Hi. Got scraps? Stash need pruning? I found a cool opportunity to make use of extra fabric and get a quilt done in a day ... on Make A Blanket Day ...

Heard of Project Linus? Then you probably know what this is all about.

I've never worked with Project Linus, so I'm speaking theoretically rather than from experience, but they seem like a good group. I found 'em on the web. They gather new handmade quilts, afghans and fleece blankets and distribute them to children and teens in need - hospitals, shelters and the like.

Feb. 18 is the sixth annual "Make A Blanket Day." Here. Read. http://www.projectlinus.org/mabd.shtml If someone here is affiliated with Linus, they may have more to say. But the deal appears to be this: you make a new blanket, find your local Project Linus chapter, bring them your blanket, and they take care of the distribution and logistics.

My goal is to teach some friends how to quilt on Feb. 18, using the snuggle up pattern as a guide, and bring a few blankets to the local chapter.

So, there you have it. Of course you can make a charity blanket/quilt any time of the year. But just thought I'd point out Feb. 18 as a special day.
