OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAQuilts should be made from white or gentle pastel fabric and should be quilted. Quilt tops may be pieced or plain, and backings can be flannelette sheeting, fleece fabric, muslin or patchwork fabric. You do not need to include wadding in the quilts, but if you do, it should be thin (sheeting or fine wadding).

Please make sure that all materials used are machine washable.
