Service Projects for 2018 and Honor Quilts

PPQG members can support one or all of these projects throughout the year.  Completed projects can be brought to the meetings each month.  We will try to have some Service Project workshops throughout the year.

  • Comfort quilts for babies at CHKD that get to go home but don't have a very good prognosis.  For these quilts, you can use brighter fabrics and sizes can be from 24 inches to 36 inches.
  • Small quilts for babies at Riverside Hospital that don't have a blanket to go home in.  The size can be from 30 to 36 inches.
  • Small fabric hearts can be made for parents that have a child in NICU.  The heart will be worn against the Mother’s skin and then put in the isolette with their baby. They can be made out of cotton or flannel and no batting is needed.  A pattern will be provided at the meetings and is on the web site.
  • Pillowcases for children with cancer being treated at MCV in Richmond.  They need to be full size pillowcases made with bright novelty fabric.  Use 100 % cotton fabrics and don’t use flannel or fabric with glitter.  It takes ¾ yard of bright novelty fabric appropriate for children and ¼ yard contrast for the band.  Use your favorite method of making pillow cases or a pattern will be posted on the website.  Finished pillowcases will be taken to the Blue Crab Quilt Co. in Richmond for distribution at MCV.   

Committee Members are Pat Winters, Joan Cochran, Ellen Wood, Maggie Haley, Brenda Smith and Gala Damato. If you have questions, contact Gala Damato at
