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.
