Project Linus Big Bird and Friends

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Just having the ability and time to make quilts for Project Linus as well as adding lap quilts for our veterans. I get to indulge my love of sewing and have the joy of giving to good causes. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Panels are easy and a perfect project for beginners as it allows you to focus on the quilting rather than the piecing.

What you will need

  • 100% cotton panel and backing fabric
  • 80/20 quilt batting and 40 wt embroidery thread for the quilting.

Hi Nancy, Can you tell me where you got the pattern for this project? I haven't quilted since my children were little and would love to make something like this for my grandson. It is a adorable. ..... You did a terrific job. Michelle Penrose-Sinclair, Richmond Hill, Ontario
NB Originals answered:
Hi Michelle! It's a panel! I bought it last June as part of the 'scraps' bag deals at Keepsake Quilting up in New Hampshire. The deal was to pack pattern size ziploc bags with as many fabrics as you could fit from the 'scrap' boxes they kept bringing out over two days of the sale. I packed 14 bags, and these panels were among the 'scraps'!
