Quilts for Comfort Northeast – Meeting the challenge of bringing comfort one stitch at a time.



Hello to all our quilt making pals

We recently put out an appeal for a couple of boys Quilts for Comfort. And we have been successful. We have two such quilts arriving in the next few days. At the moment we have plenty of girlie quilts but we could really use a couple more for boys in reserve for the next requests. So we thought perhaps we could put out a different kind of challenge…. We know that it’s not always possible for someone to make a whole quilt to hand over to the Quilts for Comfort committee but perhaps you could make a 12” block. And once we have enough blocks, one of our volunteers will join them all together, quilt it and presto we have another boy quilt in the reserve.

So if making a single 12” block is more suitable to you than making a whole quilt, please do. And just to help you along we have posted a block pattern that might get you started but we will be happy with any block pattern you use. We will be posting other block patterns from week to week. So be sure to check out our pattern page on a regular bases. We would really appreciate your help.

I'm passionate about quiltmaking and have in recent years taken up longarm quilting with a good degree of success. I was born and raised in Canada but I moved to England in the mid nineties. I love being creative and so I dabble in many different types of craft.

  1. Dear Sandra,

    Just to say I will be glad to make a few blocks or even a quilt top but I am not able to do so until August as we are in the middle of our very large yearly commitment for the CLA Game Fair. Once that is done if you’d like I will make some things then.

    Hope all is well with you and yours.

    Kind regards,


    PS Don’t know why this won’t let me use correct margins.
