About

All my Alzheimer's fidget quilts are made with love and attention to detail with your loved one in mind.

When I tell people I make fidget quilts, I often get asked, "What is a fidget quilt?" Fidget quilts, also known as fidget blankets, tactile quilts or sensory blankets, can be a soothing solution to the anxiety and restlessness that comes with Alzheimer's, dementia, and other similar conditions. In addition, the fabric prints and textures can evoke fond memories, and the soft fabric and silky ribbons and trims are soothing.
I have learned from you (my customers) that Fidget Quilts are often recommended by Occupational Therapists (OT) , Social Workers and Activity Directors at nursing homes and memory care facilities. Fidget quilts are a calming distraction and give your loved-one "something to do with their hands." One of my customers told me that her mother had developed a "brain infection" and lost much of her fine motor skills. The OT suggested a fidget quilt as part of her recovery.
Fidget quilts are also useful for children with ADHD, sensory integration disorders, Autism, as well as kids that need practice with activities of daily living (such as buttons, zippers, laces etc.). Custom fidget quilts can be made nearly any size, with little textural fabrics or only soft fabrics (such as satin, terry cloth, minky etc.) or many textures (such as lace, ric-rac, and other trims).
You will find many fidget quilt options, prices, and styles in my shop likely to fit any need.

Check back often. I list new quilts each week.

Frequently asked questions

Wholesale availability

We do offer wholesale prices for multiple items. Please contact us for details.

Will this work for my loved one? How do I know which one will be best?

We have seen a great number of people take interest, and find comfort and joy from our quilts.

The best way to decide which quilt will work is to pick something that represents your loved one in some way. Think about their favorite color, sport, activity, hobby, etc. In addition, think about their 'fidget habits' such as folding, pulling threads, rubbing, saving coins, etc.

When in doubt, contact us for suggestions. We have fidgets that address all types of fidgeting. We can add a fidget to an existing quilt or make a Custom quilt especially for your loved one.

Custom quilts incorporate the essence of your loved one's favorite things. We can accommodate just about any subject matter!

Will this be safe for my loved one?

In general, yes! Though all fidgets are triple stitched for security and quality checked prior to shipping, we always recommend having responsible supervision when using the quilt.

If you have concerns about your loved one pulling buttons or beads off or trying to put them, in their mouth, we are happy to remove and replace fidget items thar present a concern. Just ask!

Care instructions

Washing instructions:
Remove unwashable items (if any). All unwashable items are removable. Place the quilt in a knotted pillowcase on a gentle wash cycle. After washing, roll in a dry towel to remove excess water then lay flat to dry.

Can I add a zipper, pocket, stuffed animal, etc.?

Yes! We have an accessory section in which you can add an additional fidget item. Please specify in "notes to seller" which extra fidget you would Iike.
