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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We can’t wait to work with you.
