I am making a wheelchair quilt as a surprise for my aunt. She is in a power chair due to MS pretty much paralyzing her left side, and when she goes out they often use a transfer chair just because it is easier to deal with. With the weather turning colder I want to make a quilt for her...
I finally decided to just do an offset brick quilt using a jelly roll I had. I started cutting it last night, it will be 6" finished bricks, with 3" bricks on the ends of every other row to make up for the offset.
So... if I do a row of 6 bricks it would be 36" and 7 bricks would make it 42"... not sure which way to go! I don't want it to get caught up in her wheels or drag on the floor as it drapes over, so I am kinda thinking 36" ... but does anyone out there have any actual experience to know which would be the better width?
I read that wheelchair quilts should be 36-48" wide and all sorts of opinions on lengths. So, while I have you... what length (in multiples of 2" of course) would you go with?
