Covering Orphans – Quilting Costs
We made a trip to Joanns this morning to pick up some quilting fabric. Emma picked up enough material to make approximately 8 quilts.
The quilts that Emma is making are approximately 24″x30″. She uses two different patterns for quilt top, a soft fleece for the quilt back, and a nice silky binding for the border.
When it’s all complete, it costs Emma approximately $10 per quilt (on sale) – not including thread – and of course, all of her hard work. Emma’s goal is to start out making 1 quilt a week.

If you would like to help Emma, you can purchase a gift card to Joanns or Hobby Lobby to help her with the cost of materials. You can also make quilts for Emma to deliver to the hospital as well.
