I finished my fidget quilt today.  It has two pockets: the one on the lower right corner has a flap with a button inside, the other has the little puppet face.  There is also a zipper, Velcro tab, measuring tape strip, elastic, rickrack, buttons and a fabric ribbon that can be tied into a bow. 
It was fun making this and I am looking forward to doing another.
We are getting yet another thunderstorm.  Hydro has flickered once  but seems to be staying on.  It has been a discouraging summer for holidayers but our garden is doing great.  We had our own potatoes and beets for supper.  Could have also served chicken burgers but am getting a bit tired of chicken.  We picked a couple of tomatoes.  They aren't ripe yet but we love fried green tomatoes.
Hope things are a little drier in your area.  Have a great and safe weekend.

  1. Good for you to make the fidget quilt. It will be a well-used item by someone. Some great things to fidget with!!! Looks like you have used all cottons. Another time you might want to consider different textures as well. Eg. corduroy, burlap, velvet, silky, fleece/minky, embroidery (machine or hand), knitting, etc. Of course, all need to be washable.
