The Touch Quilt Project is an initiative of the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba, sponsored by Manitoba Blue Cross with funding from Manitoba Community Services Council.
The purpose of the Touch Quilt Project is to create a caring community throughout Manitoba that is responsive to the needs of people living with Dementia.
- 36 - 6 inch squares of various different types of fabric, including polar fleece, fun fur, polyester, cotton and cotton blends.
- polyester batting
- one solid piece of fabric for backing
The first thing I did was lay out the squares and test each one for stretch. If the square was stretchy, I used interfacing to stabilize it.
This lap quilt still needs to be sandwiched, quilted and have binding put on.
This is my second kit. Below are photos of the first touch quilt I sewed. I added ribbons around the outside edge and a flannelette binding.
