Rebecca Atwood has always loved quilts and their sense of history. Growing up, there was a crazy quilt hanging next to her parent’s dining room table that was from her mom’s side of the family, and she was fascinated with it and its different triangular fabrics. Her mom also made her own quilts for Rebecca and her sisters with big squares in happy colors. Needless to say, she’s always wanted to make her own collection of quilts. These pretty pastel quilts take their inspiration from Rebecca’s personal experiences, and each one is a truly individual piece, hand-sewn in Brooklyn — one of a kind, modern day heirlooms, handmade and compiled from various pieces of fabric from Rebecca’s studio. In the spirit of ‘repurposing’, she wanted to find a way to use the leftover fabric from production of her other collections, so they wouldn’t go to waste, and ultimately create a handmade, one-of-a-kind heirloom with a unique sense of quirkiness. whether they cover your bed, hang on the wall, or even draped over the back of your sofa, rebecca’s quilts will enhance any space.

  1. Quilts are great. My grandma made me a couple from scraps of dresses that she also made me when I was little. Those quilts are a trip right back to being five years old and getting a hug from her.

  2. these are beautiful. They take me back to a lovely little house in the mountains, fire place and a massive cup of raspberry tea. Thank you for this post! x
