On tap for this week, trimming and binding the Collection Challenge Plus quilt.
I quilted it with a simple diagonal grid. I didn't want the quilting to detract from the fabrics and the plus motifs. At 58" by 70", this is intended to be a sofa quilt, maybe for a family with kids, so it may end up on the floor, being used as a fort, etc. I wanted to keep it soft, not so dense that the quilting adds stiffness.
Also to do this week, make a fidget quilt for donation. My guild is making them for a memory care unit at a local nursing home, and they're due at our meeting next week. A fidget quilt is a tactile lap mat for a dementia patient to stroke, pick at, play with, etc. Here's the one I made for my dad last year. I have different embellishments for the one I'll make this week, but some of the textured materials are the same, the faux fur and the stretchy mesh. The whole thing has to be washable. I use a hand towel for the backing, just the right size for across someone's lap without getting caught in wheelchair wheels, and handy for spills, etc.
So although these projects aren't technically on my design wall, I'm linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times. Check out everyone else's design walls over there.
