Wheelchair Lap Quilt

Welcome to 2023. I’m happy to see 2022 in the rearview mirror.  It was a rough year for me personally, but I’m hopeful that this will be a better year. 

Now that the holidays are behind us, I am able to share a couple of quilts I made for gifts.  The first quilt is this super simple Wheelchair Lap Quilt. 

I made this for my mother-in-law.  She suffers from advanced dementia and is no longer mobile.  I saw one similar to this on Pinterest, and designed my own pattern.  It features a pocket to keep her hands warm. 

I used my walking foot to complete the majority of the quilting work.  I added some dense free motion stippling to the pocket for added interest. 

My MIL loved it. What do you think?
