Fidget Quilt #2

I went to buy some new quilting gloves and blades for my rotary cutter, and despite my intentions to get nothing but what I actually needed, I couldn't resist a few cute buttons.  Seeing all of the fabric, I felt myself weaken, but resisted. No more fabric.  Must use what I have!  That one requirement for these little quilts, I am determined to keep.  At least for a while.

 I've washed this because I like the wrinkly effect of washed quilts
and because I wanted to see how everything held up.

It has been several years since I made even a tiny art quilt,
and it shows, but it shouldn't matter to the recipient.

 The fabric flowers were just in my left-over odd bits.

 The buttons can be buttoned
and unbuttoned
through the loops.
If the beads are a problem, they can easily be cut off.
I took the pics outside
and needed something to illustrate the little pocket.

Hoping the rain and clouds will take a break.
We've had way too much lately,
and I'm tired of rain and overcast skies.

Almost finished with f.q. #3!
And planning #4.

Thanks again, Michelle, for sharing
the idea of these little quilts that
should soothe AD patients and
their restless hands.


  1. Another triumph! Well done!

  2. This one is gorgeous! You've gotten me started--I love the idea!

    1. Yay! Mary, you will probably turn these out faster than I do. Since you do large quilts, these will seem like little bon bons to you.

  3. This is beautiful! and such a wonderful idea. My sweet dad can't keep his hands still.

    1. Thanks, Starr. My father was the same way, hands always moving and usually, as if involved with a specific project. Needlework keeps my hands busy most of the time--restless hands working to comfort restless hands. :)


Good to hear from you!
