Quilt Sizing

COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAM

Notable Quilt Sizes for our Community Partners

Sexual Assault & Domestic Violence Treatment Centre

Comfort Quilts:

  • Front Dimensions: 50″ to 54″ width by 60″ to 66″ length
  • Backing & Batting Dimensions: 60″ width x 72″ length
  • Binding Requirements: 2.5″ wide x 264″ length (or 7 strips 2.5″ wide by WOF)
  • Preferred Material: Cotton and/or flannel

Please Note:

  1. We respectfully request that you refrain from the use of ‘religious’ themed fabrics or seasonal fabrics depicting a
    religious event (e.g. Christmas).  Novelty fabrics and all colour options are considered acceptable
  2. No ‘infant’/’baby’ themed fabrics please (babies under the age of 2) are not treated at this centre
  3. Child requirements:  require only 10 – 12 quilts annually for children under the age of 12 each year (appropriately themed fabrics are permitted)
  4. Teen/Youth requirements: need keeps growing (40+ quilts/year) for young people aged 12 – 19 years.  Gender bias exists with 80 – 85% female and 15 – 20% male, but latter is on increase.  Clientele favour a wide range of colours, but have a preference for quilts with strong design elements (e.g. graphic patterns).
