Truly Timeless Treasures
Fortunately for us, not only do we have volunteers that are brilliantly generous with their time, we have had some very special fabric and yarn donations over the years, including the fabric used to make each of the blankets shared in this post.
Each of these gorgeous quilts was made using sales samples donated to The Linus Connection by very generous salespersons. These particular quilts all feature fabrics by Timeless Treasures.
Sales samples are small pieces of fabrics that represent a fabric line. These are used to show to quilt store owners so they can, in turn, order fabric for their customers. As lines of fabric go in and out, so do the samples. Those small pieces of fabric, when worked on by the hands of our talented volunteers, can turn into glorious quilts for children in need.
A huge thank you goes out to all the fabric companies and salespersons that donate fabric to blanket making charities like The Linus Connection. New, high-quality quilting fabrics make gorgeous treasures to share with children that really need something special in their lives.
