Thank you so much for your interest in this project! It is our goal to provide these very special quilt sets to hospitals as they are requested.
It is really easy to get involved. We are not looking for completed quilts – just flimsy’s (aka quilt tops). We will be cutting the tops, into our special heart shaped pattern then backing with fleece, machine quilting, and binding. When completed there will be two small 8″x10″ hearts (for loved ones to always keep near) and one large heart shaped quilt to use as swaddling blanket for baby.
Please join our quilters group on facebook, we plan to extend monthly themed challenges aimed at scrap busting. You can choose to participate in the challenge or you can just make whatever you like. Either way come join us at Expected Hugs Quilters!!
We only have a few rules that we ask you to follow.
QUILT TOP DONATION RULES
– Size: tops should be at least 30″ x 26″
– We prefer tops to be gender neutral (but it is not required).
– You must include an extra 1″ square (or scrap big enough to cut a 1″ square) of each fabric you use so we can add them to the main Expected Hugs quilt project.
– Choose your own pattern (we aren’t picky) and have fun!
By choosing to participate in this project you will be helping us bring light to families going through a very dark time. You will become a part of these families journey’s as you pour your heart into each top you sew. If you would like, you may include a note to the family with each quilt top you donate. It is our goal to let them know that their baby will always be remembered.
Please mail your finished quilt tops to:
