DVI (Domestic Violence Intervention) Quilts:

Our guild has been donating quilts to DVI for the last 15+ years, averaging approximately 100 quilts/year.   We usually have a workshop every April but accept quilts all year long.  You can make any pattern you choose in any colors you choose.  We ask that the quilts be approximately 45”x60” for children, and if you are so inclined, in recent years we find the Mom’s are using them as well.   We have no set size for an adult lap quilt, but something larger than a kid’s quilt that an adult can wrap in.

If you need an easy pattern to make a DVI quilt perfect for boys or girls, please find:
