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. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
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!
