    our group donates lap quilts to the local nursing home. They asked for them to be no bigger than 36X36 for wheelchair patients.

    I have heard that some places ask you to round the bottom corners, does your local nursing home ask this? Just curious - I was thinking of making some to use up my stash. I left a message for the gal at the nursing home, but she didn't call back yet.

    thanks for putting this post up. i had finished some flannel rag quilts and i still have some 10 inch squares. i was thinking of combining them to make some lap quilts for nursing homes. i did one quilt for a local alzheimer center. it ended up being around 45 x 63 but i think some made smaller would better for those in wheelchairs.

    I make up the blocks I like, lay it out & if the blocks don't look to make it wide enough, use sashing between them along with my border. It's mostly personal preferrence I think.

    There has been nothing said about rounding the corners. One person suggested putting ties on the top corners so they could be tied about the patient, but we haven't heard if the nursing home would like that
