The time is getting closer! Our goal is to produce 65 wheelchair or lap quilts for the VA Hospital nursing home in Detroit, to be delivered the Friday of NN14... Are you in?
The quilts need not be complex -- just heartfelt. Cotton fabric, polyester batting, and your love... Wheelchair quilts should be about 36" x 60" -- lap quilts can be 50" x 60" or whatever size you feel like. If you have an unfinished top you would like to complete and donate, that would be great!
Here is the list of pledged quilts -- please let me know if you would like to be added!
