    Such a good idea. I never heard of those before today. I wish I could have made one for my mother. She was always fidgeting with the edge of her sweater or blouse.

    What a wonderful idea. I'm sure if she could tell you she would say she loves it.

    That fidget quilt is a wonderful idea. I volunteer at a nursing home. There would be a few people who would enjoy that.

    Your bed runner is gorgeous. I have that rose fabric. It is so gorgeous.

    There has been a few postings on the board about these quilt, yes a great idea to keep their hands occupied. Just small quilts with things to keep them busy, like a zipper,a pocket with buttons on a string, flaps to open and different fabrics to feel. She is way to young to be lost in Alzheimer's disease.
