Wheel Chair Quilt

Hi friends!
This measures 25 by 50 so I added two strips one on each side.
Then it measured 37 buy 50, a tiny bit longer. But when I wash it it may not be that big.  They always shrink some .
So one wheelchair top made , Think the next one will be stars.  We are suppose to make three each so that would make me three.
Look what came yesterday!
Was suppose to get here today, so I can go ahead and sandwich it. After I pick out a backing!
Got to go to town and pick up a few things for our family reunion this coming Sunday. This is my mother's side of the  family. My mother is gone but we ,Aunt's and cousins, are all close. When we are gone nobody will do this I am sure!  My kids don't go, some of my cousins kids don't come either.
But we were raised together and the next generation hasn't been . After they got grown they are all over the place.
We drug then to the reunions as long as we could.
Have a great day

Oh I know just what you mean about family reunions; I miss ours so much; no one left but little ole me!! I like to try to get together with my children and grands for a big party at least once a year...such fun...being an only child I have no brothers or sisters to call up to help set them up....
and now that the grands are all growing up they are all so busy with their jobs and lives...but i keep on trying.
I love that Irene block "Good night Irene, goodnight; Irene goodnight.
Good night Irene..... goodnight Irene, I'll see you in my dreams"...remember that one?? I miss my Dad playing it on the piano and us all singing...
hugs, Julierose

That's a nice pattern for a W/C quilt. Reunions may not mean much to them now, but it may become more important as they get older.

Love the quilt. Hope you have a fantastic time at the family reunion, so nice that you all still get together. Shame the younger ones don't go anymore but you can't force them.

I think doing this for nursing home people is wonderful - would have loved it if my mom had one.
