To date this year, 37 custom vintage chenille quilts have been ordered from my shop. My customers are very happy with their purchases. Check out my feedback:

At SurelyChenille, customer service, creativity, and quality are paramount. If you're looking for the most unique and impressive grandma gifts, you have reached the right place. Babies love my vintage chenille quilts and so do their Moms. In addition to that, your daughter or daughter-in-law will adore you. I love to create chenille baby quilts and other goodies out of vintage (as well as new) textiles. I pride myself on quality workmanship, creativity, and communication.

I am often complemented on the symmetry and balance in my designs. It's largely due to the cutting of the squares. My squares are "fussy cut" as much as possible. In layman's terms, quilt squares are cut retaining as much of the full design as possible. It is more costly to fussy cut rather than random cut quilt squares, but the design is more appealing.

I don't publish a litany of policies and rules. The philosophy that guides the selling of my handmade items is primarily customer focused, as I believe that in addition to creating a top quality product, excellent customer service is just as crucial to success. Read below to see what I mean.

When you order a custom quilt from me, it becomes a collaborative venture. We design the quilt in concert with each other's ideas. Many beautiful quilt creations have come out of this collaborative effort. I work closely with my customers to ensure that we are on the same page and then the fun begins!

No custom quilt is ever sewn without final approval from the customer. Isn't that how it should be? To me, the beauty of handmade lies in the freedom to create items that are unique and one of a kind, but where the customer has had a part in the design.

Please convo me if you see a quilt or anything else that inspires you. Please browse freely and contact me if I can answer any questions or clarify anything. My quilts can be made in other sizes to meet different needs. I also do baby quilts, doll quilt sets, lap blankets, grown up throws and coverlets.

NOTE ON SHIPPING*
With shipping costs having increased, I now bill shipping separately from the cost of the actual quilt. Shipping is NOT free even though it is posted as zero. I calculate the shipping once the quilt is packaged and weighed, and I only charge the actual shipping cost. International orders will be shipped USPS Priority International as it includes $200.00 insurance and First Class International does not.

My offerings also include pillows fashioned using vintage chenille. I love anything beachy, so I design and create "Shabby Seashore" sea creatures such as sea horses, starfish, and angel fish. Other pillows include hearts, that are so adorable in any feminine space. Patchwork pillows in oblongs or squares make a nice decorative addition to a quilt order but are not for use by babies.

Vintage chenille fabrics and quilt squares are for sale in my shop as well, Some of my chenille fabrics are hand dyed using Dharma Procion Fiber reactive dyes that create a color that does not bleed or fade over time. All hand dyed fabrics are washed in warm soapy water after the dye process is finished. Hand dyed fabrics should not be laundered with any Oxy products or chlorine bleach.

Please convo me if you see a quilt or anything else that inspires you, but you prefer a different size, color, design, etc. I do take special orders. To see what others have thought of my work follow this link to see my feedback from many happy customers.

About

I fell in love with vintage chenille and it was a marriage made in heaven...

I like Etsy because there is a nice sense of community amongst sellers as well as customers. I have enjoyed watching my shop grow and establishing a bit of a following. I am grateful for all of my customers and consider myself very fortunate to have found a place on Etsy.
