Hi All!

I would like to make a fidget quilt for my aunt with Alzheimer’s. Does anyone have ideas or a pattern source they could share?

Thank you!
Kathy

If you seach 'fidget quilt' on Pinterest, you will get a lot of ideas.... The Nursing Home my Mom is in just requests that all items are attached very securely!  Making a few are on my list of 'to do" 

Please share what you come up with.

I visited pinterest when i was making one for my grandma last year.  Unfortunately, she died shortly after I completed but before I mailed it. 

this is part of it. The head is the top of a soft rattle that didn't survive long The wings are double sided with the bottom of one of my daughter's out-grown onsies sewn into it.  Looks super cute snapped up.  The feet are a couple pieces of a ribbon from a box of fancy chocolates the spouse and kids got me.

I used a bright fabric that had a defined subject that had interested the person, for example for my mother who had been in the music store business I used a fabric I collaged with different instruments and records.  For the guitars, I made taunt yarn strings, for the piano I used fuzzy black fabric for the black keys, for the banjo I used a faux leather fabric for the head and a zipper for fret board; for cymbals I used a button and butthole (the buttonhole had black strips of the sides for the handles and a bronze covered metallic fabric for the cymbal parts).  I used 6 or 7 different laces, fringes, braids etc to frame an inside border and then used raw edge applique for fabric cutouts of records for the outside border.  I also encased some squeakers with thick fabric so that when she pushed on them, they made sounds.
