Les Fleurs Quilt: A wholecloth children’s quilt

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

Rainbow Baby Quilts

By Casey Corey

Baby with Rainbow Quilt

A client custom ordered a whole cloth modern baby quilt for each of her girls to take to pre-school. She wanted one side to be “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and the other side to be “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.” For her girly girl, we went with pink. And for the more wild sister: purple.

For “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, we used a rainbow themed fabric. The pink rainbows have gold (of course) and mini repeating rainbows, while the purple rainbows are much larger.   And “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” uses the same celestial fabric for each quilt, one in pink and the other in grey.

Both quilts were hand bound with a coordinating striped fabric.

And of course, we had to use a diamond pattern to quilt these 40” x 45” quilts together. We naturally used pink and purple cotton thread, respectively.

Starting pre-school can be scary and intimidating. Hopefully these soft, sweet rainbow and star quilts bring a little comfort in those first few days. We can’t wait to see the girls snuggling with their handmade baby quilts. 

Custom orders are open. Please send an email to to create yours.
