Well, it's been awhile again. Life is just getting too busy I guess. It's over a week again.
The picture here is of another wheelchair quilt with foot pocket. A guild member made it. The ties are too short though so it is waiting for me to add long ties before I take it into work for the residents to use. This guild member took part in a round robin with me and she used her resulting piece for the quilt. The round robin was called :fractured quarter. You start with a fat quarter and each person makes 2 cuts. Adding a 5 inch strip to each cut. It was fun to do. I haven't made mine up yet. The picture of mine would be back in my archives.
I did finally get into my sewing room the last few days. I've just been working on my crumbs.
I ended up working an extra shift this week. Too many rn's off sick. One broke her foot at work. Glad that wasn't me.
Well, I know this is short but I really should do some house work.
Happy quilting,

Wow, what a great idea to make a quilt with foot pockets for someone in a wheelchair. What size do you make it and how do you make the foot pockets?

The foot pocket is attached to the back of the quilt. I put elastic in the top so it sort of snuggles around the feet. I think that the foot pocket piece as about 19" 20 inches. About 1/3 of the length of the quilt I believe.
It's been awhile since I made one.
