Fidget Quilt

A guilty group I meet with suggested we all make a Fidget Quilt for our local Alzheimer's Society, the idea is this gives the individual something to do with their hands as they become fidgety and this is soothing for them. It's all about texture and one must keep in mind that these articles must be able to withstand hot water as they'll be washed frequently.  Precise piecing and stitching isn't necessary so it makes it a relaxed project also for the sewer.

I researched on the internet what should and shouldn't be on them so there is a ton of information out there and I hope that this will be used lots.  I wished there wasn't even a need for this but that's not true so let's help where we can.
