News: Quilted Pillow Cover

Wild Things Collection

By Casey Corey

Wild Things Collection

“And now," cried Max, "let the wild rumpus start!”

Our first book-inspired line, the Wild Things, is here! Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are is full of adventure, imagination, mischief, frustrating parenting moments, love, and warmth. The Wild Things Collection includes a handmade bib set, three modern baby quilt designs, and coordinating quilted pillow covers. Each design in this collection includes a heavy focus on gold- the crowned king deserves no less. 

Baby bibs

 

The bib set includes the classic colors associated with the book: gold (of course), white, and black. The colors and patterns have a strong, powerful energy. The set includes three bibs. They are each incredibly soft- soft enough even for our sensitive skin babes. They are available in both the bandana and long bib forms with either Fleece or French Terry Cloth backing. And of course, they are machine washable so they will last for years to come. Most certainly longer than Max’s adventure to rumpus with the wild things. 

Modern baby quilt on water

Meet “Wild Rumpus.” The first quilt and quilted pillow cover design in this collection. This design was inspired by the nighttime skies that Max sails and leads his rumpus through. The back is a gorgeous navy blue and gold stripe fabric. The horizontal straight line quilting creates a water-inspired texture running throughout this soft fabric. Perfect to lay across you and your baby (toddlers, especially) as you read your copy of Where the Wild Things Are. Oh yeah, did we mention yet that each quilt purchased from this collection comes with a new copy of the book?

Pink baby quilt on a tree

Next in line is: “Mischief of One Kind and Another.” It’s interesting that the colors usually associated with this book are gold, white, and black because there are so many pinks and yellows throughout. We took the pink and yellow from Max’s sailboat and brought it to a quilted form. The equilateral triangles represent the sailboat. The mix of light and darker pinks are the ocean waves crashing onto each other. The vertically stitched quilted lines and vertical lines of pinks and yellows on the back of the quilt evoke of sense of empowerment and confidence. Traits we often try to instill in our next generation.  

Green baby quilt

And finally: Max himself: “King of All Wild Things.” The forest greens of the vines hanging from Max’s ceiling and walls meets the cream and white equilateral triangles taken from Max’s crown. And of course, there’s fabric speckled with gold. The back of this quilt is a luscious green with metallic gold running up and down just like the vines and trees. And the quilt is wrapped up with a hand stitched binding filled with white and gold. 

Wild Things Collection Quilts and Pillows

Each quilt design is available in either the baby (40” x 40”) or toddler (40” x 50”) size. The quilted pillow covers are also available in either an 18” by 18” or 20” x 20” square. Custom square sizes are possible, just send an inquiry to casey@caseysheilaquilts.com. Lastly, this is a limited edition collection so there is a finite number of each buttery soft product. But, if you’ve had your heart set on something and it sells out, please send an inquiry to casey@caseysheilaquilts.com. As always, these items are made-to-order with love and attention to every detail. 

“And Max the king of all wild things was lonely and wanted to be where someone loved him best of all.”

Happy reading snuggling. xoxo.
