The requirements are very simple for our baby quilts, making the process an easy one to participate in!
Baby Quilt Requirements:
Size: 24” x 24” (give or take an inch)
Top Fabric: 100% cotton in colours or prints suitable for babies (have some fun here!);
Back Fabric: 100% cotton flannelette;
NOTE: no polyester on the exterior as it can cause a static reaction;
Batting: any batting is acceptable;
Quilting: by hand or machine, but do not quilt too densely to keep the project light and flexible. Do NOT use invisible thread, it can loop and catch tiny fingers or toes;
Binding: Can be standard binding or envelope/pillowcase style;
Label: Attach a label displaying OVQG, or write OVQG directly on the backing fabric with a permanent fabric pen.
The October delivery was a success with 29 lovely quilts donated. Thank you to everyone who contributed by making these quilts! While dropping off the quilts we saw two tiny babies wrapped up in last months quilts in their incubators. The tiny feet wiggling under the quilts was very special to see.
