Type of item: Functional
Cotton twill, denim and quilting fabric
What was your inspiration?
I wanted to make a weighted blanket for the autistic children I work with. I started with the March BOM since the design creates a strong double layer. I used the denim I have stashed for years to make the back both durable and heavy. I did not use any batting and poured poly pellets into each 6" square, making a quilt that weighs about 6 pounds for use by a child of about 60 pounds.
What are you most proud of?
It seems to work.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Research weighted blankets.
