Community Service



 For over 25 years, our members have donated many items to the community which have included stuffed teddy bears
for children in emergency rooms, breast cancer pillows for the Cancer Society, place mats for Meals on Wheels, pillowcases
for children dealing with cancer, preemie quilts for a local hospital NICU, Quilt of Valor for the Veteran's Administration and
many Camp Erin quilts for a children's camp. Quilters are known for their generosity and giving nature. Contributing to the
community through the historic art of quilting by providing handmade articles is a deeply satisfying experience.

Directions for making:

Pillowcases for Cancer Patients

  • We are making pillowcases for the oncology unit at Lehigh Valley Hospital and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
  • These pillowcases are bringing smiles to many faces.
  • Finished size: Standard Pillowcase: 20" x 31"
  • Note: Please pre-wash fabric before stitching and then wash completed project in HOT water to remove any germs for the protection of the oncology children.
  • Supplies: 3/4 yard fabric for body; 1/2 yard fabric for border
  • Also, instructions from a website on making a Burrito style pillowcase with only 3 seams. Link

Sewing Instructions:

  1. Cut the body of the case 26 1/2" x 40 1/2" and the border 10 1/2" x 40 1/2".
  2. Fold the border in half lengthwise, wrong sides together and press.
  3. Place the right side of the border on the right side of the body of the case. Stitch together using 1/2 inch seam allowance.
  4. Place right sides of the pillowcase together. Stitch down the side and across the bottom.
  5. Turn to the right side and press.
  6. Place washed pillowcase in a zip lock plastic bag.

Smile knowing you have brought a smile to a sick child! THANK YOU!!!

Preemie Quilts for Local Hospital Intensive Care Unit

  • Finished size: 18 x 22 inches (can be a bit bigger but no smaller)
  • One side must be flannel (flannel on both sides is OK, too). No batting. They can be machine or hand quilted.

Breast Cancer Pillows

  • Cut two pieces of fabric, 7 1/2" x 11 1/2". One side can be pieced but one side must be solid. Sew both pieces right sides together leaving an
  • opening for turning right side out. After turning, stuff firmly and sew opening together.
  • Finished size: 7 x 11 inches.


Meals on Wheels Placemats

  • Placemats can be 16 to 18 inches long and 11 1/2 to 13 inches wide. They can be rectangular, octagonal or oval. They can be pieced or appliqued.
  • Please do not use any 3-D embellishments. Placemats should be quilted.  Plain basic placemats or those with a special holiday theme are a wonderful way to say "we care! " to those served by Meals on Wheels.


Lap Robes


  • Simple lap robes 45 by 60 inches are wonderful for patients at Cedarbrook and the Phoebe home. They may be pieced, quilted or tied. Using a thin batting, they may be backed with flannel.
        
Hospital Donation Teddy Bears


Camp Erin Quilts

  • Healing For Kids and Teens Bereavement Camp - 50 x 70 inches quilt


Veterans' Quilt of Valor

  • Use of military-branch-specific fabrics (Army, Navy, etc.) or non-“patriotic” fabric (overly floral), unless the recipient is known in advance, may create difficulty in identifying a recipient.
  • A Quilt of Valor is to be large enough to cover an average-sized adult, with an ideal size approximately 60” x 80.” Finished size can be no smaller than 55” x 65” and no larger than 72” x 90.”
