We will meet at our St. Philip's in Round Rock (our usual location) from 9 - 11. Come for a beautiful outdoor show of blankets made by our volunteers, door prizes, a silent auction, Viewer's Choice winner announcement from our Blanket Challenge and more!

Volunteers, please consider bringing a snack & treats to share with our guests.

Larger Quilts Needed
We have recently experienced a large shortage of larger blankets. Our facilities have a great need for boy and gender neutral quilts and blankets for elementary - high school kids. Blankets and quilt tops in these sizes and colors would be greatly appreciated.

REMINDER: When making quilts for The Linus Connection, please AVOID the following fabrics:

Pieced Quilt Backs
For those of you turning in quilt tops wider than 40" for quilting, please include a pieced back that is at least 4" wider and 4" longer than the top. It helps save our volunteer quilters a lot of time if they do not have to find or piece backs wide enough for the larger tops. Complete blanket specifications are here.
