Comfort Quilts

Quinobequin Quilters is committed to offering comfort to those in need through our Comfort Quilt project.  Either together or individually, members create colorful quilts designed to bring warmth to the recipients.  One meeting each year is devoted to working on Comfort Quilts.

We are currently making Comfort Quilts for the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families' "Special Kids Special Care" program.  DCF SKSC Web Site  In recent years 47 quilts have been given to this program, which provides quilts to foster children with medical problems. These quilts are often the only possessions they have.

Other recipients have included Sisters of Charity, the Winter Warmth project, the Sharing Foundation's Roteang Orphanage in Cambodia and the Wayside Hospice in Wayland.

Photos of many past Comfort Quilts can be seen below.

While quilters can create comfort quilts with any design of their choosing, we have a small (but growing) library of suggested patterns that work up very quickly and lend themselves to a community effort.  Instructions can be found here.
