Community Quilts

The Auckland Quilt Guild organises the making and distribution of quilts and other handmade item’s to worthy community organisations.

Members are encouraged to take part in the quilt making process.  This may be making up blocks or quilt tops.  Other members may sandwich and quilt the tops, add bindings or make complete quilts.   Some members contribute by donating fabrics or by helping on the Community Quilts room on Guild days.  Making Community Quilts is often a way to try out new patterns or techniques and members enjoy this.

The Guild is always grateful to receive the many donations of fabrics, batting and notions that continually arrive.  The Guild sponsors the purchase of batting and we are always grateful for donations.

The finished quilts are beautiful.  Members take pride in producing functional and attractive items that are very popular with recipients.

During 2021 – 2022, Community Quilts have made donations of quilts to Auckland City Mission, Salvation Army, Middlemore Foundation, Give a Kid a Blanket, Variety Children’s Charity, Starship Children’s Hospital and a number of smaller charities.  Annually we expect to donate in excess of 350 quilts.
