Blankie Quilts Are Here!

By Casey Corey

Blankie Quilts Are Here!

I am so excited to announce that we have a new product! Blankie Quilts are now available! These modern wholecloth quilts are perfect for any age from babies to big kids. They have a modern fabric choice on the front and a coordinating solid color fabric on the back. You may notice that they also match our handmade baby bibs.

A lot of children form some kind of attachment to an object that they use to go to sleep. A lovey, if you will. My lovey was a very well loved blankie that I brought everywhere with me for years. I have so many childhood photos with my blankie in my hand and my thumb in my mouth. While I no longer suck my thumb, I did sadly lose my blankie during a Disney trip. It was a traumatic day and I mourned the loss of my blankie for a long time.

These blankie quilts are largely inspired by own lovey. They are a really versatile quilt that can provide comfort and love to the children in your life for years. They might start off as nursery decor when baby is too young to have blankets in his or her crib, but can be used for years to come.

They are slender, making it easy to fold or roll up bringing with on the road. Perfect for family trips while you’re out making memories.

They wash easily if you plan to send it to daycare or preschool, but also because kids are messy.

The modern fabrics make them all the more cute and lovable.

We currently have six options for the Blankie Quilt: (1) Swanderful; (2) Surfer Girls, (3) Bumble Baby; (4) Swan-derful; (5) Wild Things, and (6) Panda Baby.

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

This quilt may not or may not have inspired a brand new line of quilts soon to be available at Casey Sheila Quilts. Subscribe to the email newsletter to stay in the know!

New Handmade Quilt Collection Coming Soon

By Casey Corey

New Handmade Quilt Collection Coming Soon

 Today, I am giving you some sneak peeks at the new product that’s launching this summer. Sometimes I wonder if I should give early glimpses at the product with my iPhone pictures when there will be really lovely professional photos taken. Then I remember I’m in charge and there are no rules. So, here we are. 

rolled up handmade whole cloth quilt

This modern children’s quilt collection was inspired by a couple of sources. First, I’ve had several requests for custom whole cloth quilts using fabrics from the bib collections. These quilts are easier to visualize- the fabrics are already there to see and can match a bib set if you wanted to give both as a gift to the baby in your life. Even if you’re gifting it to your own baby.

Second, this may not surprise you but I had a security blanket growing up. I brought it with me everywhere. Sucking on my thumb with my blanket hanging from the same hand. I still can’t sleep without a quilt or blanket on top of me even if it is a special kind of hot (think no power post hurricane in the middle of Florida summer hot).

So, I created a quilt that would be easier for a child to carry around with them but would be just as special for the child. It will be about 40” x 45”- the perfect size to bring to daycare or a nap on the go. The perfect size to drape across their little bodies at quiet time. And the perfect size to get a really good burrito roll. 

I’ve probably said too much. Can’t wait to show you more! Make sure you subscribe to our email newsletters to stay in touch. Have a custom handmade quilt in mind of your own? Send an email to Custom orders are currently open!

Casey Sheila Quilts x Olives & Applesauce Baby Bib Set

By Casey Corey

Casey Sheila Quilts x Olives & Applesauce Baby Bib Set

I am pleased to introduce the Cosmos Baby Bib Set to the Casey Sheila Quilts handmade baby bib collection! This collaboration with Olives & Applesauce is a dream come true. Olives & Applesauce just released their new baby and children's carriers. We’ve been long time fans of the carriers from Olives & Applesauce. As a mom of four, the CEO and founder of Olives & Applesauce knows exactly what we need from our baby carriers. In addition to years of personal experience with her own babes, Baxter was a Babywearing educator for years. Her Olympia carriers are available in standard and plus sizes. These structured carriers are soft and breathable. They fit newborns and toddlers. They are easy to put on and adjust. She gets that no one wants to start wrestling with a carrier while baby is screaming to be picked up.

With the upcoming release of her four new carriers, we were excited about the idea of a matching handmade bib set. And thus, the matching Cosmos Baby Bib Set was created. The galaxy print bib in this set was designed by the Olives & Applesauce team and it has just the right kind of cuteness explosion. The pink, purple, and blue colors are stellar, if you catch my drift. I paired her design with a solid purple bib and a purple bib speckled with small dots that evoke an outer space feeling.

The three bibs in this set are available with either an Organic Fleece or Organic Terry Cloth backing. While both options are soft and safe for baby’s skin, the Fleece is softer than the Terry Cloth while the Terry Cloth is more absorbent (think summer beach wear type of material).

This is a limited edition set. Once it’s gone, it’s gone forever so make sure you grab your matching bib set when you’re purchasing your infant carrier at Olives & Applesauce.

Where I Find Inspiration for Baby Bibs: Part 2

By Casey Corey

Where I Find Inspiration for Baby Bibs: Part 2

In the first part of this blog series, I explained that part of my inspiration for baby bib sets was simply falling in love with a modern fabric. 

A bunch of baby bibs on a white table

Once I find a print that I love and that print is on a cotton fabric soft enough to put on a baby, I create a whole set around that print. The set usually includes a matching solid bib and a complementary pattern bib that doesn’t upstage the star of the set. All three bibs work well together so they can be grouped together as a set but of course, they look good independently (because obviously that’s how they’ll be worn).

Pink surfer girl themed baby bibs

Another inspiration behind the handmade baby bib sets is you! When I work on a custom, handmade children’s quilt, the client and I collaborate on the fabrics that will be used in the quilt. I often find myself ordering extra fabric (in case I make a mistake and need extra fabric and… to create a limited edition bib set!).

I mean, when the client asked for the Liberty of London Strawberry Thief fabric in this baby girl quilt- it was obvious we needed coordinating bibs for a limited release.

Flamingo themed baby bib

Other times, I get a special request for a certain theme and all of the stars align so that it makes sense to create limited release set. That’s how the Flamingo Babies Bib Set was created. After I released the Flamingo Babies Bib Set, you all asked the solid color to also be available in blue. Why not? Great idea.

Purple rainbow themed baby bib set

Like all good things, the limited edition sets are just that- limited. They are available in smaller quantities than the rest of the bib sets. So if something catches your eye, don’t snooze. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.

If you have any questions or requests, please reach out to me at I love talking inspiration and customizations. Custom orders for quilts are also open for 2022. Just send me an email at and I’ll walk you through the process.

Books and Bibs: Spring ‘22 Round-Up

By Casey Corey

Five baby bib sets

It’s that time again! A Casey Sheila Quilts books and bibs round up. A few times a year, I like to gather up some of the books we’ve been reading and pair them with one of our handmade baby bib sets. The pairs make a perfect baby shower gift. Or the book ideas might help you break out of a  reading rut with your toddler (we all know toddlers love them some repetition). 

Winnie the Pooh with a honey themed baby bib set

I paired Winnie the Pooh with the Bumble Baby Bib Set. It was an on obvious choice given Pooh’s love for honey. But, this is the first chapter book I’ve started to read with the kids. I’m grateful for a book with more sustenance for me and it brings back so many good feelings. All of the characters in the Hundred Acre Woods are so delightful and I love getting to share it with my kids. Also- they don’t have the attention span for it every night and that’s okay. On those nights, we read some tried and true Sandra Boynton.

The Swander-ful Baby Bib Set got paired with I Am Enough. This book is new to us and I could not love it more. The message is so positive and loving. It feels like giving yourself a good hug.

Blue dinosaur baby bib set with a Childrens book called diggersaurus

The Extin-kin’ Cute Baby Set was paired with Diggersaurs. Alice actually picked out this book for Dylan one day when we were at Target. He’s all about the dinosaur and truck life so I was so touched to see her pick something he would actually love.

Floral baby bib set with the Madeline children’s book

I love me some Madeline with the Petal Baby Bib Set. I couldn’t believe Madeline hadn’t made it to a round up yet. This book brings back all the good nostalgia feelings for me. And it’s all about me, right?

Pink lamb baby bib set with a baby flap book called where’s the ladybug

For the last pairing in this round up, we have the Lamb Chop Baby Bib Set with a baby classic- Where’s the Lady Bug. This book is a basic lift the flap book but both my 4 and 2 year old still love it. Go figure.

I would love to hear some of your bedtime book recommendations! Send them my way to

Spring ‘22 Spit Up Collection

By Casey Corey

Spring ‘22 Spit Up Collection

I have been working on this springtime line up for quite a while now. I am so excited to finally share this collection.

Baby blue dinosaur fabric for baby bib set

I found the beehive fabric about two years ago. I found the lamb, dinosaurs, and flowers about a year ago. They all felt like springtime releases but morning sickness (aka all day sickness) prevented me from getting them ready for a release last year. 

Spring flower fabric for baby bib set

One of the albeit small questions that I debate over and over during release prep is how many products to include in a collection. Creating four handmade baby bib sets while caring for a newborn and two toddlers seemed ambitious but manageable. So, I chose these four modern and adorable sets.

Cream swan fabric for baby bib set

But then I found the swan fabric. Oh the classy, elegant swan fabric. I had to include it! Picking out the solid bib for the swan set was surprisingly exciting, too. I decided on this fabric that’s a little rougher than what I normally use (but still soft enough for baby!) because it gets so deliciously soft the more it’s used.

Baby bib fabrics stacked on top of each other

And that’s how the Casey Sheila Quilts Spring Spit Up Collection came to be! *Baby girl inspired the name of this collection because that girl certainly has an overabundance of spit up.

Bee baby bibs
Lamb baby bibs

As always, each set is available in either the Bandana or Long size. The Long size provides full coverage for this reflux baby of mine.

Petal baby bibs

The bib sets are backed with either Organic Fleece or Organic Terry Cloth. They are both soft, but the fleece is the softer of the two while the terry cloth is the more absorbent of the two.

Dinosaur baby bibs

They come with sturdy snap closures and machine washable (my favorite part).

Swan baby bibs

Where I Find Inspiration for Our Baby Bib Sets

By Casey Corey

Where I Find Inspiration for Our Baby Bib Sets

Casey Sheila Quilts is two years old this month! I started this company in April 2020. The world had just shut down. I kept thinking everything would open back up any day. I had a five month old and a two year old. My husband’s company needed to pivot like so many other businesses during the pandemic. So, I buried my stress in sewing and started selling baby bibs. I launched my first quilt collection in June 2020 and have been growing ever since! 

To celebrate two years of creating thoughtful products for you and your babes, I thought it would be fun to do a series of blog posts reflecting on the inspiration behind the different products. Today, we are taking a closer look at the inspiration behind some our handmade baby bib sets.

When I had my baby shower with Alice, I received a ton of bibs. Most of them were impractical. I felt like Goldilocks. They were too small. They didn’t hold up well in the wash. The prints were too cutesy. They had phrases I didn’t like printed on them. “Daddy’s Girl” always irked me- I’m home taking care of the baby most of the time, she better be a momma’s girl! (Happy to report- she loves us both).

After Alice, I knew what I liked in a bib- something that could easily be thrown in the washer, snaps, and had modern prints. I also loved a good set because if Alice was having a particularly spitty or drooly day, she could wear the whole set and still have them match her outfit. So, we set out to create just that.

In the beginning, I used modern fabrics I loved because if I loved them, I knew other moms would too. The OG bib release are still some of the best sellers.

Now that we offer between 25-30 different sets, I try to use modern fabrics that fill any color schemes that we might be missing. I’m always on the hunt for gender neutral options. And if they’re a beachy or bold color print that I know my fellow South Florida mamas would love, all the better.

I am still drawn to the typical girl color fabrics, but I’ll blame that on just having had another baby girl.

Selling out of a set is bittersweet- I loved those fabrics and it made me so happy to create bibs for all the special babies in your lives. It also means, I can start looking around for another set to fill that void :)
