The Collin, Cooke, Grayson and Rockwall Counties Texas Chapter of Project Linus is a group of volunteers that provides comfort to children ages newborn to 17, in need of security and love by providing them with new handmade blankets. 


We are in need of new, washable quilted, sewn, crocheted, knitted and hand-tied blankets free of fragrance and pet hair or dander. We distribute all sizes of blankets including small (36” x 36” 36” x 45”) medium (45” x 60”) and large (54”x 63”).


We distribute about 500 blankets per month. As of January 1, 2024 our chapter has donated over 100,654 blankets since the chapter began in November 2004.


We also accept pieced tops ready for quilting.

Operation Quilted Comfort

Sign up to help make quilts, pillow cases and laundry bags for Vets at the VA Hospital in Bonham and VA Plano Outpatient Clinic. The sign up sheets are out at each meeting. Here is what you can do to help:

  • From Your Stash - donate red, white, blue and patriotic fabrics.

  • From Your Batting - Cuttings from batting that can be put together to make batting for these wheelchair quilts. The long strips from the quilts you get back from the long arm quilters. Whole batts you have decided not to use.

  • From Your Time at Workshops –Please sign up with contact information to be notified of time and place to see if you can come. Just bring your sewing machines, neutral thread, and lots of pre-wound bobbins. Kits will be set up ready to sew.

  • From Your Time at Home – Some have asked if they can make their donations at home instead of coming to the workshop and YES you may. Watch the newsletter for time and place. We will need sewers, pressers, quilters, and binders.
