All quilts should have a pieced top, MUST contain wadding and should not use polar fleece as a backing in lieu of wadding.  The fabric used as backing may be pieced, but remember that this should be appropriate to the pieced top (e.g. big pink flower fabric should not be used as backing on a quilt for a teenage boy).

PLEASE REMEMBER:

  • No Buttons or embellishments
  • No Labels. It is hospital policy that all quilts are given anonymously.
  • No Polar Fleece or Minky – some children are allergic to the chemicals these fabrics are made from.

Is the quilt you are donating to this program suitable?  If you would be happy for a child in your family to receive this quilt as a gift, then yes it is suitable.

All gift quilts, to any organisation, should be of a standard that we would be happy to receive as a gift.
