    Today we received a box of 10 quilts from Karen in Lincoln, NE.  Thank you so much!!  She also sent some quilt tops and fabric for backs.  Everything is much appreciated!    We are working hard to get enough quilts for requests for this month.  I am busy quilting.  Thankfully several of you have donated quilt tops, so there is plenty that need to be quilted.  It makes it so much faster and easier when we can grab a top off the shelf and start quilting.  Yesterday one of our binding angels stopped in to see if we had anything that needed bindings, so I sent 4 or 5 quilts with her.

    I am watching for the mail to see if more quilts come in from quilters  around the country.    Quilters are such amazing people, I know that we can pull together and get lots of quilts to the little ones who need them.

    Keep Quilting!!

    With all of the disasters this year, we have been sending out a lot of quilts.  We had just sent boxes and boxes of quilts to Florida hurricane victims when the fires in California started.  Now we have emptied our shelves and there are still more requests, so we need your help.  So many, many families have lost everything and having a quilt to hang on to means the world.  We have also been able to send 168 stuffed animals that were donated, and we have requests for more of those too.  We tuck the animals in with the quilts.  They are so appreciated, but we are out of them, so if you have a new (or  like new) stuffed animal that needs a little one to love, please send it to us and we’ll get it into those little hands.

    Normally this time of year, we distribute a lot of quilts as the weather get colder.  This year, our shelves are empty and the requests are still coming.  If you have an extra quilt and have been considering donating it, now is the time.

    Thank you for all of your help,

    Ellen

    Yes, Wrap Them in Love will be sending quilts to victims of Harvey and Irma.  The folks in these areas will be needing help for a long time, so this will definitely be ongoing.  We need quilts of all sizes – even your slightly used quilts as long as they are clean and in good shape.  If you want, you can enclose a note of encouragement that I will send along with the quilts.  Quilters, you know what to do!  Thank you so much,  Ellen

  • Boxes in the mail

    The mail lady has been busy again.  First a box full of fabric came from Elizabeth in VA.  The prints are so cute and will be used to make several quilts.  There are even large pieces that will be great for quilt backs.

    A soft and cuddly little quilt arrived from Hallie, a high school student in Montana.   She did a beautiful job!  This quilt will bring so much love and comfort to the little one who hugs it.

    Two handquilted quilts have arrived from Minneapolis, Kansas.  They are so nice, and a great size too.  They will be great for any age.  There is so much love in every stitch.   

    We really appreciate time, talent and your caring hearts.

  • Thank you!

    A huge Thank You goes out to all who have sent donations.  Your work is so much appreciated and we couldn’t get more quilts to those who need them without you!

    Two big boxes came from Phoenix Arizona today.  They are filled with hand quilted quilts in various stages as well as some sewing supplies.  The pictures do not do these justice, they are so amazing!  When they are finished, you’ll be able to see the pictures of the whole quilts.

    Thank you so much!  

    Another box came from Ro who was sewing blocks for Wrap Them in Love while on a trip!  Look at all of these beautiful quilt blocks.  We will be able to make several quilts from these.  Ro makes little dresses and shorts for children that she donates to a charity.  With all of the colorful scraps, she makes quilts and blocks for us.  Ro, we really appreciate you!

    Two packages came in the mail yesterday.  The first from LaMesa, California.  A group of quilters all made star blocks, then traded so that each member ended up with 12 different blocks.  One quilter donated her blocks along with fabric for a back and binding.  Aren’t they wonderful?

    The second box came from New City, New York.  There are 3 small finished quilts as well as 4 beautiful quilt tops and a set of blocks to make more quilts.  There is also plenty of fabric for backs, bindings and even more quilts!  —So beautiful!

  • Thank you!

  • Quilt Labels

    Thank you so much to Starke Digital Graphics in Arlington, Washington for printing our quilt labels.  We put a label of the back of each quilt that is donated.  We encourage you to put your own label on if you’d like to with your name and where you are from.  If you have a label on your quilt when you donate it, ours will just go right beside it.  Over the years we have gotten emails from around the world when someone has seen our label on a quilt.  It is always special to us to hear about the quilts, sometimes years later!

    Do you have a favorite block or quilt pattern that you use for charity quilts?
