I believe I mentioned earlier that our hand-sewing group usually does some sort of a mercy project during the summer. Many of our members are teachers and have more time available in July and August. This year one of our proposed mercy projects is lap quilts for wheelchair patients at the VA.
I thought I would like to make four of these, with the fringe benefit of using up my stash of Civil War fabrics. My plan is to get all of them to flimsy stage before quilting/tying and binding. I cut and cut and cut from the left-over fabrics from Ninety Degrees in the Shade, and the CW bin is still mighty full. These little quilts are to measure 36x36 up to 36x47, so it could turn out that I make more than four.
A second one with a different color scheme is in progress. Stay tuned.
