Comfort Quilts

At our meetings, take few minutes to browse the offerings available for busy hands to begin the work (pleasure) of preparing Comfort Quilts to be distributed to various groups in and around the area, such as Common Sense Adoption Services, Aseracare Hospice, Pinnacle Health Perinatal Units, Heart and Hands Sertoma, and Cumberland/Perry Domestic Violence Services.

Once we distribute comfort quilts to an organization,  we need to restock our supply. That is where you, as Letort Quilters, come in. All you have to do is stop by the Comfort Quilts table at the Sunday afternoon or Monday evening meetings and choose from a multitude of kits already made up for you to choose from. Along with the kits you have a choice of batting, binding strips, and backing to enable you to complete your Comfort Quilt at your leisure, in your own home.
