They say don’t blink or your children will be grown. I never thought much about the saying until now, but now… NOW it’s as if I can feel it. Each day they grow older and that only means gray hairs, wrinkles, and what’s left? Memories. I don’t know what exactly it is these days, but my heart is craving more heirloom quality for my boys so I can cherish their *things* for generations to come. I want to be able to open a box filled with memories from their childhood I will hold on for years. To one day, maybe, even hopefully regift those *things* both they and I treasured.
This leads me to the boys first heirloom quilt from Petal and Branch. I wanted something unique. Something we that would speak to us, and that my boys would be drawn to. One thing I absolutely loved about Petal and Branch is that these quilts contain just two materials: cotton and linen.
I will say, we did start with ordering a set a swatches so the boys too could decide what they loved with colors and feel 🙂
We picked a canvas quilt in Black Forest Blue by Rifle Paper Co. I loved the canvas material for a little thicker and stronger feel with two rough and tough boys to roll around on them!
Thank you all for stopping by! I hope you fell in love with Petal and Branch just as I did, and I hope you have a wonderful day!
