Fidget Quilt Challenge!

Fidget QuiltFriendship Splinter Group issues a challenge to make some FIDGET QUILTS. Do you have One hour to spare? To make our first Fidget Quilt only took one hour... We have two facilities that have asked for our support making Fidget Quilts. Fidget quilts give wondering hands comfort to Alzheimer, Dementia and Autistic children. Check out google for more ideas: Fidget Quilts are similar to a toddler’s busy book with activities. Make a small quilt sandwich (backing, batting, and top). They don’t have to be big 18” x18 (about the size of a placemat). What to put on them? Goggle: Fidget Quilt to see examples. Some suggestions: Different textured material, bright colors, fleece, flannel, UFO blocks, smocking, tucking, bright colors, ribbons. Other suggestion; Velcro, buckles, pockets (cut off shirts), zippers, bath scrunches, things that makes noise.

Guidelines: 1) Make it durable – for continual washing. 2) Bright cloth, 3) Think about chocking hazard, 4) Nothing that fingers can get suck in. Contact Enid Edgeworth directly, or send an inquiry through the contact page. And.... post your creation on our Facebook Group!
