The highest quality baby quilts, handmade in Brooklyn, NY.

I am obsessed with color and patterns, but rubbish at drawing, so I search high and low for the perfect printed cottons to tell my story with. When they arrive in the mail, I sort through them and arrange them in color order on my tall red bookshelf. During that process, I set aside a favorite - the cutest blue dots, animals doing something adorable, or a pink I haven't used before. That leads to pulling other fabrics to coordinate and all of a sudden I have seven or eight ready to be made into a quilt.

Next - a shape materializes in my thoughts. I'm dying to do some triangles again, or stripes in various widths or lengths, or improvised squares and rectangles. I do a quick sketch to figure out sizes if needed, then start cutting.

I may sew deep into the evening, or put it aside to start fresh the next morning. I make each quilt in two or three long sessions of cutting, sewing, pressing, repeating. I can't help but take photos during the process and share them on Instagram (@nicole_boldgoods). You should follow along!

Hi and welcome to my store, Bold Goods. My name is Nicole and I design and sew baby quilts. My style can be described as modern, but often using classic colors. Quality is my main concern - the craft of the process is what keeps me interested and engaged. I am always looking for ways to improve my skill and make your quilts better and more beautiful.

I can also send it gift-wrapped, with a hand-written card, directly to the recipient - check out my listings to add that option.
Refunds and Exchanges
Is this quilt not what you expected? Do you wish the green was a little greener? Send me a message, and I will accept a return if the quilt is in the same condition I sent it, or send you an exchange, minus any shipping I have paid.
I always get insurance and tracking numbers on my packages. I cannot be responsible for damaged or lost items, but will follow up with insurance claims where appropriate.
Additional policies and FAQs
Want a custom quilt?

I might be willing to use fabric from your stash, or order fabrics of your choice, time permitting. This process will take 4-6 weeks.


Starting January 2013, I use the Etsy-recommended pricing process found here:

Each quilt requires between 7 and 13 hours of cutting, sewing, pressing and quilting. I never cut corners, because I am only interested in producing the highest quality quilts to last a long time. Differences in prices among quits may occur due to size, complexity, or quilting style of quilts. Hand quilting takes at least twice as long as machine quilting, but often adds just the right finishing touch to make a quilt special.
