Theme of Quilt

Below is a listing of theme choices that we feel will have enough pattern choices for the stitchers. We do try and fill special requests when we can, but those requests must be approved in advance. Please pick 3 possible themes you would like and put them in preferred order. We will use only ONE of the requested themes for your child's quilt! We will try and fulfil your first request if possible, but please know that we may approve one of the others. This might occur if there is over use of the theme for that year (makes it hard to get stitchers to sign up) Please fill in all 3 spaces from the themes listed below.

Please look over this listing carefully before making your choices.

If possible, please pick only one....unless you are combining two similar themes... eg Heroes and Patriotic together.

Please remember to enter your theme choices in the spaces provided below.

  • Angels
  • Animals - soft (animals you would want to snuggle)
