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.

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

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.

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!
