Many of you have asked if there are required measurements for the quilts so here they are:

  • The Children's Home boy's cottage, prefers quilts approximately 60"x60".
  • Astor Home prefers quilts approximately 50” X 80”.
  • The veterans like a lap quilt approximately 60” square.
  • The quilts donated to young children measure 36”, 40”, 42” up to 48” square.  Baby/toddler quilts are meant to be “cuddle” quilts and should be no larger than a crib size quilt.

Community Quilts will meet on Thursday, March 15, 10:00 AM at First Presbyterian Church in Pleasant Valley. Please note that this is the week before the guild meeting. We will continue to work on wheelchair quilts for the veterans. Please note that if both the Hyde Park and Millbrook public schools are on a delayed opening or are closed we will not meet.
