I thought I would try something different today. I did a wall hanging of two children building two snowmen. I appliqued all the pieces using Heat N Bond Lite. I love using the lite because it enables you to sew over the fabrics without the needle getting gummed up with glue. I
The newest lap quilt is a Patriotic lap quilt. This lap quilt would be good for a male or female. The size of the quilt is 28"x29" with pockets to warm your hands and a pocket for your personal items. The lap quilt is made from cotton and flannel. The pockets are lined with flannel and the back is flannel, good for those cold winter days and nights. This lap quilt would make an awesome gift. If there are any novelty fabrics you would like a lap quilt made from, I'm sure we could fulfill your needs.
I should have mentioned that the lap quilts can be washed by machine with cool water. You can also dry in the dryer. I have attached the buttons with a very strong nylon thread that won't break.
After visiting my grandmother in the nursing home, I observed alot of the patients figiting with different items. I made a lap quilt with different textured fabrics. I also put a piece of elastic with beads strung across the pocket giving them something to fidget with. The quilt has a pocket for their hands to slip in with two other pockets, one for tissues and one for a chap stick. I found these two items were what my grandmother was always looking for. I have been donating the quilts to see how they like them. I have already made some changes. At first I had put the pocket opening on top but my husband suggested the pocket opening on the sides so your hands could slide right in. I am going to start selling these lap quilts on my site for $48.00.
I have been quilting for close to 30 years and after loosing my job twelve years ago, I am now able to do what I love, QUILT! I specialize in baby quilts and have designed the "Lovie Lap Quilt" with pockets.
