  1. A quilt brings back memories of grandmothers and old favourite clothing. It's the best thing to use while snuggling with loved ones and sipping hot chocolate. A quilt makes you and your heart warm! I love the @prelovedtoronto quilts!

  4. The Mondrian is not only cozy, warm and screaming après-ski ... it is also honouring perpendicular lines, planes of colours and the development of abstract art!

  5. I am a collector of blankets. As a new mom with a little one this one looks perfect for snuggling up on a cold winter's day. Plus it looks like it will hide any stains my baby throws at it!

  6. First, I love everything Preloved. Unfortunately, I no longer live close to a place where I can buy Preloved, but I still wear at least one Preloved item from my closet once a week. Why do I love the quilt? It reminds me of my Grandmother, who used to make quilts. I wish I would have learned from her when she was still able to teach me.

  12. I think that this quilt embodies and represents what Preloved is all about--comfort, style, uniqueness, memories, creativity--all wrapped up into one lovely quilt! To be nestled up by the fire, all cuddly and toasty, in a beautiful Preloved quilt would be at the top of my Christmas list :)

  13. It's argyle and flannel,
    So lovely and warm,
    I'd love to wrap up in its style.
    Unique are the panels,
    No end to its charm,
    For it I would go the extra mile.

  14. Because it's pure beauty and doesn't steal from the planet.

  16. Yesterday I went down to the lake and I ran into a sad and confused Narwhal. He told me that he had lost his cape - a most magnificent cape - that had been made by a sailor who had used yarn his mermaid girlfriend spun to knit it - and this cape was like no cape anyone had ever seen before. Now, this Narwhal was totally capeless and depressed. He was looking for the cape, but was starting to lose hope.
    It was hard to see such a wonderful creature be so sad about the loss of his beloved gift, so I gave him the blanket that was covering my grandmother - who I was pushing on the boardwalk in her wheelchair. I tied the blanket around his neck, and my grandmother said that he looked ridiculous, and to give her her blanket back. I told her that this sort of thing doesn't happen every day - and that she can spare this poor sea creature one of her blankets.
    The Narwhal swam away without saying thank-you, and my grandmother is still really mad at me for giving her blanket away.

  17. Preloved is all about the love and the Mondrian Quilt is exquisite. A recent move to the Pacific Northwest with all the fireplace romance, cozy eves, and handmade warmth will be complete with this gift. Thank you for all that you do!

  19. I love this quilt because it is made of pieces of the history of those who wore the clothes from which it is made. The person who snuggles underneath it inherits all of that group history which, while not clear to its new owner, can be imagined - making this more than just an ordinary quilt.

  20. Wait, you guys do QUILTS? Preloved just got that much better! Would love to snuggle up in this one and remember the good old days when you had a store in Montreal.

  21. I love it because I have been looking for a quilt that tells a story and I think each piece of fabric used in this does just that. Not to mention that it would look great in my lady lounge where I sit and read stories upon stories.

  22. Well, quilts are awesome because they're supposed to age and last forever...and the fact that they're made with reclaimed and super durable materials makes them even better!

  23. I love the way your designers put all the different textures together. Colors are awesome too. I've been on the hunt for a new quilt, would be great to win. Good luck to all.

  24. I love the thought behind this quilt. It is cool to think about the different pieces and special memories that each individual piece might have been part of.

  25. I have just discovered Preloved through a friend and have only just begun my collection! I have a scarf and my 4 year old little boy loves it! He wants to wear it so much that I actually cut it in half and gave 1/2 to him! To have a quilt for his new big boy bed that he and we can snuggle up in together while reading bedtime stories would be awesome!
    Keep up the great work and Merry Christmas!

  26. I have recently just discovered Preloved through a friend! My collection has only just begun! I have a scarf that my 4 year old little boy loves so much that I have had to cut in half to share with him! What better way to celebrate a new big boy bed than with a beautiful Preloved quilt that he and I can snuggle up in to read bedtime stories.
    Keep up the great work and Merry Christmas!

  29. I just moved back to Canada from a few years away, and have already started to rebuild my Preloved collection! (Bought myself a sweater recently for my birthday that I love.) Unfortunately I don't have all the warm and cozy blankets I used to have for chilly days and nights here - this quilt would be perfect for cuddling in front of the fire in my new home.

  30. It because it is unique, no one else is going to have the same quilt!

  31. I like this quilt because my sister likes this quilt and I would like to give it to her as a gift. I like this quilt, love my sister, and sometimes she gets cold.

  32. I absolutely love this quilt and I would love to gift it to my mother ! Preloved stands for everything I love in fashion, I did a project for my fashion class about Julia, Peter and the wonderful things they are doing to change how people look at the construction and design of clothing. When I found out One Tooth carried their clothing I was ecstatic because their flagship store is quite a ways away from where I live. Keep up the amazing work !

  37. The quilt is unique, fun and quite handsome! Plus, it's cold and you can never have too many warm and cozy quilts on these Canadian winter nights!

  38. I want to diaper my elephant with this - it's so cute!

  39. It's cozy, beautiful and you can share it over and over again when someone comes to visit - snuggle up on the couch with some chocolate and netflix and you're in for the night.

  40. What has a history but is still 'green'... ?
    A good-for-the-environment Preloved Quilt!
    There is no substitute for life experience.
    I LOVE this Preloved quilt because it is a patchwork of stories waiting to make more.

  47. On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me: a gorgeous Preloved quilt, and a roma scarf to wear by the Christmas tree.

    I just bought a scarf a couple of weeks ago as an early Christmas gift :)
