I made this for my mom's coworkers mom who is in the nursing home with dementia.  My mom said she loves to sit and play with it.  I heard her therapy nurse just loves it.  I made one for my grandmother months ago but she doesn't like it, she would rather hold your hand  Smiley

I love all of these fabrics.  I bought them all at either thrift stores or garage sales, with this purpose in mind.  The little fabric flowers are from a project I did years ago when I was bow-making.  The jean pocket is from a pair of thrift store kids jeans that I bought because I liked the pockets, though I wasn't sure what I was going to use them for lol.  The zipper was me practicing those tabs on the ends.  And and I have a huge container full of random buttons that I bought long before I learned to sew, so I thought it would be great to use them as a sensory item.  The big heart button kind of runs on the track of the strap I made on the block, similar to the wooden beads.

My mom is urging me to make more of these....cause you know...with three teenagers, a full time job, a little vinyl side-hussle in my "spare time" and other little random projects people have me do, like memory quilts, I have all of the time in the world lolol  Grin

I love it. I am always wanting to try out neat little ideas I come across but haven't anything to do with the end product most of the time. This sort of project would be perfect. Thanks for sharing your awesome fidget quilt Smiley.

I love this!  Thank you for sharing.  I know some people who work and reside in memory care units, so I am going to keep this in mind and hope I get some time soon!
