Welcome to the homepage for Love Quilts! We are a cross stitch group that creates cross stitched quilts for children with life threatening or life long illnesses. Love Quilts began in February 1999 and in the fall of 2003 we passed our 100th quilt made! We passed our 200th quilt made in the summer of 2005!
Please feel free to browse around and view the webpages that have been created for these special children. See the navigation links at the top of the page for more information you will need to help Love Quilts.
These quilts are being made by a lot of wonderful people from the US and even other countries! These squares are counted cross-stitch only, not stamped or machine stitched. Each child’s quilt is offered on a sign up basis and you may randomly pick the children you wish to stitch for. We also accept “any child” squares which are saved and used when an odd number of squares come in for a quilt or, when we have enough, to create a full quilt for a child who might not be able to wait the several months it takes to get a quilt made via sign ups.
Each quilt has a theme in which guide the stitchers in picking their patterns and size specifications. The pattern choice is the stitchers.
