Gender Neutral Baby Quilt: Honey Bear

Gender Neutral Baby Quilt: Honey Bear

I got to make an Ombré Quilt recently in the red, yellow, and white color way. It’s honestly one of my favorites. The colors are happy and warm. They remind me of the warm sunshine on a fun day at the park with kids.

I used a very soft, cream for the background color to balance out the rich, warm colors. I love how these colors play together.

I used a deep orange with fun, metallic sparkles to bind the quilt together. It brings together the colors on the front with the pops of orange and red on the back. Because of course the back has the classic honey bear fabric.

I love this quilt for a Winnie the Pooh themed nursery. It could work for either a girl or boy’s room. I love picturing reading about the adventures of Pooh, Piglet, Christopher Robin, and the rest of the gang snuggled up under this quilt or under a quilt fort. Or maybe your toddler is running around using the quilt as a super hero cape while you read one of the classic short stories. Building memories with warmth and happiness. It is a privilege that a Casey Sheila Quilts gets to be part of these forever moments. I never take that for granted when creating a quilt.

I think this modern baby quilt would look amazing in a purple color way as well. I just so happen to have purple honey bear fabric to match for the back. Let me know if you’re my person for that by emailing me: casey@caseysheilaquilts.com. Likewise, also email me if you have any other color way in mind (there are so many possibilities with the Ombré Quilt)!

Gender Neutral Rainbow Baby Quilt

Gender Neutral Rainbow Baby Quilt

Making custom, modern baby quilts for you and your families is such a special part of this job. When I get a request for a custom quilt, I ask a lot of questions to find out more about the quilt’s home. I was to know the nursery theme, baby’s gender, the family, and how you want to feel when you look at this quilt.  

I want my custom quilts to create a sense of comfort and warmth. In the very chaotic days of having small children, the quilt should give you reason to pause. When you pull the quilt fresh out of the dryer and it’s still warm to the touch, you’ll pull it close to you and remember all of the memories that baby is forming with the quilt and all the reasons behind the design and fabric choices in that quilt.

This gender neutral rainbow baby quilt is no different. I was asked to design this quilt as a gift for a momma having her second baby, but as you can guess- it was not just her second pregnancy. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, early pregnancy loss happens in about 10% of known pregnancies. (Myself, included). I could not have been more touched to create a quilt for her and her family. Something to celebrate the joyous news of her rainbow baby, but also to honor and hold space for the prior pregnancies.

We decided very quickly on the Raindance Quilt for the design. We wanted to use lots of saturated colors. It was so fun to find gender neutral colors that felt bold and warm. Obviously the back needed to be filled with happy, sweet rainbows.

I hand stitched a coordinating fabric for the binding. The dots remind me of confetti and parties- another memory that would give me a reason to smile. Finally, I added a few pops of gold in the corners.

I hope this quilt brings joy and peace every time the momma grabs it from the dryer. Wishing her, and really, all you mommas, the very best.
