Supporting Gracie's Gifts

The Knoxville Modern Quilt Guild has voted to support Gracie's Gifts, a charity that provides specialized clothing and swaddling blankets for premature babies at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. You can find out  more about Gracie's Gifts here.

At our meeting on November 19, we will be collecting swaddling blankets and NICU smocks to give to Gracie’s Gifts for delivery to the NICU.
  • Blankets are made by finishing any soft cotton flannel or flannelette in a square around 40" (width of fabric). You may hem, surge, or use any method of finishing you choose -- just keep in mind it should be soft to protect the babies' delicate skin. The blankets will all be washed before they are distributed, but if you pre-wash your fabric, please don't use detergent.
Please contact if you have any questions about this project. Thank you for helping support this worthy cause!
