Kanata Quilt Guild

Community Quilts

(also known as Charity Quilts)

Last year was an amazing year for the Community Quilt Program – 98 quilts donated to a number of local charitable organizations. Thanks to Carol & Colette and all the members who did the work to piece, quilt and bind those quilts!

In 2023-2024, Kanata Quilt Guild Community outreach will focus on the following charities: Roger Neilson House, Hospice Care Ottawa, and Maycourt Club (Christmas Market). 

Quilt Specifications

  • Roger Neilson Children’s Hospice – quilt should measure approximately 62” x 80” in gender-neutral colors, with a minimal amount of white or light coloured fabrics.
  • Ottawa Hospice – flannel comfort quilts for their residential program; kits are available from Pam and/or Colette for these big block quilt tops.
  • Maycourt Club Christmas Market – small items suitable for selling at the market – table runners, pouches, baskets, cozies, sachets, gift bags, placemats, etc.
  • You can also refer to our Quilties section if you are looking to make something small for a newborn.

We continue to accept donations of suitable fabric for our outreach program, and volunteers are needed for piecing, quilting and binding. Please let us know if you can help out in any way.

There are 2 special Sew Days planned for this year for us to work on our community projects together. They are scheduled for:

  • October 4, 2023
  • May 1, 2024

The Sew Days will take place at Glen Cairn United Church, from 9:30 – 3:00. Bring your sewing machine and a community project to work on, or pick up a quilt kit to sew or come and help with a number of other tasks.

We are looking forward to a fun and productive year!
