Some months back I posted a request for textured 5 inch squares for my nephew's therapy quilt. My nephew has autism and I was requested to make a quilt for him. What is different about this quilt is it has "channels" sewn into it so that we can increase the weight of the quilt. For his age, his quilt had to weigh 10 lbs. We accomplished this by tearing thermal blankets and placing them in the channels. Then the channels were closed with industrial strength velcro. His mom can remove the weight and wash the quilt anytime that she needs.
I got the pattern from Project Linus for Autism quilt. It works very well and now my nephew can sleep at night. It was a godsend.
Thank you, everyone, who sent me fuzzy, crinkly, goofy and happy squares. It helped make this quilt a success.
Can you see your fabric?
