Methodist Children’s Home Society Charity Quilts

Methodist Children’s Home Society, Redford, MI  https://mchsmi.org  

We are making quilts for children currently in foster care in metro Detroit. 

Quilt Specifics:

  • Quilt size-crib or lap size in fabrics appropriate for children, solids or prints. 
  • Crib=36×52
  • Lap=50×60
  • Add the child’s name to quilt-appliqué, embroidery or label. 
  • Include a bag to store/carry the quilt. We can also use members who would just like to make bags. 
  • Drawstring bag to hold quilt – Jeni Baker Patterns-basic pattern https://www.incolororder.com/2011/10/lined-drawstring-bag-tutorial.html 
  • She also sells a pattern for $9.00 that includes other sizes.  

Children we need quilts for:

  • Baby boy-infant
  • Boy-8 years old, likes blue and red
  • Baby boy-infant, baby blue
  • Boy-3 years old, likes dark blue

I have created a Pinterest board with ideas and links to free patterns. https://pin.it/78KJl19

We are also looking for quilt tops or quilts that we can have in reserve.  We have a long arm quilter who has volunteered to quilt for us and Fort Street Presbyterian Church is generously contributing $250.00 toward this project. We can use this for batting, supplies, etc.
