Donations for Grenfell Tower survivors

If you want to donate finished quilts to the survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire, then we recommend you send them directly to one of the collecting points. These are changing on an hourly basis and are being set up across London so please check out in your area where is most appropriate for you.

We are also asking for quilted blocks, 12.5 inches. This means that you will add wadding and a backing and quilt them. We will then join them all together using quilt as you go. This is the same method that has been used for the Soy Amado quilts and we are shamelessly stealing the idea. You will find some amazing finished examples over on the blog.

Any orphan blocks etc you have laying around, just add to them to make them large enough or trim them down if they are too big.

20 blocks will make a full quilt and having a lot of the work done by you guys will make it easier for us.

Please use whatever wadding you have, we will try and match up the different types for consistency.

Message us and we will send you the address to send them to.

As you can imagine, the situation is still uncertain at the moment, the key in the short term is to get completed quilts to people ASAP so if you have any spare please get them out first.

  1. Hello. I have new quilts I would be happy to donate to Grenfell survivors. However, can I be sure they will be handed directly to survivors and not sent to some collection centre in a church hall somewhere, as seen on tv. Where can I send them to please? Kaye.
