One of our Runny Babbits quilts makes a unique and very personal gift!
Not only are you giving a practical gift, it’s also highly decorative and can become a treasured heirloom. A gift with lots of childhood memories and associations.
Traditionally made, patchwork quilts are truly beautiful.
Many less expensive quilts are made using dacron wadding with the layers very simply stitched together in straight lines.
We make our quilts from 100% cotton fabric with best quality cotton or high cotton-mix wadding (unless otherwise stated). Cotton is far more comfortable for baby to sleep under. They are then quilted on our longarm quilting machine with beautiful and sometimes very intricate stitch patterns. Not only does this enhance their natural beauty but most of all it gives them that traditional texture and handle. A quilt made in this way adds that romantic finishing touch to a nursery.
Customers can choose from the range of crib and cot quilts found on our website, or contact us for details of the quilts ‘tops’ we have waiting to be quilted. We always have a number in progress that are not shown on our website. These are at the perfect stage to be personalised. Alternatively you can commission a totally personal and individual quilt to be made for you. See our Design & Bespoke page.
While we don’t recommend a quilt as the baby’s main bedding until it is able to sit up independently or until 1 year old*, it can be used for cuddle time, tummy time and as a playmat up until that time.
For the intervening period we produce lined patchwork blankets you can use from birth, many in matching designs. You can then be use them as a travel blanket when the quilt becomes the main bedding.
Cushions are also available to match or co-ordinate with many of the quilts, adding that touch of luxury to the nursery.
We think you’ll agree, a Runny Babbits quilt makes a very special gift!
“Michèle is the most fantastic quilt maker and provides a second-to-none service – I can’t recommend her highly enough. When my father passed away before my first child was born, I wanted a special way to remember him to my child and Michèle made memory quilts for myself and my sister. We sent her some initial design ideas and she came up with some great designs that we absolutely loved. When we sent her my dad’s shirts, she dealt with them so sensitively and carefully and made the whole process of making the quilts collaborative and so so enjoyable. When the quilts arrived it was a hugely emotional experience for us and just a beautiful way to remember my dad and pass something on to our children – this was all thanks to Michèle and her wonderful skills and ways of working with her clients. In addition to this, she made such thoughtful touches throughout which were so meaningful and kind. I would not hesitate to recommend her or use her again.”

We are over the moon with it and I’m sure [our son] will cherish it for years to come.
We are so happy that we managed to find your website and feel we’ve got something that is truly unique to celebrate his first Christmas.
The quality of the quilt is outstanding. As you say on your website the photos really don’t do the quilts justice.
Thanks again for all your help and the high level of service you’ve provided us throughout. It’s been an absolute pleasure dealing with you and I’m sure we’ll be in touch again for another gift in the near future.”
