How to Make a Fidget Quilt

From the blogger: "What is a fidget quilt? A fidget quilt is a lap quilt that helps provide stimulation for the fidgeting hands of Alzheimer's, dementia, and autistic people. It soothes the fidgeting by entertaining them, busying hands and fingers, stimulating their senses, and giving them something to do.

Learn about fidget quilts, how to embellish fidget quilts, and tips for making fidget quilts by following the link below to the fidget quilt tutorial page. You will find a video and ideas for embellishing fabric squares. This is a great way to give back to your community and help others."

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is a great idea. It would also work great with some autistic individuals. I will probably make one for my friend's autistic daughter because she would appreciate it. And it will have to be in different shades of purple since that is her favorite color. Thank you for the pattern.

What a great idea although I am thinking of making one in the style of a quiet book for a little person I know. I really like the notion of combining fun learning with a practical item that also serves another purpose. There are lovely fabrics in my stash that will be perfect for this project so all I have to do is decide which fasteners, etc will be best suited to little hands )
