A Custom-Made Quilt

I have a new found love, quilts! They are beautiful, and if they are done well, they are lovely to pass down through generations.

I don't have the talent or patience to make one but luckily I came across a quilter that does, Jen of Iron Violet Designs. I sent her a picture of what I had in mind and to town she went.

We discussed fabrics over e-mails and telephone calls. We chose a charm pack called Lovely by Sandy Gervais which I purchased at Sanourra's Fabric Love on Etsy. I purchased the charm packs separately from the rosette pillows but they go together perfectly. 

Jen came up with the idea of using the buttons. It worked out great because I just so happen to had purchased some vintage buttons a while back from Rustic Cottage that I had been saving for something special. This was definitely something special.

The minute it arrived in the mail, Sun Kissed Boys #2 snuggled up with it and his Lego Club Magazine.

Jen will be posting the pattern in her blog soon. If quilting is not your thing, Jen also makes them to order like she did mine. You can find her contact information here.

I love the simple elegance of this quilt. Thanks again, Jen!

Oh I love it!!! I loved that quilt of Ashley Ann's way back when I read that post.

Thank you for letting me see how you used the vintage buttons from my shop. I love it when my customer's do that ;)

God bless you!
