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.


Quilters Day Out - April 18, 2015 10 AM – 4 PM

Regular meeting site. We are having a BAKE OFF!! Using 10” squares commonly called Layer Cakes or Cake Squares we will sew, slice, dice, rearrange, and sew again to make at least four new blocks that look as if you’ve been piecing forever!! (Remember the Rice Krispie Treats commercial where the mom flapped flour all over her face to make her family think she had been slaving all day on their treats?). See Quilters Day Out page for more info!
