Free Patterns

​Click the illustration below for specific instructions for that quilt design. 

  • Free Kits Obtained at Workshops

    • The Quilt Designs - Those illustrated below are provided as kits during our workshops at the sign-out table. 

    • Finished Sizes roughly 38" x 40" 

    • Included in Kits:

      • various top fabrics cut and ready to begin sewing

      • one-piece backing fabric which is intended to be used for machine self-binding. Kits do not include binding fabric because it is easier and faster to machine-self bind.

    • Time to Complete - ​Most workshop attendees can complete the "Alternating Squares" quilt top during the workshop and choose to take it home to complete the quilting and binding.

  • Other Quilt Patterns:

    • Donated new quilts can be any quilt pattern and size. Since we minister to children from birth to 22 years of age, older children are the most difficult to bless. This is because larger quilts are harder and more time consuming to make. Older males are particularly difficult to bless because most fabric motifs favor females or very young children.

    • Bright uplifting colors and fabric themes create an encouraging and uplifting environment.

    • All finished new quilts must have the official Quilts for Kids label sewn to the back of the quilt. Labels can be obtained for free at our workshops. They cost us 25 cents each so any donation will be helpful. 

    • ​All binding must be sewn down by machine because hand stitching can quickly fall apart when washed daily in hospital industrial machines.
    • If you wish your donation to go to a child in a hospital environment, click this link for further instructions.
