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.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.


Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

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!
