Material : Moda Chic Charm Squares
Pattern : Leesa Chandler
My husbands Aunt is now confined to a wheelchair and as we often take her on outings, I felt she needed a lap quilt to cover her legs and keep her warm. I looked around and found a pattern that would suit perfectly. It was on Leesa Chandlers website (same designer as my Buckle Bag) and another bonus -it's free.
The top came together quite easily and then came the dreaded quilting arghhhh. I have been practising my Free Motion but didn't feel it was good enough to use on a quilt yet, so I opted to use my walking foot.
I chose to do double argyle lines so I set to drawing lines across the top of the quilt with my erasable pen ( I am fussy with distance and accuracy) The only advice I would offer, is to gently push the material back against the action of the walking foot otherwise you will get a pleat when two lines meet.
I intend to sew ties onto the back so we can secure it to the wheel chair for our next outing. Hope she
likes it, I do :)
