Last month I received an e-mail from Carol Y. in Virginia asking me if I would like a box of scraps that she had accumulated over the years. Now, I have absolutely no business acquiring one more scrid of fabric, but she was so nice, how could I say no? (wink!!). And what a box it was - full to the brim!
We got an “urgent need” notice from our local hospital for “fidget” quilts for the Alzheimer’s unit. I grabbed a few pieces from my “keepers” pile and made this little piece.
The little Matryoska owl fabric was so cute. I stuffed this one and I have enough to make several more.
The pretty pansy fabric surrounds an elastic so they can pull it back and forth. These are fun to make and as long as things are safely secured to the piece it is really “anything goes”. I hope to make a few more this weekend.
what a useful gift!ReplyDelete
What fun you are! You are always up to something special for other people. I'm in awe of your generosity.ReplyDelete
How nice of Carol and you.
Fantastic! Way to pay it forward.ReplyDelete
What a great idea! Colorful and practical.ReplyDelete
Very clever fidget quilt. I have never been asked to make such a thing, but this reminds me of making "Quiet Book" pages for a granddaughter to take to church. :)ReplyDelete
What a great idea to use some of Carol's scraps for fidget quilts! Sounds like you and your grandson had a fun time sorting through them all. I recognize that red/white background fabric. I think I still have some :)ReplyDelete
Quilters are the best and so generous! The fidget quilt is perfect! I had no idea that was something that they needed/used. Blessings to you sweet friend.ReplyDelete
