While Community Quilts is on a winter hiatus, there are both quilt top kits and pieced quilts to be quilted available. No time constraints! Please check the Community Quilts table at the back of the room.
Thank you all for your continued support of Community Quilts.
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.
