Lovely to be featured in BluePatch’s Marriage a la mode blog post with the suggestion of a bespoke wedding quilt as a really treasured keepsake from the special day
Lisa can stitch you a wedding quilt from your wedding dress or, use fabrics to make a patchwork quilt to commemorate a wedding. Your wedding quilt will be bespoke and distinctly personal.

For something completely different in the way of blankets, you could commission a By Lisa Watson Quilt. It will be a lovely keepsake of the day, and you could even weave in treasured memories.
