Project Linus

Hooray! The Peanuts gang is back in Project Linus! This fabric collection stars Linus, Snoopy, Woodstock and Linus' beloved blanket.

There are several good reasons to enjoy this new fabric from Charles Schulz's classic characters. A lot of you may be aware of the organization Project Linus, which aims to "provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer 'blanketeers.' Hence the name, Project Linus.

Quilting Treasures has created our favorite Peanuts fabric to date in support of this mission. Part of the proceeds from this fabric collection from Quilting Treasures will go toward the organization, so you can feel good about purchasing and sewing with this fabric.

Beyond the charitable aspect of Project Linus, we are dazzled by the fabric itself. The print we love most is the Linus Patches which features the little fellow in over-sized stars and boxes. In all of our Project Linus quilts (one we can't show you just yet - more on that to come!) this print looks excellent as a focal block or in the border. Snoopy and Woodstock make excellent complements, and the group is rounded out with fun, bright coordinates. The confetti toss prints would go well in any bright quilt!

We have the full line in stock as well as the kit for Quilting Treasures' Nighty Night quilt.

Are you planning on making anything for yourself or for a Project Linus donation? If you do, please show us!

When we were at our local quilt show, they had a lady from project linus, so I got the brochures, so I can make some kid's quilts. I also plan on doing some quilts for the kid's in africa, so that will give me practice for simple quilts while I practice my free motion quilting for stuffed quilts.

I LOVE this fabric! Our two year old son is a receiver of more Project Linus blankets than I can count! And this just made me tear up! The Peanuts gang have been a favorite of mine since childhood, and now seeing them in these prints for Project Linus touches my heart in so many ways. As a mom, to all who make these Project Linus blankets, you are so appreciated. And the love and prayers that you put into them is felt everytime I wrap my precious little boy in them. Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
