The Weighted Lap Quilt is a practical tool for managing autism, and the pattern from Sunshine Linus provides four variations to choose from. The quilt top should use serviceable fabrics that can withstand frequent laundering, and simple square or rectangle patterns work best. Fabric sources such as domestic curtains, tablecloths, and dressmaking remnants, including polycottons, can be used. It’s important to ensure the outer border is on the straight of grain to provide stability. While the lap quilt doesn’t have to be ugly, it’s essential to prioritize functionality over aesthetics.
