PROJECT QUILT ONLY

PROJECT BLOCK PARTY

HAVE FRIENDS THAT WANT TO HELP?

Gather your friends and family to make quilt blocks over a weekend.  Pattern and instructions will be mailed to you. Minimum sewing skills needed. Send in a prepaid addressed envelope to CareQuilts. 

You would need to mail us the completed blocks so that our volunteers can attach batting and backing and machine quilt your project. We will send in a note with your quilt to the individual receiving your carequilt.

We can also arrange to be at your location on a weekend for the Project Block Party. Travel is limited to 25-30 miles within our locality on Sat-Sun only. Book your time slot and dates by calling us.

PROJECT REMEMBER

HAVE A PERSON IN MIND?

Would you like to honor someone who has been through cancer? Project Remember allows you to honor this person by sponsoring the cost of making and distributing a quilt.

For a small quilt, our cost is $25 and for an adult quilt it is $50. An "In honor of " note will be sent to the person whom you are honoring as well.

For monetary donations, please visit our Donations page.

PROJECT COLOR

HAVE A DESIGN IN MIND?

You have a special choice of colors to be added to a quilt (for example, pink tones for breast cancer) , you can make a request for us to use those colors in a quilt. Our lap quilts are approximately 40" by 30" inches. Our adult quilt sizes are a standard of 40" by 60" inches. 

You can choose to donate fabric of your choice and color to us or for a small donation of $25 (child size) or $50 (for adult size), we will purchase fabric of your choice color and make the quilt. A photo of the completed quilt will be sent to you.

HAVE A BUSY SCHEDULE?

Volunteer to finish quilting a "sandwich" quilt. Sandwiching is when the quilt top, the batting and backing are all laid out and it needs to be basted. "Basting" is when large running stitches are made on the sandwich to secure it in place, as the actual quilting/tying is done. We have many such quilts that need to be quilted only. Hand quilting thread or crochet thread and needle will be provided. This can be done in the convenience of your home as you sit and relax listening to music or watching TV. Do it at your own pace, and return to us to do the binding (edging) and labeling.
