    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

    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 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!

  • We are still here!

    It has been quite a few years since we have had this blog online.  Wrap Them in Love is still here, and quilters around the world are still quilting so that we can provide quilts to little ones in need of a hug and a snuggle.

    I thought about taking down the original posts, but when reading through them, it was like visiting old friends, so I will leave them here.  We have lost some of our supporters who used to post.

    Nana passed away at the age of 80 (almost 81) in March of 2010.  In 2009, she finished 113 quilts for Wrap Them in Love.

    We lost Bev from Alaska.  Thank you to Carol E for telling me the month and year.  It was in July 2010.  She was an amazing quilter and such an inspiration for so many.  We always looked for the heart that she quilted in a corner of her quilts.

    In August 2016 we lost Jutta from Canada.  She was so happy to get to spend some time with her first grandchild.

    We miss them all, their beautiful quilting, and their amazing encouragement they gave to the rest of us.

    I hope that we hear from you.  Let us know what you are working on.

    Ellen

    The mail lady has been busy the last week bringing us lots of goodies!  Boxes of quilts have arrived from Birdie in Md and from Bev in AK.  We also received a box full of quilt tops from Lynda in VA, and Ellen in TX and her 92 year old mother in Fla teamed up to send us a beautiful quilt.  We appreciate all of the hard work from everyone.  The quilts are all fantastic!   Thank you so much!

    I have noticed that several new people have joined lately.  Please don’t be shy—-introduce yourselves to us and let us know what you are working on. —-Ellen

    A box arrived in the mail from Shari in Montana.  Shari sent two large snuggly quilts and also some nice fabric that we will be able to use for backs on more quilts!  Thank you so much, Shari!

    We just delivered a load of donations to Rose Bud Reservation in South Dakota.  Besides quilts, there were lots of boxes of clothing, a bed, a large donation of baby formula, some cleaning supplies and lots of other things.  Thank you to everyone for helping us to help the people on the reservation.

    I hope that all of you mothers had a great Mother’s Day yesterday.  It was a beautiful sunny day here.  We had the sheep shearer come and shear the two sheep.  I’m sure that Mama Sheep thought that was a great Mother’s Day gift!  I think that they were happy to take off their thick wool coats in the sun.  In the afternoon I did some quilting and enjoyed the sunshine a bit. ——Ellen

    Geri from the Arlington group just stopped by with 13 quilts that the group turned in when they met last weekend.  She said they are all working hard to have lots more for us next month when they get together.  Besides making new quilts, these ladies have also been working hard to help finish some of the donated quilt tops that we have.  Way to go, ladies!!

    Yesterday the mail lady came driving up to the door honking and honking!  I ran out to see what she had for me.  She had her little red jeep full of big boxes!  She asked me if it is Christmas or something!  There were three big boxes of quilts that arrived.  The first was from Bev in Alaska.  She quilted eight quilts that were pieced b y JoAnn.  Next was a box of 5 quilts from Donna in Indiana.  Those quilts were from Donna and Cindy C. The third box was 4 quilts from Jayne in Michigan!  They are all such wonderful snuggly quilts!  Thank you to all of you!

    Now I have a mountain of quilts to take pictures of and update the gallery on our website.  My “quilt holder” isn’t available for a few days, so as soon as I get some help to do that, I’ll get the pictures taken, edited and uploaded.  Don’t forget about the galleries from previous years too.  There are so many quilt ideas for you there.  And, you can’t help but smile and feel good when you see all of the quilts that have been lovingly donated by all of you.

    Happy Quilting, Everyone!  ——-Ellen
