Jewelweeds Maple Seed Pod Quilt
If you're searching for an utterly unique, heirloom quality gift for some lucky little one, I think you can pretty much stop. Because almost nothing is lovelier than this maple seed pod baby quilt by Jewelweeds Green Design. As the name suggests all Jewelweed's creations are handcrafted with sustainable or recycled fabrics, so they're gentle on the planet as well as baby. This quilt features a handquilted, undyed natural linen front, natural wool batting, as well as organic cotton back and binding. But what makes it truly special is the gentle cascade of block printed maple seeds, a perfect symbol for new life. As Brooklynite Julia White (the creator behind Jewelweeds) says herself, it's a perfect combination of "style and sustainability." I think it would look just beautiful draped over a crib or hanging on the wall of virtually any nursery.
