There are men and women so about any fabric will work, except kids novelties, and seasonal. Most of my quilts are scrappy, and I can always use scraps, and pieces and parts that you have made, such as; for patches, nine patches, 1/2 square triangles and ect. Neutrals are always needed..

Need:  Anything quilt related; fabric of any size, batting of any size, tools, thread. I will also work with unfinished projects or orphan blocks. I love the challenge of trying to finish these projects.
I work with several groups which do charity quilts and other fabric items. I am chair of my church’s quilt group. We have made quilts for several charities and missions. We had a member of our church serve as a nurse missionary in Kenya and we made quilts for her for over 7 years. One year we sent about 50. We made approx. 25 quilts that went to a missionary that serves burn victims, many of them children. We also make a quilt for the babies born to members of our church family. We have made quilts for Head Start and for the local hospital to be given to patients in distress. Last year we made quilts that were given out at a major mission project we have had for a number of years. “Winterize Your Neighbor” gives to anyone who comes items they need to keep warm during the winter months. This includes all items of clothing including shoes and boots, bedding, and we even gave a Christmas tree to a family. All items are donated by our church members and other churches and people of the community. This year we will be giving quilts that we have made to this project. Bedding seems to be a very needed item. I also help with quilts at another local church. They also make quilts that are given to Methodist mission projects, families in distress, the local hospital for patients in distress, and other places in need. Fayette County has a group of quilters who are making quilts for the World War II veterans of the county. Red, white, and blue fabric will also go to this group. I have been given fabric in the past and have contributed to these groups. This I continue to do and if I do receive any gifts it will be shared with these groups.

  1. Hi Jo
    Just wondering if your list is a lot shorter than in the past? I don’t see The Cresco Ladies, Ray’s, or Sue Darling’s contact information.
