SENSORY LAP QUILT CHALLENGE 

A “fidget” or “activity” quilt – sensory lap quilt – is described as a small lap quilt that provides sensory and tactile stimulation through the use of fabrics, colours, textures and simple embellishments such as pockets, laces, trims,  appliques, buttons, secured beads, ribbons, braids etc. Mainly for use by dementia patients,  they are also said to be calming, soothing and therapeutic.
