love your Fall Flight pattern. squish06@ rocketmail.com

  6. Thank you for telling us about Little Lou's Quilts. That's a great idea, and I have been thinking a lot about baby quilts lately, so I'm going to do my best to finish one, in spite of recent trials in my family. =) I think I'd like to win Star Crossed Pines, if my number comes up. Thanks so much for making the offer. You have some great patterns on your site. It was hard to pick just one.

  7. I love making baby quilts to donate. I made 23 last year. I just wish the post office would stop raising their rates! I like your pattern Twirlity.

  8. Thanks for telling about Little Lou's Quilts and their project. I'm sure that I have orphan blocks that will let me put one together quickly. If I were to win a pattern, I think I'd like Gumdrops. Thanks for the opportunity to win one!

  9. I love all of your patterns, and have several. I have my eye on Picking Petals and Mini Story Stars. I am all about the stars right now!!! By BFF works in a NICU so this is a cause/program I would love to contribute to.

  10. My great grandson was in the NICU after he was born 6 weeks early so this is near and dear to my heart. I may not be able to get a quilt done by the March date, but will do one for a later donation for sure. It’s hard to choose a favorite pattern, but the one that kept catching my eye was Fall Flight. Thanks for the info and the give away!!

  11. I had a child in the NICU once, 19 years ago. And making a quilt for a good cause is appealing: ) Thank you for this pattern giveaway! My favorite is Fat Quarter Flourish.

  12. Did you realize there is a 12 word phrase you can tell your partner… that will induce intense emotions of love and instinctual attractiveness for you buried within his chest?Because deep inside these 12 words is a \”secret signal\” that triggers a man's impulse to love, look after and look after you with all his heart…=====> 12 Words That Fuel A Man's Desire ResponseThis impulse is so built-in to a man's brain that it will make him work better than ever before to make your relationship as strong as it can be.Matter-of-fact, fueling this influential impulse is absolutely mandatory to getting the best possible relationship with your man that once you send your man one of the \”Secret Signals\”……You'll soon find him expose his soul and mind for you in such a way he never experienced before and he'll see you as the one and only woman in the universe who has ever truly appealed to him.

  13. As claimed by Stanford Medical, It's indeed the SINGLE reason women in this country get to live 10 years longer and weigh 19 KG lighter than we do.
