Comfort quilts are an integral part of the guild, with kits available and help for those needing that special piece or batting to finish a donated quilt. We hold an annual “Comfort Quilts” day at our February meeting, with members participating in cutting, piecing, sandwiching or quilting.
The following are sizes for donated quilts:
Crib: 47” x 47”
Twin: 58” x 65”
Hospice: 58” x 90”
Wheelchair: 36” x 48”
Lap: 40” x 55”
A variation of maximum 4” in either direction is perfectly acceptable.
These quilts are donated to community members in need of some comfort.
We had Ruth from Shelter to Home as our speaker in September 2021. We provide quilts for their clients who are transitioning into homes and she inspired us to keep on making quilts.
