The Project Linus Chapter of Wake County, NC was started in 1996 by Susie Holmes. Over 42,000 blankets have been delivered to many local groups and agencies that help seriously ill or traumatized children who need a HUG from a blanket including: Wake Med Hospitals, Rex Hospital, Duke Hospital NICU, Safe Space (for children of abused women receiving support), Hospice (for their Reflections program for grieving children and teens), Make a Wish Foundation, the children at Salvation Army, Children's Flight of Hope, and Wake County Social Services.

Sofie's Birthday Quilt

Sofie H. planned her 13th birthday party around a Project Linus quilt. First the girls had a tea at the Tea Room in downtown Wake Forest, and then they returned to her house and each designed squares for the quilt. Later, Sofie and her mother machine pieced the squares with a coordinating sashing and finished with yarn-ties. Sofie, Kate, Grace, Trisha, and Alex donated their quilt to Project Linus and hope it gives warm comfort to someone who enjoys tea parties.
This is the second quilt that Sofie and her friends have donated to Project Linus.  Her first quilt was made when she was 11.
