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)!

Honey Bear Quilt

Honey Bear Quilt

Our original Modern Flying Geese quilt: this quilt design was something I just couldn’t get out of my head.  I had these honey bears on the shelf and I knew they were perfect to bring a sweet babe some cuddles and security.  Once the quilt design and fabric were decided, the color way came together very quickly: neutrals, yellows, oranges, and red.

The background cream on this quilt is a gorgeous linen. The linen varies the texture and adds such softness to white, yellow, orange, and red cottons.

The binding on this quilt is a really fun orange with specks of gold and orange.  It is, of course, hand stitched for a smooth finish.

But the star of the show? The honey bears.  They really put this quilt together- the perfect nap time quilt that brings your child comfort and safety.  This quilt is the toddler size: 40” x 50”.  Its big enough to grow with your babe, but not too big.

Kids love routine and knowing what to expect.  When you’re able to provide them with the same quilt at every nap, they associate that quilt with a sense of peace and security.  The quilt eventually signals quiet, rest, and sweet dreams.  Or maybe it becomes the perfect quilt for building a fort to house all your babe’s baby dolls.  But that’s the magic of childhood, isn’t? It’s all up for grabs. 

The modern flying geese quilt is available in both the baby (40” x 40”) and toddler (40” x 50”) sizes at Casey Sheila Quilts.  The color scheme and fabrics are completely customizable.  We love to design quilts to match your babe’s lullaby, favorite bed time story, or nursery.  Send an email to casey@caseysheilaquilts.com.  We can’t wait to work with you.
