In my parents' retirement-home there is also a station for Alzheimer-patients. We talked about fidget-blankets for these patients. After that talk I made one, some ladies who live in the home gave me buttons and old keys.
The quilt is small, only 20 x 26 inch. The people should be able to hold the quilt on their lap or on a table.
For the batting I used cotton, the backing is a soft flanell.
This time I sewed the binding on the backing and then by machine to the front. Usually I sew on the front and sew it to the back by hand. But if the patients 'use' the quilt very much, the handsewing might not hold.
