Update on Quilt Dimensions

Please note that we are updating our Quilt Dimensions page. We are now asking that quilt tops donated to us be 42 x 60 inches. This size is best to fit the children’s beds and it eliminates the sorting and necessity of taking extra quilts to ensure we have enough of the various sizes. We’ve found over time that this is the best size for most of the children — big enough for the bigger kids and big enough for the little ones to have room to grow.

Quilt tops that we’ve received that are smaller than this will be modified to fit these dimensions. Completed quilts that we’ve received in smaller sizes may be donated to disaster relief efforts where the smaller sized are needed, (as we did after the earthquake in Haiti and the tsunami in Japan), or we may still take them to Ethiopia. But we are asking now that all future donated tops and quilts fit the 42 x 60 criteria.

Thanks very much for your attention to this change. And happy quilting!
