Absolutely Beautiful

I wanted to turn my mom and I’s wedding dresses into something special for my future children. I hated the thought of them sitting under a bed or in a closet not being seen. I first thought maybe a teddy bear as they are so cute, but then I found the quilt idea and loved it. The Patchwork Bear staff walked us through the entire process and did exactly what we wanted. Except…. It’s way more beautiful and special than we could’ve EVER imagined. We are in awe of how beautiful and detailed it is. I cannot wait for the day that I can wrap my precious baby in such a special blanket. Thank you to The Patchwork Bear for creating something so special and beautiful. We will forever be grateful of you all.

Finally, a purpose for 25 year old wedding dress!

I have been moving my preserved wedding dress around on military moves for 25 years! I knew my daughter would not wear my wedding dress. Plus I do not have one creative gene in my body when in comes to sewing projects so what was I going to do with this dress? Thank goodness for The Patchwork Bear! They made a beautiful wedding dress quilt that I have placed in my guest room for an extra throw and should I have grand babies a story behind the quilt! Thank You PW Bear!

Pretty Keepsake

The folks at The Patchwork Bear did a beautiful job transforming my 20+ year old wedding dress, which was never very expensive and was grass and cake stained, into a lovely quilt. I'm so glad I found them! Thanks!

My daughter Rebecca was so overwhelmed when she opened the wedding quilt you made for her. Because of COVID we had to cancel her wedding twice. We decided to have a small ceremony and this quilt will be included Thank you so much for this beautiful keepsake
