FAQ’s for Quilters Against Breast Cancer
What is the deadline for finishing the quilt?
What are the dimensions of a queen size quilt?
What to do with leftover fabrics and embellishments?
Can more than one quilt be created?
Are there additional ways a stitcher can help the foundation?
Depending on the number of people creating the quilt, some will take longer to make than others. However, we hope that the finished quilt will be returned to Making Memories within twelve months.
A queen size quilt is 84 inches by 92 inches.
Larger sizes are acceptable.
Keep the extra fabrics and embellishments for personal sewing projects or return to Making Memories with the completed quilt.
More than one quilt
YES! Request more than one shipment (12 gowns) or create additional quilts with the extra fabric.
