Announcement   Vintage Chenille Baby Quilts Make The Best Baby Shower Gifts!
At SurelyChenille, customer service, creativity, and quality are paramount. The most unique and impressive grandma gifts are for sale here. Babies love my vintage chenille quilts and so do their Moms. In addition to that, your daughter or daughter-in-law will adore you. If you are looking for a more moderately priced baby gift, I offer Baby Blankies, the perfect baby accessory! A Blankie is a security blanket that can also be used as a photo prop or a table topper.

My quilts are not meant to be used to cover newborns or infants in cribs. The American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend covering babies or putting blankets in cribs until the baby is 12 months old. By then they are able to turn front to back and back to front easily. Some pediatricians say it's ok at 6 months to cover a baby in the crib. During infancy, my quilts are useful as playmats, for tummy time, for photo props and for cuddling. They may be used for strollers as well. I have had expectant mothers and grandmothers tell me that the baby nursery is being designed around the quilt. So my quilts serve an aesthetic and practical purpose in the early days, but are not for cribs until the baby is older and more mobile.

I take custom orders for adult sized throws as well as lap quilts. My baby sized quilts have been purchased by many for use as lap quilts. They are just the right size to keep laps and legs cozy and warm.

In the past, I have received requests for table runners made out of vintage chenille fabric. One gal ordered a quilt and a matching table runner for her daughter's baby shower. Table runners have no batting, so they lay flat. The same is true for Blankies.

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.

Custom orders for quilts are ready to ship in 4-6 weeks time. I have 3 beautiful baby quilts that are ready to ship if you are in a time crunch for a baby shower gift.

In 2016, 42 custom vintage chenille quilts were ordered from my shop. Check out some recent reviews.

* "I am so in love with this beautiful chenille Helen made for my new guest room. She is very knowledgeable in the world of chenille. She worked with the bedspread and pillows I already had to compliment My new guest room. I had input on every step of the designing of the coverlet. Helen answered my questions and worked diligently to complete the beautiful project. Never would I hesitate to have Helen make a chenille spread or coverlet. Her supply of vintage chenille is remarkable. Thank you, Helen, for this beautiful piece of work."

"Helen is amazing and does amazing work! - she went above and beyond to ensure our satisfaction and complete approval. The quilt is gorgeous and forever will be a part of our granddaughter's life. Thanks again!"

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 quilt squares, but the overall quilt design is more appealing.

The philosophy that guides the selling of my handmade items is primarily customer centered, 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 FOR QUILTS*
With shipping costs having increased, I now bill shipping separately from the cost of the actual quilt. Shipping is NOT free unless specified as such, 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. I do ship internationally even though there are no countries named or shipping rates given. If you are an international customer, please convo me and I can calculate a shipping price for you.

My offerings also include decorative pillows fashioned using vintage chenille. They are made in different shapes and sizes, including hearts, that are so adorable in any feminine space. Patchwork and collage pillows in oblongs or squares make a nice decorative addition to any room. I love anything beachy, and I also design and create "Shabby Seashore" sea creatures such as sea horses, starfish, and angel fish

I have several vintage chenille bedspreads for sale. They are each in outstanding condition and have been soaked and laundered. They are all suitable for use or can be used for sewing projects.

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.
