Your lapboards and quilts for residents are fantastic.

Those are so nice. I made one for my mother and she loved it. She really loved to fold things so I also made her some napkins. She worked on those for hours on end. I took her every quilt I made and she thought she made them. I miss her!

These are wonderful and you are wonderful for making them for the patients. They will have something to do with their hands and minds. Great job! Congratulations for figuring out how to make them.

Bless you for making them & same to your DH for his work. Any help for dementia patients
is so appreciated......they are too often forgotten / ignored.
Many of us will someday be in their shoes.JMO

What a great idea of attaching them to a pillow board like that. Thank you for showing all your details, it is very inspiring. The ones I made a few years ago were like a little quilt but had elastic on the backs so the home could put them over the end of the table to hold them in place. Your work is so precise and appealing in colour choices as well.

You have included enough photos and information to allow any of us to try this == THANK YOU!
I have made touch balls for blind children with different textured fabrics on each side of the dodecahedron. You could add corduroy and upholstery scraps, or maybe something from the hardware store, for additional touch stimuli.
