Neonatal Quilts

Neonatal Quilts for Cardinal Glennon are a newer project for the guild, beginning in 2014 when a Charter Guild members grandchild spent some time in the Neonatal unit. The hospital uses the small blankets to give the little ones some extra warmth.

Information for guild members wishing to make these small blankets:

Requested size 20″ X 24″ (on average) Please Contact Guild Member Sharon D. for more information and with any questions you might have.

Cancer Caps

The Crossroads Quilters Guild was asked to help make Cancer Caps by a local school group. The group provided us with the original (and slightly complicated) pattern. The simple updated pattern used today goes together quickly and easily.

Guild member information:

If you wish to make cancer caps please contact Guild member Sue W. for information and a pattern.

Project Linus Quilts

Project Linus is dedicated to providing a quilt, blanket, or afghan to sick children everywhere.  Project Linus covers children from ages birth to eighteen years of age so all sizes of blankets are needed and excepted. For more information on making quilts for the local Project Linus organization pleas contact the local Project Linus Coordinator.
