Thank you to our friends at STITCHED for providing a custom quilt for our review.
Do you have a family motto? Choosing a simple phrase that defines your family values, goals, and daily mission can be a quick and easy way of reminding your kids of an entire thought process in just a few words. As the new year approached, I was feeling like we needed a new one. A strong one. One that could help us remember what our true family values are in the face of a year that promises to be challenging and confusing, especially for the smallest of us.
It didn’t take long for me to decide on the phrase that would define our year and beyond.
Plant a seed and watch it grow.
For us, this simple phrase encompasses all kinds of different ways that small actions can turn into bigger, positive results. My kids are familiar with the seed idea because they’ve been gardening since they could walk. So, we had a long talk about how planting seeds of kindness can be fruitful just like the seeds we plant outside. One kind act can turn into many, and that’s what our world needs right now. We can also plant seeds of confidence, good deeds, inspiration and creativity. Just the idea in itself is a seed, don’t you think?
To keep the idea front and center in our home, I looked for some wall art…but then I came across STITCHED, a custom quilt company that can put any saying you want on their beautiful quilts or wall hangings and have them to you within days. Since my kiddos can never resist something snuggly, a soft, comfy quilt was just perfect for us.
My kids are snuggle bugs, so a new blanket is always a good thing. When this one showed up, they fought over it because the underside is soooo soft, then decided it was big enough for the both of them.
I wanted to try to get a good close-up so you can see the quality you’re getting with STITCHED. I hope this does it!
From traditional to thoroughly modern, STITCHED has designs that fit any bedroom, living room, or nursery. They make different sizes of quilts, and wall hangings, too. (I find those especially lovely for nurseries.)
A Custom Quilt for Kids or Adults
This “free spirit” design is one of my absolute favorites – it just reminds me so much of my daughter. The one below it does, too, because as much as her spunk pushes my buttons now, I have no doubt she will move mountains.
My boy, on the other hand, needs a little more reassurance and attention. The rocket quilt above is now bookmarked for his birthday gift, because a message from mom that he could wrap up in is exactly the type of thing he’d love. No matter who you need a gift for, I can assure you – STITCHED has a modern or traditional design to fit, and you can customize almost every detail!
Just look at this totally customizable, machine-washable, 100% pure cotton beauty.
Inspiration on Display
Why not treat your whole family? A gift that lives where your family can see it and draw inspiration from your personalized message or daily reminder is truly a gift for everyone.
Our quilt has become a fixture in our family room, but it’s much more than that. It’s a daily reminder of our family motto and how we really can make a difference with small everyday acts–a reminder we all need now and then. Plus, its sturdy and well-made so I know I’ll be able to pass it down to my kids someday.
