Welcome to the info page about the charity that I'm involved in called "Blankets of Love".

If you would like to know the history behind why I'm involved in this charity, you can read about what inspired me to start sewing Blankets of love here...
What is Blankets of Love?
Blankets of Love is a charity that runs to benefit our local Perth children's hospital. They are basically little mini baby-sized quilts that are given out the the sick or premature babies to help give the families a little bit of homely comfort during their hospital stay. The families then get to take the Blankets of Love home with them at the end of the stay.
How can you be involved?

Really it depends on what you are willing to give and taking into consideration postage.
I am more than happy to accept donations of any combination of the above.
How big do they need to be?
The recommended size is about 20x20 inches, but really they can be any size/shape similar to that. In other words they needn't be very big!
Are there any suggested designs/colours?
Well since these are donated items then the hospital will appreciate anything donated with love. However they have said that the Blue quilts for boys & Pink quilts for girls are popular. Really it's up to you.
When is the next intake?
We have just donated over 20 blankets of love in December 2012 and currently I am taking a break from accepting new donations. However, if you feel you would like to contribute, please feel free to contact King Edward Hospital, Perth directly.
Feel free to contact me if you have any more questions!
And if you feel inspired to jump on board, even if it's to contact your local hospital and donate to them then we'd love you to join up and keep in touch with how you are doing.
Feel free to grab the button for your blog too.
