Announcement   Every quilt in the shop is made ready to ship!

My goal with each fidget quilt is to provide an engaging exploration of touch and an enjoyable visual experience.

As a caregiver it's hard to believe anything can keep your loved one busy and calm, but it's true! The fabric prints can evoke fond memories, the activities keep restless minds and fingers busy, and the various soft and fuzzy fabrics, ribbons and fringe are soothing. Each quilt is made with genuine love and attention to detail.

Hi Debra, I just wanted to thank you SOOOO MUCH for the quilt. We gave it to my Grandma the other day. She absolutely loved it and even with her vascular dementia she was able to identify that it was made specifically for her. The bobbins that you put on were a big hit along with the names of her great grandchildren. As my mom was explaining all of the different squares to her, she looked down at my Grandma's hands and she was already begin to "fidget" with one of the items that you put on. Thank you again for ordering the Toronto Blue Jay fabric - it put a huge smile on her face. You definitely incorporated my Grandma's past - sewing, baking and her beloved Toronto Blue Jays. You went above and beyond the expectations that we had! Thanks again, Vicki

About

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

I am honored to be a part of your journey.

A recent sweet story from a customer:

"Hi, I was cleaning out emails and came across this purchase from last year. I thought you might like to know how well loved your fidget blanket was.

I purchased this because my father, who was wheelchair bound and suffering from Alzheimer’s, used to pick at his hands. He would give himself bruises and cuts and sores from his nails. We could not get him to stop and it was heartbreaking to look at his hands. Once I gave him this blanket, he would pick at that instead.

Thank you for making my dad’s last year
better."

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.
