    Scrappy Lappy Wheel Chair quilt finishes..

    Finished friday night, two lap quilts for nursing home patients in wheel chairs. I hope to have a stack of these made by June when I will beging being part of this ministry in my parish. The one is a plain old 9 patch block and the second is a crazy quilt block using cotton fabrics and my 15-91 Singer to piece, my Singer 319W to embroidery and my Juki 2000 to quilt with, was not quite sure how to quilt the crazy one... but here they are.Name:  IMG_5431.JPG

    Good work. I really like the fact that your quilting gives interesting textures for a lonely person to enjoy.

    Very nice. That is a crazy quilt as I learned it, your pieces go however you have the spot for, not the same for every block. Thank you for sharing.
