Service Projects Challenge


Friendship Star Quilters Quilt Show 2019




Help support FSQ’s service projects outreach by making a quilt that will hang in the Quilt Show and will then be donated to Fisher Houses at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda.



  1. Children, teens and adults are served by Fisher Houses. Therefore, YOU get to choose the size quilt you’d like to make. It should be no smaller than 36” x 36” for a young child, or at least 42” x 52” for a lap size for an adult.  The maximum size for a lap quilt is 72” x 72”, give or take an inch or two. You can certainly also make a twin-size quilt.


  1. Your quilt should include, on the front of the quilt, one of the following:

    – stars in the fabric; or

    – any “star” pattern, using any fabric.


  1. Your quilt can be hand or machine quilted. If it is for a young child, please do not embellish it with anything that can be pulled off and swallowed.


  1. Do not put a sleeve on your quilt, as the quilts will be hung using skirt hangers.


  1. Finished quilts must be turned in on Quilt Turn In day. Your quilt will not be returned to you after the Quilt Show, but will be donated directly.


Thank you in advance for your generous support of FSQ’s Service Projects!
