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 Quilt will meet on Thursday, April 19 at 10:00 at Liz Kraayenbrink's barn. Bring
your project, your machine and your lunch. We will continue to work on the wheelchair quilts for
the Castle Point Veterans.
Recipient organizations include:
