I am stumped. I have been looking all over for requirements for quilt batting for a St. Judes quilt to be donated for a patients use. Does anyone know if they require a specific type of batting for use in their quilts? Ginny
I don't know for sure, but if I had to guess, I would think all organizations prefer 100% cotton as that can be washed at high temps in hospital laundry facililities.

You know, Nancy, that was my thought too, but I wanted to do it right for them. Thanks for your input. Ginny
SInce there is no post requesting something specific, you might contact the Volunteer Department. They usually handle such matters at most hospitals and would most likely know. I'm not sure where you live but here's a link to the Regional VOlunteer Offices. I bet they would find out an answer for you.
I also tend to agree with Nancy about the cotton.
I made quilts for Quilts for Kids and they have specific requirements because, as Nancy said, the quilts have to be able to withstand the high temps in the hospital's laundry facility. You might check the requirements at the Quilts for Kids website. If you follow their guidelines your quilt would make it safely through the laundry.
