Charitable Quilts

The Charitable Quilts Committee for Arapahoe County Quilters focuses on making quilts for local organization that help people in need. 

We have many volunteers who participate in our efforts. We assemble kits with instructions for Arapahoe County Quilt members to sew into tops. We put together quilt sandwiches with tops, batting and backs ready for quilting. The quilting is done with a variety of quilting methods including free motion, continuous line and by longarm machine. We also have ACQ members that complete the quilt binding. 

Many of the quilts are donated to safe shelters for the homeless, hospitals,and people who have suffered.


Last year ACQ completed many wonky quilts and I will always love wonky. As we begin 2021 I am looking forward to scrappy 4 patches and 9 patch variations.  Look at the links below for ideas!


The Denver Metro Area Long Arm Quilters and other long-arm volunteers throughout the Denver area machine quilt some of our charitable quilts.
