Quilts of Valor Charity Project - The Three Yard Throw

To those of you who took home fabric kits and a pattern for the Quilts of Valor charity project... Here are some thoughts / guidelines for preparing your fabric for the January work day.

Feel free to cut the fabric and bring it with you to sew that day - January 6th.

In each kit, you have one (1) yard of fabric for the quilt top and two (2) yards for the back, which needs to be laundered.

To this, you will need to add two (2) more yards of fabric to complete the quilt top.  However, if you cut your fabric according to the pattern, you’ll have enough blocks (72) for two (2) quilt tops.

Each quilt top is four (4) blocks wide by nine (9) blocks long. 

You may choose not to make as many blocks / do only one top, and are certainly free to make yours more scrappy.

The Guild will purchase a bolt of batting for the quilts, and I encourage you to consider quilting it.  Marlene’s February class would be a great help in preparing and quilting.  If this is something you are uncomfortable with, we can explore other options.

These don’t have to be fancy, but they do have to be quilted.

Thank you for so graciously taking on this project.

If you did not take a pattern / kit, please come to the January workshop, with your basic sewing kit (BSK) and your machine, prepared to assist with sewing, ironing, etc. in order to complete these quilts.

If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call at 471-7345 or email me at
