2021 Goal -- Blankets for 25,000 Children in Foster Care
Blankets connect us
from coast to coast
We are thankful for you, our Blanket Angel Coordinators. Each heart on the map represents one or more of you, in 25+ states, providing love, hope and handmade blankets for children in foster care all across the U.S.
Join the BAC Team

In this new year, we continue to be blessed by the support of a growing number of Blanket Angel Coordinators (BACs) – supporters who live outside of Central Ohio and create blankets for children in foster care in their hometown. Whether you make a few blankets or your group makes many, each one of you is “sew” appreciated.

You are invited to join—or renew your membership on—our BAC team with an annual membership of just $25. With this commitment you will help support our mission and be an official member of our BAC team, providing love, comfort and hope to children in foster care all over the U.S!  Benefits/How to Join

If you are unable to be a Blanket Angel Coordinator right now, please let us know. We will remove you from the BAC mailing list but keep you on our regular list if you wish.

Texas dental assistant students make blankets after classes
Camille, an instructor at Concorde Career College in San Antonio, Texas, learned about MVOB through Texas Foster Care and Adoption. She and her husband fostered their grandson and recently adopted him. While he was in foster care he received a MVOB blanket.
Camille was moved to give back to other children in care. She, a colleague and their dental assistant students spent an evening after class making 10 blankets to donate to Texas Foster Care, and plans are in the works for more. We're grateful for these caring Blanket Angels.
Rhode Island BAC exhibits his quilts
John, our BAC and faithful quilter in Rhode Island, has mounted an exhibition of his quilts at the Greenville Public Library.

Congratulations, John! We are very grateful for you and for the 60+ quilts you have donated to foster children in Rhode Island! 
Machine quilt without a long arm
You don’t need a long arm machine to create attractive machine quilting. These quilts were stitched on a traditional quilter's sewing machine. Use a straight stitch to create curved or straight-line designs. Or try using a zig zag stitch, making it wider or longer than usual. No need to buy an expensive long arm machine or pay someone to quilt for you. Experiment a little and see what you can create!
Crochet a unique baby blanket
We love imagining a young child in foster care snuggling into this beautiful crocheted blanket. The Blanket Angel who created it crocheted the lacy white pattern separated by curving rows of stitches and added the fun touch of fuzzy green novelty yarn to every other row. We thought you would enjoy seeing it and perhaps using the idea in a creation of your own.
