Matching Quilts for Siblings

Becky recently completed a lovely set of matching organic cotton quilts for a new baby girl and her 3 year-old big brother.

Custom Koi Lily Pad Organic Baby Quilt by Organic Quilt Company

The baby quilt features a lovely organic print called Eiko’s Pond by Birch Fabrics with colourful koi fish and bright green lily pads on a pewter grey background. Becky used an organic solid green for the border and binding and natural unbleached organic flannel for the backing.

Custom Organic Toddler Quilt by Organic Quilt Company

The toddler quilt is twin size and features a wider green border and the addition of a slim organic cotton aqua-coloured border. Both quilts have a meandering stitch pattern in the middle and straight-line quilting on the borders.

Our Toddler Bibs Are Back

Our Toddler Bibs haven’t been available in our Etsy shop for a while now, but we’ve noticed that they are increasingly popular with our retailers, so we’ve decided to make some room for them!

They are styled similarly to our drooly bibs, but with an adjustable hook and loop closure instead of a snap, and some extra stitching across the front.

While we haven’t made samples in all our available fabrics, we will stitch them up in any fabric in stock upon request.

These bibs do a great job of keeping clothes clean and dry when little ones are just starting to eat solids, and they last and last. I have a few that I used for my littlest one and, though she is 5 now, she still wears them when she’s eating spaghetti!

Happy Friday to you.

Westwood Fabrics Have Arrived

Happy New Year! We have an adorable new collection of fabrics from organic fabric design house Monluna to start 2015 with some fresh cuteness.

We have stitched up the fabrics into blankets, burp cloths, bibs and hats, and these are available in our Etsy shop now. We’ll have them listed on our Canadian site by early next week.

I love these trees! All our fabrics are available for custom orders, of course. Happy Friday to you. Enjoy the first weekend of 2015.

Another Sweet Patchwork Name Quilt

Custom Organic Cotton Patchwork Quilt

This beauty of a Patchwork Name Quilt  was a present to a little girl on her first birthday from her parents. It includes her lovely first name and birth day.

It is a throw size quilt that she can treasure for a lifetime!

Cozy Custom Patchwork Quilt by Organic Quilt Company

The last two name quilts that Becky stitched are so beautiful that I’m feeling inspired. I’ve decided my next quilt project will be a patchwork quilt for me. I’ve been planning to paint our bedroom grey for a while and I’d love a cozy patchwork quilt for our bed in shades of grey with a touch of blue (my husband’s favourite colour.)

I’ll keep you posted.

Meanwhile Happy Friday and Happy Holidays to you.

Custom Woodland Celebration Variation in Aqua and Green

Woodland Celebration Quilt in Minty Green

Becky’s Woodland Celebration Quilt has been made in almost as many variations as the Dot Quilt, and every one turns out just wonderfully!

Little snapshots of woodland and farm creatures are interspersed with simply patterned and solid prints for fun pops of colour.

More Beautiful Dots

Custom Crib Size Dot Quilt

Continuing with our “Year of the Dot Quilt” theme, this lovely custom quilt was made to welcome an October baby.

Our client supplied the fabric for most of the dots and Becky added a few dots in coordinating colours from our organic cotton supplies.

Custom Organic Baby Quilt with Dots

The client’s fabrics in blues, yellows and white, are sweet and have special meaning to the new parents as they were used to make napkins for their wedding.

I love it when fabric with a story is added to a quilt. It makes tangible the connections that bind us to our loved ones, and it seems to me that such a special quilt will keep those who snuggle under it especially warm and cozy!

Happy Friday to you. I hope you are spending time with the loved ones in your life this weekend.

Flowery Baby Name Quilt

Floral organic whole cloth baby quilt by Organic Quilt Company

Becky made this simple and sweet whole cloth quilt this past summer for a September baby.

The crib quilt is backed with our warm and soft organic cotton flannel.

Hand appliquéd name on whole cloth baby quilt by Organic Quilt Company

Every letter is a different colour, which adds a touch of fun to the quilt.

I love the aqua binding on this floral quilt as it keeps it from being super girly. Not that there’s anything wrong with super girly!

Happy Friday to you.

Charley Harper Dot Quilt à la King

I think Becky will always remember 2014 as the “Year of the Dot Quilt.” She has made several of them this year. This big beauty is for a king size bed and is currently in transit to its happy owner.

It has an organic cotton sateen top with organic pewter flannel backing and border. The dots are made mostly from the Charley Harper collection from Birch Fabrics.

Becky hand-stitched a circle outline around each dot in grey thread and  all around the inside edge of the sateen front as well.

Happy Friday to you.

Point Blanket Quilt in Blue

This handsome queen sized quilt was made for a boy’s room. It’s a variation on our Point Blanket Quilt, using organic fabrics.

The threads used for quilting over the stripes are colour-matched to the stripes.

This picture shows how the different thread colours add subtle interest to the reverse side of the quilt.

Sometimes simple is beautiful.

Have a simply beautiful weekend.
