Quilt created from t-shirts collected around the world. As a special request from a patient's husband, a Gentiva volunteer assembled 36 t-shirts to make this fabulous quilt as a reminder of their worldwide travels.


Comfort a Gentiva hospice patient with your handiwork! Use your imagination to bring a smile to a hospice patient.

If you can sew a straight line, you can make a lap blanket, pillow, shawl, or clothing protector for a hospice patient.

Other projects that a patient would enjoy are decorated picture frames, colorful flowerpots with a cheerful plant, or your creative idea!

Immediate needs:
Lap blankets (knitted, crocheted or tied fleece)
Neck pillows (patterns available)
Hand grips (patterns available)
Bolster pillows
Opportunity to work at home to help hospice patients.
Great project for community or church group, sewing circle or quilters.
