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 Quilts will meet on the following Thursdays this summer:
June 21, July 19 and August 16 at Liz's barn.
We continue to work on the Veteran's Wheelchair Quilts. We believe that enough kits have been cut and distributed. If you currently have a kit, or a wheelchair quilt in progress, please stop at the Raffle table at the June meeting to let me know what state it is in. If you took a kit and will not have time to work on it this summer, please return it at the June meeting so that others may complete it. We would like to wrap this project up by the fall.
As always, thank you for your generous support of Community Quilts and the organizations we work with. Your quilts are a hug to those in need.
Recipient organizations include:
Astor Home for Children
Poughkeepsie Children's Home
Center for Prevention of Child Abuse
Hyde Park Homeless Shelter
Veterans' Administration at Castle Point Hospital
