33" x 35.5"
This fidget quilt is made with the intent of keeping a child interested in it during Meeting for Worship. My goal was to have lots of things to explore in a quiet way. The large pocket will hold a small stuffed animal, the back pocket a cardboard book, the velvet pocket is lined with satin. All of the pockets are recycled clothes of mine or friends. There are also lots of textures to touch and pictures of things a child might recognize. No, I do not ever expect a child to know 'Buster'. However, a child knows a dog, Easter eggs, flowers, frogs, hearts, and many of the farm animals. Hopefully busy fingers will enjoy touching and exploring.

This also has some satin to touch, polka dots and a rooster to enjoy. The Velcro fastener replaces the original button.
I stuffed and stitched around it before the whole thing was quilted. Hard to see, but it is raised about one quarter of an inch above the rest of the animals. Something to touch as well as enjoy visually.
Another stuffed and quilted animal. The grosgrain ribbon, satin, and fringe all add interesting textures to keep busy hands exploring.
Satin ribbon, corduroy, fringe, grosgrain ribbon, checkered trim and LOTS of fancy stitches are all employed to keep a child's attention.
