Each Tuesday, I review a quilt product or try something new. I often host giveaways too….Make sure to stop over each Tuesday to check it out.
The good people over at Lark Crafts sent me a copy of “Quilt It with Love: The Project Linus Story” by Mary Balagna and Carol Babbit to review. The book is filled with over 20 quilt patterns but also features some great stories that will warm your heart (or bring a tear to your eye!)
Prior to reading this quilt book, I was aware of Project Linus but I was not aware of how the organization came to be. That was very interesting to read. The project in the book are great if you are looking for a quilt pattern to make for kiddos in your life or for children in need.
The stories and thank you notes in the book are great reads too. So many time quilters send quilts as donations to others, never knowing where they are going or if the recipient will even love them. Often we don’t hear those thank yous as the recipients have no idea who to send them too. Reading the thank yous and appreciation letters in the book were truly touching. Another thing I loved is that a portion of the proceeds from the book will go to Project Linus.

Whenever I hear the name Linus my mind quickly flies back to Snoopy and the whole Peanuts gang that Charles Schultz created. If you want a chance to win the book, just leave a comment here telling which Peanuts character you liked best. For me, I think it might just be Snoopy himself…creative and always doing his own thing…but then I’m bossy so can relate to Lucy…then I don’t care how I look so maybe Peppermint Patty….I am the little sister so maybe Sally…I am too hard on myself so maybe Charlie Brown. Anyway, just leave a comment with your favorite character.
Thanks for stopping by. If you love giveaways, make sure to stop back on Saturday for the Quilter’s Blog Hop Party.
Last week’s winner of “Stitches from the Schoolhouse” by Renee Plains donated by Pickle Dish is…Marjorie Nath who said, “I graduated from West Seattle High School in Seattle, WA in 1969. There were 500+ that I graduated with.” Congrats Marjorie!!
