• A "Fidgit" quilt is very similar to the famous
    "busy box" that infants have played with.  
    They have fabrics with different textures,
    beads on strings, zippers, and pockets which
    allow the patients to play or "fidgit" with
    them.  They are mostly used in the alzheimer
    wards.  They are smaller, about 20" x 25", and
    patients use them on their laps.

  • At least three nursing homes in the New Bern
    area receive quilts each month.  "Lap Quilts"
    are approximately 40" x 40" and most patients
    leave them on their bed or wrap the quilts
    around their shoulders.
