The first quilt pictured was made for my aunt using her favorite family photos, I made two of these quilts so she always had one avail be when her special "blanket" was being washed in the assisted living facility. The second quilt pictures was my very first quilt, I added photos and more "Fidget" material when I saw how much she liked it. She loved talking about the photos and I especially liked that people would talk to her in the care facility she was living in. And, yes, the quilts are washable, even in a care facility.

The next quilt pictured was made for a Gold Star Mom to Honor the Memory of Her Son. I have made many Remembering Quilts filled with photos that are too personal to share. This quilt is posted here because Terry Hardin wants to share her son's story.

Quilts are made using 100% preached quality cotton fabrics, Warm & Natural batting, Quilter’s flannel backing so it does not slide off the lap, and 100% cotton EQ fabric sheets with permanent ink. Quilts are washable.

In addition to the photos, it may be advantageous to incorporate within the non-photo area the therapeutic aspects of a "fidget quilt." A fidget quilt is particularly useful for Alzheimer's patients who exhibit greater nervous tension in their hands. The quilt can be adorned with a variety of buttons and textured cotton chenille and faux fur fabric to provide hours of tactile sensory stimulation while adding the natural comfort that comes from a good quality flannel backing.

================================================
(Q) How should you send the photos to me?
================================================

1) Photos can be emailed in JPG format
2) Photos can be copied onto a disc or flash drive and mailed.
3) Photos can be downloaded from Facebook, Shutterfly, etc.
4) Photos can be mailed. Place the photographs in envelopes taking care to protect them.
Write "DO NOT BEND, Photographs Inside" on the outside of the shipping container.
It is always best to use a reputable carrier that can track their shipments, such as FedEx, UPS, DHL, and/or USPS Certified Mail. That will enable you to keep track of where your photos are at any given time.
I am not responsible for lost or stolen photographs enroute to or from my workroom, it is best if you send a copy of each photo, not the original photo.
