Granbury Quilters Guild

 

Active Charity Projects:

Children’s quilts don’t have to be fancy.  Please make them in BRIGHT, CHILD APPROPRIATE FABRICS.  They will be dragged around, machine washed and loved to pieces.

 

CASA

All sizes of small quilts from baby to toddler quilts needed for area foster children.  Our goal is to provide one for every foster child in care in Hood and Somerville Counties.

These are suggested finished lengths of the quilts for our CASA children.  They are sized so they are about 10 inches longer than the average height of a child at that age.

Newborn thru 1        Up to 44″ or 42″ square

Age 2 thru 4              45″ to 47″ length (44-45″ wide)

Age 4 thru 6              47″ to 52″ length (45-46″ wide)

Age 7 thru 8              53″ to 55″ length (46-48″ wide)

Age 9 thru 10            57″ to 59″ length (50″ wide)

Age 11 and older       62″ length (50″ wide)

 

The width of the quilts should be no more than 50″ for the older kids.  These quilts are just for loving and dragging around, not for their beds.  These are approximate sizes.

 

We frequently have children that are only 1 year apart in the same family, so it is nice if the 3 year old has a quilt that is smaller than is the 4 year old sibling, for example.  We will happily accept any quilt, but these suggested sizes make it easier to have the right size and age appropriate quilt available.

HARRIS HOSPITAL NEO-NATAL

 

Preemie quilts – (can be pastel or bright colors)  18″ to 36″ square.  Soft cottons or flannel on top and backing.  No batting is needed for quilts using flannel.  No tied quilts for these tiny ones.  No fleece is allowed in the hospital, as fleece can harbor germs even after washing.

 

Isolette covers – 36″ x 46″ made with batting.  According to the NICU Neonatal Supervisor, Stephanie Eidson, the quiet darker environment of a covered isolette help the babies sleep and grow better.

NURSING HOME THROWS AND WHEELCHAIR QUILTS:

 

Suggested sizes for wheelchair 38″ – 40″ wide by 40″ – 46″ long and for lap 50″ – 55″ wide by 50″ – 70″ long.  (However, we will find homes for any size you make.)  We need patriotic quilts for veterans.  Their eyes light up when they see them and appreciate their service being recognized.
