VERY SNUGGLY QUILTS

 

This is an ongoing project, whereby generous crafters can make and donate quilts to the families of stillborn babies or to children attending hospital. 

 

If you are making a quilt for the Very Snuggly Quilt program, please ensure that:

  • There are no buttons or small embellishments on the quilt;
  • The quilt contains wadding;
  • The quilt is one you would be happy to give a child in your family.

 

Below are the sizes for the quilts, should you like to make some for this very worthy and amazing cause.
