    Post Play Matt Questions

    I am interested in making a enteractive quilt for my grandson, with different objects on it....to see, feel, and explore,but can't decide what kind of products would be washable , like for a paper, wrattle sound, and othertouch and feel pieces,
    I have some cuddle and so forth... Can you gine me some suggestions, to make this a fun little quilt ?

    I've never done one or even seen one...(that's how old I am)..

    BUT,, what about Velcro'ing on some toys or items. Then they could easily be removed for washing..
    making button holes and adding buttons of a large size.. (everything goes into the mouth when babes are little)
    button holes and shoe laces??

    Just what came to my mind when I read your post.

    I have used small pill bottles and put buttons in them, works good, but could be bulky for a quilt. I've seen some baby items lately with short ribbons of different textures sewn around the edges.

    Google " fidget quilts" for some ideas. A lot will depend on the child's age. I am trying to make one for my aunt who has dementia from parkinson.

    Just saw Hula's post. She gave the same suggestion first.

    I love the little soft books, so I thought, maybe, I count make a few things to go on a play Matt quilt. Using appliques and stuffing them and I do like the idea if using ribbon and large buttons too. I had seen a lady a while back, but I don't remember what she used.

    She said these were very good for Attistic children too.
    That they loved the different feels and sounds and colors too.


    I have a car and thought I could put a squeaker in it, like a beep beep....... I have a turtle and a duck and a cat and a dog.......I'm looking to see war elts, hope I have a tractor ....too.....lol.

    There is a quilt pattern out there-sorry I can't remember the name-that has like a twisted piece across the blocks that you can attach toys to. I made a small one for my GS and DD would switch out stroller toys on it for variety. If I can find the pattern I will let you know. another suggestion would be to find a pattern for a busy book and make the pages into quilt blocks instead.


    Playtime by Karie patch is the one I made.Not sensory but fun and easy

    When my "baby" was little a friend made a "quiet book" that was just adorable. I know it had different fabrics for different textures, it had a shoe shape with shoelaces. It was adorable. Since my baby is now 42 I can't remember what all it had. I just googled quiet books and came across the following link. I don't know why you couldn't turn the book pages into blocks for a quilt.
