Les Fleurs Quilt: A wholecloth children’s quilt
By Casey Corey
The Les Fleurs handmade baby bib set has a been a long time favorite of mine. The deep red is so vibrant, full, and luscious. The flowers are happy. The set can be dressed up or down. The perfect fancy set for a wedding or for another day hanging out with momma at home.
Last year, I was asked to create a quilted pillow using these fabrics. We decided on a black zipper with red on the back.
The client loved it and decided her baby girl who was turning ONE needed a matching handmade quilt. I couldn’t agree more.
This handmade wholecloth quilt is a dream. (And hopefully encourages sweet dreaming and snuggling for baby girl who is officially now a toddler).
Just like the pillow, we used the red floral fabric on the front and the solid red fabric on the back. I quilted her up using diagonal lines to create elegant diamonds with an organic, coordinating yellow thread.
I used the yellow speckled fabric to create a bold binding for this modern, custom quilt. The final quilt was about 40” x 45”. The perfect size to take on the go- daycare naps or weekend adventures. But also the perfect size to hang on the crib and keep at home for imaginative play and sweet slumbers.
I’m obsessed and was so happy to create this custom quilt for the client. If you’ve been eyeing a bib set that would make the perfect handmade wholecloth quilt for the little one in your life, please send an email to email@example.com.
