    I like the foot pocket idea! Would have to be for patients that no longer walk. I made a quilt for my dad for his wheelchair...it was about 42x50.

    Thank you, thank you, everyone! I am overcome that so many people here have good ideas to help me, and like the idea. I am pretty much of a "lone quilter" here where I live, and so your help is priceless.

    I love the idea of a foot-pocket and once more, would love ideas or plans as to how to make the most useful one.

    Thank you once more!

Some people only have socks on when sitting in wheel chairs and I always think their toes must be chilly. I would say it would be more of a rectangle than square and I think flannel would be perfect--again I am always on cold side so I think everyone is cold :-)

    Can't wait to see your projects

    I think the nursing home wants them this size. 36. X. 36.
    Keeps the quilts from getting caught in wheelchair wheels. Better verify with the facility.
