When you’ve caught a bit of a bug, you know a quilt is a great ‘cold’ reliever, right? (Get it? cold reliever – ‘cause it keeps you warm. Thank you, thank you, I’ll be here all night…) But seriously, folks, a few custom quilted accessories can go a long way towards making you feel better when you’re achy or sick.
If you are using a regular old hot water bottle or a traditional cold pack for your sprains and pains, a custom fit quilted cover can keep extreme temperatures from delicate skin. Or have Whimzie Quiltz create a heat therapy neck wrap just for you – filled with flaxseed or buckwheat, a few minutes microwaving such wraps can give you hours of warming comfort. And patients undergoing chemotherapy might welcome a long, thin custom quilt known as a ‘comfort hug’ to wrap around their shoulders during sessions or a specially made fabric chemo cap to wear once they’ve lost their hair.
Sniffle, sniffle… Achoo! Got a bery bab code? A quilted cover for your tissue container – especially one in a fun and cheery fabric – can brighten repeated visits to the Kleenex® box when you’re blowing your “node” over and over (and over) again.
