Update for Comfort Quilts

 

Thank you Quilters for your hard work and generous contributions in 2022!  

 

We have given more than 125 quilts to the following:  Central WA Hospital Palliative Care, Leavenworth Rehabilitation Care, Chief for a Day Program, CASA (Foster kids), The Bunker (Vets), Habitat for Humanity, Bruce Hotel/Women’s Resource Center, Ukrainian Refugee families, local fire victims.  In addition, 70 placemats have gone to recipients of Mobile Meals and 150 pillowcases to CASA and Women’s Resource for Christmas.  One very special donated quilt is being raffled within the guild to raise money for a scholarship to an art student at Wenatchee Valley College.

 

So what do we need moving forward?  

 

The most requested size is twin (minimum 60" x 80”). 

CASA loves getting kid-themed quilts for all ages.

We will need several “snuggle quilts” for Chief for a Day in the spring.  These will go to a variety of children from 5-15, both boys and girls. Approximately 40” x 60”  works well.  We try to fit specific interests or favorite colors of each child.

 

Use your left over fabrics to make pillow cases and place mats.  CASA uses pillow cases at Christmas for foster kids rather than stockings.  Mobile Meals recipients have truly enjoyed getting colorful placemats.  Sometimes, we have pillowcase and placemat kits for you to pick up at meetings.  

 

Just keep making your beautiful donations.  We will find a home for each contribution.  If you know of a specific need or organization in our valley that we can help, let us know.  Thank you!

 

Suggested Quilt Sizes

 

Twin : 60” x 80” minimum

Palliative:  40” x 60”

Wheelchair:  40” x 40”

 

How we can help:

 

We have batting, backing fabrics, and fabric kits for tops.  Call or email if you have a specific need.  We will cut backing to size for you.  Drop off or pick up from one of us, or at a guild meeting.  We accept finished tops, and make up kits for others to quilt.  Sometimes, we have quilts that simply need binding.
