Denyse Schmidt Quilts - The Proverbial Quilt


Add to Cart

The Proverbial Quilt is inspired by early "talking" quilts. Denyse's version is an amalgamation of proverbs and fortunes from cookies. We've included the entire alphabet so you can customize, personalize, editorialize, or memorialize. You can even (if you must) dispense advice. And they can sleep on it. Pattern includes: easy-to-use instructions, patterns, and measurements to create your own Proverbial quilt in baby, twin, queen, or king size, and the Proverbial pillow sham.
