Sharing stories from both recipients and donors and showcasing fabulous projects, this title is designed largely for children and teens, these quilts feature fun extras, like pockets for storing stuffed animals. This celebration of "Project Linus" presents over 20 quilting projects perfect for giving - and for inspiring quilters to do good in the world. When a child is seriously ill, traumatised, or otherwise in need, "Project Linus" comes to the rescue with a new, lovingly handmade blanket or afghan. With this precious gift, a volunteer quilter can bring a little warmth, security, comfort and joy into that child's life. "Quilt It with Love" tells the story of this wonderful organisation, sharing stories from both recipients and donors and showcasing fabulous projects - often made with easy-to-use fabric precuts - that even beginners can make. Designed largely for children and teens, these quilts feature fun extras, like pockets for storing stuffed animals or a pattern that doubles as a game board.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Especially heartwarming are the letters included from recipients of these wonderful quilts and their families, as well as notes from those whose lives have been enriched by using their talents to brighten the spirits of children in crisis." --"Machine Quilting Unlimited" "The quilts they [Balagna and Babbitt] gathered together for the book include ones with interactive designs that double as game boards or have pockets for storing toys. Some are crazy quilted, paper pieced, or appliqued; others stitch up quickly with strip piecing or precuts. The authors have also included quilts that make perfect guild or group activities." --"Quilter Magazine" "Each quilt project has its own chapter. There is a gorgeous full color photograph of the quilting project featured along with a detailed list of supplies and directions for assembly. Also included are diagrams and photographs to explain the quilting process. Each project also has a guide to show how difficult the quilt is to make. I found this very helpful since I am still a beginner. I love reading the stories of the people who made the quilt and who it was gifted to. The quilts are really so much more than simple quilts. There are some that are game boards or have windows or pockets that open up. There are quilts with signature blocks sewn onto them that make them a wonderful keepsake." --BlogCritics.org
