Soooo, Nancy to the rescue! What a great opportunity to make a quilt!!!
I went through the piles of my mom's fabric and found a great collection of golf themed fabric. One of the pieces must have been a panel at one time, or intended as pillows or something. All that was left of that piece was one large square with a golf scene which I used as the focal point of my quilt.
My desired size, after doing some research for quilts for people in wheel chairs, was 36" x 36". A row of flying geese around the central block seemed appropriate, as I remember my dad talking about geese on the golf course back when he golfed. Then I added a border and that brought me to my desired finished size. Easy peazy!
I brought it into my longarm room and found the perfect golf themed quilt design containing golf bags, flags, tees, etc. I used wool batting and flannel for the back, then put a wide flannel binding on it.
I'll see dad on Sunday - I think he's going to love it!
