Preferred Sizes for Charity Quilts

For the beneft of the new members who have joined the guild over the past few months, I thought I would take this opportunit y to review the minimum size for the diferent types of quilts that Transiton House needs.

Baby quilts – 37” by 50”

Single bed quilts – 50” by 70”

Double bed quilts – 65” by 75”

Although it is wonderful to receive donatons of completed quilts, we recognize that not everyone can wrestle a large quilt a round on their domestc machine, so we are grateful to have a group of women who will quilt tops that are donated.
