Helping Unfinished Blocks and Tops Become QOVs

We always take donations of orphan blocks or fabric (especially yardage). We are willing to take unfinished or finished tops and facilitate getting backings, machine quilting, and shipping, if needed. We have an army of willing quilters who will make sure your top gets completed and shipped to soldiers who will find comfort in having it.

ALL fabric must be quilt shop quality.

The minimum size for a QOV is 50" by 60" (Remember to allow for shrinkage when the quilt is washed)
The maximum size for a QOV is 72" by 96"

If you have extra material from piecing your top, please make a matching pillowcase or include the fabric when you give us your unfinished quilt top. Each of our QOVs is shipped in a pillowcase to give the hospital bed a nice touch with the quilt. And the pillowcases can later be used for storing the QOV.
*Pillowcases are standard/twin size.

If you need additional information on how to donate orphan blocks or quilt tops to our cause, please contact Nikki McDonald at
