Quilting for Others

Springfield QU members make quilts for a number of organizations as part of our Community Service outreach program.  For members’ reference the organizations and suggested quilt sizes are below:

  • Wounded Warrior quilts (delivered to Fort Belvoir):  height 60″ to 80″, width 50″ to 60″.
  • Baby quilts (delivered to Operation Homefront for baby showers): from 30″ to 50″ on a side.
  • Quilts for Fisher House on Fort Belvoir: 50″ by 60″ minimum.  These quilts are given to family members of those in the Fort Belvoir Hospital.


FAREWELL BLOCKS
Farewell blocks are for members who are moving away from our area.  Please make nine-patch blocks that complete to 8 inches using 3 inch cut squares, either 5 blue squares and 4 unbleached muslin squares, or 4 blue squares and 5 muslin squares.  Please sign your name on one square and heat set using a hot iron.
