River Squares Quilt Pattern for a wheelchair
The batiks in this quilt make me realize fall is just around the corner. Our weather has been perfect the last couple of days……it sounds like we have some 90 degree days coming up though.I just finished up this quilt for a special order. This is a lap quilt for a woman in a wheelchair. It is made with all batik fabrics and the size is 36″ x 48″.
I used my River Squares pattern for this quilt and added one more row to make it a little longer. This pattern goes together fast and easy…..my favorite kind of quilt.
I wanted the quilt to have some loft so I tried to do a large swirly free-motion stitching. I really, really have a hard time with that type of quilting…..I think I had to stop at least 3 times and use my seam ripper as I had a pleat in the back. I do much better with teeny tiny stitching. I put a batik on the back also.
I used a 50wt Aurifil thread. The color is 2340 and my spool is almost gone…..I seem to use this color a lot! Be sure to stop by tomorrow as……there just might be a giveaway of Aurifil thread.
I put a color catcher in the wash machine and dryer…..looks like it caught some of the color! I always use one when washing a quilt.
I first made this quilt in brown batiks and also in blue batiks. In another post I made River Squares pillows to match this quilt.
