Most of us are aware of or have been blessed by a hospice program. The Shenandoah Valley Quilter’s Guild wants to provide comfort to patients and their families and demonstrate our support for Valley hospice programs by making Lap Quilts.
We distribute the quilts to three area hospices – Blue Ridge Hospice, Hospice of the Shenandoah, and Rockingham Memorial Hospice.
We provide a wide variety of colors and styles. Our veterans are given red, white and blue quilts. Many quilts are floral or colorful for ladies and more subdued colors for older men. The styles can be from 3 inch blocks in a charm quilt to using scraps for a string quilt, log cabin and others. The preferred sizes are from 36″ to maximum of 60″ in width. The length should be a minimum of 48″ to maximum of 60″.
