Rockdale resident Betty Brown has recently returned to a longtime passion, quilting lap robes for donation to residents of nursing homes. “I’d been ill and couldn’t do it but I’ve done about 20 since I’ve returned to quilting,” she said. Husband Jay Brown estimates his wife has made over 100 lap robes and donated them. Mrs. Brown spends between one and two days on each robe.
