Lovely comments

  1. Love your shop! just came over from Tatertots & Jello. I love the hard candy quilt it's great. Do you do custom orders ?

  2. Wow, your stuff is so CUTE!! I fell in love with the Hot Chocolate Quilt. Man I can't wait for another cousin to have a baby!!! Should be soon!!! 🙂

  3. Forgive me if I did this twice; didn't get the proper confirmation on the first go 'round.
    I am so happy to have found your blog. That Hard Candy Quilt is magnificent!

  4. Very cute but your child's reaction should be a give away that these buttons should be big enough to pass the choke hazard test especially if the quilt will be given to a wee one.

  5. Good news! I'm sure your buttons are put on much more tightly than all the Chinese-sewn buttons that are on all the many many many children's clothes which place buttons right up next to wee one's mouths. It is a gorgeous blanket. Completely appropriate for a baby. Beautifully done.

  6. I wouldn’t allow this near my kid unsupervised. Buttons are a very large choking hazard, and I don’t want anyone’s kid to die because of this.

    I hope that whoever got it cut all the buttons off before using it for bedding.

    • This is a very old post and after the giveaway I decided to send out a different quilt and discontinue the button quilt. But it’s still fun to look at!

  7. I love the button comforter, beautiful, unique, however, I would NEVER give it to a baby no matter how well the buttons are sewn on. I one made a doll with button eyes that were sewn on with carpet thread very well; guess what the little one picked at them till they came off. Now I always use felt or other heavy fabric.

  8. I simply love this quilt. Although I’m sad that it would be a choking hazard for little ones and you had to discontinue it, I think it would still make a lovely bedspread for someone a little older (ehm, me). Thanks for sharing! :o)

  9. Hi there, I am trying to make a beatrix potter quilt, and I had a complete different idea in mind until I seen this quilt! Very neat! I was wondering if you would mind sharing how to make puffs? Is it a complicated thing to do? I’ve been trying to look it up online, but your puffs look different from theres. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you so much!

  10. Heidi- it’s really to bad you had to stop making the quilt. I’m going to try one and use 2″ buttons and see how they work. You have absolutely amazing designs!

  11. Just ran across your pretty, puffy baby quilt and it reminded me of a similar one that my mother made for my daughter when she was a teenager. She did not make a puffy quilt but she made hers a comforter, like the ones that had to be tied. Instead of tying, she used buttons, and these buttons came from 6 generations of women in our family – all the way back to my great, great grandmother to my daughter who is now going to be 40. It is one of her biggest treasures that mom made for her. Thanks for letting me remember for a moment and then let me ramble.
