These small quilts are  distributed to one of the many organizations that meet the needs of the homeless and hurting children in the Valley.  Some of  the agencies that have received these quilts are the Rescue Mission, Turning Point Shelter, Good Samaritan Hospice and Interfaith Hospitality.    When possible the committee tries to have kits available at our guild meetings for members to take home and sew.  These kits are a simple pattern of six (6) inch squares that are sewn into rows of seven blocks across and nine down.  These quilts can be quilted and finished in several ways.  If you prefer, you may use your own fabric and pattern, as well as pre-printed panels in these quilt tops.   So that these quilts can be loved for a long time, we ask:            

  •  minimum size be 36”x47”            
  •  should be quilted or tied no more than every 3-4” apart
  • kid friendly fabric and patterns are encouraged
  • if you chose to include a label, please don’t use your name (safety issue)
