Donate a quilt main image

Every year we receive hundreds of beautiful homemade quilts to be donated to charity. As they are such a popular project, we've provided a list of charities that accept quilt donations all year round! So you can go ahead and create quilts whenever you like and send them to a charity of your choice.
