    Thank you! She wanted a vinyl back, but I wanted the back to be pretty too, so I use a vinyl table cloth, and put it the quilt sandwich before I quilted it. This way water or liquid won't go through and get her clothes wet.

    That is pretty. I have a pattern for one, but it is not that long. Thanks for sharing.

    You've taken so many of the needs of elderly people into account in your design. Congratulations and THANK YOU!

    My parents and my parents-in-law are all still alive but in their mid-to-late 80's. My father, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, uses a bib at every meal. To put it politely, my father-in-law probably should do the same.

    I would love to make bibs that they might feel good about. Would you please share your pattern and/or make a tutorial for me (and others) to follow?

    Oh, how I'd appreciate that!

    Looks really good, but I'd prefer it to called a clothing protector if I owned one. Bib sounds a little babyish to me.

    Our guild makes them...we call them "adult clothing protectors". Yours is very pretty.

    I found the pattern here http://www.laurassewingstudio.com/NL/060407/060407.html,

    What I did was cut my front, back, batting and vinyl to a size that was big enough. I free motion quilted them all together. I then cut the "Clothing Protector" out according to the pattern. I cut out the pocket and basted it onto the bottom of the Protector. I was going to use a bias binding, but didn't have any here at home to match, and for the sake of time didn't want to make some. So I used a satin stich around the edge. I had to go around the entire piece twice to get the coverage I wanted. Put a velcro closure. Then did the monogramming.

    Just because something is useful does not mean it has to be ugly. You did a good job there.

    I know she will love it! Glad to see it has her name on it...much less likely to get lost.
