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 do not have a very good prognosis. For these quilts, you can use brighter fabrics and sizes can be from 24-36 inches. Small quilts for babies at Riverside Hospital that do not have a blanket to go home in. The size can be from 30-36 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 percent 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.

PPQG Honor Quilts


Mission Statement: “We will make and award quilts to honor the service and sacrifices of military members, safety professionals, and their family members. We will bring comfort and healing by employing superior craftsmanship and standards of excellence.”


Statistics: As of Sept. 6, 2016, PPQG members have delivered more than 1,000 quilts to our American service members. The Peninsula Piecemakers Quilt Guild voted in May 2007 to become involved in Quilts of Valor as our ongoing service project. Because of changes in the Quilts of Valor organization in 2014, PPQG decided to continue to provide quilts to our wounded soldiers; however, under our own Guild name. Since Jan. 1, 2015, we have donated our quilts to our wounded service members under the name Peninsula Piecemakers Honor Quilts. We have expanded our mission to include safety professionals injured in the line of duty. When the Guild is in the public eye, such as at Newport News Park for the Fall Festival, or at our quilt show, we frequently have blocks ready for individuals to sign with their good wishes for our recipients. These are then made into quilts for our projects.

Each quilt is a gift of love. Costs of materials and shipping come from donations by our members and others. All donations are greatly appreciated and will help get these quilts to the wounded men and women serving our Country. If you would like to join us in this mission, donations are always welcome.


Contact Terri McHenry and Karen Whitley if you would like to find out how you can help, have us speak at your organizational meeting, volunteer or to make a donation. Some of the photos above were taken at Walter Reed Hospital where Sherry and Gala delivered 28 quilts to Marines and other service members. Pictures below are group workdays to make honor quilts.
